I'm happy and proud to announce that an author I've admired for years has joined Mrs Darcy's circle of fanfiction authors. Belen, I wish you a warm welcome and I'm sure Mrs Darcy's visitors will adore your stories as much as anywhere else.
Ladies and gentlemen, it is with the greatest pleasure that hereafter I am proud to annouce Miss Belén, well-known ARGENTINIAN authoress of PP fanfiction.
Welcome my good friend. Let us show the world real Latin savoury storytelling.
Belen, I'm so excited to see another of your stories! I'm a great admirer of your work; I'm always re-reading one of your stories or another. As a former equestrian, there's a soft spot in my heart for "Obstacles to Overcome" (plus Darcy in breeches is HOT).
I'm loving "The Eye of the Storm." Darcy & Elizabeth, on an isolated, romantic island ... I can't wait. And I appreciate the fact that although Mr. Collins is still Mr. Collins, he has a spine! It's refreshing to see - or is that read - him doing something other than kissing you-know-what all the time. And Lady C ... she's so bad, I love her!
This is going to be great! Thanks again for all your hard, Belen, & I look forward to more chapters!
are you the same Belen from Austen Interlue?
I love this title already, I can't wait to read it, though I haven't read the beginning yet, I had a scroll over and it looks good, the summary looks good too
I just cannot express how happy I am that I can read your new story. Two first chapters got me intrigued, you can really feel the atmosphere of this island. So far it seems to be a slightly different from your previous stories which is really great! I can't wait next chapters. Thank you !!!!.
Very good chapter, Belen. I like Anne. I guess I like all the characters except Lady C. I wonder if Darcy feels as if he has to marry Anne just to rescue her from her evil mother. I love a mystery so keep up the good work!
Your name rings a bell Belen, until some readers mentioned here that you have wrote Obstacles to Overcome, then I remembered I read your story last year! I enjoyed that story alot and have to add that in this new story, your writing style is so different and it sure holds our attention and I can't wait to read what's going to happen in the next chapter!
Oh! Not sure how I missed this update, Belen. I like the way you're offering tiny tidbits of Darcy's true character to be revealed through Anne's conversation with Elizabeth as well as Darcy's own words.
I continue to feel sympathy for any poor soul within a mile of Lady Catherine. She is a piece of work. Since this is a dark mystery, I'm hoping that Lady C will fall victim to some murderer. I just wanted to know, are they going to draw straws to see who gets to kill her???
Although I have already had a look at it(and you know the extend of my look quite well, my friend)I cannot help enjoying reading it again on the page at Mrs Darcy. It has a different flavour. Maybe it is the lovely setting it has been placed in. Whatever it is, I am delighted.This scene of Richard I just love.(You know me) I must thank you for this. It is a great treat to my female sensibilities!Mmmmmmm
Renee! Thanks for having mercy on me and posting Belen's awesome chapter.
Ohhhhh!!!!! There's more tha one storm brewing! I adore the Richard and (lively) Anne combination...let's hope Lady C is taken out of the picture by the storm so that they can be together.
I know! Lady C can be out by the cliffs telling the wind which way to blow and the wind can suck her right off her precarious perch. Yup! I like it....though I'm sure it isn't nearly as intriguing as what you have in store for us.
By the way is Maria a tattle tale? One of Lady C's spies? Please tell me no, even if you don't mean it! LOL
Belen; I have been reading your work at AI as well and am so glad you are here at Mrs.Darcys. I am really enjoying Anne & Richard...perfect pair...now what's up with Darcy & Lizzy? She's not happy with him right now so how is he going to redeem himself isolated on that island? Oh what a tangled web you weave...
What can I say Renee? My Richard Fitzwilliam has his charms...great personality...You will soon see a whole new fanfiction world built around him, too. You cannot imagine how much I whined around Belen to have her write sth nice of him...But she sticked to Austen's version that he was not handsome. Yet, he is very sexy, isn't he?
Thank you Belen!!
Belen thanks for another excellent chapter! Things are getting really intresting! It is so hard to predict what will happen next. Your descriptions of the island are very real, tangible, one can imagine it easily and feel the atmoshpere of the place. Once again you managed beautifully to create this special chemistry between Elizabeth and Darcy. He is even more intriguing in these circumstances.
I can't wait the next istallment.
I thought it was him. He is an excellent actor and he used to be really handsome when he was young. Now he is a bit old and kind of spooky...but still amazing. I lastt saw him playing the part of Zoolander's father, a miner. Hilarious! The good thing of the man is that he is so versatile!He can be funny, spooky, dangerous...I remember a movie in which he had these premonitions and no one believed him until things happened.Great performance.
From the old days I love this great film director who used to make westerns, what was his name?The one that directed "Million Dollar Babe." Oh I used to love him!I can't remember his name!
Well, I think my original theory is correct, they will draw straws to see who gets the privilege of killing her. Or maybe they'll pull an Agatha Christie and each of them can have a go at her so that its not certain who actually did the deed.
If my theory is wrong, then I pray for a very stray bolt of lightning to bring her life to a 'shocking' conclusion!!!!
Got hanged in the air again! Hope your next chapter is coming soon .....Lady C is soooo manipulative, and it is nice for a change to see all the 3 cousins voicing out their opinions (even though it doesn't matter in Lady C's eyes). Looks like Lizzy could be playing sleuth, since she has been catching all the gist. Look forward to the next update!
Just read the first four chapters and I have to say that so far this is one of the coolest stories I've read in a while. Love the way you've described the scenery and created a sort of threatening undercurrent, a constant feeling that danger is lurking just around the corner. Or something. Anyways, lovely:)
