if i ever get a DUI, i’d like it to go like this
do yourself a favor and watch this. seriously. but plz don’t drink and drive.
nature is amazing
the older I get, the less patience I have for the idea that a story is inherently complex or #deep because it has a bittersweet or tragic ending, or that people who like for things to end on a happy note are simple-minded weaklings who can’t handle harsh realities and mature storytelling.
Look, shit is fucked. Life is a mess. Sometimes it’s a struggle to even come up with a reason to go on. I respect that media should be realistic and true to life, but fucking sue me, for once I just want to see the bad guys eat shit while the good guys ride off into the sunset and never have anything bad happen to them ever again. I don’t care if it’s unrealistic or implausible, that’s why it’s a fucking story. I have enough tragedy in my real life, thanks.
ok but can we please talk about combeferre with a beard for a moment
combeferre, clean-cut and professional combeferre, who has been so busy with his shifts at the hospital that he has had no time to shave so he walks into the musain for the next meeting, apologizing for being late and enjolras stops talking immediately. all of les amis turn and look at him. jaws drop. there is not a sound to be made
and finally courfeyrac just curses and stands up like “I GIVE UP. YOU LOOK HOT EVEN WHEN YOU HAVEN’T SHOWERED OR SHAVED IN THREE DAYS. I GIVE UP” and walks right out
and combeferre just stands there horrifically confused until grantaire breaks the silence “eh, it’s alright”
Baby bird season is incoming and I’d like to remind everyone that birds do not have a significant sense of smell. Bird parents will not reject birdlets because you have handled them.
If you see smol birbs with few or no feathers on the ground, you can safely put them back into their nest, bird parents will still care for them.
If you see smol birbs with some or most feathers on the ground, please leave them there, as bird parents are probably nearby watching and feeding.
nakey bird = accidentally fell out, is cold and scared, put back in nest! if you can’t reach the nest, try to put it on a wide branch or fork so predators can’t get at it as easily.
scruffy feather bird = starting to try the fly thing, not very good at it. only put in nest/branch if predators abound, i.e. you have four outdoor cats and they’re licking their chops.
fluffy feather bird = smol fly guy! do nothing. can probably get away from predators and will flip its shit if you pick it up.
ok but consider:
-ferre coming home after a long day at the library and just plopping down at the dining table and taking off his glasses
-while he’s rubbing his eyes tiredly courf cleans his glasses on his own shirt and is, at the same time, super heart-eyes about sleepy ferre
-when ferre’s done he just automatically leans forward to get his glasses back
-ferre’s eyes are still half closed but there’s a silly half smile on his face and he looks so endearing so ofc courf’s heart starts fluttering
-but he places the glasses back on ferre ever so gently and pecks him on the nose and they both start giggling like the nerds they are
awkward flirting pre relationship courferre is my life okay (u can take this as a prompt or not hehe)
The thing is they’ve both tried flirting with each other for TWO MOTHER F**KING YEARS and neither of them gets that the other is flirting.
It started off really subtle.
Combeferre took a picture of a sunflower and sent it to Courfeyrac with the caption [found you in my garden :)].
Courfeyrac went to a nature museum without Combeferre but sent him a picture of a cool-looking moth with the caption [you ;)].
Combeferre called him minutes later, “YOU WENT TO THE MUSEUM WITHOUT ME!!!”
Courfeyrac faceplams. He knew he’d have to take it a step further…at this point they both did.
Courfeyrac stole Combeferre’s glasses to mess with him one day.
“Come on, Courf, give them back! I can’t see shit!” Ferre groaned.
“Why should I?” Courf asked.
“Because I can’t admire that beautiful face of yours without them,” Ferre replied.
Now any normal person would’ve taken that as blatant flirtation, not Courf. He just thought Ferre was trying to sweet talk him into returning his glasses (it totally worked though).
Ferre wasn’t sure if he was happy to have his glasses back, or upset that Courf still didn’t get it.
Then there was the time that Combeferre texted him late at night telling him to go to sleep because he just knew Courf was awake worrying about an exam.
