Darcy
Hello
Liza Benítez
hi
Darcy
Hi
Karl gave me your contact information, I hope it’s okay?
Liza Benítez
sure.
Darcy
So… your name is Liza?
Liza Benítez
yeah. Elizabeth.
you mr robot?
Darcy
I am
Liza Benítez
great.
Darcy
So um
I just wanted to say that when I recced your fic on tumblr
Liza Benítez
that was a rec?
Darcy
I didn’t mean to start all of that.
Liza Benítez
I mean
it’s ok.
Darcy
I just thought the underage should be tagged. Considering the dubcon.
Liza Benítez
there was a warning in the notes
but yeah
tagged now.
Darcy
I saw.
Sorry about the wank, though
I didn’t expect that to happen.
Liza Benítez
it’s ok
I don’t mind some wank
you could say I get off on it.
also I got plenty of hits since the post, so
Darcy
There seems to be an inordinate amount of drama in this fandom
Considering it’s pretty small.
Liza Benítez
yep.
it’s pretty wanky
but to be fair everything got stirred up with the movie announcement
and then these BNFs flocking in from big scifi fandoms
Darcy
You mean us?
Liza Benítez
sure.
Darcy
Karl is the actual BNF, and his friends
I’m just a vidder
Liza Benítez
well, everyone likes Karl.
Darcy
Just the way he is, I guess.
He’s honestly a great guy.
Liza Benítez
He and Janet are doing this collab webcomic thing
Darcy
He mentioned
He’s really fired up about it.
Liza Benítez
yeah
everyone is pretty buzzed tbh
Darcy
She’s a great author.
I’m not really into fluff AUs but
hers are very well thought out.
Liza Benítez
yes, she’s great.
Darcy
There’s more good fic than I expected
considering it’s not a big fandom
Liza Benítez
don’t let Motherof5 hear you say it’s small
unless you want to unleash the dragon
Darcy
Right
Liza Benítez
so, mr robot vidder
you must be happy to get a movie, then?
Darcy
Not really.
I’m kind of a book purist.
I saw your post about the casting
I take it you’re not sold on the movie either?
Liza Benítez
well, fuck. A vidder who is a book purist.
Darcy
I own a bookshop.
Liza Benítez
Ah.
I guess that explains it.
Darcy
I do like the old tv show though.
Liza Benítez
Oh shit the tv show
how hipster of you!
one of the reasons I can’t wait for the movie is I just need everyone not to wear shoulder pads
and the frizzy hair
no.
Darcy
At least the casting makes sense.
Even the terrible aesthetics make sense.
I mean, it’s space steampunk written in the 80ies.
There have to be shoulderpads to go with the leather tailcoats.
Liza Benítez
you _are_ a purist
Darcy
:)
I’m from Portland, too.
Liza Benítez
?
Darcy
So maybe also a hipster.
Liza Benítez
ahh
I’m from Miami
Darcy
Never been there.
Liza Benítez
right well
I should probably go, long day tomorrow
Darcy
Right, yeah
Liza Benítez
bye
Darcy
See you soon

Darcy
Hi
How are you?
Liza Benítez
hey
lunch break
Darcy
Okay
Have you seen the trailer yet?
Sorry, are you busy?
Liza Benítez
yeah
I am just talking about it
with Redcoat
Darcy
Ah
Liza Benítez
he says you two know each other!
his rl name is Wickham?
you there?
Darcy
I didn’t know he was in fandom
Liza Benítez
well, yeah
we’ve been talking lately
you know.
:)
Darcy
Right.
Liza Benítez
lunch break over!
bye
Darcy
Bye. 

 


