this just really needed to be made

A few weeks ago me and my boyfriend (only been together a few weeks and hadn't had sex before) were hanging out. We went to shoot some pool. Well I was getting really curious about his dick game and he could tell. He made a bet with me that if I beat him at pool I could have whatever I wanted. Let's just say 30 min later we were dropping pool sticks on the floor, running to the jeep, and fucking in the back. Three times back to back. 😏 PS, no need to be curious anymore IT WAS AMAZING. 😉

youve probs answered this already before but what got u started making music??

if the question is what made me decide that i wanted to produce, the answer is this, when I was 13 years old:

if the question is how did i actually begin producing;

when i was maybe 14 or 15 i downloaded ModPlug Tracker and gave up pretty quickly because that shit is like trying to make music in microsoft excel and it was all too left brained for me. I got really discouraged and didn’t try again until i was 19 years old, when my friend/roommate at the time gave me his copy of FL Studio 10. I fell in love with it really quickly because even though I always loved music a lot, my developmental fine motor skill problems always made learning physical instruments really hard for me, but with FL Studio i didn’t need to worry about that, so all that pent up musical energy from throughout the years just poured out of me and hasn’t stopped pouring out of me yet

Heeey,, I just read ur tags in the narrative of the Holocaust, and would you like 👀 mind sharing ur paper on Palestine-Israel conflict when ur done? Or ur resources? Because school has made that theme super confusing and I get it but I know they are not telling ur the whole thing an I Want to Know. It's amazing ur doing that

here’s a really good website 

and here’s an even more thorough writing on the origin of it, by Jews For Justice in the Middle East

Zionism and the Holocaust

thanks!! ppl rlly need to be educated on these topics…i would show u my papers on it too but they’re sort of divided on the topic since i also had to do analysis’ on a song+documentary ab the issue. those links have more references and citations too, so check those out as well if you’d like

“so what?”
“will you talk to me?”
“I don’t think so”
“but why not?”
“I have other things to worry about”
“what do you have to worry about? I’m the one talking, you just have to listen”
“I’m going to bed. good night”
“good bye”

I needed to end a friendship that was messy in itself. we sexted, made out, fooled around, and called it friends with benefits, despite the fact that we didn’t see each other often enough to really call it that. one night I texted him saying, “we’re really not good at fwb😂,” trying to set a somewhat friendly tone. eventually, that lead to a more serious conversation that was really the beginning of the end of our friendship. in order to end it entirely, I tried to convince him to talk to me in person, but he refused. it was then that I sent him a long paragraph, told him that what we had was toxic, and finally let go of the boy I’d tried to hold onto for so long.

anonymous asked:

Where did you get those little ereri dolls?

I made them myself! They are a mix of the gsc nendoroids and doll bodies ^^. They aren’t sold just as they look right now, you need to buy the parts and put them together on your own.

For this you get the head of the nendoroid, and then adjust a doll body to it, which is bigger than the regular nendoroid body, and has more joints so you can pose them, dress them up, etc. 

The bodies are not really meant to be used with those heads so you need to make some adjustements, either break and cut a bit the doll body, or buy additional joints/pieces to adjust them (and you always need to have tape close by to reinforce it because it moves a lot lol). But the results are worth it! 

I think I might make a tutorial someday if people is interested, when I get some new bodies (since they have to be brand new to show the whole process).

You can do this with any nendoroid, just swap the heads. Many japanese fans have little dolls like these, you will see a lot of them on twitter.

It can be an expensive hobby if you don’t control yourself though… haha. I’ve barely started and I already spent a lot, because at first you need the nendoroids (I had those already bought from last year but still), you need to import the doll bodies from japan, the additional accessories, etc.

But then you need to buy shoes and clothes (and here is where I have no control… and sometimes they are more expensive than my own! unbelievable), and before you realize it you start buying furniture, checking out doll houses… and there’s no end to it!

I also bought other things like books with tutorials to sew the clothes on my own. But they’re so small, it takes a lot of time and patience, and I have none of those things so for the moment I prefer to buy them :P.

I actually really hate being extremely introverted, and I’d give up just about anything to be a natural high-energy extrovert.

I’m not shy and I don’t have any kind of social anxiety, and I generally like people. I just grew up as an unattended single child and I’m used to spending a lot of time on my own, and I also need that ample time and space to pursue my intellectual and artistic hobbies (translation: I need several hours a day to piss away on videogames, films/anime, reading/writing and other shit). Paradoxically, I really like people but I also like to control the amount of communication and be on my own a lot. In the end this has made me hyper extroverted and intensely social online, and almost a hermit in real life. 

