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