Double posting because I forgot to add the Gillenormand vindication I had in mind. No, he’s not cruel, nor vindictive or bitchy! Remember, at this point the poor man is ready to accept everything from his grand-son just to see him healthy and happy and at his side! In French “ceci est bon” can be us...

Enjolras et ses lieutenants is inconsistant in more than one way. First, there's the "Feuilly, n'est-ce pas?" If the n'est-ce pas were at the end of the sentence it could be read as a form of politeness but been placed were it is, it can only mean that Enjolras isn't 100% sure of Feuilly's...

Thanks! When I first read your "try Shakespeare" I was a bit distrustful but that can actually work pretty well. The lgrammar has to be more straighforward and simple but the idea of replacing "no matter how hot she is it's not a good idea for you to try to approach her" by somet...

Hi, Colonel Despard I opened this thread because I wanted to say hello to you (even if it is a zillion years late), and I find that Cordelier is also back! I'm ashamed to admit that I never heard of colonel despard before I read your username, but from what I've seen of you I'm sure we'll get along ...

I've not been around much lately, but I agree with those who said that no public "reward"? is needed. We all want to keep the forum running, after all.

help with non-lesmis fic?

well, yes, it's a little bit shameful to be reappearing in the forum after such a long absence with a post totally unrealeated to Les Mis but I've been so inmersed in another fictional world that my head scarcelly had any room left for LM. The thing is I've been sitting for a long while in front of ...

Oh, but Pie is a Combeferre girl. And Combeferre would not drink at the barricade. anyway, I really don't think we can get to drunk on absinthe at the Procope prices :-(( now, I am thinking that maybe I could bring with me to Paris some "real" stuff, you know, the kind of absinthe that is ...

I'm in for the theatre, the pantheon-luxembourg walk, and the Procope (lunch or dinner). Dinner has maybe more charm, but the idea of drinking too much absinthe and watching the show in not such a sobber state is strongly appealing aswell. Anyway, lunch or dinner I am ready to make honour to my nick...

Yes, I remember our conversation now! I've been away for so long that I've forgotten everything... I want to buy this http://www.amazon.fr/Catherine-M%C3%A9dicis-Ivan-Cloulas/dp/2213007381/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1250081998&sr=1-5 from amazon.fr, but I don't know about any good bo...

Mmmm.... french renaissance. The first half of the century is ok but what I love is the second part, with Catherine de Medicis, the religious wars, the 3 henris, the king's mignons...

I'm most into the 1st third of the 17th but of course you can't understand that without knowing quite a bit about at least the 2nd half of the 16th, so I've been and still am reading about it.
Why? Are you working with that period aswell?

Heh. Does it freak you out when I say I can't hear the difference, except when the Jean Valjean sings "pain"? Not really. There are a lot of english accents I can't hear when people are singing. When speaking it is easier, but I don't catch them many times. It's extremely subtle for me. B...

Oh, God... (Beware: politicaly incorrect post down here) Someone around here remembers how I keep repeating that I don't like color-blind casting because it destroys my suspension of disbelieve? And how after sitting through Edward Baruwa's Enjolras I discovered that there was something much more de...

Hello everybody, I am back!!! :-) Or so I hope. I know I've been kind of disappeared, but it was partly that I've been away, partly that I've been too busy (and I still am) with another century to have enough brain cells to spare for les mis, partly that my LM fangirlness is awfully intermitent, par...
