      Short and sweetI remember reading this story at a fanfiction site before, and at the time I wasn't big on the modern P&P stories, but this one struck me and I truly enjoyed it. I loved having little Georgiana bring Elizabeth and Darcy together, she was so adorable. The only thing I would say against this story was that it was too short. Otherwise I would recommend this to all JAFFers.

      Swayed ImpressionsEnjoyed this modern variation of Pride and Prejudice. Regardless of what variation I read, thankfully Darcy is Darcy. In the same vein, Wickham is always scum, the bottom feeder in a fish tank! Lydia was just a foolish young girl looking to be loved. Many of the other characters were not who they were in Jane Austen's original which was shocking. The story of Georgiana's birth was a surprise as well as a shock. Thank goodness Lizzy got over her prejudice before ruining a good t [...]

      This story's premise had a lot of promise but it fell short. A modern take-off of P&P the author used the relationship between Darcy and Wickham to set up Elizabeth's opinion of a soon-to-be base commander. However, we read of that swaying of her impression more as an incident in the past. Mr. Bennet is a Major but Fanny has left him for Charlotte Lucas's father and C. is no longer friends with Elizabeth. The only sister still in the household is Lydia and she does present some problems as h [...]

      This is one of my favorite modern Pride and Prejudice fan-fiction stories. Not only does it bring Austen's most beloved characters into to 21st Century, but it is also a military setting. Being from a military family, I enjoy having stories that are part of a world that I know. More of a novella than a novel, Swayed Impressions is a convenient story to read when not a lot of time is available. For those who like to read books rather than ebooks, it is small enough to keep in your purse or backpa [...]

      Lizzy is the daughter of a military officer and Darcy is the base commander. The tension is there but resolves pretty quickly and without much drama. The number of daughters is reduced. Overall, an ok adaptation with some steam.

      I changed my rating from 2 stars to 1 star after the second reading. This should not have been published. If I had only read it online on some forum I would have been a little bit more forgiving, but I really wish I hadn't spend money on this. Both Lizzy and her dad are judgmental people, then she dates Darcy while kind of believing he's an ***, I think, because on the day he wants to propose she gets mad for a really stupid reason and then out of the blue accuses him of a lot of bad things. Rea [...]
