Jane Austen writes about what she has seen and experienced. She has written about leisured middle class people. She avoids romance emotion and passions. She deals with love, marriage, money, class and the first impressions of the people in her novels. Let us now examine the treatment of these themes in Emma. There is no illicit, passionate love in Emma. Love here is justified by reason and self-control. Jane Austen has distrusted romance. She does not approve of romance which does not culminate into marriage. Therefore, she disparages pure romance and elopement. She approves of the love between Jane and Bingley, between Elizabeth and Darcy, and between Emma and George Knightley which culminate into marriage. She does not approve of the elopement of Lydia with Wickham in Pride and Prejudice, and of Maria with Henry Crawford in Mansfield Park. But such elopements are denounced. Lydia and Wickham must marry before they are allowed to live in society. Romance in Jane Austen's novels does not always culminate into marriages. Such romance is criticized.

Elton to Emma, because Elton aspires not to Emma's efforts of match-making because love cannot be arranged. That is why match-making business of Emma fails miserably. Jane Austen condemns Frank's flirtation with Emma. She condemns flirtation because it does not aim at marriage. Emma is a novel about love and marriage. Throughout the novel one reads about love. Love is the axis on which the plot of the novel turns. We read about the love between Harriet and Robert Martin, Harriet and Elton, Harriet and George Knightley, Emma and Frank and Emma and George Knightley. There are four marriages performed in the novel-those of Miss Taylor with Mr. Weston, of Miss Augusta Hawkins with Mr. Elton, of Miss Harriet with Robert Martin and of Miss Emma with George Knightley. The fifth marriage is in the offing-that of Miss Jane Fairfax and Frank Churchill. Thus the novel ends happily with the marriage bells. Jane Austen does not approve of the first impressions. The first impressions must be confirmed by mature judgment of experience before they are accepted. Most of Jane Austen's heroines find themselves, committing mistakes. They delude themselves. Pride and Prejudice deals with the folly of trusting first impressions. Emma deals with the theme of self-delusion. Emma boasts of understanding the characters of other persons, but she grows gradually painfully aware of her first impressions and first judgments. If Emma had worked on her first impression, she should have married Frank, not Mr. Knightley. It is only when Emma's first impressions are matured by her experience and reason that she marries Mr.
George Knightley at the end of the novel. Money is always related to love and marriage in Jane Austen's novels. Jane Austen is a Marxist even before Karl Marx was born. She always emphasizes two qualities of her male characters, their singleness and their income. Her characters are mostly materialistic in an acquisitive society. She herself believes that it is wrong to marry for money, but it is silly to marry without it. The characters of Jane Austen always seek money while seeking their life partners. Money is always involved in love and marriage in Emma, Mr. Elton wants to marry Emma for her wealth. Emma does not approve of Harriet's marriage with Robert Martin because he is not wealthy. Mrs. Elton always boasts of wealth. "But what is distance, Mr. Weston, to people of large fortune". Jane Austen writes about the fortune of Miss Churchill that it "bore no proportion to the family-estate." She writes about the Westons that they "lived beyond their income, but still it was nothing in comparison of Enscombe." She writes about Mr. Weston that he "had made his fortune, bought his house, and obtained his wife" She writes about the "landed property of Hartfield" that it "certainly was unconsiderable, being but a sort of notch in the Donwell Abbey estate, to which all of the rest of Highbury belongs."

Related with money is the class-consciousness in the novels of Jane Austen. The characters of Jane Austen are always conscious of their class, rank and position. Emma seems to be declining the invitation of the Coles because they are inferior, she does not want to marry because there is no male character in her neighborhood who may be equal to her rank. She does not approve of Harriet's match with Robert Martin because he is a farmer. She suspends the doctrine of rank only in the case of Harriet. She tells Harriet, while persuading her to marry Elton, that matches of great disparity have taken place. She wishes that Mr. Martin's social status was a little nearer her own. But as Mr. Martin is, he does not rank her curiosity. After Elton's declaration of love to Emma, Emma speaks of "the very great inequality" of which he is sensible in regard to Harriet. She feels angry that Elton "should suppose himself her equal in connection or mind." Jane Austen, while comparing Mrs. Elton and Harriet, writes that "setting aside the 10,000 £ it did not appear that she was at all Harriet's superior." Mrs. Elton seems to derive her superiority from the fact that her elder sister had married a wealthy gentleman who lived near Bristol and kept two carriages. Harriet says to Emma that her lover is superior to Mr. Hello, Viewers! Besides being the Founder and Owner of this website, I am a Government Officer.

