      No, I think the Crucifixion will happen in season 5. Dunno what'll happen then.

      Nah, it’s been confirmed that that is season six and then season seven is his resurrection.

      I write drama and sadness to a ten as much as I can while not going into depression, I’m down.

  6. Wait I just realized my member title goes perfectly with my username. That was not intentional.

  7. I LIKE YOUR MEMBER TITLE

      Thank you.

      What can I say more?

  8. Is your Ookla Title by chance referring to the warm-up song/round that goes like

    "Black socks, they never get dirty

    The longer you wear them

    The blacker they get

    Sometimes I think I might wash them 

    But something keeps telling me

    'Don't wash them yet

    Not yet

    Not yet

    Not yet

    Not yet

    Not yet'"?

    1. Thaidakar the Ghostblood

      Thaidakar the Ghostblood

      that would've been a smart reference, but no.

      It's a reference to a gag in an rp with one of my ocs and one of @Ookla the Yellow Sock's ocs. They were trying to insult each other and Panda's called mine a black sock and then mine called hers a yellowed sock.

      It was so funny that we kept on referencing it again and again and again.

    2. SmilingPanda19

      SmilingPanda19

      Of course Mr. Black Sock 

  9. I know you're wondering.

    My display name is a Les Mis reference. Joly is one of the Friends of the ABC. His nickname is Jolllly, so that he may fly away on his four L's. Ailes, I believe? is French for wings. L's, ailes. Fly away on L's, fly away on wings.

    Also I drew Gavroche! Daniel Huttlestone's Gavroche. Yeah, he looks too sad. Gavroche is a happy person (even though he has absolutely no reason to be) but I was going off a reference picture where he's kind of scowling so here we are.

      Don't you fret, M'siuer Marius, I don't feel any pain! 

      T-T

  10. So
    I finished Les Mis, the unabridged version. Skipping the random-unrelated-to-the-plot parts.
    Thoughts:

    Spoiler

    I don't know if I can forgive Marius for ruining the last years of Valjean's life! He pushed him away the year he was dying. It made the ending hurt a lot more! Valjean was miserable and lonely for the last months of his life! And they only came to see him in the last few minutes. I don't know if I can consider that ending fully bittersweet, it's just kind of bitter! Although that's also partly Valjean's fault for saying "I'm a convict" but not saying "I've changed and besides all I did was steal some bread!!" It just... hurt. I cried. A lot. Why did Valjean push himself away from the only person he loved?? Also! Marius, in the book, didn't really seem to mind that all his friends were dead. This bothers me.
    If Les Mis is Cinderella, Jean Valjean is Cosette's fairy godmother. It's funny that Les Mis is a serious book about sad people's sad lives, but then there's a random Disney love story. It cracks me up how the narrator never refers to him as "Valjean" or "Jean". He is Jean Valjean EVERY time he's mentioned. "Jean Valjean did this, Jean Valjean did that." Also I love Cosette and Valjean's relationship, it's the sweetest thing ever.
    OH!! My favorite character! Maybe! If it's not Valjean. Valjean kind of represents the struggle in all of us for doing what's right versus what's easy, and he just keeps doing the SUPER HARD THING because it's right. And I really love him. But I'm also kind of mad at him for not standing up for himself.
    So here's my fave, maybe. 
    GAVROCHE!
    He's so snarky and sarcastic! But he's so sweet, anyway! I love him. Both book him and musical him(although book Gavroche is also pretty musical. Didn't expect him to die singing a song in the book too.
    This great little soul had taken flight...

      I'm reading the book right now and came across the SADDEST quote: 

      "It was harrowing to see the poor child, in winter, not yet six years old, shivering under the tatters of what was once a calico dress, sweeping the street before daylight with an enormous broom in her little red hands and tears in her large eyes.

      In the neighborhood she was called the Lark. People like figurative names and were happy to give a nickname to this child, no larger than a bird, trembling, frightened, and shivering, first to wake every morning in the house and the village, always in the street or the in the fields before dawn. 

      Except that the poor lark never sang."

      I KNOW ITS HEARTBREAKING!!

      There’s one about Fantine that I love, one sec lemme see if I can find it.

       

  12. Eddie Redmayne deserves twenty-four thousand, six hundred and one Oscars. All I see for Oscars, though is Anne Hathaway, which I find strange because I think Empty Chairs at Empty Tables is far more soul-crushing and heart-shattering than I Dreamed a Dream.

    In other words, I had some friends over to watch Les Mis. A group hug was necessary at the end.

  15. My new member title named after a guy who cheered me in a Cross Country race by saying my member title while holding a stuffed elephant. It was really amazing. All the other XC people, are there any other random cheers you've gotten?

    Also. 

    That hill.

    Was.

    BRUTAL.

    It was weirdly terraced? So it had flat and then really steep parts. Was painful.

    I made some shoes. Actually I didn't make them, I decorated them. I'm not a cobbler.
    ANYWAY! They're super nerdy and suited exactly to my unique taste and I'm so happy.

      I read "and rain will make the flowers grow" and almost started crying. Les mis has way too much of an effect on me.

      Cobblers don't make shoes either. ;) They mend them. Someone who makes shoes is, disappointingly, simply known as a shoemaker.
