Summary: During her stay at Netherfield, nursing her sister, Elizabeth goes to the library to find a book, finds herself sleepy, and lays down briefly. Before she can either fall asleep or get up, Mr. Darcy enters and declares his love to the woman he believes is asleep.

Gioia’s Rec:
This was such a delightful story.  It is another good example by this author of how little changes in canon can make some big differences in the plot progression, and yet how much the characters themselves stay intrinsically the same, in all the best ways, of course.
My one critique: If we’re being strictly adherent to both the Regency setting and canon characterizations, it’s probably unlikely that Darcy would have made the confession that he does.  But since the whole point of “what-if” fanfic is to see how small changes in a characterization or plot point would change everything, so this possible OOC action was not at all a problem for me.
