bbc north and south


John Thornton and Margaret Hale, from North and South (by Elizabeth Gaskell). Inspired by the 2004 BBC adaptation ;)

After watching the series an embarassing number of times and falling in love with Richard Armitage as Mr Thornton, I just had to draw him and Margaret. Be still my shipping heart!!

“I wish I could tell you Edith, how lonely I am. How cold and harsh it is here. Everywhere there is conflict and unkindness. I think God has forsaken this place. I believe I have seen hell. It’s white. It’s snow white." 

It was this that made the misery - that he passionately loved her, and thought her, even with all her faults, more lovely and more excellent than any other woman
