Sydney with my dearest hopes, I hope you are able to stop drinkingand turn your life around.
I thank you, my dear Lucy for your encouragement to help me with my problem.... (downs 6th shot of alcoholic beverage)

Sydney, I pity you, you are not beyond salvation. Start over, you are capable of this. If you would do anything for me, regain your life, seek salvation. @sydneycarton #LucieMannette
Dearest Sydney, turning your life around would have a great effect for you. Humbly pray to God that he may turn you into a gallant man. Your drinking problems are the cause of all your life problems. Take care of yourself. @sydneycarton #LucieMannette
Mr. Carton, though you may not know me, I am an associate of Mr. Lorry and was present at the trial in which you resembled the accused, obliterating the case against him. I know that prior to the instance and still to this day you work with Mr. Stryver. What has been troubling for almost a year is how exactly Mr. Lorry found you amongst the midst of London. The odds of him having a client and a witness resembling each other are astronomical, and can only be counted as a miracle, though due to our relationship of animosity, for me, maybe it ought to be called a curse. I am trying to piece together the case for a peace of mind, and any information you could give concerning the situation would be very helpful, indeed.
Sydney, I can tell that you have an interest in my daughter. I do believe that she cares about you, but she is in love with Darnay. I hope that you have the ability to regain motivation and confidence and turn your lifestyle around. You have potential to become a better man. Do not give up.
Sydney Carton, I am afraid that your love, Lucy Manette is married to Mr.Darnay. I feel bad for you but there are other women so I advise you to dress better and make you manners better. you have the ability just change your style. You are drinking too much.I f you do what I say, you will be married soon. Sydney, do not get discouraged about the marriage.
My dear Mr. Carton, you mustn't let this Manette girl get you down like this! Come now, I know that a drink or two could cheer you up. Or, at least, the drinks could help you forget about this whole ordeaal. #Stryver
My fellow gentlemen, I truly appreciate your concerns for my well-being. However, I cannot change my ways. I shall remain the same and grow only worse in condition. God bless you merry gentlemen. #SydneyCarton
If I would choose you, would your condition improve? These times are tough, you know.
But, my dear friend, what have I told you recently? You simply can not continue your "ways," especially if you wish to obtain the love and respect of Miss Lucie. Although, if you were to not love Lucie anymore, I would be fine with that...
above post @Sydney Carton
To be honest, you are pitiful. I feel a deep regret for your utter lack of coherent thought anymore. It is saddening to know that you have given up, essentially. There is significant promise in you, but you choose to waste it in cheap wine and beer. You are, in essence, a disgrace. Redemption is an option, but you decide to sulk further. I know that you could be a respectable man. The saddest part is seeing your potential being wasted, like a peach rotting in the sun.
Carton was an excellent man in the end. He DID turn his life around and amassed to a greater potential that he could ever have. Through self-sacrifice, he has helped the lives of the good, and has finally reached peace with himself. How can you not say that this is not an honorable man.
I can that you affections for my Lucie and care for her very much. Not to offend you, however, I would like Charles Darney to be my daughter's suitor. I understand that you are really a great man inside, but now, in your condition, I am afraid my Lucie is not suitable for you. Be the change that you want to see. I know you can do it my boy. #Doctor Manette
Sydney, though my husband has not noticed it, i can tell that deep down you are a tender, sweet, and kind man. In my eyes, but maybe not in others, i believe your honesty is very laudable! #LucieMannete
While all of you have caught on to my darkness and depression, you are not willing to look past that. I told Lucie that we could never be together not only because I knew it was true, but also because I want her to be happy. Charles is the better version of me that will essentially be better for her. I allowed Darnay to be freed from his trial even though it made me a suspect for being a traitor.
Mr. Carton, I believe that you are pathetic and that your proposal of friendship to me is being driven by ulterior motives. I believe that you are in love with Lucie and are attempting to court her, by emotionally manipulating her to sympathize with you. It is because of this that I advise you to stay away from me and my family, so that we can all move on with our lives.
