A message from diaphenia


Can we just, can we talk about Jane? Or drabble her out? Because she broke my damn heart today. OH MAN

kyrieanne:

Let’s talk about Jane… 

To talk about Jane though let’s take a step back and talk about Frank Churchill…

In my opinion they’ve made Frank so freaking unredeemable that I hope Jane dumps his ass at the end of all of this. In the novel, the thing that was holding him back from being truthful was his aunt. Even before we know his secret we know his aunt dictates his every move. In Emma Approved we have no such context. Without that context it’s hard to feel anything for Frank besides…GROW A PAIR. 

Now back to Jane…

Jane in Episode 64 (Boxx Hill) broke my heart. 

She’s upset about Maddie, but she’s also upset about the whole situation. She’s here, working hard, and Emma is just everything Jane isn’t. And Jane isn’t jealous of Emma as much as she is annoyed. Emma gets to do whatever she wants. Emma is a lot of talk without substance (from Jane’s point of view). She thought they could do great things together, but it turns out Emma is just like Frank…two-faced and without conviction. 

And it doesn’t help that Frank is falling all over Emma. 

She can’t win no matter which way she turns. 

So she takes it out on Emma.

In rewatching the episode I’ve decided that Jane’s censure is earned and also not fair. NEVER does she mention Maddie. She says a lot of stuff about Emma not really being in this to help people. I think her critique is valid, but also not entirely true. They have different ways of going about it, but Emma does care. The thing that Jane has EVERY right to be upset about…she never brings it up. She doesn’t even hint at it. 

So while my heart goes out to Jane I kind of want to look her in the eye (after I’ve poured her a very big glass of wine) and remind her that it’s Frank who is the problem. Emma is also part of the problem, but yelling at Emma and quitting doesn’t solve anything.

All it does is let Frank off the hook…

How fucked up is the entire concept of The Parent Trap? These parents have twins but want a divorce so they decide their best course of action is to just each take one and never speak to each other again.

chokalingam:

People calling Jane mean/rude.

People complaining about Jane standing up for her aunt and calling Emma out for being the bitch that she was.

People totally ignoring the fact that Emma was 100% wrong for what she did, and that Jane was right about everything she said.

Because telling kids that they can love whoever they want is TOO TERRIFYING AND CONFUSING. But showing them murder, execution, death, frightening images, war, and bullying is just fine.

Not to mention 101 Dalmatians where a crazy woman wanted to SKIN 99 PUPPIES

Episode 64, Part 1:  Jane FairfaxIt seems as though people are really misunderstanding Jane and her side of the story.  I feel sorry for her, because her frustration at the situation is well-founded, and people are calling her a “bitch” for “yelling at her boss”.How else could she get through to Emma?  Jane is just a private person, and though Emma’s tried to get information out of her (what’s Frank Churchill like?  Who gave you the computer and flowers?  Are you seeing someone?), she doesn’t really make the attempt to know Jane and spend time with Jane. Most of Emma’s information of Jane, in book and in EA universe, comes from Maddy.  So if I were Jane, I would have reacted the same way. And I’m sure, POSITIVE, even, that Frank got all sorts of hell from her. Got everything she gave to Emma and then some.  I wish we could have seen that, so that we know to what lengths Frank will go to make amends.
