So I wasn’t quite sure what I was going to write about tonight, and then I found this on my tumblr dash.
This is a callout-answer to the thing I was mentioning here, ages ago. At least in my opinion. (I also admit that in reference to that, I never finished watching The Lizzie Bennet Diaries. I kept up with it for a bit after I’d written that post, but then I kept hearing that it exploded with things I wouldn’t want to deal with, so I just… stopped.)
And unfortunately, The March Family Letters isn’t apparently actually going to begin until December of this year, but the fact that it exists really and truly makes me happy. Largely because of that grimdark/douchebag thing I was talking about last night, actually. I think the reason I loved and love Little Women so much is that it is just about a family (that is by blood) that loves the hell out of each other. And yes, Jo and Amy fight. Yes, the sisters have drastically different priorities. But they love each other. They are friends. They give a damn about each other and they are close and they do things together and they support each other and –
Well, I just think it’s really lovely and I love that someone is finally doing this, because this is a narrative that is about positive relationships first and foremost and that is beautiful. I can’t wait for it to actually happen. And I may need to reread Little Women in the interim.
