Pride & Prejudice recs



Fandom Category: Pride & Prejudice
Pairing: Elizabeth Bennet/Fitzwilliam Darcy, Jane Bennet/Charles Bingley
Fic Title: Twilight of the Abyss
Author: Casey C.
Link: http://austen.com/derby/old_2008/caseyc1.htm
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: Alternate universe, angst, romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Possibly one of my favorite stories for multiple reasons. One, though one hiccup in their early acquaintance is avoided, Elizabeth and Darcy still face many obstacles in their path to 'happily ever after'. Two, the characters of Jane and Bingley, so often left in the dust in comparison to Elizabeth and Darcy, are this time shown to be strong, determined, and complex characters in and of themselves. Stories that provide Bingley with a backbone are some of my favorites. Three, watching Darcy go through his change in character without the events of the Hunsford proposal are just as remarkable as what we saw in the book. Definitely a wonderful read.




Fandom Category: Pride & Prejudice
Pairing: Elizabeth Bennet/Fitzwilliam Darcy
Fic Title: No More Tears
Author: Linnea Eileen
Link: http://austen.com/derby/linnea5.htm
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: Alternate universe, angst, romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: It's amazing how much can change when a single life is prematurely taken, and the author relates the story from its original premise in a most excellent manner. Darcy and Elizabeth face complex and difficult times in their life together, and both are forced to undergo the changes in their characters under much more strained circumstances. Despite the title, the couple shed many tears before they finally reach the point where they can truly come together. Nonetheless, it's a beautiful fic well worth the time to read.

Pairing: Elizabeth Bennet/Charles Bingley, Kitty Bennet/Fitzwilliam Darcy, past Elizabeth Bennet/Fitzwilliam Darcy, past Jane Bennet/Charles Bingley
Fic Title: Particular Attachments
Author: Allison OM.
Link: http://austen.com/derby/old_2008/allisonom.htm
Rating/Warning(s): PG; non-canon pairings
Genre: Alternate universe, angst, romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Though a highly radical alternate universe, the story is still a highly enjoyable one. Branching off from the Hunsford proposal, things go badly for everyone for some time. Still, watching the characters grow and strengthen from their difficult circumstances is highly interesting and entertaining. The author also makes the characters and pairings believable. The characters all still feel the weight of their shared pasts, but also manage to come together to forge a better future for themselves, even if it is not the one originally intended for them. One of my favorites.
