anghraine: drawing of a regency lady with dark blonde hair side-eyeing someone (darcy [f!darcy - catherine])
it was nice and i'm gay for miss catherine darcy because of fucking course i am

Mission accomplished, tbh. <3

(Honestly, I am still gratified after all these years that Catherine turned out to be the highlight of First Impressions for ... like, everyone who did like it. She was absolutely the reason I wrote it, so lol, SUCCESS.)

A Tumblr anon asked:

I don't know if you answered this before but do you think Mr. Collins proposal or Mr. Darcy's first proposal was more insulting?

My response (predictably):

Mr Collins. Darcy manages to stop short of 1) itemizing her dowry, 2) saying nobody else would ever want to marry her, and 3) insisting that no means yes because women are sadistic liars.

There's a voice meme going on at Tumblr, and roane72 asked me to talk about my favourite character.

...I managed to restrain myself to a mere thirteen minutes of squee about Darcy

[Tumblr crosspost]

The TV Tropes page for Pride and Prejudice was looking like it had been cleaned up, apart from the insistence on the (imo superficial) interpretation that Elizabeth is genuinely indifferent to Darcy, and then

Oblivious to Love: Elizabeth initially has on idea that Darcy is interested in her and mistakes his interest as disapproval, which is justified given his unkind remarks at the first ball and tendency to stare at her without smiling.


AGGGGGGH

To give an idea of just how much brain power I have these days, I'm pretty sure the height of my fannish production at the moment are my brief, loose recaps/interpretations of random favourite scenes in P&P:

- Darcy enduring Sir William, poorly
- Darcy enduring Sir William, well(ish)
- rating male hotness: fun for the whole family!

At least I'm in an Austen mood.

(Taking eighteenth century lit probably helps!)

I got an excellent response to my "but he's a MAN" post wrt Darcy. Nearly two months ago and reading it still restores my faith in a benevolent universe ;)

I feel that P&P adaptations in general really don’t get the pacing of Darcy’s letter.

There is something I somehow never considered in my 10+ years of high intensity Darcy stanning!

I talked about this on Tumblr and ... uh, Facebook (all my second cousins needed to know!), but probably the best place for it is actually here. And then, since it's dreamwidth, I kept going :)

It's long and rambly, so short version: Pemberley as described should generate far more than ten thousand a-year, so either 1) Darcy is the most generous man alive, 2) the reports of his income are all wrong, or 3) he inherited some serious problems.

I didn't sign up for [community profile] month_of_meta , but I did want to do something, preferably several somethings, as they occurred to me. A lot of this is probably familiar to my f-list (I originally did it on Tumblr), but I think it's worth repeating a few dozen times :)

disclaimer: it doesn’t mean your fic is terrible badwrong if you don’t do these things or that nobody likes it or that your fic is even not good or that I am a perfect Georgian-period Austen fanwriter who has followed this to the letter from seventeen onwards, it’s just stuff that makes me (and most of my friends, but don’t worry, I’m not a BNF), more likely to read. Also, I tried to list things that are helpful for fic based on any of the novels, but the examples are from P&P since that’s like 95% of the fandom.

I was hoping to catch up before my birthday in *squints* forty minutes (though I guess I can give myself until 8:10, haha), which seems fairly unlikely. But, more!

This is a thing that just happened!

Anonymous asked: Oh my gosh, yes. Why do filmmakers think that Darcy never smiled? He thinks Elizabeth's hilarious, and laughs with her (while she thinks he's laughing at her). WHY DOES NO ONE UNDERSTAND DARCY?

Bless you, anon. He smiles more than anyone except Elizabeth. He’s even smiling in his portrait, and Elizabeth is like ‘oh, just like he used to smile around me, aww.’

The one that particularly gets me is the whole conversation about their faults, where Elizabeth tells him his biggest fault is hating everyone, and he replies that hers is misunderstanding everyone. It’s almost always played as ~angry sexual tension~ - but in the book, he’s smiling as he says it. He likes arguing and he likes her and he’s having a great time; Elizabeth is the one who’s angry and convinced that he’s mocking her, when he’s really ‘haha zing!’

Ugh, Darcy really might be one of the most misunderstood characters ever.




wheeee

I got my Yuletide letter! I have no idea what to do! So, getting into the spirit of things, I wrote around three times the minimum requirement in the last twelve hours for something completely unrelated.

title: assurances of attachment (1/2)
verse: First Impressions! (always-a-girl!Darcy, always-a-boy!Elizabeth, spoilers for literally the entire fic)

A friend on tumblr is encouraging me to do Yuletide. I never have and there are some very appealing fandoms there (Mansfield Park! Heyer! The Hollow Crown! Emelan! She-Ra!) - and after the au_bigbang, 1k is nothing - but ... idk. I got pretty spoiled the last few years!
