So I think I might be slightly crazy for attempting this. I adore Jane Austen, and this idea just wouldn’t leave me alone. While the plot is essentially the same, I have obviously adapted the characters slightly, and the language is a bit more modern. As always, please review! : ) Many thanks to my wonderful beta, IncurableRomantic.

Two postings in one week! Woohoo! I'm not usually that fast, but I kinda wrote these together, and my awesome beta got it back to me quickly! Hope you all enjoy it. :)
I don't own Doctor Who or Pride and Prejudice; all recognizable quotes come from one or the other.

The Netherfield... um, I mean, the Torchwood ball! This event is so pivotal; I agonized over it a bit, and I hope I did it justice. Please review!

I don't own Pride and Prejudice or Doctor Who; I just play here. Much love to my terrific beta, IncurableRomantic, for curbing my rambling sentences and reminding me that we live in the 21st century (and that a little explanation goes a long way). : )

Sorry for the wait on this one, lovely readers. I am so encouraged by how many people are following this story, and tremendously thankful for the reviews! :) Fans of the novel will see a bit more digression here with the character of Mr. Collins; I hope you like it. (crosses fingers)

Many thanks to IncurableRomantic for her beta services.

Much love to those of you who are still with me! You've been very patient, and I hope this chapter doesn't disappoint. I always struggle through the chapters when Elizabeth and Darcy are apart. Little changes to the story and characters in this one, and much love to my amazing beta, IncurableRomantic, for helping me try to keep the characters true. I did mess with it afterwards, though, so all mistakes are mine. And I always love to hear what you think!

This chapter's dedicated to Ash, who requested a specific version of its events... aka, the rain scene. I am sorry that it took so long - I might have agonized over it just a wee bit. I hope you like it! (crosses fingers) Many thanks to all of you for reading, and especially to those who have reviewed - your encouragement means the world to me!

Beta’d by IncurableRomantic, who properly rocks.

Disclaimer: As always, I own nothing. There will be some familiar dialogue that just demanded that to be left alone, so I did. All credit goes to the incomparable Jane Austen, the lovely screen adaptations of P&P, and the writers of Doctor Who.

More revelations! I apologize for the long wait on this chapter. Real life combined with a healthy dose of self-doubt stymied my writing for a bit. Thank you so much for reading and all the lovely support!

Update 05/24/14 - I'm so sorry for my absence!!! Family crises combined with a wonderful yet very tired first trimester have shifted this to the back burner. I am working on it, however slowly, and hope to be back on track in the next couple weeks. Love you all, and thanks for being patient with me!! :)

I am so sorry for the wait! Life has been absolutely mad here, but hopefully things are settling down a bit. And, for those of you lovely readers still with me, I have the next chapter almost done, so it should be less than a week - I promise! You all are wonderful. Thanks for reading and being so patient!

Of course, I own nothing. All credit goes to the fantastic Jane Austen and the writers of Doctor Who. Many thanks as always to IncurableRomantic for the beta.

Only one more chapter to go after this one! I hope this was worth the wait. :) You will find a couple familiar (and beloved) lines, because, well, I had to!! I own nothing; all credit goes to the fantastic Jane Austen and the writers of Doctor Who.

Thanks to all of you for reading; I appreciate each of you so much. A huge thanks to my beta, IncurableRomantic, who took extra time to help me get this one right, and to Stetsonfreak, who put together a lovely graphic for the story:
