I am so glad you are doing this! Thank you!

I posted, Christmas Blessings this morning. Now that I have my story finished, I am going to enjoy reading all of the other stories.
Brilliant! I look forward to reading yours too ❤️

I woke up early yesterday and read more stories, and last night, I read more. I have now read all of our stories, and each one wonderful in its special way. Well done, Millers!

Just FYI, I believe there are now 531 North and South stories on AO3, with the tag North and South/UK TV. A good amount of those, especially over the last few years, belong to millers. I have written eight North and South stories over the last two years that are posted on A03 myself, and some of you have written more than that I expect. We are keeping Elizabeth Gaskell's iconic characters alive and hopefully, introducing them to new readers. :heart :heart :heart

So Pippa and I were talking the other day and I don't know when we will do another collection but what do you all think of the idea of doing something including letter writing? Like, as a poll: Some scenario in which John and Margaret fall in love through writing letters?

I know it's been done before, but many good things have *looks over at the 2948683 forced-marriage-stories* but it's FUN! And I have wanted to do one for ages! And I know other people love it too.

Just as a thought. Doesn't have to be right away (in fact, I hope it wouldn't be as I don't have time for it right now) but maybe sometime in spring?

so - a plea - does it have to be Margaret and Thornton????

I mean, I have written them a few times, so I might be able to do it, but I find them more constraining.

I would say no, they absolutely don't need to be John and Margaret. I always like to keep these polls as open as possible. Get creative. 😊😊

I thought of a great idea (well, I think it is great, YMMV) for a letter story - are we going to do a collab (in which case I can wait a bit) or should I just go ahead?

Yes, I have an idea, though I'm pretty sure it's been done before, but I guess it's another writer's interpretation

do we have a tentative time in Spring? Imbolc has been and gone, although it is still six weeks to the equinox. Is Easter ish a good or bad time for people (makes no difference to me)? or are we thinking later?

I was thinking maybe late April/May? There are no holidays like Christmas or Valentine's and it's not quite Summer yet so there won't be too many "seasonal" first at this time. But I'm open to whatever. It is very possible that I will have to add my story to the collection later on because I will probably be busy for all of spring with my classes.

Mine is almost finished so I will likely post sooner and therefore not in the collection

If you would like it to be part of the collection, we can open one and then you can already post in there. (?) Unless you don't want to, then that's fine too.

Generally all the collections are open for new stories all the time. People could technically even still add something to 2022's Christmas collection if they had a story that fit. Or any other for that matter.
