For my Canadians
Douglas Adams is the best when it comes to describe characters
they need to teach classes on Douglas Adams analogies okay
“He leant tensely against the corridor wall and frowned like a man trying to unbend a corkscrew by telekinesis.”
"Stones, then rocks, then boulders which pranced past him like clumsy puppies, only much, much bigger, much, much harder and heavier, and almost infinitely more likely to kill you if they fell on you.”
"He gazed keenly into the distance and looked as if he would quite like the wind to blow his hair back dramatically at that point, but the wind was busy fooling around with some leaves a little way off.”
"It looked only partly like a spaceship with guidance fins, rocket engines and escape hatches and so on, and a great deal like a small upended Italian bistro.”
"If it was an emotion, it was a totally emotionless one. It was hatred, implacable hatred. It was cold, not like ice is cold, but like a wall is cold. It was impersonal, not as a randomly flung fist in a crowd is impersonal, but like a computer-issued parking summons is impersonal. And it was deadly - again, not like a bullet or a knife is deadly, but like a brick wall across a motorway is deadly.”
And, of course:
"The ships hung in the sky in much the same way that bricks don’t."
"It was cold, not like ice is cold, but like a wall is cold."
This sentence. Just this.
Why does no one talk about the possibility of a Cosette and Feuilly friendship?
Cosette and Feuilly having quiet somber conversations in the back of the Musain about how they both coped with being orphans. Feuilly smiling sweetly as Cosette talks of Fantine and what she remember of her, as well as the father Valjean became to her. Feuilly talking a little of what he expects his parents were like but more about the family he found through Les Amis.
Cosette and Feuilly in an unlikely strong sibling-like friendship. Going out for coffee on Feuilly’s lunch breaks even if his workmates think she’s his girlfriend (he says its not like that). Feuilly stepping in when a guy gets too handsy with Cosette as she waits for Marius to come pick her up. Feuilly being one of the first people Cosette tells when Marius proposes (they tell the whole group, but she calls Feuilly right after seeing Valjean). Cosette making Feuilly godfather of her and Marius’ child (Courf is the other one).
Cosette and Feuilly friendship (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:・ﾟ✧
More “Tweets from the Barricade”
This conversation is from about the time they would have filmed “The First Attack.”
Note: I double checked, the time stamps are off by -8 hours (I said 7 before but I forgot that GMT doesn’t factor in daylight savings). Add 8 hours to get the correct time.
