And I'd say that was the most ridiculous teamup in the story, were it not for the fact that Marius and Éponine are saved from their dastardly, dastardly clutches by Javert and Enjolras. Also Cosette tortures Éponine with a Sweeney Todd razor.
Also, I've noticed a lot of recent M/E fics seem to like killing off Azelma...

Majestic_Picnob wrote:Interestingly, I've noticed that a lot of bad M/É fic cliches come right from the book, even if there's no sign otherwise that the writer has read it. Azelma is usually a major character (and commonly gets killed by the bad guys to show they're bad; though of course Éponine is saved before they can do the same to her), Gavroche is their brother (and the littlest ones are even mentioned sometimes), Monty is Ép's often-abusive ex, and as far as the Thenardier parents go Monsieur is usually dominant to Madame, in contrast to the musical where they're more or less partners and the film where, arguably, Madame is in control.

-E/E love at first sight
-Montparnasse as abusive
-M. Thenardier as the underdog in his marriage with Mme. Thenardier. In the book it was the other way around.
