herenya: A Thing

herenya: A Thing:




I would say that it’s a mistake to assume that Book!Jane’s feelings mirror those of our Jane in regards to a gentleman.

… for what it’s worth, I don’t like the use of the word ‘mistake’ here. AoJE adopts an elliptical approach to storytelling, which means we’re left to…

I just thought it was an amusing way to bring up the idea and allow for further discussion. 

It was never meant to actually imply that any interpretations are ‘mistakes’.

Though, I feel compelled to point out that the word ‘mistake’ is often seen as a negative word – but is, in fact, not one. Penicillin was a ‘mistake’, as was Rubber, Plastic, and Coca-Cola. For the most part, all artists work by first making ‘mistakes’ and finding solutions to them. 

I think it would be a mistake to avoid the word. 

Help! My fannish space is being invaded!
