Diana: If you need anything, just let Mary or me know. Mary: It’s “Mary or I” Diana: It’s “Mary or me” Mary: No, it’s “Mary or I” Jane: Actually, I think it’s “Mary or me” Mary: You’re right! Cause if I wasn’t here you wouldn’t say “let I know” because that wouldn’t make any grammatical sense. Diana: Anyways, if you need anything just let me know, and I’ll make Mary over here get it for you. (laughs)
The logic that Mary uses to pick between “I” and “me” is fairly standard grammarian advice (drop the “Mary” or the “you” and then use whichever one sounds right when left alone), but this leaves us with an important question: given that picking between “I” and “me” is intuitive in every other context, why do our intuitions abandon us as soon as you add an “and”?
Or in other words, *waggles eyebrows* if “you and me” is wrong, baby, why does it sound so right?
I have been drawing this for fun in my spare time. Inspired by the wonderful web series that is the Autobiography of Jane Eyre. I will probably make more adjustments as time goes by and may even do a series… all the possibilities! I was contemplating posting it later in the series but I am far too impatient! Enjoy!
Jane literally called Rochester out on every crappy thing he’s done.
To every woman on this show.
Not just Jane - in fact, she left herself out almost entirely.
But Adele. And Grace. And his wife. And BLANCHE.
They didn’t demonize Blanche at all, and that is one of the greatest things in the history of ever. We’re calling Rochester out for his ridiculously cruel treatment of her, and we’re not treating her as though she’s just an obstacle in Jane’s way.
So my lovely sister suggested that I make a masterpost of all my favourite web series, so I started off by listing all the web series I’ve ever watched………and there are a lot. So many that I think I might have an eensy bit of a problem. But moving swiftly along, here’s my own not so little list of all the webseries I’ve watched all-the-way-through and want to ramble about in alphabetical order. As always, these are my own thoughts and opinions, and you are perfectly entitled to have different ones. Because this list is so long, I’m putting it under a read-more (cause otherwise this would seriously fill your entire dash) but above the read-more I’m gonna put a list of the web series I talk about so you can see if there’s something you want to check out :)
Watch the above video to hear me say things about the show, watch some snippets of behind the scenes silliness and see me give you a very comprehensive summary of Bronte’s novel with finger puppets. Yes, you heard me. Finger puppets.
