in consequence of the missive, A case against Darcy, penned by Jeanine
] Elizabeth went out of her way to find a case to dislike Darcy almost at all costs -
"At all costs?" Can you give specific examples? Even immediately after he insults her, she takes it well enough to tell the story with great spirit among her friends, because she takes delight in the ridiculous. That doesn't sound like someone trying to dislike someone else "at all costs."
] she knew where he was and most of the time what his expressions were.
Again, the narrator tells us she was "perfectly unaware" of what was going on with Darcy at one particular social event.
] She cared enough about his opinion of her to be embarrassed for her family.
She cared about his opinion because it could damage Jane's chances with Bingley. She told her mother as much, and there is no evidence of any other motive.
