I mean I love the fact that “I’m sorry Victor Hugo” is a popular tag on AO3 but let’s be real, we don’t need to apologise for anything, if Good Old Kinkshame-Deserving Vicky was alive today he would read every smutty fanfic with Great Enjoyment and would be the top author
i relate to george blagden on a personal level because if i was working with aaron tveit i too would stare at him lovingly all the time ‘for the sake of enjoltaire’ and not at all because he looks like an actual angel what are you talking about
Louise Michel was a French feminist anarchist from the Commune de Paris (1871), and she was a close friend of Victor Hugo. She’s best known by her nickname “Enjolras”, because of her fighting for revolutionary stuff and because she decided to sign her poems this way. After a looong correspondence with Hugo (i ship them, also you have to know Hugo flirted with her so much), in 1851 they finally met. As everyone knows, “Les Misérables” was out in 1862, twelve years later their meeting.
When she was arrested in 1871, after the end of the Commune, Victor Hugo wrote for her his poem “Viro Major” (sorry for the shitty translation, i’m italian):
Those, woman, in front of your indomitable majesty, they meditated, and despite the bitter bend on your mouth, despite the cursed who, raging against you, spitted at you all the angry screams of law, despite his fatal and high voice that accuse you, they saw the angel shining through the Medusa.
SO!!! Louise and Hugo met in 1851, Les Mis was published in 1862, and then !!! she called herself Enjolras in 1871.
Let’s not forget that Hugo maybe was in love with her, or at least he admired, loved, and venerated Louise. He had more than one lover, like Grantaire.
I smell definitely CANON!!!!!! MY GOD I’M CRYING?????
