Hello cassie, my lovely friend... I'm gonna need those Fitz headcanons you mentioned. Please?
So, in the original Pride and Prejudice, Colonel Fitzwilliam is the only person other than Darcy and Wickham who know the whole of the situation with Georgiana. So, in all fairness, this should translate to LBD.
Fitz was Darcy’s roommate in college, randomly assigned, but they hit it off because Fitz knows how to see a good person under supreme awkwardness and he can get along with just about anyone.
Fitz was with Darcy when Darcy got the news about his parents’ accident. Fitz insisted on driving Darcy back home because he didn’t think Darcy should have to face that alone. Darcy had to deal with things at the hospital, so he sent Fitz to pick up Gigi from school and bring her to the hospital.
Gigi impressed Fitz on that drive, with her fire and her passion how well she held herself together but also how she refused to get in the car and go with him until he told her the truth and stopped trying to protect her on her brother’s orders.
When their parents were declared dead, Fitz stood guard outside the hospital room, holding lawyers and doctors at bay so the siblings could grieve. He was an official member of the family after that.
When everything went down with George, he blamed himself. He’d gotten caught up in work and in his own life and he’d fallen out of touch with Gigi, and maybe if he hadn’t, he’d have seen it happening. Darcy called him, the day George broke Gigi’s heart, the day she shouted hateful things at him. She never wanted to see him again, she said, but Darcy needed someone to look after her. Fitz stepped up.
When he first came through the door with a lasagna to make sure Gigi was eating something, she threw a vase at his head because she thought he was Darcy. Fitz gave her a talking to of no small proportion.
That’s when they got close, really close, rather than just being part of each other’s lives because of Darcy. Gigi became the little sister Fitz never had, and he helped her to heal. He saw her lowest moments, saw her almost break, and he vowed that anyone who ever hurt her like that again would have to answer to him. Well, obviously to Darcy first, but then to Fitz, and Fitz wasn’t nearly as decorous.
Fitz may spend most of his time as an upbeat warm executive of fun, but mess with the people he loves, and he will end you. Period.
So for last couple of months, I have been working on fulfilling a dream of mine. vivvav (co-writer), squigglydigg (art director) and I have been developing a pilot for a cartoon show: Megaton Girl!
“Our hero, Connie Opland, is a normal human living in a world full of egotistical super hero celebrities, oddball super villains, and a tabloid super hero talk show called Olympus 365. But when Connie is gifted with superpowers of her own, she finds herself thrust into the fray. Together with her new friend, Laurel Fitz, and her manager, William Kirby, Connie takes on the mantle of Megaton Girl and fights to bring some dignity back to the title of ‘super hero.’”
We have a full pilot written, and our next big step is voice over (which begins recording this and next week). I will update on here about the project as frequently as I can, but for now, I hope to share this passion project with all of you soon!
