Some expressions in ch48 -- it began to strike him and just such a contrast with his early opinion on the subject -- remind me that there were many predictions made earlier in the book. It's hard to discuss predictions when they're made, because we often can't say much more than "Look what he/she thinks is going to happen, let's see how that goes later in the group read, nudge nudge."
Edmund was still predicting at the end of ch47 (it was a sort of thing which he never could get entirely the better of etc etc), but I thought I'd go back and take stock of the predictions in ch1.
In conclusion, most of the weightier predictions are either wrong, or technically right in unintended ways. Anyone'd think that this book was written by the creator of Emma Woodhouse.
At least Fanny never teased Pug, as far as we know... though that one was only a hope, not an out-and-out prediction.
