Hi! I'm Angeline/Annie and I'll admit that I became a Les Mis fan relatively recently (after seeing the 2012 movie, actually
). I've pretty much been in love with the story ever since; I would not shut up about it for an entire year. I kind of burned myself out because of that (as I often do), and stopped thinking about it entirely for awhile. Now that I've mellowed out, I think that I'm ready to join a discussion like a healthy, normal person. I've been through this cycle a lot, as you can probably tell.
So I've seen the musical and the movie, but I haven't read the Brick itself yet (gasp!) Pretty much all I know is from stalking people who have (which is a surprisingly good method of learning things, I've found). You'll probably see a thread with questions about book translations going up within a few minutes of me posting this
Anyway, I'm looking forward to seeing some fellow fans around here (you might see me as well, depending on how bold I'm feeling. My default mode is skulking, haha). Cheers!
