Snurk!
Yes, I was thinking mainly in terms of the significant characters. While one can expect elderly characters to die off, he does tend to like to use events (such as the revolution) where he can get rid of a lot of characters at once, violently.

Well as long as Graham Chapman isn't going to show up and stop us from getting too silly--

Fate not mentioned. Most of the characters seem to be this, actually...

I wonder if it did cross his mind to use some of them again?

...collectingbees, I didn't even realize how obvious that was. Duh. :lol: silverwhistle, you should check out the apocrypha thread for this. Hugo probably wrote fanfiction of his own book. And then alludes to his book in other books (vice versa).

Well, we know he had other things in mind for Magnon...

I checked out the apocrypha: I love it! But I thought those were out-takes from The Brick, not later stories.

I love the idea of the original author keeping his characters and stories alive in his head long after the 'official' book has closed. Makes one feel less 'guilty' about fanfic… :wink:

Quatrevingt-Treize is kind of like really weird Enjolras fanfiction at times, or at least like it was a more in-depth development of the ideas that spawned the Friends of the ABC.

...also there is Committee of Public Safety RPF. Oh, Hugo.

Oh wow, I haven't read that in forever but I remember thinking that. I thought I was the only one. ...hmmm, which characters haven't we mentioned?

I'm just getting into that. I've remarked on it on the Éponine Meta thread, because Éponine ought to have had a far better chance of survival than Michelle… I asked a medic friend about it.

Just throwing in that I <3 the regicide atheist, too! Not so fond of the bourgeois M. Myriel has a whole chapter with, though. But regicide atheist made me quit wondering for a while just where Jean Valjean was.
