joke’s on darcy, lizzie happens to be besties with mrs collins so do you know what that means? visits. do you know who mrs collins will inevitably bring WITH her???
mr collins. buckle in for some one-sided conversations on the grandeur of pemberley and how there is but one estate only marginally finer, he thinks you will no doubt agree, which can only be, of course, rosing’s park, which can be viewed by his own very humble abode
they’ll all have their dinner and the women will retreat to another room and darcy will stare very, very imploringly to his wife to please, stay. like, please. this man doesn’t shut up. surely you want to talk to him. let’s tag team. please lizzie. he will ask of nothing from you for an entire fortnight if you please actually stay in the same room so mr collins will have SOMEWHERE ELSE to direct his onslaught of ass kissing. lizzie. lizzie.

jane austen really just repeatedly said “the sexiest thing a man can be is kind, selfless, attentive and honest about his feelings” and, as always, she was correct every single time

idk what it is about pride and prejudice that’s so appealing. maybe it’s the fantasy of telling a man he’s self centred and arrogant and he believes it and changes for the better

Can you imagine being Mr. Darcy and throwing yourself into a lake in a fit of agonized yearning for the woman who has rejected your marriage proposal and whom you think you shall never see again. After getting thoroughly soaked, you stride out of that lake undressed and she is there. She is at your house and you are indecent. You then have to make the most agonizing small talk, all the time aware that you are soaking wet and half-dressed, while you both politely pretend you aren’t. You inquire after her parents’ health twice. 
It’s a wonder he didn’t expire on the spot.

Mr Darcy walked through a lake so Mr Knightley could run several miles to his home and have a panic attack on the floor

jane austen’s pride and prejudice (1813) has many great moments that i’d gladly make thousands of posts analyzing but i just love the “accomplished woman” scene SO much. like you could get rid of the rest of the book and be left with that scene and you would still have the thesis of the book laid out pretty nicely for you. as he lists the characteristics an accomplished woman has, darcy actually means to pay elizabeth a compliment, since he clearly holds her in high regard and would probably include her in his list of accomplished women, but she interprets it as both an insult and his ego coming through. their respective prejudices blind one to the other’s true intent and understanding in what is essentially a summary of the book’s entire point and it’s such a big chef’s kiss from me!!! in this essay i will—

I’m rereading P&P and just- The thought of Fitzwilliam Darcy listening in absolute petrified horror and mortification while Lady Catherine expounds on Elizabeth’s impertinence when she so condescendingly went to speak to her about the impossiblity of her marrying her nephew. And then having her indignantly quote that upon being told that she would be despised by everyone connected to him Elizabeth’s answer was that “the wife of Mr. Darcy must have such extraordinary sources of happiness necessarily attached to her situation, that she could, upon the whole, have no cause to repine.”
Darcy just staring at his aunt, who probably takes this as shocked indignation, while he tries to start believing that Elizabeth ‘I had not known you a month before I felt that you were the last man in the world whom I could ever be prevailed on to marry’ Bennet said those words, about him, to his aunt’s face
I think I need to lie down

“I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading! How much sooner one tires of any thing than of a book! -- When I have a house of my own, I shall be miserable if I have not an excellent library.” ― Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice

after that last post suddenly the idea of being in the same room as darcy when he realises that he’s now related to mr collins is just the funniest thing.
mr collins: i suppose it would be no very great conjecture to say that we are now cousins, mr darcy? :) mr darcy:
