Parson Darcy, Heir of Longbourn
So this bunny bit me earlier in the week and it won't leave me alone. I finally decided to write down the opening scene. It's rather convoluted and would be very far from Canon but I'm really interested in the idea of a convenience marriage for Elizabeth wh...

Reforming Mr. and Mrs. Bennet- Part II
I posted the other week about reforming Mr. and Mrs. Bennet for a story I'm editing before publishing this fall. Tentative title is Knowing You by Heart but I think it might change to Letters from the Heart . Anyway, I wasn't entirely sure where I was going...

Reforming Mr. and Mrs. Bennet
So I'm working on editing my next story. It's another novella but I'm hoping to double it's length to make it more firmly in the novella camp and because there were just a lot of scenes that didn't get much attention in either posting (first as The Best Lai...

So Good an Understanding- an Emma what-if
I thought I had posted this awhile ago. During A Happy Assembly's July and August playground prompt of "Ballroom Missteps" I started working on an Emma variation. I have to confess, the 2009 adaptation is my favorite Austen adaptation. I like both the 1995 ...
