We seek him here, we seek him there,
Those fangirls seek him everywhere!
Is that really not how it goes?
Well, in case you don't know what I'm talking about, I will try to coherently explain.
*tries unsuccessfully to snap out of crazy fangirl mode*
His name is Sir Percy Blakeney. He is really too amazing to be an ordinary human, but so much the better. I like larger-than-life and better-than-life heroes. :) And sink me, m'dear, but he really is larger than life. He can find a solution to every situation, is horribly (yes, horribly; some of those he impersonates are quite horrible) good at acting and impersonating, is and impudent, and has excellent taste in cravats. :D
|my sentiments exactly|
Er, Chauvelin. He is Sir Percy's worst enemy and someone who you love to hate. He is very good at concocting plans against Sir Percy, but his problem is just that. They're against Sir Percy, so he doesn't have a chance.
And then there is Marguerite, Lady Blakeney. She and I have much in common, I think, especially our craziness about Sir Percy. But while she always does something impulsive whenever Percy is in danger, I think indesisive me, worrying that it would mess up his plans, would stay at home and cry. Whenever Marguerite does something impulsive I feel like saying:
One of my real stubbornesses about her is that everybody gets her looks wrong. She is beautiful, yes, but her hair is blonde. It has to be. Baroness Orczy speaks of her hair as 'golden glory' and a certificate that seems to have been made for her describes her as having 'light hair, blue eyes.'
So far I have read The Scarlet Pimpernel, El Dorado, and The League of the Scarlet Pimpernel. If you haven't read any of these, well, as Alexandra says, get thee to a library!
P.S. If you happen to see me sometime in the near future, I'll probably be doing math. And the math will probably consist of staring at horrible algebra problems and writing over all my scrap paper: "I seek it here, I seek it there, I seek the answer everywhere!"
