also it's late so i'm allowed to do this

Late night destressing, plus a little bit of vent art.

Jumin is such a complex character. His personality is so much deeper than what it first seems, and he’s such an interesting person to doodle whenever I feel lost, confused, or basically unsure of myself. I can really relate to how he bottles everything up (and that’s bad yo, I know I’m a hypocrite for saying this, but please don’t bottle up your emotions, whether positive or not, bc jumin’s route wasn’t lying, it really does start killing you from inside). But I’m glad that Cheritz allowed for MC to show empathy and be compassionate, because I do think he deserves to have a happy ending. 

All of you do, okay?^^ You all deserve a happy ending, and if any one of you feels lost, or need someone to talk to, I’m here! I’m not just saying this for the heck of it, I’m willing to do whatever I can to make you believe in yourself again.

What are some things you like and dislike about Claire Danes's portrayal of Juliet?

Claire Danes is possibly my least favorite Juliet, I must say.

I do think her portrayal of the character is valid, but personally I find Shakespeare’s Juliet to be far more resolute and forceful, guided by her strong-mindedness and her unbounded desire. Her naiveté tinged with rebelliousness, she fearlessly furthers her own desire, no matter what social conventions she must break to do so. For me, a good Juliet should make be believe that the whole universe is not big enough for her, that she is too alive for life itself. I need her to burn and scream and laugh limitlessly.

Claire Danes’s Juliet, though, is rather silent, still, her shyness present all along. The quintessence of her portrayal seems to lie in her harmless innocence, her softness, her quality as ‘a snowy dove’. She is (literally, at the ball) an angel, the extremity of her passion hidden beneath her bashfulness and delicacy. She blushes continually, laughs silently, always speaks in a sweet, high-pitched voice, smiles nervously, etc. She seems to be dominated by insecurity, her character defined by her maiden qualities. Of course, these attributes befit her wonderfully at the beginning of the play, when she is still an obedient daughter and talks to Romeo in a formal and maidenly fashion. But I believe she gets rid of such restraints as the story advances.

Grantaire had been eagerly awaiting the ball ever since discovering that Enjolras had been persuaded into going. The very thought of him dancing and making polite small talk with those he despised so deeply due to their status and lifestyle was amusing enough to fill Grantaire yet again with impatience, even though it was now rapidly approaching. In fact, the only imperfect detail of the whole evening was that he could not be home to witness Enjolras in his suit before the ball (his reasons being that his own suit had moved into Courfeyrac’s wardrobe about a year ago and the arrangement was too convenient to ruin, and also he suspected that if he was at home to see Enjolras dressed up he highly doubted they would actually manage to leave, and it would be a terrible shame to waste the opportunity now that Enjolras had been persuaded to attend the ball). And so it came to be that an unbearably long time after arriving fashionably late himself Grantaire was drifting distractedly around the party, determined to at least see Enjolras arrive before allowing himself to get too caught up in the event.
