I work in a homeschool consignment store where P&P is a very popular title. I had never read it, and my collegues were shocked. My boss loaned me 1995 and 2005 versions of P&P with the instruction to watch the 1995 version first.
One evening, I did not have five hours, so I chose the 2005 version... Probably watched it fourteen times in rapid succession. Then watched the 1995 version...then Emma, and Mansfield Park (Jonny Lee Miller), then branched out to all the other Austen movies, multiple versions of Jane Eyre, then fell in love with North & South.
Discovered published fan fiction and read a ton of that, and then, oh glory, online fan fiction! Read so many stories I thought I would start a blog reviewing them!
An idea for a Colonel Fitzwilliam/Charlotte pairing gripped me, and I started writing. Holy cow! THE most obsessive thing I have ever done. It is now consuming probably five to seven hours of my day. Now in beta stage, I hope to begin posting Tree of Life: Charlotte and the Colonel in fall 2013.
