les mis references are the best

i made my best friend watch newsies and she still couldnt remember the characters so now she just refers to them as:

- blue dude (jack kelly)
- les mis (les jacobs)
- the dude they took away in the end of act 1 (crutchie)
- cigar man (race)
- rich boy (davey)
- tiny red (spot)

Reasons why you should see Something Rotten! on Broadway:


  • Christian Borle’s bare chest and arms
  • Brian D’Arcy James having a tap battle with Christian Borle (that is not a typo, btdubs – they legitimately have a a TAP battle)
  • Heidi Blickenstaff as the world’s first feminist
  • John Cariani and Kate Reinders being too damn adorable for words
  • Christian Borle’s bare chest and arms
  • the lyric “don’t be a penis, the man is a genius”
  • Brad Oscar and the ensemble performing a giant meta-as-fuck musical number about the concept of musical theatre (complete with references to Les Mis and Avenue Q and literally every popular musical ever) that lasts ten minutes and prompts an extended standing ovation in the middle of the first act
  • “Omelette: The Musical” – the best musical-within-a-musical since “Springtime for Hitler” and “Joseph Smith American Moses”
  • a genuinely funny and clever script and lyrics
  • catchy-as-the-plague songs
  • Casey Nicholaw’s direction and choreography on point as usual
  • THE FACT IT IS A WHOLLY ORIGINAL MUSICAL NOT BASED ON ANY PREVIOUSLY EXISTING SOURCE MATERIAL
  • Christian Borle’s bare chest and arms
  • Christian Borle in general
WIP - Snowballs and Sheer Luck (Lin-Manuel x Reader)

Summary: You got hit with a snowball out of the blue and universal law states that you must return fire

Word Count: 1,420

Warnings: Language.

A/N: I wrote this ages ago (during that one snowstorm, this was actually the original snowfic I wrote) and then abandoned it. But here’s an abandoned fic for everyone who was so kind and so understanding about me being MIA.
_____________________________

“Fuck you, man! I have to meet with Sherry and Greg still. Some of us have to be responsible adults!” Tommy laughed at Lin who had insisted on tagging along as Tommy walked to this meeting. He also insisted on detouring through the park to appreciate the large patches of untouched snow and Tommy was always one to oblige his more romantic-minded friend.

It was always a given to budget more time than usual when Lin tagged along on commutes, but the snow made it ten times worse. Lin had decided that his source of entertainment during their journey was to launch snowballs at Tommy, making himself burst into a fit of laughter every time one met his target. When Tommy had agreed to let Lin join him on his trek through the snowy city he had also accepted the possibility that he would not reach the meeting with his clothes as dry as when he left for it. But that did not mean that he appreciated Lin’s attack.

“You’re gonna be late anyways, might as well let me have my fun” Lin’s laughter rang through the park before he bent down to pack another snowball - this one larger than all the others.

TWIN AU

Born from a typo made by scorpdaddy
With contribution by mynameissteverogers

Grantaire with a Twin sister no one knows about until she just appears.

AND EVERYONES LIKE “???? Whos the hot girl who looks like R”

No one bothers to ask Grantaire and just assumes it’s another of his hookups

They don’t actually meet her until later

SHE DOES THE THING WHERE SHE DRESSES LIKE R

SHE TUCKS HER HAIR UP INTO A BEANIE

AND DOES THE MAKE UP STUBBLE

TRIES TO DO AN IMPRESSION OF HIS VOICE

No one notices it’s not him until R actually shows up. He introduces her as his little twin sister.

Enjolras looks excited/turned on/horrified

Just “WOW TWO RS”

BUT ALSO “OHMYGOD IM GONNA LOSE IT I CANT EVEN HANDLE ONE”

Their parents both named them R names

So like

Ranae and Rene

“This is my sister Ranae”

“… R your name is Rene..”

“.. Different spelling..”

“Your parents.. Not that smart..”

“Yeah also considering we were in the same classroom until 5th grade just made it even worse”

They both go by R too which makes it even more difficult.

