the other day I was taking a walk when I saw this old guy trapped under a cart. people were trying to help him but it was too heavy so I stepped forward and lifted it off him (I work out a lot.) then, this old police inspector told me I had to be a convict because of how strong I was. I looked him straight in the eye and said, “it’s 1815. anyone can be strong, including non felons, women, and gay people. the only person who’s weak here is you.” he started crying and gave me fifty crowns while everyone clapped, even the nuns

I will never get over the fact that they actually said a pansexual hitman with a heart of gold

I’m taking it as canon now that Wade really has Logan’s number in his phone as Jean Valjean.

I’m continuing to slowly go through my stuff from the last trips. Am I that bad at googling, or is the Ham4Ham vid with LMM as Loud Hailer really the only time we ever got pictorial evidence of Monley!vert in costume? I’m usually not into bearded Javerts but I really liked his look on stage. 😦

jean valjean had taken no part in the fighting except to expose himself to it. had it not been for him, no one in that last phase of that desperate struggle would have thought of the wounded. thanks to him, like an angel of m e r c y everywhere present among the carnage, those who fell were picked up, carried to the bar room, and their wounds dressed. in between, he repaired the barricade. but nothing that could be seen as an act of hostility or aggression, or even as self-defence, proceeded from his hands.

Musical!Valjean: He’s like the son I might have known, if God had granted me a son!
Book!Valjean: I can’t believe I’ve gotta drag this shabby fuckboy all the way through the goddamn sewers… doin’ it for Cosette, though. Doin’ it for Cosette.

Hello! Could I ask a question about fashion? In “Dawn,” Hugo says that Cosette dressed her hair herself because it was simple in those days, but in all of the fashion plates from the era, women’s hair looks really complicated — they have it looped up on the top and curled on the sides. Were hairstyles simpler in the daytime and only more complicated in the evening? Or is it because Cosette is unmarried? Thanks :)

That is a really good question! There were of course simpler hairstyles available, but Hugo is very clear that Cosette IS a fashion plate, which means pretty elaborate hairdos. And there’s a few possible answers I can think of– take your pick, suggest others, or combine any of them: 

-Cosette really does do her own hair, in all the complications then in fashion. It takes a lot of time, but practice makes it faster and as a proper bourgeois girl she’s not really allowed to do much else, so that’s one of her hobbies. 

-Cosette does her own hair, but simplifies it. Everything under the bonnets that she’s definitely wearing when she heads out is pretty smooth, and she focuses on getting the visible ringlets and curls or swooping braids right. It takes less time.

– Cosette actually gets Toussaint to help, and it’s adorable. 

– Cosette actually gets Valjean to help, and it’s SUPER adorable. 

– Hugo does not know one single thing about how women in his era handled their fashion regiment, and he’s imagining Cosette with basically magic Style Powers. We all should accept that Cosette is Actually Magic  and picture bluebirds and butterflies doing her hair like she was a Disney People’s Elected Representative. 

I want to draw this, with both the Valjean helping version, and the Disney version.

yessss please do that:D
