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...
They probably would have gone up to Cambridge a little younger than nowadays - maybe 15 or 16. I think it most unlikely that Wickham and Darcy would have shared quarters - it wouls not have been done for D to share a room with the son of his father's steward. Perhaps Wickham used Darcy's (larger and better located) room for assignations! ;-)
