‘Cause when the evening comes We’re like fire in the rain When the night’s begun Our desire heals the pain And the dreams we share They are never gonna fade It’s because of love we’re standing here today [x]
A shipper tends to watch the episodes with a certain focus for Moments. Moments that are 90% wishful thinking and 10% ‘sure, maybe’.
In S2.5, everyone gathers in the Great Hall to hear news of Matthew and William, but I find myself noticing two particular characters entrance in the scene was together and bringing up the rear of the group:
Character(s)/Pairing(s): Anna Smith, John Bates; Anna/Bates
Fic Summary: Modern AU.
If Anna had been told three years ago that the week of her sister’s wedding would change her own life for good, she probably would have wondered what on earth they had been smoking. She had longed for more, it was true, but she would certainly not have believed that such a clichéd scenario would have brought her together with the man that she was in love with.
Warnings: A few swear words, mentions of sex, long word count (22,000 words).
So I have already tried my hand at two fanfic tropes: Coffeeshop AU and Flowershop AU. I could not resist the idea of writing a Fake!Dating AU and a Bed Sharing AU, so I thought I would combine them both here. Based on two prompts from this set.
