When you write these two, they are so unexpectedly good together. What a perfectly lovely fic.

I admit that I'm in the camp of 'not liking Mr. Collins' and while I dislike stories that portray him as a thoroughly reprehensible man (he is not, just bloody annoying) I never saw the potential between him and Charlotte. As a bit of a romantic myself I could never understand Charlotte's decision and thus I assumed she was in for a trying marriage. I'm glad to see that is not always the case. This was so sweet and lovely and I am a sucker for 'come to love' type stories and this was just a slice of perfection. I may even like Mr. Collins somewhat more now, as long as this is their future.

Ah! This was so excellent! I've always wondered if Charlotte would manage to get along with Mr. Collins, and how... The part about his nightmare was the sweetest to me. Was it a memory from his past? It was just so sweet that dear Mr. Collins awoke to someone really taking time to care for him. :3 Ah, this was so lovely!

It's rare that I come away liking Lydia, Mr. Collins or Mrs. Bennett. I find them all to be usually selfish or foolish characters.
I came away loving how Laura wrote Mr. Collins, in both "For Once In His Life" and in "My Dear". He was sympathetic. Charlotte turned out to be exactly the sort of loving and patient wife, needed to draw Mr. Collins out.

Despite feeling that I have experienced Pride and Prejudice in every possible medium, I have never found this viewpoint. I am rather intrigued by the idea that Charlotte would come to love him, that there are good parts she hadn't discovered. It seems almost like you have abandoned this, but I enjoyed reading it all the same. Refreshing perspective on such an old classic.

I thought these were beautiful :) Finally, someone is being nice to Mr. Collins! Might there be any more like these in the running? x

Woo hoo! I always kinda loved Mr. Collins; I wish Austen had developed him more as a human being, rather than a charicature. Lovely, lovely job; I rather like the Charlotte/Collins pairing now.

Oh, it's nice to have poor Mr. Collins portrayed in a favorable light for once.
| FullMentalPanic chapter 3 . 9/6/2012
I do feel like the point of the union between Mr. Collins and Charlotte in the book was to communicate this quiet horror over not loving and trying to avoid the person you were committed to for as long as you both shall live. That said, it's interesting and kind of heartwarming to see it from a different perspective where their relationship works. You build it very realistically and quite gently create sympathy and regard for Mr. Collins who doesn't really have friends and suffered abuse in his youth. It's seems very natural for Charlotte to eventually desire his company and see admirable qualities in him. For more than one reason, if the Bible were a movie it could easily meet an R rating.

I love this! How nice to think that the Collins eventually did come to love one another.
| Kedi chapter 3 . 2/6/2012
Just wanted you to know that I'll consider this head canon from now on. :P So endearing! And it makes me pathetically happy to know that Charlotte and Mr. Collins actually got a proper happy ending too. (Yes, "know". Head canon, remember?) Good work!
| MIS-MATCHED SOCKS chapter 3 . 11/7/2011
You made me really curious about this couple. I never thought about them. I like that maybe everyone can have a happy ending.

Thank you so much for this story. I have always hoped Charlotte and Mr. Collins would be happy, and you imagine it in such a lovely, quiet way. Well done.
