when reading tfc I always forget that Andrew is so much shorter than Neil.
“so much shorter” oh my gosh what is this shortie competition in my askbox
okay but speaking as a shortie (5′1″ on a good day), my 5′3″ friends give me so much shit. it’s not fair how much those four-three inches matter
I imagine Neil lords it over Andrew in tiny obnoxious ways too
like he sometimes will just stand at his side and look smugly at the top of his head (until Andrew elbows him in the gut)
or he’ll lend Andrew jogging pants and then make a “oh but they’d drag, you’d have to roll them up…” mock concerned comment, that prick
or he’d constantly offer to get things from higher shelves even though he can’t really reach either.
( “oh it’s okay andrew, I’ll get it” [seconds later] “I’m going to get kevin” )
“fuck you josten” )
also imagine that whenever Neil and Andrew have their Serious Silent Staring Conversations in the locker room or hallway or dorm room or idfk while washing their hands in a public bathroom, Matt whispering to Dan/ Allison/ Nicky, “look at how short they are. they’re the size of a child. do you think they get discount tickets at waterparks.”
and Allison just, “if we stacked them, they would just be able to ride the big kid rides.”
okay Les Mis has never been about THE French Revolution With Guillotines and Robespierre, but that has gotten more important to realize since Hamillton happened and people started wanting to crossover things
because Lafayette was born in 1757
during the American Revolution, he was in his late teens and 20s
but during the barricades of Les Mis, which were in 1832, he was in his 70s
but it does mean that unless someone wants to follow his possibly apocryphal suggestion to TOSS HIS OLD MAN BODY onto the barricade, he’s not gonna be fighting at the barricade with Les Amis, not because of Complicated Politics but because he is in his 70s and sick and would be actually dead within a couple of years
which doesn’t mean he wasn’t involved! He was! But he involved in the political side. So unless you’ve got a time machine (which, I WOULD READ THAT FIC) he’s not gonna be Young Hot Lafayette joining in with a sword to fight.
full offence, but oh sehun was put in exo for a reason. he’s literally the GLUE that keeps them close. he has terrible humor that always makes me laugh, he has a really nice flow when he raps, he’s an AMAZING dancer and his singing voice is really cute.
