Welcome to my blog and the penultimate entry in the #JurassicAusten reference library! This afternoon we examine the inhabitants of that creepy pit of vipers known as Mansfield Park.
Common Name: Fanny Price
Description: Seen by most as a boring, timid creature, little Fannyopteryx was plain, and often in poor health.
Range: F. minima had a wider range of habitat than expected, beginning her life in Portsmouth and traveling to the vast, intimidating Mansfield Park.
Behaviors: Often seen as shy, retiring and passive – at times, even passive-aggressive – F. minima could spew judgment when backed against the wall and pressured to do what she believed she should not. Fannyopteryx was a master of camouflage, often blending into the woodwork to avoid falling prey to T. acribum. This Austenosaur enjoyed nature and empty school rooms.
Mating Habits: Fanny employed a risky strategy of pining for her ideal mate, waiting for him to notice her, even when a more attractive and aggressive female arrived on the scene. Eventually, Fanny’s superior moral fiber won his devotion, if not his passion – which was lukewarm even at its best.
Common Name: Mrs. Norris
Description: An aggressive and predatory Austenosaur, T. acribum sported sharp teeth to rip and tear her prey to shreds, and arms too short to allow productive use of her hands.
Range: Mrs. Norris resided in a small nest near her friends, but was often seen skulking about the rambling rooms of Mansfield Park, pilfering items such as jellies, drapes, and sewing materials.
Behaviors: Tyrannorris was a driving force in the downfall of Mariadon, by encouraging the production of Lovers’ Vows. Mrs. Norris’s activities were often characterized by spending others’ money and feeding off the misery of Fannyopteryx – in little, painful bites.
Mating Habits: Eww
