#The Miserable(s) Month
thepiecesofcait · 3 days ago
Hello! just wanted to say, I got my link to the PDF of your Miserable Month and it looks fantastic! I'm so glad I got the preorder, there are definitely illos I missed and they are all so wonderful! Thanks for making them available this way!
Hello!
Thank you! I have been hoarding this ask for weeks because it brings me such joy to read - this little zine project has consumed so much of my life these past few months, and there’s definitely been moments I’ve wanted to walk away from it completely, BUT! I DIDN’T! And I am so so so proud of how everything has turned out!
Also - as of today all of the preorders are officially on their way! (Technically they have been for a fortnight, but I called in some help with posting to take the edge off of shipping rates between Australia and the US, and that leg of the shipping took a hot minute)
Everyone that ordered a copy should have received an email through Etsy with their tracking number by now, and they should be arriving within the next week or so! I am so excited for people to finally be getting their copies, and I am so so thankful for everyone that supported this project!
Once all the zines arrive at their new homes I’ll be listing my leftover copies on my Etsy store, so if anyone wanted one but missed out on the preorder window keep an eye out for that :)

Is there a deadline to ordering the zine? Because I’m an idiot when it comes to ordering stuff and I don’t want to miss it if there might be a deadline!!!
Hello! What an excellent question, and one I definitely intended to include the answer to in my original post!
The Zine preorder window closes at midday on May 9 (GMT+8 timezone)
I will be rounding my stock orders up, and once all the preorders have made it to their new homes I’ll be listing the leftovers on my Etsy, so if you miss out on this round or the current timing will hit your budget too hard there will be another chance!

Guess who finally turned their Miserable(s) Month artworks into a zine which is officially as of right now available for PREORDER!
You can have it one of three ways!
A PDF Download;
An A5 physical copy of the zine; or
A bundle of goodies, featuring the zine + three A5 prints + a funky holographic Candlesticker!
Also! I filmed a time-lapse of how this cover came together to give a little look into the ink process I use. You can find that here!
I’ve been chipping away at this project for so long, and I’m so excited to finally be able to share these with y’all!

I’m going to be making a process video for how I tackled @themiserablesmonth last October, and would love to ensure I address any questions about the project that anyone might have had!
My askbox is anon-enabled and my inbox is open! Ask me anything!
I’ll be filming the painting I hope to use for the cover of my Miserables Month zine (that I am finally in the home stretch of preparing!) which I hope to open preorders up for later this month!

Okay, this might sound kind of weird, but I am absolutely OBSESSED with your drawing of 'disguise'. I don't know why, it's just... the proportions are perfect, the way each little part fits together, her expression, the red highlights... for some reason it just hit something really deep inside of me so thank you for that.
I always love hearing about people’s reactions to the different pieces from that series!
It was such an intensely busy time for me, and I didn’t get to really dwell much over finished pieces, but I’ve been looking back over them recently and Disguise is one of my favourites. The quote really hit me the minute I read it, and I’m glad to hear the drawing did it justice!
Fun treat, because I very rarely share unfinished pieces: here’s the digital draft for Disguise! (featuring the rough sketch on the right that locked in the direction for the whole piece)
Tumblr media
I did all my drafting in procreate then used a light box to transfer the key parts to watercolour paper for inking. This saved me so much time, since I could move and resize stuff super quick before committing to pencil on paper, and also I could play around with where my lightest and darkest parts would be to try keep decent contrast between overlapping parts.

The Miserable(s) Month, day 29 - TIME + Day 30 - FLAG
Valjean and Javert through the years:
Valjean in Toulon and in Paris 
Javert in Montreuil sur Mer and under the Seine
I’ve left behind two prompts the past days, so I’ve merged them together.
(Javert with the flag is inspired by the Spanish Javert in the musical, who kisses the flag during One day more)

The Miserable(s) Month, day 31 - FUTURE Post Seine AU: A big, happy (?) extended family, with Javert too, on the wedding day.
Javert, which is obviously very protective with Valjean and Cosette too.... 
So, Marius, beware! Don’t try to separate them, you’re warned!
@themiserablesmonth
(Ps: my first try to draw seriously Marius.... Maybe here is not so evident, but I’ve tried to make him a bit like Michael Ball, my favourite Marius)

Day 31 : Future / Budoucnost
Fandom: Les Misérables/Bídníci   Lengt: Oneshot, 2.700+ words   Rating: T (Teen and Up Audience)   Warning: None Parning(s): Enjolras/Grantaire     Character(s): Enjolras, Grantaire, mention of Enjlolras’ parents Tag(s): Alternate Universe - Modern Setting, Fluff, Established Relationship, Tooth-rooting fluff For “The Miserable(s) Month” by @themiserablesmonth​.
Grantaire si povzdechl. „Točíme se v kruhu,“ zašeptal si spíše pro sebe a zvedl se ze svého místa. „Enjolrasi. Já… jsem unavenej.“ „Dobře. Chceš před spaním ještě udělat čaj?“ „Ne, Enjolrasi. Já jsem unavenej. Z tohohle. Z toho, co se tady už tolik let děje a nevidím jedinej moment, kdy by se cokoliv změnilo.“ Enjolras byl chvíli ticho. Párkrát zamrkal a pak se zamračil. „Ty… se se mnou rozcházíš?“ „Ježiš, ne, to ne…“ Grantaire nahlas zasténal. Jak mu to jen měl vysvětlit? Enjolras lidským pocitům tolik nerozuměl. Neměl mu to za zlé. Ale občas – občas ho to frustrovalo. „Chci jenom vědět proč to děláš? Proč mě pořád vystavuješ takovýmu stresu?“ Stáli tam, dívali se jeden druhému do očí, ale ani jeden nic neříkal. x  Grantaire sighed. "We're running in a circle," he whispered to himself, rising from his seat. “Enjolras... I'm tired."  "Okay. Do you want to make tea before going to bed?”  "No, Enjolras. I'm tired. From this. From what has been going on here for so many years and I don't see a single moment when anything would change."  Enjolras was silent for a moment. He blinked a few times and then frowned. "Are you breaking up with me?"  "Jesus, no, of course not," Grantaire groaned aloud. How was he supposed to explain it to him? Enjolras didn’t understand human feelings so much. He didn't blame him. But sometimes - sometimes it frustrated him. "I just want to know why you're doing this? Why do you keep exposing me to such stress?”  They stood there, looking into each other's eyes, but neither said anything.

