They toned the politics of Les Mis way down when they translated it into English, holy crap. I mean, I knew they had, but wow. The English version doesn’t have lines like, “ceux qui on le gateaux ne le partagent avec personne/il vaut mieux le prendre plutot d’attendre qu’ils en donnent” (those who have the cake share it with no one/better to take it rather than wait for them to give some) or really explicit mentions of revolution. The English contents itself with “something’s gotta happen or something’s gotta give” which is not at all the same as the ‘we need revolution now, dammit’ sentiment of the French version. (See also: “quant y’a pas d’argent/faut pas faire d’enfants/enfants orphelin le monde entier républicain” ‘when there’s no money/can’t be having kids/orphaned children make the whole world republican’.)

Not that I’m pointing fingers, but the French does make it quite clear that the Amis are far from the only ones into this whole revolution thing…

(It also has one of my favorite lines ever: “Heureusement que dans les gens de la haut/il y en a un qui regarde en bas./On a le general Lamarque/qui parle un peu de nous parfois” (Thankfully among the men on high/there’s one who does look down./We have the general Lamarque/who talks a bit about us sometimes.))

THIS IS WHAT I WANT IN THE MUSICAL NOOOOOWWWWW
I mean I do love the musical as it is for all I complain but as you’ve said, I swear it’s like they’re TRYING to make the revolution AND the Revolution not matter and they are one of the bookending THEMES in the whole story  and I WANT THESE LYRICS BACK SOMEHOW, basically.

(gah the bit about Lamarque! How gorgeous!)

Always my captain

So much of science fiction is paradoxically afraid of technology and change; it’s a genre full of cautionary tales about the way that societal trend X or technology Y (or technology-related societal trend Z) is going to destroy us or bring out the worst in us. And those are worthwhile stories, of course, but I find ST:TOS so refreshing because it really seems to believe that we can be better, that we can improve the world instead of ruining it, and that technology can help us do that.

We all know that the terrible “Enjolras is a robot who doesn’t experience human emotion” trope is a load of nonsense.  But consider the absolute, radical opposite.  Enjolras who feels emotion so strongly and so passionately, whose compassion for the people and love just love is the center of his being, whose desire for revolution—the sum of his love, of course—is both an intellectual conclusion and an almost visceral need for justice, for change.

I read this months ago, and I just read parts of it again because I don’t actually think I can handle the whole thing right now it’s too much but I need this back on my blog because I want everyone to read it I really do.

Warm-up for commissions. I have three to go, and a character design and… omg I have an essay to write and my head hurts @_@
Have a pretty Enjolras just because. 

Oh, this IS a pretty Enjolras, and what a fantastically intense expression! Has he got superpowers, or is that just the usual Enjolras Look?:D

People who hate Harry Potter missed the a giant part of the story. Despite being abused by his aunt, uncle and cousin his whole life Harry was kind, compassionate, loyal, protective and honest. He defended those who needed it and stood up to those who deserved it. He didn’t become bitter or hateful. And he spent his life trying to protect others. You can’t hate him because people chose to stand by him even if it meant they’d die. He didn’t want that, he wanted everyone to live even if it meant he couldn’t anymore.

It’s because he suffered PTSD in book 5 and was mistaken for a whinny angsty teen.
