P&P Missing Scenes – Pemberley, 1845 — 24 Comments

  1. Darcy’s love and reminiscences of their life together is so beautiful! It shows just how much Luzzy means to him. Sigh. I love the comparison of love ‘improving like Brandy with age’. Thank you so much Abigail.

  2. That truly was very beautiful, and as one of those lucky people that was fortunate to find the right man, I can say that while no marriage is perfect, it can be perfectly wonderful with the right spouse. I married my Darcy almost forty four years ago. Like this lovely chapter shows, there are joys and sorrows, and with the right person, we weather the sorrows and celebrate the joys. Thank you for some lovely writing that brought tears to my eyes, and a heartfelt smile to my lips. This was a delight.

  3. I don’t have the words to convey the feelings this generated in me.

    Thank you Abigail. Jane couldn’t gave done better .

  4. I really enjoyed Darcy’s retrospective. You made it so easy to feel the love as it grew from one of initial attraction to a real partnership. Thank you!

  5. Ditto to all above: tears in my eyes, sighs galore. So very lovely. Thank you. So love the repeat of his words from his disastrous first proposal.

  6. Thanks to all for the wonderful comments! This is a piece I wrote some time ago after watching a play with an unhappy older couple, and to wash the sadness out of my head, I wrote this.

  7. So touching…. I really love the description of how society and fashion chaged during that time. Its easy to have D and E stuck in time but you did a great job making it real.

  8. That was so sweet, and so nice to “hear” all that from Darcy. I hope he shares those thoughts with Elizabeth at some point! It was also interesting to have his reflections of weathering the changes around them, and the parts that were uncomfortable (the poverty and pollution?) given how comfortable they already were in their life at Pemberley.
