The Fourth Lady Crawley by PananaPotterhead Ruth Crawley is the youngest of the Crawleys, and the most different. Struggling to find her place in the world, this story follows her through her journey of discovery, where not all is what it seems. Will include Robert/Cora and Mr Carson/Mrs Hughes mainly other than my OC Ruth. Mostly canon at the start but with my own twists :)
