Ultimate Swoon Off: Champion Announced and Swooned Over

And now, the moment you've all been waiting for.  I have to say, I was expecting a little bit more of a battle.  I mean, I didn't want to have to cast the tie-breaking vote, but I thought it was going to come down to that.  But in the end, there was a very clear winner (though I think, in this battle, everyone's a winner...), and the dreamiest, hunkiest, swoonworthiest victor is...



Mr Darcy!
Like you didn't know this was how it was going to end.  Wentworth put up a good fight, but in the end, it seems not even a (delicious) man in uniform could take down Mr D.

And now for the victory lap...

You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you...
I have been meditating on the very great pleasure which a pair of fine eyes in the face of a pretty woman can bestow.

...it is many months since I have considered her as one of the handsomest women of my acquaintance.

You showed me how insufficient were all my pretensions to please a woman worthy of being pleased.
My affections and wishes are unchanged, but one word from you will silence me on this subject for ever...

And there you have it ladies.

  1. I didn't vote since I'm new to Jane, and Darcy is the only swoonworthy Austen man I've come across XD I'm not quite in love with him yet, but I expect by the time I finish P&P I will be. I've definitely warmed up to him :)
    I'm going to go stare at those pictures some more now.

  2. Fetch my smelling salts!

    Really, Darcy should've done the gentlemanly thing and sat out so the rest of the guys could duke it out! Lol

  3. Well, I'll let you all fight over Darcy and keep Wentworth to myself. LOL

    I do love Darcy, though!

  4. *happy sigh* I knew from the start Darcy would win. How could he not?! I feel like reading P&P again.

  5. *looking over at my entire shelf of Darcy-related books* Hmm, which one should I read and swoon over next? Great pics, especially the one with the wet shirt. :D

  6. Oh, well. That just means us Wentworth girls don't have to share as much. ;-)

  7. *sigh* Oh my. Those pics... *swoon*

    I was too busy for most of June to take part in the swoon-off, but there was never a doubt in my mind how it would end. Darcy vs Wentworth, with the victory going to the man from Derbyshire.

    Why are all the best men fictional?

  8. I'm so glad my favorite won. I love Mr. Darcy!

  9. I think I missed this vote somehow but glad to hear M. Darcy won. He's my fave!

  10. so I'm tardy to this party, but I just wanted to say that Colin Firth is the ONLY Darcy for me. *falls into a southern bell faint* He's so hot (and let's not forget he's been Darcy twice if we count Bridget Jones (which I do))

    I also love Bingly because he's kind of goofy AND rich. Gotta love that happy meal.


Tell me all your thoughts.
Let's be best friends.
