    One thought on “Christmas in Derbyshire: A Pride and Prejudice Variation”

    1. I love happy, low angst, Christmas stories, and this is just that. It also add a really original twist. Our what if asks "What if Mr. Wickham didn't turn down Mr. Darcy's senior bequest and instead became the parson at Kympton?" Now Darcy isn't happy, he knows Wickham doesn't have a real calling, and the 'good Reverend' is excessively attentive to Georgiana so Darcy trades Wickham to his Aunt Catherine for a parson to be named later. Thus Mr. Collins is the newest recipient of the Living at Kymp [...]

    2. Will love be true as December frost, or fickle and fall like the rose in June? ~ Clement Scott, "In Sight of Home," c.1883A Tale of Two Parsons the best of times the worst of timesDarcy has been forced to accept a clergyman he cannot respect. It’s one thing when Darcy must attend services conducted by that clergyman. It’s one thing when the clergyman does nothing clerical except conduct services. It’s one thing when the clergyman spends most of his time in nearby Derby gambling and involve [...]

    3. What if Darcy did not go to Netherfield? Did not wind up at the Meryton Assembly to have Elizabeth overhear his slight of her? What if they didn’t meet at all until after Mr. Collins marries Charlotte Lucas? No Wickham involvement, no ball at Netherfield, no proposal at Rosings… No Pride and No Prejudice?? Sounds boring, right? IT’S NOT!This was written in a decent Austen-like voice, but it was sweet and warm. It was wonderful to see Lizzie and Darcy meet and just immediately get along, it [...]

    4. Christmas in Derbyshire: A Pride and Prejudice VariationTotally enjoyable from start to finish. While Wickham was in the story, his presence near Pemberley was handled by Darcy in a rather clever maneuver. Of course, this clever maneuver brought the not so clever Mr. Collins to Kympton. When Sir William and Maria visit Charlotte in November, Elizabeth comes with them. Darcy finds any excuse to invite the group from the parsonage just to be near Elizabeth. His holiday house party brings the Bingl [...]

    5. Not your typical Darcy (and that's a good thing!). Lizzie has heard varying stories of Mr. Darcy of Pemberley, and is anxious to see just how proud he really is. She finds, instead, a warm and caring man. This version is low on angst. I wasn't totally "feeling" the story, I wasn't feeling the emotion, just reading for the sake of reading. I REALLY didn't like the Wickham part of the story. I know that Darcy is proud and doesn't want to spread information around, but the way Wickham was handled ( [...]

    6. In this Pride and Prejudice variation, Wickham has actually taken Holy Orders to be the vicar in Kympton rather than taking the payout! In order to keep Wickham away from his sister, Darcy manages to swap his vicar with Lady Catherine's newly selected vicar - Mr. Collins.Darcy never visits Netherfield. Elizabeth, therefore, first meets him in Derbyshire as a guest of Charlotte and Mr. Collins. He is immediately drawn to her and comes up with all kinds of ways to be in her company. They have thei [...]

    7. Fun storyOh my, the sentence in Collins letter to Mr Bennet was 121 words long! Great job!Darcy meets Elizabeth in Derbyshire where she's visiting the Collins family with Maria. Darcy had " traded" his vicar ( Wickham) for Lady Catherine 's Mr Collins. Without the families and friends around them Darcy and Elizabeth become friends who enjoy talking and taking long walks. Christmas party consisting of the Bingley family, Lady Catherine and her solicitor, Colonel Fitzwilliam and several other grou [...]

    8. Avid ReaderThis was a sweet story about Darcy and Elizabeth. I always like their meeting away from Longbourn. Darcy is always happiest and friendlier at Pemberly. This time he entertained guests at a house party.
