This was an intense night of television for me. First DA and then The Walking Dead.

Belle Epoque - Marcus/Esca, various DA characters, Violet Crawley narration [author given GA (general audiences) rating - 11,000 words] by Songbird.

Many thanks to [ profile] cobweb_diamond for linking to this in her journal. This fic fills my heart with unspeakable joy. One, because it's so beautifully and so subtlely Marcus/Esca. And two, because it's at the core (literally and figuratively) of everything I love about Downton Abbey.

Admittedly, in my hands, I would have reversed Esca and Marcus's roles. Marcus is the Grantham's new chauffeur and Esca plays a distant relative of the Crawleys/Granthams. He's a favourite of Violet's, and she dotes on him in turn, even encourages his amorous inclinations. And yes, this is from her POV wherein her weapons of word and wit dwarf Cupid's bow and arrow justly. Nobody delivers better lines than Violet Crawley, I tell you.

Neatly tucked into the folds of DA canon are Oxford scholar Esca and French Foreign Legionnaire Marcus. Shortly after they first meet, they go butterfly hunting together. BUTTERFLY HUNTING ♥ Their paths cross here and there over the years and a great fondness develops for the other. Aided, of course, by Violet's own memory of a past paramour and what could have been and never was. The tone, the setting, the voices are all wonderfully spot on. There are a few Americanisms, fair warning, but nothing that personally gave me pause long enough. This is a delightful read for fans of one or both fandoms. Just lovingly told and voiced ♥

Enjoy all!

Maggie Smith is brilliant.
