I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading! How much sooner one tires of anything than of a book! When I have a house of my own, I shall be miserable if I have not an excellent library. 

Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice, 1811.

the handing down of statements, beliefs, legends, customs, information, etc., from generation to generation, esp. by word of mouth or by practice: a story that has come down to us by popular tradition.
This forum celebrates the characters from Jane Austen’s Stories, most especially Pride and Prejudice, in the tradition in which they were written.  
Whether you were beguiled by the 1995 BBC adaptation of Pride & Prejudice with Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle or bewitched, along with Mr. Darcy, in the 2005 movie starring Matthew Macfadyen and Keira Knightley, we are glad you have joined the thousands of fans that want to read more about them.
We welcome those, too,  who seek stories of this time period because you were entranced by Elizabeth  Cleghorn-Gaskell’s North and South  which was made into a BBC production with Richard Armitage or some of Jane’s other stories - Emma, Sense and Sensibility, Northanger Abbey, Mansfield Park or Persuasion. No matter your incentive for searching out these stories, we feel your pain.  After all, we are JAFF fanfiction readers too.  
You are welcome to read and comment on  stories by clicking on DarcyandLizzy.Com Forum under the “Stories Forum” on the top right and registering.
