Oh dear, oh dear. Blame this on [livejournal.com profile] alina_kotik, who got me rereading, and then failed to shoot me down when I mentioned the possibility of fic.

"Well, what do you think of the Count of Monte Cristo?" asked Franz of his friend.

"What do I think of him?" said Albert, obviously astonished that his companion should ask him such a question. "I think he is a charming man who does the honours of his table to perfection; a man who has seen much, studied much, and thought much; who, like Brutus, belongs to the school of the Stoics, and who possesses most excellent cigars," he added appreciatively, sending out a whiff of smoke which rose to the ceiling in spirals.

"But did you notice how attentively he looked at you?"

"At me?"

"Yes."

Albert thought for a moment.

"Ah, that is not surprising," he said with a sigh. "I have been away from Paris for nearly a year, and my clothes must have become old-fashioned. The Count probably thinks I come from the provinces..."


-Alexandre Dumas, The Count of Monte Cristo
