Malena I was laughing so hard my daughter's husband thought I was crying.
What a great chapter. See know we know why I don't write where you went was so much better.
Darcy is going to have to get suspicious when Bingley all of a sudden can hold a literary conversation.
That was hilarious! The whole scene at the Bennets' had me in tears. Poor Bingley! Thankfully, as you said, he's a gentleman and won't take advantage of this situation the next time... Now Lizzy is going to Longbourn, "on foot" I wonder how will they react when they meet.
Can't wait for your next post!
The picture of all the Bennet girls, holding up their night dresses and screaming was hysterical. Then Mr. Bennet and Hill with the brooms was just too much.
Thank you, thank you, thank you. You've made my evening!
So Bingley has the best night of his life and Jane simply... sleeps ?
Bingley's morning meeting with the Bennet clan was hilarious ! Please update soon !
"The picture of all the Bennet girls, holding up their night dresses and screaming was hysterical. Then Mr. Bennet and Hill with the brooms was just too much"
Exactly! Everytime I picture that scene I lose it
I can't wait to see Elizabeth's confrontation with....herself
My dears, chapter 5 of this hilarious story has just been posted. Enjoy!
R~ <- still
"Once he had figured out all that the rest was not half as difficult" Charles to the rescue!
LOL! I can't wait to see Caroline get what she deserves. This was a wonderful chapter. I loved having Lizzy's mouth spouting Bingley's words. Delightful!!
Thank you for another chapter. If Jane has a brain she must be quite cofussed by Lizzy/Bingley's comments.
I'm dying to see how Bing/Lizzy and Lizzy/Bing receive each other.
Need I say more please.
I have to second that! This story is highly amusing!
Loved Bingley in Elizabeth's body beating up Collins and then trying to jump from the window. BasE did what E would never have done, but what reader didn't want E to slug Collins when he steadfastly refused to take no for an answer?
Malena, your story is not only hilarious but deeply satisfying to those of us who never quite got over the frustrations of canon, when Bingley is fooled by his dupicitous sister and well-meaning but wrong-headed Darcy into leaving Hertfordshire.
How nice to see Bingley in on the truth of sweet Jane's feelings and able to halt a travesty. Now, how will Bingley in Elizabeth's body get Darcy to admit that he -- Darcy -- likes Elizabeth-- but will Elizabeth seem so attractive now that she is in Bingley's body?
Bingley seems confident that the body-switch is temporary--I hope it's as easy as he supposes it to be, but for some reason, I suspect it may not be so simple. Would be happy to be wrong. I love this story and dying to see what happens next!
Hilarious, as always, Malena. Mr Collins got his just desserts, I love love love that. The nerve!
Finally Bingley finds out right on time about his scheming sister's plans. What is she/he going to do about it?...
And finally, Lizzy/Bings is on his/her way to Longbourn, but we know how she likes to walk cross-country. So, it makes me wonder... are they going to meet along the road, or are they going to miss the chance? Can't wait to find out!
Love this story!
Imaging izzy trying to escape out the window was too funny
Will Bingley & Lizzy have a chance to compare notes!
And how will Bingley get Lizzy to change her mind about Darcy!
Can't wait for more!
Awesome chapter ! That was hilarious ! So many things happened ! Poor Bingley, to be kissed by the slimy toad ! So will Bingley and Elizabeth meet ? Will Bingley tell Darcy that Elizabeth hates his guts ? Or will he try to convince Elizabeth that she is wrong about Darcy ? I can't wait to find out !
Malena, I've been too busy to reply, but this story just keep getting funnier and funnier. I'm enjoying myself immensely.
Malena it has been awhile will you be updating soon?
Here you go, Geri and all other fans, chapter 6 has been posted on Malena's pages. It's hilarious, Mrs Darcy couldn't stop laughing... and so sweet at the same time. *sighs with contentment*
I loved, loved, loved this chapter ! It's hilarious ! I love the awkwardness Elizabeth feels in a man's body, the way she fights her attraction to Darcy, you write Darcy and Bingley's rapport beautifully, they look so comfortable and easy together, their friendship rings so true ! It seems Darcy is very close to the truth, I hope he realizes pretty soon that his gut instinct is right, it will make things even better !
Bingley/Lizzy squatting to pee, Darcy watching him I can't wait for Darcy to see them together and how they act. He'll figure it out on his own but will he help them? Very funny.
This was syuch a funny chapter! Loved Bingley calling him "Sir" & "Mr Darcy" and Elizabeth calling him "Darcy." And the scene in the woods was priceless!