Friday, February 6, 2014 - 4:36 pm

Liza Benítez
hey Darcy
Darcy
Hi
Liza Benítez
so
I saw the pair-ups for the Rosings Big Bang?
you claimed me??
Darcy
Is that not okay?
I’ve been looking forward to working with you
Liza Benítez
but
why?
Darcy
Why not?
Liza Benítez
well. we have talked a total of
twice
unless you count being contrary on tumblr
so
Darcy
Yes
I’m not very good at this
Liza Benítez
at big bangs?
Darcy
Talking to people online
Talking to strangers in general, really
I mean, not at the bookshop but
You know, small talk, dates, that sort of thing
Liza Benítez
ah yes
I saw
Darcy
Oh
Is it that obvious?
Liza Benítez
lol
no
I mean I saw ColonelFTW teasing you about it
we’re mutuals on tumblr
Darcy
Ah!
He does that, yes.
Liza Benítez
he’s pretty funny.
Darcy
It’s better in person.
Once he made my sister snort her drink through her nose three times in two days
Liza Benítez
oh, you’ve met in person?
Darcy
We go way back
We were roommates at Brown
Liza Benítez
ah
speaking of meeting up
Darcy
Yes?
Liza Benítez
Janet was in London all of January
did you know?
Darcy
I heard, yes
Liza Benítez
well
she and Karl had talked about seeing each other
but she never heard from him after finals?
Darcy
Right
Liza Benítez
what’s up with that? he pretty much left the fandom
Darcy
It sounds pretty self-explanatory to me?
Liza Benítez
right.
Darcy
Sorry.
Liza Benítez
just wondering.
Darcy
He’s ok
Lost interest, is all.
So about the big bang
Liza Benítez
about that
Darcy
I was obviously hoping I could do a vid
Liza Benítez
ah
well, I had an offer for a podfic
Darcy
Oh
Liza Benítez
but apparently my would-be-partner deserted the thing
Darcy
I’ve never done a podfic
Liza Benítez
so fuck it
Darcy
but I could try?
Liza Benítez
nah
a vid would be nice
Darcy
Are you sure?
Liza Benítez
yep
besides, it’d be the first fanvid for a project of mine
Darcy
:D
Awesome
I was thinking something along the lines of
the one I did for Firefly last Christmas
Liza Benítez
never seen it.
Darcy
Oh, ok
It’s just an idea
If you watch it and don’t like it I can think of something else
but it got a lot of views back then
Liza Benítez
I think someone linked me at some point, yeah
so do you want me to send you the first draft
when it’s done, I mean
say, in a month?
Darcy
Sure!
I can beta if you want
Liza Benítez
really?
Lotte said she would
Darcy
Yes
If you want another set of eyes
I’d be happy to.
Liza Benítez
ah well
I’ll keep it in mind
thank you.
Darcy
I don’t do it often but
I enjoy it
Liza Benítez
well, it would suit you
you _are_ kinda like that
Darcy 
Fastidious?
Liza Benítez
I was going to say fussy, but fastidious is even better
Darcy
Ahahaha
Liza Benítez
I’m sure you’ll have fun picking the thing apart
as usual
Darcy
For sure :)
I like thinking about your fic
Liza Benítez
uh
I think you mean _criticizing_ my fic
Darcy
I have strong opinions
Liza Benítez
Nope, you are mean.
Darcy
Lies and slander!
Liza Benítez
I have proof
five reviews and one alleged rec
Darcy
I’m sure my dedication to giving you feedback is terribly offensive
Liza Benítez
well
one day I’ll figure out your motives
Darcy
Will you now?
Liza Benítez
yep
I’m pretty sure you have secret reasons to partner with me
nefarious secret reasons
Darcy
Maybe :)
Liza Benítez
okay, g2g
got to pick my sister up
I’ll send you the thing
and you have, like, carte blanche
do whatever
Darcy
You have a sister? Me too
Oh
Awesome! I’m really looking forward to it
Have a nice weekend!
:)

