    Summary

    'Well,' said Edward, uncomfortable, but knowing he could not avoid making the invitation now, 'I would consider it an honour if Lady Darcy would accept my hand for this dance.' She would surely reject him now, and he could not say he was entirely unhappy about it; he had no desire to dance with her.

    She surprised him -- she dropped in a small curtsey, and said, 'Thank you, sir, it would be a pleasure.'

    Summary

    There are people who believe that romantic connections are the province of fate and destiny, the result of an alignment of constellations and conditions that bring two people together. Others tend to discuss falling in love as the product of rational decisions that acknowledge attraction and compatibility. Some people, however, seem to think these two seemingly-opposite perspectives are really just two sides of the same coin. Sometimes, after all, destiny just requires that two people make a single choice.

    A modern/AU Pride & Prejudice.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    "I do apologise, Mrs. Darcy," he said, as the carriage pulled out to follow the now-Bingleys. "You know I must be most careful of observing decorum in front of such an audience, when what I truly wanted to do was this – "

    He leaned over and cupped her chin and kissed her deeply, and at that moment everything became perfect. She was thrilled by the sensation; she felt she understood him even better, now, that there would be a public Mr. Darcy, and a private Mr. Darcy, and as much as she had finally come to understand the former, the latter she would now discover.

    "Did I truly look that disappointed?" she asked, when she had regained her breath.

    "I believe it was more a case of felt, rather than looked."

    This is basically everything I want in a Pride & Prejudice continuation. Families in a society!

    Bookmarker's Notes

    The ultimate sequel(s) that Jane Austen herself may have written. Meticulously researched and wonderfully characterized; even the prose perfectly fits the time-period it covers. In short, this is now officially the canon of my heart.

    Summary

    It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a partner.
    Less universally acknowledged is that a single man in possession of very little in the way of fortune may be in want of a partner as well, but John Watson had little time or energy to devote to his own wants or needs...
    Enter one Mr Holmes...

     

    Please note that I gleefully take great liberties with the laws governing same sex relationships and how they are seen in the Regency Era. As in, it is not an issue at all in this story. At all.

    Summary

    A Pride&Prejudice AU with Stannis as Darcy and Davos as Elizabeth... I don't know how this started but what began as a funny idea in my head may have accidentally turned into an epic sweeping romance. Oops.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    I'm often dubious about the ability of Jane Austen's plots, which are so bound up in the gender politics of the patriarchy, to work with slash pairings. But on the other hand, the possibilities in a 19th-c. AU of ASOIaF were too intriguing to miss.

    Besides the fact that the class stratification and war of the period make it more suitable for the themes of canon, it's also a period with a lot of smuggling, and a time in which the barriers of class were, to an extent, extraordinarily superable by a) new money and b) naval service in war.

    The story doesn't, in fact, exploit Davos's canon naval service the way I wanted it to (think of the navy in Persuasion), and it lacks historical accuracy in the details - manners, servants, what period dress looked like, that kind of thing. (Also realism in the limits to how much horseback riding a novice rider can do, and how close together, without significant pain.)

    On the other hand, for one thing, it's really really good and I couldn't put it down; but for another the feel doesn't falter, and I think if it were set in any of the colonies at that time, instead of England, the class issues and problems with how servants work wouldn't have been an issue. It is truer to ASOIaF than to 19th-century England, which I think is legitimate, and the characterization is stellar and the plot genuinely interesting.

    While Davos's devotion to Stannis is indubitable, it's impossible to get anything but horrible angst in canon, and circumstances also make it hard to like Stannis, however much you can understand or sympathize with him. Modern AUs make a happy ending accessible but they remove so many of the pressures on Stannis that it's hard to relate the story to canon. The brilliance of this AU is that it's just different and just similar enough - the landed nobility and the notions of honor and familial duty are still present, so the situation is just similar enough for Stannis to make his actions and his character completely, vividly recognizable, but also different enough for the romance to be plausible, and the temptation of a happy ending believable.

    And the execution is excellent.
