I check almost every box, except for the one about birthdays. (My family almost always celebrates more than one people in one geathering to save time so it takes the focus off of me.)
As for the job… I can’t really afford to be a picker.
Ladies and gentlemen, from Bedknobs and Broomsticks I give you my absolute favourite battle scene of all time. I’ve first watched this film when I was about five years old. It was in English and I hardly understood a word of it but it was still the coolest thing I’ve ever seen.

Mine’s a long story… So my name is Zsofi (Sophie) and, being an Astérix fan, I used to use ‘zsofix’ on internet forums. Then one of my friends changed it to Fixa and started to call me that. It stuck, but as it were most people assumed it came from the latin expression ‘fixa idea’.
Which works fine for me, so, again, it stuck.
Jhonny I hardly knew ya
Because I haven’t yet cried today…

Have you ever read the Night Watch? A Discworld novel by Terry Pratchett? If no, I definitely suggest you give it a try because it’s simply brilliant! While it’s not such a straight-up parody of Les Misérables as Maskerade is of The Phantom of the Opera the hints are all but subtle…
Like almost all Discworld books this also can be read on its own. While there are occasional in-jokes the context and the background of the main characters can be understood after a five-minutes trip to Wikipedia (or an ask in my inbox).
While this is definitely one of the darkest, most serious Discworld novels, it isn’t any less funny than the others. (And Mizzies can play bingo with the tropes and characters, see who got who’s role… Let’s just say Enjolras literally refuses to die and the guy in Javert’s role is 200% done with everyone’s shit…)
P.S.: This guy is badass.
I swear this isn’t going to turn into a full-on fandom blog, but I draw what fascinates me, and I tend to overthink things. Also, Les Misérables is very long, so I won’t be over it for some time.
That being said, do you know what bugs me? Enjolras’ colour-coding. Not just because of my…
It was a symbol. If I remember correctly, they wore red waistcoats and carried a red flag in the brick as well. Red has been the color of revolution forever, not just in France. Yes, it’s a bit silly when you think of it practically, but you have to remember that they probably wouldn’t be wearing that red of a jacket/vest. It would be a darker/subdued red and it would only be a waistcoat.
I remember the flag, and that makes sense, but no mention of specific clothing. Anyway, I’m just re-reading the Brick and I’m almost at the bit about the barricade, so I’ll see soon.
