    Thomas Barrow made it. He had never thought it were possible to reach his goals, but in the end he had. He sits outside on a cold November night, recanting the story from his point of view to John Bates. From his beginning, to his start at the Abbey, and all the things that led to what made Thomas Barrow who he is. And a hell of a tale it is.

    Summary

    Thomas, quite honestly, had no idea how he’d managed to land himself in this situation. Huddling in the bottom of a too shallow foxhole, covered in another man’s blood with bullet after German bullet whistling over his head? Now that wasn’t all that unusual these days. Unfortunately.

    But huddling in the bottom of a foxhole with William bloody Mason pressed up against one side, Captain Matthew Crawley on the other?

    And an exhausted Lord Grantham himself sprawled in the mud at the feet of the three of them!?

    “Well then chaps,” the Lord turned Lieutenant-Colonel huffed with entirely too much forced cheer. “I don’t know what you’re thinking, but I’m solidly of the opinion that we’re utterly ruddy ballocksed!”

    Yeah, Thomas was at least half sure he was actually dead already. Or at the very least suffering from a rather severe concussion.

    Summary

    Phyllis, Andy and Mrs Hughes are too late to save Thomas.
    But whoever said death was the end?

     

    “Well, whatever,” Thomas said to himself.
    Death was not so bad so far, but it was also incredibly anti-climatic. Thomas had expected some angels to smite him, some level of cosmic retribution, at least; something to validate everything he had to endure during his life.
