AU The Doctor is traveling when he meets the spirited Elizabeth Bennet, and it doesn’t take much time for the two of them to become friends. Before too long, Elizabeth is accompanying The Doctor through space and time, getting into a lot of trouble, and doing lots and lots of running.
"So, where would you like to go first?"
i love this moment because when the butler walks in darcy’s all oh it’s just the butler announcing we’ve run out of the good butter and returns to his paper i like to think it’s the regency era equivalent of the financial review or the wall street journal but as soon as he hears miss elizabeth.. his head jerks up and BOOM we know he’s got it bad. and caroline. poor caroline. i constantly dismiss caroline as a horrible jealous snob but really, i feel for her in this scene because she’s just like WHAT IS HAPPENING NUUUUUUUUUUU darcy what are you doing loving on this peasant girl look at moi darciiiii look at moi but no. darcy’s lost in elizabeth’s fine eyes and she ain’t even in the room yet
#you know this some real shit cause if you’re in the rain for like five minutes in jane austen you get all sick #and have to be ‘bedridden’ and ‘fussed over’ #so he went out after her in the regency equivalent of a shootout just to be like #’I LOVE YOU BUT YOUR FAMILY IS POOR AND EMBARRASSING’
“My dear Jane!" exclaimed Elizabeth, "you are too good. Your sweetness and disinterestedness are really angelic”.
I cannot fix on the hour, or the spot, or the look, or the words, which laid the foundation. It is too long ago. I was in the middle before I knew that I had begun.
