    Summary

    This is an attempt to bring some sort of happiness to Lady Dedlock, who is a victim of her times.

    It is also something that’s been lingering on my mind since I watched “Bleak House” and found out there’s an actual SPONTANEOUS HUMAN COMBUSTION in the story. So I decided to mashup two characters portrayed by a couple of my favourite actors.

    Trigger warning: rape/non con only on Chapter 21.

    Summary

    Some familiar scenes from Bleak House, set in the present day. Esther, not as monochromatically "nice" as Dickens portrayed her, is a 25-year-old solicitor set on claiming her rightful inheritance. In this updated version, Esther performs the functions that other characters perform in the original, rightly reflecting the expanded agency that women have today. The "big reveal" comes at the beginning. The question is, what will she do with this information and how will things be resolved.

    Summary

    A Sequel to the original "Lady Dedlock's Other Secret", so you need to read that first. An adult-only alternative plot line for My Lady. Shows how the course of true love does not run smooth; takes My Lady through some difficult times, but (a reassurance, not a spoiler) there is a happy ending.

    And opera lovers: see if you can catch the "homage" to Tosca.

    Summary

    Almost fourteen years have passed since John Bridgens was separated from the love of his life, Henry. At first, John made an adequate living rising through the ranks of the Royal Navy, but since then, John’s fortunes have fallen into ruin. Barely keeping himself alive on the meagre wages of a law-writer and constantly longing for his lost love, John believes he has very little left to live for. In despair, he turns to opium. 

    A crossover between AMC’s The Terror (2018) and BBC’s Bleak House (2005), based on the Charles Dickens serial narrative of the same name and the fact that John Lynch is terminally lovely in both shows as John Bridgens and Mr. Nemo / James Hawdon, respectively. 

    You really don’t need to know anything about Bleak House to read this – I certainly didn’t, to write it!

    Summary

    In which; Ada meddles, Jarndyce feels old, Esther pines and Caddy worries.

    I really love this pairing, even though I know they do not get together in the book (SPOILERS). I just love them and it won't leave me alone so I wanted to do a fanfic on these two ARGH the feels.

    I know there are many Allan Woodcourt fans, don't worry there will be no bashing.

    I don't own Bleak House, or any characters or adaptations (I'm no Charles Dickens).
