Marianne is still sick.

First she is ordinarily sick for a few days. Sick enough to need the apothecary (who is NOT a doctor; use of apothecaries was quite common in Austen's time). Sick enough to be contagious, so the Palmers decide to leave with their baby. That's right - they are leaving their own house.

Then she is seriously, distressingly sick for a couple of days. So sick that Colonel Brandon makes a run to Barton Cottage to fetch Mrs Dashwood. So sick that Mrs Jennings and even Elinor begin to worry she won't make it until Mrs Dashwood gets there.

Then she starts to get better.

And then Willoughby arrives.

I defy you not to turn the page.

Dun dun dun!!!!

Sorry I haven't commented much on these SnS entries recently - I am enjoying them immensely but ran out of words to say so after Nanoing furiously!

That is indeed the proper theme music for this chapter ending!

How did you make out with NaNo? Did you enjoy the process?

Yes - it was like very good exercise. It was my 5th year this year (200K!).

Well, I turned the page. I'll comment on what I read when you post about it.

All I have to say about this chapter is: I love Mrs. Jennings and Colonel Brandon! Srsly.

I am so glad to have a fellow Mrs Jennings-lover along for the ride. I'm glad you love Colonel Brandon, too, but LOTS of people love him. He's just so . . . correct. And good.

Well, I love Mrs. Jennings more than Colonel Brandon. She's just so kind. And, even though she's convinced Marianne will die, she's very useful in this chapter. It's nice to see her be useful.
