I quite enjoyed this, Jane Austen with a modern twist :D The sense of humour was fun, the odd clash between modern and Georgian in both the subjects and the writing was interesting (though at times the change in writing styles was a bit jarring, Womp Womp?) and overall this seemed quite fun in a Pride and Prejudice and Zombies kind of way :D

Hahaha, could be longer (Normally you're discouraged from publishing the same day you join, a good game takes time), but this was more interesting than most of the stuff posted in this section.

Punctuation and capitalization starts falling apart towards the end so I'd recommend taking this down a few minutes for a proofread and polish.

Expect possible complaints from those too uptight to get into the spirit of being taken off their father's hands. Also, there's a Jane Austen MMO, everjane.com this put me in mind of lol, might be something you'd enjoy.

It's a bit short, but I like the fact that there was no violence and makes people calm.

I just think that the other choice should also be wider. It's not all women who dreams rich and tall handsome men. There are also some who'd want to experience what it's like living with someone so opposite and yet so intriguing.

A cute, short, and quirky little story that brightened my day

Nice plot, a little bit too short.

While it is rather short, I've seen and read enough Austen works to appreciate the references in this piece. You have a lot of the phrases and conceits down pat, and the anachronisms are highly entertaining. I just wish there was more.

it's a charming little story but really very short
