Got a pleasant surprise in my mailbox today! Signed by Heidi&Stephen.😘🤗

Sometimes I just think about how Thomas and Baxter saved each other’s lives. Like obviously in season six Baxter physically saves Thomas’s life, but in a different way, Thomas also saves Baxter’s life. When Baxter got out of prison, she probably thought she had no future. She had a criminal record and no good references so she would never be able to get a respectable job again and would probably live the rest of her life in poverty. I think at some point Sergeant Willis mentions that out of all the women Coyle manipulated, two of them ended up in prostitution and at least one of them was dead. It is very likely that Baxter could have suffered the same fate.

But then Thomas steps in and offers to get her the job at Downton. Now, of course he’s acting mainly out of self-interest, but it is Thomas, after all—if he’s going to do a huge favor for someone, he’s going to expect to get something in return. So then Baxter gets the job and Thomas thinks that he will finally have another ally in the house that will help him gain power, but it turns out that Baxter is too nice and too timid to be a good spy so Thomas’s plan backfires. I don’t condone the way he bullies her and exploits her weakness but I do understand why he’s upset because they had a deal and now she’s not living up to her promise. I’m glad Baxter ultimately makes an effort to repair her relationship with Thomas because even though he didn’t treat her well, she still owes him a huge debt. Thanks to Thomas, she got a highly respected job with an employer that likes her, she made a lot of new friends with her fellow servants, she met Mr. Molesley aka the man that would eventually become the love of her life, and she gained back some strength and self-confidence and started to heal from her past abuse. She has all these good things in her life because Thomas put in a word for her and got her the job. Baxter is grateful and repays her debt to Thomas with love and kindness and support, and they become like brother and sister. Anyway, their friendship is one of my favorite aspects of the show and I think it’s important not to forget that Thomas has played a big role in improving Baxter’s life.

Thomas Barrow-Robert James-Collier and Richard Ellis-Max Brown in Downton Abbey The Official Film Companion

Okay, so I’m going to try this again since I accidentally deleted the one I made a few days ago.

This is a list of all my favorite Downton fanfics! Mostly Baxley, since they are my main OTP.

These are the fics I go back and read and reread over and over again, and I would like to share them with all of you since the movie is out now and we have more people coming into the fandom.

There are spoilers for the series in the fics. This is NOT a complete list!

Let me know if any of the links don’t work.

Happy reading!

Outside the Lines by nanniships @revfrog

Rating: T

Joe Molesley is approaching a mid life crisis running the flower shop that has been in his family for generations. He is driven to distraction when a tattoo parlor opens in the shop next to his and meets the owner and head artist of the tattoo parlor - Phyllis Baxter, a woman with a past and life issues of her own. What happens when the ink is permanent?

Outside the Receiving Lines

Rating: T

Got a prompt for a proposal, so I paid a little visit to my “Outside the Lines” universe for an “almost” one. My apologies, but this won’t make a lot of sense if you haven’t already read “Outside the Lines.” Two years on and things are changing.

The Fitness Phenomenon

Rating: T

Joe Molesley received a free one day pass to his local fitness center and everything changes. Baxley Modern AU.

By Hand

Rating: K+

I took a lovely, simple prompt about Phyllis Baxter making her own wedding dress and turned into this lumbering pile of fluff. Enjoy the eight week, pre-wedding, play-by-play mostly from Phyllis’ perspective.One Last Dance

Rating: K+

Baxley one shot based on an OTP prompt: Imagine your OTP ballroom dancing with no one else around, just enjoying themselves and each other’s company. Just because everyone goes to bed doesn’t mean the party is over ;)

Truth in Advertising

Rating: M

When miss-baxter dangles a prompt like this one in front of me, what am I supposed to do? The only real otp question that matters is which one has an oversized shirt with “SEX MACHINE” written on it in impact font and always wears it at the worst times possible? Starts out as T, but might keep going. Who knows…

Cold Feet

Rating: K+

I had this prompt floating around and it gave me Baxley feels while my home internet was down. “Person A and Person B are getting married, but person B get’s cold feet, and person A has to talk them down.” I tried to make it potentially canon; not so sure if that worked.

Hairpin Turns

Rating: K

Joseph Molesley and Phyllis Baxter are keeping their recent engagement quiet in light of the impending royal visit. Unfortunately, neither of them is very good at it, and a staff photo session leads to everything coming out.

Just a Trim

Rating: K

A little Baxley at the beginning of their courtship. Post S5, minor spoilers (honestly, if you haven’t seen the Christmas special, you may want to wait to read this). My first attempt at these characters, so I’m just getting a feel for them.

