pride and prejudice 200

“so this is how liberty dies ... with aramis hanging from the ledge of a married woman’s window”

Summary: Truly, Constance thinks, it must be a unique sight: four idiots dangling out a bedroom window in Louis de Bourbon’s perfectly nice back garden, breaking the law. 

Treville’s going to kill them when he finds out.

THE TITLE IS THE BEST THING I’VE ACCOMPLISHED IN MY WHOLE CAREER SHOUTOUT TO @emilybrontay FOR HER HELP anyways this was done in an effort to feel creative whilst simultaneously writing a really dry essay on ethics. it’s definitely part of @hansolosbutt‘s modern detective (brooklyn nine nine) au. hopefully i’ve given enough context in the fic for it to actually make sense, but at this point, who KNOWS. reviews are love and sunshine and excellently placed star wars references. speaking of, it is universally acknowledged fact that modern au anne has watched pride and prejudice over 200 times and also wants to be padme amidala when she grows up.

Constance Baudin prides herself on being good at her job.

At least, that’s what she told Deputy Commissioner Richelieu in the aftermath of the attempted murder two weeks ago. The Deputy Commissioner had said, “I must confess I was shocked to hear the matter was dealt with so gracefully, Detective,” and Constance, who perhaps had been experiencing one of Aramis’s severe bouts of utter lack of self-preservation, had said, “I pride myself on being good at my job, sir,” in front of Captain Treville, the bloke from Major Crimes, and someone who she thinks might have been the DA’s assistant.

Thank God Richelieu has what Porthos calls a right perverted sense of humor under that mustache of his, else Constance might’ve lost her job right there for giving attitude to the Deputy Bloody Commissioner.

“How can you possibly know that? You have too much faith in people, Scott,” Stiles said accusatorily with his arms crossed indignantly. Scott just smiled.

“And you don’t have enough faith in people.”

New neighbors moved in the big house at the end of the street and Scott has a little something for one of them. On the contrary, Stiles got a little bit of hatred for one of them.
All that and Scott getting bitten and turned into a werewolf the night after they met said neighbors for the first time. And, of course, Stiles is the one with enough head on his shoulders to actually deal with all of it and come to the right conclusions.

AU where the characters of Teen Wolf are the characters from Pride and Prejudice.  Stiles is Elizabeth, Derek is Darcy, Scott is Bingley, Kira is Jane, and Peter is Lady Catherine.  :D  So basically, just enjoy and let your teen fantasies run wild!

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single alpha in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a mate.  

Whether or not Derek Hale felt that way was hardly a concern to the neighborhood — the very fact of his arrival was enough that the surrounding families seemed to consider him the rightful property of one or another of their eligible sons and daughters.  That was, of course, before they met the man.

“It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single werewolf in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a mate.”

A Sterek (and Scisaac) based parody of Jane Austen’s “Pride and Prejudice”. Written in the voice of Jane Austen, not the voice of Teen Wolf, and following the original text very closely. Bascially names and pronouns are changed, and there is the normal strategic product placement associated withTeen Wolf, but otherwise this is Austen. It is remarkable how little the characters have to change to fit with the Austen novel - although Lydia Martin and Melissa McCall get a bit of a rough deal in the translation. Scott, Isaac, Stiles and Derek match the character types very well, however - personality traits have not changed that much over the centuries. January 2013 marks the 200 year anniversary of the publication of Pride and Prejudice.

Today marks the 197th anniversary of beloved English novelist Jane Austen’s death. Despite the fact she (unfortunately) didn’t live to see 238, her legacy marches on. Here’s 5 Reasons Why You Should Still Care About Jane Austen:

1. Traveling across the pond anytime in the next two years? Austen ’s face will be featured on the new  £10 note, which will go into circulation in 2017. (Read More

2. Speaking of her face (and money) … in December of last year, Sotheby’s sold a watercolor portrait of Ms. Austen (based on a sketch by her sister, Cassandra) to a private art collector for £164,500 (around $270,000). (Read More).

3. Kelly Clarkson (yeah, that Kelly Clarkson) brought a ring once owned by Austen, but couldn’t leave the country with it because of a temporary export ban placed on the piece of jewelry in the hopes that the national artifact would stay at Austen’s original home in England. It did

4. Researchers are using Austen’s work in contemporary neuroscience to find out how our brains work on literature. (Read More)

5. While we’re on the subject of Austen’s anniversaries, January of last year marked 200 years since her most acclaimed novel, Pride and Prejudice. (Read More)

What’s Next for Jane?

  • The complete works of Jane Austen are being re-imagined for a new generation. Six well-known authors are re-penning each of Austen’s books for a new generation of romance readers.
  • @JaneAusten? Mallory Ortberg's Texts From Jane Eyre, is also in the business of re-imagining some of Austen’s literature, but this time through text messages. 
In Defense of Mr. Collins.

I am rewatching Pride & Prejudice (2004) for the 10000th time and it occurs to me that Mr. Collins gets a bad wrap.

Think about it. He knows that he is going to inherit a distant cousins property and that the distant cousin has 5 unwed daughters, who he will have to unseat when he inherits the land. So, he travels far, leaving his esteemed patroness behind, in order to marry one of them. 

That is not a dick move. It’s actually a great thing for him to do. Keep it in the family. Make it so that her family would still have a place and that she could hold on to her childhood home.

It’s not his fault he’s boring and stupid and ridiculous. He’s just a guy. He’s no Darcy, but we’ve kind of made fun of a not so bad dude, for like 200 years. Literally.

so on some post i saw the idea for a “you slipped on a patch of ice and i happened to be walking behind you and you fell into my arms wow you’re really attractive au” and like so hollstein happened

In retrospect you probably shouldn’t have been running on a day where they had sent out emails to every student about the inclement weather and warned about patches of ice around campus. But you had woken up incredibly late and even after knowing that you were late, getting out of bed had been a struggle which had almost proven to be too much. So yes, you were running. Or at least you wererunning until suddenly your feet slid out from under you and you found yourself flying through the air. You brace yourself for the impact of slamming your head on the pavement, but the impact never comes.
