Anonymous asked: Caroline mentions she can't focus when outside the office in an episode, and one of her early tweets mentions 'working' and 'spreadsheets'. I'm under the impression she does something besides coasting on her family's money, too.
I thought that there was a good reason for me to think she was employed. Thanks, anon!
Trying to get the logic of this story. Who pays someone they apparently hate, to do NO work? And they uninvite Harriet because …? Like E. picks on Harriet in the novel because she’s socially vulnerable. Just. Zero understanding of context.
Yeah, if you hate someone, wouldn’t you want them to do all the work? Or pointedly hire someone else to rub it in the hated person’s face that you think they’re not worth paying? Or trash them on Yelp? (Augusta Elton seems like the kind of person to make up bullshit Yelp reviews for people she hates for no good reason.) But Caroline Lee doesn’t have time to be that petty. Isn’t she supposed to be a businesswoman? Shouldn’t she be running something and making gajillions of dollars?
Through everything going on, I keep telling myself that I don’t even like Caroline Bingley or Caroline Lee, really, so I shouldn’t care about this.
AND YET I CARE.
I DON’T UNDERSTAND THIS CHOICE AT ALL.
I actually really love the pictures from the engagement party- Caroline looks relaxed and happy and gorgeous.
Caroline Lee/Bingley moving on after her hopes for Darcy were disappointed and being polite to the Bennets is nice! It’s essentially what we’re told in the book.
Caroline being happy to have her fiance and her brother in her life is great!
…Caroline being Augusta is just super weird and awkward and uncomfortable, and doesn’t fit with the woman in those pictures. I’m having a hard time reconciling Caroline Lee from LBD with Caroline Bingley, and an even harder time reconciling either woman to Augusta Elton, the Cruel and Uppity.
Sure, Caroline was never a warm, kindhearted person like Jane, or a personable loudmouth like Lizzie. But she wasn’t overtly a jerk…
Full disclosure: I never liked Caroline Bingley and I wasn’t too fond of Caroline Lee.
But! Both of them are classier, more polite, more fashionable, and more fabulous than Augusta Elton.
As long as I keep thinking that it’s just the same actress in a different role, I can do this, but that’s so not Caroline Lee that I could almost scream. It’s like nails on a chalkboard.
