in consequence of the missive, Here's my take..., penned by Maia Elizabeth
You brought up some points I hadn't thought about.
I always disliked the "Fanny-loves-him-so-he-must-be-alright" or "Fanny-thinks-he-desrves-her-so-it-must-be-true" arguments, since they seemed flimsy to me. But I like the idea of her loving him even if he doesn't deserve her, and even when she knows that he doesn't.
I like that, and it makes a lot more sense to me, that eventually she loves him just because she loves him, even in spite of his very big flaws, and only wants him to love her back, not to prove himself to her.
