circumstances and interfering family members seek to
keep them apart?
This was my NaNoWriMo 2010 story.
Please note that "A Promise to Remember" posted at some fan fiction forums
is similar, but not the same as the published version of the story.
While staying at Netherfield during Jane's illness, Elizabeth finds out about Mr. Darcy's "security blanket". When it comes into her possession, he "bear-naps" her "security bear". AHA July/August playground challenge. One-shot, Fluff (low angst), Rated Teen 4000 words
This is the original version.
The story is in the process of being completely re-written for publication.

Exactly what convinced Darcy to take Elizabeth’s reproofs to heart? Inspired by the song “Closet Chronicles” by Kansas. P&P, Regency, One-Shot, Rated Teen, High Angst. Please trust me! All is not what it seems. I promise there will not be a sad ending! 3500 words

This is in response to a challenge. We were given the title and a comic strip, and I came up with this. No time machine, but it does have time travel—well, sort of—and a few extra characters as well. I had no beta for this; sorry about the errors. 2200 words
An exhausted writer gets silly while writing a P&P Regency fan fiction story. Crossover with Star Trek...sort of. Silly Fluff, Everyone (I know - it is out of alphabetical order. This deserves to be last, lol.) 900 words