They end up going by
R (Grantaire because he’s the oldest)

and

r (Ranae because youngest)

R and r being little shits during meetings

r teaching R about fruity alcohol drinks and which ones get you drunk faster

They end up a giggling mess laughing at the tiny umbrellas

Ranae and Enjolras becoming like best friends

Ranae still has that fire to her that R lost and Enjolras and her are fucking horrific together
They spur each other on
Like ranae is the one that’s like “Come on Enjolras it’s just ONE more shot”

And he and r end up dancing on the bar top
Ranae can’t dance for shit unless it’s ballet which she is amazing at

So her and Enjolras look like dads at prom

R is Fucking crying laughing

Enjolras drunkenly singing “Best Friend’s Brother” at the top of his lungs
And Courf is just like “I fucking knew that asshole watched Nickelodeon with me when he said he was ‘studying’”

RANAE AND R DANCING TOGETHER WHEN THEYRE BOTH PLASTERED AND ARE FUCKING AMAZING UNTIL R TRIES TO LIKE TWERK IN THE MIDDLE OF IT OR SOMETHING AND RANAE IS LAUGHING SO HARD SHE FALLS OVER

R and r doing ballet together
And its hypnotic to watch

r having the most ridiculous crush on eponine

PINING R AND RANAE

GAY DRUNK LOVE SONGS

R and r THEY DO THE BEST RENDITION OF UPTOWN FUNK

R is jealous Ranae is best buds with Enjolras but doesn’t mind that they usually hang at his place since Ranae and him magically live together now and their apartment is a million times better than when it was just R

r may or may not have had a threesome with Ferre and Courf and no one can confirm or deny the rumor

People would actually start referring to ranae as petitaire just as a fucking joke
“Oh hahahaha grand r and petit r”

And theyre like

“no exactly This is how people told us apart at school”

Renae has undoubtedly the best eyebrows on the face of the planet

WHENEVER R IS DEPRESSED r JUST SO HAPPENS TO BE TOO

COMFORTING SIBLING CUDDLES

So theyre basically one soul split into two people

Just

Grantaire with a twin sister Ranae

Masterlist


You shifted your laptop and notebook into your left arm and pulled hard at the heavy door to your favorite study spot: Jitters.

You readjusted the strap of your backpack and headed toward the counter to order your drink. The Barista’s back was toward you, so you patiently waited for her turn around and finally order your more than needed coffee.

“Hi, what can I get– (Y/N)?!” The barista exclaimed. Your eyes widened in excitement.

“Iris! You work here?! Why have I never seen you before?! How are you?” You said happily.

“I’m great! I’m so happy to see you! Now we can finally figure out when we can have that catch-up date!” She said, completely forgetting her job.

“Yes, totally! But, um, I actually have a lot to do right now so-” You began.

“Yeah, of course! Wait here, I’ll give you a copy of my hours!” Iris ran into the ‘employees only’ door. Happy to see your friend again, you patiently waited for her to come back and take your order.

While you quietly stood at the counter, a tall young man walked straight in front of you and leaned over the counter.

A date at the Comédie Française sounds like the best fucking thing wtf

I know right??? Like, my idea of a perfect date is museum - diner (with the things we saw at the museum for conversation starters) - and going to see a play afterwards if the diner went well!

With this guy we went walking in the Luxembourg gardens and he somehow didn’t picked on the obvious les Mis reference and was completely oblivious to my miserable pining self. Ugh.

Okay.

Okay, so I’ve seen Les Mis/Hamilton crossovers like nobody’s business. I’ve seen at least references to Legally Blonde/Hamilton, even Heathers/Hamilton.

You know what AU I need right now?

Wicked and Hamilton.


Freaking tell me right now that Elphaba and Alexander would not be best friends. Excitable little outcast nerds who refuse to throw away their shot. Consider Galinda and the Schuyler sisters. Especially Galinda and Angelica. 

I WANT THE FOUNDING FATHERS TO TEACH MY SWEET OZIANS HOW TO RAP OKAY.

Somebody talk Wicked/Hamilton crossovers to me please I may not live to see the light of another day if this spark is not fended into a flame.

anonymous asked:

Hiii Athena! When you can, could you make some headcanons about like modern AU! With stuff about like Madame houcheloup & les amis? TYSM!

Madame Hucheloup! For Sure! (sorry for the delay!! Please accept my grovelling and cuddles! <3 <3 <3)

