Jane Austen’s Advent – Day 6 – It Happened One Christmas, Caitlin Williams — 26 Comments

  1. Oh Caitlin, poor Darcy. I hope he can improve Elizabeth’s feelings for him while he is stranded there. At least he might then enjoy it. I’m so looking forward to seeing what happens and hoping for a kiss under the mistletoe 👄 💏

  2. Lovely beginning! The glimpse at Darcy frustrated and furious enough to swear and throw and kick his hat was very funny. He looked rather more human than an ice statue then! I hope Elizabeth softens towards him soon!

    • Thanks Agnes, I am really glad you enjoyed it. He certainly is human and as capable of getting cross as the rest of us. I am sure they will both soften, being forced to spend several days in the same house together must mean they will better understand one another.

  3. Once again, farcy and Elizabeth are poles apart!
    It’s good for her to see him kick his hat! Makes him human!
    Can’t wait for more!!

    • Absolutely, he’s not the perfect romantic hero, that’s for sure, but he will be showing his better side in the next chapter. Thanks carol

  4. Excellent story. How fitting Darcy is stuck at Longbourn. After his temper tantrum is over and he faces the reality of the situation, let’s see how he ignores the fine eyes of Miss Elizabeth Bennet. Wouldn’t Caroline Bingley throw a tantrum if she knew where he was stuck! Let’s hope he realizes Jane’s feelings about Bingley during this time. This little trip and being stuck at Longbourn is his penance for being so high and mighty while in Meryton. Can’t wait for the rest of the story.

    • Thanks Carol. I’m sure Darcy will have an opportunity to see Jane’s goodness and perhaps feel a bit guilty about his interference

  5. Darcy and Lizzy together for Christmas! How fitting. Maybe the Christmas spirit will come upon Darcy and Lizzy and bind their hearts together.

  6. What an amusing story, Caitlin!!! Mr. Darcy stranded at Longbourn over Christmas, well before he learns his lesson in true civility and proper humility?? Oh, this is going to be FUN!!!

    I can’t wait to see what happens next!!

    Thank you, Caitlin, for this lovely Advent treat!!

    Susanne 🙂

  7. I do wonder if Mr. Darcy sees Elizabeth and Mr. Bennet watching his ungentlemanly conduct! Now I wonder where the true spirit of Christmas is going to hit…can Elizabeth forgive him and see the good man underneath that pride and can Mr. Darcy see beyond his nose and the love the Bennet family have for each other despite all their foibles. May he let that Christmas spirit touch his heart. Thank you for this delightful little tale!

  8. Great beginning! already makes me wonder what happen next! Thankyou Caitlin for wonderful christmas story. Happy Christmas and happy holidays!

  9. Loved this story and can’t wait to find out how Christmas and its inherent magicality will work its charms on Lizzy and Darcy! Perhaps the ghost if Christmas future will pay a visit giving them a unique snapshot into their possible future felicity to be found in the arms of the other?
    Yes,I’m eagerly anticipating the next instalment!!!
    Thank you for such a wonderful story!

    • Thanks for reading, Mary. The Bennets, for all their faults, are a warm and loving family. I am sure it wont take them too long to win him over and that Elizabeth will start to see his better qualities:)

  10. Thank you for this gift of another story from you. Looking forward to reading the other parts.

    How ironic that Darcy has to spend holiday time with a family he looks down upon and with Elizabeth, whose attractions are nullified by her own connections and lack of a dowry.

    And we know he has separated Bingley from Jane.
