Ladies of Les Mis Aesthetic: Mythical Figures

Fantine as Medusa, cursed Gorgon of Greek mythology I had to their stories work so well together

To those who dare to love
To stare into deep eyes
Stay forever divine
Medusa’s love struck statues
Frozen in time - Lekalina

Eponine as Hel, Norse Goddess of the Underworld

She wears strength and darkness equally well, the girl has always been half goddess, half hell. - Nikita Gill

Cosette as Amaterasu, Shinto Goddess, Ruler of the Universe

Exist by the sun and love by the moon, for you must live in light to embrace the shadows it so perfectly casts. - Becca Lee

Musichetta as Oshun, African Goddess of Beauty, Love, Prosperity, Order and Fertility

When She possesses her followers she dances, flirts and then weeps- because no one can love her enough and the world is not as beautiful as she knows it could possibly be.

okay no one really talks about modern day fantine headcanons so here we go

  • fantine having 3 jobs and Makes time to take little cosette to her karate and dance lessons 
  • fantine snorts when she laughs (cosette also snorts when she laughs)
  • fantine dresses like a cool librarian 
  • when her hair gets too long, she gets it cut and donates the hair to charity 
  • fantine being the Best single mother and had cosette when she was young 

feel free to add some??

We don’t talk about and venerate Fantine enough. I mean, this is a woman that was taken in when she was young and naive by a wealthy, (implied) much older man that lured her in with fun and promises, then heartlessly abandoned her to marry into his own class, leaving her pregnant and alone in a time where that was the ultimate taboo. She gave up her money, her comfort, her hair, her teeth, her body, her dignity, and eventually her life for that little girl. She was fired, beaten, starved, harassed, coerced, humiliated, arrested, and abandoned by society for the social crime of being an unwed mother, but she never stopped paying for the (supposed) care of Cosette.

if you think about it, the quote from the finale/epilogue “to love another person is to see the face of god” could be taken literally or figuratively.

enjolras died for the citizens of france. grantaire died for enjolras. fantine died for cosette. valjean died for cosette. the barricade boys died for each other and for the citizens of france. éponine died for marius. javert died for himself (i assume self love counts).

everyone who died ended up dying for someone, and therefore went to heaven (because they’re all super christian).

this means, by loving someone, they all ended up seeing god.
