University AU that mixes plots from P&P, MP and S&S. Alternates narration with emails. From the POV of Caroline Bingley, a 1st Year International Business undergrad who shares a flat with Mary Crawford and Fanny Price and is in love with his brother's best friend. Some of the canon ships plus more.
Everyone gets a HAE, even if not everyone gets an OTP. A lot of drama though, with humour, slow burn, house parties, pub gigs, pop culture references, a hidden vegan agenda, and Henry Crawford being sexy.

(She had half expected him to say Malfoy). And that had been the best kiss of her life, probably.

He'd noticed sometimes his gaze dragging around his face, he’d noticed before how it lingered around his lips, and even lower, at his arms, and even lower. And this look was that now, but more intensely, or simply longer, or less contained. Frank was licking his lower lip, both hands on the bass, and was staring at Jamie as if he were something he really wanted. Jamie had the urge to look behind him, but no, Frank's dilated pupils were directed solely at him, whether he knew it or not. And he must have, mustn’t he? He must have known he was dying to shag Jamie, if not him, who else?
