should I liveblog watching Rose of Versailles? I think I should.
Our story so far: Oscar is a badass lady raised like a guy and  is Marie Antoinette’s crossdressing bodyguard. She and Marie have a mutual crush going. And of course people are trying to kill each other for the throne.
Every single thing that happens in this show will have dramatic music, a freeze frame, sparkling, random blooming roses, and weighty pauses where people glare at each other.
I totally love that these evil guys just hang out in the basement and play with knives. Fondle them. throw them at random barrels. They’re evil okay. Also that guy’s mustache is so amazing.

I love how Oscar is constantly like “MARIE IS SO BEAUTIFUL SHE IS SO TRUE TO HER EMOTIONS SHE IS AN ANGEL”

I can’t wait till Rosalie joins the gang and ladylove becomes TEXT

With Rosalie flat out saying she has a crush on Oscar and “HOW DO I HAVE THESE FEELINGS ABOUT ANOTHER WOMAN I’M SO CONFUSED”

and Oscar being like “IT’S OKAY ROSALIE IF YOU WERE A MAN I’D MARRY YOU DON’T WORRY ABOUT IT”

The translation of the manga stopped so I had to stop reading when Jeanne or someone tried to disgrace Marie by saying she had a lesbian affair with Oscar

and Oscar was like “ME OSCAR A LESBIAN WHO WOULD THINK THAT”

um anyone who has heard you talk about Marie and Rosalie Oscar

anyone at all

this is an excellent excellent story is what i’m saying.

Oscar: I DON’T EVER WANT TO SEE YOUR FACE AGAIN! GET LOST!

Andre: Oscar…h-how could you?

I find it oddly adorable Andre has nightmares where Oscar backhands him and tells him to GET LOST and dramatically rides away on her horse while he keens “NO OSCAR DON’T GO WHAT DID I DO WROOOONG!”

basically he is the smoopy shoujo heroine always pining endlessly over her  and she is the stoic hero being like “NO TIME FOR ROMANTIC SHIT WE HAVE STUFF TO DO” and it’s great

though maybe he should see someone about these dreams, it’s kind of weird.
