I think I may have finally finished reading all the (current) submissions for Andith Fest! (Though I’m hoping a few more will come shortly.)

They were all delightful!

I’m so honored to be a part of such a great group of writers!

You have given me back my life.

Pastoral visits

I was visiting one of my new parishioners who has just recently had surgery, and we got to talking about every little this and that. And I was thinking about how much I like her when we started talking about television….

I now know an 83 year old Downton Abbey fanatic WHO SHIPS CHELSIE!

God has sent me to the right place.

I wonder if she reads fanfiction…?

Naaaah.

It is good for the soul! Divine Providence. 👍

Does wacky stuff actually happen on the set of Downton Abbey?

Allen Leech: “The wacky stuff normally happens off set. If you bear in mind we have 22 main characters hanging out in hotels.”

-

can this please be a spin-off?

One reality show I would watch…

 Fanfic: Growing Into You Ch 9, Downton Abbey | FanFiction

tammyteresa64:

This is about Sybbie growing up but this chapter and a couple before are about Edith and her little girl who lives with the Drewes and Sybbie meets her in school and protects her from bullies. I can’t seem to tag a couple others people in the Edith fandom so any help would be good.

Watch how Anthony doesn’t look at Tom, or Matthew, or even Larry, as Matthew makes his announcement. No, he’s looking at ROBERT, to see how he reacts.

This is literally what Terry Pratchett wears to conventions. 

What a good thing is Terry Pratchett.


Indeed he is.  I have personally seen him wear this T-shirt at a convention in the UK>.

Can I just thank everyone who participated in the Andith Fest…the stories, and the art, and the camaraderie of discussion here and on FF.net…all so wonderful.
I fell in love with Edith and Anthony all over again.

Hey Baron, it ain’t over yet! It’s only the 5th day of Andith Fest! I get until at least Saturday to post my second contribution, right? Right?!

Absolutely fine by me!

A drawing of mine of Lady Edith Crawley, from Downton Abbey. I had so much fun doing this, and I think the harshness of the lines really suits the tastes of the time period it takes place in, 1920s Britain.

Wow! We we just bemoaning the lack of good (as in your case, or, indeed, any) artists in our ship. Thank you, Sir!

Thank you for the compliment! Maybe I’ll get round to drawing Anthony Strallan too…!

That would be more than wonderful, if you could!  As you say, the harsh lines and angles are very Art Deco.  It must be lovely to have such a talent.

Of course I missed Andith fest. But I will have an offering, albeit a late one.

Of course we missed you…I just thought/hoped that you had something more enjoyable to do!

Nothing so fun I’m afraid. Work event I was running the booth at. But I’m thinking a very fun installment of Windmills for the Andith occasion.

Ok, so in the continuing theory that Andith Fest is a week, if I can get it scribbled out I have an idea for a one-shot kind of an epilogue to The Bluestocking…..

Egad!  I like your style, madam.

Highclere Castle Photo Album Pt. II

Here’s the other album!  See some familiar spots?  The columns where Lady Edith cried after receiving her letter from P. Gordon, Lady Edith’s bedroom (which is blurry because I had to take it on the fly…pics weren’t allowed inside the castle, but I took one for you dear followers!), and of course, the atrium of the castle (also taken clandestinely lol).  

Also, adjacent to the castle is a little pasture called Penelope’s Wood…and guess what kind of trees grow there: Rowan trees, as in Rowan Crawley from my Andith fic, Now and Then!  Like, if that’s not a total sign, I don’t know what is ;)

All and all, it was a perfect day.  Now, I’m in the conversations with the lovely lady who owns Hall Barn (aka Locksley Manor) about seeing it after she returns from holiday and before I leave for Belgium and Italy with my mom next week.  I’ll keep you Andith shippers updated…wouldn’t it be wonderful if one of us could go inside of our dear couple’s abode?!?!?!

Check out Pt. I here!