Dawn of a New Beginning by sliceofperfection @docmacmillan

Rating: T

The loss of a beloved memory of the Crawley family serves as the catalyst for Baxter & Molesley finally admitting their feelings to one another. But life is often full of surprises, and their union might not begin quite like they planned.A Stroke of Luck 

Rating: T

Phyllis Baxter’s life changes whenever she receives an offer to work at Downton Abbey. But what she doesn’t expect to find is a kindred spirit in the affable, Mr. Molesley. A story about two unlucky people who find someone special when they least expect it. Will feature other characters as well as they relate to Baxter/Molesley’s story lines. Written for 2014 NaNoWriMo.In the Still of the Night

Rating: T

“It was on these nights that she often quietly worked on her latest textile project, and he found himself lost in one of his many books.” A domestic one-shot that looks into an evening spent by Phyllis Baxter & Joseph Molesley as if they were married. Inspired by a tumblr post & requested to be written by an anon.

Past Regrets & Present Dilemmas

Rating: T

Cora requests Baxter disclose the full extent of her story in order to make a decision about her maid’s future employment at Downton. Initially reluctant for the shame such a revelation might cause her, a nightly exchange with Mr. Molesley, gives her reason to reconsider. Will she stay, or will she go?

Thieves by alchemine @alchemine

Rating: T

Baxter promised Lady Grantham she would never commit another crime again, and she meant it. But on a summer trip to visit Cora’s family in New York, chance will bring her into closer contact with criminal acts than she wants to be. (Post-s6)

If You Insist

Rating: T

Molesley’s received a troubling letter from Baxter. Who better to vent to about it than a harassed and reluctant Thomas? A companion piece to “Thieves,” this is what the boys are getting up to at home while Phyllis is tangling with criminals in New York.

Spirits

Rating: T

While trapped in the attic during a power cut, Miss Baxter learns that at Downton Abbey, dead isn’t always gone. (Some Baxley)

60 Pubs in York by CeeCeeSings @ceeceesings

Rating: K

My first foray into Baxley fic. As the title implies, the story will revolve around their journeys and investigations in York, to exonerate Bates for the murder of Mr. Greene. As my Chelsie readers know, I tend to write in-canon, but there’s lots of empty canvas with these two. I hope to fill some of it in satisfactorily.

Phoenix Rising 

Rating: K+

A Baxley “first kiss” fic. Takes place during the events of the show’s finale a wee bit longer afterwards. There’s a reason Phyllis checked her hair in the mirror prior to trying to catch Edith’s bouquet! This is a companion to my Baxley story “60 Pubs in York”. (Not required, but suggested, reading to catch nuances).

The Baxley Books

Rating: K+

Like The Chelsie Chapters, but Baxley! ;-) One-offs based on prompts from here and Tumblr, for this lovely ‘ship. Have a prompt? Feel free to message me or leave in comments. Thanks all!

A Yorkshire Summer

Rating: T

It’s the summer of 1927 in Yorkshire! Expect loads of love, sweetness, multiple pairings, and lots of drama! EDITED AND UPDATED AGAIN: This started as a Chelsie/Baxley fic and has greatly expanded. And while there’s lots of happy scenes, there’s some angst. Expect lots of Richobel and LOTS of Thomas/OC, with lots of other downstairs folks mixed in and a happy ending for everyone!

Sunny Weather by CapKJaneway93

Rating: K

Rewatched Downton Abbey and was incredibly frustrated that Baxter and Molesley never got an ending. So here’s mine! Inspired by the super hot weather England is getting at the moment. In progress, rating will change!

Leafy Bowers by dreaming.in.sepia

Rating: T

Phyllis Baxter and Joseph Molesley take a walk one autumn afternoon, and he decides to tell her a story. Set post series 6 (fulfilling my Baxley dreams).

Of all the creatures by AgentBeazley @instantespanoramicos

Rating: T

He thought he had her under his control, but then, her hope was restored at the least expected of places.

A welcome difference

Rating: M

He was her friend and she never thought he would be something else. Until that afternoon he came to help with her garden.

I Will Be Waiting by adamwhatareyouevendoing @skatingthinandice

Rating: M

“You once told me that my strength had made you strong, but the truth is you have made me strong. I couldn’t have done any of this without your support.” Missing and extra scenes for 6x07, because they (and we!) deserve it.

Dreams of Tomorrow 

Rating: T

“She waits until everyone else has gone up to bed before she approaches him by the fire, needing to talk to him in peace.” Baxter shares the events of the day with Molesley. Follows on from 6x08, with spoilers from the episode.

Innocent Until Proven Guilty

Rating: K+

Modern Baxley AU where the pair are detectives investigating Mr Bates’s innocence.

For Your Eyes Only by Lavender and Hay @susangatelys

Rating: M

Modern Baxley Spy!AU. Follows their relationship as Joe returns from an extended stay in Russian custody. Will feature various characters. It’s rated T but it’s definitely going to go M at some point.

What Makes a House a Home by ddagent @ddagent

Rating: G

Molesley is struggling to adapt to life outside the big house. Regular visits from Miss Baxter help.

The Devil

Rating: T

Molesley’s thoughts on Coyle, and Baxter, before the trial begins. Set during 6.05.

to sink into the safety of your good graces (I beg of you, let me fall) by MatildaSwan @bonnissance

Rating: M

She always did want to be good.
