Would You Rather

Hiiii, everyone.  I'm back.  Well, actually, I've been back for a while... I just sort of haven't gotten around to posting.

And even this is... just a tag. ;)  But could I resist a Jane Austen tag? I think not.  This one is from Write On, Cordy!


Who would you rather have act as your matchmaker, Lady Russell (from Persuasion) or Mrs. Jennings?

Mrs. Jennings... she would at least be funny.  Lady Russell is just materialistic. :P  Less prone to say embarrassing things, but...  well, hopefully whomever she's matchmaking me with can join me in joking about it instead of being embarrassed. :)



Who would you like as a pen pal from Jane Austen's works?

Jane Austen.
Sorry, is that not an option.
Well then... perhaps Elinor Dashwood.  I feel like all the snark within her would come out the most in letters. ;)

Who would you rather go on a walk with, Colonel Fitzwilliam or Captain Benwick?

Colonel Fitzwilliam, definitely.  I have no taste for Captain Benwick.

Who would you rather have to befriend, Mrs. Elton or Lucy Steele?

Lucy Steele, actually... they are both really obnoxious but at least Lucy Steele can pretend to be agreeable sometimes.  Mrs. Elton is just like a constant annoying noise.

Who would you rather have as a sibling, John Knightley or Mary (from Persuasion, not Mary Bennet)?

Definitely John Knightley. No question about that.  He at least is funny, and doesn't have the attitude that the whole world exists to cater to his every whim.


Who would you rather dance with? (Very open book!)

Henry Tilney. Always my answer! I mean, need I say more??

Who would you rather refuse, Mr. Collins or Mr. Elton?

HA.  Ehm... Mr. Elton, because he would shut up sooner.

Who would you rather match-make for, Miss Bates or Mary Bennet?

Miss Bates.  Mary could bear solitude but I'm not sure what Miss Bates will do after her mother dies, with Jane gone and everything.  There is nobody in the book that I would have for her, though. We would have to make one up.

Who would you rather have as a best friend?

Ummmm... Amy?  Oh, we're not talking about real life. Okay.

Jane Austen!!!!
Oh... sorry, not an option either? Hmm.

I'm... tempted just to say Elizabeth Bennet?  Come on, people. She's witty and she's loyal and she be introvert-y and extrovert-y at different times.


Who would you rather argue with? (Mrs. Bennet, Lady Catherine, Emma Woodhouse, Mr. Woodhouse, Mr. Palmer, Mrs. Jennings, Fanny Dashwood, Captain Wentworth, Mr. Darcy, etc.) 

Wow. Emma, I think.  I would say Mr. Knightley but I might feel a little bit bad arguing with him... with Emma I could just feel more that I was having fun. Or maybe Marianne Dashwood. I feel like she needs someone to argue with.

Would you rather wander the grounds of Pemberley and risk being 'discovered' or wander over the downs surrounding Barton Cottage in the rain and twist an ankle?

Well, as twisting one's ankle would have more lasting consequences, I would definitely risk being discovered at Pemberley.  Besides, the grounds at Pemberley are marvelous. It has some of the best woods in the country. ;)

Where would you live in Austen's works?

Hampshire. ;)

Glad to see you back again Melody! :) Just wondering if you still want to do that cover? If not and you are busy never mind! And I hope you have a beautiful spring :)

I like your answers!
I didn't even think of Jane Austen herself as an option...but she would, I feel sure, make a wonderful friend and pen pal.
I agree about Marianne Dashwood needing someone to argue with. Good point! She could use someone to actually disagree with her!

I have no taste for the Mr Benwick guy either. :-P
I had a dream I met JJ Field yesterday and made him sign my copy of NA, and then I WOKE UP and it was a deceit. :-( (Very sad indeed.)
Discussing with Emma Woodhouse would be SO much fun. :-) (All the facial expressions, haha, would be very entertaining. :-D)