[Courf, go to sleep. You’re gonna do fine on this test. Stop worrying and get some rest or so help me I will some over there]
[And what’ll u do 2 me when u get here? ;)]
[Kill you for working yourself up like this. Courfeyrac, you are smarter than you think and you’re gonna do great on this exam. Go to sleep for me?]
Combeferre is lying in his bed thinking, ‘He really doesn’t know by now that he’s amazing and I love him?’
Courfeyrac is lying in his bed thinking, ‘I just basically asked him if he wanted to have sex with me and he told me to go to sleep.’
This calls for drastic measures.
Courf actually straight up said, “Cute ass, Ferre,” as Ferre bent over to pick something up.
And Ferre just replied, “Thanks, Courf.”
Like he wasn’t even phased.
Ferre sends him the link to the song “You’re My Best Friend” by Queen because Ferre loves Queen and says, [Reminds me of you.]
Courfeyrac LISTENS TO THE SONG then types back [Aaawww Ferre! Ur my best friend 2!!!]
Ferre audible groans and almost throws his phone across the room. He immediately texts Enjolras (who’s literally two rooms over, but Ferre doesn’t feel like walking)
[Can you believe this? I sent him a LOVE song and said it reminded me of him and he still doesn’t get it! How can I flirt more obviously than that?!]
He looked at the top of his screen and saw Courf’s name, and immediately panicked. Another text came through before he reposnded.
[UR flirting with me????]
Ferre shrugs and types [Yep, have been for two years, thanks for noticing]
There’s no response, instead his phone starts ringing, it’s Courf.
Courf can barely speak he’s laughing so hard, “We’re idiots, both of us are idiots!”
“I’ve been flirting with you, too, dumbass!”
“You….wait….that was?…oh my god we are idiots!”
“I can’t believe this.”
“Come over and we can actually talk about this, I’m hanging up now, idiot.”
Courfeyrac goes to Combeferre’s place and they do talk about it…they do much more than just talk.
Life Hack: When you get sad just imagine Félix Tholomyès falling down a never ending flight of stairs and suddenly you will feel better about everything
A Beauty and the Beast AU where Belle realizing she loves Beast isn’t at some dramatic climactic event but during some randome everyday moment. Like, she’s filing her nails and just kinda glances up at him and he’s like doing something just as dull and it just kinda dawns on her that she loves him but she doesn’t voice it cause she isn’t exactly ready to confront thoes emotions and what they mean so she goes back to filing her nails but then is starts raining glitter and Beast is defying gravity in a glowing ball of light and the castle is changing back and everyone becomes human again. Then everyone is left in silent moment of shock and confusion and Belle, being completely unaware of what it takes to break the curse, is just staring around in horror while everyone freshly humanized comes running into whatever room she and Beast were in (probably the library) expecting to see something other than human Beast in a heap on the ground and Belle across the room in a chair frozen in shock and confusion and everyone just kinda looks at each other for a couple of seconds not realy sure what to say cause nobody is entirely sure what happened other than the curse was broken. Then Beast finaly gets up and looks around and realizes what this means and looks at Belle and is just like “you love me?” And Belle is just like “wat?”
Y’all saw Fra’s tweets of his nieces painting his back with neon polka dots and scribbles and whatnot a few days ago right?
Consider Courf inviting Ferre over to his parents house for dinner one night, and all his siblings and their spouses and kids are there as well, and Courf has barely taken a step inside before he’s surrounded by several nieces and a nephew or two just begging to let him be their canvas (they painted on him once after he showed them his tattoo, and ever since then they’ve looooved painting on him)
Courf quickly agrees and Ferre realizes what is happening a second too late. His mouth goes dry as he watches Courf take his shirt off, completely frozen in place.
And Ferre has to deal with a shirtless Courfeyrac for an entire hour. It doesn’t help that Courf absolutely adores the kids and he’s so great with them.
Ferre is practically swooning the whole time
“it will be remembered that she was more of a lark than a dove.”