Darcy
Hello Elizabeth
Liza Benítez
oh god
of course you’re online on a Saturday night
Darcy
Where should I be?
Liza Benítez
doing fun things?
Darcy
Yes?
I was reading your fic
Liza Benítez
well then
I guess that counts as having fun
but you know what I mean
Darcy
Besides, you’re online too
You can’t really talk, here
Liza Benítez
well, I was checking my phone
but I’m in a club!
on a date!
I WIN
Darcy
Oh
Right
Sorry
We can talk tomorrow
Liza Benítez
nah
Darcy
Or whenever
Liza Benítez
don’t worry
this might be the worst date ever
I actually called Lotte to bail me out
but now she’s talking to the dude??
Darcy
Oh
Liza Benítez
yeah
I’m just sitting here pretending to be too busy for their conversation
Darcy
Sounds like I am the one having a good time, then
Liza Benítez
sadly
but at least I *tried*
so I still win
Darcy
Right
Liza Benítez
I’m desperate, entertain me
what was wrong with the fic? pray tell
Darcy
:)
It was good
I really liked it
Liza Benítez
oh no no
tell me whatever it is now so I can either fix it
or think up a witty retort for your unavoidable _fastidious_ comment on AO3
Darcy
I’ll go over it again and leave you a few comments, then
but not now, you probably can’t even open the file on your phone
Liza Benítez
I see I see
premeditation, ladies and gents
Darcy
ahaha
yes
I like to think about you
*your fic
Liza Benítez
seriously this dude
HE IS STILL TALKING
I think he’s in love with his boss???
NEVER let your mom set you up on a date
NEVER EVER
Darcy
Ahahahaha
your mom made you?
Liza Benítez
I can’t decide if it makes it more or less sad
Darcy
It’s not
It’s sweet
Liza Benítez
ooh
confess: does your mom also introduce you to nice cuban boys
or whatever your equivalent is?
Darcy
Oh, no
She’s dead
Liza Benítez
oh fuck
sorry D:
Darcy
No, it’s ok, I never said
It’s just George and I
Liza Benítez
I’m sorry, really
Darcy
It’s ok
We’re doing fine
Liza Benítez
ok
so, you have a brother?
Darcy
A younger sister.
You?
Liza Benítez
yeah
you know the blog shirtlessofficers?
consisting of lots of drama and the abs of the movie actors?
she runs it
in her defense, she’s 16
some drama is to be expected, I guess
and also that amazing abs would blind her to the awfulness of the movie cast
Darcy
My sister is Miss Robot
She’s 18
She used to help me with the YouTube channel, but she’s too busy for fandom now
Liza Benítez
oh, college?
Darcy
She’s hoping to get into Juilliard
so rehearsals, really
Liza Benítez
wow
Darcy
So do you only date nice Cuban guys?
Liza Benítez
what
was that racist?
I had three drinks and can’t tell if I should be offended
Darcy
No?
You said: “does your mom also introduce you to nice cuban boys”
Sorry if it was offensive anyhow
Liza Benítez
don’t worry
you’re still less awful than my date flirting with Lotte
Darcy
Are you still with them?
Liza Benítez
I can’t go and leave Lotte with him
I could never forgive myself
but she doesn’t seem in a hurry to leave
kkskaabdkADBk
Darcy
Hm
Do you want to see the fancast I’ve picked for the vid?
Liza Benítez
you’re not using the movie cast?
Darcy
You don’t like them, so no.
And you don’t like the aesthetic of the tv series, so that’s also out
Liza Benítez
oooh
Darcy
Ok, let me send you the list
Liza Benítez
you know
I really don’t get you
Darcy
I’m not that complicated
but you’re welcome to keep trying
Liza Benítez
you say that
but I suspect a nefarious hidden agenda
Darcy
Ahaha
Well
Liza Benítez
OH THANK GOD WE’RE LEAVING
BUT WHY IS SHE GIVING HIM HER NUMBER
THE WORLD IS CONFUSING TODAY
Darcy
Maybe the three drinks have something to do with that?
Liza Benítez
shut up.
Darcy
I’ll send you the comments on the fic tomorrow, ok?
Liza Benítez
yeah yeah
I’ll check your fancast
bye!
Darcy
Okay
Good night, Elizabeth
Drink plenty of water!

  


Saturday, April 11, 2015 - 1:03 am

Darcy
Hi
Liza Benítez
hi
are you done?
Darcy
Not yet
But nearly!
You?
Liza Benítez
last spellcheck
Darcy
Great!
Can you do the masterpost tomorrow?
I’m visiting family in Warm Springs
Liza Benítez
ok
Darcy
Are you ok?
Liza Benítez
shitty day
and headache
Darcy
Maybe you should leave the spellchecking for tomorrow, then?
Get some rest?
Liza Benítez
I want it done with, so no.
Darcy
Okay.
Oh, I don’t know if you know,
I’ll be down in Florida this summer
My cousin Anne is getting married in Disneyland
And I can’t get out of going
Liza Benítez
what
why would you not want to go to Disneyland
Darcy
I have issues with Disney
and also I don’t like crowds
Liza Benítez
very misanthropic of you
Darcy
Ahahah I guess
I like SOME people though
so I was thinking,
It’s actually a hassle and I hate to leave the shop for more days than strictly needed
But maybe I could visit Miami that weekend
Liza Benítez
aha
awesome
Darcy
And we could meet in person?
Liza Benítez
what?
Darcy
I just
I really want to see you
Liza Benítez
why?
Darcy
I’m told I’m more likable in person
and I want you to like me.
I realize we come from different backgrounds
and I see how a long-distance relationship might not be what you are looking for
We don’t even move in the same circles online
But I really like you and I want to know you better
and see how it works out face to face.
Does that sound good?
Liza Benítez
no
it sounds like you think I’d want to date you
which, considering I don’t like you much
is bullshit.
Darcy
oh.
Liza Benítez
_different backgrounds,_ really?
wow thank you so much for doing me the honour of liking me
despite me being latina and not having gone to an ivy league college
what the fuck
Darcy
What? That’s not what I meant
Liza Benítez
and besides
even if you hadn’t insulted me
do you seriously think I’d date you??
I know Redcoat lost his job because of you
and I know you convinced Karl to stop talking to Janet
Darcy
Not that Wickham thing again
Liza Benítez
oh fuck you
you think you can ruin someone’s life like that
and not only walk free but also
shut him up about it?
Darcy
In this case, yes?
Liza Benítez
and JANET
she is the sweetest person in the world
and you BROKE HER HEART
Darcy
Oh come on
She is a grown up
Literally.
She is 27 to Karl’s 19
Liza Benítez
SO WHAT
Darcy
So KARL was the one most likely to get hurt
She never seemed to care that much
Liza Benítez
WTF
Did you miss the part where she WENT TO LONDON
but be honest, it’s not about her _heart_ is it
You and Caroline think she is after his EU citizenship or some shit
because she is brown
Darcy
WTF
Liza Benítez
you have to be on CRACK to think JANET is some sort of Brazilian femme fatale
Darcy
ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME
Liza Benítez
I WISH
IN CASE IT WASN’T CLEAR
YOU’RE A CREEP
AND I DON’T WANT TO SEE YOU EVER
Darcy
yes
you’ve made it abundantly clear.
Liza Benítez
awesome.
bye.

Tuesday, April 28, 2015 - 7:47 pm

Liza Benítez
hey
are you online?
I just wanted to say that I saw the vid
and it was great. really great.
and I also read the link you sent.
I’m sorry about your sister.
Darcy
It’s ok.
Liza Benítez
oh
um
I was actually hoping you were offline
Darcy
I can pretend.
Don’t have much to say anyway.
Liza Benítez
yes well
that was basically it
also
your followers are freaking out about your not being on tumblr
so I hope I didn’t ruin it for you or anything
Darcy
No.
I stayed longer with my family at Warm Springs
and then was busy at the bookstore.
Liza Benítez
oh right! the spa
I hope you had a good time.
Darcy
Right. The spa.
Goodbye, Elizabeth.
Liza Benítez
okay
bye.

  


Wednesday, July 1, 2015 - 2:33 pm

Liza Benítez
sorry if this comes out of nowhere, but
are you the guy who just rang me up at a bookstore?
pemberley books?
green shirt, really long hair?
Darcy
Yes
Sorry?
Liza Benítez
OH MY GOD
Darcy
I thought it was you from your selfies but I didn’t know what to say
I didn’t want to be creepy or anything?
Liza Benítez
OH LORD NO
asvgcjjah
lklbdd
LLKDABKLDDL
Darcy
:/
Liza Benítez
you weren’t creepy
just inexplicably embarrassed
I thought maybe terminally shy
Darcy
Good
That’s pretty accurate, yes
Liza Benítez
but… yeah.
makes sense now.
okay, so
Darcy
How are you?
Liza Benítez
I wasn’t trying to be creepy or anything either?
I’m fine, horribly embarrassed but fine
Darcy
Nono.
It’s okay.
Your aunt said you’re here for GearCon?
Liza Benítez
YES
apparently she knew your dad when she was a girl
she used to live here
Darcy
Yes, she said
She’s nice
Great taste in books.
Liza Benítez
yes :)
it’s her fault I’m in fandom, actually
Darcy
:)
Liza Benítez
OH FUCK
Darcy
What?
Liza Benítez
I just remembered again
I ACCUSED YOU OF BEING RACIST OMG
I’M SORRY
Darcy
Ahaha
Don’t worry.
It’s pretty funny in retrospect.
Liza Benítez
omg no
I was 200% sure you were a rich white dude
I pictured your shop like, idk, Powell’s
Darcy
What
Why??
Liza Benítez
well. You went to BROWN.
and your sister is going to Juilliard?
and you own a business, and are friends with Caroline
Darcy
I hated Brown.
Or more like, 90% of the people I met there
And George did get accepted, but she has no scholarship, so
Liza Benítez
Oh, I’m sorry.
your employee said you’re a great brother
:)
btw
is she trying to set you up or something?
Darcy
Reynolds?
Liza Benítez
she and my aunt started reminiscing
and she kept talking you up
Darcy
Oh no
Liza Benítez
oh yes :D
such a responsible young man
so charming
best boss ever
and isn’t he handsome
Darcy
Ahahaha
Please
She gets like that.
She’s like family to us
Liza Benítez
I gathered
Darcy
I hope it didn’t make you uncomfortable
Liza Benítez
nooo
it was super entertaining
also I didn’t know it was you
it only clicked when I was a block away
oh shit
SHIIIT
Darcy
What now?
Liza Benítez
WARM SPRINGS
IS NOT A SPA
IS IT
Darcy
AHAHAHAH
Nope.
It’s a reservation.
Liza Benítez
DDD:
Darcy
It could have been, though?
The other side of my family is actually the kind that goes to spas
and gets married in Disneyland.
Liza Benítez
you’re too kind
and
I am a jackass.
Darcy
I don’t talk about race online, really,
besides the occasional SJ reblog.
So it’s not your fault.
Liza Benítez
Sorry anyway.
Darcy
So
How do you like Portland?
Liza Benítez
idk
pretty surprising so far?
we just got here this morning
Darcy
Oh of course
I’m terrible at talking to people, I told you
Liza Benítez
nah
you’re doing pretty well all things considered
oh, I haven’t said
your bookshop is awesome
Darcy
:D
Liza Benítez
really cozy, it has a lot of character
Darcy
Ahaha
I know what that means
It’s code for tiny and cramped
Liza Benítez
no, for real
I am a pro, I know what I am talking about!
Darcy
You have a business too?
Liza Benítez
sadly, no.
I am the manager of a bed bath & beyond
Darcy
I didn’t know
Liza Benítez
I don’t like it much, but
it pays the bills.
My dad used to have a fishing equipment shop
but he retired years ago
Darcy
Ohh
Do you like fishing?
Liza Benítez
I hate it.
Darcy
Ahahaha
Liza Benítez
:D
so does my sister
it was never going to be a legacy like Pemberley
it’s shower curtains and towels for me!
Darcy
Right. :)
So
Did your sister come too?
Liza Benítez
ahh yes.
she’s with a friend of hers, that’s why she wasn’t around
Darcy
Of course
Liza Benítez
Are you going to the con tomorrow?
Darcy
Yes, we’re actually hosting an event
You?
I mean
Of course you are.
Liza Benítez
Yes, no
I meant the showcase
in the evening
Darcy
Yes… George is taking me
Liza Benítez
oh
ahaha
why the reluctance?
is it the crowds?
Darcy
Yes
Also she insists on both of us looking the part
and Victorian-looking clothes are way too hot
Liza Benítez
ahaha
_are they_
Darcy
what
FOR JULY
Liza Benítez
Nonono, too late
You look way too dashing in your bowler hat
that’s why the crowds bother you
Darcy
NOT WHAT I MEANT
It’s a three-piece suit
I sweat a lot
Liza Benítez
oooh
I see what you mean
you end up wandering around in a sweaty shirt and a vest
it does sound hot
Darcy
Are you mocking me?
Liza Benítez
only a bit
in a friendly way
sorry.
Darcy
No, it’s ok
Liza Benítez
It does sound good, though
We can’t convince my uncle to dress up
Darcy
Will you all be there?
Liza Benítez
yep
I will, at least
Idk about my aunt&uncle
but I want to keep an eye on Lyds
I’ll see if I spot you :)
Darcy
Okay :)
George will want to meet you
Liza Benítez
oh
okay!
we can do that
Darcy
Okay
Liza Benítez
quick
we’re at Moonstruck
which milkshake do I get?
Darcy
Brown cow
Liza Benítez
ok
no
no rootbeer!
Darcy
ahaha
What did you get?
Liza Benítez
the one with peppermint
like a normal person :p
I'm appalled at your taste
Darcy
Is it good?
Liza Benítez
delicious
agh
I should go, my aunt&uncle are giving me looks
Darcy
!!!
Have fun!
Liza Benítez
we’re going to Powell’s next
but we won’t buy anything
Darcy
Okay?
Liza Benítez
;)
see you tomorrow!
Darcy
Okay :D

  


