Summary: "Pride goeth before destruction". She had grown up with those words tempering her every action, but it would be many years before they began to make sense.

Notes: Pride and Prejudice is great source for adaptation and I love the writer attention to historical and language detail to make this crossover work extremely well.

I love Brienne is playing the part of Elizabeth Bennet, she is still like herself making it more believable that Hyle Hunt can trick Brienne with false sincerity and that she still doesn't know her true feelings for Jaime. Jaime as Mr. Darcy was done brilliantly and that he didn't deny his 'sins' that maybe a problem for Brienne the further we get into the story.

I love how much Arya, Sansa, and the other ladies in canon are feature in this story.
