i didn't mean for these tags to go on so long

2 days until Luhan’s birthday and Lay finally mentions him. as a fan who appreciates and adores Layhan’s friendship, this means so much to me ㅠㅠ I’ve been waiting 5 months for one of them to confirm that they still keep in touch. I didn’t doubt it for a second but I just missed their friendship and needed to know. I’m just happy and emotional and hopefully one day we’ll be able to see them together again. 
brothers forever ♡  

Hello HQ fandom!! I’ve been noticing for a while that with the sudden growth of the fandom due to the anime, there seem to be several posts in the main tag that could make people a bit uncomfortable, so I’m going to step out there and try to address that!

I’m glad a lot like the anime so far and that’s really great, but please try not to post things comparing it to other sports anime? I mean, yeah, it’s kind of hard not to, but at least don’t treat it as a ‘temporary filler’ for another anime you’re waiting for. That’s a little insulting to the people who have been waiting a long time for it. It’d be a lot more enjoyable if you just appreciated it as it is! I’m not going to tell you to stop posting your opinions since it’s your business what you think about it and not mine, but the least you could do is avoid tagging it with the main tag so as not to clog it up with text posts, as most check it to see edits, gifs, meta and the like. :)

There’s nothing wrong with yaoi, or queer characters in anime and manga. In fact, we need more of it as it is, and there’s no escaping ships in fandoms. But ships and pairings are certainly not all Haikyuu!! is about. We’d appreciate it a lot if you refrained from posting things about it being 'another gay sports anime’ in the main tag! Haikyuu is a fantastic shounen manga (which you should definitely give a shot too!) and is looking to be just as great an anime, with interesting, well thought out characters, meaningful relationships, narration and development. The Haikyuu!! tag has come to mean a lot to some of us who’ve been in the fandom longer, and while that doesn’t mean in the least that that makes us better fans, it would be really great if people would refrain from posting things that could potentially make others uncomfortable. Thank you very much! 

4.10: The 5th of June 1832 (locations part 2)

[First part]

There are going to be way more parts for this than I anticipated…

OH WELL.

The Funeral Procession of General Lamarque

[A bigger version with the notes] & [A clean and unedited version]

Okay so there’s a ton of information here. First the boring part:

Light blue:

The places where Hugo mentions the government forces being situated at the start of the day. Note that

a) this probably isn’t all the government forces, obviously. Just the main placements. Hugo also mentions the soldiers and guards outside of the city that would be later be called for backup. Also there were a bunch of guys in the barracks. I marked some of the barracks that I happened to find on the map with blue dots but that’s not all of them by any means. There were barracks all over the city and that’s not even counting the guardhouses which I left out because it’d be too much work to mark them all. If you want me to do that I can, but some time later.

b) also a bunch of them were obviously following the funeral cortège.

c) some of the government forces joined the rebellion, particularly the guys at the Place de la Bastille I think? As well as many of the ones in the procession (including Charles Jeanne who was a national guard). Many of them actually weren’t fully armed, including Charles Jeanne and Alexandre Dumas (who was an artilleryman and participated in the cortège too) for example. Most national guards only had their sabres with them. Jeanne had to go back home to get his rifle later on.

But anyway, the places:

Place Louis XV (= Place Louis XVI = Place de la Concorde): four squadrons of carabineers
“Latin country” (99% sure this just means the Latin Quarter) and Jardin des Plantes: Municipal Guard
Halle-aux-Vins: a squadon of dragoons
Place de la Grève: half of the 12th Light Infantry
Place de la Bastille: the other half of the 12th Light Infantry
The Célestins: the 6th Dragoons
The courtyard of the Louvre: artillery

I can’t be bothered to cross check these with the other sources. You can check Blanc yourselves if you want to know. Gisquet basically just talks about the police and the municipal guards because they were under his command. The only relevant thing you get from Gisquet’s account is that the police knew that the revolutionaries were planning to divert the procession to the Panthéon and that’s why the area between the Bridge of Austerlitz and the Panthéon was so heavily guarded (and probably why the hearse was successfully recaptured by the municipal guards but I’m getting ahead of the story here). 