I feel like I can’t keep up with extroverts, even though I really, really want to. My pace is much more lax and I don’t enjoy spontaneity. 

I also don’t really dig spending time with a lot of my introverted brethren because way too many of them either chalk their introversion up to just being “intellectually elevated” above other people and are weirdly snooty about it, or have some kind of social anxiety that makes them unfun and draining to be around. Nothing is more of a downer than somebody whose entire being and body language screams “I JUST WANT TO BE AT HOME” whenever they go out.

Anyway TL;DR if there’s some way I can trick myself into being more extroverted and outgoing, let me know about it. Maybe I should investigate some kind of self-hypnosis?

A person I was friends with was talking about a book they read which was like a fairy tale but the protagonist was psychotic and how grossly thrilling it was. They then proceeded to describe the opening sequence where the character escapes from a mental hospital and READ ALOUD a rape hallucination scene. I tried to tell them that the mental hospital & *spooky edgy ps*ch** trope was gross, but they shrugged and said “Okay, it’s problematic. It’s just a book. I don’t give two shits if the SJWs come for me. I’m enjoying it.”

So I felt really upset at them. Days later, I heard them making jokes with some people about defective arms and wheelchairs. When I asked about it later and said it made me feel unsafe, they said it was just a joke and I needed to stop making everything about my disorder.

That (now ex-) friend may have anxiety and not be neurotypical, but it hurt worse from someone who should have understood.

i was at a family gathering and no one said my deadname or preferred name, they just used honey or sweetie or whatever n it made me rly happy bc like its a step forward but then when i was saying goodbye to everyone my uncle just has to say "bye *deadname* see you!!" and it made me so upset n it ruined my day but idk how to talk to him about it. hes SUPER conservative and im afraid he doesnt like my choices so chooses to ignore it. help

I’m really sorry about that, and I’m sorry your uncle ruined a day that was going well for you.

Whatever his beliefs and opinions, you know yourself better than anyone, and as long as you know you are valid, then you don’t need someone like him. It sucks having to hear your deadname, but it doesn’t change who you really are, you know?

If you do want to talk to him, though, I’d suggest starting off slow. Don’t be accusing, don’t get frustrated, don’t tell him off - most likely that will just lead to him ignoring your side of things. You don’t want him to get defensive. Instead, start off with basic information. Don’t be argumentative or even persuasive; just state things as facts, and present resources if needed. Don’t let him, no matter what he says or do, make you doubt yourself. Don’t sound unsure as you’re talking to him; this will just invite problems. 

Above all else, be safe. If talking to him is going to lead to serious problems, maybe it’s best just to let this relative slide. It sucks, but we have to pick our battles. We can’t get through to everyone; some choose to stay in the dark ages, and there isn’t a whole lot we can do. 

I wish you luck, whatever you choose to do.

Hi! A few months ago, I sent in an ask about taking advantage of minority opportunities in college admissions, and Jay basically gave me the okay. I really needed to hear it from someone who was also mixed, and it helped me a lot. I recently got into a really good school with a scholarship, and I feel a lot less guilty about this, so I just wanted to say thanks! It made a huge difference in how I approached schools-I don't feel like I'm stealing a place anymore. I feel like I can enjoy it now!

Yay that’s great! I hope you enjoy college!

Writing Science Fiction: Tips for Beginners

We’ve seen a lot of science fiction stories over the past year or so. It’s not like they sci-fi ever went out of style, but it seems to be gaining popularity recently.

For some, writing science fiction might seem like a daunting genre to break into. Do you need to know complex mathematical equations? Do you need to know exactly how space travel works? Did you need to major in astrophysics?

Sure, those things don’t hurt, but they’re absolutely not necessary. You can write a great sci-fi novel without years of research. And you can tell a really interesting story, even if you’re not a science pro.

Here are a few tips to get started:

Consider ‘What-if’ Scenarios

This isn’t just a great rule for sci-fi novels, but I think the best ones use this approach. Start off with a simple what-if scenario. For example: what if we lived on a world made of ice? What if in this particular world only consisted of women? Obviously, you’ll need to expand on those scenarios and spend time really developing what those caveats would mean, but you get the idea.

Start with a small what-if scenario and brainstorm!

