I’m halfway convinced that at least once, when Courfeyrac felt Enjolras was going overboard with all the Severe Austerity, he must have turned to him and said:

‘You do realise that La Carmagnole is a roundel? A dance? The people singing it knew how to party!’

When a member of Les Amis de l'ABC, an antifa and anti-police organization, is assaulted, they’re forced to work together with the detectives of Manhattan’s Special Victims Unit to bring the perpetrators to justice.

It’s been awhile, y’all. And I return to you not to fill any prompts or provide the happy E/R content you hope for, but instead to write a crossover fic because I can’t stop won’t stop.

I know this will not be a lot of your cups of tea, but I figured I’d share. This is the first thing that’s gotten me excited about writing E/R in awhile, so at least there’s that!

Les Mis jokes that will never not be funny to me
  • anything about the Parisian Sewer System Chapters™
  • Calling the book “The Brick”
  • “Valjean is 24601% done”
  • Any speculation on Les Amis’s first names
  • especially “tHEY WERE ALL NAMED JEAN”
  • Threatening to fight Victor Hugo’s ghost (usu. over Les Amis’s first names)
  • LES AMIS AS *insert something bizarre like garden gnomes*
  • Calling Victor Hugo “Vicky H”, “kink-shame deserving Vicky,” etc
  • That Les Miserables/Bee Movie crossover fanfic called Les Beeserables starring Barry B. Jolras 
  • bread memes
  • “Grantaire is canonically ugly” haha sure yeah right
  • “We never learn Javert’s first name”  “Yeah we do it’s Inspector”
  • EnjolrasXPatria fanfic 
  • Any post along the lines of “You idiots have forgotten Les Amis aren’t the main characters of Les Mis. The REAL main character is the Parisian Sewer System”

    Feel free to add more

I love how 155 years after Les Mis was published the impact is so great that we are still gaining souls to The Cause™
Like I’ll be scrolling through tags or whatever and see people’s drawings and they’ll be like “started reading les mis for the first time and decided to draw Cosette,” or “I just watched Les Mis and why did no one tell me there were GAYS this is amazing"
Somewhere out in the universe Vicky HugeHoe is cackling with glee because even a century and a half later he’s still making people Fucking Miserable™

“Why does the les mis fandom obsess over les amis when they have no content and aren’t even the main characters???”

i mean idk about you but i can relate much more to young people suffering at the hands of society than i can about an old dude who yanked a child from the woods and carries wigs in his pockets