Scott Shelly ( Hangul:셸리 ) is one of the female protagonists in the webtoon. She begins a one-sided relationship with Jay at the start of the series but as the story progress they have a mutual crush on each other and as of chapter 378 they are in a relationship. Shelly is the only female member of the Humming Bird Crew. Because she stayed at England before coming to Korea her personality is perceived as very headstrong. She does not like it when people talk badly about her friends, especially Jay. Shelly also has a lot of stamina and strength, she can keep up with the group's pace when racing and can actually send people flying with her punch (Although that may be for comedic reasons) but never got into the street fights with the guys of the crew. When she was hit on in her first appearance on the series she refused with a lot of sass. Mia described her as someone who can confidently express her thoughts and feelings. Although her words are harsh, it is because she never sugar coated her words with her friends. And with Jay, Shelly is very clingy and flirtatious. She has very foreign features: pale skin, her eyes actually look more mint green in color than blue, blond wavy hair. It is known later in the series that she has a tattoo in the side of her arm near the wrist that reads out "temet nosce" or "Know Thyself". At school she wears her uniform usually without the red vest and both wears the skirt and pants.
She is often seen wearing high-end brand clothing, but also occasionally wearing street wear and tomboyish clothes. When riding her bike, she usually wears a jacket and helmet with the same color as her eyes or the Hummingbird crew's hood. She is tall, with long thin legs, a small waist and a bigger bust. Not much is known about Shelly, but it is established that she is from England and she requested to transfer to Sunny High School because of Jay. It was told in an early episode (Ep. 27) that she will be in Korea for one semester. Shelly is the granddaughter of Sunny High School's principal, Nick. When Shelly was a kid, she didn't want to get married and promised Nick that she will just live with him forever, which caused Nick to think that Shelly is not interested to guys until she got interested in Jay. That also caused the over protectiveness of her grandfather. Jay saw what happened and chased the thieves to get her purse back. She refused on taking him to the hospital but Jay refused. She picked up his student ID that had fallen to the ground and, motivated by her encounter with Jay, called her grandfather, asking him to let her attend Sunny High School. Her second meeting with Jay was in their classroom. She kissed him out of the blue and the gossip that Shelly and Jay were in a relationship quickly spread around the school.
When Jay, Dom and Minu got suspended, Shelly visited them and scolded Dom and Minu badly about how Jay got caught with their actions. Jay got pissed and told her to screw off, she ended up crying and running away. When Jay was about to say sorry, he got a pink rose from Minu, saying that he should give it to her. He couldn't and Shelly went on saying that she'll forgive him if he became her boyfriend for a week and Jay agreed. She joined Hummingbird as the only female on the team, she continued to flirt with Jay and when Jay was teaching Mia how to ride a bike, she kept on intervening and wanting him to teach her even though she knows how. On a special episode, Shelly was seen riding a bike in Jay's neighborhood. Minu and Kay noticed her, Kay was thinking of who might Shelly go out with and ended up being shocked that it was his brother. In the last scene, Jay and Shelly are resting after riding their bike together, and she comments that Jay suits biking more than studying. The Preliminaries for the League of Street has started, only Dom and Jay were able to race at the first two rounds. After that, they found out that Jay's birthday was near and planned to celebrate it. She didn't showed up at school on his birthday because she was the one who prepared the gift that they got for him.
When the boys with the worried June except Jay planned to give Jay a strong alcoholic drink, they didn't expect Shelly to drink it, thinking it was juice. They are dumb-founded and later on, a drunk Shelly came closer to Jay and told her how she was hurt by his actions and proceeding to kiss him the second time. They pulled Shelly of Jay who was already littered with kiss marks. Mia was the one who brought Shelly home, when she was sober enough, Mia asked her if she liked Jay which she answered yes. Mia told her how she envied her for being able to confidently express her thoughts and feelings. Shelly answered that she doesn't understand Mia's concern and told her an advice to start believing in herself more and learning to love herself. This pushed Mia to contact the modeling agency that reached out to her. Before the race, Shelly was being hit on by a member of the Bullet Crew who will be racing against them. The glasses guy kept on hitting on her even when she's denying him. Vinny came to her rescue and punched the guy when he didn't stop.
That led to the glasses guy to take drugs to have a revenge against the Hummingbird Crew. Shelly took the lead until he passes the baton to June. As the race ended, she tried to kiss Jay in his sleep but he moved and she wasn't able to do so. She also took the test with Minu and Dom since, in a sense, she is still a student at Sunny High. When Mia was modeling, a bunch of girls kept on talking about her, gossiping about Mia like dating an old guy or having a sugar daddy to be able to model. Shelly obviously tried to help her. Yuna and Shelly later on went to Mia's house in hopes that they could get her to come to school. On the way riding a bus, a guy came up on her behind and was hitting on her, she shut him down while cursing, very contrasting of her appearance. When Yuna, Mia and Shelly were talking at the park near Mia's house, Shelly started saying something harsh to Mia, although it is a way to actually let Mia see what's happening beyond her room which she choose to lock herself with. Yuna reprimanded Shelly, saying she was too harsh and Mia broke down but then was silent at what Shelly said. After that talk, the three of them came at Heri's bike shop so that Mia can say thank you.
