Bakura’s Ryou impression is years in the making; starting from the very first morning that his host woke up with the Ring on his chest, having forgotten to take it off the night before. His eyes are Bakura’s eyes, and he studies how his hands move, how he takes two minutes to brush his teeth and less than one to brush his hair, how he steps casually into too-big shoes and somehow runs to school without falling down.
There’s something of an apology in everything Ryou does, and it takes him a very, very long time to learn how to mimic something he could never feel.
Sometimes, he takes the body for a drive in the instant that his host is between sleeping and waking, falling asleep at his workdesk with tools and woodshavings all around him. When Bakura takes control, he finds the weaknesses in the figurine’s design, and fixes them.
He doesn’t always go out. But when he does, it’s often at night.
At sunset he watches old men in the park teach younger men how to fight the air, how to dance and dodge imaginary strikes, and the way they move reminds him of something, but he doesn’t know what.
After everything is closed he walks through alleys that are completely dark and imagines melting into them with the part of himself that does remember —- and he’s angriest then. Walking through walls should be easier, but he is too solid now. It’s these times when he remembers, too, that his name isn’t Bakura at all.
1. Thenardier sometimes walks like this.
2. After every episode, there is a preview for the next. The people who talk through these previews are little shits.
3. Little Cosette, Azelma and Eponine are adorable.
4. Enjolras is an inspiration.
5. Quality moments of classic Pontmercy.
6. Courfeyrac’s lack of boundaries.
7. ExR, baby.
8. The insightful introspection of the main characters.
9. There are some communication breakdowns when it comes to French names.
If that hasn’t convinced you, consider the following: Gavroche has a dog sidekick (that’s bigger than him) for some reason, you get to see Enjolras’ reaction to fangirls, Montparnasse is involved, and, oh yeah, it’s Les Mis.
I just realized how fucking disgusting it is that it’s considered healthy and normal for teenage boys to eat everything ever yet teenage girls are obviously also growing but are fucking dieting all the time and shamed for eating while they’re growingShit
Jesus was a homeless Palestinian anarchist who held protests at oppressive churches, advocated for universal health care and redistribution of wealth, before being arrested for terrorism, tortured and executed for crimes against the state, now go ahead and explain to me why he’d vote conservative. I’ll wait.
If you say E/R isn’t canon three times into a mirror, George Blagden will come to your house and explain it to you in enthusiastic detail, including diagrams, quotes, songs, fanart, and calligraphy. Then he will wrap you up in a blanket of newfound understand and leave
