Imagine if Sirius could have raised Harry and when he sent a howler to him in his second year for driving the car to school.
"I’M NOT EVEN MAD, I’M ACTUALLY IMPRESSED. MERLIN’S BLOODY BALLS I’M PROUD."
And Remus in the background “SIRIUS NO.”

So I am in a Jane Austen and Film class, and our final project is an adaptation of a Jane Austen novel into a screenplay. We are allowed to do whatever we want with it, basically, so I opted to go for the Pride & Prejudice/Pacific Rim crossover. Because JANE AUSTEN AND GIANT ROBOTS AND MONSTERS. Do you have any suggestions for jaeger names? The two jaegers that need naming belong to Lizzie & Jane, and then Darcy & Bingley.
Gosh I’m sorry honey, I know literally zero about Jane Austen! Can anyone else help?
Considering how important places/estates are in P&P Why not uses home names, Netherfield, Pemberly etc…There is a long tradition of place representing psyche in fiction and Pemberly is arguably representative of Mr. Darcy, which is why Elizabeth falls in love with him after sees his grounds. In the context of what you’re planning it would make sense for her to be beguiled by the way he pilots his giant robot. Sample dialogue:
Jane: Will you tell me how long you have loved him?
Elizabeth: It has been coming on so gradually, that I hardly know when it began. But I believe I must date it from my first seeing his beautiful piloting of Pemberley Striker.”
Alternatively you could use the way the British named their ships at the time as a template. Gipsy Danger is named after a type of plane engine invented in the twenties and used in WWII (this does not make the name less side-eye inducing, but that’s the why of it) so in a P&P version it would make sense to incorporate military things from the Regency era. This could be ship names or technology e.g. I think a totally slamming name would Dauntless Hotshot. Hot shot or heated shot was when cannon rounds were heated and then fired at ships. Said ships being wooden caught fire. This was a really effective way to down ships, but limited to being fired from land because it was too dangerous to do on one’s own ship.
Hope this helps!

Love also emailed Fan Expo and said the reply she received was “inadequate” and felt like a complete brush off. Pirko had a more worrying response:
They stated that their attendees and their team were adults, and it was all a bit of fun that people wouldn’t take seriously. A direct quote from the email ’We thought about clarifying that cuddles must come with consent, but we thought if we’re always putting the rules in front of the fun – well that hurts the spirit of Fan Expo as much as the people that try to abuse our rules.” They also stated that they hadn’t gotten around to putting their harassment policy up yet, but had made it a priority.
Reminding people not to harass other attendees only makes the convention less “fun” for those who were inclined to harass in the first place. For everyone else, it reassures them they can have real fun in a safe environment with fellow fans.
And this is why I’ll never attend a Fan Expo.
Because everyone can do that and triggers don’t exist, right Critic?
This reminds me of those a-hole teachers in elementary school who told me that nobody can really “hurt your feelings,” you decide to be hurt. So crying because kids were teasing me about my name, or squashing caterpillars near me, or loudly eating greasy meat and getting all up in my face knowing I was a vegetarian, and calling gay people pedophiles, I was crying because I was letting them get to me.
See it’s an easy out, because it shifts the blame to the people being targeted or offended or upset. It’s their fault for not “taking a joke,” it’s their fault for being “too uptight.” No need to examine the cause, just focus on the crying people and tell them to knock it off already.
This is also advice that people with depression and anxiety get all the time, including from therapists.
