The People Too Must Rise -> Les Misérables Wizarding World AU

Fifteen years after Voldemort and the Battle at Hogwarts, that period of history has faded out of common conversation and slipped into the textbooks used in History of Magic classes; all seems to be well in the eyes of many, yet a new and much more subtle threat begins to emerge. With the sudden appointment of a seemingly-charming man as the new Minister of Magic, an institutionalized prejudice begins to be instated. Hidden behind smiles and claims for a “better, more organized world,” blood and ancestry is given greater importance than ever before. Pureblood, halfblood, and muggleborn become labels that systemically define and categorize people in unfair ways, affecting their wages, their families, and their lives. With a campaign that’s becoming increasingly more sinister, the Ministry of Magic claims it is all for the better, and so many blindly follow or are too scared to defy those who lead.

Enjolras, a halfblood Gryffindor student, intently follows the news and sees this systemic oppression for what it truly is. The catalyst for change comes when one elderly Ministry worker named Lamarque dares to try to speak out, and he “tragically dies” in an “accident” for his trouble. Enraged and determined, Enjolras begins to spread active awareness amongst those at Hogwarts, and students from all houses begin to listen. His impassioned speeches lead to the formation of a group, which is appropriately named Lamarque’s Army. House hostilities are forgotten in the face of a larger prejudice, and the group quickly comes to care for not only their cause but each other. Amongst them are Enjolras’ closest friend, a clever halfblooded Ravenclaw whose straightforward strategies keep them all organized; the pureblooded Slytherin girl who always fights for the good, though her parents are in Azkaban; the muggleborn Hufflepuff, who strings together beautiful words to inspire everyone and is perhaps the fiercest of them all; and the Gryffindor boy who is publicly labelled a blood traitor by his wealthy pureblood family for fighting for the cause. Their efforts catch the eye of the Ministry and The Daily Prophet, and a Ministry worker named Javert is sent to discourage such “unruly misconduct.” Headmaster Valjean, who is clearly on the revolutionaries’ side, consistently attempts to dissuade Javert and keep Hogwarts in line, as other students take the Ministry’s words to heart and become violent.

Forced to be stealthy and work in secret, hated for fighting against hate, Lamarque’s Army makes the Wizarding World wake up, take notice, and consult history. Though many have not forgotten the horrors of fifteen years prior, even more don’t truly understand or weren’t taught the whole story. Voldemort’s evil began with his own prejudices, and though this threat does not have his mark, it is not any less of a danger.

I picked up this comic on a complete whim bUT THIS IS THE FIRST TIME I HAVE EVER ACTIVELY RELATED TO FLUTTERS BUT IT’S SO ACCURATE HELP

I fell asleep while finishing my workshop piece even though I actually would have had it sent in on time for once and I just woke up and finally just sent it and feel like crap: A memoir by me. 

lucretiafly started following you

wow. Okay, so true story. When I woke up super early this morning and I opened up tumblr I was still tired (actually I’m still tired (actually I’m always tired)) I was like “what? I got a new follower? since when?” and then I looked and I’m like “oh, cool, pokemon”. So that’s pretty much the story. Anyway, thank you.

  • Naha:I am totally okay with any delays that involve Xella actually doing something for herself
  • Xella:I'll try to get you something before tomorrow morning but I'm also having to clean my bathroom b/c my toilet is leaking so no promises once the whole "wait 15-30 minutes for the drain-o to work" part of the cycle is over
  • Naha:Oh isn't that always a blast
  • Naha:Okie dokie, just let me know / leave me messages for me to hopefully not overlook in the morning
  • Xella:/steam to eat
  • Naha:I spent all day fighting with a fucking virus and trying to split a video
  • Xella:cyrus the virus?
  • Naha:Lol
  • Naha:Fucking weirdest reference ever
  • Xella:nah not really
  • Xella:cyrus the virus is from con air, con air is prominent in homestuck
  • Naha:That strikes me as even weirder
  • Xella:the number of times flash animations pop up playing "how do I live" remixes in that webcomic
