P&P: Behind the Scenes – Darcy and Bingley Talk About a Return to Netherfield — 25 Comments

  1. I always enjoy your stories. Bingley is his jolly trusting self and Darcy although he’s made no confession, has made the first step – hooray !

  2. Bingley, so like an eager puppy and so ready to jump at his “master’s” command. We do know he was influenced by Darcy! But at least this time it is in a good way and for Bingley’s benefit.

    Thank you for this added “behind the scenes”.

  3. Another wonderful scene. I am loving all these extra scenes which I didn’t really miss from the original until I started reading them. Now I am just hoping that somehow they can all be slotted in and released if that would be allowed. Thanks for this Kara Louise.

  4. Such a lovely little scene. Bingley once again is easily persuaded by his friend, but this time with his own inclination rather than against it. I was wondering if Darcy would “‘fess up” about knowing that Jane was in London over the winter, but this is a lighter, more Bingley-esque moment. Once he has secured Jane, then Darcy may confess. 😉

    Thank you for a wonderful start to my day!

    Susanne 🙂

    • Thanks, Susanne. I think Darcy is treading lightly both with his feelings and his friend’s until he knows more for certain how things stand between them and both Bennet sisters. 🙂

  5. Great Behind the Scenes chapter. Darcy still didn’t admit his part in this separation. He says he abhors deceit and deception, but cannot get the truth out to Bingley. So happy they’re going back to Netherfield.

  6. I love to read all the “behind the scenes” as it adds so much to get particularly Darcy’s thoughts and feelings. I like how you are true to Jane Austen’s P & P in that I feel it is inferred that Darcy does wait to observe Jane again before confessing everything to Bingley and telling him his changed opinion of her feelings.

    Love this! thank you!

    • Thanks, Evelyn. I’m glad you are enjoying them. You have to wonder just how much Jane considered ‘behind the scenes’ as she wrote. 🙂

  7. I like how you separated Bingley from his sister. He deserves a break from her meddling. I like how Darcy “talked” him into it. It should not have been too hard to do. I enjoyed this snippet; I am eager to see what else you all have in store for the behind the scenes.

  8. Thanks, Patty! I’m not sure how many more there are that will be posted here. We had published a book of these scenes a few years back, but are revising some of the scenes and adding to them. The ones being posted now are the newer ones that will go into a new book to be pubished sometime in the future.
