The whole fighting with canes thing reminds me of one of my greatest literary disappointments of recent years: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.  I have no problem whatsoever with the idea of re-writing P&P to contain zombies, oh no.  What drove me absolutely batty was that the writer used Asian martial arts, when there were perfectly good British martial arts he could have used instead! 

I mean, come on; obviously, Darcy would kill zombies with a walking stick, or punch their heads off with skills learnt at Jackson's.  And with all those ____shire regiments floating around, it's not as if sabers were exactly unobtainable.  Harrumph.  Elizabeth don't need no steenken' katanas.

(Also, my Shark with a Freakin' Laser Beam T-shirt arrived in the mail today.  Heeeeeeee.)

Except then they wouldn't have had the delicious parallels between governesses and ninjas.

Me too, I love me some Mr. Darcy. I actually have a picture of him up at my desk. Now I just need a picture of Sicarius. *swoon*
