Hideaways Chapter It's Time, a les misérables fanfic | FanFiction
is married to Madame Thenardier and father to Eponine and Gavroche (although he Gavroche has a very dramatic death at the barricade. COURFEYRAC. Joly, Combeferre and Courfeyrac had perished right before his eyes when build relationships with people, but for Courfeyrac's kind and warm heart. He, with the help of Gavroche, had cheered everyone up and gave them. Courfeyrac was really getting to like Gavroche and Isabelle, so he sat with They had a plan to tell everybody about their relationship, hoping for the best but "You evil little guy, I'm hoping you don't use this for your poems,".
I ranted as much to Anne-girl when it was all over, but all she would do was put on her best Josh voice and say, "But then it would have been like a six hour movie! Basically, my only complaint about her was that I felt like Samantha Barks didn't get enough screen time-- I mean, her Eponine was flawless because, y'know, SHE is flawless, but I wanted to see more of her.
I have always been something of a skeptic where Marius and Cosette are concerned, at least in the musical. I elaborated on my opinions regarding love at first sigh here, and I don't retract any of my statements, but Marius and Cosette in the movie were too sweet for words. And it really has to be attributed to splendiferous acting from Eddie Redmayne and Amanda Seyfried.
From the moment their eyes met across the crowded street, I knew they were destined to be together. Um, hope I didn't just spoil anything for you. Spoilers-- they get married. Amanda Seyfried was a lovely, lovely Cosette. I know the brick says Cosette is supposed to be a brunette, but I always pictured her as a blonde, and now it's pretty much impossible for me to picture her as anyone but Amanda Seyfried.
She looks like a living doll, and isn't that what Cosette is supposed to be? Kind of symbolic with the doll Valjean bought for her when she was little Because he spoiled her with clothes and whatnot, y'know.
This Cosette was not bratty or spoiled as some Cosettes seem to be, however-- though she wanted to know more about the past and got upset when Valjean refused to tell her, she didn't get angry the way Katie Hall does in the 25th concert an element that always annoyed me. Girl, you have no idea how much this man gave up for you!! Nor does her wealth and privilege seem to have made any kind of Veruca-Salt-ish character out of her I love that that's where Marius gets his first glimpse of her-- doing good for the people, just as he and his friends are trying to do in their own way.
But then the Thenardiers have to come along and ruin it all. Not that I didn't enjoy the ruining, because it was hilarious. Was I the only one who got chills when Javert picked up Gavroche? Then when Random Other Police Officer whom I'm convinced was just thrown in there, along with the dudes at Fantine's arrest, just to prove that Javert is NOT the only cop in Paris, despite evidence to the contrary was holding onto him while Javert was doing his I'm In Charge Here thing, my sister and I were vociferating our indignation quite Ooooh, it would have been cool if Nick Jonas had played Montparnasse.
I would have been way too amused. Even more so if they had left in the little bit at the end of "Look Down" where Gavroche is introducing Eponine and she elbows Parnasse in the stomach. That would have been entertaining. Also, Russell Crowe's singing amused me agaaaaain in this one. This is becoming rather a mantra. The Marius-teasing was perfect a combination of lightening the mood at what was probably a boring political meeting and just plain goofing offMarius' reaction was exactly as it ought to be a blend of confused, embarrassed and not-really-caring-because-did-you-guys-SEE-her???
It's the barricade boys. Hadley Fraser's "ooh and ahh" used to be my favorite, but I'm becoming rather partial to George Blagden's after repeated listenings. This song, I think, is when we see Enjolras' full personality in its best light. We see him getting frustrated with both Marius and Grantaire, attempting to drag Marius back into the Real World though the "who cares about your lonely soul!
Yeah, those are tears. I'd never thought about it before IF they had both survived the barricades and IF the story had ended very differently, I would have loved to see them get married. She desperately needed someone to love her, and he desperately needed something or someone to believe in after the revolution failed. Yes, you can argue that the wistful look on Enjo's face is more of a "drat, Marius is deserting us again" than a "sheesh, who IS that gorgeous woman? In this case, anyway.
And look at Combeferre, will you? That's shock right there. Shock that Enjolras is noticing a girl. I will go down with this ship. I really, really liked the Cosette and Valjean interaction during that song She was eight when she left the Thenardiers And I liked the way the candlesticks kept popping up in Valjean's rooms throughout the movie-- a lovely little touch showing how the Bishop's influence is following him through his life.
