A lot of truths have been universally acknowledged. A Pride and Prejudice AU.
Excessively Long Authors' Notes: This fic began as rambling in a thread on zarah5's (when it was still zarah5) way back in July. It mostly a gleeful way to imagine Ryan as the Best Mr Darcy Ever – and then it kind of exploded on us, until you get it here today (or, well, starting today:
I guess at this point we'll also be lame and thank each other: because our brains will never be the same again.
The story itself belongs to Jane Austen and the boys belong to themselves and possibly Zack, so we disclaim etc. We haven't attempted to imitate Austen's style very much at all, because we’re not that good, and you will notice certain discrepancies in the social mannerisms and history of the day: for this we ask that you suspend your disbelief.
And now you can stop pretending to be interested in these ramblings, and we hope very much that you enjoy reading as much as we did writing.
