On aug 24th 3pm est we should trend #CamilaTheBananaQueen

Recently there’s been a lot of negativity towards Camila in the past few months. People try to drag her down with stupid “hashtag parties” use trends to demean and belittle her, social media seems to be a hive for negative activity. Tomorrow we should try to change that with something positive. On aug 24th at 3pm EST ( that’s 8pm in the uk) let’s all trend #CamilaTheBananaQueen since we all know that Camila’s favorite food is a banana. And as seen from recent pics she has no problem dressing up as one. Hopefully we can get this cute hashtag trending for Camila and her fans. Use pics, statements, cute gigs and anything else that reminds you guys of what you love about Camila. The goal of this hashtag is to spread positivity within the fandom. Not hate. So hopefully we will see you guys on Twitter tomorrow to trend this hashtag for Camila. :)

I was just thinking that I really want a lesbian Jane Eyre inspired story.

Jane still goes to Rochester’s house, still works as a governess, teaching his illegitimate daughter, Adéle, but she’s repulsed by Rochester and his treatment of women. She searches the house at night, having heard odd noises and seen glimpses of a strange woman in the night who is not there in the day. There is talk of the house being haunted, but Jane doesn’t believe in ghosts. 

In a way, once she discovers the truth, she wishes that it had been something Supernatural. Instead, she discovers Rochester’s wife - Bertha - the woman he has married for her money and locked in the attic when he became tired of her. He has told everyone she is mad, that as woman of mixed race her blood was tainted. 

Bertha is not mad. She is a brilliant, angry, trapped woman and Jane becomes her only friend and confident. They meet in secret at night. They discuss everything - books, philosophy, art, science and current affairs. Bertha has missed so much in her confinement and Jane is only too happy to talk to her, to have an equal in thought and feeling. They fall in love through their words and their discussions.

When Rochester discovers them, he throws Jane out of the house and sets about destroying her reputation with malicious lies.

Adéle is to be sent to strict, cruel boarding school. Rochester no longer wants to burden of caring for her. Knowing how awful the school Jane was at was, how she suffered and how her only friend died, Bertha pleads with Rochester not to send Adéle away, to punish Bertha instead. After all, it is Bertha and her affair that he is angry with. 

He promises, indeed, that he will punish Bertha for what she has done and that sending Adéle away is one of the ways he intends to do that. But in sending Adéle to an uncertain fate, he is being kinder to her than he intends to be to Bertha. He has a certain fate in store for her. 

The fire that Bertha sets is to save herself and Adéle. It is Rochester who burns in it. 

Bertha, free and with her husband’s fortune- the fortune he took from her when he married her, seeks out Jane. She finds her preparing to marry a distant cousin and sail to the West Indies as a missionary’s wife. It is not the life Jane wants, but she feels she must after losing her position and begin cast out into the world - her reputation ruined by Rochester’s lies regarding his relationship with her. Her only hope, until Betha’s return, is a loveless marriage for the sake of convention.

Bertha begs Jane not to leave her again, to come and live with her - anywhere in the world they choose - and to raise Adéle with her. 

Jane breaks off her engagement and the two women run away together, to somewhere far away from the conventionalities of England, somewhere where their money and their anonymity keep them safe. There is a garden in the grounds of their new home, one that Bertha spends as much of her time in as possible. She loves the feel of the grass on her feet, the heat of the sun, the brightness of it all - things she never thought she would feel again. They raise Adéle as their own, imbuing in her the self-confidence and love she needs to flourish. They are happy, they are free.  

I am not defined by the fact that my parents speak Spanish or that my skin color is brown. I’m defined by my character, and my character is a strong woman that’s independent, that’s following her dreams, that wants love, that wants a family, that wants to succeed just like anybody else in this world.
