i believe it is an honor to be a woman in love with mr. darcy. i couldn’t imagine living without an acknowledgment of him because he truly is everything i would ever want in a man.
but it is also a curse. i’ve subjected myself to endless films (pride and prejudice (3 verisons,) bride and prejudice, lost in austen) endless novels (miss austen’s herself, me and mr. darcy, austenland, pride and prejudice and zombies) made films in film school about him (glass half empty) remember his every quote (you’ve bewitched me body and soul) made sims characters, read comics, and even dreamt about him.
and it is a curse because he is a fictional person.
oh me. always falling in love with people who don’t exist….
