Summary: We all know what Fitzwilliam Darcy’s perception of the Bennet family is, but what of Elizabeth Bennet’s perception of that gentleman’s family? This story explores another side of our beloved P & P tale, in which our hero and his lovely lady are forced to maneuver through innumerable obstacles before they are rewarded with their ‘happily ever after’ ending.
I had reservations about this fic based on the OOC behavior of Col. Fitzwilliam, a few canon mistakes, and some other issues. However I ended up enjoying the story far more than I anticipated due to a plot filled with intrigue and, er, smut. This is probably another one of those stories about which you should determine ahead of time that it’s simply a romance based on P&P. Don’t expect it to be true to canon any more than Bridget Jones was.
My only critique: The above-mentioned OOC behavior of Col. Fitzwilliam and a few canon mistakes.
