    Default {The Novel of Bad Manners} |Interest Cheque|

    Cash those cheques below~ Mummy needs a new pair of ribbons.

    Welcome to the Georgian Era. Novels of manners written by socialites like the Austen sisters serve as a commentary on the wonders and woes of society and keep the presses hot. With Europe coming to a boil (Don't worry, it's more murder and less plague this time!), the tea & scandals could not be hotter. Not nearly so hot, however, as life in France is about to become. Literary figures, politicians, industrialists, academics, and revolutionaries all caricature the best and worst of the period in a roleplay that will have you - and possibly your head - rolling.



    Did Mary Shelley drop laudanum like Gauss dropped knowledge? Was the pre-Regency world beset by a higher volume of hair than Common Sense? If you have the wit and the will to paint the town like Delacroix and make even Diderot's Jaques do a doubletake, then pull on your blue stockings and come along on a parodic journey through the turn of 18th Century Europe and the world beyond. We have cake.

    Ah, thank you for your interest! I can see you hold the revolutionary's disdain of cake, so please have a fork instead in exchange.

    The french phrase is Qu'ils mangent de la brioche which directly translates to Let them eat brioche, a sweet bread so, pass the butter.


    Another round of bullets hits my skin. Well, fire away
    Cause today, I won't let the shame sink in. We are bursting through
    the barricades and reaching for the sun.

    Thank you for your interest! Si la dame veut du pain brioche, elle aura du pain. If it's bread the lady wants, then bread she shall have in exchange.



    With that being the charming third, I shall work on posting up a proper Out of Character thread!
