My husband is way better read than I, due to his private liberal arts high school as opposed to my public school experience, but Jane Eyre is one of the few “classics” that I’ve read and he hasn’t (and frankly, the only reason I read it is AOJE).
He asked what it was about, and I thought for a moment, and then belted out “SHE WOULD DO ANYTHING FOR LOVE, BUT SHE WON’T DO THAT.”
The shop is The Sock Monster in Seattle. There are a small, local, women-owned business, and they’re wonderful people with a wonderful store. The photos I took are of maybe half of their displayed stock.
If you’re ever in Seattle, make sure to drop in. They’re right next to a gelato shop that makes their own waffle cones. It will be a trip to remember.
They also take online orders…
Wait, he’s 24 and finishing his residency? So he finished medical school at 20? So he was accepted into medical school at… 16?
Is this a Canadian thing? Is residency different in Canada?
I am feeling a little jerked around right now, especially as I arrange my Wednesday mornings to make room for Jane time. No video, fine — but at least tweet something so that I know that someone didn’t forget to schedule the post.
There’s “realism” and then there’s “remaining true to the storytelling structure you have developed for your audience.”Edited to add: and it wouldn’t have to be a tweet from Jane. This would be an excellent time to make use of the other trans media outlets they’ve set up, to establish that the radio silence is part of the story — that the absence of a story is part of the plot. Anyway. Boo.
That is exactly what I wanted to see and how I wanted to see it.
I am dead of the feels.
I can’t wait for the next story arc, tpp; it was my favorite part of the book, and I’m looking forward to see how it’s adapted for the web series. I really want Jane to escape to the Gulf Islands — Salt Spring Island, especially, or somewhere farther up north — and settle into a small community.
I also want to see how the producers use transmedia to show Rochester’s side of the story. The book doesn’t show that at all, which is really powerful, but I think it’d be unfaithful to the world the adaptation has built to not show at least glances into Rochester’s story while Jane is at Moor House.
Episode 50: Dischordant
If the campaign goes over $12,000, can we have a blooper/behind-the-scenes video just from Backstreet’s Back? Because that will totally motivate me…
