5. Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy by strangerkate 5. Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy by strangerkate
My Top 10 Favorite Couples, counting backwards: [link]

I love period dramas. So much so that when making this list I decided that I would need to limit it to one major period drama couple instead of listing them all. But, it was hard! There are so many great ones...

But, let's face it, it's Pride and Prejudice. It's the mother of all period dramas.

It was rather hard to draw Darcy here, I must admit, simply because he is THEE MR. DARCY. I know all about the Colin Firth/Matthew Mcfadyen wars, but, in the end he actually looks more like Richard Armitage here, I think. Yes. Very Thornton-esque.

Gyah, no! The world will not realize how gorgeous he is! (Le sigh.) Oh, well. I suppose he's having fun parading around with his long hair, big beard, and giant sword.

Oh, yay! This is beautiful! I love P&P, one of my favorite books ever! And Lizzy and Darcy are one of my OTP's as well.

I totally agree, aren't period dramas just the best? Anyway, love how you drew Lizzy and Darcy here! Nice choice to make them almost kissing but not quite. And I LOVE the detail you put into the clothes.

Re: The Firth/Macfadyen debate, I am totally, 100% on Team Firth on this one. No offense meant to MM, but I just thought Colin Firth was PERFECT in that role. (I also happen to just really, really love Colin Firth as an actor.) I also find it interesting that everyone always seems to overlook Laurence Olivier in these debates, even though he's LAURENCE FREAKIN' OLIVIER. As in, considered the greatest actor of ALL TIME by some people. Perhaps it's because his version of P&P took a lot of liberties with the story and simply wasn't very good? IDK.

Gotta say, although I love Colin Firth, I'm not a big fan of him as Darcy. He's just too Colin Firth-y for me, I guess. Who knows why?

*gasp* Sacrilege! How dare you?

LOL, I'm just kidding. For me, I think Colin Firth fit perfectly into the role, and it was sort of one of those roles you define an actor by, like Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly or something. For a lot of people, Audrey Hepburn is Holly Golightly and Holly Golightly is Audrey Hepburn. To me, it doesn't matter if Colin Firth was Colin Firth-y as Mr. Darcy, because Colin Firth IS Mr. Darcy, and Mr. Darcy is Colin Firth. That doesn't mean that I can't watch him in other roles and enjoy him, it just means that his performance in P&P is the one I associate the most strongly with him. I'm not explaining this at all well, so I hope you get what I'm trying to say.
