I'm not sure "everyone you care about dies by the end" even counts as a spoiler where Victor Hugo novels are concerned. :lol:

Re: The Rant thread

Mm. The issue with the episode is that, in the original brief, all the historicals were given to John Lucarotti (who wrote "The Aztecs", "Marco Polo", "The Massacre", etc.) while all the space stories would go to Terry Nation. Unfortunately they quickly realized this w...

Re: Meta: First Names

TBH I've mostly given up on having first names for Amis. There's not much point--they all regularly address each other by their last names, and I don't see any real reason to change that, which means first names are irrelevant unless they come up incidentally in the plot. (Being addressed by family ...

Re: Popular Fanon

"Student" means law student unless stated otherwise--law and medicine were the only major degree-granting programs in Paris at the time, and medical students tend to be noted as such.

Re: The June Uprising 1832

Charles Jeanne: http://i931.photobucket.com/albums/ad154/sophiedegrouchy/Paris%20au%20temps%20des%20Miserables/Jeanne32.jpg Flailing madly right now. I was trying to find out more about him just the other day after re-reading the 1832 section of "Barricades" and lamenting the lack of info...

Re: Post a Picture of Yourself!

No idea--my friend and I ran into him at the movie theater and we all bonded over being in costume. DC metro area?

Re: Le Cafe Mu(in)sain

Though 35 euro does seem rather steep. Would you be able to get it cheaper somewhere else? (Is that a terribly unhelpful and thoroughly enabling suggestion?) Is that an entirely rhetorical question? :wink: But no, Amazon doesn't want to sell it to me for under €33. Woe. Mmmmm, notebooks. I am forbi...

Re: Le Cafe Mu(in)sain

*weeping* Why did I go look . What on earth could have possessed me to see if the Carnavalet bookshop had a website. Looks like what's listed online only scratches the surface of their inventory, but gah, what a surface . I am not allowed to buy this. I am not allowed to buy this. It's out of my pri...

Re: Le Cafe Mu(in)sain

Not gonna lie--Arts et Métiers may be my #1 overall Paris museum rec, but for Revolution- and Les Mis-related geeking, nothing beats Carnavalet. Not even the Victor Hugo museum. The VH museum sometimes has special exhibits focused on Les Mis or heavily Les-Mis-related topics like Hugo's political li...

Re: Le Cafe Mu(in)sain

Carnavalet might as well be a French Revolution museum--their collection is fabulous. And as a bonus, the fabulousness extends into the Restoration and July Monarchy period and has stuff like a scale model of the Palais-Royal c. 1820s, a lot of the big semi-famous paintings of 1830s street revolts, ...

Re: Le Cafe Mu(in)sain

Protip: if you're under 26 or a student anywhere in the EU, you can get into most museums in Paris for free or dirt cheap. Just ask for the tarif jeunes or the tarif étudiant; most museums will have one or the other. The big attractions--the Louvre, the Musée d'Orsay, the towers of Notre-Dame--are m...

Re: Le Cafe Mu(in)sain

Heh, well, I should preserve some scrap of anonymity until I've actually written something, but anyone looking at the meme on flat view will be able to see what threads from the past few hours have somebody offering to start a fill. And muttering about historical research. Gosh, I'm so good at prese...

Well, mostly because the sooner I get this stuff done the sooner I can quit my awful soul-sucking job without leaving a bunch of incompletions behind me. But oh, how the fic is calling to me.

Re: The Corinth - *Adult Content*

I haven't! I don't follow video stuff as much--stalwart of text-based fandom, I guess. I don't even remember when I first acquired VLR, but it must have been while Bush was president because most of those jokes were still relevant. :lol: I do remember that in my senior year of college I lent it to s...
