… that’s a very telling scene.

The way he explains this and the look on his face just make me emotional. <3

So glad this is making the rounds again.

Ok, I’m late to the party here, and just have one thing to say. I’m staying out of the whole debate on whether this should have happened on DA, others have done a better job. My point is about the reaction of some fans who are saying that ” this was so sudden, Green didn’t have enough interaction…

Here they all are, thanks to Maggie Gyllenhaal who knows that if you come across a door at Ealing that’s labelled “Mr. Bates” YOU GO IN. 

‘Course if you’re not Maggie Gyllenhaal, you’ll probably get the boot. 

Praise the universe for Maggie Gyllenhaal!

‘Anna has been doing her best Miss Marple impression throughout this series as she tries to free Mr Bates and she finally uncovers some crucial evidence. But, alas, back in prison Bates isn’t helping himself and his actions threaten any chance he might have of being released.

Ok now I’m…

Anna: I have to say something that you won’t agree with. We’re going to get married.
Bates: Don’t be silly. We can’t, not now.
Anna: You’re not listening. You’re going to Ripon tomorrow to get a special license—I don’t care how much it costs—and fix a day. We’ll tell no one, but this you will do.
Bates: I can’t.
Anna: Aren’t I as strong as Lady Sybil?
Bates: I don’t doubt that.
Anna: Well, then. If she can do it, so can we. That’s what I’ve been thinking.

Anna: “I’m not sorry, you know. Not a bit. I would marry you now if I wasn’t already your wife. I would.”

John: “God knows I’m not sorry either. Maybe I should be, but no man can regret loving as I have loved you.”

Back in the day when things were simpler and they were happy and there was no Vera and no prison and their biggest problems were Thomas and O&#8217;Brien&#8217;s scowls and I can&#8217;t because everything has gone to hell! Damn you, Fellowes! Make my OTP happy again so they can make some babays!

The Carson’s Modern Day A/U
It’d has been years since anyone in the Carson family have ever truly spoken to one another. Charles and Elsie let their marriage fade into the background after the kids. Her a Social Worker juggling three kids and him being a Detective Inspector going off on the whim of a phone call. 


Over the years the kids have grown up and gone on with their lives.


Thomas a political reporter who recently came out to his parents. Never knowing when his next payday will come. Thomas scraps by from food from his mum and money from his Aunt when ever he really needs help.


Anna, the middle child, is a secretary for the Crawley’s (Friends of her father.) there she ends up falling for her co-worker John Bates, who has a dark past and even more troubling divorce.


Lastly there is William, a sweet boy who everyone seems to over look. He works as a busboy in a pub while he moonlights as a pianist in a jazz club. He can’t seem gather up the nerve to tell his parents (or siblings.) that he has given up on uni to take up acting.

Someone write this for me please - I want it so bad! *grabby hands*
