    Summary

    He shook his head. “Marianne is light and fire and passion; you could warm your hands on her. You are my friend: peacefulness and ease. Do you think that’s nothing? I was cursed by the fairy of silence at my christening, Elinor, there are few in this world I can talk to so easily.” He stood in the rain, the cold droplets slicking his hair and sliding down the back of his collar. “When you marry, Elinor, I will try to be happy for you, because I would like to see you settled with one who values you, established. But I would grieve also, for I would be sorry to lose my friend.”

    Summary

    Marianne has finally grown to love Colonel Brandon and has accepted his proposal.
    She is fully prepared and ready to enter into a life of bliss and love but trouble seems afoot. Even though Marianne is willing to let all of Colonel Brandon in, Colonel Brandon seems hellbent on keeping things from her. Marianne begins to doubt her choices and the preposed possibility of a promised blissful future. As they drift further apart from one another, a once most-beloved acquaintance re-enters Marianne's life and brings more gloom to her doomed dream of a future.

    It is as Shakespeare once said: 'The course of true love never did run smooth.'

    Summary

    Belle was often considered the odd Dashwood sister not just by her family but by everyone who knew her or the Dashwood name. It was because she was not like most women. Belle was interested in archery, horse riding, sword fighting, reading, but she did indulge her mother by taking an interest in painting and music. Her father was the one who both encouraged and joined her in participating with many of her interests. He even taught her everything that he would with a son. So when he died it had felt that she not only lost a father but a friend as well. Now, she, her mother, and her sisters must find a way to survive in the world with what little money they have been given, and while three of the four sisters fall in love.

    Summary

    An imagination of how Marianne's affections for Colonel Brandon developed, in the attempted style of Jane Austen.

    *readtrough with slight additions june '20.

    It did not sit well with me, that the book described their marriage as "his reward" and suggested that she didn't fully desire it until some time after. So this is sort of a fix-it.

    I dedicate this of course to Alan Rickman.
