Les Mis Backwards

Postby Lara » Wed Apr 28, 2010 9:42 pm

This is a game my friends and I play with some books and movies and whatnots. Basically, describe the plot of a story if you were watching it backwards. Like if you were rewinding a movie or something. So, Jaws is a movie where a shark throws up so many people that they have to open a beach.

I decided that, with the many plots in Les Mis, it would be very interesting to see how it would turn out to do specific characters and scenes. GO WILD.

My favorites so far:

Javert emerges from the Seine and, after being crazy for a little bit, realizes that he needs to hunt down Valjean.

Fantine buys hair and teeth.

(musical based) Javert and Valjean reassemble a chair and then sing to each other.

:lol: :lol:

Thenardier comes back from America, talks to Marius, and decides to go into the sewers...

Enjolras makes a giant furniture wall and goes out to get the city of Paris to help him.

(combination of book and musical)

Gavroche picks up bullets and decides that stealing soap is better instead

Fantine travels to Montfermeil, gets money off the innkeepers, picks up her child Cosette, moves to Paris and reunites with her lover. Awww.

Marius sees Éponine leaving his room and decides to leave Gorbeau House and move back to Courfeyrac's apartment, then back to his grandfather's place.

Musical based: the dead bodies come back to life, writhing in slow motion.

Enjolras and R are bestest friends who have a big fight and wind up hating each other seconds before they die.

Valjean steals a delirious Marius from M. Gillenormand's house, stuffs him in a fiacre with Javert, then carries Marius for miles through a smelly sewer so that he can dump him on a barricade piled high with dead bodies...

Jean Valjean gets out of prison and gives someone a loaf of bread.

The amis tie up a random guy and are prepared to shoot him when Gavroche arrives and informs them that to top it all off he's a spy.

Marius and Cosette watch Valjean become a zombie, then they get a divorce. Marius gradually gets sicker and sicker until he is nearly dead, so Javert helps Valjean drag him to the barricades after leaping out of the river. Marius miraculously recovers from near death, then watches all his friends, Gavroche, Mabeuf and Éponine become zombies. Marius graciously takes a powder keg and a torch away from the barricades, making the National Guard suddenly start attacking. Marius starts hangin out with Cosette again, but then ignores her after seeing her ankle for the first time, vowing never to wear his nice suit into the park again.

Javert scolds a roomful of criminals, then Valjean hops in a window. Javert leaves and Valjean ties himself up. Marius catches a rock that flies into his hand then stops spying on his neighbors. He goes to the police and gives Javert a pair of pistols.

Valjean walks into a room with a dead Fantine and an unconscious Javert. He wakes up Javert with a chair leg then puts the chair back together and brings Fantine back to life. She gets healthier and healthier, then witnesses an argument between Javert and Valjean before quitting a life of prostitution and buying herself some hair and teeth. Then she gets hired as a factory worker.

Valjean falls down a convent wall, then comes shooting out of an alley to chase Javert.

Valjean and Cosette spend years and years doing nothing in a convent OH WAIT.
