Changed Plotlines

Postby freedomlover » Fri Apr 12, 2013 2:16 am

My roomie and I were being silly and coming up with totally illogical plotlines and how that would have changed the story.
Here are a few...


1) Instead of rescuing Marius, Valjean takes and unconscious Enjolras through the sewers because he arrives late and does not know who Marius is...

2) Enjolras appears with Éponine/Fantine in the epilogue and sings to Marius to creep him out; "I'm leading you to heavennnn! and we all live, on a barricade in heaven."

3) Valjean misfires and gets Javert

Am I supposed to be thinking this to the tune of "Yellow Submarine?"

Don't slate that first idea. The original idea for the fanfiction that I'm writing was based on that. It's developed since then but that was the original idea.

I'm still trying to work it all out in my head. It will probably end up here eventually, but not for a long time though. :D

Oh, I want to read it Rachelle! ;) It was funny when my roommate (playing Cosette) came before my bed and was like; "Ahhhh! That is not Marius!"

I actually have toyed with the idea of writing a story based on the first scenario. Instead of rescuing Marius Valjean picks up one of the other Barricade Boys instead. My choice survivor was to be Combeferre though.
