Poisson d’Avril: A Les Mis Fanworks Exchange

lmpoisson:

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!

Les Mis Fandom Calendar Update!

Les Mis Fandom Calendar

I know I haven’t done one of these in a while, but since I’ve seen the LMBB stuff starting up again, I thought it was about time.  But this is literally the only thing on the calendar at the moment.  So, if anyone knows of any other upcoming exchanges, challenges, or weeks, please let me know!  ^_^
