    Summary

    It wasn't right for a girl to have a wolf, they said, not for a normal girl. There was something queer about a girl with a wolf, not quite natural. Certainly it wouldn't do at all for a girl to be seen in society with a wolf at her side, like some kind of heathen foreigner, or worse—an American!

    In smaller towns, they might put down a girl's wolf the very day of imprinting, before the bond had a chance to settle. A few days of sickness, fever and an upset stomach, and she'd be all right. She wouldn't even remember, a girl that age.

    That was what they said.

    (Rebecca + psychic wolves. Warning: contains a mostly off-screen animal death, for those sensitive to that.)

    Summary

    This fan fiction is based on the novel, Rebecca (1938), by Daphne Du Maurier, and the film of the same title (1940) directed by Alfred Hitchcock. The novel was apparently THE most popular Gothic romantic thriller novel for women of the 1930’s. I don’t think it has ever gone out of print. The film Rebecca won two Oscars for Best Picture and Cinematography (black and white) and received 9 other nominations. All the lead actors were nominated, Sir Lawrence Olivier, for Best Actor (Maxim de Winter), Joan Fontaine, for Best Actress (2nd Mrs. de Winter) and Dame Judith Anderson, for Best Supporting Actress (Mrs. Danvers).

    Mrs. Danvers, the narrator of this tale who is sharing her memories, is decidedly NOT the heroine of the tale. The heroine of this tale has no name and never had a name. The only name she has is the one bestowed upon her when she became married to the rich widower and owner of the mansion Manderley. So she is known only as the second Mrs. de Winter. Mrs. Danvers will here tell you her story, and explain how she feels about the events that happened after she lost the one, the only, Rebecca.

    Summary

    When I first became her personal maid, I thought of Rebecca as my absolute opposite: delicate where I was hard, as rose-mouthed and sensuous as I was pale and papery.