 Friday, July 3, 2015 - 9:45 am

Darcy
Good morning!
Are you around here?
I am doing a coffee run and I thought I could bring you all coffee
if you haven’t had breakfast yet
You probably have, it’s nearly ten
Liza Benítez
oh
Darcy
?
Was that weird?
Sorry
Forget I said anything
Liza Benítez
nonono
I’d love to
it’s just
I think we’re flying home today
Darcy
What?
Liza Benítez
yeah
sorry
Darcy
Are you alright?
Liza Benítez
not really
um so
turns out Lyds wasn’t with friends yesterday
she was with Redcoat
Darcy
What
Liza Benítez
apparently they have been talking online
and she thought they were ~in love
Darcy
shit
Liza Benítez
YES
EVERYTHING IS FUCKING SHITTY
she is fucking SIXTEEN
and he is A CREEP
Darcy
Is she ok?
Is she with you?
Liza Benítez
yes
well she’s bawling
because ~in love
Darcy
Oh
Liza Benítez
also he ran away with her money
she had been saving up to visit KittyCat in Germany
and travel around or something
but Redcoat said they’d run away together or some shit
Darcy
I’m sorry
Liza Benítez
I’m just SO ANGRY
Darcy
Yeah
I know
I have to go
Liza Benítez
oh okay
Darcy
Tell me if you stay
Liza Benítez

Darcy
How’s your sister?
Liza Benítez
oh, she’s fine
Darcy
Fine!
Yeah?
Liza Benítez
yes
my aunt tracked that asshole down and made him give back the money
but Lyds doesn’t want to press charges or anything
because of the ~in love
Darcy
Well
Everyone deals with stuff differently
Liza Benítez
she deals by being super annoying
you know, little sisters.
no wait you *don’t* know
your sister is actually adorbs
Darcy
ahaha
yes :D
Liza Benítez
btw!
I wanted to say
I had a great time in Portland
Darcy
It’s a great city!
Liza Benítez
yeah…
my aunt and uncle think you’re super rad
that’s a literal quote
Darcy
Oh
It’s mutual!
Maddie’s scanned some of her old fanzines for me
she’s awesome
Liza Benítez
yeah
I didn’t know you kept in touch
Darcy
Oh
A bit
Liza Benítez

Oh, okay

Darcy

Liza Benítez
YISSS
Darcy
Is your sister ok?
Liza Benítez
ahaha yes
she’s milking it
he really broke her heart I think
but there’s no reason not to use it to her advantage?
that’s how she thinks
she is answering asks about it on Tumblr
it’s all very dramatic
Darcy
Ahaha
Well, that’s good
Liza Benítez
so
Darcy
?
Liza Benítez
this anon vigilante
did you
obviously you gave them info
because I got to the piano teacher part
but do you know who wrote it?
Darcy
Yes
Liza Benítez
…?
are you sworn to secrecy?
:) okay, nevermind
just being nosy
so
the movie!
man, I know I’ve talked a lot of shit about the casting and the trailer and all
but suddenly I’m super excited
NEXT WEEK

Darcy
I know!
It will be terrible
But maybe not?
Liza Benítez
chances are small
Darcy
Yes
Let’s assume it WILL be awful
Liza Benítez
haha yes

A MOVIE
I got my tickets and everything
Darcy
Are you going with someone?
Liza Benítez
Lyds and Lotte
thankfully Boring Boyfriend doesn’t like scifi
Darcy
Awesome then!
I’m going with George
she leaves for NY the day after
Liza Benítez
omg, is she going to Juilliard in the end?
Darcy
No, she’s just going to a masterclass
This super pianist lady thinks she could get into Curtis next year
Curtis is free of charge but the acceptance rate is insanely low
I’m still saving up just in case
Liza Benítez

Darcy
Yes
sorry
Liza Benítez
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
OMG
why sorry? it was amazing
and kinda hot
Darcy
Oh
Liza Benítez
you told Lyds not to tell me
so I figured I should pretend not to know
but then I couldn’t thank you so
deal with it
Darcy
That’s fine
Liza Benítez
and obviously I’m not going to tell anyone
but you really deserve some recognition!!!
I bet Lydia hasn’t thanked you at all
Darcy
Well, I didn’t do it for Lydia
Liza Benítez
right, no, of course
he conned like three different fandoms, so
Darcy
No, I mean
I did it for you
Liza Benítez
oh
I’m still here
I’m just
you did it for me
but you didn’t want me to know?
Darcy
Look
Liza Benítez
babe
not to pressure you or anything
but I’ve been staring at “Darcy is typing” for two minutes
Darcy
I don’t want to make you uncomfortable
So tell me to shut up if you want
Liza Benítez
go on
Darcy
I just, I still like you a lot
more than back in April, really
Liza Benítez

Darcy
and probably you’re just being nice
but
Liza Benítez
oh mY GOD
I THINK I LOVE YOU
Darcy
sorry

Liza Benítez
SORRY
Darcy

Liza Benítez
YOU'RE JUST SO AWESOME I'M AN IDIOT
Darcy
I think we've proven I'm the idiot?

