An Indecent Proposal
  • Jane: I must leave you.
  • Rochester: WHY JANE, WHY?? DON'T YOU LIKE IT HERE??
  • Jane: Yes, but you have a bride.
  • Rochester *PANIC. Oh crap, what does she know? Play it cool. Act natural*: Jane, I don't know what you're talking about.
  • Jane: Blanche Ingram, the woman you're about to marry!
  • Rochester *sigh of relief*: Oh her. She SO does not matter. I know I've given you every reason to THINK I am interested in Miss Ingram, but I love YOU, Jane. Can't you see how all the things I did were to make you jealous, so that you would reveal that you have feelings for me too? I mean that gypsy thing was not at all creepy in any manner, right? Don't you love me too, Jane? Oh, Jane, little bird darling say you'll marry me.
  • Jane: I am no bird.
  • Rochester: No of course you're not; that wouldn't work out all, would it? I was being metaphorical, Janet!
  • Jane: Are you making my name into a swear word?
  • Rochester: No, JANE, just say you'll marry me.
  • Jane: I don't know if I trust you.
  • Rochester: Why ever not? Is it the house? Is it the mysterious fire? Is it Grace Poole or a myriad of other issues, all of which have a very simple explanation but one that I refuse to offer?
  • Jane: Something like that, yes.
  • Rochester: So that's a YES??

Jane Eyre Month - Favorite Male Character: Edward Fairfax Rochester

“Nature meant me to be, on the whole, a good man, Miss Eyre: one of the better kind, and you see I am not so. […] Then take my word for it, — I am not a villain: you are not to suppose that — not to attribute to me any such bad eminence; but owing, I verily believe, rather to circumstances than to my natural bent, I am a trite common-place sinner, hackneyed in all the poor petty dissipations with which the rich and worthless try to put on life.”

I had not intended to love him; the reader knows I had wrought hard to extirpate from my soul the germs of love there detected; and now, at the first renewed view of him, they spontaneously revived, great and strong! He made me love him without looking at me.

I was feeling emotionally fragile this weekend so I decided to watch one of my favorite period movies. The adaptation of Jane Eyre with Michael Fassbender and Mia Wasikowska. And while I was watching I realized why I was doomed to love SoSoo from the very beginning.

A type has emerged: Surly, emotionally unstable, potentially dangerous bigamists with tragic pasts and spirited black horses with which they very nearly trample their love interests the first time they meet.
