les mis moments that break my heart: 1/?

combeferre, bahorel & the rest of les amis trying to stop courfeyrac going after gavroche

“Why does the les mis fandom obsess over les amis when they have no content and aren’t even the main characters???”

i mean idk about you but i can relate much more to young people suffering at the hands of society than i can about an old dude who yanked a child from the woods and carries wigs in his pockets

Little Les Mis™ Things

-the beginnings of the barricade songs
-“EVEN A WHORE WHO HAS GONE TO THE BAD WON’T BE HAD BY A RAT!!!”
-Thenardier calling Cosette by the wrong name
-“Little he knows, little he sees”
-the three part counterpoint at the end of a heart full of love
-the three part counterpoint at the end of a heart full of love reprise/everyday
-“Thinks he’s quite a lover, but there’s not much there”
-when the “JAVERT!"s match up in the confrontation
-the feeling in your chest when everyone starts singing in the finale

Les amis de l’ABC

The two pages of my portfolio’s project featuring the revolutionary boys.
I am actually not very happy with ALL of the designs, I would have loved to make a larger exploration with each of them… but considering they are like the “extras” in the project (despite the love I feel for them, which is only surpassed by my love for Gavroche) I can’t expend more time on them. 

The second pic was intended to be a final illustration but my teacher almost screamed (?) when I said I wanted to finish it. Like “NO. It’s great like this”
I’m not that sure but ok (?)
