Why This Must Be Read: First comes marriage, then comes love. When a comedy of errors causes Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy to marry in order to avoid scandal they are forced to re-evaluate their first impressions of one another. Forced marriage is one of my favorite tropes, and the author does a wonderful job with it here.

Why This Must Be Read: Pride and Prejudice has inspired some pretty awesome AUs, and this one brings us a modern take on the story, with Darcy as an aloof Hollywood star and Elizabeth a professor at the local university. It's a fun, fast, and charming read that draws interesting parallels with the original work and has some surprisingly insightful things to say about celebrity culture and media at the same time.

Why This Must Be Read: This short story is utterly adorable - a missing scene of sorts after Lizzy and Darcy's engagement, it finds the newly engaged couple discussing what names they should call each other now that they are going to be married. It captures the flirty, teasing tone of the engagement chapter in the book just beautifully.

'Darcy, then,' she said, entertained at the idea of them deciding on her address by its degree of impertinence. 'If one cannot be impertinent to the Mister, it must be taken out.'

'Bingley uses Darcy,' said Darcy, now looking at her, with a smile--such a smile that she was just now getting used to recognize in his face. She had been, she mused, rather blind. 'He is rarely impertinent.'

Why This Must Be Read: [livejournal.com profile] thimble_kiss writes the best Viktor/Hermione fics in fandom, hands down. Her Viktor is a thing of beauty--complexity, subtlety, ambition, chivalry, compassion, and mischievousness, all wrapped up in a sexy, Bulgarian package that will make you swoon. She handles his accent with incredible skill; his dialogue has just enough stiltedness for verisimilitude, but it is never unreadable. And her prose. Dear god, her prose. It is out-of-this-world gorgeous. Aside from Viktor/Hermione, [livejournal.com profile] thimble_kiss writes a ton of HP rarepairs (her Hermione/Cormac fics have already been rec'd on this comm). And if you're a fan of Zacharias Smith, she is your girl. You cannot go wrong with this author. She'll make you sigh, swoon, squeal, and cry with every word she writes. Personal Favorites: "Winterwhere"; "Practical Magic" and its sequel, "Tiger By The Tail"; and "Friction Point"

Mods, I need a lot of new tags. You don't need one for every pairing, but a few important ones include Hermione Granger/Viktor Krum, Sakura Haruno/Kakashi Hatake, Elinor Dashwood/Edward Ferrars, Helena Bertinelli/Vic Sage and Dinah Lance/Bruce Wayne. Could I also get fandom tags for Emma and Justice League Unlimited? Sorry!

Fic Title: A Hit, a Very Palpable Hit
Author: Shemmelle

Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: AU, romance, fluff, mild angst
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Kitty Bennet so often gets lost in the shuffle over her other sisters and their epic (or in some cases, not so epic) romances, so it's always a thrill when an author makes an attempt to create a story for Kitty. In this case, Shemmelle created a wonderful, slightly to the right of canon, tale that puts Kitty at the center stage. The characters that are brought to light as well are also endearing and amusing, but it is Kitty who is given the chance to shine. The romance is written very well too, happening over time and with the occasional hurdle to overcome. A lovely epic.

Pairing: Elizabeth Bennet/Fizwilliam Darcy, Anne DeBourgh/Colonel Fizwilliam, Jane Bennet/Charles Bingley
Fic Title: A Singular Proposition
Author: Tanya
Rating/Warning(s): R for sexual situations
Genre: Romance, aganst, AU
Why This Must Be Read: This regency era AU begins on the premise that Mr. Bennett died prematurely, forcing poor sweet Jane to marry Mr. Collins, much for Lizzy’s indignation. While Elizabeth visits her unhappy but ever so optimistic sister, she meets Darcy and the Colonel and Anne DeBourgh at Rosings, and finds herself in the position of accepting the offer to become Georgiana’s companion, despite having recently overheard Darcy insulting her during a conversation with his cousin Anne. Soon, Darcy becomes aware of a stubborn attraction to miss Bennett, to the point he seriously considers taking her as a mistress, while an oblivious Elizabeth discovers new, softer sides of her employer.
If this plot still has not won you over, you should take in account the wonderful friendship that blossoms between Georgiana and Elizabeth, an unique, unexpectedly cunning Anne DeBourgh, and a splendid Conceited-Darcy voice.
And don’t fear for Jane, because she eventually gets her happy ending too.
I think this story might have benefited from a bit more historical accuracy, since, toward the end of the tale, its characters seem to display a bit too modern mindset, but everything’s so beautifully told that I can easily forgive this minor flaw.