Hahahahahahahahaha!!!! Oh, absolutely brilliant! You really made my day!
brillant! this story is so funny and witty
Those around me thought I had become suddenly deranged I was laughing so hard. But the funniest line had to be the very last of the post.
More, please--gotta see how Darcy reacts to Elizabeth's enthusiastic greeting. I can imagine, but yours has proven so much funnier!
As always, hilarious!! But how could you leave it there?! Please, post soon!
can't stop laughing! please post soon.
Darcy you have come says Elizabeth. Oh dear I lmao. Will Darcy figure it out?
Oh, this was too much fun!
If Darcy was suspicious, Elizabeth (Bingley's) greeting of him must make him even more so!
Love it! Can't wait for more! (Although I love 'Parson Pleasure' too!)
This is laugh out loud funny!!!! Thank you so much!!!
[...] yet her figure, her voice, her scent had already unleashed a little storm within his pantaloons [...]
Rush over to Malena's pages, my dears, another hilarious chapter of A Naughty Star has just been posted. Enjoy!
Loved the word "sternutation", a new one. Bingley going off with Lizzy. Darcy in an uproar both in body and mind. Too funny. More please.
This story just keeps getting better and better! The interaction between Darcy and "Elizabeth" was classic. I was so glad to see that you posted this chapter so soon. Can't wait for the next one!
Loved the word "sternutation", a new one.
That is excellent, dearest. Actually, my beta suggested that I should change it, but I decided to take a chance and keep it against her advise. It sounds academic.I am relieved you guys got the meaning.It is similar to 'estornudar', which is the Spanish for sneeze.
The interaction between Darcy and "Elizabeth" was classic.
I purposely re read those lines that belonged to Bingley. In the BBC 1995 series, featuring Colin Firth and Crispin Bonham Carter, he asked the line "Have I your approval?" al least twice to Mr Darcy. That is why I included that line. I can even see Mr Bingley, clad in pink lace, flashing a smile to Darcy as he asked for his approval.
Thank you girls. I love commenting the story after each post!
" Look at me. Miss Bennet herself helped me into this frock. It is a little tight, especially here (he touched the front of the dress where it pushed her bosom upwards). "
That chapter was hilarious !
"Charles" and "Elizabeth"'s conversation was so funny ! Darcy and the Bennet sisters must think them mad ! the way Charles trusts Darcy's ability to see through his appearance is really cute !
It's hard to select what make me choke most with laughter in this chapter, but I think it was Bingley and Elizabeth each offering each other an arm and then figuring which one is the gentleman who gets to offer an arm, before they walk off together. What will Darcy and the Bennet sisters think about such a tete-a-tete between Bingley and Elizabeth?
And with Darcy worried that Elizabeth will try wield some arts and allurements over him
Oh my you had me laughing so hard in this chapter I scared the puppy. I am surprised that Lizzy/Bing isn't angry with how Bingley/Liz portrayed her.
The other Bennet girls in shock at Bing/Eliz behavor. I have to say it is hard when they are together keep it straight which one is which.
More please soon
This getting funner & weirder and I like that. Loved the part about Bingley's stays!!
Thanks Geri and Lucy
I am not surprised people or pets getting shocked while you guys read the story. It happens to me while I am writing it. ] I laugh so hard my husbands looks at me in his own quizzical way. Sometimes I come with an idea while doing the washing up, so you can imagine...
Geri,Mr Bingley and Miss Elizabeth are teh impersonations while every time I say plainly Elizabeth or Bingley, I am refering to them and not their incarnation.
Lucy, can you imagine Darcy's look on hearing Miss Elizabeth saying such outragious thing? Next there will be a bastly vexed Darcy, you'll see.
Thanks for commenting!
Oh, Malena, this is too rich!!!! RFLMAO!
This was simply brilliant. Darcy's discomposure was described with hilarious perfection. The horror at 'Miss Elizabeth's familiarity combined with the pleasure of her attentions had me laughing out loud. Finally, the exchange of 'Miss Elizabeth's and 'Mr. Bingley's at the end was priceless.
I can not wait for more.
Dear Ellen and Ruth,
To be so regularly praised by two well known fan-fic authoresses is no small thing to me. I thank you both and hope to keep up with expectations.
Your writing is simply brilliant! My husband thinks I'm insane - I can't control my laughter while reading this wonderful story. Thank goodness Bingley and Elizabeth found each other...but I am concerned for Jane and Darcy as well. What hilarity!
Great job and many thanks for the smiles!
I think all of our husband think we're insane. That's ok. We intrigue them anyway and they love us for it.
Loving your wonderful story.
