elsane: Yeo Kyeung and Wan from Capital Scandal in full revolutionary garb (revolution!!)
I need a Les Miserables icon. Sadly none of the famous 1860s art features Combeferre.

(I have, however, found this screamer, courtesy Pont Au Change, which is apparently supposed to be Enjolras:
it must be seen to be believed. ))

You guys, I have just spent 113 pages hanging out with an elderly bishop and his household, an ex-convict, and a very opinionated author, and I am having the time of my life. I love this book.

The Bishop of Digne, it turns out, is based on a real person )

The moment when I knew I would love this book, as opposed to simply finding it highly entertaining, came when our friend the Bishop goes to visit the dying conventionary, and his priestly hackles rise like those of a much pettier man, and the tension comes to a head when the Bishop drops to a seat and demands an accounting.

there's a bit of stuff about atheism here, but not very much, because I need to go to bed )
