LOOKING FINE FOR 267 YEARS OLD, LOOK AT THIS FUCKING FREE BITCH.
AND NOW. IT. IS. TIME.
( Those thoughtless men who criticize me for being so stubborn, will see from this that I have been this way from an early age-- GET THE FUCK OUT, DAVID. )
POST ALL OF YOUR MARAT PICS. THIS IS A PARTY POST.
MOAR MARAT IN DAVID IN COMICS (and once again, inspired by kurotoshi's comic). Oh and my humor is very weird. Just sayin'....
( STOP CALLING STOP CALLING-- )
/crawls back under rock until next time
The heritage is still alive. Articles on revolutionaries and other people somehow related to the French revolution, including Marat, Brissot, Hérault de Séchelles, Roux, Couthon, Saint-Just, Hébert, Prieur, Choderlos de Laclos, Sade, Toussaint Louverture (the leader of Haitian revolution and anti-slavery movement, the so-called black jacobin), David, Olympe de Gouges and many others.
Our fellow-revolutionary Estellacat has kindly volunteered to translate any of these articles to English for those who can't read French. Just express your wish in a comment and she will do it for us.
and i wanted to share it with you all because i have a sick sense of humor or whatever. and enjoy xD hahahahha
( You are warned! )
Marat birthday was in May 24, but this day all what I was able to see at Livejournal was a white screen.
However, I don't want to forget Marat, who was one of Hanriot's better friends (yeah...and he also was "L'Ami du Peuple"!). It was Marat who helped him to be freed from Bicêtre prison; it was surely him who peomoted him to Commandat of National Guard. And it was Hanriot who cared for Marat's gravesite when he was buried, planting roses and a tree close to it (It wasn't romantic?? :D ).
So, I think it's better to post this in May 31, when movement to get Girondins out of the Convention began...And would you believe me? Because it IS my own birthday too!

I'm transcribing the chapter on Robespierre next. Who do you want to read about after? Danton? Fabre? Lafayette? Louvet?
( Read more... )
EDIT. And this is why you should not do these things in a hurry. Have tried to fix the several typos and added the footnote which I forgot to type up in the first place. Apologies.
Somebody's apparently twittering as Marat. It's actually pretty funny and seems to be done in good humor.
Some examples include:
"@gironde - if you want, YES, I WILL send you the math regarding the heads necessary."
"An insurrection is like a suprise practical exam for revolutionaries. One that's graded pass/fail. Just a thought..."
"Down with tyranny! Republic FTW!"
"The Mountain is full of drama llamas. This is why nothing gets done here!"
and my personal favorite:
"Paper got banned again. Going into hiding. Have no fear, my loyal readers - I WILL continue to tweet. Down with the Girondins!"
Just thought everyone might find it interesting. I recommend starting at the beginning, as the person doing it sometimes goes on multi-post story arcs, one including a laser-guillotine.
Funnily enough, when they report his death a few weeks later, The Times' attitude is "oh shit, he was holding it together...now there'll be chaos and war" (and there was!)
Safin himself says he thinks the name's Muslim, but it isn't, is it (?). In the interview about it, he sounds clueless, so I'm hoping it was a Russian communist grandmother keeping the revolutionary flame alive (unfortunately, on someone too stupid to appreciate it).
