Les Mis + The Onion Headlines (2/?)
pink had never been
eponine’s colour. it was too garish, too sickly, too sweet, too
tender, it was too most things. eponine felt far more at home in greys,
blacks, reds and golds – bold, but not too much of anything. cosette delighted in pinks of all shades but especially pastel pinks
that seemed to intensify how soft and warm her complexion was, eponine
noted. after cosette moved in, pink began to drip through their home, from cushions to bed
linen, make-up to toothbrushes. with every pink item that made its
way to eponine, cosette smiled. cosette smiled at pink and that’s how
eponine decided pink was her favourite colour.
Fortunately, Les Miserables was translated by an actual lyricist and not by Google Translate.
(Her alternate version of “One Day More” – or should I say “Extra Day” – is great too.)
Des belles fleurs: [Art + drabble fill] A canon era AU where Éponine survives the barricade and meets Cosette once again. Both girls learn to deal with their pasts, somehow.
Cosette/Éponine I did for ao3 user sonatadream up at @lesjoursdete canon-era Les miserábles exchange! Please check the ao3 entry as I wrote a few snippets to go with the pictures,
In return I got Keep me close, a wonderful nsfw Enjoltaire by sonatadream (!!!!!??? wow I just noticed this!) thank you so much dear ❤
ooh, I missed this somehow?? Your style is always so lush! I love the colors here; even though they’re so soft, every picture still feels totally saturated with them. And I love the little story playing out over the pictures!
Cosette! Now I remember. We were children together, now look what’s become of me.
