I sure hope so.
les amis & social media (2/?)
oh my god i am so happy you asked
ahh i love les amis as pretentious highschool seniors okay so in the order they would appear:
bahorel’s quote is ‘It’s not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog. - Mark Twain” and, well, you know how there’s one guy in every graduating class ever who has to quote Al Davis’ ‘Just win, baby’? Yeah. Bahorel’s that guy.
bossuet’s is ‘You know, Hobbes, some days even my lucky rocket ship underpants don’t help. - Calvin and Hobbes”
and even though there’s some ‘Connors’ kid inbetween courfeyrac and combeferre and enjolras is all the way in the Es they really wanted to have a group quote, so combeferre has ‘Ever has it been’ and courfeyrac has ‘That love knows not its own depth’ and enjolras finishes with ‘Until the hour of separation’, all quoted to Shakespeare
but above the three-parter,
combeferre has “Know the rules well, so you can break them effectively. - Dalia Lama XIX”
courfeyrac’s is “‘And now,’ cried Max, ‘Let the wild rumpus start!’” - Maurice Sendak
enjolras quotes Che Guevera with “The revolution is not an apple that falls when it is ripe. You have to make it fall”
cosette has “It’s not your job to like me, it’s mine. - Byron Katie’ and under it, “That’s what people do who love you. They put their arms around you and love you when you’re not so lovable. - Deb Caletti”
feuilly, subtly throwing some shade, has ‘Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself - Leo Tolstoy’
grantaire, the little shit that he is, has “A witty saying proves nothing - Voltaire”, but above that, “Ugliness is in a way superior to beauty, because it lasts. - Serge Gainsbourg”
without any planning in advance, joly’s quote just happens to be “What’s the point of wearing your favorite rocket ship underpants if nobody ever asks to see ‘em? - Calvin and Hobbes”
musichetta, girlfriend of the yearbook editor, gets away with a bit more than the character limit as she quotes Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie twice: "Of course I am not worried about intimidating men. The type of man who will be intimidated by me is exactly the type of man I have no interest in.’ and ‘Racism should never have happened and so you don’t get a cookie for reducing it."
marius’ is ‘Friends are Gods way of apologizing for our families - Anonymous’ and courfeyrac hugs him for like five minutes straight when he reads it
jehan quotes A.A. Milne with “Weeds are flowers too, once you get to know them.”
and finally, eponine has “A wise girl kisses but doesn’t love, listens but doesn’t believe, and leaves before she is left. - Marilyn Monroe”
MCU Bucky, Sam, and Steve
HeroesCon 20414 sketch
Bucky’s grin is a bit uncanny, but I never promised amazing likenesses for these. We went the fashion route for these three, and I didn’t have too much focus on making them terribly character appropriate - I just wanted them to look goooood.
GET TO KNOW ME MEME: Favorite TV series [3/5] → Penny Dreadful.
I would never chart a river or scale a peak to take its measure or plant a flag, there’s no point. It’s solipsistic, self-aggrandizement. So, too, those scientists who study the planets seeking astronomical enlightenment for its own sake; the botanists studying the variegation of an Amazonian fern; the zoologists caught up in the endless fascination of an adder’s coils; and, for what? Knowledge for its self alone? The elation of discovery? Plant your flag on the truth. There is only one worthy goal for scientific explanation: piercing the issue that separates life from death. Everything else, from the deep bottom of the sea to the peak of the highest mountain on the farthest planet, is insignificant. Life and death, Sir Malcolm, the flicker that separates one from the other, fast as a bat’s wing, more beautiful than any sonnet…that is my river, that is my mountain. There I will plant my flag.
'paris is old. is many centuries. you feel, in paris, all the time gone by.'
something for barricade day! ..and enjolras and grantaire holding hands in a slightly different situaition..
