just saying it as i see it

anonymous asked:


(Okay let me first say AUs in which any of les amis are royalty weird me out since, yknow, monarchy, so let’s assume Enjolras happened to be born the crown prince of Camelot and absolutely hates it and is determined to dissolve the whole notion of a kingdom when he’s supposed to ascend to the throne or something like that)


We all know how the story goes: everyone hates the current king for his ban on magic throughout Camelot. Enter Grantaire, a powerful (though he doesn’t realize it) wizard new to the kingdom who hates the king for the exact same reason, and his son by extension. 

A vengeful witch tries to kill Enjolras. Grantaire saves his life, though he doesn’t understand why at the time. The king makes Grantaire Enjolras’ manservant as a ‘reward’.

They can’t stand each other at first. Grantaire’s never been that well-off, and he’s uncomfortable in a ridiculously lavish place like the castle. He throws snark at Enjolras every time he’s forced to dress him or pull his bath water or whatever. Enjolras, for his part, hates Grantaire’s attitude and snaps back every time he prods, saying things like ‘the size of my bed/stable/army is beyond my control’.

The Great Dragon tells him it’s his destiny to protect Enjolras and stay by his side. ‘Two sides of the same coin’, the Dragon calls them. Grantaire wants to serve Enjolras even less, after that.

Then he starts to notice things. The sparseness of Enjolras’ chambers compared to the other rooms in the castle. Enjolras paying the merchants for far more than their goods cost, then distributing it to the children of the town. His camaraderie with many of Camelot’s knights, yet his disdain towards the ones who talk down on the poor. Arguments that happen between Enjolras and his father behind closed doors while Grantaire stands outside (”No one person should be allowed to decide who lives or dies!” “It’s the way we’ve lived for centuries.” “Then the way we live must be changed. When I become king…”).

Grantaire sees a glimmer of hope through Enjolras. Maybe, just maybe, he’s someone who could change Camelot for the better.

Grantaire stops complaining about having to prepare Enjolras’ breakfast or polish his armour, even after Enjolras says he doesn’t have to. Grantaire tells himself he’s only doing it because it takes no effort with his magic. 

If it were up to Enjolras, he wouldn’t have a manservant, but he can’t bring himself to tell Grantaire to leave. He doesn’t understand why–Grantaire is loud, insufferable, pessimistic, and often shows up late in the morning reeking of the town’s tavern. 

But sometimes Enjolras catches a glimmer in Grantaire’s eyes. When he’s reading, or caring for Enjolras’ horse, or when he’s laughing with the knights on the training grounds. The grass seems to stand up taller where Grantaire walks through it. Enjolras knows that’s a ridiculous notion. 

One day, Camelot is swept up in a mysterious drought that left it with barely any water and food (hint: it was magic). Enjolras steals the food that the king has been hoarding away in the castle stores and distributes it to the people. 

It’s the same day Grantaire realizes he now has two secrets to keep: that he’s a sorcerer, and that he loves Enjolras.

Another day, a great beast which seems impervious to Enjolras and his knights’ attacks (hint: it was magical) knocks Enjolras unconscious on his back. When he comes to, it’s only to see an armourless, weaponless Grantaire standing alone in front of the slain beast. Grantaire’s eyes are golden when he turns around and fixes them on Enjolras. 

It’s strange. He could swear on the life of every citizen in Camelot that Grantaire’s eyes are a deep brown.

“Do you permit it?” Grantaire keeps asking Enjolras. He asks when he wants to leave the castle, or assist one of the knights, or borrow a book. Enjolras tells him he doesn’t need to ask for permission to do anything. Grantaire is his own person, after all. Not that Enjolras could refuse him anyway. Still, Grantaire keeps asking. 

“Do you permit it?” he asks, with a roll of his eyes, when Enjolras asks where he’s going. He’s only going back to his own chambers. Enjolras reddens. 

“Do you permit it?” he asks, shyly, holding a tunic that Enjolras has gifted him for his birthday (which Enjolras went through a lot of trouble to discover). 

