Les Miserables reincarnation au:
Enjolras and Grantaire are reborn and finally given their chance at a life together - only, nothing is ever as simple as it appears, especially when you’re slowly having the face the truth that you and the love of your life (well, lives) are just not compatible…
This is it, what neither of them could have even dared dream about in their previous life almost two hundred years ago
Reborn in modern-day London, they meet during their first year of university. Eyes meet in a busy corridor, and in an instant it all comes flooding back - blood, gunfire, the boom of canons… and the final, lingering image of two hands clasped together, the first and last time they would ever touch during that first, brief lifetime
Things seem to be going perfectly at first - they’re together again, and that alone is more than either man could ever have dreamed. They trade lazy kisses on Enjolras’ bed, bodies entwined atop the sheets, and wonder how they got so lucky
It’s only a few months in when the cracks begin to show
Because, although their situation may be dramatically different, both men are still the same as they ever were. Enjolras’ activism has him continually working himself to a state of exhaustion, depriving himself of food and sleep, and Grantaire of his company. He was reborn as rich and privileged as he was before, and with that comes a gnawing sense of guilt which drives him to work harder still… only, doing so then comes with the additional guilt of knowing that he’s neglecting Grantaire
Likewise, Grantaire had always known that there are no miracle cures for the demons that have followed him from his previous lifetime into the next. Love certainly does not conquer all, not when drinking yourself into a stupour is the only thing that fills the emptiness in your chest that refuses to go away. He’d always secretly thought that hollow could be filled by Enjolras’ love, like some sort of fairytale, miracle cure, but he had been so wrong. And when his lover is away, Grantaire drinks even more than before. He doesn’t tell him, of course he doesn’t, but the blond man always seems to know
And so, not quite a year after they were reunited, it all comes crashing down. Too many arguments, too many tears, too many nights on one side of an empty bed. Grantaire feels like a burden, and Enjolras is constantly torn up with guilt knowing that he can’t give the other man everything that he needs
And then, one calm, October morning, Grantaire packs a bag and leaves, careful not to awaken the other man. He kisses Enjolras’ forehead before he goes, takes one last look at his sleeping lover before the tears cloud his vision completely
Enjolras wakes up 2 hours later, dread rising in his stomach when he takes in the empty bed and the scrap of paper left on the bedside table
All it says is “I’m sorry”

MYTHOLOGY MEME / (2/2) Mythological Objects
According to Greek mythology, Ariadne was willing to help Theseus find his way out of the Labyrinth. In exchange Theseus promised to marry her and take her back to Athens. Ariadne gave him a BALL OF THREAD and told him to secure one end at the entrance to the Labyrinth. He could then unravel the ball as he made his way. By following the thread Theseus would be able to find the way back to the entrance.
Theseus slowly made his way through the Labyrinth, unravelling the ball as he went. He encountered the Minotaur, and after a struggle slew the beast. Together with the others he followed the thread back to the entrance and out of the Labyrinth.
GUYS LAST NIGHT’S EPISODE DROPPED TO 2.64 MILLION. THIS IS NOT GOOD. I DON’T KNOW WHAT ELSE TO DO. THE CHANCES OF SEASON 3 ARE GETTING DIMMER, AT LEAST ON NBC. DO WHAT YOU CAN. GET MORE VIEWERS. IF YOU MISS AN EPISODE GO TO NBC.COM OR HULU. PLEASE.
Guys, this is SO BAD.The premier episode started with 3.27 million viewers. This means that Hannibal’s ratings has dropped by .81 MILLION VIEWERS. To put this in perspective, Blue Bloods, a very popular show that has the same air slot as Hannibal, averages 11.87 million viewers per episode!
The first season of Hannibal averaged around 4.36 million viewers and it was almost cancelled because of it. Imagine what’s going to happen if 2.64 million becomes the norm; Hannibal will be cancelled.
Hannibal has an amazing cast and we all love seeing their tweets and involvement with tumblr. This is because they’re funny, kind, and care about the fans. However, they are also doing this because they are desperate to get more viewers. They know that the internet is a powerful tool, and they’re reaching out to as many people as they can.
Even if you don’t watch Hannibal, YOU CAN HELP. As stated in the original post, you can go onto Hulu and watch it. But you can also go to to NBC’s website, where you can find »»>FULL EPISODES«« without any kind of subscription.
The best part is that you don’t even have to watch the episodes! If Hannibal isn’t your cup of tea, all you have to do is mute it, hit play, minimize the window, and go about you business.
For the love of all that is holy, PLEASE SAVE OUR SHOW. You’ve seen how passionate we are about this masterpiece on tumblr. We’re invested in these characters, their stories, and everyone involved.
Please. This is huge for the fans who have read the books and for those who haven’t. Just go to the website.
I can’t deal without this.

Feminism is having a wardrobe malfunction.
Does your brand of feminism remove barriers for women, or simply move them around? Does is expand options for women, or does it just shift them? You don’t liberate women by forcing them to choose option B instead of option A. What is comfortable for you might not be comfortable for someone else, and it’s entirely possible that what you see as oppressive, other women find comfortable or even downright liberating.
Before you think the girl in the middle is a strawman, let me tell you I used to be her, back in my misguided youth. I considered myself the standard to which other people should adhere. But that was stupid. It’s not up to me to tell people how to dress, and it’s much nicer to let everyone choose for themselves.
Some women would feel naked without a veil. Some women would find it restrictive. Some women would feel restricted by a bra. Some women would feel naked without one. Some women would feel restricted by a tight corset. Others love them. Some wear lots of clothes with a corset. Some only wear the corset and nothing else. What makes any article of clothing oppressive is someone forcing you to wear it. And it’s just as oppressive to force someone not to wear something that they want to wear.
