RIP ALAN RICKMAN
To me, Alan Rickman will always be the man that brought Colonel Brandon to life.
Colonel Christopher Brandon of Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility.
An actual gentleman, by far my favorite of all Austen’s male characters.
He was loving.
He was so kind, sometimes so much that it hurt him.
Alan Rickman brought Colonel Brandon into the world in a very real way, and he did my favorite author justice.
