18. Fan Fic Recs for Patsan!
Let me preface this by saying that there are so many incredibly talented writers and wonderful stories in the Downton Abbey fandom and I wish I could name them all, but I’ve already spent two hours doing just ten so I’m afraid you’ll just have to work your way down the list and get back to me if you want more recommendations. ;)
Consequences Of The Castle By Of Sandwiches and Sea Monsters (Aka Orangeshipper and Silvestria)
I love this fic because it is so heartfelt and emotional to read! And you know, the smut is nice too *cough*.
Thoroughly Modern Mary By Silvestria
Flapper Mary! And the flirting was very racy! I loved Matthew and Mary’s interaction!
Of Course It’s The End How Could It Not Be By Orangeshipper
And its new sequel (which I squeal at every time it get’s updated)
An End To All Things By Orangeshipper
Both of these fics are so tragic and tender. I love the way Carlisle is written in both fics. I can’t recommend them enough!
Not For Turning By eitoph
I loved the political aspect to this fic. The world of Downton transfers very well to the world of politics!
Downton Abbey & Zombies By The Yankee Countess
The title days it all! I admit that I was reluctant to try this fic at first, simply because I’m not a zombie lover, but I love it. It is so incredibly intense! It’s always very exciting, and again works in the world of Downton.
Home Is Where The Heart Is By miss Kittyplank
This is just such a well executed piece of fan fiction. I love the progression of the characters, and how real they were to me.
Strangers In The Night By Orangeshipper
Matthew and Mary play sexy strangers. My heart almost EXPLODED!
Never Before By EOlivet
Honestly, this fic gets me every time. I’m in love with both the premise and the execution of it. Heartbreaking and wonderful every time I read it!
I Will Love Thee Still, My Dear By Pemonynen
I can count on one hand the amount of times a fan fic has made me cry. This one made me sob! It was incredible!
