Re: Le Cafe Mu(in)sain

AURELIA! I've missed you! :D *glomps back* How are you, please, I haven't heard, and I've been wondering.

Re: Appreciating Charles Dickens

It really is, and there's something about all of them that feel...I don't know, but it's the first book I can remember actually being able to navigate through all the houses and everything in them in my head without getting hopelessly lost. ....Oh my. I'm fairly certain you're right. I think I love ...

Re: -insert research squee here-

That's really interesting, and it makes sense for certain. Georges probably didn't have anyone else (which makes it worse, of course). I can only imagine what the transfer would have been like, though, trying to think about it all working legally, now. The Napoleonic Code provides guardianship to th...

Re: Appreciating Charles Dickens

I'd just like to say that I just finished reading David Copperfield for the first time, and really loved it, and am starting Bleak House and a biography on Dickens, so if anyone's read either of those, and is interested in discussing, or anything...well, maybe this thread needs a revival.

Re: Le Cafe Mu(in)sain

*glomps back!* Oh, it was wonderful, thank you. Well, Christmas. I've been terribly sick over New Year, which was not fun. But Christmas was beautiful, and oh, oh, I got a pocket watch! :mrgreen: An actual, working, wonderful pocket watch! And then I learned how to sew pockets and attach clasps onto...

Re: The Rant thread

HEY, PHAN! I've missed you. Well, not to shove things in if you want them to stay separate, but those sound perfectly promising to me! Bad puns, pssh, what can be more Hugolian? You could (and you do) play wonderful music on your violin, including Mis songs, and the violin itself is a really interes...

Re: -insert research squee here-

Tumblr recently brought up the fact that Blondeau is mentioned twice in Les Mis; once as the asshole who struck Bossuet from the ledger and then of course, once before when Tholomyes' friends Listolier and Fameuil explain him to Fantine as one of their professors. But that's not cool, so forget tha...

Heh, sorry Gervais. :wink: Oops, spammed a legitimate thread to greet your triumphant return because it was the first place I saw your name. Not too concerned with spamming here, though, so MARIUS!!! Let me shower you with all the love and smishes and wonder that you've been avoiding for the past fo...

Re: The Rant thread

Oh, Phan! :( That's terrible. I'm with Havvy, on both counts. And as to the last one, sometimes maybe you feel that way because you develop new interests, which is a natural thing, but who knows, maybe you can find some way to relate them, and they may actually relate more than you would have guesse...

Re: Enjolras as a Christ Figure

Huh, that's really interesting; I like this idea, especially because Hugo does mention Enjolras' speech as having "the thrill of a hymn," and being "an officiating priest and a man of war" holds perfectly true, and is often a defining characteristic of, Christ or a Christ-figure....

Re: Le Cafe Mu(in)sain

(Man, I hate to jump into the middle of a conversation like this). Hi, everyone. I'm not dead, I promise. I know it's been a while. Things happened, and...life is much better now. I missed you all, and I really hope you're well, and that you had wonderful Christmases, hopefully? I'm not overly famil...

Re: Le Cafe Mu(in)sain

I'd like to add my favorite Star Wars prequel bad dialogue line: "Only a Sith deals in absolutes, Anakin." Guess what, smart one, that was an absolute. :mrgreen: But yeah, I'm with you. The dialogue, well, a good portion of things about the prequels were excruciating. I mean, I enjoyed the...

Re: Le Cafe Mu(in)sain

That is true. I guess it wasn't the shape of the dress itself I was thinking of as much as the weight of everything together, the fabric for one, and specifically the headdress, which looks like it probably would get really heavy after a while. And I admit that the really thick makeup/facepaint/what...

Re: Le Cafe Mu(in)sain

Ah, I wish I did! I don't think we have any of those specifically, though. :( Which is a shame, because it happened a lot. Very true. Very, very true. :lol: Ah, yes; I remember curiously looking at the Throne Room robe, and quickly ruling it out, because eleven-year-old me understood that there was ...
