Mr Darcy

Poor fellow. His beliefs shaken to the core by the harsh rejection of the woman he loves. And his emails one constant reminder of that unfortunate conversation and all that followed. Thank goodness for happy ends.

diane P + Kath: your kind comments are most welcome, ladies. Consider yourselves invited to the next Famous Inboxes ball.

Have to say though that it’s so much easier to do when you have such wonderful characters (like Darcy) and a good story (like P&P) to work with. Kudos to Ms Austen.

I’m laughing quite a bit more than I should be at Elizabeth’s “Oh yes, and you can stick your good opinion up your–”! Well done, sir!

Too funny – I could also easily see Trails.com GPS coordinates for the trail at Rosings he keeps “accidentally” finding Elizabeth on.

“Wet shirt centrespread”

Ah, who could forget the 1995 Pride and Prejudice with Colin Firth in a wet shirt?

And kudos for the fancy spelling on “centrespread.”

“I might have put my foot in it” actually DID make me laugh out loud.

I think the hardest part for me is jugilgng. Writing short stories for my blog while finishing my book takes so much of my time. I am on my first rewrite which is a major project. These days it is expected that writers have a platform to roll their book out to. It is a lot of work!

This is so cool and funny. I was just searching on the net anything related to The Lizzie Bennet Diaries and somehow Darcy’s and Elizabeth’s inboxes got mixed.
Couldn’t stop laughing. And laughing more when I got the Harry Potter mails.
Great job!!!
Um, can you do Sara Crewe, Miss Minchin and Lavinia from A Little Princess too? Just trying my luck. ;p

Thanks. I’ve been too busy to do any new inboxes, but I’m hoping to start again soon…

this is so funny – it would be a great basis for a modern retelling of p&p.
