Someone (I forget who, sorry) posted, “The blood of the martyrs watered the meadows of France.”
Their blood didn’t even get to water the meadows of France. Their blood was in the streets and had to be mopped up. Their deaths were for nothing and they didn’t even affect the grass and flowers.
In the epilogue, they sing, “It is the music of a people who are climbing to the light.” Heaven can be interpreted as a light. They are still going to heaven. And they will be forever, because they will forever remain at the barricades, a reminder of war. For Les Amis, heaven was a France made free of monarchy. They never got to see their heaven.
Anonymous said: hi, darlings! i was just wondering where suchbluesky/maddi got her red jacket for her amaaazing enjolras cosplay? because i'm cosplaying as him for a con at the end of the year ahaha. i may just have to improvise c: xxxxx
I got my jacket at a thrift shop, it was just a plain red wool blazer, and I trimmed it and hemmed it up and added buttons and such. Improvising with a preexisting jacket is probably the best way to go.
Best of luck and thank youuu! <3
Friendly reminder that mod A (suchbluesky) and I (suspenderlady) will be at Anime Boston this weekend and anyone who wants to is welcome to come find us and say hi ✿◕‿◕✿

“All right!” She said, “I’ll sell what’s left.”
The unfortunate creature became a woman of the streets.”
Éponine and Gavroche both died from painful gunshot wounds. Their parents survived. ✿◕‿◕✿
A reminder that in the brick, Javert litteraly screams Fantine to death ✿◕‿◕✿
"The little stranger did them the service of attracting the blows to herself; her children had only the caresses. Cosette could not stir without drawing down on herself a hailstorm of undeserved and severe chastisements."
