A Smattering of Conversation

 Exactly what it sounds like! A random offering of single lines from a few characters, all taken from Mr. and Mrs. Fitzwilliam Darcy ~ Two Shall Become One. Read and enjoy!

Fitzwilliam Darcy: “Yet, at the same time, it hardened my resolve. If I could not find what I wanted, then I would not marry at all. I am a profoundly obstinate man, my love, if you have not realized that already! Once I set a course, I am loyal to it. If I was so fortunate and blessed to find love, then I would be devoted, faithful, and enduringly thankful until the day I died.” …. “My love, I shall likely chastise myself later for confessing this; however, I would doubtless grant you anything within my capacity to give, such is your power over me.” …. “I do not know! Nor does it matter, Richard! He has accosted her, twice now, and she almost died! I insist on justice!” …. “If Samuel knew how often my clothes have fallen to the floor in the past days, he would likely resign his post.” …. “Ah, ‘Fitzwilliam’ is it? I suppose that dictates the necessity for my undivided attention.” …. “Oh Lord, have mercy; why did I ever marry such a meddlesome pest?”Elizabeth Darcy:“Perfectly adequate, Mr. Darcy, I daresay. Unfortunately, so much remains covered that I cannot in truth render a full accounting. Perhaps we can remedy this oversight on your part posthaste so I can answer your query with total knowledge.” …. “Really William, you are far too trusting! What if I decide to choose Scottish plaids or Oriental motifs?” …. “Mr. Darcy, I will not apologize for communicating openly with you! Nor will I hide my love for you. We have done far too much of both, nearly losing each other in our stupidity, misconceptions, and pride.” …. “Enchanting view, Mr. Darcy. Quite rejuvenating!” …. “No more than I, dearest, for I shall be attended by the prime bull of Derbyshire! How fortunate am I?”

Richard Fitzwilliam: “He, braggart, was twelve with a horse larger than mine and cleared the creek without hesitation! Very well, I concede. You are the superior horseman. I, on the other hand, excel at dancing and witty conversation.” …. “Mrs. Darcy, if I may be so bold, you are radiant. Shocked I am, to tell the truth. Personally I thought you would be weary of this old codger by now!” …. “Fortunate day for you, Darcy. Your wife possesses the luck of the Irish to stumble across a Ferrier in Matlock! Now I am truly jealous of you.” …. “Alright, I concede. I fear you must submit to my carrying you, cousin. I am not brave enough to face the wrath of two Darcys in one morning.”

Stephen Lathrop: “Darcy often played at Cambridge and is quite good, although he abhors performing for crowds. Except for that one time, remember, Darcy?” …. “I shall save you, Colonel. Darcy has not seen me for many months so would not likely horsewhip me.”

Georgiana Darcy: “My brother has always hovered in this manner. I do believe nothing frightens him other than the thought of someone he loves being hurt. He still refuses to allow me to take my horse out without a groom shadowing me even though I have been riding since I was five!” …. “My brother is glowing, Elizabeth, and so are you. I cannot convey in words how delighted I am for you both.” …. “Nothing ever slips your mind, brother. I have no fears.”

Mrs. Reynolds: “Listen to me! We must attend to Mrs. Darcy. We cannot afford to have another patient on our hands! Do you understand? Stay here and put your head between your legs.” …. “The staff awaits your inspection, Mr. Darcy.” …. “The Darcys are dear to me, as is Pemberley. I flatter myself that I know Mr. Darcy well, or at least as well as a servant can ever know one’s master. His joy since his marriage to you, Mrs. Darcy, is beyond anything I have ever witnessed from him. That fact alone would induce me to welcome you and, frankly, endure any hardship on my part in the process. However, this has not been the case. If I may be so bold, I sincerely like you. You are intelligent, lively, honorable, and most importantly, you love Mr. Darcy and Pemberley. I am discovering that these discussions and educational opportunities with you are a source of pleasure to me. Therefore, the thanks are entirely mine, Mistress.”

  5. I totally agree with Vee; these lines say so much about each and every person. And thanks for the Youtube videos. I think it´s time to see the complete movie once again! The perfect thing to do: watch this wonderful movie on a cold winterday with lots of snow. And dream of Pemberley in the snow…

    Good old Lizzy with her spunk!! They’re so good together!
    I love Richard such a brotherly companion for Darcy and funny to boot!
    Wonderful new characters you create that fit into the story so perfectly.
    Georgiana is sweet, serene and I love the way her character develops overall.
    Mrs Reynolds a staid character which you keep true in my opinion, the fierce motherly intinct is brillaint.

    These random passages are wonderful Sharon an excellent reminder of the richness of your storyline. LOVE IT ALL!
