I found out that doodling sweet scenes with vivid coloured pencils relieves my stress better than anything else on earth.
Small things I write at work, a panel in three snippets:
“Have you really sent a note for me when you were just two streets away from law school?” Bossuet asked quite rhetorically to Grantaire who was laying on a bench under the sun.
“Surely you mean to applaud me,” answered Grantaire, “since I’ve made one gamin richer and less idle thanks to that. Now, come on, we have a big day in front of us.“
“I have classes,” Bossuet remarked.
Grantaire blinked, and waggled his eyebrows. “I have money and a new address,” he said, and Bossuet grinned.
“Bossuet,” said Grantaire, “the gentleman is still standing.“
Bossuet grinned widely at Joly. “I do believe he is,” he replied.
“Well this is it then; the war is won; the king has fallen, and by that I mean that my head will be on the floor tomorrow. L’aigle de Mots, I will never doubt your words ever again. You said ’this man is a trusty fellow, R’ and i scoffed. Now here I am, defeated, corrected, in awe. Monsieur Joly, you have my approval.” Grantaire said.
Joly beamed. “Another drink?” he asked.
Bossuet was languid in the bed, laying sensually on the side, the white sheets covering so little that Musichetta didn’t have anything left to imagine, apart what it would be like, to run her fingers on this fine, lean body. And even that…
"My dear,“ said Joly behind her, his breath tickling her neck, his hands on her hips. "What do you say?"
Musichetta said exactly nothing, but reached for the buttons of her dress. There goes my reputation, she thought. She couldn’t remember to mind for now.
- Grantaire knows Irma Boissy well-enough that she’s personally offended by his ugliness.
- Grantaire, at the end of his first big rant, is the one noticing Louison showing up and says “Ah, c’est toi Louison. Bonjour.”
- Grantaire talks about meeting Floréal and disapproving of her new beau.
- Grantaire, albeit in manner that is very displeasing, interacts with Matelote and Gibelote.
- Since Grantaire, Joly and Bossuet are best friends, it’s not a far stretch to say that R knows Musichetta.
R is part of the lady!club and i love it so much.
honestly im so proud of myself for finishing this bc i thought for sure i’d quit after enjolras (he was the first one) anyways!!! here’s my interpretation of les amis & co. in modern/ high school au! (not college bc im a ninny) (and definitely not ripped off from the likes of @batcii)
(click for names!)
i really did try for diversity in terms of race, body, style etc etc and i know i’m not the best at it yet but if i don’t try when the feck will i be! that said, if u see an issue with it know that it was unintentional and if u’d kindly point it out i’ll do my best not to do that in the future!
design notes under the cut! :))
Since the Miserable Holidays gifts are up, I thought I’d also archive mine here. This is the full, uncropped version of Teatime at the Musain for lovely_narcissa (montparsnips); I ultimately decided there was too much ceiling in the picture and snipped out the top bit for the actual post, but I figured I’d put this here in case anyone who’d seen it was wondering what the strange white bit above the menu board was…
[Not really familiar with AU settings, but I thought it would be fun to try. (And had a ball of a time with the cake display!) The straight lines just about killed me though because (1) I obstinately refused to use the line tool in spite of the fact that (2) I can’t freehand straight lines worth squat. LOL.]
the les mis fandom is far from perfect but you have to admit that one thing we did right was musichetta we got one description from joly in the entirety of the brick and the portrayal of her in fanon has been wonderfully diverse i’ve seen so many different kinds of woc musichetta i’ve seen trans woman musichetta i’ve seen hijabi musichetta i’ve even seen disabled musichetta like good job les mis fandom we did a good thing