Pairing: Jane Bennett/Charles Bingley
Fic Title: Bingley
Author: Jimmy
Rating/Warning(s): G
Genre: Romance
Why This Must Be Read: I’ve always thought that Jane and Bingley were underappreciated… while they lack the dranmatic streak of Darcy and Elizabeth, they have an appeal of theirs that should be adequately valued. This fic explains why. It’s P&P, through Charles Bingley’s eyes - a journey he starts as a naïve young man who trusts too much but matures along the way, learning to seek out only true sincerity in his relations and to be more self-assertive.
A more extended -and equally well done- take on the same theme is 'A Truth Universally Acknowledged' by Sabrina-Elizabeth-Ann, that has the advantage to focus more on comprimary characters as well. Here the link:

Fic Title: A Judge of Their Characters
Author: Lucrezia, Author’s site

Rating/Warning(s): R, M, canon character death, violence
Genre: Romance, mystery, adventure
WIP?: No, but there is a sequel.
Special rec: 5/31
Author’s Summary: August 1813. Fitzwilliam Darcy makes the acquaintance of Elizabeth Bennet, as she arrives in Derbyshire in a desperate search for her Aunt and Uncle Gardiner. She is trying to avert a family tragedy which, he soon learns, is linked to his own family's past in more ways than one. The risks, however, are far greater than either Darcy or Elizabeth might imagine.

Why This Must Be Read: This is an AU in the Pride and Prejudice universe. It takes our beloved characters and puts them into a murder-mystery. Lizzy is strong and capable, Darcy is still proud, but not as unapproachable as in the canon. Colonel Fitzwilliam makes an appearance and is delightful. It is extremely well-written and has a riveting murder mystery attached to it. I will warn you, Jane and Mr. Bennet are given rather different roles and are not as sympathetic as they are usually portrayed. There’s a sequel, too!

Fic Title: The Other Side of Pride and Prejudice
Author: Leareth
Link: http://www.pemberley.com/derby/leareth3.ospp1.html
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13 maybe? I'm not quite sure, but there's nothing explicit here. Also, this is a LONG fic.
Genre: Romance
WIP?: Complete

Why This Must Be Read: Basically, What You See Is What You Get, meaning we get to see the Pride and Prejudice story through the point of view of Mr. Darcy. The author makes a great job at imitating the style of the original novel, while filling the gaps on Mr. Darcy's background and feelings as they evolve. The fic relies heavily on the BBC series as well as the novel,  but I think it remains quite accessible to those who had read only the novel or seen the latest movie adaptation.

For me, this remains one of the greatest Pride and Prejudice fics I've ever read: the fluff factor, the attention to detail, the careful description of the characters and the obvious commitment of the author to adapt the whole story makes it a 100% must read. :)

Why This Must Be Read: "An alternative view of might have happened in the weeks leading up to Darcy and Elizabeth's marriage." A truly well written lead up to Elizabeth and Darcy's wedding, and a look into subsequent lives. For all those who just want a little canon fluff. :D I would go and describe the realistic voices and lovely length of the fic, but, I'll leave you with "guilty pleasure that's actually quite good".

Why This Must Be Read: The familiar premise of "If Darcy had brought Georgiana to Rosings with him" is given one of its best treatments here. This is a long time favorite of mine because of the care put into Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy slowly realizing how they've misjudged each other based on little evidence, and the depth of both Georgiana's character and the friendship that develops between Georgiana and Elizabeth.

Why This Must Be Read: What would've happened if Darcy and Liz were trapped together in the Netherfield library? This story is absolutely lovely and the interaction between the two are spot-on; it really makes you believe this could've been a deleted scene. Darcy is trying to keep himself in check and fight his attraction to Elizabeth (cause it's so improper!) but he's obviously failing miserably.

Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: Romance, Drama
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read: This is a great follow up to Pride and Prejudice that not only gives attention to a great secondary character, but also stays true to the world and characters created by Austen. This fic is magic in the way it presents the slow awakening of Anne de Bourgh as she steps outside Rosings Park and realizes that the world is not quite as Lady Catherine has painted it. I like that Anne makes mistakes and misjudges and slowly wakes to her own prejudices and flaws, even as she discovers the world and her own capabilities and value. She's petulant and jealous at times, but also brave and kind and willing to correct herself--a true fleshed out character. You'll be cheering for her and wishing for her happy ending. The supporting cast is varied and textured, and there are some lovely cameos by some familiar characters. Enjoy!
