Fan fiction, and bad fan fiction at that The most common mistake early fan fiction writers made was the creation of a Mary Sue In prehistoric Star Trek fan fic, the Mary Sue was usually the female ensign that was brilliant, reserved and beautiful only to the special few who could see past her reserve This might be Kirk, once Ensign Mary Sue had saved them from attacking Romulans As fan fic expanded, the Mary Sue included both fangirls and fanboys.

Fruit Of Years Of Research, TRIANON Corrects Many Of The Popular Misconceptions About Louis XVI And Marie Antoinette The Novel Chronicles Their Resolution And Dignity In The Face Of Crushing Disappointments, Innumerable Humiliations, Personal And National Tragedy, And Death Itself What Distinguishes This Short And Readable Book From Others Is Vidal S Examining Their Lives In Light Of Their Catholic Faith In A Country That, Until The Revolution, Was The Eldest Daughter Of The Church Mike May, Pittsburgh Magazine, March Exhaustively Researched And Yet Completely Accessible For Those Ð read ↠´ Trianon: A Novel of Royal France by Elena Maria Vidal ↠´ Who Wish To Understand The Events From A Very Personal Perspective Genevieve Kineke, Canticle Magazine, May June,
A less than valiant attempt by the author to raise some compassion for Marie Antoinette Without a dog in the fight, I was ready to be swayed and brought to my knees in anger at the relentless, unfair treatment of the royal family during la Revolution Sadly Vidal offered no tangible evidence that dissuade the notion that Antoinette was entirely disconnected from the trials of the poor or to support the fact that she was completely innocent of the claims laid against her by multiple historians With today s pop culture media, I can surely appreciate that there were plenty of exaggerations and even gasp total lies circulated about the Queen As an example, I certainly do NOT believe that a daughter of Marie Theresa would ever climb atop and dance the length of The dialogue seemed a bit contrived to me, and I think it would have benefited from a simpler writing style, but Elena Vidal s brilliant interpretation of Marie Antoinette s life than makes up for any literary faults with its honest and beautiful depiction of famous and some not so famous historical personalities and its white knuckled faithfulness to actual events I did find her take on Louis XVI to be a bit too sympathetic in my opinion, though This book felt like a drink of water compared to all of the complete crap about Marie Antoinette that has been shoved down our throats by popular histories , novels, and films.
Å Trianon: A Novel of Royal France à A very good story of Marie Antoinette and the French Revolution It cuts through a lot of the myths that surround her, and the French Revolution My only warning is that the story isn t seen through the eyes of the same person for than one chapter, and it is not in chronological order So the material in the story is extremely good, but it could have perhaps been written better style wise.
Wow As a child in public school in the US, I never thought to question what I was taught I believed my history lessons about the French revolution to be true As a grown Catholic, I have been finding that a lot of the history books have been very skewed For a balanced view of King Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette, please read this book I like the book Its very spiritual and shows the softer or, let me rephrase that, the spiritual side of the royals I still have a long way but once i finish reading the book, will write a conclusion to my review So far, so good.
