montagnarde1793: (I did it for the lulz)

To anyone who has ever considered writing about the French Revolution, can we please not see any more scenarios involving a tug-of-war over Robespierre's soul, with Saint-Just in the role of the little-devil-on-the-shoulder and someone else, frequently, but not always, Camille Desmoulins as the little angel? It's been done to death. Random Germans were already doing it in 1861 (though in this case with Éléonore Duplay taking the role often assigned to Camille). Not only does this tell us nothing about the Revolution, as the article I just linked to points out, it's also extremely tired from a literary standpoint.

So please, cut it out.
