Jane Austen Week questions #2

First of all this is my 100th post!!!!!!!!! I am very excited about it! :)

This is also part to of the questions for Jane Austen week. So without further ado....

3. Who are your top 3 favorite Jane Austen heroines and why?

Elinor Dashwood is most perhaps my favorite! I love her very very much! The more times I read S&S, and watch, the more I find I like her, and relate to her best of all. I love how she is so kind and caring for her sisters, even when you would not really want to be kind and caring. I take her as an example of sibling kindness. She is always prime and proper. She is in a way my role model. Elinor is the oldest of 3 sisters, and I am the oldest of 4 sisters. So I understand her feelings as a older sibling.

Elizabeth Bennet I like when I was younger because we had the same name. :) Now as I have come to be more familiar with her I like her because she is not afraid to speak her mind. She is smart witty, and she is passionate, but not like Marian Dashwood. She is a reasonable person, and can be very kind.

Jane Bennet is not really a heroine in the book, but love her so much that is is one of my favorites! She is so sweet and loving. She always tries the think the best of people, even when is seems impossible that they could be good. Who could not love Jane? I really adore her and feel some what protective of her. Another thing here is that she is the oldest of 5 sisters, and am, as I said before, the oldest of 4 sisters. I just love Jane!

4. Who are your 3 favorite Jane Austen Heroes and why?

Edward Ferris is sweet, kind shy, and not always sure of himself. He love Elinor which means I love him for being sensible and knowing that Elinor is an amazing person. He like children (he played with Margaret at least in the movie. I have not read the book for a while so I don't remember if he did in the book :). He trys keeps his promises even if his heart does not want to, because of this I would call him and honorable gentleman.

Mr. Darcy how could one not like Mr. Darcy? I didn't like how he was proud and seemed some what arrogant. He also was a bit of a snub. But he was a gentleman and he did try to include Elizabeth when others would have left her out. He is also very funny at least I think he is though his character is not suppose to be funny like Mr. Bennet. It is a different kind of funny.

Colonel Brandon, who I have forgotten to include a picture of, is sweet and kind. He cares about people, and loves Marian even though she does not love him and wishes her happiness. I always have thought that the person who loves you most will do what will make you happiest, even if it is not what they want.

5. Any honorable mention for 3, 4, and 5?

Elinor Dashwood
Jane Bennet
Edward Ferris
& Colonel Brandon

And that concludes my 100th post.

PS. Should I do something more 100th posty after the Jane Austen Week? Do you have any suggestions?
