another jane austen one for y’all today, elinor dashwood from sense and sensibility. this story is pretty complicated and i’m sure you’ve heard some version of it before so i’ll be brief. let’s just say it’s very austen, sensible smart girl falls victim to the society around her and must disobey her heart’s desire. various events occur in which the man of her desire realizes how much he loves and needs her (with some mistaken identity situations in between) and they live happily ever after in a kick ass english country manor. done.

do you know dracula? he ate the cullens one time.
glad that is out of the way, on to mina harker. in bram stoker’s original novel, mina was the wife of jonathan harker who was imprisoned in dracula’s castle with three crazy she vampires. eventually, he was able to escape to budapest. mina, his dutiful and angelic lover visits him and the pair marry before returning to england. when they return they find mina’s crazy friend lucy has been killed by a blood sucking beast! dracula. oh no, shit’s getting real. the two join up with van helsing to destroy dracula forever but before they do that, dracula sinks his teeth in to mina and curses her to turn vampire when she dies. ruh-roh.
so, mina and dracula now share this strange psychic and magical connection but eventually the group takes dracula down and mina’s soul is spared. it’s one of my favorite books ever.
