|Reviews for Thirteen Days|
| Binka chapter 16 . 5/18
I absolutely adore this story! It's amazing! Wonderful! But this last part was heart breaking. I'm so glad things turned out well in the very end or I'd have cried all day, and probably tomorrow too. Seriously, I'm not kidding, I'm afraid I get far too attached to fictional characters for my own good.
This would make a great audio book, or dramatisation, ever thought of publishing? Oooo, or a movie!
I looked fo the book that inspired you to write this but couldn't find it.
Oh, and the W H Auden poem is brilliant! I've never heard that one before, but it makes so much sense and for some reason it really seems to fit with the Bennets.
You did really well bringing the characters forward into the twenty first century and adapting the original plot to fit with tdays standards. I'm glad to see that Charlotte didn't end up with Colins, in our time she doesn't have to marry to get anywhere in life, aren't all we ladies glad for that. The same goes for Richard, he doesn't have to marry a rich heiress, although it looks as though he's going to anyway, Caroline Bingley, Really?! I was a bit sad that Richard and Charlotte didn't stay together, but it would've been a little too tidy wouldn't it? Not as realistic.
As much as I would like to pretend the car accident didn't happen, because the more I think about it, the more I will dwell on it, was the girl who'd argued with her boyfriend and drunk drove dating George Wickam? I know it ddn't say, but it would show that despite the Darcy's putting thoughts of him behind them, he was still causing trouble for them, even if he wasn't aware of it.
I kind of missed Mr Bennet, but you still managed to give us a good grasp on his character despite his not being there in the flesh and the relationship between Lizzie and Uncle Ed made up for his absence somewhat.
Ann's character was hilarious! I think she is the person I feel sorry for most in Pride and Prejudice, if only she could gain some independence from Lady Catherine and take charge of her life. Well done for showing us who she could be if given the opportunity.
Sunday dinner with the Bennet ladies sounds excrutiatingly painful, I kind of wished I were there so I could stand up and give Mrs Bennet a mouth full, but Lizzie was probably right, her mother would've only gotten worse if she'd been confronted. Still, it was very in keeping with Austen's characters, Jane trying to smooth things over, Lizzie sitting there mortified, Lydia putting both noisy tactless feet in her mouth at once and not caring and the guest feeling more and more uncomfortable and angry as time went on.
Lady Catherine's counterpart ws spot on, least said the better bout that woman.
Oh, and Mrs Rennalds was brilliant! Despite her lack of air time her character practically jumps out at you, especially with that car.
Well, I'll leave it there I think, or I'll go on all day and bore you to tears, either that or beg you to write a sequel.
Thanks for sharing this story, I've thoroughly enjoyed it, if this huge review wasn't clue enough.

Like a delicate sugar kiss
The misunderstandings are as maddening, if not more so, than Austen's, bc I assumed our century people would be more direct. But you're right, humans ever willfully misinterpret

This was lovely. Will and Bell bit too far of their characters but Jane and Mes Bennet certainly made upto that!

Lovely, wonderful story. Thank you so much. And especially thank you for the wonderful epilogue. I had recently read "Face Down" on this site and the car wreck at the end left me distraught for days. That is not whY we read and love Pride and Prejudice fan fiction. You have helped me so much.

I am loving this book. Really loved the no knickers under the wedding dress. That was always one of my favourite bits from "My BFF".

Oh my goodness! I can't seem to stop smiling. My face hurts from constant squeals that have been coming out from my mouth! Oh how I wish that Mr. W can be punished properly in this modern era.
