I resent being used to divert boredom, but you're sick so I'll humor you.

If you can find mes amis, I'll forgive you. I would like to talk to them. I was rather hoping you'd forgotten me, but I know better.

I will not be a part of one of your games. I am not a pawn, nor am I interested in playing. I have bigger things to attend to. You admire me and I acknowledge that. But, that doesn't mean that I will allow this.

But, if you can find my friends I would thank you for that. We are scattered in these places.

Oui, I have finally been called back to London. You know what lies ahead as you have been there before I have, in several matters of speaking. But to my best knowledge, I am only going to visit Monsieur Sonnac for my next assignment.

I do have a...Feeling, though. Not quiet the same as the amusement park or the dream, but it is a big Feeling. Un peu peur. I think that I would like R to come with me, but I am operating under the impression that he would prefer to sleep in.

Which is no different from how it has ever been, big or small feelings. Direct your concerns to Herr Mozart, instead. He is ill and I am as well as I have ever been.

Bonne chance à tous. Let's see what tomorrow brings.

There are, I think, enough people in the world who have cause to think that I am someone who slept in on June 5th and almost missed what was happening. You may sleep all you like, but I will be where I belong.

Drowsiness is meaningless. Get up. Bake your galette , take your photographs. Do what you must, but do not let this day pass you by. Souvenez-vous de nous.

Complete and utter royalist propaganda. Terrible propaganda at that. [Take a seat, he's feeling impassioned by this-] I have three main complaints.

First, the overstated metaphor of the entire narrative: the land where a prince does not rule his people is cold and barren- winter in the middle of summer. The people without their 'rightful' ruler are little, small-minded, scared by the mere mention of magic and other superstitious nonsense. Yet once their lord returns the sun shines and the people are overjoyed.

Second, the lesson this arrogant prince is completely incidental to his true crime. His treatment of the servants cursed alongside him, and, we can safely assume, the people under his rule. His love for the young woman shows no sign of redeeming this fault as he returns to his opulent lifestyle once his humanity is restored to him.

Which brings me to my final, and greatest, complaint: they set the young woman up as a progressive and educated ideal for the masses, only to have her fall in love with the prince- the very symbol of their oppression! We, it must be inferred, are likewise to see the monarch as an at-times boorish but kind-at-heart and benevolent force in our lives.

Bah. How any reasonable, well-informed person can be entertained by such insipid pandering to the crown is beyond me. It is intolerable.
idealisme: (Les guerriers d'une armée qui s'avance)

The words 'liberty or death', shouted against the oppressor, Louis XVI, were meant as a motivation for revolutionaries to seek their ideals at all costs. Enough was, as they claimed, enough. These words should not be taken as indicators that a death itself, and a fixed afterlife should become barriers to these dreams.

This fight for freedom against the enslavers of humankind will not be stopped at the grave. It is impossible for it to end there.

I will not allow it to end there.

[Chill is not a word in his dictionary.]

You proved yourself unreliable. Very well. It isn't as though I was enjoying myself. However, you really should take your obligations to activity checks more seriously. You say that you want my voice. Well, if that's the case I wonder why you had the problem with keeping up to begin with.

I know, you don't want the structure. You want freedom. I can't fault you there, only, do try to keep on top of things.

And yes, if you could find my friends, I would be grateful. We both know that I was lonely there.

Since my earlier reservations were...ignored, by you, can I at least persuade you to find a place where one of my friends might be?

Their presence would make things a bit more tolerable. And...honestly, they likely need some sort of supervision, depending on who is where. I would prefer for us all to be together, but, I understand that is likely impossible given our circumstances.

I would also find it less of an inconvenience if there were medical lectures to attend. Or any sort of scientific lecture.

It has been a few years, has it not? Are you quite certain you want to pick me up once again?

Perhaps we could reach a compromise, where I am allowed to sketch my moth in peace.

You have a limited awareness of literature, politics, and philosophy, either historical or contemporary. This is not the impediment you think it. I do not see that you'll be called on to have me debate those things here; a cursory awareness of appropriate references will suffice. Your ignorance of both France and Paris are excusable, likewise your comically shallow understanding of the revolution. All of these things may be overcome.

Yet there is one thing, an impassable impediment to our present endeavour and continued mutual happiness: you do not drink. Not a mug, not a thimble, not a drop.

In the words of your modern philosophers: I cannot even.

