Beautiful. Absolutely stunning, too, how someone can capture the vastness of the Downton plots in one writing. Thank you for your carefully-chosen words; they do credit to your writing. The entire reminiscence of the beloved, late Matthew Crawley is perfect. Wonderful job with writing in Matthew's perspective. I enjoyed all of it, but the ending tied it up exceptionally.

You did it again…
I am reliving all these scenes and my heart breaks. I want M/M..
I love Matthew's point of view…his love for Mary and now his son, the future, the fear of dead.
I really love this story and I have no words except to echo all those wonderful reviews panned by the other readers.

"And he would, oh how he would, love her until he was gasping and breaking and leaving the world, love her even beyond the last breath, beyond death, if he could, if there was a beyond, if he could love her from a that schism, that world afar." hahahahaha you are horrible. this was so lovely and filled with a vibrant energy that just flowed effortlessly through everything. so much hope and love, and everything that will never be.

f*ck you dan stevens.

Beautifully written! Well done but so sad. How can I not be over his
Death yet? This was comforting though.

First off - the one-shot is NOT pointless at all; it fullfills all the points of story-telling - it entertains and makes us think and reflect and feel.
Second - I am glad that you are doing some Matthew point-of-view and I think you got it right in how he judges his actions toward Mary in the past and his intent for the future. Not necessarily that his judgements are correct but that that's what they would be.
Which part do I like the best - your final section. You encapsulated the changing life-views and values of a couple after the arrival of the baby so well and expressed them so eloquently.
And finally - my only quibble is with some of the late-20th century expressions: hands-on, grounded, cheesy - and I think a man in Matthew's time would envision or express his desire to be present in his children's lives in a different way that the same man would in the present day. I hope my quibbling doesn't irk you too much - I only quibble because your writing is worth it. Bad writing doesn't deserve quibbles.
