crossover: les mis

Seattle Pride was amazing this year! I carried the flag in the parade again and actually ran into quite a few followers who recognized me since I wore my jacket (y'all made me feel like a celebrity!)

I’m so happy to live in this city. Even during the darkest times we never stop expressing ourselves through art, marching and protesting, or building community. Happy pride, Seattle 🌈

Les Amis and co as things me or my friends have done

Jehan: wrote out a huge quote 6 times in different metallic pen colours so that they’d remember it and get better at writing cursive at the same time

Bahorel: someone made a siren noise in his ear so he instinctively elbowed them, turned out to be a 12 year old so they brought him lunch

Marius: walked past someone with freckles and dimples and cried bc “they looked like such a kind person”

Grantaire: keeps making self depreciating jokes and then doing finger guns

Joly: got sent to hospital after having three panic attacks and eventually passing out in the doctors bathroom and it turned out just to be a stomach bug

Musichetta: brings tea in every morning, its always in a different flask. How many flasks does she have.

Courfeyrac: climbed out of a window to get ice-cream from the freezer. Realised the door was unlocked that whole time.

Combeferre: does homework on the shed roof so they can look at the stars at the same time

Bossuet:trips over the second stair on the way to the library every time and laughs about it afterwards

Feuilly: taking English and maths exams two years early and has a part time job, still has time and energy for social life

Enjolras: got told “either throw that coffee away or burn your throat trying to drink it before the bell” chose the latter and couldn’t taste anything for the rest of the day

Les Misérables - Inspector Javert
⭐ “This man was composed of two very simple and two very good sentiments, comparatively; but he rendered them almost bad, by dint of exaggerating them—respect for authority, hatred of rebellion; and in his eyes, murder, robbery, all crimes, are only forms of rebellion.”

@thegoodlesmisurlsaretaken combeferre making fun pancakes for courfeyrac. he surprises courf with strawberry pancakes, pancakes infused with sprinkles, and the best™ nutella pancakes known to man. it’s a sunday ritual between the two of them. on another note, a saturday ritual is courfeyrac making up bacon for the two of them, because he’s weirdly good at it. if you need someone to make bacon, call courfeyrac.