Why can I not fix myself? Why must I be a drunkard? Why do I feel the need to change but make little to no effort to change myself? Why must Darnay capture her love? After all, he is the nephew of the marquis, and marquis is a cruel man. That just shows what level I have fallen to. #Carton
But, my dear fellow, you can fix yourself. You do not have to be a drunkard. Shed some light and inspiration into your life, and you can succeed. Also, we both are aware that Charles has denounced his family name; he also knows what horrible deeds his dad and uncle have done.
Darnay has always been perfect. He has never struggled with personal issues or finding love. He has never struggled for money. He has never loved someone who does not appreciate him back. He has always been on the right side of history. I, my friend, have been struck by alcoholism; I have remained in a pit of despair for as long as I can remember. My hope of salvation is crippled by Darnay's untouchable perfection. How I envy him! I deserve better. I deserve you, Lucie. Your happiness is all I desire, but it seems you are happy with Darnay.
I truly hope that my husband, Charles, is being kind to you, just as he promised. I also hope that you are changing your life in a positive way. Thank you for being a loyal friend.
Mr. Carton. I am sorry to say that all of the problems you face in life are because of your uncontrolable drinking problem. If you could find a way to fix it, most all of your problems would be gone.
I am sorry that the doll had to see my heart bleed in anguish tonight. I hoped her to see me as I am when I am strong, but 'twas not the case. I suppose it is better this way because the golden thread can then knit me back together.
My dear friend, you cannpt keep chasing after this girl. She is married, and has children! This grief is unhealthy; you must move on.
I suppose you are right Stryer. But it is hard when you have so little in life, and then a glimpse of pure sunlight and happiness crosses into your vision. I cant help but long for it for most of my days.
Bonjour, Monsieur Carton. Comment vous-allez vous aujourd'hui. I heard that you are a very talented lawyer. I myself am a public prosecutor and would like to meet you. Please respond, and we may be able to set a date.
Carton, stand by my daughters decision to not marry you. i feel your constant drinking would harm her and that carles is the right choice for her.
I'm sorry Carton, but I know that Charles and I were made to be with each other... I hope you can understand.
I sincerely applaud your noble efforts today, Mr. Carton. Your recognition of the notorious spy, John Barsad, has proved vital in contributing to rescue Darnay from the revolutionaries. But alas! Darnay has again been wrongfully imprisoned! We must do what we can in our noble attempt to save him...
Dear Sydney Carton,
From my understanding, you are no more than a drunk lawyer. Before you allow this to corrupt yourself by making terrible mistakes, I would advise you to get yourself together. Msr Villefort was a man who once sentenced an innocent person to life in prison, and I see some personal similarities that you and he share. You probably would like to stop with what you are doing and figure our your purpose.
Well I have my golden haired doll, Lucie, to help me in my life. I value her so much that I would do anything for her. I would even risk my life for her.
Although we are friends I will warn you that I am the husband of Lucie, not you. It is fine that you can see her. I can understand that she is a big part of your life, as she is in mine, but I do not want you to court with her. #Charles Darnay
Mr. Carton, please do not harm my brother Solomon. He is a good man, and would never hurt another person.
Miss Pross, you must understand that Solomon is a spy, with an alias of John Barsad. He has committed treasonous acts against England, and is responsible for Darnay's second arrest. He must be punished accordingly.
I understand that you are defending my nephew, Charles Evremonde, or Darnay, in court. Please save him from execution, as he is my only nephew, and heir to my estate.
I understand that you represented Charles Darnay in court in London. While he may be a friend of the people there, he is an enemy here. Do not think that you can save him here, for he is associated with a tyrranical family, one that should be wiped from the face of the Earth.
Mr. Carton, stay away from my lovely wife, Lucie. For, she is truly mine, not yours. She proclaimed her love for me, not you so, please stop trying to steal my wife. Oh, and if you thought that we were friends, we are not.
But, my dear husband, you must remember a couple things. Remember that we have our strength together, and that poor Sydney has his weakness. You must at least reserve more respect for him.
Mr. Carton, Lucie is my beloved daughter and I am very fond of her, and her new spouse. Stay out of their relationship, yet I know you are backing up Mr. Darnay in court, I have a true distaste for you and I do not trust you. Thank You
Mr. Carton, I do wish that you become better, and that you can become a great man, because I know you can. Thank you so much for helping Charles in court, yet I think we should not see eachother anymore, for I am wed now. Please, and I am sorry. Goodbye Sydney Carton, and I believe in you.