“Do you permit it?” he asks, with thinly veiled panic behind his eyes as he holds a letter from his mother with shaking hands. He needs to return to his hometown for a while. Enjolras never wants to see that look on him again.

“Do you permit it?” he asks one day, when he stands beside Enjolras as a dozen archers aim their arrows at him. Enjolras takes his hand and smiles. He wishes they had more time together.

They aren’t shot. As if propelled by an invisible force, all the archers are knocked off their feet and their bows broken. Grantaire holds his free hand towards them. His eyes are golden. It’s all the confession Enjolras needs.

“Do you permit it?” he asks, wanting permission to leave Enjolras’ service. They avoided each other for a week after the incident. Grantaire’s use of magic broke Camelot’s highest law, which Enjolras hates. He doesn’t understand why Grantaire wants to leave. The thought makes his heart clench. 

Enjolras permits it, on the condition that Grantaire stay by his side. It’s not an order, but a plea. No one should be forced to live in the servitude of another, after all, least of all someone like Grantaire.

Grantaire wants the reason for his condition. Enjolras gives it to him in a rush of breath. Grantaire’s eyes go wide.

“Do you permit it?” Grantaire asks, laying a tentative hand on Enjolras’ cheek. 

“Yes,” Enjolras says. Grantaire’s eyes close. Maybe they’re golden. Somehow, when Grantaire’s lips touch his, he can’t bring himself to care.

Grantaire never asks for permission again.


hey I feel like drawing UTAUs, reply/reblog this post with a pic of your UTAU (THEY MUST HAVE A FINISHED VOICEBANK so link that too, just to make sure it’s an actual utau and not a random OC you submitted to et free art outta me lol)

Ill pic one (or more if I feel like it) and draw them. Idk if it will be a simple drawing or a LypSync model, depends of how much i get carried on or not XD

anythingtomakeyoustay replied to your post: the way i write involves surprisingly more math…

how…… does it involve math now i’m curious

UH it’s mostly to do with what i consider to be…sentence weight and how i arrange dialogue and building a plot and stuff. also ‘that word has been used too many times’.

basically there’s a lot of addition and subtraction involved in the way i think about writing stuff (and it only gets worse if i’m writing smut l m a o). I DON’T LITERALLY MEAN THAT EVERYTHING IS ASSIGNED A NUMBER OR ANYTHING it’s more just the way i visualise a story.

which, interestingly, is a part of why i struggle so much with background stuff, because i’m picturing words moving around a page rather than people saying stuff to each other in a location. so when i’m adding in descriptions and background stuff it’s a lot of 'x% of this scene can be devoted to background stuff and then we need a solid chunk of dialogue or else it’s going to look off balance’. i don’t…have an image bank at all of what i want things to look like LMAO i have a word bank of descriptions that i pull out like DOES THIS FIT HERE?????

i have been taking a lot of photos of nz landscapes for this reason tbh, that way i can build up descriptions to plop into sleeping gayly, i find it very difficult to come up with what things look like on my own otherwise

Yeah, i see, it's like i said, you're ignorant. You have a superficial reading of things. You think Macron is better than Le Pen. There's no "better". None of this even counts as a true election because the entire process is rigged, and Le Pen is not going to pass anyways, she's only there for him to get elected.


okay anon

let’s just say it once again for the people in the back






it’s in the fucking labels. also, if M is pro-EU and LP is anti-EU they’re already not the fucking same thing. and rotfl yeah sure in the years of trump getting supported by putin and of lepen being pals with putin she’s being put there in order to make him win anon fuck’s sake rorschach from watchmen was less of a conspiracy theorist than you are, pls stop drinking that kool-aid and realize that fascists are fascists and therefore not the same thing as their political opponents always e cordialmente aprite un cazzo di libro anvedi che devo sentirme dì ste cose fortuna che è il 24 aprile e non il 25, ciaone

This is a stupid cheesy post but I was just reading comments on the YouTube channel and stuff and I wanna say
I know I’ve lost some followers recently due to staff deleting inactive blogs and stuff, also switching gears and getting more into kpop and posting less cosplay and anime lately

