    Summary

    She thought she would never see her again. But yet, there she sits, rocking back and forth in the rocking chair, a plaid shawl draped over her broad shoulders. She was writing in a beaten up leather notebook, a focused intensity as she scribbled furiously. Even from a distance, Ann can see that she still has the fountain pen that Ann gifted to her so long ago. She clutches weakly at her throat in a bid to prevent a sob. After all these years, she only had to look at her and all the old feelings return to her.

    "Anne," Ann whispers softly.

    In her early 50s and diagnosed with terminal cancer, she spends the rest of her limited days at a hospice. Ann Walker was certain that she was to pass away having not resolved her past mistakes. One day, her one wish was granted.

    Summary

    In 1919, after having (accidentally) shoved one of her tenants into a wall and (not so accidentally) tried to run off to join the Air Force, Anne Lister is invited to leave the Shibden estate.

    With few options left for her in Britain, Miss Lister travels to New York, on the journey meeting a fellow Englishwoman - the wealthy heiress, Ann Walker, sent to the US in the hope of finding a doctor who can cure her seemingly endless aches and pains.

    However, Miss Walker’s troubles are quickly attributed to ‘lack of the vote’ by the enigmatic, (and maybe rather snobbish) Miss Lister, (suffering occasionally from the same kind of pain) who puts herself immediately to work curing her friend of both her physical ailments and a lifelong loneliness.

    Get ready for glamour, gangsters, new money and, of course, a budding forbidden romance as Anne juggles rescuing an oil company with securing the hand of the love of her life.

    (Or, the one where Anne Lister was born a century later and had more of a chance.)

    Summary

    "Anne breathed in her scent- citrus and soap. She smirked to herself as she thumbed through her book, more focused on the way the woman’s small hands twisted nervously in her hair, legs bouncing, than the words on the page. No ring, she mused, eventually giving up and closing the book. Anne noted a small rainbow flag was pinned to the backpack that she had pushed under the seat in front of her. A smile crept across Anne’s face and she leaned her head back into her seat. She didn’t usually feel so pulled to strangers, but the way this girl bit her lip as she lifted her perfectly sculpted neck to look around...Anne felt undone."

    OR The one where Anne and Ann meet on an airplane.

    TW: Ann struggles heavily with anxiety and depression.

    Summary

    A spin off of my crossover but predominantly Call the Midwife based fic, 'Nocturne'. Probably helps to read that but I'll try to make this readable without the need.

    Patsy wasn't the only one taken, beaten, destroyed, experimented upon and used in all manner of ways. Patsy wasn't the only one that was special to one of their captors. Patsy wasn't the only one but a part of Ann Walker wishes she was.

    **Dark. D. A. R. K. Abuse of many kinds. Very much full of angst. Almost every trigger warning should be in place, I think. Be cautious. Slow burn, as well. On that note, I hope you enjoy.**

    Summary

    "Ann holds onto James’s hand for dear life. Her palms are clammy, and there’s an odd queasy sensation in her insides. This is the boldest thing she’s ever decided to do. She’s fancied Anne Lister for years. Fancied her before she even knew whether or not Anne was gay (the day she received confirmation by stumbling across her pressing some girl up against a locker had been both glorious and heartbreaking.) But Anne is single now. Has been for a while now as far as she knows and she’s decided to do something about it—she can’t let Anne go off to university without ever having tried. "

    Or Ann asks Anne on a date but she doesn't realize because she thinks James and Ann are a couple.
