les mis moments that break my heart: 1/?

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

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

bonus:
-gavroche singing the women’s part of drink with me in the les mis movie

“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

Les Amis as Cards Against Humanity Cards

Enjolras: the violation of our most basic human rights
Courfeyrac: liberté. égalité. beyoncé.
Combeferre: Harry Potter erotica
Grantaire: some douche with an acoustic guitar
Jehan: bees?
Feuilly: a grown man crying at a movie
Joly: embryonic stem cells
Bossuet: the World’s Worst Human Being
Bahorel: the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Marius: the “shy kid in the corner”
Eponine: the feminist agenda
Cosette: Girls Gone Wild
Musichetta: aggressive Legolas hair flips
Montparnasse: smoking 1000 cigarettes just so you can sound like a dalek when you talk

Just consider Enjolras sucking at replying to texts. He is always so busy with all the work and the important things he has to do that he kind of postpones replying to his personal texts and ends up only answering one or two weeks later. The Amis kind of give up on texting him and just call him instead when they have to talk about something serious.
Consider Grantaire being the one person that Enjolras replies to right away because he always has to have the last word during their discussions and he won’t give Grantaire the satisfaction of not answering and making him think that Enjolras has run out of arguments. Sometimes, they text each other up to 3 in the morning, because neither of them want the other to have the last word.
(Grantaire feels a little bit special for being the only one Enjolras actually texts back).

‘Average book talks about the Parisian sewage system for 50 pages’ factoid is actually a statistical error - Victor Hugo’s 'Les Miserables’ which talks about the Parisian sewage system for 5000 pages is an outlier and should not have been counted.
