Louison by cillabub
Louison!  I figured Thanksgiving was a good time to give a little thought to our favorite food-serving girl!  <3
Dramatic Hair by cillabub
Dramatic Hair
Just a simple Enjolras/Combeferre today, with dramatic hair.  Man, I love drawing hair...!  :)  Looks like a female Enjolras, so I'll tag this for Virago.
Flirting Again by cillabub
Flirting Again

Claude Enjolras and Combeferre, just flirting a bit.  Which accounts for pretty much the first two-and-a-half Julys of Virago.  XD

Find Virago here!

Self-Portrait by cillabub
Like the title says.  A bit awkward, as always.  >__>
Leudegar And Dionysius by cillabub
Leudegar And Dionysius

An All Saints' Day picture for my saintly darlings.  Sadly, all medieval saints do not get along, because they can be territorial, aggressive, whiny little babies, despite being hundreds of years old.  Nobody holds a grudge for centuries like a saint.  Here we have two ancient, awe-inspiring, super-powerful beings, Sts. Denis of Paris (left) and Leudegar of Autun (right), deciding they are going to pout and avoid talking to each other for at least the next two hundred years or so… Sigh.  Boys, really…?   You're both awesome bishop saints, don't feud like spoiled brats.   =___=

If my monk Gauzbert is going to be a saint-whisperer, he better get used to dealing with petty little spats like this…  




United States
Favourite genre of music: Showtunes! Yes! And French pop ("F-pop"...?).
Favourite style of art: Art Nouveau, Caravaggesque Baroque
Favourite cartoon character: Zazu, Li Shang, Tulio&Miguel (since I don't count anime as "cartoons")

"Paris, 1828.  Claude Enjolras is a severe, single-minded soldier of the revolution, the leader of a secret political society that is always ready to go to battle against injustice and oppression.  She is also, however, a woman disguising herself as a man in order to reject the demands of society and instead follow her ideals.  For four years Enjolras' disguise has worked well for her, and her contributions to the underground revolutionary movement have at last begun to win her the respect of her colleagues.  But when her secret is inadvertently revealed to her lieutenant, it throws her two separate worlds onto a collision course and sets in motion a chain of events that will force Enjolras to come to terms with her family, her friends, her political allies, and herself.  Through five crucial summers of her life, one unconventional woman describes how her faith, courage, and love are tested in the flames of a revolution that will change everything. 

VIRAGO is a new story based on characters from Victor Hugo's classic novel Les Misérables.  It began as an experiment to see what would be the wider consequences of altering one little canonical detail, but it turned into an intimate exploration of gender and sex, of duty and emotion, of the nature of friendship and love, and above all, of a complicated character who quickly took on a life of her own." 

For those of you who wanted to know, my novel is officially live! (Translation: the novel is off my plate and I can't touch it anymore and it's for my own good.)  Go here to find it on Amazon!

If you don't have an actual Kindle (I don't either!), Amazon Kindle has free apps for PC, iPhone, tablet, and so on--just follow the link at the top of the book’s page.  I personally prefer the apps on larger screen devices to the phone ones, because phone screens are so small that the formatting in the text gets a bit wonky.  If that sort of thing doesn't bother you, go for it, but it may get a little weird when there are songs and poems and letters and such inserted into the block text.

Previews for the first five chapters and the prologue can be found here on the website (along with other fun stuff), and here are the maps that go with the story, for those who like knowing where stuff is:


Latin Quarter


Hôtel de Ville

Enjoy the adventures of Mademoiselle Enjolras!  In the meantime, I'm just so happy to be done editing.....I think I'll go draw a picture to celebrate.  :)

  • Mood: Love
  • Listening to: crappy TV in the background
