    Summary

    We can be divided in our opinions, as were Cicero and Brutus, on the best methods of revolution, and on the most effective way of saving the Republic, without Cicero concluding from this one disagreement that Brutus was receiving guineas from Photine, the prime minister of Ptolemy.

    Summary

    So: the monarchy does not gut itself on their shrine, haruspex or offrande, but sputters out instead, gives like a tired lung. The republic is never born, never shaped by their hands; it derives, la grande suivante, a mere tally at the end of the day.

    In this world, it's 2019, France is a presidential republic, and the separation of powers is nothing more than a dinner anecdote.

    (In which the French Revolution did not exactly happen, not quite the right way.)

    Summary

    Camille and Max share a quiet moment in the summer of their school years when the Revolution is just an idea and their youth is in full blaze. In which they share hopes and Camille places his trust in what Max promises he can provide. Warnings for oral sex and tragic hindsight and mature content in which I may or may not compare the french revolution to a blow job.

    Summary

    "I suppose you might stay the night," Robespierre said, thinking out loud. Once voiced though, the idea held a certain appeal, even logic.

    Summary

    Camille is full of outlandishly foolish ideas, but maybe he's just trying to catch Maximilien's attention. Set at Louis le Grand in approximately 1776. The warning is because Camille is only 16.
