eerie crests les mis au
goddamn it. i couldnt just leave this alone could i? (im sorry it just. fits so damn well i had to get this out before i forgot it)
enjolras: malek. listen! i know malek is described as chill and enjolras is. definitely not chill, but! they’re both beautiful passionate boys who love their friends so shhhhh (enjolras is described as like. breathtakingly beautiful tho. “like marble” i think is was it says)
grantaire: dallas. okay. but. sad drunk artist hopelessly in love with beautiful boy (literally. in the the novel, the only reason grantaire is even with the revolution is because of enjolras. it says that enjolras is the only thing grantaire really believes in). also he’s described as being “not particularly nice to look at”
eponine: poppy. I don’t have a lot of reasons for this tbh? they’re both kinda salty/sarcastic, but also extremely passionate and loyal. though i could also see poppy as musichetta! (esp since no one else is musichetta so. she just doesn’t exist in this au i guess)
marius: parker. not sure why? idk marius and eponine are best friends and so are parker and poppy. I guess that means that poppy’s in love with parker is this au? marius is silly and sweet and a bit dramatic (seriously like. the first time he meets up with cosette, he almost does a 180 on his stance with the revolution, just because she’s cute and he’s like “oh shit i cant die NOW.” like. calm down kid)
cosette: sara. i know that logistically, sara and parker would never be in love, but i like to pretend that poppy was in love with both of them in this au so at least it works on some level. tbh….i don’t remember a lot abt sara, but cosette is sweet, adventurous, and a hard worker. also they’re both blonde and have great fashion sense so win/win
gavroche: hazel! hazel is the only little kid and i wanted to include her so. cute but dangerous little pup who knows a surprising amount of politics
joly: tyler! I haven’t actually read the book, so I don’t know a lot abt joly, but i know that he’s logical, kind, brave. (tbh most of the reason i picked him as tyler is cause joly’s dynamic with bousset reminds me of tyler and blake)
bousset: blake. which brings us to this! bousset likes to fight. he can be a bit reckless, and a bit of an asshole sometimes, but he means well.
combeferre: ari! combeferre is described as intelligent, passionate, and “an advocate for societal and scientific progress”
courfeyrac: phoebus! courfeyrac is described as having a “warm and radiant” personality. he is lively and a bit dramatic. he’s also very good friends with combeferre, marius, and enjolras respectively
feuilly: ben! feuilly is clever, loyal, and bright (literally all the barricade boys are described as loyal like. c'mon hugo, learn some other character traits) there’s really not much else about him, other than the fact that he makes fans for a living, and that he’s an orphan so
musichetta: paulina!! i take back what i said earlier cause i forgot polly! both beautiful, incredibly caring woc who would do anything for their friends. also? in the book, musichetta is really close with joly and bousset (idk if that works in this scenario but whatever)
sidenote: i really want someone to be jehan but. idk if anyone fits them? they’re like a poet, and they’re kind of shy, but also described as being fearless (i guess ari could’ve been jehan as well? i just wanted them to be combeferre so that they would still be with phoebus)
i guess that’s pretty much it? I couldn’t find anyone to fit any of the adult characters really, so i guess those’ll just go uncasted for now. Hope you liked it tho! sorry if i left anyone out!
also, im extremely exhausted. ive been doing this for like and hour and a half now.
