I agree completely with your take on the Gothic Novel connection. I also suspect, that as a keen observer of life Jane understood that the innocence she was describing brings out the protective streak, and dare I say baser tendencies are also stirred that are somewhat at odds with any fatherly inclination. Indeed, my respect for Jane's meticulous writing precludes any possibility of belief in her being unaware of some of the cardinal attributes she is describing. Oops, rant mode over.
