I’ve been re-listening to the Hamilton soundtrack lately and I’m newly obsessed with the characterization of the Marquis de Lafayette. For context, Gilbert de Lafayette was demonstrably, historically, a COMPLETE MADMAN.
It wasn’t entirely his fault. His family, one of the noblest in France, had a reputation for birthing some of the batshit craziest motherfuckers ever to say “oui.” His ancestor fought with Joan of Arc. Another stole Jesus’s crown of thorns, his dad was blown up by a cannonball.
When a male Lafayette was born, the country probably audibly groaned and wondered what utter lunacy they had to look out for because the family was THAT famous for birthing brave-ass, troublemaking monster bois. Hamilton’s Lafayette did not disappoint.
I’m finally watching the Rocky movies because i loved Creed and idk why none of you told me that Rocky Balboa was a birdseed-eating, dog-washing, turtle-loving cinnamon roll who invited a tiger to his wedding
I know these movies are about the triumph of human will but also Rocky has regular conversations with his dog like he’s a person and is a sweet gentle angel who loves his wife and can’t read good am i crying
His arms are so big but his heart is so much bigger I’m literally 40 Years late to the Rocky train but I would d i e for Rocky Balboa
