|02:13 pm - Les Mis / A Tale of Two Cities meta|
[crossposted to Tumblr]
So, almost a full year after meeting Grantaire from Les Miserables, I met Sydney Carton from A Tale Of Two Cities, and oh god they would have gotten along so well.
Grantaire: “I want a drink. I desire to forget life. Life is a hideous invention of I know not whom. It lasts no time at all, and is worth nothing.”
Carton: “As to me, the greatest desire I have, is to forget that I belong to it. It has no good in it for me—except wine like this—nor I for it.”
Grantaire: "I am tired to death, and I am stupid!"
Carton: “There is nothing in [me] to like; you know that.”
Hugo on Grantaire: "…humanity, civilization, religion, progress, came very near to signifying nothing whatever to Grantaire…He was, himself, moreover, composed of two elements, which were, to all appearance, incompatible. He was ironical and cordial. His indifference loved."
Dickens on Carton: “…the cloud of caring for nothing, which overshadowed him with such a fatal darkness, was very rarely pierced by the light within him.”
Hugo on Grantaire: “He had need of Enjolras. That chaste, healthy, firm, upright, hard, candid nature charmed him, without his being clearly aware of it, and without the idea of explaining it to himself having occurred to him…Grantaire in the presence of Enjolras became some one once more.”
Carton to Lucie: "I have had unformed ideas of striving afresh, beginning anew, shaking off sloth and sensuality, and fighting out the abandoned fight. A dream, all a dream, that ends in nothing, and leaves the sleeper where he lay down, but I wish you to know that you inspired it."
There’s more, loads more-( Read more...Collapse )

...and then go to the cinema to see The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Yay!

|09:47 pm - Les Mis character poll|
(Hello, folks here from tumblr!) Okay let's try this! I *love* fandom surveys, but I don't do them very often.
Results will be collected in a week and put in a snazzy graphic. If your favourite character didn't make it to the poll (I don't think I missed anyone, but I'm probably wrong) comment with their name, mmmkay?

The IT Crowd FINAL EVER EPISODE happened yesterday! It was good. A bit overstretched, but good. (The IT Crowd is one of those shows that really doesn't work as a feature-length, but what the heck, they tried.) And they got back a lot of old characters! Apart from Denholm, which is a shame because he was always one of the funniest. Oh well.
Basically it was good but not as good as 'The Final Countdown', which is one of the most hilarious episodes of anything I've ever seen ever. Also I like to think this isn't really goodbye, there might be a reunion special twenty years or so down the line...
