Things My French Prof Talks About: a) the multiple stories within Jacques le fataliste, b) the quarrels, setbacks and conflicts that surrounded Diderot's work on L'Encyclopédie of 1751-72.

What I Choose To Do With That Knowledge: This. Posted a while ago on tumblr, but on here for posterity, because if you're looking for my stupid, you should be able to find it all in one place.

Not to mention, the following, being a ridiculous, completely historically inaccurate thing I wrote down while I should have been paying attention to a discussion about theater or something.

(Just going to preface the cut with the disclaimer that a) I know nothing about screenwriting; b)SO MUCH HISTORICAL INACCURACY because I can't be bothered to look up dates for these events; c) this is, actually, the most random thing EVER, sorry.)
d) franglais is totally an official language, wtf are you talking about? )

...I also wrote something down about a prompt for a prison!au-thing, based on Rousseau visiting Diderot while he was in prison* (and Diderot possibly subsequently influencing EVERYTHING ROUSSEAU DID, EVER (if you ask my prof)), but I think that will have to wait until I find the magical place where a kink meme for 18th century French writers/philosophes actually, y'know, exists.

*I live in fear of the day anyone asks to borrow my french notes. "What's this?" "Oh, that's, um. Just a bit of porn I wrote about Diderot getting it on with Voltaire. NBD."

ETA: Oh my GOD, dear flist D,,,,:  *HUGS*
This is a post all about eighteenth century French literature! Because reading Diderot is just... LOLWUT. But it is not a srs!bznz post because a) LOL THE BOOK IS WRITTEN IN FRENCH, WHAT IS THIS READING COMPREHENSION YOU SPEAK OF? and (consequently), b) my summary of the book is basically as follows: two guys ride around and talk about their sexcapades.

I REALLY ENJOYED THIS BOOK. :DDDDDD

Let the record show that: 1) If I am looking up fanfiction for Jacques le fataliste, it is only because DIDEROT TOLD ME TO. Or, rather, he was all "I DARE YOU TO DO BETTER Si vous n'êtes pas satisfait de ce que je vous révèle des amours de Jacques, lecteur, faites mieux, j'y consens." WHICH IS BASICALLY THE SAME THING.

2) "Tu es mon serviteur, quand je suis malade ou bien portant, et je suis le tien quand tu te portes mal." (p.118) ;LASKDJF;LASKDJFAS YOU GUYS WHY IS IT SO ~BROMANTIC ;ASLDKJFA;LSDF (There are other examples, but I am too lazy to type up a whole paragraph of French js.)

3)... THAT IS SOME NICE BROMANCE YOU'VE GOT GOIN' ON THERE, DIDEROT.

Jacques: Bonjour, ladies.
Look at your Maître. Now back to me. Now back à votre Maître. Et encore à moi. Malheureusement, il n'est pas moi. Mais s'il ne prendrait pas une prise de tabac en regardant l'heure qu'il est, he could act like he's me. Look down, back up. Where are you? You're camping in the French countryside with your Maître. What's on your mind? I have it! It's a history of the time I learned sex didn't have to be in the missionary position. Look again. The woman is now on top! Anything is possible si c'est écrit là-haut.
Son Maître: I'm on a horse.

SOMEDAY, I WILL ACCEPT THAT NO ONE APPRECIATES BUTCHERED FRANGLAIS OLD SPICE MEMES*. UNTIL THEN, YOU'LL JUST HAVE TO PUT UP WITH ME.

*Also, why have I not been able to find one for The Eagle? STEP IT UP, FANDOM. :D

LOOOOOOOOOOOL FOREVER I LOVE THIS THREAD. AHAHAHAA, I WAS SO CONFUSED WHEN I READ "CBT" IN MY INBOX. I WAS LIKE, WOW, I NEVER REALLY THOUGHT OF COGNITIVE-BEHAVIOURAL THERAPY AS A KINK, BUT W/E W/E.

OHKAY, YOU'RE RIGHT, "COCK AND BALL TORTURE" DOES INDEED MAKE FOR THE SAME ACRONYM.
OH HOLY FUCKING SHITBALLS.

YOU. GUYS. JUST.

I.

Well, I finished Kings of Clonmel last night, and HOLY ;ALSKDJF;ALSDHK;ASKLT;ASDJ;ALTJ;ASLDINA; I DON'T EVEN!!!!!

BEWARE: THE IMAGES ARE FUCKING HUGE BECAUSE I AM A N0OB AND HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO MAKE THEM SMALLER. JSYK.

SPOILERS (WITH VISUALS) FOR KINGS OF CLONMEL (RA SERIES) )

completely unrelated: I want the "France" part of this as my ringtone. HOW AWESOME WOULD THAT BE? Every time a call would come in: "SIDNEY CROSBY!! YYYYYEAAAAAUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAUUUUUUUUUUUUHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LES CANADIENS!!!!!! QUEL FILS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" (LOL if it went off in the middle of lecture. Oh, man. ;p)

EDIT: OK, I am the luckiest idiot EVER. Wikipedia tells me there are TWO MORE BOOKS scheduled for Flanagan's RA series. TEARS OF HAPPINESS RN.
