this love is o u r s


“It’s the type of performance that drives one to incessantly wonder, ‘What is she thinking?’ But this is uncertainty shrouded in personal mystery, not vagueness. And like the headiest and most involving mysteries, Keough refuses to settle for any quick and tidy resolutions, luring us in without ever emerging too far from her own protective shell. In this instance, answers hardly matter. Her suspense is enthralling enough.”

Here’s why Riley Keough’s breakout performance on The Girlfriend Experience deserves Emmy consideration, by Matthew Eng

LES MIS MODERN AU — broship aesthetics: jehan & enjolras

soft voices and grave expressions, silent tears, blowing dandelions, flowing words and flights of enthusiasm, sitting in windowsills, messy buns, keeping each other company while getting on with work, latin quotes, loose papers in piles, looking out across vast views, noticing what’s neglected, the wind in your hair, constant conversations about the state of the world, burning anger and gentle hearts. (requested by anonymous)

Biggest pet peeve forever is when people ignore Joly and Bousset as Grantaire’s best bros in favor of more popular amis(see: Jehan).

Ofc Grantaire is friends with Jehan as well, but for the love of God stop pushing Bousset and Joly aside those tree are the closest friens trio you will see in Les Mis.
