Summary: After Jane calls on the Bingley sisters in London, their efforts to prevent her meeting their brother come to nothing. Bingley is as enamored as ever.

Gioia’s Rec:
I liked the way this fic didn’t overly romanticize Elizabeth & Darcy’s journey just because they met in London after Bingley left Netherfield. Spending more time around each other isn’t automatically the remedy to their misunderstandings – they still have to come to understand their own individual failings first. Very nicely written with solid characterizations.
My only critique: Much like the final line in the movie “While You Were Sleeping,” the author uses the fic’s title in the closing conversation of the fic in a way which had me affectionately rolling my eyes.
