I know. :evil:

True, true. But I think that just means it's the perfect time to tell the story again, because it'll be an entirely new experience for so many of the people.

That is a wonderful way to look at it Marius! :D

I need to read A Tale of Two Cities. As soon as possible.

That's wonderful; I love that book, too, though not as much as Tale. :mrgreen: Which, speaking of, if you aren't averse to digital copies and online reading, you could always read here, one of many places. And if we scared your friend away, sorry. :oops: Very sorry. Tell her she's welcome and that we're not scary.

And Gervais, this thread is growing!


Nope, you didn't...she just doesn't "get" Abaissé...I think she's confused about how it works...hopefully the next time I go over to her house I can explain and get her as addicted as I am to this site...
Oliver was amazingness. Rose=Cosette. And Oliver=Toby from Sweeney. I shall now click on that link.

*finishes chapter 2*

Must read...but NEED SLEEP. But MUST READ...but NEED SLEEP. Mrargh. Decisions, decisions.
I choose sleep. Because I've gotten about six hours total the past two nights...*is sad*

Hey, that's okay! Tale is a large commitment. Not because it's long, but because it likes to weave itself subtly, and not so subtly into your life, changing it. Like a golden thread. :mrgreen: Cheap shots are so much easier with Tale than others.

And okay, well, if your friend wants to come, I promise we'd be nice! A bit insane, but nice.
And YES, YES, YES! Oliver Twist and Les Mis = far too similar. We had a conversation about this once, months and months ago, like, last October, I think, and decided something to the effect of Rose = Cosette, Dodger = Gavroche (of course), Nancy = Éponine, Bet = Azelma, Sikes = Thenardier, Brownlow = Valjean, and -- get this-- Oliver = Marius. Or Harry = Marius. And I think there was even a story about something there Gervais wanted to write...But either way, just more general insanity over on the chat thread. Two thousand pages ago. :wink: And whoops, sorry, now I've hijacked this thread with randomness. :oops: At least it's Dickens.
>Ahem< Rose = Lucie. There.

Yes, yes you do. :twisted: Glad you're liking it, Em and Mabz! :D

I don't remember what exactly told me the ending, but I knew before I read the book, for sure.

Proper burial would work, too. This would be horrible, but what if he was the one who accidentally killed Lucie Sr? The Cracken appreciates the cookie. :mrgreen:

That's probably too harsh. :shock: That's...that's...ach, Carton would never ever get over it. I would never get over it. :wink: Poor guy. But anyway you like, I mean, after all, it seems you've already made it an agenda to torture these poor people. :wink:
And tell the Cracken there's a whole lot more in the larder if he wants them.

Maybe the revelation of that could be the Big Thing in chapter 22? :mrgreen: That might be a bit too cruel, though, you're right.

It could, but it might. How's Darnay taking all of this, by the way? :wink:

Hmm...I think he was the one that wanted to ship the body to America, but not sure about anything other than that.

YAAAAAAY, you're back! :mrgreen: We were afraid we scared you off, and were feeling slightly ashamed. :oops: Even when Mabz (Mademoiselle Mabeuf) told us we didn't. And join us! It's great fun, and there's lots of Carton fangirling, especially with talk of symbolism and all that, and we're planning a movie, and writing numerous crack fics, and you know, whatever, so...hello! :D

And all right, that's a good start, at least, Gervais.
