Hope the hunchback is ok

(Presume that no-one has been caught up in the fire as there are no reports of that)

Absolutely gutted about this. I went there the summer before starting uni when I was still waiting for my A level results, lit one of the votives to pray for good results but didn’t donate towards the votive… did excellently in the exams and then was miserable at uni. Karma innit.

Very fond memories of being there though :sob:

The spire’s gone. There’s something fucking awful about watching a piece of incredible history and culture disappear forever.

Something about mortality or something, dunno

Sorry that’s quite trite of me. Police have confirmed no fatalities so far and let’s all hope it stays that way.

This was apparently being renovated. Humans cannot do anything right, can we? We fuck everything up.

yeah, this is it

was thinking that it doesn’t matter compared to the atrocities so many people on our planet are subject to on a daily basis, but… yeah. fuck.

sometimes it feels like beauty is the one redeeming thing in our lives, and it’s a different kind of tragedy to lose something like this.

Fucking hell this is awful

Very sad when anything like this happens but all art and monuments have their time, imagine trying to live with all of human history surrounding you.

Let’s hope nobody is seriously hurt
