I will probably have to cancel something/take leave if we do it on the weekend (which is fine because MISERES) so yeah I’m basically at the more lead time the better. …also I have never been to a Broadway show and have no idea what is involved in getting tickets. Also there is one weekend in May where I will be at a house party all weekend but I don’t remember which one. (Have also still never seen les mis at all, lalalala, so this will exciting.)

110 plays

The current soundtrack of my life.

(It’s even better with the video synced in, though.)

So that thing that deadlyflan told me to tell the internet last night has gone slightly viral, by which I mean just under 2400 notes in just about 24 hours.I’m sorry if you didn’t already realize that I was exactly geeky enough to do this the minute I had a sufficiently popular post, but with the help of a spreadsheet and Google Tables, I have made a network graph of all the reblogs in the first 2000 notes.Thank you to lnich for reblogging, because gyzym reblogged it from dreadfulwanderings who reblogged it from perilousseas who got it from killerville who got it from dilithiumnips who got it from @raijumykaiju who got it from @dorianthewellendowed who got it from lucyliuism who got it from @rubato who got it from namingoflights who got it from @knightoftaurus who got it from hellotrickster who got it from @jerakeenc who got it from talitha78 who got it from lnich, and once gyzym got it there was no holding it back.

I do feel that fandom, in its distress over Bucky’s general existence, has neglected something very important:

BUCKY IS NOW WANDERING AROUND DC UNSUPERVISED AND CONFUSED

Does he figure out the SmarTrip machine?

Does he wait patiently for Silver Line trains?

Does he like cupcakes?

Does he get to visit the dinosaur part of the Natural History Museum before it closes for renovations?

THESE ARE THE IMPORTANT QUESTIONS

DOES HE REMEMBER TO CHECK FOR WEEKEND TRACK WORK

does he know the good times to go to the zoo

does he read Capital Weather Gang yet

who signed him up for a DC public library card

I feel this is relevant to melannen, bro-stoevsky, shewhowishes, and our post-Cap-2 discussion of Bucky wandering into a Ben & Jerry’s and staring into the distance with a slightly haunted expression while the poor girl behind the counter tries to ask him what kind of ice cream he wants. (They’re probably running a special Captain America themed flavor, too.)

"Excuse me," a woman said, putting her hand on the Winter Soldier’s elbow outside of the Ben and Jerry’s in Dupont, which was honoring free cone day. He almost dropped his ice cream in surprise, but held onto it. "Can you tell me how to get to the White House? I’m not sure if I should take the Metro to Elephant Plaza or Smithsonian. Do you know?" 

The Winter Soldier stared at her, so she pointed out the landmark, glittering in the sunlight at the other end of town. “I just need to get that way, to the White House.”

"That’s the United States Capitol," said the Winter Soldier. 

"Are you sure?"

"No," said the Winter Soldier, turning to leave with his ice cream.

He wasn’t sure of anything.

An hour later he found himself in Meridian Hill. He went into the park. His ice cream had melted on the aspirationally buff curves of his metal arm, and it was attracting bees. He found himself facing a tired-looking bronze and granite statue, also surrounded by bees due to the melting frappucino in spilled at the statue’s feet. 

BUCHANAN, said the inscription above the statue, and to one side, JAMES BUCHANAN OF PENNSYLVANIA.

The Winter Soldier felt a deep sense of loss, or discomfort, seeing those words. Something was missing from him as he was, taken or forgotten or lost, and thinking hard he identified it: the ice cream.

He needed a fresh ice cream. 

I already wrote the one where he gets a library card. (But Bro’s, of course, is better, because I do not actually live inside the Beltway.)

Important intelligence analysis

Headcanon: Abed only got his job at SHIELD as a spousal benefit when they recruited Troy for their gadgets division

Evidence, incontrovertible: When everything else in Fury’s car was broken, what was still 100% operational? THE AIR CONDITIONING.

Bunny, related: Abed meets Sam while visiting Troy in the hospital and explains to him, scene by scene, why he is definitely the lead in a romcom, not the sidekick in an action movie.

Here is something: Father Madeleine has taken to carrying a guinea-pig with him in his coat-pocket. He calls it Le Comte d’Barbarie. Sister Perpetue asked him if that was perhaps not too grand a name for such a small and humble creature, but he said he bought it from a small Savoyard who found that his marmot disliked it, and the Savoyard gave it the name. Perpetue asked him if he could not change its name, but he said that surely, having become accustomed to being a Comte, it would answer to no other name.

melannen wrote earlpig for the miseres exchange and it is beautiful and charming and packed with stealth feels and you should go and read it right now. run don’t walk
I was going to wait to link my miseres fic until I had, uh, made it better, but I can’t not link this art which Ireny made for it which is OMG AMAZING (and so is the glorious guinea pig art she created for Voksen in the exchange.)

Last year carmarthen set up a fic/art exchange for #lesmiseres that went really well, so I thought I’d get up another round, and well, here we are!

I haven’t had a chance to read any of the fics yet, except a way-too-quick-half-asleep skim of the one for me, but I know for a fact that there is SO MUCH GOOD FIC waiting for me! (And I got ROMAN AU POETRY from PLINY so I definitely won this round.)

and furthermore i get really fucking irritated at people who point at the situation he was forced into in breaking parole and becoming madeleine and call him dishonest, call him a liar and a cheat and focus attention on legal fraud and talk about how he remains a criminal and deserves to be brought to justice

the point of myriel’s enjoinder to become an honest man (etc) has nothing to do with the law of man. myriel wanted valjean to become not only spiritually but morally honest, and valjean did so; he had tried to live by the law of man in giving his passport where he went and being cheated and turned out for it; myriel gave him a second choice as well as a second chance. valjean’s becoming an honest man has less than nothing to do with “not lying about his name” and everything to do with keeping his promise to fantine and to cosette and to helping the poor and the hurt and the condemned even when it brings him into danger

Note to the fandom: at the time he told Valjean to become “an honest man”, Myriel was actively and brazenly embezzling 3,000 livres a year - about equivalent to Bahorel’s annual allowance, not factoring in inflation - to pay for a coach and horses that did not, in fact, exist.

…and now I’m not allowed to play anymore and have to go be an adult. But here are some important life lessons I have learned:
Grantaire and Marius actually interact really well and there should be more of that.
Things proceed a lot more smoothly if you pretend that “going upward” isn’t even a option.
Nothing screws up one’s plans for Valjean like an Unexpected Marius
The party doesn’t really start until Combeferre shows up.
Being unable to consistently tell my Amis apart still isn’t as much of problem as one might expect!
