    Summary

    When the house in Camden Place has a delay in availability, Sir Walter and Elizabeth opt for a visit to his other Elliot nephew. The same Elliot and his Lady whose cottage near Dartford, Robert Ferrars spoke so highly of. This tale follows the train of consequences of two of Ms. Austen's more unlikeable characters finding a kindred spirit in each other. Many larger changes for our beloved favorites come from this one meeting.

    A crossover fiction covering characters from Persuasion, Sense and Sensibility, Mansfield Park, and Pride and Prejudice.

    Summary

    Erick Wentworth has always been a runner. Avoidance is his specialty. So, when he somehow finds himself back in Uppercross, thanks to his sister Sophie and her husband Adam, he's flummoxed. It's the one city he swore he would never visit again. The same city where he met Anne Ilao eight years ago.

    And so, he does what he does best. He runs. Away from the truth, at least.

    Erick promises himself that he's over it, pretends he doesn't know her, and acts as though their relationship all those years ago never happened.

    But, he finds that running away from their past isn't as easy as he thought.

     

    **This is a companion piece to the story A Sense of Self told from the point of view of Erick. Some of this probably won't make sense unless you've read that story, BUT I think that if you read this and are interested, you can also go back and read the original story afterward.

    Summary

    Anne Ilao has always put her family first. It's the Filipino American way. Her father and sister, Walter and Eliza, cared more about their friends. Her sister, Maria, cared too much about everything - but especially her in-laws. So, it has always been up to Anne to care about the family as a whole. It's what she promised her mom she would do, before she passed.

    The one time she considered refusing this job, letting her family fend for themselves, was about 8 years ago. The year she met Erick Wentworth. He left (she broke both of their hearts), but now he's back.

    Anne is forced to confront her past, the one she's been trying very hard to forget, and confront her present. Is this the life she wants? Or really - can she go after the life she wants?
