(aaahhh sorry this took me so long! im not quite happy with it but anway here’s some cute gfs getting married)
Cosette and Eponine have been together for years now and they never really discussed the subject of marriage.
get me wrong, Cosette loves the whole idea of wearing a beautiful dress
and walking down the aisle to promise to spend her life loving Eponine
but her girlfriend never made any hints that it was something she wanted
and she doesn’t want to pressure her. It’s not like she minds - they
don’t need a wedding ring to prove their love, so she stays quiet about
Little does she know Eponine actually does want to get married
and she’s been thinking about it a lot lately, especially after
Combeferre and Courfeyrac got married a few months ago as the first ones
in their group.
But how on earth do you bring up this kind of
topic? Just proposing out of the blue is out of the question. Not if
she doesn’t know if Cosette even wants to.
“Just talk about
this like adults” Grantaire groans when she talks (read: whines) to him
about it. She raises an eyebrow and scoffs in response.
mean like you and Enjolras are?” “Shut up” She knows Grantaire has been
thinking about proposing as well, however Enjolras has always had pretty
clear opinions on marriage in the past and he’s scared of being
rejected. What a hypocrite though.
They’re having a quiet
night in, curled up on the couch together with a glass of wine, when
Eponine does take Grantaire’s advice.
“Hey Zette?” Cosette hums in reponse, her head resting on Eponine’s shoulder.
“Do you ever think about getting married someday?”
She feels the body next to her still. “yeah of course, do you?”
Eponine only nods, nervously skimming her finger over the top of her wine glass.
you ever consider getting married…to me?” Cosette sits up to look at
her but she keeps her gaze firmly on the glass, pressing her lips
“Ep, I love you. Of course I considered it! I just…you
never seemed interested in marriage and i didn’t want to scare you off”
Eponine’s head shoots back up again “I am interested though!”
“So you want to get married?” “Yes!” “Good.”
Cue them beaming at each other like the adorable lovebirds they are.
next weeks Eponine spends looking for a ring and planning the perfect
proposal because now that she knows they both want this, she can’t wait.
But in the end Cosette beats her to it by proposing first while having a
picnic in the park. It’s all sappy and perfect and they proceed to
spend the rest of the day dozing cuddled together on the blanket,
neither of them quite believing the other is now their fiancée
course all of Les Amis are ecstatic when they find out and help out
with their wedding arrangements. (Eponine may have whispered “now it’s
your turn” into Grantaire’s ear when he hugged her)
Eponine nor Cosette are one for big pompous weddings so it ends up being
a small beautiful ceremony with just their friends, Valjean and
Eponine’s siblings present (her parents are absolutely not invited).
rented a lovely little venue and there are flowers everywhere,
especially violets, white magnolias and ivy (Jehan helped a lot with
Cosette looks stunning in her lacy bohemian dress and
flowers in her hair and so does Eponine who decided to wear a dashing
tuxedo instead. Both can’t take their eyes off each other as Cosette is
led down the aisle by her father.
Both of them cry during their vows but no one’s eyes stay quite dry (even Montparnasse blinks suspiciously often)
When the officiant announces “you may now kiss the bride” Eponine dips Cosette for the big smooch.
During their first dance these two are simply glowing (imagine ‘forever with me’ by nedra johnson this song is gay jsyk)
of course dances with Cosette for the traditional father-daughter dance
whereas Eponine dances with Gavroche who keeps twirling her around to
make her laugh.
The newlyweds get home in the early morning
hours, drunkenly giggling and clinging to each other happily. Eponine is
carrying her shoes in her hands and Cosette’s cheek ended up covered
in Eponine’s lipstick during the taxi ride home.
is forgotten as soon as they’re over the doorstep and kisses turn
heated. “We do have to consumate the marriage properly”, Ep whispers
against her new wife’s lips as she guides her into the bedroom.
Why Phichit is literally the best and you can fight me if you think otherwise
Ok so we all know how important it was for him to skate to “Shall We Skate” right? But I don’t think people understand why I make such a big deal over it.
When I saw how devoted Phichit was to wanting to skate to “Shall We Skate” it reminded me of when I saw the new Disney princess, Elena of Avalor.
The key to him getting into the GPF was representation. He saw himself in the lead actor, he saw himself skating to the music in that movie, he saw himself entertaining a crowd and relating to a character in a movie who looked like him.
He probably trained day and night to get the choreography right, land his jumps, and record what it looked like in order to perfect it and move on to the next event. He probably felt like he needed to do the film justice and honor what the actor tried to portray in the film. He is an entertainer and he delivered such a great performance all because the actor looked like him and he saw himself in that.
As someone who struggles with finding representation in the media, this really spoke to me. When Phichit started crying, it reminded me of when I first saw Elena of Avalor. Seeing someone who looks like me and inspires me to do crazy things like that is so comforting in a world that tries to tell you to be a certain way. Phichit is definetly a character I relate with too just in how fun and pure he is, but it’s also important to have someone who looks like you and is from the same country and whatnot, because their victories end up being yours too.
I love the fact that they added this in the anime and have such diversity. I know it’s because its a sport where you meet people from all around the world, but I still like the gesture of including so many different personalities and such.
I could just be over analyzing the situation, but it made me cry to see someone else so moved through representation in the media. Yuri!!! On Ice was the best thing to happen to anime and I hope we see more of Phichit and the rest of the squad next year.
Here is a question I have. See, we never see Victor’s final pose for his Free Skate, Stammi Vicino. Since Yuri does a perfect copy, we know what it looks like, but not what Victor’s expression was. It’s a very lonely kind of ending pose, arms wrapped around himself, looking beseechingly up into the sky. Lots of people have talked about how the Aria is all about that cripplingly lack of love.
(Whoever drew Yuri in this frame, ten thumbs up, the right hand behind his back, his smile, ;u;)
My follow-up questions is: what did the ending of the pair skate look like??? The routine has obviously changed a lot as Victor and Yuri skate together and the Duet is also shorter! The song is almost twice the length of the animated sequence (a whole ‘nother minute), although the animated sequence does end at the melodic climax. It has very delicate ending unlike the super intense Aria high note. The combination spin and big finish pose that was in the Aria seems totally unsuitable for the duet!
Maybe we’ll find out when we get those choreography videos in the DVDs?? I’m simply dying of curiosity, haha!
