Now that I have figured out how to get things from my old phone to my laptop, I can finally post this little gem.
The photo is really crappy, but!!! This is an illustration by Victor Hugo of that scene where Grantaire is playing dominoes at the Barrière du Maine.
The caption says:
– et vla ma culotte! in which culotte is some dominoes slang term meaning that you’re losing but can also be read as “here go my pants”
– 47 + 37 = 77 which is some good math I’m not going to argue with that
Grantaire could be either one (I’m betting on the left though) but either way he HAS A MOUSTACHE now discuss
omg this is the best thing ever to occur to me
we now know what Grantaire looks like
HERE GO MY PANTS
thank you so much for this post.
AHAHA MUSTACHE. This is delightful in all possible ways.
(pst Pliny have you seen Hugo’s Gavroche)
This is simultaneously fascinating and distressing.
i dont know what to say
grantaire looks like a fucking moomin and i cant anymore
PFFTT A FUCKING MOOMIN.
Truly we should all respect Victor Hugo’s artistic vision and draw Grantaire as he was originally intended: a white hippo-like troll creature from Finland.