Liza Benítez
YES
Darcy

Liza Benítez
I SHOULD PROBABLY DROP THE ALL CAPS BUT
I WAS PRETTY SURE I HAD MISSED MY CHANCE WITH YOU
Darcy
ALL CAPS ARE FINE
VERY APPROPRIATE
Liza Benítez

I’M SCREAMING IN MY HEAD
Darcy

Liza Benítez
MY FACE HURTS FROM ALL THE :D
NLAJLAMPFDAONLDP
SKPYE SKYPE SKYPE

Darcy
Hey
Liza Benítez
HELLO HOT STUFF
Darcy
What
Liza Benítez
HEY DOLLFACE
Darcy
Ahaha
???
Liza Benítez
HOLA CIELITO LINDO
Darcy
Are you just going to say hi with increasingly ridiculous endearments?
Liza Benítez
no?
probably not?
I am just ridiculously happy
and it gets even more ridiculous when I get to talk to you
Darcy
Ahaha
Me too
Liza Benítez
so you get ridiculous endearments
Darcy
I can live with that
Liza Benítez
and you DO have a (very hot and manly) dollface
Darcy
What, no
Liza Benítez
What YES
besides
I COULD use normal endearments but
I use those all the time
Darcy
you do?
Liza Benítez
yes!
IRL I do
Darcy
I don’t remember that?
Liza Benítez
?
oh, in PORTLAND, you mean
when I was freaking out about how attractive and kind you were
and about how I’d already told you to fuck off
AND been a total bitch to you, you mean
I didn’t think calling you babe would be appropriate
or welcome
obviously
Darcy
It would have been both amazing and horribly confusing, I think
Liza Benítez
see, I can be tactful
so no ridiculous names either
I’ll come up with something just for you
Darcy
Ahaha okay
Liza Benítez
nothing too silly
Darcy
:D
Were you really freaking out?
In Portland?
Liza Benítez
oh my goooooood
YES
remember that long chat we had
after I asked if it was you
and I kept having revelations like
BY SUNDANCE HE DIDN’T MEAN THE FILM FESTIVAL
Darcy
Yes
Ahahahaha
I have actually been to both
Liza Benítez
of course you have <3
well
I have a confession
I was at a coffee shop a block away
for the first half of it or so
and I was alternatively trying to talk myself into bringing you apology coffee
and worrying you’d happen to go for coffee yourself and catch me there lurking
Darcy
Elizabethhhh
I’m grinning so hard a customer just asked what was up
Liza Benítez
what did you say?
no, wait, sorry, I didn’t know you were at Pemberley
Darcy
I told her my girlfriend is too adorable and I can’t handle it
That’s ok!
It’s not like we have a lot of customers
Liza Benítez
oh :D
I’m at work too!
supposedly doing paperwork though
no scared customers here
Darcy
She wasn’t scared!
Liza Benítez
yes she was
scared by your hotness
Darcy
Ahahaha
Oh my God
Liza Benítez
babe
I counted two awestruck customers while I was there
it’s probably your best marketing tool
Darcy
STOP IT
Liza Benítez
ok!
sorry
:(
Darcy
Nono
That was a happy plea
happy embarrassed
Liza Benítez
ooooh
are you blushing?
ARE YOU GIGGLING?
Darcy
I will neither confirm nor deny
Liza Benítez
I bet that’s why you like me
because I’m super annoying
and I was EVEN WORSE at first
Darcy
No!
You were clever! And witty!
And I like it when you tease me
Though it’s super embarrassing at work
Liza Benítez
I wasn’t clever
I was BLIND
I was sure you hated me
and that you were a rich white fuckboy
Darcy
About that
Looking back, I see how that might have happened
Liza Benítez
me too
you criticized my fic and I was so pissed
I basically decided you were a terrible person
and ignored all evidence to the contrary
and also I’m kinda defensive about things
I tend to assume people will be assholes
and basically laugh at them as a preemptive measure
so, you know
sorry
Darcy
No, it’s
It’s FINE
The thing is
I was so worried about impressing you, I didn’t even notice
I reread all our conversations and it’s glaringly obvious you didn’t even want to talk to me
but I kept thinking, no, why wouldn’t she like me?
I didn’t even ask if you wanted to big bang together
And I mentioned Brown, for instance
I didn’t even last a full year there
Liza Benítez
why??
Darcy
I was miserable
And then Dad died
and I went back to George and Pemberley
Liza Benítez
ohhh
baby, I’m sorry
Darcy
It’s ok now
It’s not like I don’t love George and Pemberley
Liza Benítez
:D
fuck
I like you so much
Darcy
:D
Liza Benítez
also, don’t feel bad about the big bang
I was supposed to partner with Wickham
BLIND I’m telling you
Darcy
Let’s just delete all the chats before Portland
Liza Benítez
hahahaha
Darcy
No, for real
I’d rather you didn’t read them again
And realize I was super creepy
And stop liking me
Liza Benítez
not gonna happen
I mostly focus on my own stupidity
but okay, I can do that, babe
Darcy
Thanks
babe
Liza Benítez
:D
ahaaha
you’ll strain something
besides, I like Elizabeth from you
oh, hey, so
remember how I have no days off til Christmas?
Darcy
Unfortunately
Liza Benítez
WELL NOT ANYMORE
thanks to my logistical prowess
Darcy
!!!!
Liza Benítez
and two dozen banana cupcakes
Darcy
When?
Liza Benítez
early next month!!
it’s just a long weekend but
that way I can see you around Christmas too
Darcy
YES :D
Liza Benítez
:D
AND because it’s now my lunch break
my boyfriend will call me to discuss the details so I can book my flight
Darcy
Your boyfriend?
Who’s that?
Liza Benítez
oh, this guy
thinks himself very clever
Darc
:D
Liza Benítez
if you object to boyfriend
I can call you loverboy
Darcy
No
Liza Benítez
call meeee
Darcy
Okay.
:)

