Coming up after this awkward pause, some exclusive clips from my recent three-hour interview with myself, in which I interrogated myself on my motivations, where I am in life, why I’m not in a different place in life, whose fault that is, and why I said that one embarrassing thing once.
I’ve been reading Les Misérables for a while now and I got to the point where the Amis are introduced and described and… I think the fandom takes Hugo calling Grantaire ‘ugly’ too literally?
From what I’m reading it sounds more like he means that Grantaire is ugly in personality/character, not looks. I mean… this is Victor Hugo. If he wanted it to be clear that R is hideous to look at, he would have given SOME kind of descriptor of his appearance, even a small one. But the version of the Brick that I have just leaves it at one sentence.
So, yeah, I think he means Grantaire has an ugly personality. Not that he’s physically ugly.
yall i remember that one post that said george blagden’s bottles were filled with grape juice while filming les mis and CAN YOU IMAGINE what if R actually just drinks bottles and bottles of grape juice and everyone just assumes it’s alcohol no one actually knows what’s in it and R never bothered to tell anyone so every time someone gives him the Disappointed Look™️ when they see him drinking he’s like???? why do they have a problem with me drinking juice?? why do all my friends hAtE mE????
AND ONE DAY during a meeting someone (let’s say courfeyrac) goes hey R can i have some of that and he’s like yeah sure and the MOMENT he realises what he’s drinking he spits a mouthful of GRAPE JUICE all over the place and he’s like “R IS THIS??? G R A P E JUICE??” and R just?? yes?? what did you think it was?
“and you’ve been drinking THIS the whole time?”
“uh yeah?? i just never understood why all of you have a problem with it. i mean yeah it’s not the best fruit juice yknow like apple juice is great and all but i personally pre-“
“R HAVE YOU BEEN DRINKING GRAPE JUICE AND ONLY GRAPE JUICE IN THOSE BOTTLES THE W H O L E TIME?”
“yes? did you.. did you only just find out?”
“GRANTAIRE WE THOUGHT YOU HAD A DRINKING PROBLEM WE WERE ALL GENUINELY CONCERNED FOR YOU”
“I HAVENT HAD ALCOHOL IN 2 YEARS”
and everyone just.. the meeting doesn’t even happen because everyone just needs to lie down.
“wait a minute… if you’ve been sober all this time then why do you.. you know.. why have you been acting so?? intoxicated? we were all so convinced you were always ALWAYS drunk because of how you act”
