Boys in my high school literature class: “Jane Austen books are just love stories.” No. Jane Austen books are about powerless women, in utterly sexist, hideous times, trying to negotiate their way around class politics and hopefully ending up married to a man they, actually, you know, LOVE.
UMFB&MHA basically occupies my thoughts every waking moment, lol! All day today I was thinking about a Pride & Prejudice AU of this AU, poor Victor is such a Darcy in how Yuuri misunderstood him! & going to Pemberly was similar to Lizzie with how Moscow was for Yuuri, getting to see the real, more domestic side of people they formed opinions of while the other person is hardcore pining, lol. Basically I love ur fic an insane amount & spent hours thinking abt this connection lol :)
