    Summary

    "It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a partner."
    The wit of Elizabeth clashes with Mr Darcy's prideful demeanour in the 21st century. Their love story is a fight against today's society, and their position in the social hierarchy. Jane and Mr Bingley's own love story is just as complicated. But Mrs Bennet is determined for her eldest daughters to find love, even in a time where a woman can be recognised without a man.

    Summary

    When Mr Bennet suffers an accident, Lizzy takes over running their farm, taking time off from uni. Her life is rather boring until Mr Bingley buys Netherfield to turn into a conference centre and brings his friend as well as his scheming sister along. Quickly chaos ensues. BIG Time! - Modern P&P!
    Rated 'Mature' for profanity and adult humour as well as situations, not for smut.

    Summary

    Second son of a house full of women, James Elizabeth Bennet is as devoted to the women in his life as their mother is to getting them married. Being the only male sibling gives him the entitlement of starting mischief as well as ending it, until the local estate for rent is finally claimed by a wealthy Charles Bingley alongside his sisters and a guest by the name of Fitzwilliam Darcy.

    As the middle and wealthy classes combine, old agonies resurface within both parties, alongside current and forbidden needs. For one such as Jamie, though, as marriage becomes a very real aspect in his sisters' futures, loneliness becomes a more present element of his.

    Summary

    Elizabeth Bennet and Fitzwilliam Darcy meet years before the events of Pride and Prejudice. With a few additional changes to the circumstances, how does their love story play out?
    Note that relative ages are toyed with in this adaptation although not too severely, I hope!

    Summary

    Once, everyone knew that it was best to keep a bit of cold iron ready, and that one should never, ever, insult the Fair Folk.

    Now, Darcy's family is one of the few left in England with enough Sight to see things as they really are.

    Such as the fact that Miss Elizabeth Bennet is not at all human.

    Summary

    (was "Stubborn Egos and Wrong Impressions")

    Elizabeth Bennet's life revolved around saving for grad schools, trying to make sure her two youngest sisters actually stayed in school period, and all but running a coffee shop in her small town of Meryton.

    The last thing she needed was a wealthy out-of-towner to decide that a local long-abandoned manor house would make the perfect vacation home, and oh, wouldn't it be great to throw a charity event after the house was all fixed up.

    What she needed even less, was for her mother to decide that the introduction of rich young men in town was the perfect opportunity to play match-maker.

    Too bad she got both.

    (a modern adaptation of Jane Austen's 'Pride and Prejudice')

    Summary

    "Miss Elizabeth Bennet has refused me. I’d never imagined this outcome; it was entirely outside my realm of experience. Therefore, upon entering my temporary quarters, I summoned the single remaining faculty at my disposal that could possibly save the situation.
    "I summoned Jeeves."

    (In which Mr Fitzwilliam Darcy, with the help of his brilliantly capable manservant, attempts to clear his good name, tackle obstacles such as lovelorn mooncalves, perspicacious aunts, a kidnapping helmet thief, and an unexpected duckpond, and finally win the girl in the end.)

    Summary

    Darcy has to relive the same day over and over again until he gets it right. The story was originally inspired by Ground Hogs Day but as I progressed in the story, I found I needed to change the rules a bit to suit the story.

    Summary

    Lizzie Bennet did not cry easily. Yes, she had cried on camera for the entire world to see, but those were extenuating circumstances. It was a bit of a badge of honor, really, to consider herself more logical and practical than emotional.

    So, quietly sobbing in one of Catherine de Bourgh's many marble-ridden bathrooms was something of a personal failure.

    Luckily, Darcy is there to reassure her.

    Summary

    "'I trust you are well, Lady Catherine,' Mrs. Bennet began, her enthusiasm temporarily held in check.

    Lady Catherine gave her a curt nod. This was enough encouragement for Mrs. Bennet to continue."

    (Inevitably, a conversation between Lady Catherine de Bourgh and Mrs. Bennet devolves into a discussion of the Longbourn entail.)
