    Summary

    Mary Bennet agrees to spend the London season with the newly married Darcys. She discovers that she would still infinitely prefer a book. But hiding in the library at balls and parties is not the solution, as an odd young man keeps turning up there.

    “'Miss Bennet', she says. I did not know my Conscience would have such an ordinary name.”

    “I am not your conscience, sir,” Mary said, feeling made fun of and annoyed to be shaken out of her reverie for nonsense. “And whimsicality such as this, whilst charming in a child, is not so appealing in a grown man.”

    “Wait,” he said. “Do wait. I am so used to speaking in that silly way with silly young women that I quite forgot myself. Please stay and talk a little more.”

    (from the prompt "Mary's season in London. Her moralising is a trial to her sisters but in the end she outshines them all.")

    ETA Thank you to Prinzenhasserin for helping me bounce around some ideas, and to Burglebezzlement for the offer of betaing!

    Summary

    Exactly what it says on the tin. Mr. Bennet is actually a time-traveler from the 1990s, who ends up in Regency England and profoundly hates it. Featuring: quite a lot of fake science, some real history of science, and rather a lot of jokes about Uranus.

    Summary

    It takes time. A lot of it. It's just sad that everyone else around them knows how this is going to end, can predict the play-by-play and make good money off the bets, but the two of them keep dancing around what's inevitable.

    Or, the five times someone else notices how gone Ginny and Mike are for each other, and the times they finally figure it out themselves.

    “Don’t you want your birthday present?” Bones asks. “You’re always badgering me about getting you something nice.”

    “Aw, Bones, you shouldn’t have.” Jim grins and knocks him in the shoulder. “Where is it?”

    “Back in my quarters,” Bones says without a trace of irony or embarrassment.

    Jim and Bones decide to spend the first few days of shore leave driving down the coast in an ancient Mustang. Jim's even made a playlist of old songs especially for the trip.
