I’m from Mattel. Well, I’m not really from Mattel, I’m actually from a smaller company that was purchased by Mattel in a leveraged buyout.
Sam is very modest but, he is Jamie Fraser. I mean, he is entirely decent, kind and lovely man. And I’m really, sincerely mean, he is exactly what you see, he is a good guy. x

HISTORY MEME - FRANCE VERSION ♛ [05/07] pairings : Arthur Rimbaud & Paul Verlaine (1871-1875)
Rimbaud sent Verlaine two letters with several of his poems, including the hypnotic. Verlaine was intrigued by Rimbaud, and replied, “Come, dear great soul. We await you; we desire you,” sending him a one-way ticket to Paris. Rimbaud arrived in late September 1871 and resided briefly in Verlaine’s home. Verlaine’s wife, Mathilde Mauté, was seventeen years old and pregnant, and Verlaine had recently left his job and started drinking. Rimbaud and Verlaine began a short and torrid affair. They led a wild, vagabond-like life spiced by absinthe and hashish. The Parisian literary coterie was scandalized by Rimbaud, whose behaviour was that of the archetypal enfant terrible, yet throughout this period he continued to write striking, visionary verse. Their stormy relationship eventually brought them to London in September 1872, a period over which Rimbaud would later express regret. During this time, Verlaine abandoned his wife and infant son (both of whom he had abused in his alcoholic rages). In England they lived in considerable poverty in Bloomsbury and in Camden Town, scraping a living mostly from teaching, plus an allowance from Verlaine’s mother. The relationship between the two poets grew increasingly bitter. In late June 1873, Verlaine returned to Paris alone, but quickly began to mourn Rimbaud’s absence. On 8 July he telegraphed Rimbaud, asking him to come to the Hotel Liège in Brussels. The reunion went badly, they argued continuously, and Verlaine took refuge in heavy drinking. On the morning of 10 July, Verlaine bought a revolver and ammunition. About 16:00, “in a drunken rage”, he fired two shots at Rimbaud, one of them wounding the 18-year-old in the left wrist. Rimbaud initially dismissed the wound as superficial but had it dressed at the St-Jean hospital nevertheless. He did not immediately file charges, but decided to leave Brussels. About 20:00, Verlaine and his mother accompanied Rimbaud to the Gare du Midi railway station. On the way, by Rimbaud’s account, Verlaine “behaved as if he were insane”. Fearing that Verlaine “might give himself over to new excesses”, Rimbaud “ran off” and “begged a policeman to arrest him”. Verlaine was charged with attempted murder, then subjected to a humiliating medico-legal examination. He was also interrogated about his correspondence with Rimbaud and the nature of their relationship. The bullet was eventually removed on 17 July and Rimbaud withdrew his complaint. The charges were reduced to wounding with a firearm, and on 8 August 1873 Verlaine was sentenced to two years in prison. Rimbaud returned home to Charleville.
