Thank you for the beginnning of what I feel will be a wonderful story. I could feel Darcy's torment and then his relief through your words. Now, of course, I am anxious for another chapter. I am also thankful to hear that your story is complete. Cindy
I've read this before at another site. It is my all time favorite fan fic. While I'm happy to re-read it for about the tenth time, I was wondering if you have written any other stories? I'd love to read them!
Glad to see you're now posting this story here. Loved it before! (I also loved the multi-part story you once posted elsewhere--the one that had Lizzy composing melodies in lieu of scales. I hope you post that one here too!)
I loved it Kim, and am eager to read more of your work. Get posting! :D Just kidding, I do hope you will be posting soon and frequently. This is a nice different take on how the two of them reconcile after Hunsford and I am very excited to read more.
THANK YOU FOR THIS BEAUTIFUL BEGINNING. I MUST HAVE READ IT SOMEWHERE BEFORE CAUSE IT RINGS THE BELL BUT STILL I DO NOT RECOLLECT WHAT HAPPENED WHATSOEVER. LOOKING FORWARD FOR THE NEXT CHAPTER.
AH! AND MOST WELCOME KIM!!
Many thanks for all of your kind comments! They truly are appreciated.
Good golly Margaret, you have a very good memory! I did "write" (in the most liberal usage of that word!) the very thing you mentioned. I nearly break out in hives at the thought of anyone discovering where it is hidden though! I "wrote" under a time restriction, with certain guidelines & at the time my computer skills were so limited that I typed the story directly onto the screen= no spell check or anything (not that my computer skills have improved very much !!).
I was just thinking abt this story today! And here we got a new chapter . I would dearly like to hear Darcy in his knight voice too . This is so cute yet brillant at the same time, can't wait for more chapters!
What a heartwarming story! I love the way a child can draw Darcy's true character out...let's hope Lizzy isn't blind to this fact when she herself tries to sketch his character! Can't wait for the next chapter!
About your other story: I always edit the stories I download, so any errors you might have made were expunged from my copy long ago. What remains is *very good*! You manage to put an original slant on P&P (as you did in "As Fate...") & all the vignettes have a similar warm tone to them. All of the Lizzy/Darcy scenes are very satisfying & I especially liked the Darcy/horse chapter, and most particularly, the scene between Mr. Bennet & Lizzy before she goes on her jaunt to Derbyshire. I don't think I have *ever* read a scene with Lizzy & her father that was so touching. Superb writing.
Now. if that isn't enough of a compliment to spur you to post, I don't know what will do. (I will happy to beta for you if you wish. )
I will stop tormenting Kim and the rest of you! After all, she has just begun to post 'As Fate Would Have It'. But I did want to strongly encourage Kim to consider posting the other piece here when she's finished with AFWHI. I am unrepentant about raising the issue of the older story (series of vignettes, really), since it seems she had forgotten its virtues.
i wanna read more, what going to happen at the ball, will darcy behave like a love stick fool just to impress lizzy?
i love p&p always, what going to happen next? how will lizzy get to know the gent, darcy is? lol hopefully you update soon, what do you mean by 'as fate would have it'
Kim: Thank you, again for another interesting chapter! This is a great story that can keep on going. I love how Darcy tries so hard to show that he has listened. Her comments to him have been taken to heart. He reveals more and more of his true self to her! Waiting for another chapter!
Kim, I believe I haven't commented yet on your story. I am loving every chapter, and this last one was fantastic! Loved their exchanges, love how off-balance Darcy was during his interaction with Lizzy, LOVE how she gets the last word (figuratively). How long will I have to wait for the next chapter?
Interesting, but where are they and what happened to there aunt and uncle. I eagerly await the next chapter to see what is going to happen, maybe explain a bit more?
Great job of writing another chapter!
I like this little adventure they have ....it revealed a little more of themselves to each other. A knight in shining armour rescuing a damsel in distress, oh such romantic notion and so appropriate too . Can't wait for more of their adventure, or interaction, in the cabin !
