les mis stills

When the book from 1862 makes points about the judicial and prison system which are still relevant today

I know people like to make Enjolras taller than R because it makes him intimidating and literally unreachable

but consider

Enjolras is short and just the personification of this

i love scruffy grantaire as much as the next person but like he does come from money & he’s always trying to convince everyone that he’s in high demand, right? so like.. conceptually.. well-groomed pretty-boy dandy grantaire isn’t entirely off the table either, right,

Getting into the Les Mis fandom is so weird cause like
You start with the movie/musical and youre like “this is cool i love these characters” and then you go into the tag and everyone is talking about these 9 characters you have NEVER HEARD OF IN YOUR LIFE and talking about how gay it is and youre like “it cant be THAT gay” and suddenly youre reading a book thats thicker than your head.

Enjolras could you be ANY MORE obvious? :’^)

Foster Siblings Feuilly and Montparnasse
  • Feuilly is a few years older than Montparnasse, and has been living in the orphanage for as long as he can remember. He’s managed to channel that anger, jealousy, and sadness he used to feel into something positive
  • Montparnasse hasn’t
  • He’s just a kid who craves attention and care and reassurance
  • One day, Feuilly finds him crying alone in the bathroom, his knuckles blooded and his knees grazed, a little lost boy of 7. Some older kids say he looks too soft and needs to be roughened up. No matter how harshly Montparnasse tries to push Feuilly away, he collapses in Feuilly’s arms in tears
  • Feuilly patches up his scraped knees while Montparnasse is sitting on the cold and impersonal kitchen counter. Parnasse doesn’t say anything. He’s ashamed, for the most part. But grateful, too
  • Montparnasse does get rougher through the years. Better be on top of the foodchain than crying alone in a bathroom stall. No one makes comment on his soft face anymore.
  • But he does keep a soft spot for Feuilly. Montparnasse sometimes gives him stuff from his candy stash, while making other kids pay full price
  • Feuilly teaches Montparnasse things sometimes. Feuilly loves that, learning. He’s got a whole bunch of books under his bed and two library cards. Montparnasse, not so much. But he does like to listen
  • Feuilly being the closest thing to family Montparnasse has ever had
  • Feuilly having a fondness for that kid he won’t see as anything else than that seven year old he took under his wing

you just close your eyes, and count to ten / breath in twice, and open them

you know where to go you have been there before in your heart
