  3. We Think This Is The First Set Photo Of Matt Smith In Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

    Hooray?

    We have no idea where this came from—possibly a personal Instagram account of a crew member that leaked somehow, it's hard to say—but judging by the costumes and the Matt Smithness of this image, we're gonna go out on a limb and say it's from the set of the Pride and Prejudice and Zombies movie. You know, the one that Lena Headey and Charles Dance are going to be in? So that's pretty awesome.

  4. UK Man Jailed For Tweeting Rape Threats In Response To Jane Austen Banknote Campaign

    Badly done, asshole. Badly done, indeed.

    Trigger warning for threats and harassment. When Peter Nunn launched what the prosecution called an online "campaign of hatred" last July to protest Jane Austen's image being placed on the £10 note, the 33-year-old seemed to feel he was immune from punishment.

  7. Guys, There’s a Paper That Describes the Relationship Between Lizzie Bennet and Mr. Darcy Using Math

    Peanut Butter and Chocolate

    "A mathematical model is proposed for interpreting the love story between Elizabeth and Darcy portrayed by Jane Austen in the popular novel Pride and Prejudice. The analysis shows that the story is characterized by a sudden explosion of sentimental involvements, revealed by the existence of a saddle-node bifurcation in the model. The paper is interesting not only because it deals for the first time with catastrophic bifurcations in romantic relation-ships, but also because it enriches the list of examples in which love stories are described through ordinary differential equations…. A series of small discoveries can give rise to a sudden turning-point in the development of a love story. In mathematical terms these turning-points are nothing but so-called catastrophes, which, in the case of Pride and Prejudice, are technically revealed by the existence of a saddle-node bifurcation.” — Discover has a lingo-laced excerpt from the paper "A mathematical model of 'pride and prejudice'" ("as a consequence of the letter the upper saddle-node bifurcation curve is crossed from below and this crossing implies a discontinuous jump from x’ to x”’..."), plus a graph. A graph. It's so beautiful. Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?

  9. Jane Austen MMO Ever, Jane Promises Social Strategy And Probable Scandal

    Cautiously Optimistic

    “What are you writing about this week?” my friend asked me over breakfast this morning. I sipped my tea and smiled. “A Jane Austen MMO.” My friend, who has a master’s degree in comparative lit and years of hardcore raiding under her belt, raised her eyebrows. Skeptically. “No, seriously,” I said. “It’s a thing. It cleared its Kickstarter goal by almost $10,000 a few days ago. It’s got a playable prototype — well, okay, more of a proof of concept. Lots of bugs, not a lot to do. But I tried it out, and, honestly…I think it could be pretty cool.”
