1ST COMMISSION FINALLY DONE. (x)
I hope I didn’t frick up these designs, I feel like I did.
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA THIS IS SUPER CUTE, I LOVE IT!!!! THANK YOU!!!
*w* D’awww the little Otachi tattoo peeling off and looking at Hermann is sooooo adorable!!!
There was a study done where they got a man to harass a woman in the park
and then they did it the other way around.
Several stopped the man but they let the woman slap and scream
and yank his hair.
They asked a professional who concluded that compared to men,
women aren’t seen as enough to be a threat.
My friend’s principal from three years ago
took his kids and ran
because he kept showing up to work
with bruises put there weekly by his loving wife
and everyone told him to take it like a man.
Last week I listened as a guy laughed off the idea
that a woman could violate him
and I thought of an interview on a news show
where they showed a boy who flinched inwards
every time a girl touched him
because of the exact reason the guy laughed off.
When compared to men,
Women aren’t seen as a threat
so men feel free to take whatever they like.
Women aren’t seen as a threat
so no one takes men seriously
when a woman
breaks them open.
/screams into her hands/ Enjolras
If you don’t watch Enjolras’s videos and then feel a rush of passion, hope, faith, and love well I don’t know what to say, because it’s not only the words she says (although it does count a lot, obviously) it’s the way she means them, and it’s the way she looks at you like she wants you to understand because she knows you can and and.
The thing with LAV is that they’re doing more than movies or tv series could ever do in some way with some of our favourite characters. In a movie/tv show, those people are still very much characters, and chances are that if they were minor in the first place, they won’t have much importance either in the story told on screen. That’s why fanfiction is already a step ahead - you have so many wonderful stories exploring Les Amis’s personalities, goals, ambitions, backstories, etc. But LAV is somehow even more
LAV is (to a certain extent of course) bringing those characters to life. You can interact with them (via blogs or comments). You can “know” them, again to a certain extent, like you would a real person because everything they say, everything they talk about, is real. They talk about life like any other vloggers. But they’re not, because they’re also Les Amis, created by Victor Hugo.
So what happens is that you have those wonderful characters, and LAV is like "let’s give them depth and backstories and clear emotions, let’s re-created them all over again but in our modern world, and prove that they’re still necessary." and it works. (mostly because the world actually do need more people like les amis i think)
I’m saying all this because Enjolras is my favourite character of the novel, and somehow LAV!Enjolras has become my favourite character of this project, because LAV characterization of Enjolras is perfect (or, at least, exactly like I envision it) and with the added bonus that I can hear and see Enjolras’s passion on screen, the way it’s sometimes hard to in the novel. I can’t really identify with book!Enjolras because we have nothing in common apart from the “being French” part. Not that I can, really, with LAV!Enjolras but she feels more real anyway, she feels like someone I’d like to know, someone who inspires me.
Anyway. I just.
Really love LAV. um.
(seriously go watch their videos, all of them, they’re brilliant)
Great job with the new Enjolras video, guys. ( more than great job with the not-so-subtle answer to R’s last video)

If you write just about one type of person, not only is that boring, not only does that deprive people of other points of view, it is also just false. It’s not what the world looks like. You should try to write about the world that’s there, because that’s the interesting one.

ImprovedAltered version of this post because people kept commenting that they were surprised it didn’t end with “old as balls.”
(pitched to different “gender”)
Sorry for low-tier quality, I just really wanted to hear what this would sound like.
Believe me when I say, these are the BEST Muppet bloopers ever. Please, please WATCH. You get to watch Frank Oz’s sanity slowly slip away. Priceless.
“Hubba wah?! HUBBA HUBBA HUBBA WAH?! Hubba WAH?!?”
Literally the GREATEST THING I have ever seen! Oh my God, the fact that they stayed in character and kept puppeteering the whole time. I’M CRYING!
The fact that this video now has 8,000+ notes makes me so damn happy.
Praise jesus someone posted this— they’re literally the best. It’s even funnier when you know what Ma’s voice ACTUALLY sounds like in the movie and then you hear Frank Oz doing essentially a scratchtape version of it for the actual filming.
