This is exactly how I imagine Darcy! More please!

The Darcy Pov is so very poignant and moving. Indeed ''a man who had felt less" might have just moved on and so easily have forgotten Elizabeth. I would have really liked some insightful thoughts on when he actually started falling in love with her though. Maybe some flashbacks of his Netherfield torment?

excellent - just a very lovely back story - I am wondering if the gossiping that Darcy indulged in would come back to bite him!

Love it! I love it when Darcy and Georgie confide I each other. Yes she is so much younger, but they are the only ones left. They need each other. Thanks for the new chapter and I eagerly await the next one! :)

Saw your post on tumblr and just had to read. I read a chapter here and there when I found time over the last day, so this will be a mega review for Chapters 1-5. I hope you don't mind.
Jane Austen is one of my favorites, but I have to admit that this is the first time I've ventured into Austen fanfic. I have to admit also that it's been two or three years since I last read P&P, so I confess being a little fuzzy on the details.
I love that you've filled in the blanks and delved deeper into what Darcy is thinking. I specifically like, over the course of the chapters, how logically and systematically he tries to approach his search for a wife only to slowly come to the realization that love is not at all logical or systematic. The other aspect that really moved me is his selfless concern for his sister. He worries more whether his new bride would be a good sister for Georgiana than whether she would be a good wife for him. And lastly, of course, the fact that no matter how hard he tries - and he really does try hard - he can't get Elizabeth out of his mind. The moment he finally confides in Georgiana, telling her about Elizabeth, is a tender moment between brother and sister.
I enjoy your writing immensely. Thank you for this.

Yay! You're back!
Love this story. I've read hundreds of P&P fics, lots of Darcy POVs, but this one is one of the best ones. You capture both Darcy's stream of consciousness, as well as the characterization of the other players, with an elegant lightness. Very well done.
I love that you brought Darcy to his epiphany through putting Georgiana in Elizabeth's place. Don't think I've ever see that approach. And I'm glad Darcy found a confidant. I'm sure he'll feel better soon. ;)
Thanks for this.
