Yo Valjean--

and to this day, she's glided on
always home but so far away
like a word misplaced
nothing said, what a waste

I shall repeat here that this is the best use of this meme of all time.

OF ALL TIME.

I've been meaning to make it all week and finally got around to it.

:D I'm pretty pleased with it, really.

This is approaching brilliance at an unusually fast rate.


(And, oh, what with this book's infinite amount of competing Crowning Moments of Awesome, there are many more to be had. I propose - 'Yo Thénardier-at-the-Gorbeau-ambush, I'm really happy for you [...], but Valjean had one of the best TA-DAH, IT IS I moments in the whole book!'.)

I love this.

It has made my week.

It shall live as a printout in my office by my computer. So I may enjoy it every day.

For once, I don't think Kanye's hyperbole goes far enough. I'd delete the words "one of" and add "and musical"!

It's pretty impressive, given how many death scenes there are in the book. BFF was asking about Montparnesse in one of my pics the other day. As I waxed lyrical, she said "let me guess - he dies like 99% of the characters? Particularly the cool ones?" She had me there - I had to admit Montparnasse is an exception to my rool of cool.

Oh, but it's only too easy to imagine what becomes of Montparnasse. Either he gets chouriné by one of his fellow miscreants, or he gets caught and comes down with a fièvre cérébrale--either way he's going to go meet the meg des megs sooner rather than later.

(Yes, I have been reading Mystères de Paris. *g* Sue had fun with argot too. Chouriné = stabbed, come down with a brain fever = get sentenced to death, meg des megs = god.)

Oh, yes, Enjolras' death in the musical is probably the most striking part of the whole show (well, the original staging anyway), but his book death scene was infinitely better and so I went with book anyway. XD I had a lot of trouble finding an appropriate picture for this -- none of the illustrations of Valjean's Death from the books that I could find were big enough or, well, nice-looking enough to have Kanye plopped into them.

Can I also say the title of this thread makes me laugh on its own?

Thats beautiful. I laughed so hard I cried. Permission to post on facebook so all my former cast mates can see it? I'll totally credit you.

That is inspired! You've made my day. My first thoughts: "Oh God! I can't believe I actually agree with KANYE WEST for once!"

SO FUNNY. I laughed seriously aloud for five whole minutes. FIVE.

I don't know why, but when I caught a glimpse of this thread I misread it as "Yo Soy Valjean" -- which of course sent me into an apoplexy of giggles. :lol:
