    Summary

    “The powers who run Monumental Pictures, in their infinite wisdom, have decided that the time has come --” Don handed her the script, with a flourish. “-- for the very first all-talking, all-singing, all-dancing, all-star cinematic production of the great master of the stage, William Shakespeare, and I've just come from talking R.F. into giving us the leads. You're welcome.”

    “Hey, Sarah Bernhardt,” Don persisted. “Lillie Langtry, listen up.”

    “Look, you boor,” said Cosmo, sternly, “Miss Selden is extremely busy with this riveting account of --” He glanced at the page. “-- Marlene Dietrich's dining-room settings? Now that's a bald-faced lie. Marlene Dietrich never owned anything as mundane as a Betty Crocker dinner plate in her sultry German life. You give me that and let me know which columnist I've got to fight --”

    GIVE IT TO ME PUT IT IN MY EYEBALLS WHY IS THIS NOT A THING.

    “I’ve always felt like I was right for a superpower, you know? Like it was my destiny. Right, Cougar?”

    Cougar considered that one. “No,” he finally decided.

    “No what? No superpower for me? I’m hurt. I thought we were friends, but no one who cared about me would deprive me of my lifelong dream.”

    “No superpowers for me,” Cougar said. Then he smiled a little. “No more superpowers, I mean.”

    Jensen stared at him. The thing was, he wasn’t entirely sure Cougar was kidding.

    This is delightful and daffy and needs to be about sixty thousand words longer. TFV is SO GOOD at in-character humor; it's unfair.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    “Good morning, your ladyship. Major James Edrington reporting as ordered.”

    “Oh, nonsense, Jamie, come give your mama a kiss.” Domestic drill and ceremonies, the Kiss of greeting, he thought to himself as he approached to the requisite distance, and bowed to bestow a filial bus upon the maternal cheek before seating himself beside her. She laid the parasol aside, and took up an envelope that was laying beside her, handing it to him. “Lady Catherine de Bourgh is holding a dinner on Wednesday next, a debut of sorts for Miss de Bourgh. Here is your invitation. You will, of course, attend. She would be an excellent match, and we neither of us are getting any younger.” And ah, the marching orders were not delayed after the presentation of the kiss of greeting. It was all to the letter and as neat as formation. Though, of course, as the lady said, it was nonsense to consider this a new battleground.

    “Of course, Mama,” he agreed, with as sunny a smile as was ever bestowed upon a superior officer.

    Personal headcanon! I love this Georgiana, who's coming out of her shell, and the marriage-mart negotiations are delightful.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Anne Elliot, being of a disposition not at all prone to self-indulgence, did not think of Frederick Wentworth quite as often as might be supposed. That is to say, she did not think of him directly. In the three years that had passed since their brief engagement had ended, she had made conscious efforts to banish from her mind those thoughts which had the power to transform her unhappiness into a bitterness which would render her useless to all who might need her. It might, perhaps, have been easier for her to succeed in this endeavour had there been anyone who did need her.