A/N CZ: A je to za námi přátelé. Páni, ten měsíc utekl opravdu rychle! Chtěla bych vám touto cestou moc poděkovat za všechna přečtení a komentáře, které jste mi zanechali. Rozhodně nepřestávejte! Nezapomínejte, že tohle je pro spisovatele hnací motor, který je žene dál a mají pak větší chuť psát a dělit se o svá díla. Doufám, že se zase brzy uvidíme! Btw. George Blagden, který pro mě už navěky bude představitel Grantaira, se dnes na svém instagramu pochlubil, že se stal již před týdnem otcem! Gratuluji! (Ignorujte fakt, že když jsem pak viděla, že mu gratuloval i Aaron (Enjolras) a vyměnili si pár slov, pískala jsem jak hystericka fanynka.)
A/N ENG: And we’re done, my dear friends. Wow, month passed really fast! I would like to take this opportunity to thank you very much for all the kudos and comments you have left me. Definitely don't stop! Remember that this is the driving force for writers, which drives them on and they have a greater desire to write and share their works. I hope we will see each other again soon! Btw. George Blagden, who will be Grantaire for me forever, posted on his instagram today that he had become a father a week ago! Congratulations! (Ignore the fact that when I saw Aaron (Enjolras) congratulate him and they exchanged a few words, I screamed like a hysterical fan.)

#31 - Future
The day after their daring escape from the barricades sees all of the Amis stuffed into a diligence headed towards the south of France, to Enjolras’ ancestral home. Outside is gray and gloomy, everyone is nursing their various wounds, and Bahorel periodically breaks from his impassioned recounting of the event to wince audibly.
“Those bastards didn’t know what they—ah—got hit with,” he gasps.
“Don’t strain yourself,” Combeferre says and for once, Bahorel is quiet.
All their worldly possessions, all that they could keep anyway, were crammed into every possible nook of the diligence, from Prouvaire’s immense wardrobe to Joly’s stern and dignified cat. Courfeyrac frets over the absent Marius as the carriage jolts and bumps on the road.
“What do we do?”
“We look to the future,” Enjolras reminds them, his voice soft. “Someday, we will succeed.

Grantaire never used to much look forward to the future. But then he had met them.
My final oneshot for the Miserable(s) Month is now up on Ao3 for the prompt ‘future’. Hope you enjoy it and that you’ve enjoyed the others. Thanks to @thepiecesofcait for setting this whole thing up! It’s been awesome! Happy Halloween :)

Day 30 : Flag / Vlajka
Fandom: Les Misérables/Bídníci Lengt: Oneshot, 3.800+ words Rating: M (Mature) Warning: None Parning(s): Enjolras/Grantaire   Character(s): Enjolras, Grantaire, Enjolras’ parents and family, mention of Original Male Character(s) Tag(s): Alternate Universe - Modern Setting, Smut, Fluff For “The Miserable(s) Month” by @themiserablesmonth​.
Povzdechl si. Enjolras to také chtěl zažít. Nebyl necitlivý, i když si to o něm spousta lidí myslela. Myslel na lásku, i když o ní nemluvil. S věkem si začal připouštět, že představa svatby vlastně nebyla tak hrozná, jak se na poprvé zdálo. A s každým dalším rokem také věděl, že i když si o něm každý myslel, jak moc nevinný byl, měl za sebou už hodně zkušeností. Ty ho nechávaly občas po nocích vzhůru, dokud nebyl schopný se přetočit na břicho a protivné tlaky v podbřišku zahnat. „Ježiš, Enjolrasi,“ zabručel nahlas a zhluboka se nadechl. Na tohle zrovna myslet nechtěl. Je pravda, že už to bylo opravdu dlouho, kdy se někoho dotkl. Naposledy před půl rokem. x He sighed. Enjolras also wanted to experience it. He wasn't insensitive, though many people thought that of him. He thought of love, even though he didn't talk about it. With another year behind him, he began to admit that the idea of a wedding wasn't as terrible as it had first seemed. And with each passing year, he also knew that even though everyone thought about him as innocent, he had a lot of experience. They kept him awake from time to time until he was able to roll onto his stomach and drive away the annoying pressures in his lower abdomen.  "Jesus, Enjolras," he growled aloud, taking a deep breath. He just didn't want to think about that. It's true that it's been a long time since he's touched anyone. Last time was half a year ago.

A/N CZ: Omlouvám se? Omlouvám se. (Na mou obhajobu! Mělo to být více “detailní”, ale nakonec jsem se rozhodla to ponechat na té hranici 15+.)
A/N ENG: I'm sorry? I'm sorry. (In my defense! It was supposed to be more "detailed", but in the end I decided to keep it at the M-rate limit.)

#30 - Flag
“It’s a bookmark. Pleasantly offensive,” Prouvaire says, making his final stitches. “He’ll love it.”
Feuilly stares. “I am not giving Enjolras a miniature flag as a present.”
Prouvaire picks up the flag, waves it around, and draws a miniature Enjolras to go along with it. “Eh? Eh?”
“…We’ll go with something safer.”
