http://www.faulkes.co.uk/heather/nfc/
Well-conceived, well-written short story (2 chapters). Elizabeth and the Gardiners travel from Lambton to tour Pemberley, and this is the FIRST time Elizabeth and Darcy meet - no prior meeting at Netherfield, and no prior meeting at Rosings. Elizabeth DOES know Mr. Wickham, however, and her initial impression of Darcy is not a positive one.

I love, Love, LOVE this author! Super-short one-shot that proves it doesn't take length to tell a good story.

Elizabeth's a teacher who dated William Darcy but dumped him when she found out he tried to separate her sister Jane from his friend Charles. Jane and Charles are now married, but Elizabeth still hasn't forgiven William. Pretty good, but nothing noteworthy here. Nice execution of a predictable plot.

https://www.dwiggie.com/derby/denver1...
Good idea, good writing chops, but it rambles too much. Yeah, unpublished--also repetitive, with characters relaying to others events that happened previously in the book, probably to remind readers following as a W.I.P. Considering it was posted back in 2010, that's no longer a consideration. Just adds unnecessary length.

I do love the premise: After Hunsford, Darcy immediately attends to fixing the two issues of contention between Elizabeth and him. He gets Bingley to Gracechurch Street even before Elizabeth has left Kent. And he goes to Hertfordshire to protect the Bennets and the people of Meryton from Wickham. He also sets a plan in motion to wrestle control of Rosings from Lady C. and have Anne take over. He and Col. Fitzwilliam get Anne away from Rosings, but the book ends before that particular storyline is fully wrapped up.

Darcy explains why he HAD to buy Georgiana a pianoforte. One-shot.

64. A New Beginning (unpublished) - 5 stars
https://m.fanfiction.net/s/4661917/1/...
Excellent story wherein Darcy shows no pride and actually exhibits his best qualities when he and Elizabeth first encounter each other in Hertfordshire. However, he still suffers from an overabundance of social snobbery, which is his downfall when he decides to propose to her and save her from the rest of her very objectionable family. Very well crafted, as I was concerned the second half of the book might become a too-long HEA but instead revives what otherwise could be considered tangents from the first half of the book. A few small errors here and there, but far fewer than normal for an unpublished work. This was posted way back in 2009 - I'm surprised this author hasn't published. My thanks to Elin, whose recent list reminded me that I already had this loaded in my kindle and hadn't gotten around to it. Content is technically clean, but still VERY steamy.

64-and-a-half. The End of the Beginning (unpublished) - 5 stars
https://m.fanfiction.net/s/5135566/1/...
Only one scene that's a sequel to #64, and this one is definitely rated MA. It's the consummation on their wedding night. Beautifully written, and a nice complement to the story for those who don't object to bedroom scenes.

https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12930788...
Modern, magical, fun, one-chapter. Elizabeth and Darcy have a history; she refused his marriage proposal. Since then, a warlock changed her into a frog and the story commences just after Darcy kisses her and she transforms back into a human. Not a quick HEA. It turns out she wasn't the only one under a spell.

(Nicked from Kirk) 5-chapter very short story
Elizabeth and the Gardiners journey to Derbyshire the previous summer, merely a week after the events at Ramsgate. When they call upon the great house of Pemberley, who should happen to return suddenly but the illustrious Mr. Darcy and his heart-broken sister.

Cute modern one-shot. Lizzy is Mr. Darcy's assistant dealing with personal problems by getting pickled and calling in sick for the next work day. He shows up. It would be a marvelous turning point scene in a full-length short story.

111. Unwittingly (unpublished) by Ms. Primprenelle - 4 stars

One-shot sequel to P&P starring Lydia, who's now a favorite aunt to her Pemberley nieces and nephews. Surprise ending. Dark but satisfying

www.fanfiction.net/s/11332802/1/
SUCH an impressive story told via correspondence. Like Lady Susan, only without the humor. Trigger warning for battered wife syndrome/off-page violence. Elizabeth is unhappily married to Mr. Collins. Three chapters.

117. Letters from Darcy (unpublished) - by I found my Mr. Darcy - 5 stars
www.fanfiction.net/s/11444392/1/
Same story as #117, only told from Darcy's POV via his correspondence. Eight chapters. I'd raise my rating from 5 to 5+ if the two sets of letters had been combined chronologically.

151. At Death's Door by Shaelenina (unpublished, 16 chapters) - 4 stars
https://m.fanfiction.net/s/10958304/1/
This is a very interesting Pride and Prejudice variation that begins about a week after the Netherfield ball. Elizabeth receives an impassioned note from Georgiana (whom she has never met) begging her to come to the Darcy Town home. Her brother has become seriously ill and, in his fevered state, is calling for Elizabeth. When she gets there, Mr. Darcy is, indeed, very ill and likely not to survive. Elizabeth gradually gains an understanding of his true character and his opinion of her from his sister, his servants and, most especially, by reading the letters Georgiana received from him when he was at Netherfield. The story needs some polishing up, including getting rid of a lot of non-Regency language and modern slang, but it's quite good.

Free short story/sequel to Cousin Emma: A Pride and Prejudice Variation when you sign up to be on the author's email list: https://us12.list-manage.com/subscrib...
This is a quick read, a delightful little tale about Lady Huntingdon (nee Kitty Bennet), who's hopeless when it comes to managing her husband's estate -- or even finding her way around it without getting lost. She's panicking over the hunting party she and Lord Huntingdon are hosting, especially with the intimidating Darcys and the Dowager Duchess among the expected guests. Will she be exposed for the silly airhead that she is?
I LOVE this! Ms. Langley's usual whimsical humor and entertaining characters.

162. Regret & Retribution (unpublished) by theofoz - DNF (2 stars?)
www.fanfiction.net/s/9486128/1/
I made it to 35 of 51 chapters. Meandering plot with nothing driving it. Beyond boring, except for the premise that Elizabeth married Colonel Fitzwilliam, who died in her arms after being injured in battle. She and Darcy are both widowed with children (she's actually pregnant with Richard's child), they're deeply in love with each other, but they wait until a respectable period of mourning. Author with excellent writing chops but no apparent structure to her story.

Excellent story beginning where Darcy has just handed Elizabeth his letter. When he gets back to Rosings, Colonel Fitzwilliam fortifies him for a conference with Lady C using copious amounts of alcohol, and Darcy's loss of inhibition inspires a stroke of genius to handle his pushy aunt once and for all. The book proceeds from there with other incidents where Darcy does the unexpected. It's been a couple of weeks, but I believe the writing itself is quite good for an unpublished work.

Interesting modernization/variation. LOTSA typos, misspellings, left out words, etc. - more so even than the usual expected amount in an unpublished story. It's long, too, with excessive repetition. Despite that, it's reasonably well written, and I liked the story very much. Elizabeth is a struggling single mother teaching at a school primarily attended by students from wealthy families - such as Georgiana Darcy, who is going through typical teenage rebellion.

Elin Eriksen (vaarin) | 245 comments Good luck Debbie, may 2019 be filled with intriguing books!
Happy birthday! Wish you a fabulous day.

Debbie (dmbrown) | 633 comments Thanks, Elin! Happy New Year to you and your family too! Sorry about the misinformation, but it wasn't actually my birthday. When I got nervous about Facebook and identity theft, I tried to delete my real birthday, but since something already had been entered there it would only allow a change. Picked Jan. 1 for no particular reason.
