i like the idea of the amis being really protective of Grantaire it just makes me real happy like someone says a thing about him and he sort of takes it because he’s used to people being rude to his face so it’s fine he can deal with it but the second his back is turned the amis have banded together to physically throw this person out the door because really, how dare they
One of my least favourite dialogue tropes is when a man tells a woman “you can’t do that” or “I wouldn’t do that if I were you” and she says “why? because I’m a woman and therefore too weak to handle this/can’t take care of myself?” or something to that extent and the guy replies with “no, because everyone who tried that ended up with a bullet in their brain” or something equally reasonable and not gender specific that paints him as the rational not sexist guy and the woman as irrational paranoid feminist who searches for sexism in everything. This whole scenario is built on the idea that sexism is over and women’s fears and suspicions don’t have a leg to stand on. It’s also self-congratulatory pseudofeminism bc it’s supposed to make the viewer/reader/listener feel that in this specific work of fiction women are treated respectfully and as equal with men.
can a dinosaur even get more fuckin rad?
you bet jurassican
i am so impressed by that dinosaur and that pun congratulations
“Enjolras was a charming young man, who was capable of being terrible. He was angelically beautiful. He was Antinous wild. You would have said, to see the thoughtful reflection of his eye, that he had already, in some preceding existence, passed through the revolutionary apocalypse.”
Absolutely gorgeous Enjolras portrait - I think you’ve caught the balance between strength of features and that fragility Hugo describes. Beautiful technique here - very arresting eyes, which I think is an important quality in a portrait of Enjolras, and also his androgny which I think can be difficult and elusive to catch.

Cosette gently asking her father if they can go to the nearest library and she takes a card and each week, she takes home a lot of books and some dvds and avidly read and watch them. Valjean starts to buy her books too. Then, on the TV once she catches the beginning of a tv show she’s heard two girls talk about, and Valjean and her ends up watching the episodes together. And Cosette gets really into it? Valjean would be ready to buy her the dvds because “no, Cosette, even watching in streaming and not downloading is illegal, and you know what i’ve told you about doing illegal things.”
So dvds it is. But it doesn’t mean that the internet is off limits. Cosette uses it at the library because Valjean has an old computer that doesn’t have such a good connection, and she discovers forums and she watches youtube videos (and maybe she’s really fond of les amis de l’abc? there’s this cute guy who sometimes appears in the video of that “courfeyrac” guy and wow he’s fine)
For her seventeen birthday, she asks for her own computer and wifi and of course Valjean would never deny her anything. and maybe she starts her own youtube videos, and begins to talk to Cute Guy (who’s older, so she doesn’t talk to Valjean about it) and one day at school she makes a reference and THE OTHER GIRLS DON’T GET IT, and she smiles and instead of mocking them she explains it to them.
Because Cosette is a fucking darling.
(thanks so much for that!!!)
Little Cosette having bad dreams and Valjean doing a big show of checking under the bed and in all of the wardrobes so she knows she’s safe.
Valjean having nightmares about his time in prison and waking up in a cold sweat to find nine-year-old Cosette opening the wardrobes for him to show him that it’s okay.
