Goodbye Lizzie

Friends, I have sad news. Elizabeth Bennett the fish, affectionately known as Fish Lizzie died today. I'll spare you the details, but she was given a very respectable flushing. She & Mr. Darcy the fish had a magical two weeks of fishy bliss at my humble abode. Mr. Darcy is unavailable for comment at the moment, as he is hiding near the pirate ship. Sources say no immediate replacement to Lizzie will be made, as Mr. Darcy needs time to grieve.

Sad face. I'm not sure Mr. Darcy will ever get over it.

I think she died of consumption as any good girl of her era would. She must have been scorned by another suitor and died of a broken heart. Sorry Darcy...she went for Wiloughby this time. Yes, I know I'm crossing my Austen (and other) story lines.

Hahahaha, consumption it is. It's okay that you're crossing Austen story lines, I might get a new fish list week and name her Jane, as in Eyre. So it's a literary mashup tank with Bronte & Austen fish. :)
