Summary: Unaware of his cousin’s feelings for Elizabeth, Colonel Fitzwilliam decides to follow his heart instead of his purse and ask Elizabeth to marry him. She happily accepts him. Darcy is shocked when he hears.

Gioia’s Rec:
I was surprised to find I really enjoyed this fic. I’m not sure it’s precisely in-character in all points, but it’s a very interesting story. Elizabeth’s relationships with Darcy and Col. Fitzwilliam is handled with far more decorum than some authors would’ve managed. It’s not anywhere near as angsty as one might imagine.
My only critique: There’s a scene at Pemberley between Elizabeth and Darcy that bothered me a bit.
Note: The PG version is on Austen.com, the Adult version is on webspace.webring.com
