So there seems to be a giant Les Mis Fandom Artists collab going around, which is amazing and awesome and wow, BEST FANDOM EVER, right? And I was sitting here going, man, I wish I could draw so I could participate, and then I thought, wait.
Why couldn’t the writers of fandom do a united…
I’d certainly be happy to try, if others wanted to. Maybe it would make me better at this whole Tumblr thing…
The next chapter of “Dreamers in the Shadows” is out for anyone who’s interested. Sorry for the delay; real life got a little hard for a bit. In this chapter, more E/R, more shadow, and more Musichetta!
Dreamers Chapter 24
Many people in the fandom seem to make Courfeyrac consistently bisexual or similar. In Amis pairings, it’s usually him or Enjolras who get paired up with another Ami. Marius/Courfeyrac or Combeferre/Courfeyrac or Enjolras/Courfeyrac are pretty popular, especially the former.
It amuses me because…
Canonically, yes, he’s probably pretty straight. He’s also one of the Amis who’s the most physical, though, so far as touching other people go, and in a more open society I could easily see him being at least bi-curious. I wouldn’t ever complain about people writing more bi/pansexual characters, though, because yay bi representation with a cool character. (I’m also someone who likes to screw with the Amis sexuality at times, though, and sometimes disassociate it from personality because that’s how it is in Real Life.)
It is kind of funny that fandom’s very convinced Courfeyrac is all about sex when he’s the one talking politics in the corner with his asexual chief and education-obsessed guide while the others chat about mistresses and plays and non-politics stuff… Really, being very loving and physical doesn’t make one all about sex. (Liking to rant about politics more than about mistresses also doesn’t negate his having a good sex drive, but nuances, fandom, you can find them!)

This is amazing and I want to play. Why yes, merchandizing does work on me, even though I should know better.

Life is looking better.
What a good set of photos.
I love the pictures you find and post.
Also, really starting to get excited about the new series. And the movie. I really need the movie.
GUYS GUYS I’M BACK I’M BACK.
Well, I’m mostly back. Thesis due in five days, so I probably won’t be meta’ing an epic meta or Brick!clubbing quite yet, but I won’t be completely MIA. And, to make up for it, I ficced!
According to my “what do you guys want me to drabble about” poll, aMarguerite wanted bini and everyone wanted cuddles (you guys, thank you, thank you), so, have some bini cuddles. More 100-follower-celebration-drabbles to come.
EDIT: HAHA OKAY so I did not realize how long this was, you are right folks, this is not a drabble. I CANNOT SHUT UP SORRY I FULL-LENGTH FICCED WHEN I WAS SUPPOSED TO BE DRABBLING.
Title: Lend Me Your Wings (And I’ll Soar)
Characters: Joly, Bossuet (appearances from Musichetta, Bahorel, Jehan, and Grantaire?)
Summary: “Joly had not smiled in hours, and Bossuet ached for it.”
This is absolutely adorable. I have a very soft spot for traumatized-doctor Joly fic (…it’s a professional sympathy thing), and this was beautiful. I love Bossuet’s focus on Joly smiling, his sorrow when it isn’t happening and his absolute joy when he manages to make it happen. I love Bossuet and Musichetta taking care of Joly, cleaning him up after what happened. And I adore your Bahorel and Jehan playing off each other, Jehan begging Bahorel to dance to with him. That entire exchange just made me grin. Thanks for writing and sharing!
I’m pretty sure Courfeyrac gives the Best hugs.
Because there is some tension in the fandom and myself and tumblr user PilferingApples have instigated a hug party.
We should all draw hugs.
They fix everything.
I don’t know if I chose the right or the wrong time to try my toes in fandom again—tension scares me into hiding, but hug party! I firmly approve of all hugging. This is lovely. Combeferre’s little smile is so charming, and I love the quietness to Courfeyrac’s expression, at odds with the intensity of the rest of the hug.
I could polish this for another hour, but it’s EMERGENCY HUG PARTY over here so here we go, sketch lines intact. Anyone who thinks I somehow have smooth work from the start, well, this is my usual 2/3 done— not so slick! But I hope the gestures are clear?
More maybe? Y/N? Miki, you still around on this?
Beautiful Trio picture! I love how boisterous your Courfeyrac is, pulling them closer together, and how content Enjolras and Combeferre look. Even your sketchy art is gorgeous!
