我要讓大家知道，IB diploma的Social Study是多麼的難讀，多麼的需要自學能力，多麼的有機會給你萌!!
(Robespierre and Saint-Just)
The aim of this investigation is to proof the unusual relationship between the two revolutionaries in the era of the French Revolution. Evidences are quoted from the fiction biliographies The Snow Palace and The Thermidor, and the documents from Saint-Just's letters.
Summary of the Evidences:
"All I know is that I'd die for you."
-Saint-Just to Robespierre in Pam Gems' The Snow Palace
"you whom I know as I know God by your miracles, I address myself to you, monsieur, to beg you to join with me in saving my poor region."
-Saint-Just, in his first letter to Robespierre
"...[Robespierre] always liked flowers. Saint-Just used to bring him roses by the armful, like a young bride."
史學家的見證。而且，還要像年輕新娘一樣捧著。Robespierre like flower但沒有説一定要玫瑰啊
"You have been thinking and still are thinking of yourself. But I am thinking-- about you too. And so I have no interest in myself. I am too occupied with trying to find you again."
-Saint-Just to Robespierre in Przybyszewska's Thermidor
< p>"There's nothing sexual between them. Danton would tell you, Robespierre he never-- But emotionally, idealistically, a sort of wedding. And in these realms where, even sexless, gender roles are adopted, Maximilien has become the 'woman.'"
提及了Danton，大概因為在 Saint-Just還沒介入NC前，Danton和Robespierre是很親密的戰友，以他對Robespiere地了解或許要比Saint- Just多。
"The shadow of Robespierre. Wherever he goes, I go. Except here-- he doesn't like women."
-Saint-Just in The Reign of Terror
"They saw a very young and exceedingly handsome man, with a pale, oval face, brilliant blue eyes, and brown hair well tended. His white skin and the care with which he was dressed suggested an aristocrat, as did also a certain disdainful haughtiness in his manner. His blue coat with gold buttons fitted him to perfection and showed off his slender height... His mouth was sensitive, small and somewhat feminine."
"At first glance, one could almost mistake you for a human being."

很明顯的是個很官網同人網，裡面還有同人漫和同人文(Rose of Versaille),資料很豐富，連Saint-Just的手稿都有。
但是internal essay沒有homoerotic pleasure這個題目!!(廢柴了)
