BEFORE YOU READ ANYTHING BELOW:
Hi, I'm Marseillaise. There used to be another, my friend who went by Psycho, but she doesn't write fanfic anymore. The majority of the below took place about two years ago. Thank you.
An Important Note on Derek-the-Whistle-Boy:
So, in the 2012 LM movie, there is an unnamed student on the barricade that whistles at the dawn of the second day, alerting the barricade to the oncoming soldiers and this giving them some precious minutes. We think he deserves more. So, we have named him Derek. If you think Derek deserves more recognition for saving the barricade, copy and paste this onto your profile.
IT'S A REVOLUTION!
I, RainWillMakeTheFlowersGrow, hereby pledge to leave a review for every fic that I enjoy, no matter how old, how many reviews it already has, or how many chapters it contains. I have joined the Review Revolution. Will you?
Do you hear the people sing...
(stolen from Rosebud5)
There be two (crazy awesome) (French revolutionaries) on this account!
We're not really French revolutionaries. She wishes. VIVE LA FRANCE!!!!!!!
But we're wiping our profile clean. Starting from scratch. Someone once said, "to start from scratch, you must first invent the universe." And we're not doing that. So technically...yeah.
I am called Marseillaise. Want to know WHY?!?!?
Um, no. Anyway, you guys can call her Mars. And I am Psycho, which is NOT short for Psychoheadkillerfreakonature, but ThePsychoticOne or PsychoIncarnate. Yeah.
Call me Mars and you shall be subjugated to the Song, my namesake. In fact, I thinasdk;lfja;slkdfj
I don't think subjugated means what you think it means. In fact, I don't think it's a word. Try subjected. subjugated. Subjugated. It's a word on spellcheck, hahaha. And it's in M-W C (R) D, EE, too. What do you know. Ya learn something new every day. I already knew that, haha.
But enough ridiculousness. Here is us.
We are obsessed with...
Les Misérables and A Tale of Two Cities!!!!!!
No, that's just you. We're obsessed with Les Mis. Period.
And Sweeney Todd.
NO. NOT. SWEENY. TODD. I. DISLIKE. SWEENY. TODD.
Spelling his name wrong isn't going to irritate me, I tell you. I'm stronger than that.
"It is a far, far better thing that I do than I have ever done; it is to a far, far better rest that I go than I have ever gone."
You can't beat that. haha.
We're going to go get a smoothie. Back in, like, a long time.
That took 25 minutes. ANYway.
Whose fics are whose
La de da.
Mine. So, the awesome ones. NOT! :)
A Band Led by Enjolras, Courfeyrac, Combeferre, and Feuilly
This is actually quite funny.
A Little Fall of Strange
BEWARE! ERP! ENJETTE! ERP!
At the End of the Year
She wrote this for me on my birthday, yay. ...I wrote this two months before your birthday...But for my birthday, right? I can think that, right?
Block Out the Light
These are quite sad. But good...
Captain Billy Joe Sebastian Mercutio Cullen de Chagny
I...um...This one's messed up, but hilarious. *bows*
Well, I thought it was funny.
...and I had so much fun I went and did one with Les Mis too...
Fleet Street Beaten
Confession: I reread this often and laugh every time. Which I DON'T see as egotistical because I write to please myself, so if I think it's funny, I'm happy.
Here is what I glean from the comment of yours that I erased.
1. You advise everyone to stay away from any piece of writing which contains this pairing.
2. This pairing is FREAKING CANON.
3. 1 plus 2=you hate Phantom of the Opera. Period. It disgusts you because it contains RC. You are going to steer clear of it for all your living days so that you may never have to encounter the horridness of this pairing again. Well, guess I'm not inviting you over when I get the 25th anniversary concert. :)
NO INVITE ME PLEASE I SHALL BRIBE YOU
Chillax. Of course you'll come. Who else would squee over Hadley and Ramin with me?