[x] Place Louis XVI (formerly Place Louis XV) in canon era (1829). Louis-Philippe renamed it Place de la Concorde. Here viewed from Pont de la Concorde (in 1829 Pont Louis XVI)

([Here’s another 1829 picture of the Place] but from a completely different angle, facing Palais Boubon. I won’t show it here because I’m trying to use pictures sparingly in this post. Instead have this next one:)  

[x] Same place, unclear time. The picture is from 1848 but it’s labeled Place Louis XVI which could imply that it’s supposed to depict it in the Restauration era. Anyway I wanted to have this one because it’s the only one I found that shows the start of Rue Royale properly without also showing either the Obelisk (which didn’t come until later) or the statue of Louis XV (which had already been removed) Anyway this is where the carabineers were stationed and also where there was a ton of people waiting for the procession to start. The procession itself doesn’t seem to have passed through here: instead it started in the middle of Rue Royale (the street that starts between the buildings in the center right of the picture) but a lot of the people joined in from here. Possibly also Les Amis.

I have pictures of the other locations of the troops but none of them are really that relevant to Les Mis characters in this chapter so I’m leaving them out for now. I only wanted to have Place de la Concorde because it’s relevant to the beginning of the procession.

Light Yellow:

The actual funeral procession/cortège. I’m not going to get too deep into the details of what happened because there are perfectly good sources describing it that have even been translated into English. So if you want to read more about the cortège (and while you’re at it, the insurrection too) @tenlittlebullets made a great post about them [here]. (I think the only major one that I know is missing is [Gisquet’s memoirs] and they’re only in French anyway.)

For this part of the events, I recommend [Alexandre Dumas’s memoirs]. For one thing, he was actually there. For another, it’s by far the most fun to read! :D Seriously, check it out if you haven’t. He starts talking about Lamarque at page 260 of the sixth volume and the actual funeral day account starts on page 266. (This post deals with the events up to when he gets bored of the speeches and goes grab lunch.)


So the processions’s intended route (stress on “intended”) was to leave the general’s home in Faubourg Saint-Honoré by Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré, follow the Grand Boulevards* past the Place de la Bastille and then to the Place Mazas (Place d’Austerlitz) by the Seine, at the entrance to the Pont d'Austerlitz, where it would stop for speeches and all that, and then finally it was supposed to leave Paris** to Mont-de-Marsan in Landes, where the General was originally from, for the interment.

* (these are the old boulevards of Paris that form a sort of a half circle around the Right Bank and btw if you hear someone, at least in this era, talk about “the boulevards” without specifying which boulevards they mean, it’s probably these boulevards.)

** (probably by the way of the Boulevard de l’Hôpital on the left bank? I couldn’t confirm this but I got the impression from Gisquet)

According to Dumas, the public was actually allowed to visit the General’s home to see his body early in the morning. Maybe some of Les Amis did this too?

I couldn’t find the General’s home address so the start of the procession is a bit vague there, hence the dotted line on Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré. But in any case it didn’t start properly until it got to Rue Royale and took its proper form and picked up most of the people. The time of departure from Rue Royale was around 11:30 am. It went past the Madeleine Church to Boulevard de la Madeleine and then Boulevard des Capucines.

[x] This is obviously not canon era (as you can brilliantly deduce from the fact that it’s a photograph) but I like this picture as an illustration of the location: the beginning of the boulevards. The Madeleine church is of course on the left. The procession approached it directly but then turned right here to continue on the boulevards. The first section is the Boulevard de la Madeleine followed by Boulevard des Capucines (and B. des Italiens in the distance).

At the level of Rue de la Paix (the first yellow dot on the map), around 12:15 am, some enthusiasts decided to divert the head of the cortège (mostly just the hearse, I think, and maybe some of the people coming right behind it) to Place Vendôme to make a little lap around the column. They had some friction with the guards stationed there but soon returned the hearse to the planned route without provoking anything more dramatic.

[x] Place Vendôme and the column. Not canon era but it’s a good picture, I think.