#LucieManette or Darnay
Mr. Carton, I truly do believe that you mean well, but I do wish for you to stop flirting with my wife. Since she has made it clear that you and I must remain friends, I give you this friendly warning: While I am locked up in this place, you shall not take advantage of my Lucie's fragile state. She has her father and I shall be reunited with her as well soon enough.
Darnay, I am truly sorry for my behavior towards your wife. She has played such a big part in both of our lives as well as that of her fathers. I do want to become friends with you and form a stronger friendship.
For the last one. #Sydney Carton
Is this really what you want. And if it is not, is there really more too you? Think. What more can you possibly want.
@Man In the Mirror
No matter what everyone tells me, I think I have wasted my life and am cursed for failure, Although Lucie gave me a second chance all I see is people telling me "We're so sorry about your constant life failures. Feel better now already." Everyone is doing something important, the Defarges are out leading a revolution, Darnay and Lucie are happily raising a family, while I am here wasting my life getting drunk. Right now, I think I would have to do something extremely beneficial for my life to ever be of value in this tumultuous time.
Sydney, you have not wasted your life and you are not cursed for failure, but you simply made bad choices. That is in your past and you still have a chance to put it behind you. I love Charles more than words can say and I regret that as long as I love him I'm not able to return your love. Do not spend the rest of your life loving someone who does not love you back. Find someone who loves you and will weep for you.
Sydney, you are not giving yourself enough credit. You are not a worthless man who doesn't care about anything. The other night I saw a whole different side of you. With my best years behind me, you reminded me of how much I miss the glory days where I sat at my mother's side as little Lucie does now. It seems strange how much easier life was in our youth when the world's responsibilities where not weights on our shoulders. Realize, my friend, that you still have the time to change. Stop regretting. In the end, we all want someone to weep for us.
But how can I not see myself as worthless when the love of my life has abandoned me in favor of another? And when this "other" seems to be the most fortunate and qualified man, with scholarly attributes to boot, in the world, how can I not feel ashamed? I regret deeply everything I do, and in such misery I turn to drink.
@SydCarton You happen to look quite a bit like the accused. Charles Darnay. Quite handsome i might add. It is rather impressive. #MadameDefarge #OleErnestDefarge
Alright, I got the chemicals. I just hope ol Cly will keep with his word after that little talk I had with him. Not to mention that was a raging game of cards, too. #Sydney_Carton
Although nothing will ever happen between us, I want you to know that I think of you as a kind man. You have potential if you would only try. Do not give up on your life. Just know that you are always welcome at our home. I have faith in you Sydney. You are a great friend of mine. I want you to take care of yourself. Please do not waste your life drowning in your sorrow.
Thank you for all that you have done for me and my family. I always knew you were such a giving and selfless person. Thank you. You will always be in our hearts.
Yes, I have arrived in Paris! Already I have talked to Miss Pross, Jerry Cruncher, and "Solomon" or really, Barsad. Speaking of Barsad, he must realize that I stick to my word and I will reveal his true identity to the Revolutionaries if he does not follow my words. Now I must go have me a drink or two.
Please do not harm my brother in any way. He does not mean harm. Also, his birth given name is Solomon.
Oh Sydney, how I admire you for defending my now son-in-law in court that one day. How you made everyone think another way by showing everyone your physical resemblance with Charles. Lucie dear has been happy with him, which is what I want the most. I do know that you too in fact take interest in Lucie as well, but you also must understand she is already taken. I do not know what she might do but as long as she does not feel sad, I will approve. Whatever you do Sydney, you shall never not make her happy.
Oh, Mr. Carton, if there was only any other way to relieve your sorrow. Unfortunately, I think fate has chosen this path for both of us, and you will always be welcome at this house. Thank you for all the help you did in acquitting my husband, and I'm sure I can speak for him too when I say thank you.
I will forever be in debt for the lifesaving (quite literally, I must add) service you rendered me. Ever since my first trial, I saw deep internal conflict within you. To offer yourself up for me makes you more of a man than I will ever be. Thank you, Sydney Carton. R.I.P.
I must thank you very much Sydney for all you have done for me and my family . Eventhough I am taken you still stand by me and Charles, and I must thank you for this.
