Re: Story recommendations

Just finished a good story - had a hard time putting it down and thus abandoned a few chores this weekend.

Check it out!

Re: Story recommendations

I do believe "No More Tears" caused me to miss a lot of chores, too, Maura! It was excellent.

Re: Story recommendations

I would like to recommend this utterly beautiful story called Silk and Ivory. It's really touching!

Re: Story recommendations

I just finished reading "Some Like it Wild" and it was terrific, so I thought I'd pass on the link.

Basic description: Elizabeth dresses up as a man to escape being forced to marry Mr. Collins.

Re: Story recommendations

Just finishing up a good one (I don't think it's been mentioned here, but I confess that I didn't check all the older posts).

Obligations of Love and Duty by Ali (she's a very strong writer and her Darcy is just lovely).

Re: Story recommendations

Hi,

Just wanted to share a beautiful story I just spent the WE reading. Love and Other Accidents by Paperclipz over at ff.net. It is a very well written and realistic modern P&P. the plot is both original and faithfull to JA's, it's intense and witty. I especially loved how the author wove some very beautiful poetry in the text, made me discover a breathtaking piece by Margaret Atwood. definitely on its way to my hard drive.
It's not new, was completed in 2006, i stumbled upon it by chance and I don't remember seeing rec'ed before. hope you enjoy.

Re: Story recommendations

Thanks, girls, for your recommendations. They sound fabulous. Will check 'm out asa I have a little bit more time.

Re: Story recommendations

I would like to recommend Very Improper Behavior.

http://www.dwiggie.com/derby/suzo3.htm

It is a very amusing and sweet story and I must say one of the best ones I've read.

Re: Story recommendations

Thanks for the recommendation, Izabela

Re: Story recommendations

Loved that story, Izabela! Perfect! Thanks for the recommendation.

Re: Story recommendations

OK, so this one is a story in progress but it is so crazy good that I cannot keep from recommending it anyway. And it holds a certain appeal, to read it chapter by chapter and wait anxiously for another one. This is seriously one of the best stories ever. And funny, too. And excruciating and intense and.. ahh. Just read it.

Re: Story recommendations

Thanks for the recommendation, Izabela!

Re: Story recommendations

I am wrapping up a wonderful P&P sequel called 'A Fitzwilliam Legacy' - you can find it here:

http://www.thehiddentower.net/penandink/t_AFL.htm

Beware that it is long so like me, you will likely start to feel that the characters are like old friends and you will dread the story coming to an end.

Re: Story recommendations

Rori
I second Maura's recommendation . I read "An Unforgiving Temper" some weeks ago and it certainly has some interesting twists. It is very harsh at times though, and angsty, as she said. But what I especially remember is that the baddies are really vicious.
She's got it published now.

Available in several eBook formats here:

An Unforgiving Temper by Gail Head
http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/44623

Those formats are for the Nook, Kindle, iPad, etc. as well as any PDF and others.

She will soon have it print on Amazon and Barnes & Nobles.

Re: Story recommendations

Maura
I'm not sure if this story has been recommended yet and I'm sorry if I'm repeating, but I'm in the midst of reading An Unforgiving Temper by Gail H. and am finding it very intriguing - lots of angst just so you know, but it has a very different premise than many I've read so that's nice.

Check it out here: http://www.austen.com/derby/gailh1.htm

Re: Story recommendations

I LOVE that fan fiction is coming out in Kindle format. Thanks for letting us know...

Re: Story recommendations

Hi Izabela, I am totally hooked on the FF you recommended called "One Thread Pulled" on fanfiction.net. Just want to tell you thanks!

Re: Story recommendations

Hi,

Just wanted to recommend a piece I just finished. It's called "A Fair Prospect" by Splatt. The plot is a "what if" Elizabeth and Darcy had been thrown together repeatedly in London right after Darcy's botched up proposal. It introduces a few interesting new characters and although the time frame of the story is short, about two weeks, the pace is fast and entertaining.
One might feel that the character's feelings undergo fairly quick transformations but the characterisation is convincing.
It's a long and really well written story alternating Elizabeth's and Darcy's points of view, definitely on the romantic side but, I felt, very enjoyable.
Also the story seems to based more on the 2005 film than the novel, It did not bother me.
you can find it at Pen and Ink if you have not read it yet:

You are welcome. She has her own web page now and has it published in printed form on Amazon and Barnes & Noble too.

AN UNFORGIVING TEMPER

Re: Story recommendations

Another rec, so soon after the last one but if you haven't read it yet you should REALLY read Juliet R's remarkable Miscommunication.
It's a modern, novel-length, P&P retelling with a rather inspired initial plot twist.

The characters will become so familiar that you'll be sad to leave them (luckily it will take you while to get there).
you can find it at AHA and in pdf format at the Pemberley Library.

Where can I find Pemberley library username and password? thanks!

Where can I find Pemberley library username and password? thanks!

Log in to AHA, go to the Messages, Announcements & Site Question thread, then scroll down to Cjoki's thread "The Pemberley Library - Login/Password"
The current one is listed and any changes or login problems would be there too I expect.

BTW, Thank you very much Cecilly for such a lovely endorsement!

Re: Story recommendations


Hi!
I want to recommend this story because it is so much FUN!!! It is PG-13 so far and it is a modern comedy.
You will have a very healthy dose of laughter every week and a good share of romance too.
Barbara is posting regularly and her muse is like Tom&Jerry - full with crazy ideas.
