Quick speedpaint of Marius and Eponine. Was gonna draw Cosette too but I’m too tired.
WOW what an intense Eponine! HER EYES, I love her eyes! And all her sharp edges that still don’t take the softness out of her character completely but do shred it at the edges, agh, WHAT A GOOD EPONINE.
And oh, MARIUS. I’m going to assume he’s worried about his shoes. THEY’RE NOT THAT DUSTY, MARIUS.
Victoria wrote these perfect tags and I just had to illustrate them

People being angry about ~dem gays~ on Target’s Facebook.
I just want to give my two cents on this and tell you a story.
A couple weeks ago, I was hired at Target. I have a job at Target. Not a big deal right?
It is a big deal because i’m a transman.
It doesn’t take a genius to conclude that it’s hard for me, my brothers, and sisters to get a job. There are legal restraints regarding the job and if you don’t pass, it’s hard to be taken seriously at a job interview.
Right on the application, it asks what your preferred name is. It also asks if there is anything that target should know. I put the fact that I am a transman, expecting not to get a call because usually when you put that down, people will throw out the application. I got TWO interviews.
At the interview, they asked me about it. I told them I am on hormones and they told me that they didn’t care. Not in the sense that they don’t emotionally care, but that it didn’t matter. I was male and that’s all that mattered. They also told me that they give sex same couples benefits in states that do not recognize them as a married couple.
At my job orientation, I was not misgendered once. Even my supervisors who weren’t sure of my gender avoided pronoun use, which I found only happens when you’ve had pronoun training. They gave me a name tag with my preferred name and didn’t ask questions. I felt safe and respected, which is huge for a trans* person.
TLDR: Target is amazing not just for the LGB, but also the T. Shop there for the rest of your life.
Target are honestly doing retail so bloody right
modern Grantaire who can’t hold down a job until Bahorel finds out he can paint and introduces Grantaire to his favourite tattoo artist (modern Bahorel is covered in tattoos, some of which are quite bad, and Grantaire eventually manages to fix them for him and turn previous artists’ mistakes into flourishes and emblems) and Grantaire gets a job at the parlour and narrowly avoids becoming Johnny Truant
modern Grantaire who gets his first real flat that’s not co-owned by crack addicts and the Amis are so proud that the day he moves in he finds them already in his living room (“I just got my keys,” he complains, “how did you already -” and they all just point at Feuilly) and Jehan brings him a plant as a housewarming gift and Grantaire tries to take care of it, he really does, but of course he’s rubbish at plants and it dies and he pretends not to feel bad about it but really he does, so on his birthday they all buy him those miniature cacti that you couldn’t kill if you tried and then he has to pretend he isn’t grateful

This causes an autonomic nervous system shift from a sympathetic (fight or flight reaction) state to a parasympathetic response.
Use this for panic/anxiety attacks, exams, presentations.
So I bought this book because it actually produces some really great prompts. If you ever need any ideas for an au or something original holler at me I’ll dial you up one of these.
I want this.
Where can I get one
