    Summary

    Basically I reread Pride and Prejudice and was struck by how much I loved Mary Bennet despite her scarce appearances in the story. I really wanted to bring her forth as a character in her own right and a person worth getting silly over. Her love interest, Red, is a mix of everything I love in a fictional man (gone for the heroine, grumpy and in passionate denial about it) and his voice kind of popped into my head and wouldn’t shut up until I wrote him into Mary’s story. Since it’s not a previously established couple, I used the flashback-y thing for the first chapter just to build up their angsty acquaintance better before settling on a more present narrative.

    Summary

    "I'll keep the police out of your hair, Miss Bennet. And you will rob someone for me."

    Elizabeth Bennet's life is nice. University student by day, head of the most notorious underground gang in town at night, planning bank heists and scams in her free time. Until she tries to rob the wrong man.

    Now she's caught up in a deal with the insufferable Mr. Darcy: She and her merry band of criminal sisters are forced to rob this man's greatest enemy, who happens to be their greatest competition in the underground business, or he hands them over to the police. Of course including outwitting the authorities, infiltrating high level business meetings and hiding it all from a well meaning best friend, who happens to be hopelessly in love with her sister.

    What could possibly go wrong?
