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.

Les Amis Ver.
F a n t i n e & C o s e t t e

In the depths of Fantine’s nature, we know dwelt modesty and virtue. She had a vague feeling that she was on the eve of falling into distress. She must have courage, she had it, and bore up bravely. 

There was in Cosette’s veins the blood of the bohemian and of the adventuress who goes barefoot. It must be remembered that she was rather a lark than a dove. She was wild and brave at heart.

Don’t get me wrong, I love a good ExR/Les Amis afterlife reunion as much as anyone, but, think of all the other afterlife possibilties

-Valjean meeting Felix Tholomyes and punching him in the face
-Fantine meeting the Thenardiers and punching them in the face
-Eponine and Gavroche waiting for the rest of their siblings, and finally having the childhood they never got
-Fantine and Cosette. Just…Fantine and Cosette
-Georges Pontmercy watching over Marius
-And being reunited with his old friend Mabeuf, who tells him all about how his son is doing now
-Feuilly meeting his (proud) parents
-Valjean’s long-dead family welcoming Cosette as a cousin
-Anyone meeting Javert


‘Cosette is ill with a malady which is going the rounds of the neighbourhood. A miliary fever, they call it. Expensive drugs are required. This is ruining us, and we can no longer pay for them. If you do not send us forty francs before the week is out, the little one will be dead.’
