"At the dawn of World War II, a house stands silhouetted against the countryside."

Thank you to EVERYONE who supports me!!! Read the 1st FULL EPISODE for free down below!

Before I get into the introduction, here's exactly what my project is: It's a high-quality unofficial Downton Abbey TV series. Once every two weeks, I post a new episode ranging from 49-90 pages in length. By becoming a patron, you're able to get rewards ranging from early episodes to behind-the-scenes content! Best of all, you get to be part of the idea-generating process! You can view the series description down below, in italics, but what you need to know is that this TV series takes place across three seasons, 9 episodes each, detailing how an upper-class society (and their servants) copes with the events of World War II.

UPDATE: Hey, friends! I just wanted to let you know that, now that freshman year is approaching, I need to start raising some funds for on-campus living. So, if you have an extra dollar to pledge to me, I would REALLY appreciate it! I also have many ways to reward you, as showcased on the right! A pledge of even $1 yields a juicy reward! I really need these funds, so I hope you'll consider!

Welcome, friends! I believe introductions should be brief, so I'll get right to it. I am a writer. I write high-quality fan-made screenplays in the world of Downton Abbey. I launched my first work (a Downton Abbey Movie screenplay) on Facebook, and fans loved it. That's why I'm expanding the series. If you're skeptical and/or confused, bear with me! I will explain everything, and I also have an FAQ to address your main concerns. Have you ever wondered any of the following: Did Sybbie ever become a nurse? Will Thomas ever find love? Will Marigold become a journalist? What happened to Miss O'Brien? Did Downton Abbey survive through World War II? Did Edith really have a happy ending? Did Bates ever wind up tangled in the law again? How/when did Violet die? Does Cora have another baby? Does Jimmy ever come back? If you are wondering those things and more, then you'll be delighted with this series! (PS, it's great for non-Downton fans too! You'll love it!) I'm headed into college soon, and I need to raise funds. Every single episode in this series will be FREE to everyone! But if you want to support me by pledging $1, $5, or even $25 or more, there are some sick rewards! You'll have an opportunity to suggest changes, see episodes early, get a glimpse into the creative process, view exclusive art, and more! I really want this Downton Abbey project to keep its best attribute: community. Paying just the $1 pledge allows you to have a chance at having your suggestion/idea/etc. implemented! You surely have questions, doubts, suspicions, concerns. Visit the FAQ before you get disheartened! I've put A LOT of thought into this project! That does it for the introduction. I now leave you with the project description:

"At the dawn of World War II, a house stands silhouetted against the countryside. Downton Abbey, a former convalescent home for officers in World War I, must reprise its role in order to help welcome the influx of children who are fleeing the cities. Servant and master must come together in order to pull through what will be the bloodiest war in British history."
