emotional deluge under the cut )
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*


Wow, it's taken me too long to do this

Also, I have this urge to turn our bio lessons into sci fi snippets. C'mon, the nervous system? Homeostasis?

"Move quickly!" she said. "We must travel through the Forest of Dendrites to reach the Sacred Synapse! We've got to hurry, or else we'll be swept up the wave of depolarization as it strikes terror into the Axon with its evil minions, the S'Odiums!"
"You're right!" exclaimed
Potas Sium beside her, "if we don't get the Pulsimay to the Synapse in time, the whole world of Neu'ron will be reset and we will become lifeless beings, unable to feel a thing! We must transmit this message!"
"Here," interrupted the strong and energetic NaK, "I'll hold the Depolarizer off as long as possible. You two just get to the Nodes of Ranvier as fast as possible! Tell Lord Ranvier--"
"Wait," she said, "Ranvier is real? I thought the Nodes were just a children's tale."
"No, they are certainly real," said NaK. "And very powerful. Through them, Lord Ranvier will use the magic of the Saltatrix Conductiva to speed your journey immensely.
Tell him that you need Myelin's Sheath - he'll understand! Now go!"
"Goodbye NaK!" they cried as they turned and set out on their fantastic journey - to save the world of Neu'ron.


...Look, I never said the snippets would make sense.
