In reply to Cambridge- Darcy Info Sought posted by Genette on June 28, 1997 at 09:19:27
] I'm thinking about doing a fanfic which would take place when Darcy and Wickham were at Cambridge. Does anyone know how old they would have been? Is it like college age in the US now? Also, wasn't Wickhame actually a bit older than Darcy? Also, when in P&P2 Darcy walked in on Wickham with a girl, would that have been in quarters they shared? Any answers/input greatly appreciated...
I don't have any answers, but do have a few plot suggestions. I don't think they would have shared quarters, but Wickham might have used Darcy's room, or Darcy might have gone to Wickham's room. In the first case, Darcy could have forgotten something, or returned from an easy test, or had no class due to a sick professor. In the second case, perhaps Darcy was meeting Wickham as a show of friendship. That could have been before they became unfriendly, or the reason they became unfriendly. Or the relationship could have been strained, and Darcy was extending an olive branch.
Just a few suggestions and feel free to disregard them. ;-)
