    Summary

    (Modern AU.) It's hot. Elizabeth keeps going to the same café to write or to relax with a cold drink. At the nearest table, there's this guy. Reading. Day after day, same table, different books.

    Handsome. Not particularly pleasant. Strike that, EXTREMELY unpleasant. God. Elizabeth hates him already.

    Summary

    Being a history in several parts of the marriage of Mr James Rushworth and the once and future Maria Bertram, as witnessed by certain of their London neighbours,
    OR
    How Fitzwilliam Darcy’s wife made him dine more than once with the worst couple in the world in the winter of 1814-15.

    Four years after the end of Pride and Prejudice, Elizabeth and Fitzwilliam Darcy settle in town for winter to network, show off their newest baby, and generally enjoy the season with their friends and family in the optimistic aftermath of Napoleon’s exile to Elba. Their plans go awry, however, when the newly- and unhappily-married Rushworths (of Mansfield Park) move in next door to play out their domestic drama with the Crawford siblings against the backdrop of the Ton generally and the Darcys’ front doorstep in particular.
