    Summary

    A modern AU wherein Darcy has recently been elected to the House of Commons, Elizabeth is in the civil service, and unsusprisingly, there is conflict.
    Slight whiffs of both 'The Thick Of It' and 'Yes Minister'; and an eventual 'Darcy exiting the lake in a wet white shirt' scene, because let's be honest, that's all anyone is in this for.

    Additional story and relationship tags as the story progresses. Rating due to a base level of swearing which could only be described as 'Australian'. Also because there might be some lemons later on.

    Not on hiatus, I'm just really bad at updating.

    Summary

    Elijah is done with people judging him—for his day job as a janitor, for his family’s wildness, and for the historical fiction he works so hard to write. No one who can't understand him is going to get past his defenses, especially not the newly-arrived bestselling author who has the unfortunate combination of beauty, a razor-sharp mind, and a selfish disdain for the feelings of others.

    Darcy is done with explaining herself—why she finds socializing so hard, why she has so little patience and says things she later regrets. Better to be thought of as proud and conceited than tell anyone about her mental health problems, even if it makes for a lonelier life than would be ideal. Except now she’s insulted the one person in Meryton whom she actually wants to like her.

    (A modern genderbent Pride and Prejudice.)

    Summary

    For a long time afterward she locked herself away, too frightened to trust herself or her judgment. She wasted away, filled with self-doubt and being miserable, but then she went to Netherfield. Then she met Elizabeth, who was deep in her grief, and the rest of the Bennets and she realized how blessed she was. Mary Bennet, a woman Georgiana had never met, had died at the age of nineteen. She had never experienced love or even courtship. Her life had been cruelly ended much too soon and Georgiana felt like a fool once more.

    She had been given a second chance by her brother and she had spent months upon months wasting it.

    Summary

    After accidentally running afoul of a witch in Antigua, Tom finds himself afflicted with a terrible curse, the first step toward breaking which is to find himself a wife; the last person he has in mind as a potential bride is his indigent, creepmouse cousin, Fanny Price, but when he realises his family is trying to pressure her into marrying Henry Crawford (and she apparently doesn't want to), he sees an opportunity for a mutually beneficial arrangement.

    If she marries him instead, and breaks his curse, he'll protect her from unwanted advances elsewhere and provide for her financially for the rest of her life.

    Fanny accepts his offer, despite several vehement objections, truly that desperate to be safe from Mr. Crawford and to help her afflicted cousin.

    There is one rule by which Fanny must abide, but Tom imagines he's in safe enough hands with her.

    After all, Fanny, trustworthy and constant, never breaks anybody's rules. (But what if, one night, she does?)

    Summary

    "In the character of Mary Bennet there existed a profound irony which was as follows: the only quality that saved her from being wholly ordinary was the extraordinary degree of ordinariness which she possessed." A Mary Bennet romance.

    Summary

    When Lizzy was deemed old enough to be removed from the Nursery into her own room, her younger sisters repined the loss of the stories she told.
    Stories where Lydia danced a magical ward, and the pretty stones Kitty collected were jewels that contained hidden powers. Stories where Mary always knew the right words (spells) to say, and Jane's kindness could transform all but the most evil of foes into an ally...

    Once, the games they played were not so imaginary...

    Summary

    Elizabeth Bennet finds herself required to marry Mr. Collins, or else her family faces ruin. Upon receiving the onus to marry by Lady Catherine, Mr. Collins was reminded of a contract that his grandfather had given him before he passed. It promises the hand of one of Mr. Bennet’s granddaughters (should they be born) to one of Mr. Collins grandsons (should he be born), signed by our Mr. Bennet’s father. Mr. Collins has chosen our Lizzy as his bride. After being informed of the contract’s existence, Lizzy goes for a walk to Oakham Mount, and on her way, she runs into Mr. Darcy. Darcy, having successfully thwarted Wickham’s ill designs, is not so severe and unhappy. Georgiana, having been spared needing rescue, has not retreated into a shell, and as a result is more lively and communicative with her brother, especially about his happiness. We meet after the Netherfield debacle where Jane was abed, sick. Readers will remember Mr. Darcy penning a letter to his sister, but for the purposes of this story, he receives a letter back that causes some self-reflection, and causes him to think of his own happiness, which brings him back to a pair of fine eyes.

    Summary

    Mary stood on the step and watched the carriage disappear from view. She pressed a hand to her heart, her insides turning violently. Mr Powell had made a journey to see his father six months ago, it had not been long, just a week, he didn’t want to be separated from Mrs Powell with her lying in starting so soon. Mary had stayed close to Sarah while he was gone. She has come to think of her as a dear friend and promised Mr Powell that she would not leave her side. Thankfully his business with his father- business he didn’t elaborate on and she didn’t ask about- was done swiftly and he made it back in time for the birth of his son, Matthew William Powell.

    Summary

    In her mind- her silly, foolish, childish mind-, she thought leaving everything to start anew would be easy. She would just pick a place and claim a new existence, far from the Bennet name and the comfort of Meryton. She had always believed herself to be of a logical mentality. She wasn’t prone to fits of fancy nor did she long for things that were out of her reach. She only wanted to be seen and heard and not mocked at every juncture along the way.

     

     

    But… being alone was lonely. More lonely than she realized. The quiet was too quiet after a lifetime of loud voices and boisterous laughter. No one knew her and she knew no one. Mary could be anyone- yet she hadn’t any clue where to begin.

    Summary

    She was nothing to her family. A girl with a silly mind and no value. Her father felt no remorse for treating her cruelly. Her mother stayed silent as he did. Her eldest sisters were too lost in their own embarrassment at her foolery to seek her out. Her youngest sisters were too entranced by the gentlemen to comfort her. No Bennet reached for her. No friend followed her as she rushed away from the crowd.

     

    Only laughter- muffled by gloved hands- and sharp comments reached her ears.

    Summary

    (ON HIATUS)
    Years passed, and all of her sisters had happily married and settled.

    All except for plain and tedious Mary Bennet, of course.

    Mary liked exactness, was extremely religious and hard to please. Her mother, Mrs. Bennet, had not given up yet, however. Mary must accompany her older sister, Elizabeth, to the many extravagant events and excursions she and her husband host in hopes of snatching a rich and quality husband. It was either that or off to the nunnery she went.

    Mary had no hopes for such an unrealistic thing to happen to her. Especially when she had all the luck of suddenly catching the eye of the most despicable and impertinent man she had ever met.
