i got sidetracked from working on birthday gifts and asks….

au where enjolras starts doing weirdly nice things for grantaire without losing his very enjolras way about it.

like. he shows up at R’s apartment with courf’s homemade food because R ‘needs to eat properly’ and walks him home after meetings because 'you’ll be mugged one of these days’ never mind that R boxes and enjolras is a twerp

and R can’t help but love enjolras a little bit more for it even though he knows he’s only doing it for The Cause

meanwhile, enjolras is going around all YES HELLO LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT MY BOYFRIEND

I was talking to @grangratree (who may be planning an 80s fic) and just imagine

80′s era Les Amis

  • Courf in neon workout clothes, intensely listening to Madonna
  • Hippie Jehan that walks around with flowers in his hair  (i know this is not rly 80s but still)
  • Jehan, Grantaire, JOLY, Bahorel and possibly Courf are stoners
  • Enj listening to everything from The Smiths to Adam and the Ants
  • It works for a cute aesthetic au, but also due to politics in the 80s (the cold war, the AIDS crisis etc) it can also be darker
  • HIV-positive R that doesn’t believe there’s a future, until he meets E
  • E personally planning to fight the entire government and stopping the AIDS crisis
  • feel free to add more

anonymous asked:

hey hey for the character/palette thing, i'd love to see eponine in #92 and cosette in #128, and if you'd like to i'd love to see them in 19th book era clothes or hair or w/e (if you want :P ) otherwise just whatever u wanna do!!

Again, anon, why not both? 
Thanks for asking (I kind of went overboard on the sadness train with both tbh)

anonymous asked:

is there a reason why you shorted Montparnasse to Parnasse and not Mont or Monty?

ummmmm yes actually :’)

firstly, short answer: I just prefer Parnasse as a nickname. Monty is too English for me haha.

secondly, and bear with me bc we’re getting deep/Extra Pretentious here… 
Parnasse is french for Parnassus, as in Mount Parnassus: home of the muses, which leant it’s name (initially ironically) to ‘Le Parnasse contemporain’ a collection of 19th century poetry that helped inspire the post-romanticism literary style Parnassianism.
Parnassians embraced the philosophy of ‘l'art pour l'art’ (art having value just for being art rather than needing to have a moral or symbolic meaning) and took a more objective and less sentimental approach to writing vs. Romanticism’s emotionalism. these poets were much more interested in beauty and perfectionism than social commentary. are you beginning to see where I’m coming from…
(also the journal included Baudelaire’s ‘Nouvelles Fleurs du mal’ and Baudelaire is so intrinsically tied up in my personal interpretation of Montparnasse that it’s actually kind of embarrassing.)
anyway, more eloquent and better informed people have written about this before and it’s 2:15 am and I’m tired but the long answer is:
because Poetry

When Musicals are actual persons and Les Mis needs help for his next revolution.

I really like the idea of Musichetta sitting around Joly’s apartment one day and realizing just How Deep She Is.

Like, she doesn’t even a word for what their relationship is because she’s kinda dating Joly and she’s kinda dating Bossuet but this was only ever supposed to be a casual, feel-good sort of thing but now she’s sitting here at two in the afternoon on a rainy Saturday in her sweats (and not even the sexy, low-hung ones – these are her ugly, soft-as-sin, holey sweats for god’s sake) and both of her boys are on the couch behind her and they’re watching really bad reality TV.

And she just sits there for a few minutes, leaning against Bossuet’s legs and trying to digest how stupidly in love they all are and how exactly did they miss that?

So during the next commercial break, as casually as she can, she’s like:

“So.  I’m dating Joly, right?”

And Joly is like “Uh, yes?  I’m pretty sure that’s what we’ve been doing.”

“And I’m dating Bossuet, right?”

And Bossuet is like “Last I checked, yup.”

“And you’re both kind of dating each other, right?”

And they’re like: “What? No, we’re not.”

And she just… looks at them.  Like gets onto her knees and turns around and Looks at them because Joly is curled up in Bossuet’s lap and Bossuet’s painting Joly’s toenails (and has been for the past half-an-hour – he keeps smudging them and needing to start over) and they’d been discussing who would make dinner before this and if they needed to pick up more milk and she just.

And they’re like, “What, no, Chetta, really, we’re just really really good friends!”

So she points out, “You sleep with each other basically any night one of you isn’t sleeping with me.”

But well of course they do, Bossuet doesn’t have a place to stay right now and it’s a big bed!

“Okay, yeah,” she says, “but you also sleep with each other.”

And they’re both pretty much like “Well yeah okay but have you seen him he’s really hot why wouldn’t I??

And then they all kinda freeze at that and stop to consider this. Because Bossuet’s hasn’t actually been looking for a new apartment lately, and he has reminders on his phone for when Joly needs to take his medication to help him remember, and yeah they sometimes just have prolonged make-out sessions on the couch but if they’re both dating the same girl and are really bored sometimes that’s basically allowed right?  And maybe they’d been considering getting a puppy together but how can you say no to puppies??  And yeah okay they’re probably dating and maybe their friends have been making jokes about that for a while except they probably weren’t actually really jokes now that they think about it, oops.

“’Cause you see I’m not actually even sure who I’m supposed to be here dating at the moment,” Chetta points out, because Joly had texted her but half the time Bossuet uses Joly’s phone because his never seems to have a charge, and the fact that she wasn’t sure who she was on a date with didn’t actually seem like a problem.  “So basically I kinda think if we’re all dating each other we might as well officially all date each other.”

And that’s how Joly, Bossuet, and Musichetta start dating, and how they confuse the fuck out of their friends the next day because, uh, no, you guys have all been together for months?? …Haven’t you…?

Inspired by previous examples of not-so-legal Animagi at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, the Ravenclaw Foursome of Grantaire, Joly, Jehan and Combeferre, decided at the end of second year to try their hand at becoming Animagi.

Nobody thought it weird that a Otter, a Duck, a Puffin and a Pine Marten were seen together around the Great Lake, especially as the Otter usually looked like they were reading a book.

Magi Wiki =D

During the Final Arc, Kougyoku confides in Aladdin about her misgivings on being the empress. When Aladdin questions why Kougyoku chooses to mention her insecurities to him but not to Alibaba, she replies that she doesn’t want to spoil her reputation in front of ‘esteemed friends’ like Alibaba but feels that Aladdin would be willing to listen to her. This causes Aladdin to ask her if she likes him better than Alibaba to which Kougyoku responds contemptuously with a hair flick and by sticking her tongue out at him, telling him not to flatter himself. It is thus implied that despite Kougyoku’s apparent dislike of Aladdin, he is one of the only people she feels comfortable talking to about her real feelings.

My edits are sooooooooooooooooo bad!

For a date Combeferre took Grantaire to the Cat Café in the Marais. He turned his back for one minute to look and something and when he turns around R has a cat in his lap, on his shoulder, and on his head and is sipping his cappuccino like it’s no big deal.

(Side note: Ferre definitely goes “Enjoying your CAT-uccino?” with the biggest shit-eating grin and R almost throws one of them at him.)
