Sometimes you catch glimpses of familiar faces

People who belong to an unknown Before
Steps that must have echoed each other
Shoulders you must have held

Smiles that you must have shared
Fingers that you must have intertwined
Eyes that must have met (even if just for a moment)

But your heart should not feel so drawn to a stranger
And that connection feels oddly, painfully nostalgic.

Sometimes you catch glimpses of familiar faces

and you remind yourself  

“it’s only in my head”

Happy –more than a month after– Barricade Day!

also known as: Reincarnation!AU Day

[inspirations: @batcii‘s inktober; @darthfar‘s barricade day project]

We all know that Enjolras was on the barricade to fight for Liberty

And we know Combeferre was on the barricade to fight for Equality

And we know Courfeyrac was on the barricade to fight for Brotherhood


But Bahorel was on the barricade to fight for the right to exist beyond ‘class’

But Feuilly was on the barricade to fight for children without anything else

But Joly was on the barricade to fight for those choosing between medicine and food

But Jehan was on the barricade to fight for the right to live fully

But Bosset was on the barricade to fight for freedom of the future

And Grantaire was on the barricade to fight for his friends, the goodness in life

it’s barricade day again and what a fine day to remember that jean valjean saved all of les amis and then adopted each and every one of them + eponine and gavroche and pulled javert out of the seine and took his hand to lead him to a life of ohsomany feels and cuddles and a family and happiness and love

yes happy barricade day mes amis
