Well, I'm glad it could. Your voice does sound younger than you are, I think, but it's not in a bad way. And you do sound older when you sing, for some reason, I think. And I especially liked the snippet of On My Own at the end. Would love to hear you sing the whole thing, sometime. :D

When are we not formulating Marius theories? :roll: :wink: Though I'm amused by your latest one, Emjolras. :wink:


*facepalm* Just listened to the full recording for the first time, and how in the world did that little piece of On My Own make it in at the end?? :oops: I deleted that recording before I could even upload it...glad you liked it though.

Ah, yes, I get that a lot. :wink: I don't look my age either which is why I still occasionally get asked why I'm not in school still (graduated last year and college gets out sooner), do I want a kids menu (no, I'd like an adult menu please), or whether I need a kids ticket for things (no- actually yes, I would love to get in cheaper because you think I look twelve :wink: ). I've never thought I sounded older when I sing though, so thanks for that. :)

:lol: Well in that case, new Marius Theory:
You are Asian which is why your dad has relatives in Japan. :wink: This contradicts my own image for you, but it is a theory nonetheless.

You have a voice that is perfectly suited to you though. Em. :)

Younger voices have a cute and innocent vibe to them though Zelle :D

Oooorrr... Marius' relatives are some sort of ambassadors.


awww, thanks Zelle :D

:D Innocent until you get into the part of my head where I hold all my tragic fic ideas. :twisted: Just kidding. :wink:

That too....*goes off to ponder*

Oh, whoops, it wasn't meant to be there? :oops: Well, it sounded very good all the same, and I'm glad it was.

And yes, I could see how that would happen, you poor thing. But sometimes I think it would be much better to look younger than older. It's fantastic for acting, that's for sure.

Your voice is suited to you, Emjolras. And I said I was amused, so yes, I suppose you could say that I like it, but more just amused. :wink:

Ha, you guys are hilarious.
All right, I will say this (yay, info!), no, I am not Asian. At all. Which is very ironic, because from that post, it totally sounds like I am. :lol: Very long story as to why I have relatives in Japan and my mother knows Japanese.

Or innocent until you get to the part where she wants to add male prostitution into the fanfic. Kidding, Zelle... :wink:

You write tragic fics so beautifully :twisted: RIP Enjolras... at least he lives again in freedom in the garden of the Lord :twisted:

*ponders Marius' identity*

Thanks Marius :D I'm glad you liked it!

Thanks Em. :) Honestly though, my fics hardly even scratch the surface of tragic compared to some I've read.

:oops: Well thank you. :wink:

It'll definitely be good for acting when I'm a bit older and finally look the age I actually am now. :wink: Until then I get to play little kids.

Aw, darn. :wink: Well this narrows the theories down a little though. The quest for info continues!

:shock: :lol: Bahahaha! Yes, or until then. :twisted:

No, no, Zelle, that's why it's good! They always want people who can play little kids, because they can look like it and also follow directions really well, work longer hours, and have that much acting skill under their belts. Or, at least for film. :oops: I suppose I don't know how it is, for theatre.

Well, I would wish you luck, but I don't think I will. :wink: Though you and Gervais, Gervais especially, you're all such sleuths, aren't you?

Yep. Until then. :mrgreen: At least it's an interesting idea.

I look young also Zelle :lol: on the campaign trail voters are like "are you 13??" :roll:

I'm with Marius on the matter :D

If I was in acting i'd probably get stuck playing revolutionary leaders or something all the time :shock: 8)

Have we all been mistaken for being years younger than our actual age?!
People still seem to think I'm a seventh grader. And are astonished when I inform them that I'm fifteen. Seriously. No one seems to know how to judge people's ages. :roll:

I hadn't thought about the film implications. That's a good point there. :) I guess for me it's just frustrating because there are roles in theatre that I think I'd fit really well that I won't get because I look too young or I'm too short.

*puts on deerstalker* Eventually we'll figure something out. :wink:

Glad you all like it. :D I'm honestly really looking forward to Gervais feedback on it when she gets back from DC.

*fist bumps back*

Maybe this is a reason people like Enjolras--- we all have been mistaken as younger by looks?



in all seriousness, I find Enjolras to be the most relatable Les Mis character...

Ah, I see, that would be frustrating. For me, it was always exasperating to audition and then not get cast because they'd chosen a kid my age who looked half it. So I guess we got opposite ends of it. :lol:

Ah, but Emjolras, that's the fun of acting. :wink: You don't need to always be something you are or want to be. Sometimes, it's so much more fun not to be.

Well, who knows? :wink: *puts on deerstalker and joins you for the sheer fun of it*

Yes, I'm looking forward to her opinions, too! And once she's back, we can all plan the barricade scenes.

I relate to most of the Amis for different reasons, to be honest.
I was listening to a podcast of a Boston writer, and he started talking about how libraries were why he started writing. He went into this big spiel about how libraries were the path to education and education was how to make the world a better place and have more politically informed and active youth, and half of me was saying, My thoughts exactly! and the other half was going, You sound just like Combeferre!

Every time he imitated his family's Irish accents, I melted. :D

That is awesome AJ! :D Sounds like Combeferre :)

My dad was listening as well, I don't think he realized I was fangirling like crazy right next to him. I bit the pillow I was laying on to keep from freaking out over the blatant Ferreness. :D