Amanda Seyfried's voice left something to be desired in both this song and "A Heart Full of Love"-- she really couldn't quite hit those high notes-- yet I'm okay with that. I saw an interview in which Samantha Barks was describing her costar's voice as almost birdlike, very tremulous and flute-y, which fits in perfectly with the brick's running comparison of Cosette to a lark. On stage I like a Cosette with a really strong soprano, but in the movie I'm willing to overlook technicalities.
And I wasn't even crying because Eponine was literally left out in the cold, though my sadness did stem from her presence. Mostly I was crying because all I could think of was, "gahhh, she loves Marius and he doesn't love her back and she's going to die. I knew Eponine was going to die. Now you do too, if you didn't already. I'm well-versed in this story.'Suno! Acha nhi lagta...' - Long Distance Relationship Spcl* - Hindi Sad Poetry - Prashant Sanjeev
Why on earth should I suddenly start operating the waterworks just because I remembered what was going to happen in Act Two? I think perhaps that, too, is a testimony to how great this film is.
Courfeyrac & Gavroche Thénardier - Works | Archive of Our Own
Here's a story I know like the back of my hand, a character who may very well be my favorite in the whole shebang I still can't deciiiiiiide, thougha song I've heard literally hundreds of times.
Yet seeing it in a new interpretation brought tears to my eyes and face This story still has the power to move me in ways I hadn't thought possible, even after many, many viewings.
Back to our normal programming. But it was still handled well on Samantha Barks' part, anyway. That thing ought to be patented.
Just like Colm Wilkinson's eyebrows. And the cutting of some of the more important lines did make this piece of nonsense possible, of which I'm still pretty proud.
I fully approve of the people-who-boss-such-things' decision to move it back in time and have it take place right after AHFOL. The impact of just having seen the man she loved meeting the woman HE loved would definitely be devastating to poor Eponine, and since she doesn't have to play the Pony Express in this version, it makes sense for her to sing her famous soliloquy here instead of on her way back from delivering Marius' letter.
Interesting to note-- just as she sings the line "the streets are full of strangers," some random dude walks by in the background. I wouldn't call that street exactly full, but hey, there's one stranger. It makes more sense than it does onstage, when she's completely alone for the entire song.
I almost wish she'd won instead. He needs someone like you" Eponine said, tears in her eyes. You know him better than anyone. I can see, even if this state, Gavroche looks up to you more than anyone. He sees you as the hero, you saved him when he was sick and you have saved him now" Courfeyrac shook his head, looking at the little boy looking so weak and needy. I am failing him now" "How?
You are helping to look after him now; you took him back from our papa, saving him? I should have kept him with me" Courfeyrac said, his own brown eyes, usually so playful, full of tears. He needs to stay with me now! My papa is a beast of a man" she replied leaning over and kissing his cheek. And maybe, now this has happened, he will want to stay with you" Courfeyrac blushed slightly at her kiss and nodded.
I am no doctor but I will support him. I care for him greatly, as if he were my own" He said. She did not dare to mention that she had to go home to her parents, to help them with that night's crime. He would have stopped her, she knew it, but she knew that if she didn't go she would be beaten also.
With a sigh, Courfeyrac carefully moved to lie down beside the gamin, keeping hold of his hand. It was not long until he too was asleep.
And it was hours later when he was roused from his sleep. And there we are… Courfeyrac has had his heart to heart with Eponine… How sweet? Gavroche's recovery will probably run into a couple more chapters before the drama of the approaching revolution comes into play.
I would really like your feedback on this chapter so please review You know where the button is I saw on Tumblr that someone on Twitter asked Fra Fey for his description of Courfeyrac's relationship with Gavroche in the movie and this was his answer 'A guardian of sorts. He would have known Gavroche for a long time and taken it upon himself to look out for him' How cute is this?
Your review has been posted. Hugo never provides his given name but says Gavroche has chosen his own name. His parents show him no affection and send him to live in the street, where he is better off than at home.
Due to a freak accident, the two boys are separated from Magnon without identification, and encounter Gavroche purely by chance. They are unaware of their identities, but Gavroche invites them to live with him and takes care of them. They reside in the hollow cavity of a giant elephant statuethe Elephant of the Bastille conceived by Napoleon as a fountain, but abandoned unfinished.
This was no imaginary construction; located at the Place de la Bastilleit had been designed by Jean-Antoine Alavoine. The two boys soon leave him the next morning. They are last seen at the Luxembourg Garden retrieving and eating discarded bread from a fountain.
It is unknown what has happened to the two after that.
