Poisson d’Avril: A Les Mis Fanworks Exchange


This is a Les Misérables April Fool’s exchange, where the challenge is to create works that both meet your prompts exactly, and not at all!

How does it work? Well, the goal is to meet the letter, but not the spirit, of the prompt you’re given.

For example, say someone requested “ExR fluff”. You could create a work involving Grantaire waxing poetic about the merits of marshmallow fluff as an accompaniment to peanut butter, as opposed to jam, bananas, or honey.

If someone requested “Pants business on the barricade,” you could create a work involving Joly, Bossuet, and Bahorel literally sewing and selling pants from a barricade.

Sound good? Then come join our exchange!
