I am still not even close to having read all Thommy out there and there is so much brilliant stuff to find and read but this story…

I Remember You by uberswelle

…has got to be one of the most devastatingly erotic, emotional, beautifully written, poetic, explicit-yet-classy Thommy love-making fanfics I have ever read. Goodness, Thomas in this one, OMFG! That takes ‘giving himself to Jimmy’ to another level and I’m talking about love, yo!

Oooh, thanks for the rec, tragic-cranky-porcelain-doll! Adding to my ever-expanding list of bookmarks,

Wow, this is the first Thomas first person fic I come across.

Will totes have a closer look at that.

This is my new favourite picture because: 1) Jimmy’s hair is being beautiful. Jimmy is beautiful. 2) Carson looks just so world-worn and typically Carson. 3) Thomas has his wonderful haughty expression on and damn that man fills his livery well. 4) Moseley feels.
That is all.
Edit: also the extreme squinting is cute.

Looking at those white footmens’ gloves …
The servant in the Anstruther/Jimmy scene doesn’t wear any. A further hint that it is Thomas? Cuz I cannot really detect The Glove. But everyone serving but Thomas and Carson would be wearing them tighty whities, no?

All good points, but this is Downton, the land of keeping one’s job and getting promoted after kissing a co-worker in his sleep because one is a fierce cricket player. True, that was between two servants whereas Jimmy and Lady A. is between the classes, but I repeat - this is Downton. The land of tea-tray-accident-avoidance cures for paralysis and lawyers who are heirs to earldoms as well as expectant fathers who neglect to write a will. Stranger things have happened.

Plus, if Thomas saves Edith’s life, he can shame Robert into letting Jimmy stay.

Heheeh, Leela :D

I am so curious how Jimmy manages (or others for him) not to get the boot, if it is Robert who catches them. Why should Robert spare him? Cuz his momma likes her footmen looking like footmen in a musical revue?

I DO wonder, because wasn’t quite clear that it was Thomas’s job at stake? And two footmens’ career at stake in one episode?

I dunno - you know, yah, trailer and red wallpaper, yes, yes, all true and even I do barely dare say that it may happen otherwise.
BUT also: trailer scene where Thomas is listening at the door before entering. Yah, I know it is probably Edith’s door.

But if Thomas witnesses something between Lady A and JimJam during dinner, he HAS to intervene if not as a friend but also as Jimmy’s superior. And if Thomas surprises them he of course would cover up for Jimmy.

Every now and again I watch series 4 trailer and remember how we all thought Jimmy was gonna get his punk ass beat up by Alfred and maybe he would cry and the scene in it was all dramatic and it turned out to be a fight with a jam jar.

A jam jar fight appearing like a major brawl - I bet the cutters/editors were very proud of themselves. And rightly so, rightly so.

So I am still hoping for Thomas catching Kenstruther in bed, and not Lord G - even though, yeah, I know, the wallpaper …

LET ME HOPE, A’RIGHT!

More thoughts, again:

The way Fellowes tends to write romance (at least on Downton) is that he likes to make characters suffer, work for love, and become better people in order to earn it from the narrative. 

So when applying it to Thommy… though I think Thomas has plenty ‘earned it’ already I’m not sure those pesky casual viewers would agree *rolls eyes*, and Jimmy hasn’t really done anything big yet either. Maybe s5 will be them (but especially Jimmy) “earning it”?

Wasn’t there a really good meta about this already?

Yeah we’ve talked about that (long ago) and I totally agree! I JUST REALLY HOPE IT’S JIMMY HE’S EARNING.

Aw man, I’d forgotten about that but yeah it’s completely true, you have to work for your love on Downton.

Anonymous asked:

Makes me wonder, if Jimmy really leaves and it was because Ed wanted to leave, how much of the planned Thommy storyline (be it friendship or more) had to be thrown out of the window? It's like a lot of the stuffering and heartbreak in this show has been caused by actors leaving rather than the writers wanting to make them suffer. Should Jimmy really leave and it is not because of Ed but a planned storyline then that's just Thomas and fandom cruelity. Same with Daisy. I mean enough already!

causeimdifferent answered:

That’s my bet. If Jimmy leaves it is not because Fellowes wanted him to. (see my comment here ).

He introduced him as Thomas’s love interest.

Reblogging for comments. I agree - all those hints can’t possibly have been for nothing.

yeah but Fellowes fucked up season 4 for Thomas and Jimmy and I was already afraid back then that Ed or Rob (or both) wanted to leave….  …and now Fellowes doesn’T have time to make Thommy happen the way he probably wanted to…. =(

I admit: Yah, the last part sucks. I agree, Ed’s many absences indicate that he’s leaving. So if that is the case:

FUCK YOU, ED.

HOW DARE YOU SPOIL THE ROMANCE OF THE BLOODY CENTURY*.

It would not only be a waste of character and storyline but also a waste of chemistry between the actors. Gaah!

* he would not do that, would he now. Naw … come on, Ed is too bloody nice for such a dick move. Possibly. Perhaps.

But you know what? I like this optimism thingy so I still believe that Fellowes makes up for the painful neglect of plot for Thommy in S4 in whatever way.
