this is kinda shitty but i love this quote

BS:  I think Max ends up with Liesel. I don’t think it happens right away, but as they grow up, I think he’s the only person that she’s got and she’s the only person that he’s got. Having gone through what the two of them went through, there’s a bond that’s unparalleled. It would be futile to look to establish something beyond t h a t between two human beings.

for dills

I just finished reading “Cosette” The Sequel to Les Miserables” by Laura Kalpakian. For those who do not know, this book is basically a 650-page (kinda shitty) fanfic that somehow was published as a real, purchasable book sometime in the 1990′s. Here are some of my favorite moments:

  • A quote from Javert: “Republican scum like you can’t overthrow the king of France. One day more and you’ll piss blood. I’ll meet you in hell.”
  • A quote from Valjean: “She is seventeen, too young to be in love. She is a child. This Marius, he is nothing to her. She wanted a puppy once and I said no and she got over it.”
  • Enjolras scrambles to the top of the barricade and just….screams SHIT!
  • For some reason in the whole barricade part in the beginning Combeferre is the ami that gets the most attention
  • The only amis that are mentioned are: Combeferre, Enjolras, Feuilly, and Courfeyrac. The only ami that gets mentioned beyond the 1832 barricade section is Feuilly because of the whole “vivent les peuples!” thing written on the wall of the Musain. Which, btw, the author always writes as “vive les peuples!”
  • Actually the author made up some OCs in the barricade section so there could be some barricade survivors for Marius and Cosette to interact with later in the book
  • “You will hang by your cock in hell.”
  • For some reason whenever Jean Valjean is mentioned in the first portion of the book, he is described as having large, powerful hands
  • Cosette had no sex education and so on her wedding night she asked Marius to teach her. And he just gestures to her boobs and says “this is a nipple.” It is the only thing he vocally says to her and then he is kissing her boobs and they go at it. I kid you not this is the big amazing wedding sex scene and the most notable line is “this is a nipple”
  • Remember the whole absolutely no sex education thing? Well they somehow have amazing sex all night long regardless
  • Azelma is the main antagonist in the book. Also she is ALWAYS referred to as Zelma. I don’t know where the A went. It’s gone forever I guess.
  • A quote from Thenardier: “I am one of those holy men. I can walk in shit, sit in shit, sleep in shit, eat shit, drink shit, and still my turds come out in perfect golden bricks.”
  • Marius regularly goes to prison like it’s a casual thing that happens often which is an inconvenience but you know what are ya gonna do
  • Marius and Cosette raise the biggest asshole of a son there is literally nothing redeeming about him
  • Azelma ‘Zelma’ Thenardier literally fucked Louis-Napoleon and had a child with him.
  • She named the child Eponine.
  • Azelma feels like she needs to take revenge against Cosette for the whole Marius thing and she basically uses her daughter Eponine II to fulfill that, as if ensuring Eponine II is successful will make ghost Eponine happy
  • Speaking of Eponine II there is an entire subplot where Azelma manages to force the son of Cosette and Marius to marry Eponine II……because she felt that her sister Eponine should have married Marius……..so like, by marrying her daughter Eponine to a Pontmercy she’s fulfilling some kind of lost destiny shit. And also taking revenge against Cosette. Azelma is really freaky in this okay
  • Cosette disguises herself as an old beggar due to a mixture of political and economic reasons and calls herself “the plumed lark” when she is in her disguise. Weirdest superhero ever amiright
  • Marius sneaks out of prison dressed up as the plumed lark
  • THERE IS A SEX SCENE THAT TAKES PLACE WITH ONE PERSON HIDDEN UNDERNEATH A HOOP SKIRT

i am not fucking with you. “this is a nipple” is probably the most iconic part of the book

I am NOT as fine as I seem

You told me that I’m the only person that you’re ever selfless for and you make my heart grow an inch. You’re the only person that knows when to do that, the only one that cuts it down when it grows a little too big and feeds it light when it’s full of something cold. You pull me out of that hazy dark with laughter I can’t resist. You’re warm tea when it’s raining and smiles when things are burning. You’re blanket capes and late night drives, old songs and midnight giggles.
It’s ok that you’re only selfless sometimes because when it comes to you I’m selfish and if you have to be a best friend to someone, I’m so glad that it gets to be me.

Shadowhunters (1x04, 1x13) + Book Quotes (City of Glass)
“I didn’t call you because I’m tired of you only wanting me around when you need something. I’m tired of watching you be in love with someone else - someone, incidentally, who will never love you back. Not the way I do.”

Looks kinda’ shitty, but I’ve been wanting to do one of these for a while and this was floating around my head.

Super frustrated with work (made an error in coding of a theme I’m working on for y'all and I can’t for the life of me find it. Feeling like knocking my head against a concrete wall.) Watched the Malec kiss a few 100 more times, made this, now back to work.

EDIT: Wanted to change the colour of Magnus’ shirt so it looked more like these gifs go together. After all that work, I still don’t think it’s the best match, but it’ll do.

so i’ve decided to turn one of the walls in my room to a quote wall and up till now two quotes from inkskinned’s poems have made it there and i’m probably gonna fill it all up with her quotes because they’re so beautiful and basically, yeah. ignore the shitty handwriting please, i know it sucks. (x) (i can’t find the link to the other poem, sorry) 

PROMISES.
I swear to belong to you forever, 
and you smile and nod.
I promise you the galaxy in a bottle,
and you praise me with empty words.

LOYALTY.
The word is branded into my soul:
You demand it from me, 
and willingly I give it.
I am yours; do with me as you please. 

LOVE.
You whisper to me in the dead of night, and I smile.
You hold me close, and I melt: 
You are my everything.
You say you love me.

SACRIFICE.
You demand my everything: 
my heart, soul, body, and mind, 
and I offer it to you on a silver plate.
Coals burn my tongue, and I do not cry out.

DELUSIONS.
In a dream, you love me: In a dream, you hold me.
I tell myself it is reality, and for a while, I believe it.
For a while, I am happy with this.
Then morning comes, and I awaken.

REVELATIONS. 
I am nothing to you, and yet I still love you.
You are my everything, but to you 
I mean nothing.
The reality stings, but I ignore it.

FREEDOM.
A strange thought, to be sure: I was yours for so long.
Now I am flapping my wings, and you are not here.
You no longer hold me down.
I am light as a feather, and I am afraid I will float far away.

—  I belonged to you for so long, but were you ever mine? (CNS)
