(703): you don’t understand, he speaks spanish and is tall. i have to do him.
The worst thing about musicals is not being able to choose who you want to sing along with.
Do I sing along with Gabe or his dad?
Do I sing Roger or Mark?
Am I a Raoul or a Phantom today?
IT IS EITHER VALJEAN OR JAVERT
Far too often, I’ve heard radical queers and feminists, in their hipster garb, talking their academic jargon about checking one’s privilege and being accountable, and in the same breath mocking poor people. It’s not always explicit….
if I see one more friendzone joke in relation to Dany’s words to Jorah in 4x3, istg I’m going to scream.
Jorah isn’t doing the things he’s doing so that Dany will love him. As I’ve pointed out before, he was teaching her…

for those of you who speak french, i just came across the most incredible site, which allows you to see the evolution of les misérables throughout the composition process.
first, it provides full & downloadable pdf versions of the brick in three stages of completion:
- the first draft, before any corrections or additions (“Rédaction(s) initiale(s)”)
- the 1848 draft, known as les misères, which hugo then put aside for more than a decade (”Les Misères”)
- the final, “established” text of the novel (Les Misérables)
as if that weren’t cool enough, there’s also a function that allows you to see what hugo changed from version to version, as well as compare chapters across all three editions. for example, here’s "un groupe qui a failli devenir historique" ("a group that barely missed becoming historic"), featuring “thomas,” aka, marius’s original name in hugo’s first draft:
i’m sure the old school brick fans already know about this site, but i thought it wouldn’t hurt to share. i hope you guys find it as awesome as i do!
WOW what a great resource! Thank you so much for sharing!
"Thought I’d stay away from him and worship him from afar."

"THIS PICTURE WILL NOT CHANGE THE WORLD, BUT I STILL NEED FEMINISM AND I’M GOING TO REALLY, REALLY TELL YOU WHY":
-Because I got called a whore for wearing a short plaid skirt when I was 10
-and because when Nujood Ali from Yemen was 10 she got divorced
-Because black girls’ names became my classmates’ favorite “joke” when I was 11
-and because when an 11-year-old girl in Texas was raped by 18 men the New York Times wrote of how the girl “dressed older than her age”
-Because I started counting calories when I was 14
-and because when Malala Yousafzai was 14 she was shot in the head for trying to go to school
-Because I heard a boy greet a girl with “hey slut” today at age 16
-and because when a 16-year-old girl in Steubenville, Ohio was filmed being raped by two boys at a party while unconscious the CNN reporters talked about how tragic it was because the rapists had such bright futures as athletes
-Because I will have to watch my drink at all bars and parties when I am 22
-and because when CeCe McDonald was 22 she was sentenced to 41 months in prison for defending herself against a man who screamed transphobic, racist insults at her and then slashed her face with a bottle
-Because no matter what age I am the biggest threat to men will still be heart disease, and the biggest threat to women will still be men.
-Because it is not just about me, because it is not just about anger, because it is not just a JOKE, because it is not just about “hating men,” because it is not just about girls with vaginas, because it is not just about ending “slut”, because it is not just about white straight girls in Rookie magazine, because it is not just about writing on backs, because it is not just about the fact that gay men are “fags” but lesbians are “hot,” because it is not just about pictures of thin white girls being the only google image results for the search phrase “beautiful women”, because it is not just about writing signs, because it is not just about what she was wearing or how many times she said yes before she changed her answer to no, because misogyny is not just about one thing and feminism is not just about one thing and it is not just “a trend” and it will not “happen” in just one way.
-And because yes. It is about equality for EVERYONE, but first and foremost it needs to be about equality for girls, because they are not treated equally to men, in every single sense, and you are not going to take feminism away from me and call me bossy/hostile/aggressive and make this about yourself or make it into a joke, because truth be told, I’m not joking and I’m tired of explaining. If you want to call yourself a feminist, you work hard to spread feminism, you do not turn this into a contest of whose struggle is greater and constantly demand to know what you can get out of feminism personally. Feminism is not just about you, or me, it is about everyone. If you’re male and you’re tired of men being stereotyped as hyper-masculine, soulless, sexist, inherent leader-tyrant creatures, then go out and prove the patriarchy wrong and fight for girls, like someone with a soul who believes in equality would. Then, yes, feminism will be about everyone.
