Summary: Mr Bennet happens to walk into the hallway of Mr Gardiner’s house, just in time to see Mr Darcy request to call on him, an event which changes everything.

Gioia’s Rec:
This story is well written and does a good job of showing the post-Lambton events from the perspectives of Mr. Darcy and Mr. Bennet. I recommend it for the purpose of seeing their POVs.
My only critique: The fic’s premise really isn’t followed through very well. Very little diverges from canon, and it certainly isn’t “an event which changes everything.” In actuality, it changes nothing. Events proceed exactly as in canon, except that Mr. Bennet knows of Darcy’s involvement.
