You buy you’re own copy of the brick. You read quickly, excited to meet the characters. You reach page 38. You have only met Bishop Myriel. Where are the other characters? You reach page 621. There is only the bishop. Where is Valjean?
You open a fanfiction by a writer you’ve never heard of. Three pages in you realize you’ve read this fanfiction. You’ve only read this fanfiction. There are no other fanfictions.
You see a post by @just-french-me-upand decide to follow her. You’re sure you’ve followed her before. You see a post by @just-french-me-up and decide to follow her. You’re sure you’ve followed her before.
Fanart appears on your dash. The character is one you’ve never heard of. You ask. “She is only in the brick,” they tell you. You cannot find her. “She is only in the 2012 film adaptation,” they repeat. She is not there. “She was added in the musical.” She wasn’t.
There are hundreds of posts about Jehanparnasse. “It is Jehanparnasse week,” they all tell you. It was Jehanparnasse week last week. It is always Jehanparnasse week.
Someone reblogs your post. Their blog is not a les mis blog. The post has 321 reblogs. None of them are for les mis blogs. You do not know why
Everyone loves Enjolras. He is the only one they post about. All the art is him. All the headcannons are for him. All the blogs are named for him. You wonder why you thought there were other characters.
You carry your Brick around to class with you. Your bag gets heavier and heavier. By the end of the day, Victor Hugo has added 200 new pages about the Parisian Sewer System.

”Hey Ohm,” Ryan blinked. That was new, Luke mentioning him in a video outside of youtube. Ryan watched as the lens got blinded by the light of the airport before coming back into focus. ”I just landed, and it’s not ice tea,”
my headcanon for Enjolras’ first name is Georg because “average person starts 1 revolution a year" factoid actualy just statistical error. average person starts 0 revolutions per year. Georg Enjolras, who lives in cafe & starts over 10,000 revolutions each day, is an outlier adn should not have been counted.
