in consequence of the missive, Do you really think C. Benwick was an option for Anne?, penned by MarianneR
The only thing I'm seriously doubtful about is the original proviso: "Setting aside the Captain Wentworth factor for a moment". I'm very tempted to take the letters m-a-r-i out of this Elinor Dashwood quote, and apply it to the point we're up to in Persuasion.
And after all, Marianne, after all that is bewitching in the idea of a single and constant attachment, and all that can be said of one's happiness depending entirely on any particular person, it is not meant -- it is not fit -- it is not possible that it should be so.
It's a matter of opinion, whether that advice could possibly fit with The Anne Elliot Way.
