Vous rappelez-vous notre douce vie,
Lorsque nous étions si jeunes tous deux,
Et que nous n’avions au cœur d’autre envie
Que d’être bien mis et d’être amoureux?
Do you remember our sweet life,
when we were both so young,
and when we had no other desire in our hearts
than to be well dressed and in love?
Thank you! So I’m taking this opportunity to play around with a Modern AU I’ve been toying with, which is loosely based on one of my favorite films of all time, Dead Poets Society. The quote and the title come from Walt Whitman’s Leaves of Grass. Enjoy!
Grantaire never wanted to go to prep school.
If the decision had been his to make, he would have been spending his senior year at the public school in his hometown, coasting through his classes en route to his predetermined slot at the same little Ivy his father had gone to. But when his parents discovered him drunk three different times on the gin he’d filched from their unlocked liquor cabinet — the third time while lying naked in bed with his best friend — their solution was to ship him away for his final year, hoping that the strict discipline of the headmasters would make up for 17 years of no discipline at all.
And Grantaire was unhappy.
It wasn’t the academics that bothered him — he was one of those students who could get away with not studying all semester and still walk away with a good grade on the final. And it wasn’t even the rules that bothered him — he had managed to charm a day student named Montparnasse to supply him with alcohol of different varieties that he kept in a flask in his room. But at his new school, his longish hair and his self-deprecating humor made him an outcast among the rest of the boys, who oozed conformity and self-satisfaction from every pore. So for the most part he spent his time alone, sketching idly in notebooks and biding his time until graduation and college.
The one bright spot in prep school life was Enjolras.

Reblog if you’ve ever watched a tv show or movie because of one specific actor in it.
Recognize that deep down you love your inner critic. How sad, how sordid. How cheap. Secretly writers do love the censor within. We say we hate that sanctimonious inner voice, but there is no better excuse for procrastination, lethargy and despair. There is no better excuse for getting nothing done than to lock yourself in battle with the famous inner demons of self-criticism and doubt.
this is the most important piece of writing on writing i have ever read
It’s funny how 12 hours of sleep and a sunny March day where the temperature is above 50 can make you feel 100% better about everything.
YOU CAN FUCKING DO IT!!! [x]
