Fixa Idea

Complaint of the day: when in fan fiction (or any text, really) someone says ‘I have feelings for you’.

…Well, way to be vague. Like, Enjolras in Les Misérables does indeed have canonically feelings for Grantaire. Contempt and some pity. Those are feelings too.

Kotor, Montenegro, 2011



A comma splice walks into a bar, it has a drink and then leaves.

A question mark walks into a bar?

Two quotation marks “Walk into” a bar.

A gerund and an infinitive walk into a bar, drinking to drink.

The bar was walked into by a passive voice.

Three intransitive verbs walk into a bar. They sit. They drink. They leave.



A mute cartoon about Gavroche’s adventures in “Les Misérables”.

I think it’s a Ukranian production.

Funny how out of all the animated adaptations I’ve seen this is the most atmospheric and true to the book. It doesn’t try to show everything, just follows Gavroche but delivers perfectly what it promised.



Forget every single action he took (Le Cabuc, the acid, the sergeant), but do words still hold any meaning?

Enjolras was described as ‘virile’ in the book.

They’ll just bring up how his cheeks were likened to a little girl’s and the one descriptor of having a woman’s face. Because obviously having some physical features more feminine than masculine must mean he’s feminine in everything. But not just feminine, like they do with Jehan while also stressing how badass he is; Enjolras has to be HYPER-feminine. Always small and meek and face poised for a Maybelline ad, with eyes submissively turned down and red mouth parted, and very long flowing hair from a shampoo commercial. He must shrink in the shadow of masculine He-Men beside him, and near faint at their physique like a woman ogling a construction worker in a Coke commercial. He’s always mistaken for a woman in a derogatory fashion and cannot defend his own honor—another manly Ami must do that for him because Enjolras could not scare a rabbit.

Are you frothing blood like i am yet?

…In every fandom I have ever looked into there were popular misinterpretations like this, but this has to be one of the most silly. In my mind at least it’s almost inconsequential if Enjolras looks manly or girly, there seems to be this cold, hard, you-shall-not-mess-with-me kind of air about him and… he’s just so detached from the material world he could BE a girl (if the time period allowed for it) for all that matters, it still wouldn’t make him submissive or soft.


Mary Sue is not any girl character who dares to be larger than life. That interpretation is fairly recent and incredibly annoying.

Mary Sue is that character who, when they show up, every other character and the narrative itself becomes little more than a reflection of his or her presence and activities. The writer wants us all to be as fixated on Mary Sue as they are, and the pressure that puts on the reader is the source of the animosity. 

I know this complaint is at least a decade too late, but I didn’t have a Tumblr when Harry Potter first came out, now did I?

So let’s get something straight, shall we? The Hungarian Horntail is wrong. It’s all wrong. A self-respecting Hungarian dragon has at least three heads. Preferably seven.

Sure, there’s a children’s show where the protagonist is a one-headed dragon, but he’s the Dragon Realm’s laughing stock even before he’s exiled on account of being too kind and compassionate and just generally not hardcore enough to be a proper dragon.


This fellow here is the only one-headed Hungarian dragon. He loves butterflies and he wants to be a rosebud. (He’s called Süsü, by the way.)

I’m sure I’m not the only one who, upon hearing the first notes and the part from 3:00 on of this piece automatically thinks ‘Il était une fois…

(It’s actually Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in D minor)
