Pride & Prejudice: An Awkward Proposal 

(( OOC: Here’s an old RP from forever ago that I never got around to putting into a thread… hurray for procrastination! XD hahaha.

Elizabeth Bennet played by Laina: @ohtheclevernessofme1972 ))

Darcy: *fidgets nervously* *sits down across from Lizzie* Miss Elizabeth. 

Darcy: These past months have been a torment. I came to Rosings with the single object of seeing you… I had to see you. 

*sighs in frustration* I have fought against my better judgment, my family’s expectations-

Darcy: *takes a deep breath* 

Lizzie: I don’t understand.

Darcy: Please do me the honor of accepting my hand.

Lizzie: Sir, I… 

Lizzie: … And I am very sorry to have caused you pain. 

Lizzie: Yes, sir.

Lizzie: No.

Lizzie: I’m sure that the feelings which, as you’ve told me have hindered your regard…

Darcy: Might I ask why, with so little endeavor at civility, I am thus repulsed?

Lizzie: Why, with so evident a design of insulting me…

Darcy: N-no, believe me, I didn’t mean-

Lizzie: If I was uncivil than that is some excuse, but I have other reasons… you know I have. 

Darcy: *bitterly* Thank you for explaining so fully. Perhaps these offenses might have been overlooked had not your pride been hurt by my honesty…

Lizzie: My pride?

Darcy: In admitting scruples about our relationship. 

Lizzie: And those are the words of a gentleman? From the first moment I met you, your arrogance and conceit, your selfish disdain for the feelings of others made me realize-

*silence* 

Darcy: *rises from his seat and makes his way to the door, grabbing his hat from the table* 

FIN

“Miss Bingley’s letter arrived, and put an end to doubt. The very first sentence conveyed the assurance of their being all settled in London for the winter, and concluded with her brother’s regret at not having had time to pay his respects to his friends in Hertfordshire before he left the country.

Hope was over, entirely over.”

~Pride and Prejudice, Chapter XXIV

  • Darcy:Well… when I’m with a girl I like, it’s hard for me to say anything cool, or, or witty. Or at all. I-I can usually make a few vowel sounds, and then I have to go away.
  • Bingley:It’s not that bad.
  • Darcy:No, i-it is. I think girls are more interested in a boy who can talk.
