Pride and Prejudice as a modern tale of music & love.

Elizabeth Bennet (Gugu Mbatha-Raw) is an aspiring songwriter. She spends most of her days writing songs, much to her sisters’ amusement. Jane (Lupita Nyong’o) is happy being a quiet accountant, but Lydia (Jessica Sula) dreams of stardom, of singing the songs her sister only wants to write. 

One day, the Bennet sisters are invited to an exhibition for aspiring musicians, attended by some of music’s elite. Most notably is Fitzwilliam Darcy (Oscar Isaac), the intense singer-songwriter who criticizes one of Elizabeth’s songs without realizing she’s behind him. Jane meets Bingley (Ruth Negga), Darcy’s beautiful and kind agent. The sisters also meet George Wickham (Scott Michael Foster), the infamous pop star.

Elizabeth finally finds a hit song when she writes the song “Proud” about the interaction with Darcy, which becomes a YouTube sensation when Lydia performs it for her vlog. As their lives become more intertwined, Darcy becomes suspicious of Jane’s affections for his agent. As Jane and Bingley fall apart, his interest in Elizabeth grows. He writes a song for Elizabeth called “Ardently”, which confesses his attraction for her at the same time as belittling her station as an amateur, her stardom-seeking sister, and his own reservations about her. 

Elizabeth is not amused.

The two continue to circle each other as Elizabeth is signed as a songwriter by his label, Pemberley, and they begin to work on writing songs together. Things are interrupted, however, when they discover that Wickham has been manipulating Lydia with promises of the spotlight.

Story Title: What Would Elizabeth Bennet Do?

What Would Elizabeth Bennet Do?

Jane Foster is expecting.  She’s cooking up a baby that promises to be the next brilliant mind on Midgard, already enrolled in Harvard at seven months gestation.  Oh yeah, and the baby is the future ruler of Asgard too, but that’s secondary.

Not much is making the heavily pregnant astrophysicist happy these days, so when Thor and the Warriors Three see her squeal and laugh and delight in watching a public marriage proposal, they cook up a scheme to keep Jane happy for the duration of her pregnancy.  

Now, Darcy doesn’t know why every man she comes into contact with seems to fall immediately in love with her and propose, but it’s getting to be very very annoying.  Johnny Storm was tempting.  Clint Barton was ridiculous.   The not quite recovered Bucky Barnes was terrifying (if only because Natasha was also in the room, smirking at her reaction).  

And then there is Steve.  And Darcy may or may not want to say yes to his proposal.

Ladies of the MCU + TV Tropes - Action Survivor  (guest starring Bobbi Morse as Action girl)

The Action Survivor is an Innocent Bystander in dangerous circumstances. He She won’t so much get The Call as be pinned by a telephone pole, thus trapping him her in an adventure that a more qualified Action Hero would have trouble sorting out.

Note that he’s she’s not just good at “merely” surviving the adventure like a mangled heap of bones, but is quite capable of surviving mostly unharmed while somehow managing to delay or disrupt the Evil Plan enough to foil the bad guy. In fact, said villain will likely be blindsided by their involvement, because they planned for everything except this Spanner in the Works.

MCU Ladies + TV Tropes - Science Hero

Oh no! The city is in danger! This looks like a job… For Science! A hero who uses science, technology and/or super-science to save the day. A staple of science fiction and an expression of the faith that science will save us rather than doom us.
