The opening lines make it clear that this fic is a witty, cheerfully anachronistic homage to Charlotte Brontë’s classic tale of mystery and romance. “Vince Noiyre” is a gender-bending male governess (“jobs are scarce enough for an electro-ponce-slash-classic-frontman”) who brings a lot of baggage — literal and metaphorical — to Thornfield, where he meets the brooding, riding-crop-wielding master of the house, “Howard Moonchester”; a hirsute housekeeper, Bollo; and his charge, Naboo, who is less interested in his lessons than in gaining access to whoever — or whatever — is kept locked up in the attic.maestro1123
does justice to both the plot of Jane Eyre

characters. Take, for example, her version of the scene where the lovelorn governess draws a self-portrait and the likeness of an apparent rival for the master’s affections.
