Omg the last one. Did ed watts really fist bump and stuff in an effort to belong?
AHAHAHAH NO BUT IT WOULD HAVE BEEN AWESOME, it was just Ireny joking on that Tumblr post going around.
Dallas Adventures last week (agh how was it already LAST WEEK) were not just about the theater! There was also hangout time with superstar fandom artist irenydrawsdeadpeople, who in addition to her obvious artistic skills is patient and generous and TOTALLY GAVE ME SKETCHES I AM SO DELIGHTED. Captions on the click-through view, but the main point is LOOK I MET WITH IRENY I HAVE PROOF.
Responses! Under cut, because still sort-of-spoilers for staging details, and because this is really just me unpacking emotions:
DALLAS *flails and shouts forever*
This is just wonderful— I especially like how he gets more solid AND less detailed as his outfit reflects less light!
Enjolras, Courfeyrac and Combeferre planning the Revolution
expressions practices ~~
this is so so so cool! I love it with all my heart and it’s definitly going to be my future icon don’t worry about it ;v; thank u so much, it’s an amazing surprise and it really did my day!! You’re the best çvç
I love the style here— I think my favorite is Combeferre’s Dazed By Possible Science!! expression, it’s so cute!
I’m not to blame for this picture; this post is.
Alas, poor Joly, bearing the brunt of yet another bad joke. I’d have used Combeferre, only he wouldn’t have as hard a time. Maybe.
OH DEAR XD
Joly hon I don’t think you were both supposed to be fully dressed to the coats at this point
though suddenly I’m understanding how Bossuet got mixed up in the whole affair (and struggling not to make all SORTS of awful jokes) if these two are both THAT confused XD
I suppose Joly might take some comfort from watching Bahorel crack a rib laughing when he learns that THIS is how it went?
Here is a fabulous map of mid-nineteenth century Parisian omnibuses.
This article answers just about every question you will ever have about medicine or medial students in mid-nineteenth century Paris.
Here is a free e-book version of The Mysteries of Paris by Eugene Sue. It is a super long novel made up of stories from Gothic-y, adventuresome feuillitons and often reads a bit like the plot for a soap opera, but this section, as translated by tenlittlebullets, where a grisette accounts for her budget, is also really useful for day-to-day details.
Please feel free to reblog with your favorite sources!
tenlittlebullet’s site, chanvrerie.net, also has a bunch of great stuff about Hugo and history, in case anyone out there hasn’t already stumbled across it.
Here are a couple words about the 1832 cholera.
And this site has a decent little article on that Jeunes-France/Bouzingo group that I was writing about the other day.
I’m sure there’s waaaay more to be had, but this is the useful stuff off the top of my head.
