  • Ruthie: Talk to him. That's what friends do.
  • Kit: Nope, I'm gonna wait till I'm on my deathbed, get in the last word, and then die immediately.
  • Ruthie: That's your plan for dealing with this?
  • Kit: That's my plan for dealing with everything. I have 77 arguments I'm gonna win that way.
  • Ruthie: Seems like a bad plan.
  • Kit: Now I have 78.

my american girl fanfiction where lesbian journalist kit kittredge & her secret gf hollywood actress ruthie smithens get arrested for Communist sympathizing

@ movie studio execs this post is my formal pitch for a movie where cara delevingne plays kit kittredge trying to hack it as a journalist in new york city in the 1940s living with her artist girlfriend ruthie smithens

  • Addy: Kit deserves a special party this year.
  • Julie: If what it says in her diary is true, then I say she needs it. A LOT.
  • Melody: It's true.
  • Ruthie: Wait, you read her diary?
  • Melody: Yeah.
  • Julie: What I can stomach.
  • Addy: I just skim it to make sure she's not on drugs.
  • Ruthie: Wha... what does it say?
  • Addy: It says "I'm not on drugs".

i would like to live in the reality where kit kittredge and ruthie smithens fell in love and moved to paris and adopted three babies while kit became a pulitzer prize-winning journalist and ruthie became an academy award-winning actress slash anti-poverty activist but unfortunately i live in the reality where the ruthie doll is retired and they stopped selling kit’s baseball uniform and sailor pajamas in favour of selling a range of pink and floral-print dresses that she WOULD NEVER wear like KNOW THIS

Prompt: Cosette, fic or art, gen preferred, rated up to T. Specifically, convent shenanigans! We learn in the book that Petit-Picpus has some interesting going-ons. I’d love to see Cosette fitting in with her peers and taking all things in stride, before she was aware of or concerned with men who passed her garden or set their eyes on her in the Luxembourg. Convent OCs and the inclusion of Jean Valjean and Fauchelevent very much welcome, but I’d like the focus to be on Cosette first and foremost. Sneaking about the grounds with friends and leaving no stone or leaf unturned, asking the nuns blunt (though entirely innocent) questions, her study of music and needlework, the beautiful friends she later recalls in “The Rose Perceives…” in canon, etc! Cosette in the convent having fun in both learn and play, knowing that she is loved. Hoping for something lighthearted and sweet, with no archive warnings necessary and child-appropriate circumstances, since she was a child at this point in canon. I’d welcome either fic or art for this one!

My other piece for smithens for Les Jours D’été, a canon-era Les Mis exchange, which you can see at AO3. Thank you for asking for such a cute prompt, I loved drawing it. <3

(I also filled another one because I can never resist drawing Montparnasse.)

“You’re late.”

“I deeply apologize, monsieur. I would lay down my coat for you, but alas, I do not own one. Shall we go?”

One of my pieces for smithens for Les Jours D’été, a canon-era Les Mis exchange, which you can see at AO3. I couldn’t resist drawing Montparnasse but I also loved the other prompt, so I filled both. <3

In return I got Sharp Clothes and Sharper Claws, a really good nsfw Courfeyrac/Montparnasse by within_a_dream, thank you so much!!! <3333
