    Summary

    A modern re-telling of our favourite Austen novel.

    Elizabeth doesn't take kindly to being merely 'tolerable', Caroline doesn't take kindly to having someone move into her turf, and Darcy doesn't take kindly to losing control of his life.

    Or, the one where Jane is a ballerina, Wickham is a reporter, and Elizabeth and Darcy go swimming (eventually).

    Summary

    To her chagrin, Darcy wastes no time to come back with: “You think I’m hot?”

    The car feels suddenly claustrophobic. “You’re infuriating, is what I think.”

    “For the record,” he adds with an edge she can’t quite decipher, “I think you’re very attractive as well.”

     

    The first time you have sex with a man you're supposed to hate, you could probably call it an accident. After the second, you might still argue that it's not something you plan to make a habit of. But Lizzie's running out of excuses, at this point.

    And sure. Maybe she's okay with that. She's not great at relationships anyway, and this means nothing, right?

    Summary

    Her petticoat six inches deep in mud, and the gown which had been let down to hide it not doing its office. Yet Mr. Darcy could only note the frowsy country chit's 'brightened eyes'. What's a girl got to do to focus Mr. Darcy's attention where it really belongs?