Figure Out Your Rules

I don’t think writing great sci-fi depends on being 100% scientifically accurate ALL THE TIME, but I do think you need to stick to your own rules. Whatever is a hard rule for your own universe, it’s important to keep it that way. Does your world have ships that can travel quickly from planet to planet? Sure, that’s great! Figure out your own rules for space travel and develop your world. How do the inhabitants on one planet act/grow/eat/interact compared to the inhabitants of another? Spend time developing these ideas!

No Info Dumps!

Sometimes when people write science fiction, they tend to explain their universe all in one big info-dump. Don’t. This is boring and it does nothing to serve your story. Slowly reveal information. Every plot point in your story should serve a purpose. Develop your characters through the action and show off your worlds through them. Get creative.

Keep it Vague

If you’re unsure about the science of something, write to your strengths. Don’t understand how space travel works? Maybe your MC is put to sleep during a long trip. This is just one example, but try to figure out a way to make it work for you. Maybe avoid space travel altogether if it doesn’t serve your story.

Listen, this isn’t a substitute for research, but I also don’t want you to avoid writing science fiction if you just don’t get a lot of the concepts involved. If you’ve got a great idea for a story, work it out to fit your style. Science fiction is a great platform for unique and compelling character studies, so don’t get scared off! You don’t have to write hard science fiction in order to write a good novel.

im not saying nina taught sonny to read, but that is what she tells people

drew Scrooge Mccree for @francisxie for his birthday yesterday! I’ve been trying to get myself back into drawing since I haven’t really made any new art in a long time, so this was a great way to get back into the habit.

Thanks for the request, and I hope you enjoyed your birthday!

anonymous asked:

Steph. There's a post going around arguing that our John doesn't love Sherlock but despises him (it's not an anti johnlock post tho) and it made me ridiculously sad. Can you give some examples of John loving Sherlock? :( It really bothered me

Yeah, Nonny, I saw that one too. While I can understand where the argument lies, Uhhhh I just don’t see it the way they do. I’ve written a similar meta before, but I never broke it down before. This isn’t all of them, just a short little list…for instance:

