Hey does anyone remember the “Marius is a vampire” theory from Les Mis fandom

Like, he spends all his time brooding and only goes out at night…never eats…avoids human contact…very dramatic…has a defunct noble title..does a lot of stalking…naturally talented at murder…

ANYWAY, it just occurred to me that “literally just Marius Pontmercy” would be a FANTASTIC character for an urban fantasy tabletop rpg

imagine getting a tip that there’s an obvious vampire lurking around who’s been seen talking to the police, he’s gotta be powerful! And you track him down and he’s just a very awkward human law student living on his friend’s couch who accidentally became an extremely powerful figure in the supernatural underworld please leave him alone??? But take a business card first, he accidentally spent all his money printing 500 of them

  • Davey: Where's Jack?
  • Les: Doing stuff.
  • Davey: I don't like the sound of that. Where's Katherine?
  • Les: Trying to stop Jack from doing the stuff.
  • Davey: Race?
  • Les: Trying to stop Katherine from stopping Jack from doing the stuff.
  • Davey: I see. And what are you doing here, Les?
  • Les: I'm supposed to stop you from stopping Race from stopping Katherine from stopping Jack from doing the stuff.

Grantaire and combeferre start a punk band called Jason and the Argonauts with jehan is their lyricist, with such hits as; 

Atlas Held Up the World, But Can He Hold Up My Sick Guns, ft Bahorel on the kazoo, which he has spent his life playing

I pissed in narcissus’ pond, ft eponine with her opera singing

Psyched Out for Love, ft Marius Pontmercy’s autotuned confusion while we recorded him wailing about how the girl he’s facebook stalking will never love him and then he realized we were recording 

Prometheus and Liver Dinner Ft Feuilly tricking enjolras into thinking that as a kid he had to raise a cow to adulthood and then kill it himself and was given only the liver to eat 

“Persephone and the three strings” ft Cosette on her violin as she sings about even good mothers with the best intentions can fail their children 

Can’t Buy My Love (with red string): a Theseus Tribute 

I Jacked Off To Zeus’ Aegis and He Was Into It 

Athena Loves The Stars ft combeferre drunk off his ass sobbing about astrophysics

“Do you hear the people sing
Lost in the valley of the night
It is a music of a people who are climbing to the light
For the wretched of the earth, there is a flame that never dies
Even darkest nights will end and the sun will rise”
- Les Misérables (musical), finale

I love the idea of grantaire silently picking up his friends habits? Grantaire looks up to the stars while on smoke breaks, matching the Big Dipper and then Orion in the sky, whispering Sylvia Plath’s “I need some older, wiser being to cry to. I talk to god, but the sky is empty, and Orion walks by and doesn’t speak,” the very lines combeferre utters after a shitty protest. He grows onions on the windowsill, clipped from musichetta’s little city garden that grows wild and free in a small dingy flower box in her apartment. He takes to singing sea shanties when showering, right after bahorel, who father was a fisherman. Grantaire does slow waltzes in his small apartment kitchen with an invisible partner, just the way eponine does when it’s morning and she just got paid and is making gavroche pancakes. He learns to love the parts of him that are his friends, and maybe a bit of himself too

the evolution of enjolras’s hair, from high school through college (because i’m a lazy asshole who can’t be bothered to try to figure out france’s weird as hell school system)

edit: i am aware america’s school system is weird too, but omg forgive me for not doing research for one ridiculous piece of fanart, is it completely necessary to comment on that instead of, oh i don’t know, the art itself? (and at least our system makes numerical sense ok)
