"Costumes are also used to show Mr. Darcy’s evolution as he comes to love Elizabeth Bennet and let go of his snobbery. His costume had a series of stages. The first time we see him he’s at Meryton, where he has a very stiffly tailored jacket on, and he’s quite contained and rigid. He stays in that rigid form for the first part of the film.
By the time we get to the proposal that goes wrong in the rain, we move to a similar cut, but a much softer fabric. And then later he’s got a completely different cut of coat, not interlined, and he wears it undone.
The nth degree is him walking through the mist in the morning, completely undressed by 18th-century standards. It’s absolutely unlikely, but then Lizzie’s in her nightie, so what can you say?”

In this upcoming issue, I have this scene with Monet, and I really wanted her to look strong… not comic book superhero-strong, but real life strong, and so I sent artist Clay Mann this shot of Camille LeBlanc-Bazinet:

Published, you-pay-money-for-it Pride and Prejudice fanfiction that is clearly inspired by the 2005 movie drives me crazy. Not because I think that movie is terrible (though I do) and not because I am an elitist who is internally policing what you like (though I am) but because the movie is not public domain.
I mean, okay, I am not THAT up on copyright laws or anything, but it seems to me that you should not be able to charge money for a novel you wrote based on a nine-year-old film. You should not be able to transcribe scenes from a recent film into a novel unless you are writing the official novelization of the film.
Something that is public domain may freely be used for derivative works, like fanfic. And again, I am not THAT up on copyright laws, but I assume a 200 year old book that comes free with like every eReader ever is public domain.
Put a number in my askbox and I’ll tell you my thoughts on the trope you’ve asked me about and if I’ve written it myself, or if I ever would
