My name is Marianne and I'm a Jaffoholic. I spend more time reading than writing, but I will write when enough tempted (or threatened by stinky fish thrown at me in chat)
In RL I teach Spanish to adolescents (and Dwiggies) for a career and work at Girl Scout camps (yes, plural) on the weekends, teaching archery, canoeing, and lifeguarding. At present I live with my mom and itinerant college student brother and I'm working on my Master's in Instructional Technology.
I have loved JA since my freshman year of college (UGA! Go Dawgs) when I went on a complete Austen binge and read everything, and then watched the movies. I do believe I watched P&P2 in one sitting one very long night. Oh, and I suppose I'm Charlotte Lucas' age now, still lookin' for my
Mr. CollinsMr. Darcy.
In Compassionate Silence Written by Marianne. After giving Elizabeth the letter, Darcy takes himself off to a secluded copse of Rosings Park, sits down and cries unobserved (or so he thinks). Little does he know that he is not the only one to retreat to that particular copse that day. ~P&P~ Last update 05/11/2008 (Epi)
Not in a Humour to Wait Written by Marianne. Instead of Elizabeth thanking Darcy for helping out her sister, Darcy is the one who begins the conversation in which he proposes for the second time. ~P&P~ Last update 03/31/2008 (Epi)
