Is it weird I’m annoyed at how everyone is so pretty? Like, what’s the bloody point of having such a cute Charles Henri-Sanson? Or such a hot phantom of the Opera? What is he conflicted about - his beautiful straight nose? His pouty, kissable lips? Surely some characters could be not so hot?

...like Julius Cesar, who is fat... for some reason.

And WTF is going on with Artemis’s body that even her little bear is compelled to do a full-blown butt-n-boobs pose??
