The story is meh but the author's notes are hilarious! Also I have nothing against Darcy Jane pairings. It's the puritan christian propaganda and that surrounds he characters that is unpalatable and not my cup of tea. Good Luck

Please, for the sake of the universe, do not write again in this fandom.

Thank for your bravery in writing this story. I enjoyed it immensely and I am sorry you had to endure so much hate and resitence to a new exploration of Austen's characters. Your essay after the outakes about your writing journey for this Fandom, was both enlightening and tragic. I love your writing in all of your genres. Please continue!

All your stories are found wanting, and especially an insult to P&P.
Elena chapter 19 . 4/5
So beautiful, so satisfying. I hope you write a more scenes of post-marriage life, it would be so interesting, though the final two chapters which offer the many scenes are fantastic too, I'm glad you didn't end the story at the wedding itself.

the former Miss Bingley is such a distasteful character, and this particular chapter and her glee at the misfortune of the Bennets really is something. It makes you wonder what is the role of such characters who live for status and then the smugness once they get it, is all of their life spent in that? Even the Prince Regent is more respectable than this. I loved this part of the story though especially Darcy firmly realising where his peace is and going back to Pemberley
Elena chapter 8 . 4/5
This is my 3rd re-read of this story. It is the best fanfiction I have read, in the sense of depth. It is the best story I have read in reflecting to me the depth of human character. I declare it better than many of the classics beloved today in our English literary canon. I love the original story, and I love the different directions other authors have taken this story, the different depth and shades they've added to beloved Elizabeth and Darcy. Yours is however, deeply special in exploring a parallel reality where our characters develop this depth in their exploration of human character and meaning. I was very struck by the lines 'Providence always brings good where evil is intended.' It paints the happenings of life in such a different perspective. The sequence of fated events, threaded to have our characters delve into understanding ruth, of as exactly as Jane says, the truth of true human nature as revealed during the darkest, toughest of circumstances. Hayward was brought into exactly at the moment of need, yet he would never have come had Jane sucuumbed to the pressure of society and family to marry the nefarious Mr Grayson. This reveals such a hypocrisy present in so much of society. She is so censured and scorned, looked at with so much disdain by her inferiors (Lady Lucas) for acting morally, for her most righteous refusal to be within the power of such a cruel man. They would rather her suffer in his hands, but they would then scorn her marrying for fortune and no other consideration. They would have taken malicious pleasure in her being in an abusive situation, which is the most evil of them all. They want for this sweet, gentle soul to be within a painful situation, and scorn her for refusing. They don't lighten her load, but add to it. Such a good story, has me analysing every sentence as you can see!

I am really enjoying the Depth you are giving Jane. She does fade to the background when Lizzy is around.

I am glad you have given Lizzy a good husband and she is off having adventures.

This is such an interesting story. Looking forward to where it goes.
Guest chapter 19 . 3/6
The rants of a privileged and equally deranged white woman who thinks the world is her oyster and she thinks she has the right to break the rules and rant. Like a proper Karen.

KARENs, the bane of women's existence is the world.

Clearly, you failed to read Pride and Prejudice. Thank you for spelling it out plainly.

The "Vermin of the state" of this writing never ceases to amaze me. Look I can quote stuff too!
Guest chapter 16 . 3/6
Even the Devil, Trump, and Hitler can quote the Bible. Thank you for proving your point. Next.
