  8. It Is a Truth Universally Acknowledged That This Pride & Prejudice Proposal Is the Cutest Ever

    Aaaaaas Yooooou Wiiiiiiiiiiiish

    Jane Austen fans, be prepared to swoon. Coming home one day Redditor ByTingo was greeted by the unusual sight of her sister, dressed in Regency-era garb, exclaiming that Netherfield had been let at last! What followed was was the lucky Austenite getting suited up as Lizzie Bennet to be led through scenes Pride and Prejudice, at the end of which her own Mr. Darcy popped the question. "I was an English lit major - he knew I love P&P and that I would be glad my family was involved," explains ByTingo. "The important part was that it was personal to us!" Props to Darcy for his sentimentality and his common sense: "My favorite book is Les Miserables... but that would have been way too depressing for a proposal. He chose wisely."

  9. Guy Proposes to His Girlfriend With Awesome Video Game He Helped Develop [VIDEO]

    My Precious!

    In super adorable things that make our hearts melt, an artist named Robert Fink worked with friends to develop a pretty involved game called Knight Man in order to propose to his then-girlfriend Angel. He filmed her as she played it (clearly much to her confusion) to document the occasion. The video is a little long, but it's worth it to see her reaction when she realizes what's happening. Congrats to the happy couple - and if you want to play the game, it's here on Fink's website! Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?

    Awwwwww

    When it came time for Redditor Malcolm Collins, aka SirTechnocracy, to propose to his girlfriend Simone Smith, he decided to do something a little… different.

A few of our favorite memes and illustrations are behind the cut so you can revel in the awwwww like we did. (The rest are here and here.) But first, let's hear from Simone about her reaction to the proposal:

  12. If You Thought Lord of the Rings Was an Epic Journey, Wait Until You Watch This Nerdy Scavenger Hunt Proposal

    My Precious!

    This may be the sweetest, most involved geek proposal I've ever seen. Luke Plastow put together a Lord of the Rings themed scavenger hunt for his girlfriend on Christmas Day last year with the intent of asking her to marry him at the end. He wrote to us to say, "She is a huge Tolkein fan and it seemed right that if I was going to give her a ring it should be LOTR themed. The ring itself is Palladium, with a stone the same colour as Sauron’s eye. The setting for the stone is the same shape as Isengard. Inside the ring is an inscription in Black Speech saying 'One ring to rule them all.' " Luke, if you weren't already taken...oh wait, you said your fiancé reads our site...best of luck in your lifelong fellowship!

  13. Watch a Game of Thrones Fan Get Proposed to While Sitting on the Iron Throne [VIDEO]

    You know nothing Jon Snow

    When Jill visited the Game of Thrones exhibit in New York City she had quite a memorable experience, meeting several of the show's stars and sitting on the Iron Throne. A reporter doing a local news segment there just so happened to catch two other Game of Thrones fans who'll never forget their visit, albeit for a different reason: Because they got engaged there. I'm going to forego my kneejerk cynical comment on Westeros weddings and just say that this is pretty freaking cute. Nerd love is the best love.

  14. Harry Potter and the Custom Quidditch Kit Marriage Proposal

    There's An Apparate For That

    Rachel was introduced to Harry Potter by her girlfriend, Jaquie, so she knew that when she wanted to pop the question, she'd be doing it in a certain style. Quidditch style, that is, with a custom made Quidditch set, complete with an openable-snitch containing an engagement ring. You can read the story of the proposal over at Custom Made, but click on for more pictures of the set.

  15. What Better Way To Propose Than With Iron Man’s Heart? [VIDEO]

    Excelsior!

    Ok, that title may sound slightly gory but trust me, this is great. YouTube user Eddie Zarick has a tendency toward tinkering. So much so that his girlfriend took to calling him Iron Man. So when it was time to propose, he paired both things together and created a replica of Tony Stark's arc reactor that doubled as an engagement ring holder! I guess the only thing cooler would be if Zarick actually had the arc reactor where Stark does but we're glad his ticker is working just fine on its own.

  16. Biologist Proposes to Biologist Girlfriend in Fragments of Actual DNA

    she blinded me with science

    The last science class I took was AP Biology in 2003. Well, that's not true, the last science class I took was Astronomy 101, and before that Honors Physics, but I dropped out of the latter after a marking period. So, the last science class I took that offered a significant challenge to me was AP Biology. After nearly a decade, there isn't much I remember about it other than my teacher explaining why we were using an online simulator for the fly genetics lab (because he did it with real flies once and they never left) and dissecting a fetal pig that we named Napoleon. Also, I was absent for the lab where we performed gel electrophoresis, a method of examining the length of DNA fragments. So bear with me on this awesomely sciencey proposal.

    Things We Saw Today

    At a photo op at Austin Comic Con this weekend, a lucky nerd proposed to his girl nerd, and a camera caught everything. We're not sure who delights us more: Brent Spiner or Wil Wheaton.

  20. Jurassic Park Reenactment of the Day (Also Marraige Proposal of the Day)

    hold on to your butts

    Paleeoguy and his girlfriend are both paleontologists who love Jurassic Park, and so obviously nothing would do for a proposal than to reenact the scene in Jurassic Park where Grant is the biggest dick possible to a small child, in the location on which it was filmed (despite it being a very windy day). You crazy kids. But come on. Who wouldn't swoon over an honest to goodness fossilized deinonychus claw?
