up next: les mis

listen…..modern au where fantine has a v lorelai-rory relationship with cosette AND cosette’s lesbian gf eponine. fantine knows eponine comes from a rough family so she tries her very best to shower her with all the love and protection she’s never received at home

More sibling R and Ferre headcanons (The treehouse)
  • when they were like 5, they moved into a house with a big tree in the backyard, and the only thing they asked for for christmas was a treehouse
  • and so their dad delivered, and that spring he built them a terribly ratty looking and absolutely perfect treehouse
  • it was just one tiny room, maybe like 4x5, nothing all that special really
  • but it was perched up in the tree and to R and Ferre it was the
  • coolest
  • fucking
  • thing
  • EVER
  • every day after school, they would clamber up the rope ladder and play superheroes, or pirates or astronauts
  • and even when they got too old to for that kind of thing, they’d go up there and do homework
  • a lot of firsts happened in that treehouse
  • Ferre lost his first tooth up there(which was totally accidental and totally R’s fault)
  • it was the home of R’s first (second, third, fourth, fifth and so forth) adventure into spray paint
  • it was where Ferre had his first kiss (the cute curly haired one down the street)
  • it was where they both got high for the first time
  • their childhood treehouse is truly the ultimate symbol of their childhood
  • and it grew with them too
  • the summer after R had his first woodshop class, he added on a balcony that was only barely held up by stilts
  • when Ferre had his astrology kick, he cut out a hole in the room for optimal star gazing and mapped them out on the ceiling
  • the walls are covered in years worth of art
  • not only spray paint but acrylic and wheat paste 
  • each year is a specific colour
  • (starting from the year they were ten years old, it goes green, yellow, blue, orange, red, purple, black, white, and then green again)
  • neither of them can bear the thought of having to tear it down, despite the fact that it’s suuuuch a huge hazard
  • whenever ferre comes back from college (and then eventually grad school) he spends his nights up in the treehouse.
  • r does too, a lot more than he’d like to admit
  • (because the treehouse is truly the ultimate symbol of their childhood)
  • (the one that’s long gone)

Heeeeeyyyyy, Lia!

Lia! You goddamn millennial slouch! Stop dicking around on your phone and listen up! You’re supposed to be recapping the next chapter of Les Mis!

Aw, Lia, that’s a bunch of boring historico-political junk. You know I’m not interested in that stuff. I thought I’d just jokingly Not Really Recap It At All the way I did with the Waterloo section!

You know, it might be more interesting to you if you bothered reading a couple of Wikipedia articles to give you an actual context. And I suspect having a rudimentary understanding of the political crap involved is going to help you appreciate the next part of the story more. It’s not just prison, personal tragedies, and guiltllucinations anymore, babe! They have like an entire fucking failed revolution or whatever.

Screw you!

Dude, I’m saving you time and effort! It’s a hell of a lot easier to explain something in a funny way when you know at least a little bit about it.

…So you think I should, what, just…read, then Wikipedia this shit until I think I have a handle on what I just read and my eyes aren’t skating over half the text like it’s a roller rink, then try and give a quick rundown?

Pretty much.

Can I at least do it section by section? In small, manageable chunks, you know. Like, one post per Roman Numeral Entry Of VHugz Political Bloviating?

Sure. It’s your blog.

Okaaaaaaaaay.

Fiiiiiiiiine.

Great! Let’s get to it, shall we?

For the fic timestamp thing, Pick Up Off the Floor, one year later, cause I always wondered what happened after that one. Feel free to rip my heart out and smash it. Orrrrrr Anyway You Want It, because your note says you originally planned more C/E/R in it and I'm greedy. Those two are my favorites because I guess I like Enjolras being heartbroken.

[anyway you want it]

Grantaire arches his eyebrows at the flowers in Combeferre’s hands. “Did I forget an anniversary?”

“Oh!” Enjolras rises from where he’s sprawled out on the couch. “It wasn’t on the calendar the last time I checked, but don’t worry, I can clear out in three minutes. Just let me clear my paperwork away from the living room.”

“No,” Combeferre says, turning to Enjolras. “Stay.”

Enjolras grins at him. “Made fancy dinner plans, then?”

“Actually…” Combeferre starts, and then makes his way towards Enjolras. “The flowers are for you.”

