February: Month of Love and Book Boyfriends - Day Seventeen: Mr. Darcy

Day 17! Today's book boyfriend is:

Mr. Darcy


Name/Book: Mr. Darcy from Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen


Height: Tall

Eyes: Light

Hair: Black

Physical Description/ First Appearance

"Mr. Darcy soon drew the attention of the room by his fine, tall person, handsome features, noble mien; and the report which was in general circulation within five minutes after his entrance, of his having ten thousand a year. The gentlemen pronounced him to be a fine figure of a man, the ladies declared he was much handsomer than Mr. Bingley, and he was looked at with great admiration for about half the evening, till his manners gave a disgust which turned the tide of his popularity; for he was discovered to be proud, to be above his company, and above being pleased; and not all his large estate in Derbyshire could then save him from having a most forbidding, disagreeable countenance, and being unworthy to be compared with his friend."


Elizabeth's spirit's soon rising to playfulness again, she wanted Mr. Darcy to account for his having ever fallen in love with her. 'How could you begin?' said she.
'I can comprehend your going on charmingly, when you had once made a beginning; but what could set you off in the first place?' 'I cannot fix on the hour, or the spot, or the look, or the words, which laid the foundation. It is too long ago. I was in the middle before I knew that I had begun.


You are too generous to trifle with me. If your feelings are still what they were last April, tell me so at once. My affections and wishes are unchanged; but one word from you will silence me on this subject for ever.

"You have bewitched me, body and soul."


I have faults enough, but they are not, I hope, of understanding. My temper I dare not vouch for. It is, I believe, too little yielding— certainly too little for the convenience of the world. I cannot forget the follies and vices of other so soon as I ought, nor their offenses against myself. My feelings are not puffed about with every attempt to move them. My temper would perhaps be called resentful. My good opinion once lost, is lost forever.”


In vain have I struggled. It will not do. My feelings will not be repressed. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you.

Why He's a Great Book Boyfriend:

Patch is a faleen angel. He's dark and mysterious. He's also witty and sarcastic. He always has a comeback ready and is great at creating sentences full of innuendo. It's obvious he loves Nora and wants to keep her safe.



So, whad do you think of Mr. Darcy? Do you think he is a good character or not?
