Which Austen heroine am I?

I am Marianne Dashwood!

“You are Marianne Dashwood of Sense & Sensibility! You are impulsive, romantic, impatient, and perhaps a bit too brutally honest. You enjoy romantic poetry and novels, and play the pianoforte beautifully. To boot, your singing voice is captivating. You feel deeply, and love passionately.”

Take the Quiz here!

Umm. I took piano lessons for a year when I was ten… that’s not “beautifully”, that’s “yes, you do play only a little”. Captivating singing voice? I do okay on Singstar, but I wouldn’t call that “captivating” by any stretch of the imagination! I also have an intense dislike of poetry. I once bought the collected poems of DH Lawrence in a fit of “I like his writing and he’s a LOCAL!” (five years in Nottingham and I’ve still never been to the DH Lawrence Heritage site in Eastwood, 20 mins from where we live now *cough*) only to remember, when I finally opened it to read, that I find 98% of all poetry insanely dull to read. Not that I think all poets are bad or anything, I’m sure a lot of them are fantastic, I just can’t stand the medium for some reason. Vogon poetry being the big exception. The rest of the description I pretty much agree with. They should’ve thrown in a description about fancying older men as well, and hey presto… 😉 (Or maybe Brandon isn’t that much older in the book? I can’t remember.) Naww, now I feel like watching Sense & Sensibility again. ‘Twas such a long time ago.
