Richard Armitage 30 day challenge
13.) Q: a favorite character quote
A: but Mother, I daren’t believe such a woman could care for me
That whole scene melts me! John believes, for propriety’s sake, that he must propose marriage to Margaret. He truly cares for her but knows she only sees him as a brutish mill master and an unrefined northerner. John’s mother fills his head with hope though, and you see his spirits rise to the possibility. The missing cravat, the open and vulnerable countenance, that sigh…
then the proposal
the rejection. the feels!
damn you, Mrs. Thornton!
