Marry into Fiction

Mags at Austenblog has just married Henry Tilney from this website. Some of our favourite characters are waiting to be married as well:

From Jane Eyre:

Edward Fairfax Rochester (married to 17 people)
John Reed (unmarried)
Richard Mason (unmarried)
St.John Rivers (married once)

From Wuthering Heights:

Catherine Linton (unmarried)
Hareton Earnshaw (unmarried)
'Harton' (unmarried...)
Heathcliff (married to 15 people)
Linton Heathcliff (married to 3 people)

Looks like Jane should have checked the pantry and the cellar, and the shed, and under the bed... in the closet, behind the curtains...

Somebody WANTS to marry Linton Heathcliff? But he just WHINES!

Andrew said...

That was meant to be from my Aidan Brack account! D'oy!

I did think Hareton was the fan favourite (after Heathcliff)... I would like to know who would want to marry Heathcliff! It is my belief that if you're not Cathy the elder, this is not at all a good idea. ;)

You can be our man of a thousand faces as well as Cornish correspondent. :)

"I would like to know who would want to marry Heathcliff!"
Actually, there are quite a few who would want to.

to mysticgypsy:

Oh, I know there are. But I really believe that if you are not Cathy Earnshaw, that would not be at all wise!