  


Tuesday, January 12, 2016 - 6:16 pm

Liza Benítez
Hey loverboy
Darcy
Hey :D
I was about to call
Reynolds wants to know if you have marketing ideas for Valentines
and Charlotte wanted to know whether you forgot your dinner date
or you’re not talking to her
Liza Benítez
oh fuck I totally forgot!
lemme call her
and tell Reynolds of course
Darcy
Thank God.
Liza Benítez
:D
anyway.
Lotte.
SHE IS MARRYING HIM
Darcy
Shit
Liza Benítez
YES
so I told her that’s settling and she shouldn’t do that
Darcy
Right
Liza Benítez
and she got mad
and told me I was being hypocritical
and she is so right
Darcy
what?
Liza Benítez
yes!
oh
not with you, babe
you are the best
Darcy
I nearly dropped the phone
Liza Benítez
you’re at Pemb, right?
Darcy
Yeah
Liza Benítez
okay, stay there
Darcy
What?
Liza Benítez
what Lotte meant is
why the fuck I’m still working at BBB in Miami
if I hate it
Darcy
Well, you _have_ asked for a transfer
Liza Benítez
I don’t think I’ll hate the store in Portland any less
Darcy
oh
Liza Benítez
so, yeah, huge row
and she is right
so this morning I quit my job
Darcy
!!!!
Liza Benítez
yep
Darcy
That’s... sudden!
But probably great
What will you do now?
Liza Benítez
well, so far I’ve flown to Portland
babe, you with me?
Darcy
please tell me you’re moving in
Liza Benítez
I could get my own place
I don’t want to impose on George&you
Darcy
No
I mean
That’s alright
You can’t really impose, we love you
But if you want your own place that’s also okay
BECAUSE I WILL SEE YOU EVERY DAY NOW
If you want
Liza Benítez
:D :D :D
YOU DEFINITELY WILL
but yeah, I figure
if George is okay with it
it would be financially responsible
Darcy
Definitely
Liza Benítez
also you do love my bedhead
Darcy
That too
I just told George
Liza Benítez
oh?
Darcy
She says you’re in charge of grocery shopping, we suck at it
Liza Benítez
:D :D :D
Darcy
You’re also in charge of doing her hair before concerts and dates
Liza Benítez
I can do that
Darcy
She’s really happy
I’M HAPPIER
Reynolds may be fangirling
I love you
Liza Benítez
shush
don’t make me cry in the taxi
Darcy
Okay, scratch that
We’ll bear with you
It’ll be terrible
Liza Benítez
I love you too
Darcy
Reynolds says “took her long enough”
Liza Benítez
she can tell me in person!
Darcy
Oh, she won’t be here
She’s a smart woman
Liza Benítez
OHHH
then tell her to RUN
I’m two blocks away
one block
Darcy
She’s out :D
Liza Benítez
Perfect :D
