Here’s a compilation of the Anna/Bates drabbles I’ve been posting if anyone wants to see them all in one place.


There’s a new header thingy on the ITV Downton page! (x)

Is that Robert back from America?

I made this a while ago and I just realized I hadn’t posted it on Tumblr… so since I’m missing Downton Abbey and the Bates terribly I decided to just leave it here, you could also check out a cool coloured version over my Behance page :)

So good.

Day 21 - Silent

They are both silent. It’s dark and cold outside, but Anna doesn’t feel cold. He has his arm around her shoulders, and she takes a deep breath. He is reading a book, and while she would normally ask him to read for her, she isn’t particularly in the mood. He turns the page. His hand strokes her skin softly through the nightgown, but he’s too engrossed in the book to notice.

She hugs him closer to her, resting her ear against his chest, and listens to his heartbeat. She takes a deep breath and feels his scent, and thinks that he won’t leave her anymore. She wants to be able to listen to his breathing and his heartbeat and to have him warm her up every night for the rest of her life.

And that is enough, for now.

annamays:

Day 20 - Anger

For a long time, she was angry. Angry that he wanted to protect her, angry that he left her, angry that he offered no explanations, angry that he didn’t write. Angry that there didn’t seem to be any regret from him, even though she was sure, she just knew that he was protecting her from something. Her noble, annoyingly gallant John Bates - still the love of her life.

When she went after him, she didn’t know what to expect from herself. She didn’t know what she would feel once she looked into his eyes and demanded a proper explanation - hoping that there was one. She loved him so, so much, but she was so angry. She felt her walls crumbling down as soon as she heard his voice, and when he said those words to her - however, whatever, whenever - she knew she would never be able to stay mad at him for long.

I don’t know why but just the idea of John Bates as the Cinema Snob makes me chuckle.
