And now I wish I had not read so fast! :)
Their coming together again was truly heart warming. There is a thrill in every look, every word, every gesture!
Elizabeth's persistence in the supposed friendship is a little cloying. Even after Malvina, Darcy and Jamie have all commented. I do not think male camaraderie is just something turned on at will. Not when so much was destroyed in one foolish moment.
It would be very difficult to ever really believe it truly back again. Even if Darcy does unravel the mystery of Jamie's arrest. Gratitude and amity are not the same thing. Elizabeth should know this from the vicissitudes of her own relationship with Darcy.
Just in case I have time on my side I am going to start again with ASP from the beginning. Just to savor again all those delirious moments! Who knows by the time I get back to this point there may be another chapter or two - or three or........
It is hard to talk about favorites - since the exclusion can be more revealing then intended. However there is an enchantment about these two stories that I have little encountered before. Tanya - you have truly entertained and even bewitched me.
I miss this story soooo much! PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE update soon!!!!!!!!!!........
So i have taken up a snow day and enjoyed this story...now they are together and ready battle for Lizzy's brother...whats up with Georgie and the Col??
I do hope to see another update soon
I love so much this story.
I already read it twice, because is enjoyable, even if it is not finished.
Please continue it, to our selfish delight!
Thank you! (Well, with Christmas festivities and all, we can wait for January... but we miss you! Have a Happy Christmas!)
My message contains spoilers!!!
WOW! After reading practically non-stop for 2 days I have just finished what you have so far. I really love this story. I have seen the stories where they have to marry because Darcy has compromised her in some way and they always end up in love at the end but, this one is so much more unique. The fact that Darcy wasn't exactly "in love" when they were forced to marry is such a great concept!
I am eager to see what happens with Jaimie but I have to say that when the story took us to India I kind of lost some interest because I was really just waiting for Elizabeth to stop being ridiculous and get together with Darcy! But, now with this cliff hanger and knowing what happened in India I am eager to see how they get out of this predicament. There's Wickham again, always causing trouble!
I am glad I started this story when it had 32 chapters or I would have gone crazy waiting for Darcy and Elizabeth to get together! I don't know how everyone else did it.
Me, too! I agree as well! It is such a greattttttttt story that I have always loved. Please let there be more!
Any news of when this story will update. Miss it so much! I feel like it's been years.
Sorry, ladies, for the long wait, I can so imagine your impatience!
However, Tanya is expecting a baby, so I expect her priorities lay elsewhere at the moment. Anyway, I'll send her an e-mail and hope to get back to you soon with good news about the newborn and perhaps... her older written baby
oh that is unfair! now I won't have the heart to make tanya feel a little guilty for leaving us to wait this long
now I can only say: waaaaaaaaa! this is wonderful news! CONGRATULAZIONI from Italy
A Baby! Congratulations. Well I don't feel right asking for anything so I'll just say
I'll say a prayer for you and let you know that your story isn't forgotten.
Congratulations. Hope you and your baby are well.
I feel robbed!! I just started reading this story two days ago, got completely engrossed in it and couldn't put it down, and then realised when I got to the end that it wasn't finished, and then realised that this website hasn't been updated in years and now I realise that I may never get to find out what happens!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Is the rest of this story somewhere out there in cyberspace? Please say yes!!!!
Hi, as far as I know this one will be forever incomplete. This website is pretty much dead sadly. Great stories on this site! I especially loved this story too. It's too bad.
I'm so sorry! Tanya's story won't be finished, I fear. A couple of years ago I stopped my activities on the site, but decided to keep it online since so many still appreciate the stories of which some haven't been posted elsewhere.
Renée O aka Mrs. Darcy
What a fabulously engrossing story.
As i approach "the end", i'm distraught to thnk it won't be resolved.
What a bummer!
Man......cannot believe it's been 16 years since this was written or at least since feedback for this story was opened. I was three years old when this was posted. I stayed up until 6 am on a Saturday night devouring this story. I cried heavily (thankfully my college roommate was gone...it was quite some obnoxious sobbing) and was awash with heart-wrenching misery and anger and anguish for all those years apart and the misunderstanding god but also overwhelming happiness and giddiness. I must say it's been a long time since a story has touched me so deeply. Thank you for this beautiful story. I hope the author is out there and reads this. Truly, I am at awe. I have no hope it might be finished but if it ever was, I'd be here in a second.
Either way, thank you for this gift. You took a novel I love so so much and managed to place them in a different world, with different siblings and stories and I love them as much as I love the original. Thank you, thank you, thank you for this. It's reminded me of why we love literature, why we love to consume art and lose ourselves in stories. Thank you.
I've just reached chapter 12 when curiosity got the best of me and goshdarnit! It made me so indescribably sad to know that it's abandoned! So wary of continuing, knowing that it will never reach its conclusion, and I'm now resorting to savour each chapter by reading ever. so. slowly. and. ever. so. carefully. This is one time that I would prefer to be blisfully ignorant.
savor it for sure! but know that the cliffhanger is not unbearable in terms of darcy and elizabeth's relationship so dont worry
I needed the reassurance - you have no idea how much that tidbit of info calmed me (was pretty distressed scrolling down this thread) onward I go!
yeah trust me, the big conflict is resolved, its more of like a minor plotline that comes up not relating to their relationship :))) and ik as i was reading id scroll down and be so happy when i saw "click here to read more of the story" so sad itll never be updated but we're really lucky with where it ended
All right! So you're saying there were no major unresolved issues.. and they were plausible enough to have a happy ever after? *bites nails nervously*
For me, it's resolved, but just short of totally happily ever after. I'm resigned to it never being updated. And if it is ever concluded it would have to find a new home! I'm thankful for Renee for keeping this site up.
I've reached the end and- what can I say- I'm already starting to feel tell-tale signs of withdrawal syndrome.
At one point I felt let down by Darcy, so disappointed was I that I couldn't really bask in their happiness at the long awaited reconciliation. His instinct to drown his sorrows in the arms of Valerie/other women whenever he's in turmoil is truly, truly upsetting to me. Granted that he didn't get to actually do the deed but, still.
This story was recommended to me but I see it is unfinished. Are there plans to complete this story? I hate to begin a story which seems to have given up the ghost.
I have heard a lot about this story..where do I read it? Unable to find a working link.
I think Tanya's site was deleted. This is the saddest day.
To all of you who still would like to read the story, Tanya is posting it on AHA:)
That is the best news ever! I was just talking to a friend about how sad I was to think I'd never find this fic again.
What is AHA? Could you link it?
Here's its new home for those who want to read!
