Mary Bennett, Vampyre Slayer

Jim MacDonald over at Making Light has put together a tour de force of early-1800s-literature-as-Buffy-tie-in that has made me giggle. Or perhaps it’s the insomnia (brought on by a nap much too late in the afternoon, though I’m sure I’ll be able to sleep again in a little while). Thinking of a girl rolling around beating up vampires in an empire-waist dress just feels like the epitome of incongruity, English manners versus girl power.
