hot people in a rom com

Me, when I think of the people who don’t watch kdramas...

‘why are you sensitive to misinterpretations of these characters’ i dunno maybe because they often reflect dismissiveness of their canon cause i.e. ‘enjolras is Problematic for wanting revolution’ 'enjolras realizes Love is more important than his fight (not the point Hugo was making)’ 'grantaire was Right and it was futile (also not the point Hugo was making)’ 'courfeyrac is a vapid frat bro not a passionate informed revolutionary just how courfeyrac of the time was a naive schoolboy’ 'enjolras got them all killed’ 'the vast majority of fic about this highly political novel should be dedicated to stories about these characters living comfortable middle class rom coms’ 'i want to write about enjolras as a porn star because it’s Hot even though my source material goes in depth about the consequences of Fantine’s sexual exploitation and suffering as a fallen woman, who is Fantine anyway Enjolras definitely fits this plot better’

les mis is more complicated than a lot of fandoms are because it is so highly political AND historical, when people misinterpret les amis they frequently also misinterpret the revolution

there are plenty of opportunities to write fun completely OOC indulgent fic but when it’s the majority of fic for a fandom based on a book with historical context that is still relevant today, it bothers me when people take the rest of it and boil it all down to tropes a lot more than, say, self indulgent Supernatural fic or fic for Lord Of the Rings (I don’t give a shit in those cases)

the musical is to blame for a lot of the mis-characterization of the cause, but the chapters on our revolutionaries are few and far between and easy to read online, for free, without reading the rest of the book

what concerns me is not so much that people are doing this but that they seem to not even be aware they are doing this

this book has more to offer, these characters have more to offer

“It’s an eternal bracelet that will tie the fate of two people together forever. - If you wear this with your lover, even if by chance you part ways, you will go around and around, and in the end, you will meet each other again.” 

When people ask me, “Don’t you miss going out with friends?” My response...

I have my dramas, anime, kpop, the internet, and a craft room full of stuff. That’s all I need. 

When all I want to do is watch shows, but people keep interrupting...

I love how close the people are in this show. And Kang Soo’s smile? I love it.

When people start talking bad about  Asian dramas in front of someone new to dramaland...

Don’t listen to other people. Make your own choices and opinions.

When two people are arguing over something, but you just wanna see where it goes...
When I catch a rare Pokemon and it’s got a higher CP than other people’s...
