somewhere inside, i'm pretty sure we all have a miserable secret to share.

please do NOT be offended by any of these posts; everyone has the total right to their own opinions.

overall, I really liked the les mis movie, but when I watch les mis on the stage, valjean and javert are my two favorite characters. when I watch them as played by hugh jackman and russell crowe, I really couldn’t care less about them
I have a terrible pet peeve about the fandom having an incredibly Anglo-centric view of the nineteenth century, particularly in regard to homosexual laws and religion. I don’t care how pedantic this makes me, please try to actually understand your setting and Hugo’s influences and undertones.
I really want to play a ‘lovely lady’ I don’t know why. I don’t find it to be a glamorous role, because it isn’t. I find Lovely Ladies one of the saddest scenes along with Master of The House because it talks about how over run by capital the human race has become and how desperate we are for it. I find these two scenes most relevant to our society today which makes me even more sad.
To me, Eponine is a really overrated character. Her whole character revolves around the fact that she has a crush who doesn’t like her back, it all seems very high school drama to me and doesn’t carry half as much weight as the other story lines. Plus On My Own is so over done.
I couldn’t stand Matt Lucas as Thenardier. His scratchy voice, random squeaks when he was singing and unnecessary ad-libs were so grating and he played the character as a bumbling, over-the-top comic farce who couldn’t lead a toy dog on wheels never mind a feared gang of criminals.
My OTPs are Eponine/Gavroche and Fantine/Cosette. Lesbian incest is a turn on and I’m surprised most people don’t ship it. I guess we really are different from the Frozen fandom. Also, Eproche could be possible because as lower class people, they could be desperate and would want each other out f desperation. God, someone make a fanfic out of this.