  • FIRST OF ALL: JOHN’S BLOG. If I didn’t know that it was official, I would have thought it was a fan-site. It’s terribly romantic and John essentially fawns over Sherlock in almost every entry. Read especially the entries done during the hiatus. They’re… just… JOHN, PLEASE.
  • Martin’s acting. Just, every time John is around Sherlock, his face does 300 different emotions, but the most blatant is lust / adoration / incredulity. 
  • Anytime the show is in John’s POV, it’s just… Sherlock is this ethereal being that John “can look but not touch”.
  • THE FUCKING PILOT. Just… The whole Pilot. John is literally one step away from jumping Sherlock in a back alley. And the really gay rooftop music. Just. Listen to that and be amazed at how gay that is. That’s ALL from John’s POV. AND John had this look on his face:
  • ASIP:
    • John had a limp until Sherlock came into his life and gave it new meaning.
    • John has trust issues – Mycroft confirms this and says John doesn’t trust easily – yet for some reason he was okay with Sherlock. “And the madman himself? He’s fascinating.”
    • He hits on Sherlock the first night. Granted this isn’t a sign of love, but dear god John had no idea that one little thing and rejection would start his endless pining.
    • Laughing against the wall together, and in awe at Sherlock curing his limp.
    • The eye sex. Good god, the eye sex. 
    • He stands up to Mycroft DEFENDING Sherlock and he has no idea who Mycroft is or what he’s capable of.
    • Even though he didn’t know Sherlock that long, he ran after Sherlock when the phone pinged.
    • He killed a man for Sherlock after knowing him for only about 24 hours, and had no guilt about it.
  • TBB
    • His PIN is “SHER”. Like at this point he’s only known Sherlock for a couple months and he already changed his PIN to “SHER”???? COME ON, JOHN, PLEASE.
    • He goes after Sherlock rather than protect Soo Lin, because he is worried Sherlock will hurt himself.
    • Spends his whole date with Sarah thinking about and talking to Sherlock. He constantly checks over his shoulder to see Sherlock’s reactions to literally everything.
    • And this was all after he just constantly lingers his gaze over Sherlock for the first half of the episode.
    • Eye sex.
  • TGG
    • He has incredible guilt about the blog post that causes the Yard to make fun of Sherlock.
    • “I thought you would have been flattered”. Literally John is hurt that Sherlock seemingly doesn’t like his blog. They had a fucking DOMESTIC because of a BLOG POST and John’s hurt feelings. Hashtag MARRIED.
    • John races back to Baker Street from Sarah’s AFTER SHE’S SUGGESTIVE WITH HIM just to make sure Sherlock is okay.
    • John’s jealousy towards Jim flirting with Sherlock.
    • *sighs* EYE SEX.
    • John was willing to kill The Golem for Sherlock.
    • John, strapped to a bomb vest, took an opening and grappled and held on tight to Moriarty, told Sherlock to run. Essentially, he was willing to sacrifice his body to a slurry of gunfire and an explosion if only Sherlock would be safe from Moriarty.
    • “People would talk.” Why does that concern you so much, John.
    • Then, John was willing to die with Sherlock, without hesitation. They shared one single look and it was done.
  • ASiB
    • John’s jealousy throughout the entire episode; he wouldn’t be jealous if there wasn’t some latent pining.
    • MORE eye sex and toffee eyes, or John looking like a kicked puppy for half the episode because he is sad that Irene seems to have taken his place.
    • John essentially gives up dating in this episode.
    • John goes on a case for Sherlock because Sherlock was too lazy to go on his own.
    • John checking out Sherlock in a sheet. 
    • Followed by them being silly.
    • The unnecessary tackle.
    • John had a date the night that Irene drugged Sherlock, but John stayed home to take care of Sherlock instead. Oh and the bum pat. JOHN, PLEASE.
    • John’s concern about Sherlock’s danger night has him teaming up with both Mrs Hudson and Mycroft.
    • John decided to try to pick up Sherlock again, only to be cock-blocked by Irene.
    • Even though he was with Jeanette, John consistently pays more attention to Sherlock at Christmas, eventually driving Jeanette to call John out on his obsession with Sherlock, naming Sherlock as her “competition”.
    • Irene knows EXACTLY what John likes. 
    • John confronts Irene and tells her to tell Sherlock she’s alive, because he hates seeing Sherlock upset; he thinks Sherlock was grieving about her, and not over his confused feelings John.
    • Irene essentially tells John HE LOVES SHERLOCK. She compares herself to him, AND JOHN DOESN’T DENY IT, but silently acknowledges that yes, he and Sherlock are a couple.
    • John wants to talk about what happened at Battersea, but Sherlock denies him because Sherlock’s scared of his own feelings and thinks he’s protecting John from Moriarty by keeping him at arm’s length.
    • John thinks Sherlock would be hurt to discover that Irene is for-real dead this time, so he chooses to lie, because John doesn’t want Sherlock to go into a sad fit again. John chose the “kinder” option, and then gives Sherlock what he wants when he asks for the phone even though it is not allowed.
  • THOB
    • John goes on a holiday with Sherlock. Just… they go on a holiday. There’s no argument about it, just… they go.
    • John doesn’t deny that he and Sherlock are together when the Innkeeper assumes they are together, rather he deflects, because it’s too close to the truth.
    • John pulls rank to show off to Sherlock for a change.
    • The cheekbones and the coat collar, essentially revealing that he stares at Sherlock all the time.
    • John forgives Sherlock for his brashness, experimentation, and ignorance of John.
