The Shortest Les Mis Books Ever Written

Postby Enjolvert » Mon Sep 03, 2012 2:51 pm

Okay, the whole idea of this game is that you put characters into a situation that is either the opposite of what happened to them, or they opposite to their personality as a person and make a title for a book out of it. For example:

Javert: "My criminal record"
Gavroche: "My essential guide to collecting ammo on the barricade"
Éponine: "The day Marius paid attention to me"

Your turn now. Take it away...
The law is unjust.

Enjolras: "I'm Sexy And I Know It"

And with shirtless Enjolras on the cover for effect.
I like to think everything whizzes by her head like sheep jumping over fences, and that Marius comes by every 3-4 sheep. And add scattered leaves flying around and rain falling too. And maybe a unicorn. Thus the insides of Éponine's mind.
