The actual punchine to this comic is the phrase “my Pontmercy friend”. From now on I am resolved to use Pontmercy indiscriminately as all parts of speech, adjective, verb, and otherwise

After the mention of Susan only moments before, I thought I saw him react to the word “grandfather” coming up again so unexpectedly. Even if it wasn’t the intended effect in the script - I think he might’ve had quite a flood of memories rush inside his mid at that moment.
yosb:❝ G A T S B Y turned out all right at the end; it is what preyed on Gatsby, what foul dust floated in the wake of his dreams that temporarily closed out my interest in the abortive sorrows and short-winded elations of men.

I wanted to try drawing reincarnations, too.
Oooohhhh, that hit me in the feels harder than I expected.
ETA: Also, I recognise that statue but the names of the figures escape me. Not Nisus&Euryalus, not Harmodius&Aristogeiton, but I swear I’ve seen it somewhere and the guys were ~epic gay lovers~ of some sort.
Reblogging in case anyone else is interested:
The sculpture is called San Ildefonso Group or Castor and Pollux or Orestes and Pylades, and is located in Museo del Prado in Madrid (there are copies in various other places). By the titles only, you can see there are many interpretations about who these boys are, wikipedia says Castor and Pollux or Hypnos and Thanatos while the museum’s site claims them to be Orestes and Pylades… Guess which interpretation I went for.
Another interesting info given on the museum’s site: In modern times, the Roman portrait of Antinuous was added to the left torso.
Which I find incredibly fitting given as Enjolras was described as “Antinous wild”.
