meow could you do somethig with "Jean Valjean entered the galleys sobbing and trembling; he left hardened. He entered in despair; he left sullen. What had happened within the soul?" this quote? meow meow no hurry, though
if you can’t donate for whatever reason but would like to, message me and i’ll make a donation around the end of december plus one dollar for every person who messaged me saying they wanted to donate but couldn’t (within reason - if this gets out of control and i get more messages than i have dollars to spare then i will let you know)
it’s okay if we don’t mutually follow or i don’t even know you, you can still message me and i will add a dollar to the donation for you! so feel free to reblog this out to the wider tumblrverse. also, please make sure that i reply to your message acknowledging that i got it and will be adding a dollar for you, because tumblr has been eating some of my messages lately.
32. If you could read in a foreign language, which language would you chose?
No, no, I’m serious. I studied Latin for GCSE and AS level and I LOVED IT. I am not a linguist, however, so I was good but not exceptional. Some things I could translate easily, some things not so much. But /wow/ the wealth of literature and history that was written in Latin! And yes I know, I know, it’s all been translated. But the thing is, translations aren’t the same thing as reading it and translating it yourself. I could have two different translations of The Aeneid side by side in front of me and they would read differently.
I mean, except for something like ‘the wine-dark sea’, that’s universal.
But yes. Latin. Or, as a second choice, Greek - ancient Greek, specifically. All those plays!
Not so much, no :( chest infection since at least March this year, they’ve got no real idea why she’s no longer responding to any medication, and she’s going to be admitted tomorrow for 7-10 days because they’ve reached the limit of what they can do at home.
The Les Mis 25th takes a lot of ignoring Nick Jonas. It's lovely when you do, though! Poor kid. Wasn't that he was bad, facial expression and box-hands aside, but he was just NOWHERE NEAR as good as everyone else on stage.
Yeah, expression aside, there were times when he wasn’t…horrendous. His Empty Chairs was decent enough (except for his face), but when he was onstage with the others - Alfie Boe, Katie Hall, Samantha Barks, etc, etc - he just…didn’t measure up.
Which is unfortunate. I don’t even find him physically attractive, so he’s in hardly any of my favourite caps…lol!
