(asking this because I kinda see you as a member of the Whouffaldi Round Table - and I should have asked this BEFORE going to the bookstore but I'm a lazy procrastinator and forgot to do it) - but can you think of any books with a "twelve/clara" sort of vibe? I just finished reading Jane Eyre (again, and I ran out of fanfiction too) and I was wondering if maybe you or other people around the fandom knew about another books that also hit this close to home? - Cheers, happy 2017!

Uhhh, books! I’m really a bad human being and am not very read-up on my reading materials. While I stubbornly stick to the notion that Jane Eyre makes for a better novel-sourcing material than Pride & Prejudice, I have not actually read P&P (it’s on the list), so I can’t really confirm that.
A book I started reading because I was told there was that sort of vibe going on - and also that it’s just a good book - is Deathless by
Catherynne M. Valente. From what I’ve read I can say there is that tone, though I’d also give it a Google to see if it’s something you’d be interested in.
Anybody more scholarly than me is more than welcome to answer this question as well.

Vacant Cinema: Jane Eyre (2011) dir. Cary Joji Fukunaga
I wish a woman could have action in her life, like a man. It agitates me to pain that the skyline over there is ever our limit. I long sometimes for a power of vision that would overpass it, if I could behold all I imagine. I’ve never seen a city. I’ve never spoken with men. And I fear my whole life will pass.
Jane Eyre Moodboard - “I remembered that the real world was wide, and that a varied field of hopes and fears, of sensations and excitements, awaited those who had the courage to go forth into its expanse, to seek real knowledge of life amid its perils.”
