I've Heard It Said

10 days till Xmas so why not?

Blurb: In Austen's day, Darcy was the original bae. To the tune of the Christmas Carol, “I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day.”

I've Heard It Said


I've heard it said in Austen's day
That Darcy was the original bae.
And wild and sweet
The words repeat,
“I've ardently admired you!"


But time has passed. The day has come
That brooding glares are dull and dumb.
We want our leads
With studly deeds,
Not passively admiring you.


And so I thought, romance is dead;
“It's sex, and then more sex,” I said,
“For lust is strong
And mocks the song
Of ardently admiring you.”


Then pealed the forums long and loud:
“Don't be a prude. Don't act so proud.
Give what we stan
Write what a man
Who’s violently in love will do.”

// THE END //

I love the original song. The message is very soothing even (especially) when you are tired of the good fight and things are getting worse.

But I'll admit that I first read P&P when I was less than half my current age. And it took me -=years=- to realize that “he expressed himself on the occasion as sensibly and as warmly as a man violently in love can be supposed to do,” meant more than just speaking loudly and excitedly. SMH.
