The Part of Her Hair by scioscribe
Pride and Prejudice, Mary/OC. Her father packs off Mary to London to stay with Jane and Bingley where she'll hopefully find a husband or at the very least some friends. And she does indeed find one particular new friend in a fellow dedicated wallflower. // 10.5K, Mary POV, excellent pastiche of Austen's style with similar dust-dry humor, and appearances of most of the family. I'd shuffled this down the queue because of the OC, but she turned out to be fun and interesting. HEA!
Miss Gibson said, "In the spirit of truthful admission, Miss Bennet, I intend to spend some time devising the right question for you. If I may see you again?"

Why did that sound strange? But she always sounded strange to people herself. And it was a familiar kind of strangeness, as if it were something she had heard before, only not like this.

Mary, constrained by the principles of truth, could only admit that she would enjoy that very much.

A Marital Education by Yahtzee
Pride and Prejudice, Elizabeth/Darcy (main). "Darcy's impotent." When Elizabeth discovers that Darcy cannot perform his martial duties, she resolves to seek discreet assistance but receives the best advice from the most unexpected source. // To the point but really unappealing summary. As it turns out, surprisingly entertaining fic. Strictly IC, an extrovert married to an introvert, both dealing with frustration and a topic no one may speak about without circumspection, allusion, and misdirection, which inadvertently reveals a lot about others' relationships as well. As a result, it ranges from sad to periodically hilarious (e.g., Jane and Bingley, sui generis kinksters). HEA, sufficient smut.

I'll Write You Harmony in C by magneticwave
Austen, Pride and Prejudice/Mansfield Park, Modern AU. Mary Bennett/Henry Crawford (background other canon relationships). Mary, medical student and middle daughter of five, must find her balance among her overly complex sisters' lives, her own ambitions, her pining after her clinical supervisor, and her curious enemies-with-benefits relationship with posh classmate Henry. // 33K and worth it. Mary seems like a strange choice for a main P&P POV character, but it works: she's clever, snide, judgey, and a bit blind to nuance in her social justice warrior enthusiasms, but manages to be sympathetic all the same, and ultimately as devoted to her family as her sisters are. (Ha. When she loses it and begins smacking Lydia with her clipboard, it was all win.) There are cameos from other Austen works (including a lulzy genderswap) but the main crossover is the Mansfield Park situation transposed to Cambridge. It's all really clever and fun. HEA.

I Am Mr Darcy by ~leightonton
Austen, P&P, Darcy/(Elizabeth). Darcy can't stand that guy in the flannel shirt. LOL.

A Faithful Narrative by kalichan
Pride and Prejudice, Darcy/Wickham. Not a pairing I'd be interested in normally, so reading it was more a matter of What on earth? It's mainly trying to put a gloss of lover scorned getting his own back on everything Wickham did. So in terms of that, not bad!
