Back in my Zutara shipping phase years ago (
OH HUSH, I WAS YOUNG AND FRUSTRATED)
a lot of the other Zutara fans read a lot of Pride and Prejudice or Jane Austen novels, which included a lot of the supposed delicious sexual tension and witty banter that most of the fans enjoy.
So I picked up the book/s again (hadn’t since highschool) to read it through Zutara goggles.
I realized I was probably a poor reader because I couldn’t get through it.
I EXPECTED A FULL ONSLAUGHT OF DELUXE TSUNDERE BUT INSTEAD I GOT YE OLDE ENGLISH HOUSE PARTIES.
I need to get used to reading like a ‘normal’ person again.
