As an avid reader of Mary Bennet stories...
TBH this is a refreshing take on Mary! This Mary is sure of herself and is reluctant to part from her comforts and the ways she has grown accustomed to. While she is sure of herself, haughty, conceited, basking in her perceived moral and intellectual superiority, and doesn't unravel from her insecurities (I love reading these fics as well, but a novel take is still worthy to be mentioned), we get to see Mary open herself up in a different way; not becoming an entirely new person, but somewhat less severe and more open to new ideas-challenging the kernel of her character but, at the same time, keeping its integrity in expanding it.
And another thing, it is this line that struck me.
"Yet Mary is not a proper heroine, and this is not that type of story, Instead of realizing that she was deeply in love with her hero, Mary lay quiet in the darkness, wondering why she was not."
How interesting indeed to explore Mary's different dispositions to love and marriage. It shows how her situation is not entirely self-inflicted, but rather, some part of it is inherent and natural to her, which makes us more sympathetic to how Mrs Bennet constantly forces her in a corner while Kitty completely misconstrues her reactions to fit her understanding to the standard comings-and-goings of love. It's refreshing, and I really love it so much!

It's adorable how Kitty and Mary can't stand each other, but you do know that they have some deep fondness and affection for one another. I love their bickering so much ahhahaa

Wow, your Mary is full of depth. I love the direction you took her 1-D character and made it your own. Her relationship with Robert is ideal for me. :)
