One of my favorite scenes in the Brick, which I'd totally forgotten about before my latest reread, is the one where Montparnasse tries to jump Valjean and ends up on the ground with Socially Awkward St. Valjean giving him a twenty-minute rant about how awful prison is. So when I saw [personal profile] voksen's NPT prompt about a fix-it fic where Montparnasse and Valjean interact after the barricades, it turned out I had MANY THOUGHTS about these two and how they might interact.

I started typing up all my thoughts, and then I realized I should just give you the fic:

The Perils of Walking in the Rue de l'Homme-Armé (3690 words) by raspberryhunter

Summary:In which Montparnasse finds that the perils of walking in the Rue de l'Homme Arme are twofold: first, that one might begin to think; and second, that one might come across a weak old man.
genarti: Valjean holding the Bishop's candlesticks, looking mulish and bewildered, with text "I have bought your soul for God." ([les mis] the wages of sin)
[personal profile] genarti
This is a crosspost from tumblr, edited slightly to be a coherent single post instead of a reblogging reply. (There's a thing called Brick!Club which is people reading through the book, one chapter per week, and blogging about their thoughts and meta and so forth; this comes from that.) The question that spurred it was about the fact that Valjean stays (reluctantly) in the honeymoon suite at the Thénardiers' inn when he comes to retrieve Cosette. The gist was (from [tumblr.com profile] vivelafizz and [tumblr.com profile] pilferingapples) along the lines of "Oh geez, does that mean what I think it means, if so that's UNNECESSARY AND SKEEVY, HUGO."

And then I waxed long-winded in reply, and thought it might be worth porting over here too:

Genderswap

[personal profile] miss_morland
I normally don't pay much attention to genderswap (nothing against it, just not a trope that grabs me), but it occurred to me that it might be interesting to discuss what various Les Mis characters would be like if genderswapped -- they are all shaped by their circumstances, but how would different circumstances (due to different gender roles) affect them? Would they still be recognisable as their canon selves?

For instance, 63!Valjean would not have been sent to a bagne. Would she end up spending 19 years in prison? Would she be able to build a Madeleine-like life for herself with the aid of the Bishop's silver? (I'm not up on the French rules for unmarried women owning property during this period.) 63!Fantine is hard for me to imagine to begin with, because Fantine's storyline is so specifically about the unfair way society treats unmarried women -- though I think I could believe in a story about 63!Fantine being a poor youth taking care of his little sister and being forced to become a male prostitute, if done well.

As for 63!Javert, I can see her turning into a typical stern spinster -- the sort who keeps a sharp eye on troublemakers and delinquents in her neighbourhood -- earning her daily bread in some low-paying but honest job. I'm not sure it would occur to her that a woman could join the police, because Javert is so preoccupied with following the norms of "respectable society"; the thought of a woman passing as a man and doing a man's work would probably shock her, though I think it's definitely an interesting scenario.

These are just some examples, though I'd love to see others. Also, these are just some hasty thoughts; feel free to disagree or elaborate!

Since I know there are people who enjoy fic about minor characters (as I do), I thought I'd post links to the three fics I've written about Jean Valjean's sister, Jeanne. They are loosely connected, but each can be read on its own, I think.

Since [personal profile] skygiants mentioned it, here is my Marius story:

Title: A previous near-miss with history

Summary: Marius lends Courfeyrac 60 francs and inadvertently provokes jollity. (1884 words)

Featuring Marius, Courfeyrac, and incidental Bossuet. You should also not believe [personal profile] skygiants, by the way, hers is better than mine!

[personal profile] skygiants
Well, after last week's discussion of Marius and the revolution, I also have made an attempt at outlining how Marius might all unknowingly aid la resistance. (Although [personal profile] elsane's is much better. What is the etiquette about linking other people's fic over here?)

Marius Rises in the Esteem of the Revolution
Characters: Marius, Courfeyrac, Enjolras
Summary: It is not Marius' fault that his friends mix their metaphors.

Has someone somewhere made a comprehensive list of which parts of the musical that are repeated and echo previous tunes? (Valjean's song and Javert's suicide for instance)

Some of us were recently discussing Jean Valjean, and it occurred to me to ask possibly the most important question that has ever been asked in fandom:

Who would win in a fight: Batman or Jean Valjean?

(Assume an equivalent tech level - either Batman is limited to his versions of 1830s tech or Valjean has access to modern stuff.)



...to start I think Valjean wins on the metrics of both tragic backstory and identity issues.

skygiants: Enjolras from Les Mis shouting revolution-tastically (la resistance lives on)
[personal profile] skygiants
So I keep wondering why Enjolras expects Marius to show up and be helpful in the Barriere du Maine scene; after all, we're told that after the Great Napoleon Debacle, Marius essentially storms off in a huff and never goes back to revolutionland again. Also, he is Marius. Myself, I can think of about four reasons:

1. Unreliable/ambiguous narrator: Marius had been hanging out with the gang before Napoleongate way more than the text implies.

2. Marius has not been hanging out with the gang, but Courfeyrac trusts him enough that he asks him to run errands sometimes when it would be useful to have an unfamiliar face show up, which he does because of the debt he feels he owes Courfeyrac, and Enjolras interprets this as Marius being way more interested in revolution than he actually is. This would actually be an interesting fic-premise -- Marius Pontmercies his way through a revolutionary errand he knows nothing about; hijinks ensue!

3. Enjolras really is JUST THAT DESPERATE. Maybe all the redshirt revolutionaries have gone home for the summer holidays. Or are dying of cholera.

4. Enjolras is not actually talking about our Marius at all, but about a friend of his named Jean or Pierre or Guifford Marius. Jean Marius has been very lax about showing up to meetings recently and we are VERY DISAPPOINTED in him.

I've got a weekend family thing happening, so naturally I want to bring the Brick with me and hopefully finish the parts of it I haven't read yet. I've been reading the Hapgood translation on Project Gutenburg, but that's an ebook. I've got the following dead tree translations on hold at the library and was wondering which is considered the best/you like better?

  • Charles E. Wilbour
  • Julie Rose
  • Norman Denny

I have just conquered Waterloo!

What Hugo seems to be trying to say in these chapters, as best I can tell (in that he says it outright over and over in slightly different words, although this being Hugo he also says many other things some of which are contradictory) is that the outcome of the battle was due, not to one general being better than another or one army being stronger, but due to the fact that Fate had turned against Napoleon (fate/destiny/luck/the will of God/natural law/the Force/narrative causality/the balance of the universe/whatever you want to call it.)

And ignoring if I can the question of actual reality - which apparently has only a loose relationship to Hugo's Waterloo anyway - I am fascinated by this argument, and especially the way we get it right after Valjean's desperate ride to Arras. )

Anyway! I have many thoughts on Waterloo! Does anyone have any thoughts on Waterloo to share?

(Also other people should post other stuff to this comm or else it'll just be me going on about Waterloo until I'm worse than Victor Hugo! I can post on Waterloo all week if you make me. I HAVE THE MATERIAL.)

This comm is officially open for posts!

Come one, come all. The hope is that this will be a broad-ranging home for Les Mis fandom on DW, since we don't seem to have one; we can split off side comms if it gets enough traffic to warrant it (and anyone who wants to make a side comm should always feel free to, obviously), but at the moment pretty much anything goes, within the loose guidelines mentioned on the profile. (Basically: don't be a jerk to anybody on the comm, and link to fanworks rather than posting the whole thing here.)

I'm [personal profile] genarti, and I'm the mod in that I'm the one who started the comm, but I'm hoping this isn't going to be the kind of community that really needs much modding work. If you've joined the comm, you can post to it, so please do!
