36Drops in the River » A thorough look of series two milestones with Matthew through Mary's eyes. Slightly AU, some scenes original but it sticks to the script in other places. Mary & Matthew war angst, essentially. Lots of dialogue and internal struggles abound! T for dark themes, romance in later chapters.

12 Matthew Before War Matthew visits Lord Grantham to share news of his enlistment and runs into Mary along the way. An exploration of their relationship, in one short evening, and how things will change in the face of war...and bring out their love for each other. Very much from Matthew's perspective and is set after their break up, after the war announcement but before Matthew has left. Oneshot.

6 Natural Disaster Summer returns home months after Marissa's death to fix things. There is a morbid bond between Ryan and herself now and she seeks him out to find comfort. More friendship focused than romance. Slightly AU.

11 Daisychains Lily and Sirius find comfort in the strangest of places on a particularly tragic evening. No cheating and a brief flashback of romantic involvement. About friendship and James makes an appearance, too. Rated for language.

6 Stealing Kisses LilySirius oneshot that's not too heavy on the cheating bit, more of an emotional kind. A bit of a darker mood.

13 Hold Fast A oneshot that explores Lily during her pregnancy and her relationship with Sirius throughout. It's not very specific on certain details but they're better left to the imagination. Not really a romance.

13 Autumn Lily's perspective on the loves and losses in her life. A bit dramatic, a bit of angst, a bit of romance.

12 It Came Upon a Midnight Clear A little oneshot about Lily and James at Christmas. It's more about James's thoughts of Lily and his affection for her, than it is about Christmas. It's fluffy and sappy and I loved writing it. :]

12 Dusk & Summer Lily and James oneshot, a short moment between the two on a summer evening. The world seems to be moving at a faster rate than Lily can keep up with and James just happens to be her stability amongst it all.

18 Summer Skin A neat little Lily & James, oneshot [[could become more, something like a miniseries]]. From Lily's perspective, just a moment inside her head on a July afternoon. It's a bit messy and incomplete, but it's something.
