Krum attacked Fleur, who responded with “Sacré bleu!” This exclamation is a phrase with many possible meanings and connotations. Literally, it translates to ‘sacred blue’, a phrase which does not appear to make much literal sense, and might lead an earwitness to suspect that the speaker is invoking some kind of nefarious coded phrase. The French invented it as a way to swear without invoking the name of God, as ‘bleu’ and ‘Dieu’ are similar sounding words, such as ‘look’ and ‘book’, or ‘code’ and ‘forebode’, or even ‘last breath’ and ‘painful death’.
This history, while fascinating, is not in fact relevant to this situation. For I, dear reader, happen to be privy to exactly what the young Miss Delacour meant when she exclaimed “Sacré bleu!”, thanks to a chance interview in a crowded fish statue three years after the fact. And so “Sacré bleu” in fact here means ‘oh fucking shit’.
I haven’t posted this here but I did on Twitter??? I’m a mess.
Since everyone’s been reblogging that quick old sketch I did on Bhooma Devi (the Hindu Earth goddess), I drew a nicer one. (Her sacred fruit is the pomegranate and her sacred flower is the blue water lily.)
The paladins introduce Allura to the age-old Earthling game of truth or
dare. Keith shares unwelcome knowledge about his sex habits. Hunk may or
may not eat a sock. Somehow, sexual tension and relief ensues. Also,
there are jokes.
i apologize for the memes, but be aware, it’s about 80% jokes, 20% smut
