Prince Albert
He is Prince Charming! Only he knows how to reach a part of you that no one else can see. He can hear you through the silence- in a word, Albert is your perfect prince.

Mostly B’s:
Gilbert Blythe
Even though he calls you carrots, no one else could have a heart so pure as Gilbert does. From your first meeting, he has loved you- and always will.

Mostly C’s:
Mr. Darcy
 Truly, can there be anyone quite so great as the peerless Mr. Darcy? He will do anything for you- save you from an uncertain future, and even restore your family’s good name.

Mostly D’s:
Mr. Thornton
Fierce and proud as he may seem at first, Mr. Thornton is honest and true. While he was once rough, he became calm and gentle by his love for you.

Mostly E’s:
Roger Hamley
Sweetness itself! Roger holds you in the highest respect and esteem. While he once professed love for another, it was always you that he loved!

Mostly F’s:
Carver Doone
Oh dear. Carver is the worst husband that anyone could possibly ever have. He is mean, proud, and only says he loves you because of your beauty and your money!

Great Quiz

I laughed so hard once I finished this quiz because I tied for almost all of the letters! I got 3 A's, 3 B's, 4 C's, 4 D's, and 4 E's! So I tied for C, D, and E. Since Mr. Darcy is one of my favorite character's from a novel, I will just pick him as my furture husband type! (After he is no longer prideful and arrogant of course!) This was a fun quiz! Thanks for posting it!

This quiz is the result of a week-long sleepover with a friend who loves to laugh. We had just watched Cranford (both series) and Lorna Doone, so we wanted to do something silly! 
This is what came out of it! I'm writing a similar one called 'The Beau'.... and guess who's one the results? Sherlock Holmes! :)

I got Roger Hamley. Enlighten me, who exactly is he? Anyway, here's my results:





















Please don't laugh at me, but I think i'd rather have Gilbert Blythe if not for the fact that he's married and has two kids. So someone Gilbert-ish, maybe. I was actually thinking of one of my male-friends when i was taking this quiz. Again, please don't laugh.

Oh for the times when I felt invincible.


You got ROGER? He's the hero from Wives and Daughters! Oh, he's the best... here's a picture of him:

Roger is an absoloute DUCK and he's the best. Besides Gilbert and Albert, of course. And I'm not laughing at all!

I got mostly e's, but I was pretty close on b's, because I answered with more than one letter on\ some. I overlap a lot. :)

I have hated the words and I have loved them, and I hope I have made them right. --The Book Thief


Mostly B's and so Gilbert Blythe did I score. Which made me laugh because I hated Gilbert when I first read the books, as did Anne and so I will probably do with my future husband!

Wonderful quiz, Marlene!
