All That This Entails

What is your go-to comfort read? My comfort read of 2020 has been any story with Fitzwilliam Darcy as one of the main characters. Admittedly, I quite new to Jane Austen Fan Fiction. But, I fell fast and hard.

As I was reaching for to Austen more and more this year, I realized there was a whole world I had yet to explore with more Austen-goodness to read. This Pride & Prejudice did not disappoint!

In a twist of fate, Mr. Bennet is now titled and wealthier than Mr. Darcy. The story picks up after Elizabeth has rejected Mr. Darcy’s -ahem- less than romantic proposal. What unfolds next is simply a beautifully long wooing of a man in love with a woman.

I found both Elizabeth and Darcy in this story to be very likable characters. What really won me over was this new, modest, and dare I say even a slightly unsure Darcy. The side story of Jane and Mr. Bingley was also fantastic. I highly recommend All That This Entails, even if you haven’t previously read Austen Fan Fiction. We could all use a little more Darcy in 2020.

I am the daughter of a Duke!

ELIZABETH BENNET COULD SCARCELY CREDIT THE NEWS when a letter sent to her father, from relations she did not know existed, informed them that untimely and unfortunate events would result in Mr Bennet inheriting the dukedom of Everard. In the blink of an eye, the Bennets’ lives are transformed— Elizabeth and her four sisters are wealthy, titled, and the talk of the ton

AT PEMBERLEY, FITZWILLIAM DARCY is still stinging from Elizabeth Bennet’s rejection of him at Hunsford when he learns the extraordinary news. Elizabeth Bennet—now Lady Elizabeth—has been elevated in an extraordinary fashion and is soon to become the most sought-after lady of the season. 

But Darcy’s heart still belongs to her, as much as it ever did, and he sets off for London determined to win her hand. But can he prove to her that he has changed, particularly when her entire life has just altered? 

This Pride & Prejudice variation is a novel-length tale using the characters of Jane Austen in a story of the author’s imagining.

    Thank you for your post. We do need a littlemore Darcy every year 😉

    Anyway, eager to know how the Bennet ladies (including Mrs Bennet) behave now that they are titled and rich. Also wonder if Caroline will push Mr. Bingley now towards Jane’s direction?
