okay but Jehanparnasse Hogwarts AU in which Montparnasse is an animagus who turns into a black cat

  • Did he go through all that trouble just to be able to get around the castle incognito and hear all the juicy gossip? It’s more likely than you think.
  • That also means he can sneak into the Ravenclaw common room to sleep on Jehan’s bed. He just waits for someone to answer the riddle and slithers his way in the tower
  • Everyone is like “Oh, Jehan, I didn’t know you had a black cat, what a cutie!” while Jehan is all awkward like “Yeah… He’s totally… my cat…sure.”
  • Enjolras can’t figure out why Jehan’s black cat always glowers at him and tries to claw his face off if he comes closer than 5 feet from it
  • Human Parnasse melts into a puddle when Jehan plays with his hair
  • Parnasse doesn’t snore in his sleep. He purrs.
  • Parnasse having to excuse himself in the middle of a lesson because there’s a furrball stuck in his throat
fun things to do during a car ride
  • put on your broadway playlist of all your fave tunes from all your favourite shows and *perform* along
  • add unnecessary badly-executed vibrato to every song you can
  • sing songs with the voice of the wrong character (ex: you and me (but mostly me) from the book of mormon as javert is a personal favourite)
  • if you’re going out just put out tonight from rent on loop
  • forget to sing some parts because the singer is doing that™ and you’re transcending your earthly body (mildly unsafe if you’re driving)
an easy guide to musical theater songs
