There’s a well-known joke about how the WB and Disney Princes and Mr. Darcy have ruined anyone who wants to meet the man of their dreams. We’ve been set up with unrealistic expectations; how are we supposed to get past DARCY?
There’s truth in it, I suppose. But I’m basing my truth on the fact that reading Robert Jordan at 14 was a huge mistake for my love life. Have you guys met Matrim Cauthon? Have you? Because if you have, I don’t know how you could possibly be happy with anything else.
