This story is very entertaining. I do hope, since you've finished it, you've learned the difference between "seize" and "cease" and "wane" and "wan." If not, look them up. Your future readers will appreciate it.

You've gotten rid of Wickham, Anne De Bourgh, and Caroline Bingly, so I'm looking forward to the changes in canon!

T'is OK? What the hell, this part of the story was before even the Regency; this would have been the 1790s or something! Jesus...watch out. And don't make up words. And check your gramnar. Seeing such careless mistakes upsets me in an otherwise well written story. And be careful of how many people you make fall in love, because it gives a sense that even the ladies who end up single could not look after themselves. I know it was the main focus for women, but in your story it's like you are trying to give everyone a happily ever after, but marriage is the onoy way to do it. It is a shame that I have so many gripes, because this story is really good. Although, I have to say, if their characters and circumstances were a little differemt, then it isn't really P&P, is it, because the whole point is that they overcome their character flaws and society's own prejudices to really see each other. It isn't P&P if you change their characters and circumstances, because that's what makes it the masterpiece of social commentary that it is. But, again, I have no clue why I'm pointing this out, because for all it's faults in the premise, it's actually excellently thought out. Although I now picture the Viscount as awesome and Jamaican with dreads because of his name, because I once knew a Jamaican guy called Reg. I assume

Greetings. I enjoyed your story quite a bit. My only real qualm was your incorrect use of titles and forms of address. For instance you called Sir William Lucas Sir Lucas, or Lord Ashbury Lord Andrew Ashbury, or Lady Ashbury Lady Adelaide. Each of these is incorrect. You often got the forms correct, but the times you got them wrong were confusing. As forms of address are a shorthand code to an individual’s place in the social hierarchy it is important that they be used correctly.
I recommend Debretts . com as an authoritative source for correct titles, or Wikipedia forms of address in the UK and courtesy titles in the UK as more in depth information sources. Another good source is www. chinet laura / html / titles05. html which references Titles and Forms of Address: A Guide to Their Correct Use. London: A. & C. Black Ltd., Third Edition, 1932. I would also be happy to help if you would like.

I realize your story is complete, but I hope that, since writing it, you have learned the difference between "siezed" and "ceased" and "custom" and "costume."

I think that this story is remarkably well written and I hope that you succeed in getting it published, the quality of your writing is certainly higher than that I have read in some books. Good luck.
