Today in fictional history is the date of one of the most romantic and beloved events in all bookdom! For today is the day that Mr Fitzwilliam Darcy proposed to Elizabeth Bennet! Even if you've never read the book, the movies will have made you feel the love. (Cue the awws)
While many will swear that Colin Firth is the only Mr Darcy they can picture while reading the book, we think Matthew Macfayden does a pretty amazing job too.
(it's all about the look in the eyes)
