some of this is a joke

guess what death scene in les mis i finally got to?
  • me, talking to shell collector: guess what emotional reaction i had
  • would you believe...laughter? because that's what it was
  • me: i mean. several hours later i'm like. oh no. oh no, that was indeed terribly sad and poignant. but in the moment it was...like really good probably semi-intentional dark comedy/probably unintentional narm to me, for a variety of reasons
  • shell: oh gosh, tell me more
  • me: okay so
  • me: - the mental image of grantaire passed out across a table IN THE EXACT SAME POSITION for OVER A DAY, completely unscathed despite all odds & his own heavily implied desire to die, is...just. come on! that's pretty funny! cruelly-ironic funny, but funny. and i think you're supposed to find it at least a little comedic, given the way hugo describes him here (not reacting except occasionally to snore in response to cannonfire, etc.) AND SO THEN he ends up, still in the same position, passed out across a table, so surrounded by corpses that he just looks like one of them, which is awful, BUT the mental image of this half-dead looking hungover man suddenly LURCHING UP OUT OF A PILE OF DEAD BODIES LIKE A ZOMBIE to declare his loyalty to the revolutionary cause and loudly ask to be murdered in almost the manner of someone trying to get in on a sweet, sweet 2-for-1 coupon deal at the local deli less than five minutes before it closes
  • is. funny. to me at least! AND
  • me: having checked The Internet, i suspect that what is meant to be happening next is that enjolras and grantaire die HOLDING hands. like, hands cupped or fingers laced, whichever-- that is actually a touching and kinda romantic gesture of reconciliation and comfort in the face of death and i do not think it's especially funny, i think it is...something that speaks to my sentimental streak more than i care to admit. BUT THE TRANSLATION OF LES MIS THAT I HAPPEN TO HAVE provided me with a rather different mental image
  • shell: it's definitely supposed to be holding hands!
  • me: because what it says is "[Enjolras] took [Grantaire's] hand and shook it". which makes me imagine, of course, just this really, REALLY awkward formal "thank you for doing business with me today, sir" hand-grasp-quick-arm-pump. maybe with some hesitation beforehand (heh) where enjolras is like...kind of going in for a hand-hold, and grantaire doesn't believe he's going in for a hand-hold and doesn't wanna make it too weird so he's kind of going for a high-five, and enjolras is like "we're about to DIE, is this asshole seriously trying to high-five me NOW?" and it just ends up turning into one of those stiff compromise-between-gestures handshakes that nobody wants

an obvious joke made by everyone on the face of the planet whos heard that song but ive been listening to christmas mixes so gkhkg

Chapter Summary:

“But—but…” Victor’s eyes light up as he remembers something. “But you signed a contract!” He puffs out his chest, vindicated that all those hours spent in a glitterless lawyer’s office negotiating work contracts have paid off. Good idea, Past Victor. Thanks, me, I know.

But while Victor expects Emil to instantaneously crumple into a ball of deference and defeat, Emil merely smiles. “None of the crew is exclusive, Victor darling.”

Fuck you, Past Victor, for insisting on no exclusivity as a universal rule.

Emil continues, rudely oblivious to Victor’s internal monologue, “Wasn’t it you yourself who said that burlesque is a free-spirited industry? We must fight to shed the shackles of capitalist dogma and embrace the collective in every possible way.”

Victor’s never wanted to punch a communist before, but suddenly the propaganda of his adopted US of A surges through him. As soon as he gets home, Victor’s going to pour over that fine print with his hot pink magnifying glass. “Are you serious— ”

Emil’s already walking away. “We’ll catch up later! You can tell me what you think!”

remember when kaz brekker told inej ghafa he refused to be the one to mark her body after everything she had been through?? because i sure do. the tattoo was mandatory for everyone in the dregs except her bc self-proclaimed monster kaz brekker had the decency to respect her past trauma & he didnt want her to feel like anyone owned her. and the first thing he did after purchasing her indenture was get her proper clothes?? and a knife??? lbr when will your fave ever

yes im posting about this again

- allura finally decides to just “ah, quiznak” and sits keith down to brush his hair and the mice braid it and put little flowers in it (“you’re a fairy prince now, keith!”) and she listens to him ramble on about lance this and lance that and allura i am. so gay.

- he does the same for her and tries to braid her (freakishly long holy shit) hair,, of course with the mice’s help and she just goes on and on about shay (“she’s so strong but gentle i would trust the mice with her”)

- “do you need help with picking out a dress?” “from you? oh honey no”

- TRAINING TOGETHER

- she completely wipes the floor with him

- “allura please i need a breather” “WOULD ZARKON GIVE YOU A BREATHER???!!?”

- “hey, the stars sure are beautiful tonight”

“yes, indeed”

“you know who else is beautiful?”

“shay” “lance”

- “keith i want to knock him all the way to the next deca-phoeb too but this is a diplomatic meeting so please put your sword away”

- “allura”

“hm?”

“im feeling extra gay right now”

“oh same”

i have so many feelings about these gayliens
