Author has written 15 stories for Pride and Prejudice.
I am a long time fan of Pride and Prejudice, stemming from my first reading in AP English class a few decades ago. I lived many variations of the story in my mind over the years and love the various movie adaptations. I generally see Mr. Darcy as portrayed by Colin Firth, but also enjoyed watching Laurence Olivier in the part. Greer Garson was a delightful Lizzy but that version seems so like a Cliff's notes rendition of the story that I have trouble taking it seriously and return to the 1995 miniseries in my mind. I read a great many variations and actually have a kindle dedicated almost completely to my P and P library. I am so glad that so many people are willing to share their stories. I finally decided it was time to write down my own. In fact it grabbed me by the throat and insisted it wouldn't let me move on until I did. Several others have done the same now and I am having a lot of fun with them.
Shameless Plug: For any folks who enjoyed the single season sci fi/buddy cop show "Second Chance", my cousin, who posts under KellyBat1219, is engaged in writing an imaginary second season. In my opinion she is doing quite well at it too. She and I got hooked on the original and both of us binge-watched the entire season in a weekend. Like so many writers in P and P-land my cousin got to the end and wanted to know what happened next. So she decided to find out by writing it. (She had previously written fan-fiction for "The Fugitive" for the same reason, but unfortunately none of that is posted here) I was intrigued by the concept of the original show and how it was presented, but was never really drawn to any of the main characters. My cousin has given them a more sympathetic treatment and I am certainly having fun reading the result. She has written it with each chapter representing an episode and hopes to write the equivalent of a full TV season, filling out the underlying story arc. Its on fanfiction.net under TV Shows - Second Chance. If you aren't familiar with the show I recommend watching season one before reading - it is readily available on both Netflix and Amazon video. Her stories won't make a lot of sense without the background of the first season. If you do read it I hope you leave a review or comment for her. Just as I am now finding, its a real pick-me-up and incentive to keep writing.
