This is the ideal XVIII century cute male body. You may not like it, but this is what peak revolutionary performance looks like.Fuck the haters with a guillotine andHappy Bastille Day, /cm/!
And now some more to start this up. Everyone else is welcome to post their own French Revolutionary husbando, or anything cute, male and on-topic
this is so weird but also cute, I like it
>>3730905How wrong is it if I think Oscar is peak femboy aesthetics? Kentaro said he literally based Griffith’s looks and his court dress on Oscar
>>3731148Not very wrong. Btw I also headcannon that Oscar and a more historically correct version of Saint-Just (not a cringe Assassin's-Creed-villain-tier edgemaster Ikeda made him for some reason) could have become friends. But this is just my off-topic autism, let's keep it on-topic and not anger the purists anymore by posting women.
My brain processes Oscar as P2 Griffith Which makes the lack of ruthless acts disturbing
>>3731686Oops forgot pic
>>3731686Well, Oscar is too pure for that sort of thing, deal with it. Perhaps just imagine that picrel was Griffith and his Eclipse would involve sacrificing the whole National Convention... Or at least the Jacobin Club with... Well, I'll leave it to your own sick crossover imagination, who could be Casca and Guts, mine already has several good candidates.
Bumping with some nice Ninety-Three art I've found. Honestly, I don't get why Ninety-Three is so obscure and has no actual fandom, when it's arguably even more... subtext'y than Les Mis. Though it is also fucking depressing. And yes, it's not perfect by any means, it could use more plot and less meandering and philosophy, more developed characters and perhaps Sain-Just actually showing up. No, this is not merely an autistic request to see my husbando everywhere. Judging by the way Hugo put basically a bootleg copy of him in Les Mis, he was clearly interested in him, but alas, maybe he wasn't confident he could pull off writing about the real thing. That's a shame, it seems like there are no actually good depictions of my husbando in literature and that's a bad feel.
Omsb, this is quite probably the best shit ever
>>3733993He is Antoine de Saint-Just, a French Revolutionary and mai husbando
Why is he so cute, citizens?
Genuine question, does this art have any specific source material or are we just oggling cuties from the Reign of Terror? Based either way, but I am keen on seeing some Desmoulins art if I can.
Genuine question, is this based on some sort of source material or are we all just oggling cuties from the Reign of Terror? Based either way, but I'd like to get my grubby little hands on some Desmoulins art if I can.
>>3734296The latter. Anyone cute, male and at least somewhat Revolution-related is fine. I mostly post Antoine, because I mostly collect art with him.Sharing our weird headcanons might also be an option, as you can see above.The source material seems nonexistent. I've yet to encounter a novel/manga/film/whatever where the portrayal of my favorite revolutionaries is not extremely biased, sensationalist, historically incorrect or just... I have no other word but 'cringe'. Antoine has it especially bad. He's usually an AssCreed villain or some sort of Parisian Psycho. Perhaps something good has been written in French but I've failed to learn this language so far. Though when I look at BDs I understand at least a third of the dialogue. Perhaps if there was a nice BD I could read it. But I confess I've become really disillusioned and stopped trying new things.
>>3734538As a French person, portraying the revolutionaries as anything positive is like portraying the Confederates as heroes for Americans. And plus Napoleon usurped all the patriotism for that era anyways.t. La Garde meurt mais ne se rend pas
>>3734568Well, pretty sad if true. Good thing I don't live in France then.
>>3734568By the way, if you want to post more Napoleonic era stuff, do. Not a big fan of Napoleon myself, but Regency/Napoleonic male fashion is best historical fashion in my book.
Well, it was a really sad day today. Goodnight, sweet not-prince.F
>>3734997a few from a manga series called glory of napoléon (probably I don't actually remember cause it's like 1am and I'm half drunk)
Well, I've decided to keep this thread alive at least until my husbando's birthday.
>>3736343At least because now I've seen schoolgirl Robespierre, I just can't... not share it with you.But I don't want to break the rules so here: https://files.catbox.moe/zd5c4l.png
Also here's some cute Napoleon
>>3736347>>3736349>>3736351>>3736354Based and Empereur-pilled
Dropping some Marshals
I've found some fun stuff on pixiv. Now I'm glad that, after all, I'm not the only sick fuck on this planet who has sexual thoughts about dead people from 200+ years ago (though perhaps I shouldn't be...).
