Ok, I’m totally in love with the early Netherfield tweets. Not only have they convinced me that Darcy had feelings for Caroline, they also show contrast to who Darcy is in most of the videos we see him in. As viewers, we only get to see post-revelation Darcy (and angry Darcy for like 3 minutes) but through these, we can see he really was as snobby and standoffish as Lizzie made him out to be. And you can also see him start to fall for her, and Caroline noticing and not liking it one bit. Great stuff!

EDIT: :O  That’s a lot of notes! Wow, I did not expect that. It’s great that so many people cared enough to write something, even if it didn’t agree with me. I can see where everyone is coming from,you guys are brilliant. Of course I think Lizzie’s portrayal of Darcy is exaggerated, I guess I had bad word choice there. But he wasn’t always charming and nice to her, or to people he didn’t respect in general. But really, I’m so honored (uck pepsi) that people were inspired enough to respond so thoughtfully and in depth to this. You’re all amazing!
