    Summary

    One muggy night in 1892, the heir to the Crawley estate was snatched away from his crib and stolen into the night. Thirty years later, new evidence is uncovered that might just bring the missing Crawley home. It’s a massive task, and only one man in the abbey has the stones for the job… so Lady Mary decides to hire him as her personal detective. Unfortunately for Thomas Barrow, this case is about to get incredibly personal.

    Summary

    As butler of Downton Abbey, Thomas Barrow sees and hears all. You'd think people would have that figured out by now. When Mr. Talbot hires an old friend from the war to work at his car shop, Thomas isn't sure he likes what he sees, or hears, or... feels.

    A self-indulgent reaction to the end of the last season. This fic is not in line with the movie.

    Summary

    "You remember, I told you about my grandparents’ farmhouse up near Harrogate, spent a couple of summers there as a boy. Lovely country.”

    “You said, yeah.”

    “Well, it - the house, that is - stayed in the family after the old folks passed away. My parents’re always saying they’d ideally like to move there and leave me the York house in due course, but the place needs some serious tender loving care before then. Anyway, I’ve been thinking my Mum probably wouldn’t mind if I went up there for a couple days, did a bit of dusting and weeding. Only a bit, mind.” Richard chuckles and falls silent for a minute. “So, er… how’s that sound for a getaway?”

    Thomas and Richard form a connection during the royal visit and spend one night together. Letters and phone calls follow, but like any pair of new lovers, they hanker for a little privacy. The Ellises' farmhouse in the Yorkshire countryside proves just the ticket.