The next incident happened on the Boulevard des Italiens at the level of Rue de Choiseul (Blanc claims it was Rue Grammont but just ignore him and believe Dumas. I checked this!) In the corner house, Hôtel Boufflers (12 Rue de Choiseul), on the second floor (or third floor depending on how you count floors) there was a club called Cercle des Arts and some people were at the balcony, among them Duc de Fitz-James who kept his hat on when everybody else was baring their heads in honour of the dead. He got stones thrown at him for this and retreated inside.

The procession continued to the Boulevard Montmartre.

[x] Boulevard Montmartre in 1830. It’s possible that the trees, or at least some of them, had been cut down in the revolution later in 1830 so in 1832 they might be replaced by younger replanted trees. Maybe. (All I found was that “about half” of the trees on the grand boulevards were cut down.) This picture is facing west so the cortège would arrive here from the direction we’re looking at.

The rest under the cut:

anonymous asked:

can I please ask what your tag fan hats mean ?

Hi! Oh, I didn’t think people actually read my tags, lol.. But, of course you can ask me :)

Ok. So, this is a “fan hat” right?

Very chic, huh ;) So those are used to protect your eyes from the sun, and to create an airflow to cool your skin. Usually this is something you buy or make yourself. But, there’s a certain someone who really doesn’t need to wear a fan hat at all.. 

This guy:

He was blessed with eyelashes long like strands of licorice..

…fluttering..

..like feathers.. 


..dark.. 

..like black lace..

…thick… 

…like candle wicks.

Eyelashes that closes slowly like theatre curtains. 

Those are his fan hats. You see? 

But I can’t take any credit for the the expression! I read it in this wonderful fic written by the lovely Kris, (go read it if you haven´t already!) and I think it just describes his eyelashes so wonderfully. 

This tag is totally dead why it’s like the only person who still cares about the show anymore is Net

Okay I’m gonna bring life into this fandom again IF IT KILLS ME (or until everybody gets annoyed about my pointless posts whichever comes first but considering the type of show Hyperforce is death ain’t out of the question I mean really my tombstone is gonna have a picture of Gibson’s dumb little happyface at the end of Demon of the Deep)

Anywho wow this post got long but hey j button exists for a reason and also NOBODY IS IN THIS TAG WHYYYYYY

So HEY LOOK MY FAVORITE BACKGROUND CHARACTER

THIS IS NEKEETA SHE’S A CATGIRL WHICH ALREADY MAKES HER PERFECT OFF THE BAT CATGIRLS ARE ALWAYS PERFECT ALSO SHE’S TOO CUTE LOOK AT HER LITTLE BABY BLUES AND HER WIDDLE HANDS UGH TOO CUTE GUYS

For most of the episode she kinda fulfills the whole “sweet yamato nadeshiko girl from a small village who falls in love with the white savior hero (though I don’t ship them because Jinmay is best robogirlfriendo)” role

Like she defends them from the distrusting villagers because they saved her from the monsters and she assumes they’re heroes of prophecy or something

And when they’re all like “uh yeah we can’t help you we’re kinda in the middle of a huge war between good and evil” she says she understands and doesn’t blame them even though she’s definitely hurt

She even does the whole “quiet moment on the rooftop” thing

but then

BUT THEN

AND I DIDN’T NOTICE THIS UNTIL YEARS LATER

During the final battle scene they have plainclothes villagers who serve as distractions and set up traps from a distance

And villagers trained as warriors wearing ninja costumes and bringing the whup

And during the fight

huh who is this mysterious individual with the same eyestripes as Nekeeta’s brother Tiqudo who is also extremely mad when their village leader/father(maybe idk possibly just headcanon) is hurt

huh there they are again looking incredibly concerned when Chiro’s about to run the final charge against Big Daddy Bugman

WAIT

WHAT

SHE WAS FIGHTING ON THE FRONT LINES THE ENTIRE TIME

NEKEETA

THE SWEET LITTLE VILLAGE GIRL WHO LICKS FACES AND PRAYS FOR HER PEOPLE’S FUTURE AND AND IS GENERALLY AN INNOCENT LITTLE FLOWER