Do you know, we did not only do it for the poor of Paris whose wishes we apparently discarded, in spite of the July Revolution. They were a catalyst, and perhaps one that we used as the main focal point, but all of us, our band of brothers, also did it for ourselves.

I cannot say I would conduct myself much differently, as that which drove my actions was the calling of necessity, but there we are, then, aren't we? Hypocrissy, perhaps, but living in a world against the constraints of our consciences was not quite living either, was it?

...I can only hope that they, and she would not have found me lacking. I know enough that my brothers, and you, do not, and there is comfort there, no matter if it's deserved or no.

I doubt that any others understand, but then, perhaps, they were not meant to. Those who need it know enough, and perhaps that is all that matters.

You know perfectly well what you've done, Madame Mundane (No Cher for you, not now) and perfectly well why I am furious right now. Not only do you let a newcomer come in and replace me in the affections of the one person who was willing to at least pretend at liking me, you've also given other headmates, most notably your precious favorite a chance at something that was, this time, supposed to be mine, that you had promised and plan to fail on delivering because something better has come along for Enjolras, yet again.

First, I lose someone I cared about to the man who destroyed what could have been my republic, and now I lose my chance at being alive, at being real to someone who I love, even though I was supposed to go next.

But then, I'm not as real to you as they are, am I? I am not allowed that chance again while they will have many.

It is good to discover where I lay in everyone's estimation, at least, I suppose, including yours. I did think you held me in some higher regard than that, but my mistake, I suppose, anyway.

It will not be the first time I've been shoved away for something else, now will it?

I hate this and you, and that all there is for me to do is once again accept it and perhaps get ready to move on from here. No point in staying, is there?

Apparently, no longer yours,

Pest? So that's what we're callin' it these days? Well, I never. Gent like me bein' called a pest, an' to think I was honourin' you with my good company. Not that there's much to be doin' round these parts. Ain't even sure what you got planned for me. I've got things to be doin', you know. Can't be hanging around here like I've got all the time in the world.

An' who's this bloke you keep going on about? Nothin' like him. Or Sikes. Me own man, that's me. The Artful Dodger. You, though, your call me Mister Dawkins, we ain't rightly knowin' each other yet. Anyway, why would I want to get involved in some ... bloomin' revolution. Every man for himself, an' Dodger first, that's how it goes.

Anyway, it's in France. Not going there, not on your life.

Mundane Woman,

I can appreciate that you have some sort of admiration for me. Do not think that I am ungrateful, but your recent shenanigans were not amusing. I do not appreciate my virtue being used as a source of sport or humor, are we clear on the matter?

I trust that we will not need to have this conversation again.

P.S. Not true, Madame, but if it were you would be responsible.

Madame Mundane,

I believe I have been forced to have this particular discussion with you several times over and I do grow tired of repeating myself, so perhaps, we might try this another way. You have it within your power to give me what I wish to have, and you will give it to me. You may choose whether you do so in the easy way, or in the difficult one, but rest assured, I shall win your petty and stupid battle of wills in one way or the other.

Rest assured I am prepared to make it difficult as I might for you, until you decide that you have had enough of the fight over all of this. You
will see me through and give me what I wish for in the end, but I pray that ending may be hurried all the same.

Consider my request above all else. The next time, I will not make it so nicely.

My dear Madame,

You know in your heart what is to be done, and what it is I need. Why do you hesitate so strongly, when some things are inevitable and cannot be repaired any longer?

I have seen, I have been through so much horror, it rests upon me like a weight. Would you not let me be free of that, to start again in a world that has not changed me, made me into this? The pair of us deserve a chance at happiness again, not cold and numb acceptance of the terror I've faced. Perhaps I am not strong enough to stay behind after such weight, perhaps my weakness shows at last, and I suppose I am ashamed of that.

But if one cannot move forward from their past, I think only one choice is clear.

Consider it from every angle, and not just your own.

Let me fully understand this. You intend to take me to a place where I shall turn into a monster? ....It does sound rather fascinating; but I must admit I am primarily drawn because you say Enjolras, Grantaire, and Joly will be present. Pontmercy, as well? Then I must go, otherwise the poor pup may get eaten alive by our fierce lion.

...Well! Perhaps I will turn into something exciting. A vampire would be wonderful, very Byronic. Do keep it in mind.

I know who'll be taking full advantage of it. And who won't be.
