It's not that I am super happy that Macron won - but I am certainly ecstatic that Le Pen lost. I knew a majority of people preferred Macron to Le Pen, but I wasn't sure how many of them would actually vote. Le Pen's voters ALWAYS show up, what if too many other people chose to vote blank, or didn't vote at all (which, in the French system, amounts to the exact same)?

ANYWAYS. It's over for today. Le Pen lost. Tonight we celebrate, tonight we're relieved and happy.

Tomorrow we fight on. The legislative elections are just around the corner. Le Pen's score is still the highest so far and we have to stay focused and mobilized.

(Overheard on tumblr:

Marine Le Pen is a dementor, pass it on.
