Anonymous: Ok so im not english so what is squire and could you pls explain the joke u are rlly nice thank you xx

hi!  Of course <333

A squire is is kind of like a landlord, or someone who attends a knight.  And the thing at the end is a pun on “The square of the hypotenuse is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides”, which is the Pythagorean Theorem, a^2+b^2=c^2

here’s a picture of it :3

Anonymous: have I ever come here before? this is Enjolras, from 1828 to your inbox. -Enjolrasanon

I believe so, but hello, Enjolras!  How is 1828?  :3

I just spent a while trying to filter this to look a little less &#8220;nice unassuming hero&#8221; and more &#8220;will crush governments I don&#8217;t like with as much force as necessary&#8221;

Anonymous: Hi I stumbled upon this blog by accident and it seems cool but what exactly do you do? Is it like a roleplay thing or what? :)

Hi there! Well, we don’t do anything yet, as auditions have yet to open, but the plan is that we’ll be kind of like lesamisstagram, if you want to have a peek at what they do to have an example! Basically, people will audition for a Shakespeare character they want to portray - auditions are necessary because we anticipate some competition for the more popular roles - and then they create an Instagram profile for that character, and on that platform, all the characters will interact in a modern setting. Just imagine Benvolio posting a photo of Romeo and captioning it “romeo, my #mcm for life” or something. It’s a little bit of roleplay, a little bit of taking silly photos of yourself and the things around you, and a little bit of weird hashtags and a bunch of characters from different plays interacting over Instagram!
