hello! i am doing a thing!
as some of you might know, may day (may 1st) and the month of may in general is the celebration of Mary in catholic tradition (likely because of her conflation with Flora, the roman goddess of flowers and spring. floralia, the festival in Flora’s honor, usually happened in may).
so in honor of Our Lady of Perpetual Help, i’d like to do a money give away thing for trans women and amab trans folk.
if you would like to be entered into a drawing to receive $1,000 for help with life or transition or health stuff or whatever, please send me an ask so i can have your URL. i will enter all names into a virtual hat and the person whose name i pick on may day will get the monies. you must have a pay pal set up bc i am bad at mailing things!
i was thinking about doing a thing where if you are a woc, or disabled, etc etc, you could get your name into the hat more times? but i also don’t want to be the one to judge other people’s oppressions, so feedback on whether or not i should do that is desired.
pls spread the word by reblogging.
it’s really not a coincidence that winter soldier is being talked about as the best marvel movie yet
when you give women and poc the same importance and development as you do your white males, amazing things happen
#like you would NOT have this movie without natasha sam maria and nick#chris sebastian and redford were amazing in it but to have women and poc be PIVOTAL to the plot#and be actual fleshed out important characters is just#!!!!!! idek how to describe it#but it also makes me sad because this movie PROVED that it’s totally possible to have more diversity#it’s just that people aren’t willing to include it in their films
a sceptic adhering to a believer is as simple as the law of complementary colours
Some fem!ExR sketches I did over the past few days, mostly because I missed drawing their canon era fem selves, but also to practice and play around with different body types.
how do other white people manage to feel so persecuted on tumblr that they need to make a fucking half-assed photoset about it on the daily like the worst i’ve ever seen is ‘why can’t white people handle spicy food’ and i just read it like ‘yeah. yeah you’re right. i’m white and i buy mild salsa. you got me’
Laverne Cox’s mother, Gloria, on her advice for parents of LGBTQ children.When asked what it has been like for her, Gloria responded, “Understanding, and praying, and talking, and continuing to talk. And, most of all, love.”
As for her advice to parents of LGBTQ children, Gloria said, "Listen. Listen to your children, take note of actions, and talk. Open dialogue…that’s the most important thing."
I could have used this information over the last 29 years of my god damn life
My mom taught me to pack like this and she gets mad when I come to visit and sees that I don’t use it.
I need to remember this for uniforms.
Oh my god, I am learning this ASAP. HOW DID I NOT KNOW OF THIS BEFORE?!
Boost it, electrocute it, rocketship it

Can we please not let that happen, thanks
/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)
Fantine as a Wilis
The Wilis are the spirits of women jilted by their lovers. They haunt the forest and seek revenge on any man they encounter, forcing their victims to dance until they die of exhaustion.
Come and dance, Tholomyes.

As we start round 4, I just want to remind you all that you guys can leave comments, questions, ideas, and concerns right here!!
Also, something we had started doing at the beginning was compiling scripts for accessibility. Due to some initial disorganization, we’ve had trouble getting the scripts together for rounds 2 and 3, but because of our new organizational system, it will be super simple from now on to compile the scripts! You can find scripts for round 4 right here, although you will only be able to see scripts of videos that have already been published.
Next, I know there was an problem with the editing on the Enjolras video, as the ending doubles for some people, and I am currently working to resolve that issue.
Lastly, as some of you know, I am going to be working up in the mountains of Colorado this summer as a camp counselor, and therefor I will not be able to help out much with LAV. I would like to find an assistant to help Chey manage the project from June 6th until August 12th. For this position, I would prefer if the individual is organized, dedicated, and also is someone who is very good at responding promptly. Editing (both video and script) experience is a plus but not necessary. If you think you may be right for this opportunity, please send me an email at email@example.com with your name, preferred pronouns, url, and a short paragraph saying why you would be interested in helping and why you think you are right for the job. Also, I would prefer if the individual is not one of the actors, unless they are not on any writing teams besides their own.
Thank you all so much for being so very supporting of this project!!!!
