I have no powers and not nearly enough training, but I’m doing this anyways. Being a super hero is amazing. Everyone should try it.

okay but courfeyrac always bringing home flowers for combeferre when they have the extra money and he always rights a dumb pun and signs the card with “prince charming xoxo”
combeferre never fails to laugh at one of the jokes
okay y’all let’s talk pet headcanons:
- bossuet, musichetta, and joly have three rats named “batman”, “robin”, and “sunshine” respectively
- marius has a parrot who they’ve all just kind of casually nicknamed “motherfucker” because it’s the parrot’s catchphrase
- grantaire has a big, fluffy, angry cat who will pee on everything you love and whose name is dog
- combeferre and courfeyrac have a slobbery, excitable golden retriever puppy named lamarque
- enjolras is terribly allergic to anything with fur but animals love him
- bahorel with a chihuahua named killer
- jehan with a tarantula
- feuilly who loves pets, but can’t have one of his own, so he mooches off of everyone else’s pets (he volunteers to take care of lamarque every time that ferre and courf go out of town and then refuses to take their money for it) (they end up just slipping it in his coat pocket when he’s not looking)
- cosette with a fluffy little grey kitten whose name is Sergeant (but they all call him Sarge)
- eponine has an irish wolfhound named bruce banner (known as bruce, and affectionately called “the hulk”)
I got dressed in my traditional Indian regalia, but there was a man, he was the producer of the whole show. He took that speech away from me and he warned me very sternly. “I’ll give you 60 seconds or less. And if you go over that 60 seconds, I’ll have you arrested. I’ll have you put in handcuffs.”
- Sacheen Littlefeather in Reel Injun (2009), dir. Neil Diamond.
They were MAD, CONFUSED AND PRESSED that Marlon Brando would betray White Supremacy in this way.
To this very day, they are TWISTED over this.
And when Littlefeather got up there and READ THEM FOR FILTH, they GAGGED. For eons.
So I imagine there are people like me out there who’ve never even heard of Marlon Brando and are extremely confused over why this is important.
Marlon Brando was the Don in The Godfather, and in 1973, he was nominated for and won an Academy Award for it. However, he was also a huge Natives rights activist, and boycotted the ceremony because he felt that Hollywood’s depictions of Native Americans in the media led to the Wounded Knee Incident (which I was always taught as “the second massacre at Wounded Knee” but apparently that’s not the real name). He sent Sacheen Littlefeather, an Apache Native rights activist, in his stead. Wikipedia’s article on her explains the rest:
Brando had written a 15-page speech for Littlefeather to give at the ceremony, but when the producer met her backstage he threatened to physically remove her or have her arrested if she spoke on stage for more than 60 seconds. Her on-stage comments were therefore improvised. She then went backstage and read the entire speech to the press. In his autobiography My Word is My Bond, Roger Moore (who presented the award) claims he took the Oscar home with him and kept it in his possession until it was collected by an armed guard sent by the Academy.
That is what this gifset is about.
You have GOT to read up on this. The Wounded Knee Incident, Marlon Brando and Sacheen Littlefeather, Anna Mae Aquash. ALL OF IT.
Two other points that were made in Reel Injun:
1) many, many folk kept denying that Littlefeather was native, and consistently reported that she was a white actress dressed in native garb; and
2) John Wayne was so livid about her speech that she afraid of him. (Reel Injun also has a lot to say about how John Wayne’s films legitimized violence against Native Americans).
