Please please I want the citation in the book about his hair because I dont remember it aaaaaa (Sorry for bad english ??)
Hey! Sorry it took me a while to get back to you. It was a combination of “Hmm is there anything else you can add?” and “I’ll get back to this later!” LOL
Anyway, here are some excerpts that give the readers some information about Laurent’s hair:
Captive Prince, Chapter 10:
Laurent’s body was a series of graceful lines under the shirt’s soft folds. Damen’s eyes lifted to the white column of his throat, and above that the golden hair, parting around the shell cup of an unjewelled ear. The image was damascened, as beaten metal. He was reading.
Prince’s Gambit, Chapter 2:
In order to begin unlacing the garment, he had to lift his fingers and brush to one side the ends of the gilt hair, soft as fox fur. When he did so, Laurent tipped his head very slightly, offering better access.
Prince’s Gambit, Chapter 14:
Damen looked downwards and saw the way that the white fabric shifted slightly under his thumbs. Laurent’s shirt hung on his body, a containing layer. Then Damen’s eyes travelled up along the balanced nape, to a wick of golden hair tucked behind an ear.
Prince’s Gambit, Chapter 18:
Laurent looked like any young man who has been pressed against a battlement and kissed. The slight disturbance of the hair at Laurent’s nape was wonderful. His hand had lain there.
Kings Rising, Chapter 12:
Damen lifted his hand, slid his fingers into the short, soft hair at the back of Laurent’s neck, cupping his head. They had never been this close, not with the fact of who he was open between them.
There was only the feel of it, the slide of his chest against Laurent’s back, the dip of Laurent’s head, and the sweat-damp hair at the nape of Laurent’s neck.
Kings Rising, Chapter 14:
The light through the trees dappled Laurent’s hair, which was longer now than it had been in the palace, and showing signs of minor disarray.
The Summer Palace:
He remembered - the steam of those other baths, the moment he had caught Laurent’s wrist in his hand. This close, he could see the wet tops of Laurent’s shoulders. Above that, the tips of Laurent’s hair were wet too, from steam or from the splash from the pitcher.
The passage from The Summer Palace (TSP) clearly states that Laurent’s hair is slightly above shoulder length. Since TSP occurs near the end of this series’ timeline AND Chapter 14 of King’s Rising (KR) states that Laurent’s hair grows throughout the trilogy, I can make assumptions of the length of Laurent’s hair from earlier.
I believe that at the beginning of the trilogy, Laurent’s hair is at/around chin level. In Chapter 10 of Captive Prince (CP), Laurent’s hair is described to be tucked behind his ear. Hair that is chin level (speaking from personal experience because mine is that short) is easily able to be tucked behind the ear. Any shorter than chin length is hard to brush behind the ear.
Laurent’s hair is constantly described as at the nape, aka the back of the neck. Since we know that Laurent’s hair is at chin level in CP and is shoulder length in TSP, I can conclude that his hair grows throughout Prince’s Gambit (PG) and KR.
TL;DR - Laurent’s hair begins at chin level, gradually grows throughout the trilogy, and is now at shoulder level. He has “medium” length hair.
“It’s a testament to Rickman’s talent as an actor that we are able to see the multiple layers of Snape’s character with simply the flash of his eyes. So much emotion and pain radiate from their depths thus making Snape’s character suddenly very real but also human. To be able to convey so much without dialogue further emphasizes the genius of Rickman’s acting. Very few can claim to possess that same kind of power on the silver screen.”
also i love how throughout the entire episode every time michonne mentions going home rick like nearly begs michonne to just stay out a little longer, just a couple more days and michonne seems slightly confused on why he seems to be dragging his feet so much on getting back to alexandria.
but it’s because rick has already thought about and processed the reality of what they’re going to do, and the possibility and implications that come with it. he knows that people are going to die, that he could die or he could lose michonne and he’s already forced himself to accept this because he knows that what they’re doing is bigger than them, and they have to keep going and see it through.
and he knows that they have the people now, and all they need to really start this is the guns. and once they have the guns, he knows that this trip is it. that as soon as they drive through the gates of alexandria, this little bubble of peace and happiness and laughter bursts and they have to go forward with this plan which could easily result in both of their deaths, so he’s trying to hold onto it, to her, for just a little longer, for as long as he possibly can.
but michonne hasn’t processed this and doesn’t even consciously realize it until she thinks rick is dead. and when rick talks to her in the van, the weight of it finally hits her. that this is it before they put everything they have and everything they are on the line.
and i think rick, the whole time, realizes that she hasn’t thought of this yet, but he doesn’t tell her because he just wants he to be able to be happy without exception for just a little longer.
andy keeps calling it their honeymoon, but i think it’s even more than that in a way. this is the first significant amount of time they’ve been alone together since they’ve been together (maybe the first time in the entire series????? idk don’t quote me on that). this is their time to be them and be happy with each other and enjoy each other and love each other. it’s the first time, and it may be the only time.
and they can’t change that. it has to be that way.
but it’s so amazing and they’re so happy and in love and rick’s so happy and in love, and he doesn’t want it to end. he’s trying to hold onto it for as long as possible.
i downloaded Sam Winchester saying,
“No, we have guns and we’ll find you ” and then put it as my alarm in the morning. so im woken up every morning by a deep male voice threatening me and it’s honestly alarming and refreshing at the same time
‘Harry must have had more hair cuts than the rest of his class put together, but it made no difference, his hair simply grew that way– all over the place.’
Lily Luna: /Merlin…/
Mirror: you’re fighting a losing battle there, dear.
Lily Luna: /I give up/
Ginny: Lily love, put your glasses on! you’ll hurt your eyes.
Lily Luna: /I hate my life/
Harry: *Draco voice* …Potter
((OOC: I was talking to a friend about the fact we know very little about Lily Luna from the cursed child and somehow this happened… ahfkjebshjf IDK I just love the idea that despite the red hair Lily is actually the most like Harry))
because love is in the air
and i am holding my breath
the world is painted
with lipstick kiss stains
with cheap wine
everything becomes heart shaped
even the heads atop of the bodies roaming
this romanticized vie en rose
because my colors don’t match up with the ones around me
and i am
because i don’t define
as having sex
but instead making someone feel my love for them
i can love
i am capable of loving
the man who defined the word “érōs”
does not talk of physical attraction as a necessary part of love
i can love
who coined the term “philía”
loved his brothers
it isn’t that hard of a concept to grasp
but because i am not grasping someone else
you think there is something wrong with me
but i am fine
i am fine
i am fine
is just another day
i don’t need anyone’s approval
because who i am
and the way i love
i felt broken
i felt isolated
then i felt angry
i’m feeling pretty ace.
for the aromantics and asexuals on valentine’s day ♡
