A little romance for Monday


Some North & South fanart done in variety of painting styles/mediums and photo effects courtesy of BeFunky. Today we have some portraits of Margaret, too.

    • Fascinating. John Thornton would certainly recognize some of the concepts, such as the “moral dignity of work” and the mill they showed would be enough like his that he would know what it was really like when it was operating. To me the notion that all this was accomplished with coal-fired steam engines is just amazing, as is the terrible cost in human lives. This, I think, is what so shocked Margaret, shielded as she was until she saw the harsh side of Milton — raw, dark, hard-fought, without the delicacies to which she was accustomed. Yet John and Margaret showed that it was possible for the two to reach an understanding and an appreciation of each other.
