in consequence of the missive, Generosity of the Musgrove girls, penned by Liza G.
It's almost as if Wentworth is a celebrity, equally inaccessible to all of them and therefore safe for all of the to adore. Perhaps in their fever of admiration, the girls don't really expect anything serious to come of the aquaintance. Do they know there are running bets as to which of them will catch him, I wonder?
An excellent point though, as long as Wentworth shows no preference to any of them, he doesn't upset the delicate balance.
I think Louisa shows real initiative and intelligence in preceiving that she actually has a shot at the Captain. And she gets rid of her competition, skillfully keeping Henrietta happy with Mr. Hayter.
It does bear stiriking similarities to the outward situation in MP, the fundamental difference being the temperment and characters of the people involved. The Bertram girls were spoiled, spiteful and selfish and Henry Crawford got his kicks out of manipulating them and playing them. The Musgrove girls are really quite sweet and Captain Wentworth seems to be pretty much oblivious.
