I had hoped that the third Anne movie/mini-series would have been about the union of the two "bosom friends"....clearly, I just needed to look deeper into the first series subtext!

I thought that was Xena and Gabrielle in period costume 'til I read the caption...

Oh! Swoon... I think Anne was possibly my first crush. That irresistible marriage of fierce independence and ginger hair... Fabulous choice.

"Indeed I will," sobbed Diana, "and I'll never have another bosom friend--I don't want to have. I couldn't love anybody as I love you."

"Oh, Diana," cried Anne, clasping her hands, "do you love me?"

"Why, of course I do. Didn't you know that?"

Siiiiiiiigh.

? Who?

May said...

OMG! They totally did!

Rocket said...

Seriously thought I was the only one who though they should have been/were a couple.

Oh Anne...

Respect your DIVAS! said...

very frightening, but probably true...they were kindred spirts after all...

Of course! BOSOM friends! My only bosom friends have been friends whose bosoms I liked to touch. Ah, I love those books/movies. They inspired years of angst/longing. And I think they're why I'm a teacher today.

PS--Welcome back to the internet!

I recently watched the marathon on PBS and I totally saw the connection between them right away! They were doing subtext long before we had ever heard of Xena and Gabby!

Oh Ms. Snarker you never fail to amaze me. I'm a closet Anne Shirley, et al fan. I've seen all the movies at least 3 times, "it's kismet". Such bosom friends forever, and they totally hooked up.

Norma Desmond said...

OMG, TOTES hooked up! (sorry, I was doing my best high schooler impression... I fear I failed)

Totally.
(And Emily and Isle, too).

Anne was one of my first crushes as well. Red hair is still my favourite!

huskhull said...

I'm not so sure about Anne and Diana, but I have to agree with mousse that Emily and Isle were meant to be together. Teddy was way too moony.

OMG! I was just saying that this week and everyone else was like, wtf? Awesome!
