On the subject of fanon and Amis, it's strange and vaguely amusing to me, that so much fanart takes its inspiration from the movie, but never with Bossuet. You'll get Killian!Ferre and Fra!Feyrac and Skinner!Joly, and even Brammer!Jehan, but I don't think I've ever seen Stuart Neal inspired fanart once!

So powerful republicans sitting it out when they did a cold calculation of their chances and deemed it not worth the risk might actually have been what doomed the 1832 revolt. (In general, it seems that the failure of 1832 stemmed from the republicans being not bold enough rather than too bold; I've also heard it said that if they'd stormed the Hôtel de Ville right away and declared a republic, they would probably have won.)
Is this the "A cinq heures..." book?! You must post your thoughts on it for us! (this isn't helping with my resolve not to buy it either!)
The potential for AUs about the rebellion there...awesome!
