Why This Must Be Read: The obvious question to ask in any modern AU is whether the original work of fiction—in this case, Jane Austen's "Pride & Prejudice"—exists in the world of the AU. Usually the answer is no, but this fic explores the case where the answer is yes, where Lizzie and Darcy hold in their hands an obscure novel that weirdly predicts their lives, and where things don't turn out quite the same as a result, except when they do. Kyrieanne is a master of the slow burn, but this fic is one of her best, given how wisely it investigates the meta situation it creates while while still staying true to the characters and to the universe in which they exist. This story is creative and clever and, really, what you read fanfic for.
