Gosford Park

Sometimes On The Rarest Nights by Clionaeilis

Clionaeilis constructs an entire era through Ivor Novello's letters to Mabel Nesbitt in this clever epistolary story, with its seamless blend of fact & fiction. The glimpses of other characters' futures are a bonus

'"Ivor was right about this being the wrong place to play master and servant -- it's not a game to these people, Henry."'
