    Summary

    He was happy for her. Really, he was.

    Or, an encounter with a very wise Lady causes Colin to rethink his feelings on Penelope's upcoming engagement. But is it too late for our boy Colin to fix the mess he's made and get the girl?

    This is how I imagine the S3 Polin love confession.

    Summary

    Colin panics as his friends finally start to question his friendship with Penelope. Chaos ensues.

    This starts with the garden scene from Colin's POV, which can be read as a one-shot, but I plan to expand it into a Season 3 plot.

    Summary

    Yet another addition to the world of Season 3 speculation! This will definitely follow show canon more than book canon, with some references to the book along the way.
    What will it take for Colin to finally realize what's been in front of him all this time?

    Work Title comes from "Starlings" by Elbow, one of my favorite Polin songs and one of the best songs ever, generally speaking.

    Summary

    Inspired by a tumblr post by thekatebridgerton, who speculated season 3 could go into a "She's All That" direction.

    After the disastrous events of season 2, Penelope Featherington is dreading her third season on the marriage mart. One of her best friends is mad at her and she's mad at her other best friend. More alone than ever, Penelope doesn't expect to receive help in the form of an opinionated dowager countess.

    During a disagreement with the queen over her chosen diamond, Lady Danbury makes a bet with her that she can transform even the ugliest of ducklings into a swan. Unlike everyone else in the Ton, she can see a spark of potential in the youngest Featherington girl. She just needs a proper mentor.

    While Penelope is flattered by Lady Danbury's faith in her, the observant old woman may just be the greatest risk to her biggest secret. Stepping into the limelight for the first time as herself, Penelope has much to contend with: winning her best friend back, interested suitors, the return of a certain heartbreaking Bridgerton, and, of course, the eyes of the Queen of England who wants her to fail in two different ways.

    Summary

    Now that we know the plot line for season three of Bridgerton, I thought I'd take a stab at writing about what could happen this season.

    In order to make up for his horrible words against his friend Penelope, Colin Bridgerton promises to help her find a husband. This however, backfires tremendously on him which if we're honest, he deserves.

    Bridgerton meets The Duff meets She's All That meets He's Just Not That Into You.

    Summary

    Dearest Readers, as you might remember, I do not silence easily.

    It is the beginning of the 1815 social season, those of the Ton are returning from their lush country houses, and that means a new and improved Lady Whistledown column. I'm sure we are all very excited to pick up where we left off last season. I have even heard through the grapevine that one wandering traveller shall grace us with his charming presence for the entire season. Now wouldn't that be a lovely treat, gentle reader?

    Can Mr. Colin Bridgerton handle the entirety of a London season? Perhaps he will simply disappear, off on another adventure before the season can reach its exciting climax. Pardon me, my dearest readers, or is it that he simply runs as fast as his legs can carry him from responsibility? Time will tell, and I will reveal all. For you can always trust me to report the very best of secrets. Secrets about all of you, but rest assured, there is one secret I will never divulge and that is the identity of this author.

    Do your worst, London.

    Summary

Even the parties Benedict used to enjoy have dried up, and the reason why sends him on a downward spiral wondering who Benedict Bridgerton is.

    Summary

    Colin felt his stomach drop.

    “Penelope,” he croaked out. “I was simply joking – I-I mean to say, it was nothing but gentlemen teasing each other-“

    “And yet you thought it appropriate to condemn me to an unmarriageable status.” She continued harshly, mouth twisting up into a sneer. “You thought it acceptable that a man in your position, a part of the most influential family amongst the ton, should declare a young woman so unworthy of marriage that the thought itself was simply amusing. That to ensure that no bachelor would dare to be seen pursuing me and therefore sentence me to a life of a spinster. That is what you thought it fair to do.”

    ******
    Somehow, Colin has seriously, completely, messed up.

    His best friend, his only real friend, is furious with him and he doesn't know how to fix this. How can you undo the kind of mistake he had made? How can you redeem yourself to a woman like Penelope Featherington? How can you tell her that you might actually love her instead?

    Colin had a feeling this was not going to be easy.
