Gavroche to Bahorel

plinytheyounger:

for pilferingapples

Cursed name of a dog! That’s just the thing, dear brother
in arms; I’ll learn Latin from you, then, and no other,
and when to boil a pretty egg, and dash a dray right over,
and keep the petty shopkeepers in a fine lather -
O I’ve stomach enough, but I can like your pluck
and join you in your stanchion soon enough.
If I’d grown up it’s dearth or gallows
since it’s amazing what the Church can swallow,
but as it is, ignored by priest and politician,
let’s lie together in the grave of all ambition,
and raise a protest with the paving-stones
a whistled song, a flag, a satire, and our brave bones:
dear mother Paris is dressed up like Augustus’ Rome
and père nor Pear won’t offer me a home

Draw a character/characters in another time period, not modern or canon

whoa gosh better late than never, finally have some time to get some drawing did.
CRUSADES AU : the amis run a neutral/pacifist field hospital.
Prouvaire and Joly are patching up Bahorel, who is maybe not so much a pacifist,  while enjolras rails against the tyranny of popes and kings, combeferre and courfeyrac have philosophical discussions and grantaire huffs away at his pipe.

"I love science, and it pains me to think that so many are terrified of the subject or feel that choosing science means you cannot also choose compassion, or the arts, or be awed by nature. Science is not meant to cure us of mystery, but to reinvent and reinvigorate it."

— Robert M. Sapolsky (via pridejoyetc)

carmarthenfan:

berrysphase replied to your photo “carmarthen: why did pliny prompt me cross-dressing montparnasse and…”

….hOKAY this has actually made me interested in Montparnasse.

muwaha…ha? I feel like I should be keeping score or something. :>

But I actually think fem!Montparnasse would raise some interesting questions. Still be a horrible person, of course, but situated slightly differently…

Montparnasse inceptor! What a fandom distinction. Go Car! Uh.

But yes, fem!Montparnasse is still enormously awful but an awful that’s much more interesting to me, especially in context with the rest of the female characters in the book; it’s a recognizable response to adversity that points up the huge lacunae in the variety that Hugo shows.

This was just too cool to not reblog.
Also, if you haven’t already, check out the character profile for Li Shang. He’s totally bi/pan, you know.