See? The squeeing was far more fun with two of us.
BOTH: HADLEYRAMINHADLEYRAMINHADLEYRAMIN...I wish I could sing like Sierra...
I didn't really like Meg though...I liked her on the soundtrack, but actually seeing her makes it clear that she was meant to play Little Red from Into the Woods and nothing else. HUSH GIRL MEG IS MY DREAM ROLE FROM PHANTOM. IT'S NOT FAIR, THERE SHOULD BE MORE MEZZO LEAD ROLES. RIGHT PEOPLE??? And jsyk, I love Ramin Karimloo. Like, a lot. He is on my list of Actors I Would Like To Date (the others are Aaron Tveit, George Blagden, Hadley Fraser, Alistar Brammer, and Hugh Skinner) I just meant the actress...and Hadley is miiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiine.
How to Survive Living With Someone Completely Obsessed With Les Mis
This is also funny.
Yes. I write Sweeney angst now. I'm THAT COOL.
No Place Like London
I'm so sorry, guys. I had to.
One Burst of Light
This is amazing, pardoning the last word. That kind of ruins the story. No, it sets the story apart.
The Blood of Angry Men is Delicious
Um. It's better than Twilight. Right, and that's *such* an accomplishment.
The Phantom of the Barricade
I HAVE A CAMEO IN THIS GUYS!! AND I GET TO SING...DUN DUN DUUUUN...LA MARSEILLAISE!!! WITH ENJOLRAS AND PROUVAIRE AND COMBEFERRE!!!!

Barricade Day post. Poem. I suck at poetry, but oh well. I tried. Oh, give me a break. It's amazing.
Angst, angst, angst...Marius post-barricade...I am really proud of this one.
I'll Love You Long After You're Gone
More angst! Marius/Eponine...

Marius and Cosette's Wedding Invitaion
Yep. Marius wants a Napoleon poster.
On Plot Bunnies and Bluejeans Valbluejeans
I have a plot bunny named Robespierre. Mine is called Marie Antoinette. Wait, I thought you guillotined Marie Antoinette the plot bunny. Is this a new one? No, I constantly guillotine her, but her head grows back.
Heh heh. This one's good.
Still Not Cured
Plot twist: Joly survived! And guys, in my translation of the Brick it doesn't mention him dying, so...DON'T CRUSH MY DREAMS, OKAY? Yes, but the fact remains that Victor Hugo killed Joly. Isabel Hapgood just forgot about him. SHUT UP.
That Final Night
Enjolras angst on June 5
The Flame That Never Dies
ta-da! My first-ever fanfiction. Enjonine!
They Did Not Die In Vain
Angst-filled character deaths...
Une Histoire de Deux Vivres
Les Mis/Tale of Two Cities crossover fic! I'm actually super proud of this, and it's my favorite that I've written
And both of ours!
Dear Fanfiction Writers (This one is mostly me...she gave up on it...) Sure did!
Write to a character. They shall reply.
The Adventure of the Candy Store
We went through a Sherlock Holmes phase in sixth grade and she found this in one of her old notebooks...Included are my misspellings and graphic violence. I also drew a picture, which she has described in sarcastic detail. Humph. I like my ending better. I like mine.
The Things that I am Not Allowed to do in the Musain
The things I am not allowed to do in the Musain. Like ask Bossuet what hair product he uses, or see if Jean Valjean wants to play Hide-and-go-seek.
Victor Hugo's Birthday Song
Exactly what it says on the tin.
And then there's A Legacy Continued, jointly written by Marseillaise and Darci the Thespian. :)
Another Tale/Les Mis crossover!!
Other Useless Information About Psycho and Marseillaise:
I get Enjolras on the Les Mis character tests. Repeatedly. Although Psycho argues that I am a cross between him and Courfeyrac. (Yeah...personality wise. I'm not...that. I just like to joke.)
