P&P: Behind the Scenes – After the Bennet Sisters Depart Netherfield — 14 Comments

  1. Poor Darcy. He thinks he’ll have peace. His mind is completely engaged with thoughts of Elizabeth. He’s a fool in love regardless of his denial.

  2. Peace….that won’t come for nearly a year….Elizabeth will continue to haunt him. Poor deluded man…Elizabeth can’t be wiped away like snuffing a candle Darcy can verbally deny the attraction but his heart and mind say the opposite….he is hopelessly attracted to and in love with her.

    • I think the time spent with her at Netherfield cemented the feelings that had begun. No, she won’t be wiped away that easily. 🙂 Thanks, Deborah!

  3. I love Darcy’s little conversation with himself. Oh how he is trying to delude himself and how unsuccessful he will be. He will be a tormented man for a long time and after Hunsford the torment will only get worse. I hate to chuckle at him and what he is going through, but it is tempting. A delightful chapter, Kara.

  4. After much denial and pain, things will work out and you’ll get your HEA, Darcy. Just hang in there.

    Lovely vignette, Kara. After 28 years of thinking life goes in one, well planned out direction, you get taken for a major loop of reality. Funny how the heart wants what the heart wants.

    • Very true, rae. We see Darcy in a battle between his heart and mind. And fortunately for him, his heart will eventually win out! 🙂

  5. SIGH! So many contradictory thoughts. We know that he is just glimpsing the bumpy ride his feelings for and relationship with Elizabeth are going to put him through. Great chapter, Kara. Thank you.

    • Thanks, Sheila! I had to smile when I thought that even Mr. Darcy’s fine well-spring carriage won’t help the bumpy ride his feelings will take him on!

  6. Why do I so enjoy watching this man suffer? This is an amazing vignette, Kara–you captured Darcy’s every nuance so well–his erect carriage slumping down as he practically prays for peace…a peace that unfortunately will not come for another year and a second proposal on a quiet country road…. 😉

    Thank you for writing this–it’s heart-wrenching yet entertaining all at once.

    Susanne 🙂