PERSONALLY MURDERED A BUNCH OF BUG MONSTERS

And that’s not even the first indication it turns out when Chiro first found her she was SEEKING OUT THE MONSTER NEST

ALONE

TO TRY AND STOP THEM HERSELF

AND WHEN THE DADDY BUG BACKSLAPS THE CHIEF SHE GETS SO FRICKIN MAD

AND WHEN THE HYPERFORCE GETS THRASED SHE AND HER BROTHER STAND THEIR GROUND AND RALLY THE VILLAGERS AND INTIMIDATE DADDY BUG SO BAD HE BASICALLY LEAVES SHAKING HIS FIRST AND PROMISING VENGEANCE

SHE’S SO CUTE

AND SO INNOCENT

BUT HAS A WARRIOR’S SPIRIT

SHE IS SILK HIDING STEEL AND THE BEST CHARACTER IN THIS SHOW WHO GOT CHEATED OUT OF FURTHER APPEARANCES

Also she and her brother are included in the final cameo avalanche of the final episode meaning she fought in the final war against Skeleton King SO IF THEY HAD GIVEN US A FIFTH SEASON WE PROBABLY WOULD HAVE SEEN HER FIGHT

I LIKE HER SO MUCH GUYS

I WANTED TO SEE HER FIGHT

WITH LIKE BATTLE FANS

AND KNIVES

I feature her in a lot of my fics because she was such a good character ugh we needed so much more of her

This is my first follow forever. I wanted to mark off the new year with something so here we go. (look at those mad photoshop skillz tho ^^^)

I’m sorry if I forget anyone :/

SO VEGASCON! WHAT AN AWESOME TIME. and i mean it!! you guys treated me so well. here’re a few highlights from my time!

  • ALL OF THE PEOPLE. ALL OF THEM. i’m going to be that person that doesn’t list all of the names but seriously it’s because there are too many. my brain does not have a high enough capacity to understand the sheer amount of stunning people i met over this weekend, and i thank all of you.
  • I SANG BALLROOM BLITZ AT KARAOKE and in turn completely demolished my voice (none of my coworkers recognized my voice on the phone and i can’t sing anymore hahaaaaaaaaaoop)
  • sitting next to west during misha’s panel was both a gift and a curse. vicki laughed at me, but dammit, he is a cute little bugger
  • mall gave one of my charms to misha after our op!! so during the con!! h-he had a little cas! in his back pocket! (i was too scared to do it myself because i am butt)
  • and a LOT of you actually did stop and talk to me when you recognized me. i can’t believe that i’m walking away with so few charms, the demand was surprising!!

that isn’t even the tip of the iceberg, but i figure i’ll tell you guys the rest in a livestream!

(some of the people you see in this photoset are intrudaimpalamallotovcocktailseeyouonthursday, and octoswan!)

closed starter for thewiccanmechanic

Bela walked fast and her heart was beating faster than usual when she glanced around. Things had gotten an unexpected turn when the cops showed up but so far she was safe. They probably weren’t after her and her client but she had to make sure that her client wasn’t going to betray her. She looked forward, noticing a man disappearing around the corner, so she changed her speed a bit faster.

It didn’t took long her to catch him and in a quick motion she hd pushed him against the wall, gently pressing her gun against his stomach. “Now you listen me,” the thief hissed, finally looking up to his face. But what she saw, made her stumble few steps backwards with a surprised and  scared look on her face. “A-Aiden?” she stuttered, lowering her gun and keeping her eyes on him.

ZODIAC SIGN: Aries | Taurus | Gemini | Cancer | Leo | Virgo | Libra | Scorpio | Sagittarius | Capricorn | Aquarius | Pisces

     > Capricorns apply their knowledge to practical matters, and strive to maintain stability and order. They are good organisers, and achieve their goals by purposeful, systematic means. They are intuitive, though they don’t share this trait freely. They do not deal well with opposition or criticism but a healthy Capricorn will often shrug off negative comments. They are patient and persevering - they know they can accomplish any task as long as they follow their plan. Capricorns have broad shoulders, and typically take on other’s problems. Ironically, they rarely share their own problems and tend to go through bouts of inner gloom after a spell of dwelling on these problems.
