this is the first Austen fanfic I've ever read, and it was a blast!
I love how you managed to modernize the characters but at the same time maintained the tricky balance with keeping them essentially the same.
while I - like Darcy - vastly prefer the happy endings, I thought the original ending was much more powerful and moving.
Bravo! Well done!

awesome story! l love it, though the first ending is really sad...

i must ask you, why is it that the voices of the characters always fade away when finished speaking, instead of ending in a period? it aggravates me, to say the least, though your writing skills hold me captivated, and, if "Pride and Prejudice" was not an exsisting book, i'm quite sure your story would be published within days of the publisher's reading of it! yay for you!

Mate, I like a sad ending just as much as the next person, but damn do I prefer the alternative ending! P
Yay for happy endings. -scowl/eyetwitch- I do have to admit to being a little bit...disappointed, I think, to Darcy killing himself. Wow that sentence sounded surreal. O_o. Anyways! Great story;; I loved it. ]]

WOW, I liked the alternative ending better...I'm a sucker for a happy ending. Congrats! Loved it!

Now I have read alot of modern P&P's (there's too many to count) and I must admit, you are a very talented writer. And the fact that you are brave enough to kill off Darcy in the worst and most depressing way...that takes guts. Though I loved the second better cuz it ended happily and the lovers were able to be together, I thought the first ending was beautifully done...the only thing is that if Darcy were to die at all I wish he could have been murdered or died in some other tragic way that has nothing to do with him taking his own life...its too much like a coward's way out

holy crap... this is such a great ending but so depressing. i was crying my eyes out when darcy commited 's a depressing twist. but much kudos for you on doing it. i loved it. and i hope the alternate ending is just as good.

not to be all lovey dovey cliche but i like the alternate ending, just because i think it fits him more than the suicide. I think that his duty to his sister is something that would sustain him in the very least, and would have kept him alive, just so she didnt suffer like he did. i get why you did the suicide, but the alternate is much better. other than that (im sure you dont like me ripping into ur ending like that) i really loved it!especially the tango! that was just totally awesome! major kudo points for this story, its the first one that ever made me get teary eyes.

Oh my god ... I feel like crying.
This is absolutely beautiful

I have read some modern P&P and yours is one of the best I have read. I have enjoyed your writing and the story and both endings I like and think probable. About the first tragic ending, as the story progresses we see a depressed Darcy and he refuses to take medication for this illness so I believe he migth have some suicidal tendencies as the pressure grows and Lizzie's love and gratitude! can not save his life. However as I love happy endings as much as the next person the second ending is more satisfactory for my romantic side. And as I was reading your alternate ending I thought the first ending might be more convincing till the part Darcy says to Lizzie ‘You see, if you hadn’t come after me that night at the dinner and told me how you really felt, I don’t think I’d be here today.’ and I decided that both endings are very well written and beatiful in their own way.
Also I liked the alterations like Mr. Collins being a historian rather than Bennets's cousin and Darcy's aunt mean behaviour to his nephew the result of her greed for the theatre and her jealosy.
So congratulations I really really liked the story and took great pleasure in reading it.

I hope there aren't too many typos in this review, I have to admit that my hands are shaking rather badly. I also have to admit that this is the first piece of work on this site, which has been a favourite of mine since it opened, to reduce me to such a, well, pathetic state. My roomate must think I've lost my mind, as I am streaming tears and trembling like a leaf while staring at nothing more than a white, print covered screen, but I could not help but to be so moved by your work. The way you tapped into the raw emotions of the scene and the caracters is nothing short of overwhelming. Coupled with your grasp of language, you demand complete control of the reader's, of my, senses. You have the power of oberservation and understanding paired with the knowledge of how to control those observations, to see what others never thought to see and turn it into something magnificent. You have the makings of a great writer. Brava, brava.

You'll have to excuse me if I don't accept the first ending. The story itself is good...but...a world without Darcy is no world at all (in my opinion anyway).
| moneymakestheworldgoround chapter 21 . 1/28/2007
no offence, but i like this - the alternative ending - much more than the real ending.
call me a sap for romantic happy endings, but i personally don't really get the point of a story if it ends in misery.
