Paulo CoelhoIn this clean, hilarious PP variation, Fitzwilliam Darcy entered the Lambton Inn shortly after Lizzy received Jane s letter informing her of the disastrous news that Lydia, her youngest sister, had left Brighton and eloped with George Wickham In Darcy s mind, he was already making plans to go and search for the couple Before he could leave Lizzy, he looked back and saw that her anguish was not so much over Lydia s scandal, but at his leaving So, what was any respectable lover to do He turned back and reassured her of his devotion and affection Together, they devise a plan that was so outrageous, that it just might work The rest of the story was a mad dash to the Scottish border, misleading stories, and the diversions and distractions of key people Then there was the mad dash back to London to do damage control This trip was hilarious as Darcy ran into many members of the ton who were staying at the same Inn due to a sporting event being held in the nearby town This was hilarious Darcy now faced not only his cousin but a host of husbands belonging to the ton s worst gossips Oh, dear Our dear Colonel Fitzwilliam Rumor travels faster, but it don t stay put as long as truth Will RogersRichard and a squad of specially selected soldiers were on a quest to retrieve an AWOL Wickham and restore Lydia to her family He was quick with his wit, his sword, and his plans to see Wickham pay for his crimes I loved his planning, his maneuvering of Wickham was brilliant and insightful Richard wasn t a colonel for nothing he earned his position He was large and in charge.Lydia Gossip, as usual, was one third right and two thirds wrong L M Montgomery, Chronicles of AvonleaUncle and Aunt Gardiner took Lydia to Gracechurch Street and tried to get her to understand the consequences of her actions and finally prove to her the real reason Wickham took her with him from Brighton In this story, Lydia was a bit smarter than canon Lord Hastings When it comes to gossip, I have to readily admit men are as guilty as women Marilyn MonroeRichard s older brother, the Viscount Lord Hastings, absolutely stole the show I love this guy and his interactions with Mr Bennet were hilarious Those two were a pair This guy made me giggle I looked forward to seeing him on the page Caroline Bingley was a bit smarter in this variation She quickly saw which way the wind was blowing and maneuvered her sails accordingly Yeah much smarter actions on her part to the point of being amusing La Did I just say that This story is to be enjoyed for what it is a farce and a what if loosely based on the PP story It was a quick read and I thoroughly enjoyed it I couldn t help but chuckle out loud several times when I hit the Oh My Gosh sections I loved this Lizzy and Darcy

s reputation be saved if she doesn t Oh, he thinks, Let s Give Em Something To Talk About thank you, Bonnie Rait besides Lydia If he and Elizabeth elope, the gossips will assume they were mistaken about which Bennet sister headed for Gretna Green, and Fitzwilliam Darcy is certainlygossip worthy than George Wickham The plan works beyond their most optimistic expectations It s really fun to see how the gossip evolves and how it s cleverly manipulated Colonel Fitzwilliam, his brother Viscount Hastings , and his mother Lady Matlock all play key roles here There s lots of humor as Darcy is repeatedly frustrated in trying to arrange alone time between him and his new bride.Clever story, good writing Lighthearted read I really enjoyed this This short story is about 66 pages long and well

carriage in which the servants are to travel after the weddingno need for chaperones then Ironically, Mr Bennet has searched in London and then, after no success, decides to search in Gretna Green on the slim possibility that they did, indeed, elope to there Imagine the chagrin of the newlyweds as they step out of church and find Papa Bennet Then, of course, they have to include him in their carriage on the way back to Londonand further, they meet Darcy s cousin, the Viscount, at one inn Will this couple ever find time alone to celebrate their union Gossip s use and how it is so meticulously spread by Lady Matlock and some others was fascinating to read of A dropped hint here and there, a supposition about what she meant and a conclusion reached due to hints and even a newspaper reporter s unexpected presence at one inn all adds to this whisper down the lane effect which does have the consequence ODC meant to happen The colonel adds to substantiating the overall story by escorting one culprit around London and introducing her to members of the ton.Part of what was so gratifying in this story was what happened with that first set of eloping lovers Someone did learn a lesson and I was very happy with that variation of the story.I recommend this, especially those wanting a short, satisfying story Nothing travels faster than light, with the possible exception

a terrible lot of lies going about the world, and the worst of it is that half of them are true Winston Churchill In this Pride and Prejudice variation, Darcy proposes that he and Elizabeth elope in order to cover for Lydia Hopefully, the gossips will talk about The Darcy s so that Lydia will not have to marry Wickham Of course, all sorts of fun stuff happens on the way to Scotland and on the way home There is also the reactions of family This was a nice quick read. Seriously funny story I m going to show my age and hereby describe the story as a hoot.Lots of plot lines interwoven together to create a very fun story If it was a movie I would say in was in the comedy genre of slapstick wisecracking A similar movie would be What s Up, Doc , the Barbara Streisand comedy.I recommend the story. |READ BOOK ⚇ Fitzwilliam Darcy Elopes ♰ In an effort to distract attention from Lydia s shameful behavior, Darcy and Elizabeth run away to Gretna Greentps dwiggie derby bethwm Very lovely tale Super enjoyable Well developed fun Worth all of my time.
