August 1924, Downton Village
“Shh, darling, it won’t be long now,” Mary whispered to her son as she held him on her lap. 
He rubbed his eyes with his hand and turned to her, hiding his face into her shoulder, a small, petulant sigh leaving his lips. 
He grabbed the lapel of her light coat and squeezed it between his fingers. 
“When can I play?” he asked in a small voice, looking up at her. 
“In a little while,” she said with a smile, caressing his cheek. 
He sighed, resting his head against her, and Mary pressed a kiss to his hair. 
On the stage, her father spoke briefly, and Mary pointed his figure to her son. 
“Doesn’t grandpa look fine in his uniform?” she asked quietly. She looked over at the Earl fondly as she spoke, but then her gaze lingered a little more appreciatively on the man standing next to him. 
Both of them had a grave expression on their face, and Mary pressed her lips together as she recalled the ashen shade of her husband’s face early that morning. 
“S’ppose,” George murmured, and then yawned, rubbing his eyes again.

Ten years after the break of war, Downton honours its fallen and Mary attends a special memorial with her son, while her husband stands beside the Earl of Gratham on stage. Based on BTS pics and videos (so possible SPOILERS). S5 AU.
My thanks to darkblueyank, for her help in making my English a little better and for talks on how the mind of a three years old boy would work, to thefoodofloveismusic for her lovely cover (click of HD) and her incredible patience, and to thedowntonhistorian for some useful historical information.
The characters of Downton Abbey, obviously, do not belong to me, but, boy, do I have fun playing with them :P
Enjoy!

The Hungover Games Chapter 9
https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10155553/9/The-Hungover-Games
Ch 1: https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10155553/1/The-Hungover-Games
I know I claimed I would be working on another story first, but this is what came out when I sat down to write in bits and pieces this week with an exhausted body and stressed mind. It is one of three what I refer to as my “Stress-Relief” stories, the other two being Play Dates and Park Benches and Locked In, so I do hope you enjoy it. 
There are three “Easter Eggs” in this chapter: fun little surprises, I guess I should say. One related to DA, and two others related to two of my other favorite shows. Let me know if you discover them. :)
And don’t worry…I have not forgotten my other fics. Have a lovely Monday!

Fandom wars on fanfic, but lol! Didn’t come across any post (lucklily), but really, is it so hard to just enjoy what we like and ignore the rest or respectfully disagree? Fandom wars suck the fun out of everything, which is so silly, isn’t it?

There is something constantly simmering beyond the surface, a tag here, a remark there, a anon-message somewhere else… and I dread its near explosion - the new series will start soon and this weakens truces.
