friends turned lovers is literally my favorite trope - like, all other tropes can go home.
give me shared inside jokes that date back to wayyyyy before a first kiss was ever shared. give me living together with separate bedrooms until one of them gradually becomes unnecessary. give me confused reactions from people who already assumed the two of them were dating. give me arguments over what counts as an anniversary because should we start at the date we met or the date we became friends or the date we got over our stupid selves and finally started kissing.
give me stories that show the line between friends and lovers is a really, really thin one - that appreciating the friendship that two characters share doesn’t mean you can’t ship them really damn hard too. that you can keep all the awesome friends-being-assholes-to-each-other stuff and add on all the shippy stuff to get something extra special awesome.
give me all of that.
L’avertisseur de police / Police signal posts.
Les avertisseurs de police sont apparus en 1928 et avaient la même fonction que les cabines de police britanniques, aujourd’hui un peu plus connues. La population pouvait les utiliser pour contacter le commissariat le plus proche 24h sur 24. Celui-ci se trouve au Musée de la Préfecture de Police.
Police signal posts, the French answer to the more famous British police boxes, appeared in 1928. They could be used 24/7 to contact the nearest police station. This one can be seen at the museum of police history: Musée de la Préfecture de Police.

► Les Mis Greek Gods AU || Enjolras as Apollo
↪ GOD OF PROPHECY, HEALING, PLAGUE, MUSIC, POETRY AND ARCHERY“O Delion king, whose light-producing eye views all within, and all beneath the sky; whose locks are gold, whose oracles are sure, who omens good revealest, and precepts pure; hear me entreating for he human kind, hear, and be present with benignant mind; for thou surveyest this boundless aither all, and every part of this terrestrial ball abundant, blessed; and thy piercing sight extends beneath the gloomy, silent night; Beyond the darkness, starry-eyed, profound, the table roots, deep-fixed by thee, are found. The world’s wide bounds, all-flourishing, are thine, thyself of all the source and end divine. ‘Tis thine all nature’s music to inspire with various-sounding, harmonious lyre: now the last string thou tunest to sweet accord, divinely warbling, now the highest chord; the immortal golden lyre, now touched by thee, responsive yields a Dorian melody.”
( Orphic Hymn 33 to Apollo )
► Les Mis Greek Gods AU || Grantaire as Dionysus
↪ GOD OF WINE, VEGETATION, PLEASURE, AND FESTIVITY
"Liknitos Dionysos, bearer of the vine, thee I invoke to bless these rites divine: florid and gay, of Nymphai the blossom bright, and of fair Aphrodite, Goddess of delight. ‘Tis thine mad footsteps with mad Nymphai to beat, dancing through groves with lightly leaping feet: from Zeus’ high counsels nursed by Persephoneia, and born the dread of all the powers divine. Come, blessed God, regard thy suppliant’s voice, propitious come, and in these rites rejoice."
( Orphic Hymn 45 to Dionysus )
(✿ﾉ◡‿◡)ﾉ *:･ﾟ✧*:･ﾟ✧ reminder that if u can’t get out of bed today that’s okay and if u feel like crying on public transportation that’s okay and if u got a bad mark on a test that’s okay because there are still so many forests to explore and cities to get lost in and dogs to pet and u are only a small star in a big universe and u are doing so well
I feel the need to sing the instrumentals of a song as much as I feel the need to sing the lyrics.
if you don’t think grantaire would melt every time he’d feel enjolras smiling into one of their kisses then you’re wrong
