I think you know what this will provoke. I think you know how dangerous the consequences promise to be, and I think you knew that before you took up the knife. I think I know why you did it, and I don’t think it had anything to do with him or with her or with gold. I think it had to do with something entirely different and I understand. So I will not let those consequences touch you.

01. I’m only the face of every woman, just a heartbeat in a man / 02. I don’t need blue blood running through my veins, because like a queen, like a queen, I can make you say you love me / 03. no one ever died from wanting too much / 04. as long as there’s a light, my shadow’s over you, ‘cause I, I am the opposite of amnesia / 05. standing on the cliff face, highest fall you’ll ever grace, it scares me half to death / 06. I’m just an angel that’s fallen from grace, in a weak moment I doubted my faith, I danced with the devil, and I’m so ashamed, he never mentioned that I’d have to pay / 07. as darkness quickly steals the light that shined within her eyes, she slowly swallows all her fear, and soothes her mind with lies / 08. let no voice falter, let die no flame, let all remember your every name / 09. you may kill me now, and you may hurt me so, but I will haunt you ‘til the end is nigh
The “Anne With an E” Netflix series isn’t as much of a “daring” or “modern” children’s lit adaptation as the Netflix hype wants us to believe. It’s just like the ‘70s “Little House on the Prairie” series: pretty much ignores the books after the first episode so the 1870s characters can suffer traumas and grapple with the issues of Current Year. The only real difference is the lack of perms and of shirtless Michael Landon.
Patton asked Ann to read something off to him so he could work on what he was doing and hear the email at the same time, and Ann doesn’t say anything. Smiling a little, he says, “C’mon, Ann, don’t you know how to read? Let’s hear it.” When Ann still doesn’t start reading, the smile drops right off Patton’s face. “You- you don’t- you don’t know how to read?” He cuts off all the apologies on the tip of Ann’s tongue to hug him and promises that he’ll have Logan teach him how.
I found your blog yesterday and have been reading through it since, and I have to say I love the notion that if Harville knew about The History, he'd just tow Wentworth over to Anne to make them sort things out. I love Persuasion and Wentworth but the mental image of his brother captain forcing him to Get Over Himself Already is quite delightful (even though that would shorten the story considerably).
Best AU ever. Or take it even further and go back six years when Wentworth was back in England again and Harville just frog-marches him over to Kellynch like “HE WILL NOT SHUT UP ABOUT ANNE ELLIOT AND HE IS RICH NOW SO PLEASE MARRY HIM AND PUT US ALL OUT OF OUR MISERY SO WE CAN TALK OF SOMETHING ELSE.” And Wentworth is all “but my pride!” And Harville goes “YOU TALK TO ANNE IN YOUR SLEEP DUDE YOU HAVE NONE.”
I can’t tell if you mean *you* as in me specifically (and that you ask this question knowing what I make and sell) or if you are asking *you* generally with no understanding as to what independent artists usually sell as a generalization. I obviously can’t speak for what other independent artists sell but I make Winchester bullet casing jewelry myself, which doesn’t violate the show’s copyright or intellectual property as Winchester ammunition existed BEFORE the show and the character’s namesakes. They are named after the ammunition/gunsmithers, not the other way around. I pay Creation for a table (I personally usually buy two now, which is $800 for both) at their event and I operate under the rules/regulations given to me, which the other ask elaborated on. I do not work for Creation because of this. I am renting from them essentially. They are my landlord. And like all landlords, they have rules, which I and others must follow.
They can’t sue me because I’m not in violation of any laws even outside their rules. Fan fiction is a whole other can of worms. You are talking about the witch hunting days of Anne Rice and fanfiction.net essentially, which has no bearing on what I (or the usual independent artists that travel with Creation, all of whom are my friends, tho the latter is irrelevant to this discussion) do. If anyone wrote fanfiction and sold it with the complete character names and descriptions, then they’d have a problem. It’s why E.L. James had to rename her Twilight fanfiction characters before Fifty Shades of Grey could be published. I know several other people who have done the same thing. It’s more common now more than ever, in fact.
