]i Hooray for that. I was starting to think it strange that everybody likes Fanny and Edmund. They`re so godamn insipid. Specially the way they try to spoil other people`s fun all the time...
I'm surprised that you ever thought everybody liked Fanny & Edmund. ;-) There has been a lot of Fanny (& Edmund) bashing on this board, among other places!
That said, some of us do not find them to be insipid, or nerdy (although being nerdy isn't necessarily a negative characteristic). I like all of JA's heroines; Elizabeth Bennet will always be my favorite, but I have a soft spot for Fanny as well.
