wendy moira angela darling is the most ridiculous name in the world, it’s so long. nevertheless, several people requested a wendy post. to be fair, i thought it was an awesome idea so props to you kids. everybody pretty much knows the deal with wendy. long story short - she flies to neverland, hangs out, decides to be a grown up and goes home. however in the end, she finds herself wondering if peter will ever return. sad trombone.

catherine earnshaw was quite the tortured soul, much like all the other characters in wuthering heights. her childhood was happy enough and she formed a close relationship with her foster brother, heathcliff. the two had some good times until fate took catherine to thruscross grange. after spying on the fancy home with heathcliff, a dog attacked catherine and she stayed at the grange where she was educated on how to ‘be a lady’. this education forever changed her but heathcliff remained devoted to her. long story short, she marries a rich man (from thruscross of course), heathcliff disappears, comes back, catherine’s love for heathcliff drives her insane, she dies, haunts everybody in the world and heathcliff dies. hooray!

this post isn’t so much about a literary character or a historical personality but, indulge me. i saw an education a few months ago and i loved it. long story short is that a teenager gets involved with an older man who offers her escape from high school and suburban doldrums. she trades books for weekends in paris, gambling, cavorting with glamorous types and the good life. of course, it all comes crashing down but you have to love the excitement of her new life. naturally, she gets all new clothes too.

lizzy bennet is one of the most celebrated characters in literature. in pride and prejudice she was well liked, bright and grounded with charm. the whole book she sort of exudes this attraction, not just because she’s pretty but because she’s pretty cool too. so basically, she was that one popular girl in school who was actually nice too. if you’ve been to high school/college on the east coast you know that this girl usually dresses pretty freakin’ awesome. keeping this in mind and acknowledging her slight country bumpkin-ness, i give you elizabeth bennet from pride and prejudice. BOOM.
