“The world is a harum-scarum place…They say that long ago it was simple and quiet, but that might be a legend.“ #tattoo #tattoos #girlswithtattoos #aseriesofunfortunateevents #asoue #lemonysnicket #quote
Here we have the famous fate of the Quagmire triplets (Hector and the Widdershins, too). I think it’s important to remember that they chose to take their chances with the great unknown, though it also seems like they could have changed their mind at the last second since Kit says they couldn’t manage to reach her in time. They ambiguity of their fate is emphasized by the idea that they were either ‘swallowed up or rescued’, and, at this point in time, we do not know what their fate was. The connections between the mysterious question mark and the bombinating beast is not confirmed at this point in ATWQ, though ATWQ4 could potentially change everything.
This is also where the Violet/Quigley/Duncan love triangle is introduced. I really dislike this love triangle and question its legitimacy, but it is here.
i liked asoue fine and the basic eight was my book all the way through high school but now daniel handler’s just that middle aged dude that told me to my (twitter) face that he was a superior critical feminist than i was because i like femmes fatales, so someday we’re gonna get into a fight
“My name is Lemony Snicket and it is my duty to tell you their tale. No one knows the precise cause of the Baudelaire fire, but just like that, the Baudelaire children became the Baudelaire orphans." -A Series of Unfortunate Events (2004)
The movie you are about to see is extremely unpleasant. If you wish to see a film about a happy little elf, I’m sure there is still plenty of seating in theatre number two. However, if you like stories about clever and reasonably attractive orphans, suspicious fires, carnivorous leeches, Italian food and secret organizations, then stay, as I retrace each and every one of the Baudelaire children’s woeful steps. My name is Lemony Snicket, and it is my sad duty to document this tale.
