I liked this story, and appreciate how difficult telling a story can be, not only for using only letters, but from only one source. There is however many subjects introduced, that are not concluded, leaving the reader short. I enjoyed the story anyway
Thanks for sharing

I've read this story at least 3x already, but this is the first time I've reviewed it, much to my shame. It's given me so much delight, both in its humor and in its romance, that I've been remiss in not communicating that enjoyment to its author. You, boogima, should be very proud of yourself for having captured so vividly our dear Mrs. Darcy's incomparable wit and vivacity. I suppose I should consider "Fix You" (another triumph!) as a companion piece of sorts since it is from dear Mr. Darcy's POV, but I would love to read a true companion piece to this work from his perspective as I am dying of curiosity regarding the unfortunate beginning to this most beautiful of relationships. Still, I consider it a real blessing to have discovered your work last year. I hope you have not abandoned writing P & P fanfiction, but I shall count myself fortunate that you decided to begin writing these stories at all. Thank you!

Oh Elizabeth! Loved that last letter! It was so sweet!

I loved this story. I usually avoid reading any stories made up of diary entries or letters, as they take a special kind of talent to write, but are usually written by those with the least skill. I am glad that I gave this one a go, as it is truly an amazing fic. You capture Lizzy amazingly well and give her a playful and good natured wit that shows both intelligence and writing skill, and would have done Austen proud. Even more amazingly you manage to capture all of Pride and Prejudice's other characters without any of them actually saying a word. I thoroughly enjoyed this story!

Oh, this was simply marvelous. I usually don't care for epistolary, but this works SO WELL, particularly as it is very fitting for the Regency period. I adore every single thing about this, and I love how delicate and rife with misunderstandings the whole thing is. You still manage to capture the liveliness and vivacity that is Elizabeth Bennet (Darcy) while dealing with the awful - she thinks - life she has found herself in, and then again with the Wickham situation. This, my dear, feels like it could have been written by Miss Austen herself.
I loved it, thank you so much for the wonderful read. I will be saving this in my Pride and Prejudice favourites list, of which stories there are only 6 right now - and two of them are yours!

Just read the whole story all the way through (thankful that I didn't have to wait for the updates while it was in progress), wanted to say-Well Done! Very enjoyable to read.

This is just a little note to tell you how much I enjoyed reading this. The voices and emotions were genuine and in character, the humor spot on, and I truly loved how you wove the narrative of P&P into the story. I was sorry to see this story end and yet I loved the way it wrapped up. Lizzy isn't Lizzy if she's not being snarky and awesome and I couldn't help laughing at the final letter. Bravo. Or brava, actually. I don't know a bit of Italian but I know that much at least :D

Oh that was gorgeous! I do love a well written, grammatically correct piece of fan fiction which does exactly what it should - help us seemlessly wander further into the original work without stomping all over it.
When I discovered it was a series of letters - I was resigned to skipping the bits that didn't interest me (IE anything that wasn't D and E's growing relationship) but I found that I drank up every word. How lovingly and respectfully you have researched and recreated Austen's world. How beautifully you have captured the essence of Elizabeth and most cleverly (as like the book) captured Darcy through Elizabeth eyes.
I'm directing a play of P&P October 2014 and I've been reading everything I can lay my hands on to gain as much insight as possible to the era and thoughts behind the characters words - this has helped immeasurably. Thanks for writing this delightful work!

I think this is a very lovely story, although it is somewhat old now. You did a very remarkable job, and I hope you continue writing.

Good for you for trying to give credit to Ms. Austen, where credit was due with your last footnote in Thaw. ( I think she may have greatly affected your language in this story; I know other authors have affected mine as well.) Excellent show, M'am. It was a very engaging story. Your use of letters to tell a story was decidedly effective. Thank you for helping me and others pass our time most pleasantly with your story. Lisa Cooper

Perfect! I can't imagine a better ending than the letter to Lettice.
I really enjoyed the notes at the end with information on various references. It made the story much richer.
Thanks for this.

Spring is coming! The way you change the tenor of the letters as Elizabeth's feelings shift is really quite well done. Looking forward to summer time, when the livin' is easy. ;)
Thanks for this.