She got Combeferre, which really wasn't a surprise at all. But she wanted Marius, because she is weirdly obsessed with him. I took the character tests back when I was obsessed with Enjolras. I wanted Enjolras. But...I still didn't get him.
I am in love with three fictional characters. All of them are dead because of the French Revolution. They are: Enjolras, Jean Prouvaire, and Sydney Carton. Enjolras and Prouvaire were *spoiler*. Carton was *spoiler*. And I'm not going into more detail (though I could) for fear of crying.
She loves Marius.
French rocks. That is true.
We live on Planet Earth. I live at Pigfarts. It's on Mars. ...Okay, Psychoheadkillerfreako'nature...whatever you say...
Specifically, in North America.
We are just teenage girls who are obsessed with things. I have OCD. She has Grammar Nazi-ness problems. It has a NAME, you know. It's called Editor's OCD. Yes. I named it.
Points of Interest:
1. Thenardier, contrary to popular belief, does not beat his children for fun. He's an opportunist, not a masochist. I mean, come on. Wasn't he evil enough for you?
2. Joly is a hypochondriac. Not a germophobe.
3. Jean Prouvaire does not wear flowers in his hair and he's actually quite fierce.
4. Courfeyrac doesn't come to the Café just to joke and talk about his collection. He's the center of the group. He cares about the revolution.
5. There is more to Grantaire than his drinking problem. There is more to Grantaire than his drinking problem.
6. Eponine isn't perfect. She's awesome, but it's because she's kind of insane. She lures Marius to the barricade to kill him, and she voluntarily works with Patron-Minette.
7. Cosette is perfect. That's it. Hugo didn't create her to be realistic, he created her to be a personification of light. I'm not saying she's the most interesting person, but she doesn't really deserve any hate.
Les Mis Character name research (stolen from Darci the Thespian, who actually did said research):
Enjolras- first name, means "to terrify" originated from Spain (a charming young man capable of being terrible)
Combeferre- first name, means a friend or brother in society
Courfeyrac- first name, Cour means "courtship"
Jean Prouvaire- it's a really religious name. Jean or Jehan means "God is gracious" while Prouvaire means "priest"
Feuilly- last name, based on a profession and comes from a craft
Bahorel- first name
Joly- first name, apparently it's a girls name and it originated from Spain, means "violet flower"
Lesgle- first name, Bossuet is a last name though, and L'Aigle means "eagle" The eagle symbolizes "lofty spirit, ingenuity, speed in comprehension, and discrimination in matters of ambiguity." There's the famous Jacques-Bénigne Bossuet, who was the Bishop of Meaux. (remember how Lesgle's L'Aigle de Meaux). Jacques gave famous speeches and sermons.
Grantare- first name, Taire means "shut up" and it also translates to Grand R.
Marius Pontmercy- Marius could be from either the Roman god of war (Mars) or from the Latin root Mas (maris=male)
Éponine- Originated from English (Epponina). Epponina's husband staged a failed rebellion and faked his death. They were caught and executed. The French version of the name is very revolutionary and it shows connotations of wifely virtue, patriotism and anti-imperialism.
Gavroche- literally, it means "full of rocks." Which means "stout-hearted" and "strong."
Azelma- means "stability, sameness, regular, rules, condition, responsibility, routine, frame, detail, order." Azelma does always follow her father's command.
Cosette- means "little thing." Euphrasie means "mirth," which is amusement.
Jean Valjean- Jean is "God is gracious." Valjean is possibly a deformation of Vlajean or Voilà le Jean (Here's Jean). Valjean is a practical name for the poor. Madeleine means "high tower" Ultime Fauchelevent, Ultime is "ultimate." Fauche means "reaping or thieving" and lever means "to life." Urbain Fabre, Urbain is "from the city" and Fabre is "kind, home-loving, hospitable and friendly."
Javert- last name, practical, logical
Fantine- means "child-like"
Thenardier- symbol of evil, hard, and greedy. Sounds about right.
