Did you join the great fallen back in 1915

I haven't bothered with Thursday recommendations for a while, but this series utterly devoured my brain during the months where it was updated twice-weekly, so I just have to share it now that it's done.

Do you liked Downton Abbey? How about well-researched historical fiction? How about gay romance set against the backdrop of World War I? How do you feel about gross sobbing? I know I did it more than a few times reading it.

I give you the Halo Effect series by [Unknown LJ tag] 

Part 1. Halo Effect - When Thomas rescues Lady Mary from the nefarious attentions of Turkish houseguest Kemal Pamuk, his employers and coworkers begin to see him differently...and Things Get Better. A Season One AU diverging from canon in Episode 3, The One Where The Turkish Gentleman Dies in Mary's Bed.

Part 2 - Soldier's Heart - Following the events of "Halo Effect," Thomas Barrow goes to war. A season two AU.

I hear the author plans a season three in the long term, but is currently working on a one-shot set in WWII where Thomas and his boyfriend take in an evacuee from the blitz.