Can't guess who the second guy is but I'm going to self-insert as him.
>>3737285Could be Napoleon III? I think he looks similar.
>>3736976Stupid sexy Murat
There is this Tumblr artist that posts a lot of Robespierre art she draws.
Do other anons do the same and go out of their way to take note of and pay attention to cute bois when researching history? My bf gets really exasperated whenever we talk about history and I bring up obscure historical bois. He says I only know twink history. he also called my a "mini Milosevic" and "genocidal bottom" when playing stellaris which has kind of become my mental shorthand for cute but murderous figures like Saint Just.
Does anyone know if the revolutionary men spoke English?
>tfw no jawless Robespierre bf
>>3744446Unlikely. French was the lingua franca (yeah, what a pun) back then. France might have been not in a good place politically, but it still considered itself culturally dominant. So they would have as little incentive to learn one of the modern languages (as opposed to Latin or Greek, which men of culture were still expected to know), as, say, current Americans and British have. I don't mean it as a joke or a dig. Just a fact. You know how 'much' Americans enjoy watching movies with subtitles. So much that whenever a movie from a non-English speaking country is internationally successful, they remake it. They even remake British movies and shows, so much they resent consuming a product from an 'inferior' and 'alien' culture. If that kind of nationalistic cultural snobism still exists today, just imagine how bad it was in the XVIII century, when people basically invented nationalism and it was all the rage. No, they would most likely tell you that real patriots of France have no time for cringe English books and learning the filthy enemy language.At least Robespierre didn't know English. I don't remember where I read it. Perhaps in Mantel's novel, which people claim was well researched. Personally, I don't believe in certainty about such small details. Sadly, there was way too much butthurt and propaganda after Termidor, too much info destroyed or obfuscated, etc. And 200+ years later, it's still too charged a topic to expect objectivity even from academics.>>3744702You sick fuck...
>>3744767Most modern French people don't speak English either. There is a certain French pride going on over there.
Are Robespierre and his men really in hell? I cannot even imagine the horror and torment that is there. No one deserves to suffer so much. Couldn't there be a lighter punishment?
>>3745044Hell is a spook, Citizen. Just stop believing in it. Read some Dawkins. If athteism or agnosticism aren't your cup of tea, look into some other, less BDSM-y religion than Christi*n*ty.
>>3744767>At least Robespierre didn't know English. I don't remember where I read it.But how did he communicate with Thomas Jefferson when signing a declaration I don't remember the name of? I assume Jefferson spoke French?
>>3748287>I assume Jefferson spoke French?Yes, apparently Jefferson learned French while still a child
Is this artist French? I used to think so too because once in a while, she would write comics that are in French. Turns out she's a Canadian. But is she a Quebecois? Why else would she write these in French? In the video she appeared where she talked about Robespierre, she definitely didn't have a French accent.
I'm a French boy that loves 18th century clothing and makeup, particularly dandy fashion. I also love singing, mostly opera but not always. I've taken pics where I'm in full makeup and outfit and posted them online. A lot of people compared to the America's Got Talent 2010 contestant, Prince Poppycock. But I honestly think I'm way prettier and more talented than him. His costumes are clowney and his singing is mediocre at best. I don't know how he made it to the last five. This just proves to me how low are American standards. His Italian pronunciation is off too. I filmed myself singing Largo Al Factotum, Vesti La Giubba and La Donna E Mobile. It sounds and looks way better than his performances. The "love letter to America" performance is so cringy. It shocks me that he is so proud of being American. If I were American, I would be beyond embarrassed. On the other hand, I'm kinda jealous that he was born in such a free and Liberal country. If I were on a French talent show dressed like that, I would get shunned right away.https://youtu.be/kFlZC1G7urs
>>3745044They killed two shota, there's no punishment harsh enough for that
>>3748535He needs to wear ouji and do a Malice Mizer song NOW
>>3748650>two shotaTwo? I only remember them killing one, what are you on about? Also if the shota is retarded and ugly it's for the best. He would have grown up autistic just like his father, better to spare him a life full of suffering. If even now life with autism is very hard, just imagine how it was two hundred years ago!Anyway, they didn't actually kill him, fuck off, you ignorant pedo.
