Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy’s most dramatic style of letter writing.

“Everybody behave naturally, and whatever you do, do not appear overbearing!”
One of these days I will write a short essay on Jane Austen and/or Pride & Prejudice adaptations, because I have an excess of opinions about them and no one to listen but the internet. For today, I’ll just talk about how I finally saw the 1940 adaptation all the way through, and I actually didn’t hate it. (there are spoilers)

Mr. Bennet: If any young men come for Mary or Kitty, for heaven’s sake, send them in. I’m quite at my leisure.
5. Jane Bennet, Pride and Prejudice
So Jane is fabulous. She is the prettiest, the nicest, the strongest. She goes through life thinking the best of people, and that bites her in the ass but she stays strong because she knows it’s no use to be hateful or angry.
Rosamund Pike is also the best Jane in the whole wide world. She played sweet without seeming naive, and she is one of the most beautiful women evar.
3. Mr. Darcy, Pride and Prejudice
What!? Mr. Darcy all the way back at number 3!? Mr. Darcy is ok. I like him just fine. In fact, he’s number 3. But Mr. Darcy is sort of an asshole who readjusts his priorities because of his libido, and in the process remembers what honor’s really about. In the end Mr. Darcy is an amazing, self-sacrificing specimen of Manhood, though, and everyone loves him for it. Besides, he’s rather dapper throughout.
4. Mr Bingley, Pride and Prejudice
Let’s talk some more about nice guys. Mr Bingley is like… the nice guy to end all nice guys. And he’s very rich! Basically, even though he’s horribly weak minded and naive, he’s also fabulously kind hearted and ridiculous. Ridiculousness is quite awesome, if you ask me. He can’t get too high on the list because, after all that niceness… he was quite an idiot.
Also, Simon Woods is my favorite Mr Bingley. He’s not who I initially pictured when I read it… but he’s fantastic.
