H-France Reviews - Taking Liberties: from the French Revolution to Napoleon
Rebecca Spang’s erudite yet immensely entertaining paper is a study of “frivolity” in the era of the Directory, commonly associated with light-heartedness, superficiality and even lewd behaviour after the austerity of the Terror. French writers attempting to defend their national character argued that only a small percentage were truly “frivolous”; at any rate, the idea that frivolity, like political upheaval, might be specific to the French, served to reassure conservative foreign readers--the British in particular--that the threat of Revolution was contained. However, Spang goes beyond this assertion to examine the underlying causes of the French reputation for frivolity, and argues that an interesting shift was taking place: “luxury” was gradually replaced by “pleasure”, a more personalized category. Whereas “luxury” had some negative connotations left over from the era of the Maximum, “pleasure” was increasingly associated with Paris shops and goods, and consumption of “frivolous” items perceived by lawmakers and administrators as “an economic imperative for the nation” (p. 122). Some of the themes described will be familiar to those who know Spang’s earlier piece with Colin Jones, but their inclusion here is important for the volume and does not seem repetitive.[3]

Ignis/unknown, unfortunate secret admirer(s)
Someone keeps on leaving flowers and other gifts on Ignis’s desk, delivered to his house, or left in places Ignis would find them. Ignis, who is very much not a romantic, finds the attentions bothersome and irritating. Especially because he is allergic to flower pollen, and the flowers keep getting left in front of the fan in his office, and the chocolates melt on important paperwork, and other things that drive Ignis up the walls.

+++ Ignis discovers who it is, and tells them that he will go on a date with them if they promise never to make an extravagant romantic gesture ever again, because he will kill them.

Prompto dies and is replaced by an MT
MT, escapes and finds Prompto’s body and decides, in order to hide in plain sight, he can take over where the other left off. He learns bit by bit who the blond was and what he left behind. He learns about friendship, and love, and freedom, but as he learns about his emotions, a part of him always goes back to the body he burried in a shallow, unmarked grave, and he wonders if the real Prompto died scared and alone, or if he had been expecting his friends to find him, but now they never would. No one would mourn real Prompto’s loss, because he is too selfish to tell anyone the truth of what happened, and how he stole the clothes and identity of a corpse.

+up to you if they go on living their life unknowing, they discover fake prompto’s lie, or he finally has a tell tale heart moment and breaks down and admits.
++every time they camp near the location of the grave, he visits it and talks to the man he never knew about the life he stole.

The Invention of the Restaurant — Rebecca L. Spang | Harvard University Press
During the 1760s and 1770s, those who were sensitive and supposedly suffering made public show of their delicacy by going to the new establishments known as “restaurateurs’ rooms” and there sipping their bouillons. By the 1790s, though, the table was variously seen as a place of decadent corruption or democratic solidarity. The Revolution’s tables were sites for extending frugal, politically correct hospitality, and a delicate appetite was a sign of counter-revolutionary tendencies. The restaurants that had begun as purveyors of health food became symbols of aristocratic greed. In the early nineteenth century, however, the new genre of gastronomic literature worked within the strictures of the Napoleonic police state to transform the notion of restaurants and to confer star status upon oysters and champagne. Thus, the stage was set for the arrival of British and American tourists keen on discovering the mysteries of Frenchness in the capital’s restaurants. From restoratives to Restoration, Spang establishes the restaurant at the very intersection of public and private in French culture—the first public place where people went to be private.

Usable yet Useless: Why Every Business Needs Product Discovery
The Lean Startup concept of “Minimum Viable Product” is certainly useful, but shouldn’t we rather focus on Minimum Desirable Products? What’s the use of fast iteration if all it does is get us to the local maximum more quickly?

Once something has shipped, you can either iterate or pivot. Iteration is great if you’re on the right path. Pivoting is dangerous because changing course can wreak havoc on employees and users alike.

Regardless of the physical output, at the end of the process you should be able to answer the following questions with ease:

What is the problem we are trying to solve?
For whom are we solving it? Why should they care?
What’s the vision for the solution?
What’s in it for us?
What’s our implementation plan?
The real power of this process is that it will give your team comfort that you’ve introduced enough variation into the design process to ensure you’re not climbing the wrong mountain to a local maximum.

let’s discover before we build.

Octo!Bro/other bros, mistaken rescue
Octo!bro witnesses threw humans playing, and mistakes one getting playfully dunked as an attack. Worried that the one human (who looks really bad a swimming) is going to be overcome and drowned by the other two, Octo!bro swoops in and rescues the one being threatened, and uses his remaining tentacles to keep the others away, while making sure not to hurt them or let them follow him too far out into the deep.

+bro that is octopus witnessed a ship wreck when younger, and found many dead bodies that leaves him very fearful for and protective of humans
++they notice it isn’t trying to hurt them and seems genuinely scared for the struggling human in its grasp as it soothingly chirps and tries to comfort the human it rescued while growling at the other two.
+++they tempt it back to a beach house, and instantly make a pact not to tell anyone about the surprisingly sweet creature, and the creature decides to stay and learn in exchange for large fish to feed its new family (or mates)

How Public Eating Establishments Began as Cozy Restoratives - latimes
Under Napoleon, one learns, freedom of religion and the freedom to pursue gastronomic, theatrical and other pleasures were not only allowed, but encouraged. One censor even alerted his superiors to an impending shortage of "literary and theatrical gossip." If citizens lost interest in debating the merits of rival actresses, the censor warned, they might turn to politics! A citizenry more interested in gossip and private appetites than in current events and public issues? Does this sound familiar?