  • TRF
    • Eye sex.
    • Another “people will talk” comment when they hold hands, and THEN John still holds onto Sherlock’s sleeve while Sherlock is babbling on.
    • John’s anger at both Kitty and Jim, defending Sherlock’s honour.
    • The rooftop exchange between the two and John’s unwavering faith in Sherlock (“I know you for real”).
    • John’s complete breakdown at seeing Sherlock dead.
    • The graveyard. Fuck.
  • MHR 
  • TEH
    • John physically goes to Baker St. to “move on”. John couldn’t, in 2 years, bring himself to stay at Baker Street because it reminded him too much of Sherlock. Mrs Hudson calls him out on how he was “after” and John doesn’t say anything. Then he is angry about the comment that they were a couple because THEY WEREN’T. He blames himself for Sherlock’s death. 
    • To “move on”, John jumps into a relationship to get over Sherlock believing that his miracle would never come, only to have Sherlock come back at the worst moment and Mary manipulate John into a proposal.
    • Donde Estas, Yolanda? This song pretty much is John’s heart speaking.Actually, most of the music selection is really very “John” and his inner turmoil of trying to understand if he should try to make a move on Sherlock. Music in Sherlock is always important; it’s always projecting the feelings of either John or Sherlock on a subtextual level.
    • More eye sex.
    • John returning to Baker Street on his own, before the bonfire, dressed in his old outfit… It’s the only time in the whole episode he dresses like “pre-S3” John"… And his oscillation on the pavement and all that. 
    • And John’s RETURNS to 221b a second time. Because he can’t stay away.
    • I know it doesn’t look like it, but John forgave Sherlock.
    • “I was hooked. He’s like a drug.” JOHN, PLEASE.
    • #SherlockLives means #JohnWatsonLives. JOHN H. WATSON, PLEASE.
  • TSo3
    • SURPRISE! More eye sex and toffee eyes.
    • Stag night, pretty much all of it. It’s clear John is trying to loosen Sherlock up to make him more receptive to John’s advances. John tries to hit on Sherlock one more time before the marriage, but Sherlock was too drunk to understand what was happening. John assumes, with finality, that Sherlock doesn’t want him that way.
    • The obviously staged tumble forward to grab at Sherlock’s knee, followed by, “I don’t mind” and an indifferent shrug.
    • “I’m there if you want it.”
    • John’s first reaction to Sherlock’s adorable confusion after the best man speech was to hug Sherlock; he loves him so much that he is very moved by Sherlock’s admission to the whole of the room to how much John means to Sherlock. John even cried beforehand, and you can just SEE his FUCKING FACE glow every time he looks at Sherlock.
    • John ALSO grabs and holds Sherlock’s neck not once but twice in this episode.
    • John cluing in at the end of the episode that Sherlock does indeed feel something more for John when they share a look, and not being able to deal with his mistake, so he no-homo’d out of there because it hurt too much.
  • HLV
    • Only a month into their marriage, John is having wet dreams about Sherlock, and is visibly disappointed when Sherlock is not the one at the door.
    • John contacts Mycroft when Sherlock is overdosed.
    • Only to kick him out shortly after because he is upsetting Sherlock.
    • He tries to make Sherlock laugh and succeeds.
    • John’s jealousy once again, this time over Janine.
    • John’s longing looks to Sherlock.
    • John’s subtle “I want to come, too” when Sherlock mentions the case.
    • When John is searched at the flat, he makes a joke about his dick IN FRONT OF SHERLOCK to another man.
    • John’s immediate reaction to Sherlock being shot.
    • John’s off-screen acceptance to let Sherlock show him the truth about his murderer.
    • Mary knew that John loved Sherlock. It’s the whole reason she needed Sherlock gone, because John was starting to stray.
    • She didn’t want John to name the baby.
    • “John, you are addicted to a certain lifestyle. You’re abnormally attracted to dangerous situations and people.” [x]
    • Not really confirmed, but fandom assumes John left to stay at Baker Street during the 6 months we haven’t seen to care for Sherlock.
    • John’s acceptance at Sherlock’s plan for Appledore, even though it’s Christmas.
    • John not even flinching at the “damsel in distress” line.
    • John begrudgingly allowing himself to be flicked in the face just because Sherlock begged him to.
    • John’s horrified expression when Sherlock kills someone for him.
    • The Tarmac Scene, pretty much the whole thing. It’s set up like Casablanca’s plane scene, and John knows he has to let Sherlock go; he fumbles to find the right words to say to Sherlock. John, though, knew exactly what Sherlock was going to / wanted to say, and I think it hurts him that Sherlock never admitted his feelings.
  • TAB 
    • Because this episode takes place entirely in Sherlock’s head, I don’t think we should really include it in this list, but I’m going to anyway, since Sherlock actually picked up on John’s love for him. He knows that John will accept him regardless of his faults if he confessed his love for him. I think this is why S4 doesn’t sit right with me, because it completely diverted from this HUGE revelation that Sherlock had made in TAB.
    • Sherlock understands that John will always choose him, in the end. Again, another thing that makes S4 so OOC.
    • Also something that should be noted, running on the assumption that the modern scenes may possibly be real, John is concerned about the overdose and the fact that it could kill Sherlock.
    • Mycroft’s plea to John signifies that Myc knows about how much John cares for Sherlock.

