Does anyone remember this http://youtube.com/watch?feature=plpp&v=FoiTvq_fO8A video, Enjolras: Saint or Sinner, and all the names they call Enjolras? Mr. My Ponytail is Longer Than Yours indeed!

Someone should come up with a parody using names that are mangled or based off mispronunciations.

Jean Valjean would be Jean Bean, Fantine would be Fanta, Gavroche would be Gav-Roach, Javery would be Havert, etc.

:lol: :lol: Good thing I wasn't drinking from my mug of hot water when I read *that*

In a fanfic I read recently (modern day AU), Enjolras got the nickname Lips.

I hate fan fictions where Éponine is called Eppie. I'm writing a AU E/E modern day ship but in no way is her nickname going to be Eppie. Maybe it's just me but Ep or Eppie makes me think about an epidural.

Just read through one where Grantaire kept getting referred to as 'Aire. Which I guess is the author's intent to make him "R" without typing out "R," but for other characters to keep saying "'Aire" was even more obnoxious to me than when they say 'Taire.

What you call the characters in your own time and when you're referencing them outside of fic is whatever, call Enjolras "Lips," call Grantaire "'Taire." But man, when it's in fic and it's other characters, and Combeferre starts pulling out the "Enjy's..." *cringe*

To be fair, that was a modern day AU fic. I guess that license is permitted.

My friend and I have some really terrible ones, I will admit. For example, "Goldenboi", "Four-eyes", "Feyrac", "Feuilly-poo" and the worst is probably "Ferre-bear". The latter is only used because apparently my Combeferre resembles a teddy.

Also occasionally used is "Epanini"