If only I had married you, Carton. I would never had had to deal with all of this revolutionary mess. I am looking back at my decisions, and marrying Darnay may not have been the best choice...
I believe that you can change your ways
Carton, what has prompted you to skulk in the alleys of Paris?
And who is the man that accompanies you?
Why should I continue to live if I have nothing to live for while he has all that I ever wished to live for?
I can't bear to see Lucie Manette so depressed over her dear Charles Darnay. I must fix this...
I give my thanks to you, Sydney Carton, for supporting my family. Even though you are a drunk, you have always arrived at the Manette's household sober, and your true wish is for us to be happy. You try very hard to become a better man, and I think one day you will become one, even if you do not think so yourself. Again, my deepest gratitude towards your good actions.
I believe she was forced into this. I won't just stand here letting HIM have the satisfactory of winning her over. Something must be done.
Thank you for caring for me, Sydney Carton, but my heart belongs to Charles. I love him very much and, with all due respect, was NOT forced into this marraige.
Darnay: Why are you doing this? Wait, what is that in your hand?
Carton: Just be calm Darnay. I am doing this for you and Lucie. Best wishes...
Sydney: Write what I say onto my boot.
Darnay: What is in your hand?
Sydney: Doesn't matter. Just write.
Darnay: All right.
Sydney: (under breathe) Oh lucie... how I will miss you
Darnay: What did you say?
Sydney: nothing. Write "No matter the length I will go, you will always be there for me even if it is not for me. This deed you have done is appreciated by my family greatly. Good bye."
Funny how clever and caring I turned out to be. Giving my life for Charles, figuring out Soloman as soon as I met him. I have been a great help to the Manettes, and even though Lucie may not love me, she will be eternally greatful to me. #sydneycarton
"I am the resurrection and the life, saith the Lord: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: and whosoever liveth and believeth in me, shall never die." #sydneycarton
You remind me of Christ. You not only mutter this phrase, but you also sacrifice your life for the sake of other men. Not to mention, my son talked about YOU on his death bed. #luciemanette
My dear friend, I know you are deeply unsatisfied with your life. You feel that you have wasted your given time on this Earth, and perhaps you could have had more opportunities or a more productive lifestyle, but it still is not too late to change. My father was recalled to life. Even when he thought that his life was cursed to be nothing but darkness and opression forever, he had been given another chance. Perhaps this realization of mediocrity is just the drive you need to become the person you want to be. It is never to late to repent and change. Always remember that, my dear friend.
Once again I was mistaken for the dear Charles Darnay. The guards were intending to arrest him! How dreadful! I wonder what will happen to him and the Manettes?
Halloa Mr. Sydney Carton, I want to thank you again for saving me of the death penalty for which I could have received. I know that you worked very hard. Also I know that you worked hard on the case not Stryver. However, I do beg of you to leave my family and me alone. I hope all is well and you are getting better. Maybe a beverage soon? See ya! #CharlesDarnay
Please do not get me wrong when I say this, but I sometimes wonder how things would have turned out if I had married you. Of course I love Charles and Little Lucie more than anything in this world, yet I find it inevitable to keep myself from thinking if I made a mistake. No, I couldn't have. Everything happens for a reason, unless this one time was an exception.
Having known you for a short while, I feel as though you are misunderstood as many powerful people have been. With my elderly wisdom, I can tell that your heart has been broken by something unbeknownst to me. I can see ,however, that my Ladybird has given you some since of hope, her family as well. In my heart, I know that somehow you will rise to the occasion and do something that will do your heart good. I wish you the best and I bid you godspeed.
Always being confused for my doppelganger, Darnay. More alike on the outside than anything. Lucie is worried sick, now that he's been tossed behind the irons. The Guillotine is possible, more likely with all this madness in the present time.
Maybe a drink to calm my nerves, yes I think that would do me good.
So Jerry would you like to go and gamble and drink a little just for fun. You kind of look lonely without anything to do in your dirty clothers, even though it is quite nice. I just ran out of money and my friend ain't willing to lend any to me.
Er, my apologies about the Mrs... can we agree to be friends?
Aaaaaaaannnnnnnnnnnnddddddddddddddd I'm dead.
A tear shed for those lost
We all see Carton as a hero.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