And these are a crapshoot, because the whole series did a 180˚ with the narrative and John’s character. I’m so angry because I don’t believe for one second John would choose Mary over Sherlock. Anyway, here goes:

Granted, it gets less and less obvious in S3 and S4; S3 because I believe that we are in Sherlock’s POV and he perceives his relationship with John differently, and in S4 because I believe that S4 is a false narrative and it literally took great pains to keep them separated for some stupid reason.

Finally, I’ve also written about why John loves Sherlock in past posts, because of similar discourse:

I hope all of these help you feel better, Nonny, and please, everyone, I most likely will have missed many-a-point, so please add to them – I study Sherlock’s character more than John’s, so I have a harder time seeing John’s cues!

Humans are weird

I really love this whole humans are like the biggest oddity for aliens idea.
And I had this idea that’s swimming in my head for a while now.
If the aliens already think it’s a wonder we survive the conditions of our planet,
how must they think about our way of reproduction.
I mean the whole mammal-thing developed
practically only cause a little creature once thought:
“Eggs!?When they’re dinosaurs everywhere??I have a better idea!”

So what if aliens never needed to make this step?
When their reproductions are mostly through eggs,
sometimes other things and never like our system?

I mean just imagine:
You are one of the first humans to become a crewmate of a alien crew.
It was your dream since the first contact was made.
You were prepared for almost everything.
Just not for giving every damn alien you meet “the bloody talk“!

Somewhere in a bar on Planet Ur’tlz:

Alien A: “Whoa, this humans are really useful and stronger than they look!
You would never believe what the human of my ship did!”

Alien B: “Please tell me they didn’t gave you ‘the talk’….I’m still traumatized…”

A: “….what are you talking of?”

B: “I made the error to ask how they get their eggs to be safe
despite the dangerous planet they live on….they don’t lay eggs!”

A: “What?!

B: “They carry their brood like….
like parasites *shudder* in their body for almost a Quertemz!
Then they squeeze them through tiny body openings!
Sometimes for days!DAYS!

A: “Uh….”

B: “And it’s common to only get one offspring per reproduction!One!
They can die in the process, for Iz’klls sake!”

A: “I think my digestive system is rebelling…”

B: “So I decided to oversee the contact my human makes with other humans.
Because of some reason they only reproduce with humans of other gender,
so its not that hard….

A: “A bit….drastic, don’t you think?

B: “I like my human crew mate!
I don’t want them to die just cause the other humans
can’t let their weird little limbs of them!”

A: “Sounds like they imprinted on you.”

B: “Maybe…sounds like something crewmate George would do…”


You have to understand that there is a larger picture involved. At that point it’s not about your talent. If you are at the network test you are clearly good enough to play that part. After that, it’s assembling a production, a cast that looks good together, that works well together, everything just kinda needs to fit. That is not a very obvious thing. You can’t take it personally. You just can’t. It’s easier said than done. But if I were not to have gotten the role I would have been devastated and really sad, but I wouldn’t have taken it personally. It wouldn’t have made me feel that I was a bad actor, I just would have been pissed off about my luck. Because this really is a game of luck.

How about Enjolras who stress cleans?

Combeferre and Courfeyrac both know from living with Enjolras that the state of the house is a clear indication of how stressed Enjolras is.

  • A clean kitchen means that Enjolras is stuck on a part of his essay or speech and needs half an hour to come up with just the right phrase.
  • Their bedrooms all tidied up means that he’s finished off a major piece of work and isn’t happy with the result but just can’t get it to work.
  • Enjolras following you around with a broom and dustpan and yelling at you for dropping crumbs on the floor means he’s just had a particularly awful argument conversation or read something that really made him angry and it’s best to stay out of his way.
  • Coming home to a house smelling like hospital grade cleaning products means Enjolras is worried about someone and doesn’t know how to express his concern

Combeferre and Courfeyrac have learnt to just let Enjolras be when he gets like this, knowing he’ll come out of it in his own time.

But Grantaire hasn’t lived with Enjolras before, so when they start dating, he doesn’t know that avoiding the stressed blonde is perfectly acceptable. So instead, he comes up with his own way of helping Enjolras deal.

  • Grantaire who introduces Enjolras to stress baking so that they can at least enjoy the fruits of all that energy spent.
  • Grantaire who takes Enjolras to his studio so that their fearless leader can take his aggression out on paints and then pass it off as Enjolras creating art (”people get paid obscene amounts to do this you know, and you’re a natural - I think you could get rich from this!”)
  • Grantaire who sits down with Enjolras one day and researches on environmentally friendly cleaning products and alternatives to store bought products (”all the blogs say baking soda and vinegar, E - we’ll need to go shopping”) because he doesn’t like how dry and calloused Enjolras’s hands are because the dope doesn’t bother with gloves when he cleans.

Enjolras learns to make the most delicious puff pastries and home-made macarons (and Grantaire starts complaining he’s putting on weight).

Grantaire sneaks in one of E’s artwork in his exhibition as a guest work and calls it “Fury” - it sells for obscene amounts of money (much to Enjolras’s dismay and Grantaire’s delight)