  • She always pretends to be annoyed by them (“You damn boys are taking over my cafe and driving away my customers again!”) But she’s actually very protective of them and if any of her customers give them trouble she’s the first to “accidentally” spill hot coffee in their lap
  • Basically adopts Feuilly. She lets him crash on the big couch in the corner when his flat is being overrun by pests or he’s just too tired to go home. She also let’s him pick up a shift or two at the cafe when his hours get cut back at his regular job
  • She’s definitely playing matchmaker with Les Amis when they’re too stubborn to get together with each other. 
    “Oh there was the cutest boy in here before hitting on your bespectacled friend, Courf dear.”
    “There- What?!?”
    “Don’t worry dear, I made sure the napkin he wrote his number on found its way into my pocket instead.”
    “Thank you…”
  • Gets incredibly offended when Enjolras refers to them as her regulars.
    “Regulars pay for their coffee, dear. And don’t get me started on your boyfriends bar tab!”
    “He- Grantaire’s not my boyfriend!”
    “Funny you automatically assume I was talking about Grantaire.”
  • When any of them are having issues with their own parents she swoops in to be honourary mum. 
  • Basically incredibly kind hearted but fierce on the surface. Give the best D+M’s and the greatest hugs. 
  • Let’s just say Les Amis don’t keep coming back to the same cafe for the coffee.

Thanks for reading!


If you can, I would appreciate a signal boost! (But I won’t be offended if you don’t, I don’t reblog things much either.)

for those concerned about it??

Right, so. I don’t normally do posts like this but I was requested to in order to hopefully clear up some confusion!

It’s come to my attention that there’s been some misunderstanding going around about something Nakta has said months ago on Show K-pop.

To briefly go over what happened (and the video is here, the whole thing starts roughly 27 minutes in), they’re filming things inside of the dorm– and it’s Nakta, Sangdo, Gohn, Yano, etc ec, and Sangdo, keeps trying to steal Doldol (Nakta’s stuffed animal thing) from him (he does it nearly the entire episode), and eventually just starts taking random things like one of their neck pillows, and in turn one of them (I can’t tell who) refers to him as Jean Valjean, a character from Les Miserables, because the character is known for being a thief.

The controversy lies when a few seconds after, Nakta tells Sangdo to “go back to your country”. 

Now, don’t get me wrong, I understand how that can be misconstrued. Since debut he’s been marketed as the “darker skinned one” and “looking” like he could be black or what have you. So it seems that some people took this to mean something along the lines of “you look black, so go back home”.

But considering the context, I 100% believe that that is not at all what he was referring to. There was no indication whatsoever that he had been talking about his skin nor was there anything previously referencing to it. If I’m not mistaken, Les Mis is set somewhere in France– hence, go back to your own country. 

That being said, I have absolutely no problem calling a spade a spade. There are a good plenty of offensive things that go around in the Korean entertainment industry, but I don’t believe this to be one of them! So I hope that helps clear some things up! i am not the best at wording things at times but I hope I got the point across? uwu

TRIUMVIRATE INTERNET FRIENDS AU

when enjolras, combeferre, and courfeyrac met each other at age 15 they didn’t know each other by name or anything other than username. they instead knew each other as fir3andfr33dom, xxdancedragon32xx, and toppercentmothim playing world of warcraft

they met by absolute and total coincidence on a quest and managed to survive by grace of god and a convenient spell thanks to the paladin, courfeyrac. they decided that forming a guild would be the best method of approach considering that basically they all suck on their own and have a better success rate with each other around. so they begin to establish times as to when they can meet and begin to talk on messengers as well beyond just the game itself. there you’ll find them bantering about blood elves and the importance of freeing races whether they are fictional or not. it becomes a method of stress relief and motivation to finish work on time in order to play sometimes long into the night.

(combeferre’s mother has opened his door at 4 AM and found him wide-eyed and staring at his screen without once laying his head to rest on a school night and that’s nearly unheard of when it comes to her son)

(courfeyrac’s father has caught him screaming at his computer screen half past midnight, “son what are you doing?” “I CAN’T TALK RIGHT NOW DAD THE GREATER GOOD IS AT RISK.” so his father just shuts the door very slowly in acceptance)

(enjolras eats his dinner exceptionally fast and runs off to his room with haste without a complaint in order to catch the two online in time for their game and it’s extremely unusual for enjolras to not pick a fight with his parents over something childish)

as they grow up they become more and more interested not only on the game but also each other and talk more frequently just about everything rather than the severity of the mission the game once gave them. hell they even introduce themselves by name finally and it’s not just the game anymore, it’s friendship. they start with audio chats and laugh at each other’s voices that they’re hearing for the first time in four years, they talk as they do homework, or find news articles they don’t agree with. 

they eventually video chat and just look at each other for the longest time and finally can’t carry on a normal night without it
and they fall a bit more in love even if none of them are saying a damn thing and they probably eventually meet up when they’re in college somewhere so dorky and silly and it’s the best okay they probably all transfer to the same school and become even more inseparable
