in consequence of the missive, Is Elizabeth a*gasp* gossip?, penned by Stacey GC
I think Elizabeth's reaction is a refreshing and very healthy one. Instead of brooding about Darcy's put-down, she deals with any hurt feelings by laughing at the incident (and don't forget, this funny story is not terribly flattering to Elizabeth, either!) I must admit, I have recently read several romances in a row where the heroine spends a lot of time crying about the way the hero treats her (assuming Darcy *is* the hero...). I say this newcomer made it perfectly clear that he was not happy in this particular community, couldn't care less if they were prejudiced against him, and deserved whatever additional disapproval he got.