Enjolras draws in a sharp breath, surprised.

Ok, @monsieurbookshire and @heretherebebooks and other classics fans, you (and your memes) have convinced me. I picked up Les Miserables at a library sale today. I’m not sure when I’ll get to it, but I do need to read a book over 800 pages for the Popsugar Reading Challenge this year, so I’m sure I’ll pick it up sometime in the next few months.

If you asked him, Enjolras would say that he couldn’t really remember how it had all happened. That it just kind of did and now here they were together; their breaths catching slightly and their bodies pressed together.

That would be a lie, however. Enjolras remembered every aspect of how this odd and exciting situation had came to be.

It had started with a joke the day before. It was a brisk Spring afternoon and the weather was wavering on the cusp of pleasant and chilly. The sun was out, the flowers were in bloom, the sky was beautiful, and Enjolras was on edge.

anonymous asked:

Are you still taking prompts? I'm not sure, but if you are, some e/R would be lovely, coffee shop au? (or any equivalent. library au, bakery au, etc.)

The first time Grantaire meets the head of the local Local Business Association, he’s been up since three in the morning baking and he has flour all over his face. He knows this because Eponine polished up the glass display case for their baked goods when she came in at quarter to seven and he can see his reflection in it, and his reflection has white flour standing out on his face and hair.

“You’re the owner of Sticks and Scones,” the stranger across the counter informs him, like he doesn’t already know.

“I regret that situation every time my alarm wakes me up before dawn,” he says solemnly. “Can I ask who you are? And why Eponine fetched me out of the back and the holy ritual of the scones-are-baking mini-nap to see you?”

The stranger across the counter (who is, upon further examination, maybe the most beautiful single human being Grantaire has ever met and probably the second-grumpiest) holds out his hand to shake and doesn’t even flinch when he ends up with flour on his hand. “I’m Enjolras, and I own the Fair Trade grocery down the street, and I’m the head of the Local Business Association for the town, fighting to keep our main street locally owned. I thought I’d give you a few weeks to settle in before I came to speak to you.”

Grantaire turns plaintively to Eponine, who’s coaxing the coffee machine into producing sweet nectar. “You interrupted me for this?”

“Do you want to go back to sticking pans of pre-made shit in the oven at Starbucks?” she asks. “Because we can arrange that.”

“We have a very active downtown, and we’re trying to keep it that way,” Enjolras forges on. “We frequently have events, and rewards for shopping at multiple stores, and other arrangements to attract business to the area, and we hope that you’ll join us. It’s been a while since we had a bakery downtown, and we’re very glad to have you.”

Eponine elbows him, and Grantaire realizes he’s probably staring stupidly. “I’m just here to bake bread,” he says.

“If you’ll just listen to what I have to say, I promise you won’t regret the opportunity.”

Grantaire sighs and grabs a few of his best croissants out of the case, and a jar of peach-raspberry jam, hand-canned by him last summer, out of where they keep their condiments. “Sit down, we’ll have something to eat and you can tell me about your crusade to save the world one downtown at a time.”

An hour later, Enjolras has eaten two croissants with jam, one almond poppyseed muffin, and one savoury scone, all with increasing looks of surprise and muffled pornographic noises, and he and Grantaire have had no less than three arguments about corporate sponsorship, the future of the downtown, and how much harm discounts do businesses.

He expects Enjolras to leave in a snit, but instead when he’s ready to leave, he holds out his hand to shake again and smiles. “I’ll look forward to working with you, Grantaire.”

“You too,” says Grantaire, almost by accident, and sees him out the door, the shop bell tinkling as he goes.

It isn’t until he looks at the display case again that he realizes he never managed to brush the flour off his face.

solipsism-l  asked:

I feel like I should let you know that on Lauren Platt's Wikipedia page it states that you are doing a CBBC talent show called 'Got What it Takes?' this year. True or not, I know that you aren't allowed to announce what you are doing so I wanted to let you know! xx

Hello! That was announced and filmed a long while back! It’s just the one episode. Whilst I have big project that I work on like Les Mis and my next project which take up the majority of my time and efforts, I do little exciting projects and pieces here and there like Got What It Takes and the Disney Healthy Living Advert I just sang for! So don’t worry! Everyone knew about Got What It Takes and nothing has been revealed that I didn’t want revealed! <3
