Anne Shirley and Diana Barry totally hooked up.
? Too young to understand...Amanda
kindred spirits forever!
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...
and anne is still frickin hot...yum
I loved that series of books so much..thanks for the memories :)
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.
Huh!?!...oh yeah...Anne of the Green Gables!
OMG! They totally did!
Seriously thought I was the only one who though they should have been/were a couple.Oh Anne...
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!
it's canadian drama! i also like matthew and marilla.
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.
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!
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!
thanks! I needed that total crack up.
