Pairing: Lizzy Bennet/William Darcy
Fic Title: Actions May Speak Louder Than Words, but Sometimes You Really Need the Words
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13, sexual content
Genre: established relationship, fluff.
Why This Must Be Read: This fic has a fantastic Darcy voice and is a brilliant look at what Darcy and Lizzie in a committed relationship might look like. Also, if you like pining, I feel like this fic is an example of someone pining while simultaneously being in a relationship with the object of his affections. Impressive, William Darcy, impressive.
A serious long-term relationship is a waltz of compromise. One cannot have everything one's own way. So once a week he went shopping with Lizzie and did not take offense at her occasional verbal sallies over expensive cheese. He also kept mum about any monies he might be donating to organizations that aid needy children. He didn't see why he couldn't eat delicious French cheese and feed orphans at the same time.
