Outmatched: Characterizing a Crossover

Outmatched: Characterizing a Crossover

Writing JAFF involves a great deal of ‘what-if’ in rebuilding our beloved Austen stories.

I have had the concept for “Losing Lizzy” in my head (and occasionally in my dreams) for nearly three years; however, I continued to set the story aside because for it to work, our dear couple had to anticipate their vows. In truth, I am not one who necessarily likes when Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth… more goodness …

He uses people to serve his own ends, flirting with Emma, and patronising his father and step-mother. He is deceitful and duplicitous. Mr Knightley doesn’t like him and that counts for… more goodness …

Maria Bertram: No Symptom of a Softened Heart?

Maria Bertram: No Symptom of a Softened Heart?

I have always wondered why, when confronted by her father, Maria Bertram was not more forthcoming about her feelings for Henry Crawford, and her disdain of Mr. Rushworth. Sir Thomas was willing to allow her to break the engagement, but Maria was determined to go through with it, despite her attachment to Mr. Crawford. The… more goodness …
