Story Summary: A married Darcy and Elizabeth reunite after a week apart.

Gioia’s Rec:
This is such a fun, delightful story!  I must freely admit that I enjoy stories in which Caroline Bingley is made to look foolish, and the way in which that happens in this fic makes me grin wickedly every time I’ve re-read this fic…and that’s a lot of times!    In this story, Darcy and Elizabeth met and were married prior to the Meryton Assembly, unbeknownst to Miss Bingley.  The sweet, romantic newlyweds are a joy to see, of course, but what really sets this story apart is Miss Bingley and her entertaining reactions to this shocking news.

My Only Critique:  I suppose the story is a bit unrealistic in some ways, and it certainly defeats the purpose of Pride & Prejudice by leaving Elizabeth and Darcy each without a lesson to learn.  But I think that only the strictest of canon purists, those who don’t enjoy any AU or what-if takes on P&P, will fail to enjoy the lovely fantasy in this story.  Ahhh, if only!
