Hullo, hullo, hullo!
I’ve been posting a lot of heavier and/or controversial content lately, and as much as I relish those posts and the ensuing discussions … today, I’m in the mood for something light and fun. Something that will make people laugh. I hope this offering fits the bill. 😉
This post is an homage to a YouTube series called “What Your Favorite [*insert fandom*] Ship Says About You” over at the channel Eldena Doubleca5t. All credit for both the concept and the original jokes goes to them. I’m simply taking what they’ve done and applying it to the classic romance/period drama fandom. If you want to see some of their original videos, which are DELIGHTFUL, try “What Your Favorite Star Wars Ship Says About You” or “What Your Favorite Avatar Ship Says About You.” The deadpan quips are just *chef’s kiss* On Point.
(Warning: These videos include some strong language and mention certain controversial pairings. So, y’know. Viewer discretion advised. But I find them hilarious.)
Without further ado … here’s my tongue-in-cheek take on what your favorite classic romance says about you!
Anne and Wentworth, Persuasion: You’re a firm believer in second chances.
Enjolras and Grantaire, Les Miserables: You’re a firm believer in tragic death scenes.
Elinor and Edward, Sense and Sensibility: You don’t get what all the fuss is about. Who needs passion and drama when you can have peace and quiet?
Anne and Gilbert, Anne of Green Gables: You don’t get what all the fuss is about. Shouldn’t every meet-cute involve Character A smashing a slate over Character B’s head?
Marius and Cosette, Les Miserables: You think best-friends-to-lovers is overrated.
Emma and Mr. Knightley, Emma: You think best-friends-to-lovers cannot be rated highly enough.
Achilles and Patroclus, The Iliad: You just wanted good things for Patroclus … and really, who wouldn’t?
Hector and Andromache, The Iliad: You just wanted good things for Hector … and really, who wouldn’t?
Molly and Roger, Wives and Daughters: You’re always here for silent pining.
Elizabeth and Darcy, Pride and Prejudice: You’re always here for feisty women crushing powerful men’s hopes and dreams.
Margaret and Mr. Thornton, North and South: You watched P&P and thought, “You know what this movie needs? More death.”
Alexandra and Carl, O Pioneers: You love a good slow burn. A really, really, REALLY slow burn.
Jane and Rochester, Jane Eyre: You are heterosexual.
Heathcliff and Cathy, Wuthering Heights: Are you okay? Do we need to talk?
Beatrice and Benedick, Much Ado About Nothing: Your ideal relationship dynamic involves witty banter.
Orlando and Rosalind, As You Like It: Your ideal relationship dynamic involves witty banter and cross-dressing.
Mr. and Mrs. De Winter, Rebecca: You like Jane Eyre. You are also heterosexual.
Nick and Gatsby, The Great Gatsby: Your superpower is reading subtext. Mad respect to you.
Gatsby and Daisy, The Great Gatsby: Your superpower is ignoring canon. Mad respect to you.
Gabriel and Bathsheba, Far From the Madding Crowd: You always go for the simple, honest farmers.
Aragorn and Arwen, Lord of the Rings: You always go for the knights in shining armor.
Eowyn and Faramir, Lord of the Rings: You always go for the precious cinnamon rolls.
Jane and Bingley, Pride and Prejudice: You ARE a precious cinnamon roll.
Marianne and Colonel Brandon, Sense and Sensibility: You have impeccable taste. Congratulations. 😉
