Author has written 4 stories for Pride and Prejudice, and Elementary.

I like my banter witty, my endings happy, and my facts straight.

I don't know that I'm any good at witty banter, but you can be reasonably certain of the other two, unless otherwise noted.

I'm somewhere between engineer and counselor and artist and I don't yet know what to make of myself.

A few more concrete facts: I'm 28, I have a wonderful husband and two little girls, and I'm a messianic Jew. I like georgette heyer, Connie Willis, g k Chesterton, lord of the rings, discworld, Lizzie Bennet diaries (and most other incarnations of p&p), firefly, harry potter, castle...probably others, but that's what comes to mind.

I blog (rather sporadically) at http://swanfeet.wordpress.com/

The quote in my avatar is one that I saw online somewhere: “A good rule for rocket experimenters to follow is this: always assume that it will explode.” – Astronautics Magazine, 1937. The background I made myself (Inkscape) and the font is My Underwood from fontsquirrel.com

I've been pulling my twenties slang phrases from http://home.earthlink.net/dlarkins/slang-pg.htm - and when in doubt, google is your friend

Between the Words by a. loquita reviews

Do the Robot by justaskalice reviews
Lizzie Bennet Diaries. The words "Hey Lizzie, do you want to get your groove thing on" were never uttered by William Darcy. Upon further reflection, that may have been more successful than what he actually said. Based on Episode 33.

The Avengers by infinitely-climbing reviews
Denial isn't just a river in Egypt, you know. Lizzie and Will really do like each other. They just won't admit it. So what's the solution? Lock them in a closet until they get together, of course. Fluff with a side of cheesiness. :Modernfic, oneshot:

Pride and Prejudice in Space by non-damsel reviews
Not modernized, but futurized! Elizabeth is a scientist on a war zone fringe planet; Darcy is a politician and galaxy golden boy. May sound strange, but come on, give it a chance.

Evening and Morning reviews
LBDverse. My take on what happened after Lizzie and Darcy got together. Dancing and snuggling, and her mother's reaction in the morning. Hilarity ensues.
