Period Drama Meme: 5 Deaths | Mrs. Hamley

She was struck with the change in ‘madam’s’ looks as soon as she caught sight of her in the darkened room, lying on the sofa in her dressing-room, all dressed in white, which almost rivalled the white wanness of her face.

Period Drama Meme: 4 Villains | Mr. Preston & Hyacinth

(Yes I know Hyacinth isn’t a “villain” in the usual sense. I don’t care.)

"Indeed! I am truly glad to hear it. I always always fond of Osborne; and, do you know, I never really took to Roger; I respected him and all that, of course. But to compare him with Mr. Henderson! Mr. Henderson is so handsome and well-bred, and gets all his gloves from Houbigant!”

"He says often enough he does not care what he does so that he gets me to be his wife; and that after that he is sure he can make me love him."

Period Drama Meme: 3 Objects | Roger’s Science Stuff

That evening he adjusted his microscope, and put the treasures he had collected in his morning’s ramble on a little table; and then he asked his mother to come and admire. Of course Molly came too, and this was what he had intended. He tried to interest her in his pursuit, cherished her first little morsel of curiosity, and nursed it into a very proper desire for further information. Then he brought out books on the subject, and translated the slightly pompous and technical language into homely every-day speech.

∟ “I do know what you must be feeling. You must’ve thought I was very hard on you. I’m not very good at expressing myself, somehow I always fall into philosophizing. But I do feel very sorry for you, and I shall often be thinking of you.”

A List of Fictional Men I Would Marry if Given the Chance (In No Particular Order) - Roger Hamley, Elizabeth Gaskell’s Wives and Daughters


If he went to Africa, he ran some deadly chances; he knew better what they were now than he had done before. Until his return he would not even attempt to win more of her love than he already had. But once safe home again, no weak fancies as to what might or might not be her answer should prevent his running all chances to gain the woman who was to him the one who excelled all. His was not a poor vanity that thinks more of the possible mortification of a refusal than of the precious jewel of a bride that may be won. Somehow or another, please god send him back safe, he would put his fate to the touch. And till then he would be patient. He was no longer a boy to rush at the coveted object; he was a man capable of judging and abiding.

                    - Roger Hamley, Elizabeth Gaskell’s Wives and Daughters
