#ngl i want this really badly #omg and at some point they end up picking up enjolras #who happens to be heading in the same direction in hopes of reuniting with some of his friends #because he had flown over to washington dc to interview for an internship when the zombie plague broke out #while all his friends remained at the university #and so now he’s traveling with R and marius #and cosette and eponine have officially joined their ragtag group as well although there was a bit of tension at first #(which marius tries to defuse like ‘it’s a good thing you stole our last car that one would have been cramped with this many people’) #(he receives three bemused stares and a glare from R) #and so their all riding along together with enjolras and grantaire constantly bickering and marius continuing to put his foot in his mouth #until they come to a town and enjolras is like omg i know this place turn left here i know where we can stay #and they end up pulling up in front of a random house in some bland looking suburban neighborhood #and they pile out of the car and into the house which doesn’t seem to be anything special but enjolras is skipping ahead all excited like #and he turns around with his arms spread wide and is like ‘my friends we are standing in the house of none other than jean lamarque’ #(who’s apparently some prominent political activist enjolras fangirls over hard) #marius has never heard of him but enjolras looks so excited he just smiles and nods along #and so they’re staying at lamarque’s house enjolras is excitedly looking through the books on his bookshelf #as grantaire who is apparently the only other one who knows who lamarque is is annoying him from the couch with cynical comments #when lamarque walks in dressed as a zombie #after whacking him with a fire poker and determining that he is not in fact an actual zombie enjolras starts fangirling over the man himself #all like ‘JEAN FREAKING LAMARQUE’ #omg i really want this au
Guys, do you know that the pin Javet gave Gavroche in the movie wasn’t just some ordinary police award?
It was a Legion of Honor medal. Do you know who issued Legion of Honor awards?
Napoleon. Javert gave a twelve year old a medal that had been issued to him by the Emperor.
Just another reason to sob uncontrollably at this scene.