But to the followers who have stuck around, and even those who have left, thank you. I truly appreciate the support and stuff you give
And even though I may feel really insignificant and dumb most the time, whenever I see kind hearted or heartfelt responses or comments, it means the world to me
I’ve been having an extremely hard time lately, but your support helps make it easier.
I love you guys 💕 thank you so much for everything

Hi! i was just thinking what if Joey Drew is actually the demonic Bendy that had been chasing Henry and the real Bendy is just hiding or being held captive somewhere? Maybe Joey is over obsessed like Sammy Laurence was! :/

I don’t think there’s a maybe about Joey being obsessed. XD;

Anyways, I’m not really sure what to say about this. The more I see of the game, the more things I start to question. Not gonna lie, I’ll be kinda disappointed if it turns out tall Bendy is just old man Drew in an ink costume, but I don’t think it would be enough to ruin the game for me. 

Still, even if it turns out there’s two Bendys, I’m still not convinced Bendy is any bit innocent in this merry-go-round of red tape.

anonymous asked:

uhm I'm probably the only one thinking this but for some reasons machida has always reminded me of prince and vice versa. Idk how to describe it but there's just something in their presence and mannerism that's really similar to each other's :P I'm curious if you, the machida guru, ever see the resemblance? Or is it only me who's weird for thinking so? :P

Actually a lot of people have noticed the resemblance, including Japanese fans. A few years ago, one Japanese fan tweeted side by side pictures of Prince and Machida and pointed out the similarities and it got a lot of retweets. Everyone was saying “Machida is the Japanese Prince”. I’ve been secretly waiting for him to skate to a Prince program (like “When Doves Cry”) because I know he’d KILL it. So when I heard Yuzu was doing a Prince program I was like what kind of sorcery?? Anyway I think if someone were to do a video of Machida’s skating set to Prince music, it’d still look magnificent. 

Probably an unpopular opinion

I really like Simon’s new video when he came on to tumblr. I honestly don’t mind that he showed the ‘weird’ stuff. Just because he didn’t show any of the ‘normal’ stuff on the video doesn’t mean he didn’t see it. But even if he did see the stories people write about him who’s to say he didn’t find them weird because he is coming on to a site he doesn’t really know and people are writing about him in situations he might not like. He probably would have said the writers are talented because you guys are and it’s the same as the guys that draw fan art. Also people always find something to complain about. You complain that he doesn’t do something and then he does that thing and you still complain 🙄


just imagine…
the moment Lance learns how to unlock his bayard  :’)

slightly older Lance with different guns like, Pistols? Long Sniper rifle? pow pow 
Lance would ACE bc he is a fantastic sharpshooter.


Rejoice! ‘Tis the Loki of Spring here to bless you with his bushy beard and smol size!


It’ll all work out in the end, I won’t leave your side


Day 6: Protect!!
He doesn’t like being protected….

Kiribaku week is almost over D: What are we gonna do with our lives?!?!!



Am I the only one that doesn’t care at all that Mon El said that he loved Kara before Sanvers have said it? Like the relationship between Kara and Mon El is messy and lacks development, so I’m not surprised that he said that he loved her so quickly. In all honesty he may not even truly love her, she’s just the first person he’s truly been attached to and not a hook up, which he was doing on Daxam. 

BUT Sanvers has been developed and I’m just waiting for that special moment that they actually say it. Not some type of “I’m saying this cause I don’t want to lose you bullshit,” but they say it cause it’s true. Cause they truly can’t live without one another and love each other, ride or die. When they do say it, it will be impactful and not easily forgotten like Mon El’s confession.

Sorry I stumbled on a gif set the other day and couldn’t get this out of my head.

THEY BOTH DO IT. Who taught these boys this move? Do you think it was Peggy?

Peggy (1940s): If I tell them falling over is a Good Fighting Tactic™ do you think they’ll believe me?

Peggy (2010s): Huh.
