brandon & marianne


Colonel Brandon was now as happy, as all those who best loved him, believed he deserved to be;—in Marianne he was consoled for every past affliction;—her regard and her society restored his mind to animation, and his spirits to cheerfulness; and that Marianne found her own happiness in forming his, was equally the persuasion and delight of each observing friend.

My heart is and always will be yours. 

Watched part of 2008 Sense and Sensibility last night. (For reasons that have to do with Dan Stevens)
Ugh. Still not over the gorgeousness of the last scene where Edward confesses his love to Elinor.
Colonel Brandon catching Marianne as she swoons and leveling a death glare at Willoughby was fantastic as well.

Never forget the wood chopping in the rain scene;)

Well, Gillian does swoon amazingly well. I can watch her swooning/fainting/falling in Bleak House again and again and again. Somehow it's just so watchable. Yeah, Redux too.

This is why I’m Austen Trash. I love Lizzy Bennet merrily tromping through the mud to Netherfield but I will also watch Colonel Brandon carry Marianne across the grass over and over and over.

I am 5′8 and solidly built even at my slenderest. (Buxom, I think they call my figure in paperbacks.) I think I have a peculiar fascination with the idea of being delicate enough to swoon.
