Which Austen character are you?

Which Austen character are you?

A fun quiz for Halloween. When you’ve found out, leave your answer in the comments for a chance to win a copy of Mr Darcy, Vampyre! Closing date November 7th.

1) You notice that some of your companion’s teeth appear to be long and sharp. Do you think:

a) He must be a vampyre.
b) Perhaps he should visit the dentist.
c) Jane has lovely teeth, doesn’t she, mother? We are so proud of Jane’s lovely teeth.
d) Lord! Those teeth are worse than Denny’s!

2) You notice a bat outside the window. Do you think:

a) Oh, no, my companion isn’t here, he must have turned into a bat!
b) I’d better close the window.
c) That reminds me of the time when Jane first saw a bat, doesn’t it, mother? I say JANE SAW A BAT ONCE, DIDN’T SHE, MOTHER?
d) If I catch that bat, I could scare all the officers. Lord, fun!

3) Your ship is about to be attacked by pirates, but they suddenly turn tail and run. Do you think:

a) There must be a vampyre on board the ship.
b) They were frightened off by the ship’s guns.
c) Jane was nearly drowned once when she was on a ship, or was it a boat, let me fetch her letter and read it to you.
d) Thank goodness there are plenty of officers on board.

4) Your companion’s friend shows you some very old clothes Do you think:

a) She must be 500! She’s one of the undead!
b) They are very beautiful, and very well preserved.
c) Jane had a lovely shawl, a present from Mr Dixon, it was ever such a lovely shawl, all different colours and she was so careful of it. She put it away ever so carefully but when she took it out again it was all holes, wasn’t it mother? Jane’s shawl, I say it was full of holes.
d) She ought to ask her father for a larger allowance.

5) You are visiting a castle when it is stormed by an angry mob. Do you think:

a) The villagers are rising up against the undead!
b) This is how the revolution started in France, it seems the unrest is spreading.
c) Thank goodness Jane is staying with the Campbells. Just look what the mob has done to mother’s spectacles.
d) Lord, what a time we’re having! Just look at that peasant over there, he’s very handsome, I’ve always liked a man in a blue coat.

6) You go to a masked ball where you start to see strange things. Do you think:

a) Someone is tampering with my mind.
b) I must have had too much champagne.
c) I think I must need some spectacles like mother. Jane will probably need them too as she gets older, but not yet, she has such lovely eyes. Such pretty, pretty, eyes.
d) Lord, I’ve never had so much fun in my life.

7) You learn something terrible about someone close to you. Do you think:

a) I knew there were monsters. I was right all along.
b) I must think about what to do.
c) I must be very stupid, I really must have been very stupid not to have seen it before, Jane would have seen it straight away.
d) Lord, what a lark.

Mostly a's: You are Catherine Morland.
Mostly b's: You are Elinor Dashwood.
Mostly c's: You are Miss Bates.
Mostly d's. You are Lydia Bennet.


  1. Haha, I'm Catherine Morland :-o

  2. I'm Elinor. Fun quiz!

  3. Oops, that wasn't meant to be Anonymous, sorry.

  4. I'm Elinor, kind of surprised, I would have thought I'm more of a Catherine.

  5. Not only am I Elinor, but I deduced who all the others were too. Yeah, clever clogs, I know.

  6. So funny, Mandy. I'm Elinor - can't remember who she is.
    Hope the book's selling loads - deserves to.

    Couldn't get this to post, so I'm trying previewing first and hoping that works. Here goes.

    Lol, I'm Miss Bates. Not really, though, I'm Elinor! Great quiz.

  8. I'm Elinor! Rats, I wanted to be someone more fun! Fun quiz and great book!

  9. I would appear to be an Elinor! (one of my favourite characters).

  10. Hmmm, it seems I am entirely too sensible. Elinor Dashwood.

    (Also, it is my birthday on Wednesday, hint, hint!)

  11. Cute quiz, I'm an Elinor too. Miss Bates' answers were hilarious "Just look what the mob has done to mother’s spectacles." LOL


  12. I'm Elinor! (With a large dash of Catherine mixed in).

    You forgot the question:
    Your biology partner sparkles in sunlight and fixes you with his amber eyes, what do you think?
    A) :/
    B) Explosion of glitter in Art class, obviously.
    C) :/
    D) :/

  13. I'm Elinor too! Whee! Of the four, I'd best like to be Elinor - although of course Catherine gets Mr Tilney - still, I like being Elinor.

  14. Elinor I am - and am proud, Miss Dashwood is a noble character.

  15. Dear Amanda, I bought some of your books at Amazon, and looking forward to receive them here in Brazil.

    I hope Mr. Darcy Vampyre has the same success as the others.


  16. Unsurprisingly, I'm Elinor. The other options were hilarious, though, especially Miss Bates!

  17. I'm Elinor too. What a funny quiz you created.

  18. I should have known...I am Elinor! I would love to be Catherine Moreland but do not have the imagination...just thank heavens I am not Lydia Bennett!! Wonderful quiz!

  19. I'm Catherine Morland. I'm quite surprised actually. I was certain I'm a more of Elinor Dashwood. At least I'm not Lydia Bennet...

  20. I am very relieved that I am Elinor, although it was not by a great margin. I could also have been Catherine (as long as I get to have Henry Tilney!)

  21. I'm Elinor, with a little bit of Catherine thrown in. Loved Miss Bates' answers. :)

  22. haha this was fun! I'm Elinor Dashwood :)

  23. I'm Elinor Dashwood.
