Re: Ignorance and Irony - Chapter 3 (Part 2)

When I started, Kitty didn’t have a larger role, but as I re-write chapters, I found she is playing a larger role than originally intended. To be honest: I had not thought of the ramifications of whether or not Kitty did actually get involved with Lt. Sanderson. Originally, he was only going to be a crush. Now he isn’t. Don't worry though, I did think of the same thing. The Lieutenant plays a larger role in my story than in the original and is involved in a little surprise twist (and possibly his own short story), that hopefully will satisfy you! The only problem: it is at the end of the story.

I also don’t believe that Mr. Bennet would get involved at this stage. To him, Kitty is becoming less silly, but she is still immature in his mind. Why would he interrupt a harmless flirt if he felt the officer was not taking it seriously?

Remember, at this point, there is no official courtship; whereas Mrs. Bennet is attempting to force a marriage between Elizabeth and Mr. Collins. If Mr. Bennet is not stepping in the middle of that, why would he get involved in Kitty’s situation which (to him) is less likely to happen? Mr. Bennet isn’t oblivious to the girls’ lives or actions – he is just chooses not to get involved if he can help it. Look at Lydia: he didn’t get involved until he had no other choice.

Hope that answered your question!
