I don’t think that Grantaire’s solo in Drink With Me is
actually as sad as one may think. There’s a strong juxtaposition between him
singing about how they won’t be remembered and the reality of thousands of people commemorating their death. Perhaps the
best example of this is George Blagden’s video: the words of the song
are contradicted by the actual video, in which he returns to the site
of the barricade almost two centuries later and has now been viewed by thousands of
people. In other words, Grantaire’s solo is beautiful because he was wrong. Their
deaths did mean something and almost
two centuries later, the people who lost their lives in the June rebellion are
still remembered. Because ultimately the June rebellion has been immortalised
by Les Miserables, and I doubt anyone will ever forget it.
Ok so we know Marius kept Javert’s pistols but did Javert ever give him back his keys?
I don’t think he did? Marius just moved into Courfeyrac’s place. The Pontmercy Conflict Resolution Method: Go To Courfeyrac’s. Go Directly to Courfeyrac’s . Do not pass Go, do not collect the keys to your old apartment, just head on over.
… It’s surprisingly effective??
Javert threw himself into the river
with Marius’ keys still in his pocket
That is so rude
Well Marius kept his pistols
they just kept each others’ security deposits really XP
I am losing my mind rn this is so baffling to me
Of all the mementos Marius could have kept after the barricades it was Javert’s pistols.
At least he doesn’t go around sniffing them (at least I hope not)
I mean he might also have dropped the pistols? It’s not like he was in any condition to keep track of his personal effects when he left the barricade
(and we never do find out what happened to the cravat Courfeyrac used to bandage Marius up )
I just mean Marius kept them after the robbery
…Javert probably really gave the keys back to the landlady, end result: Marius wins the loot exchange at the Gorbeau place ? XD
I mean, I think Marius won the loot exchange anyhow, having presumably gotten a lot more use out of the pistols than Javert did out of the keys.
Excellent point! Although both of the people he saved with them died the next day anyway…
…why did you have to say that
I turn my back on this post and it comes back with THAT *severe look*

An idea: They scrap the Han Solo movie and do an Obi-Wan movie instead.
Reasons for this:
– Ewan McGregor
– That Han Solo short list is garbage.
– I feel like they will try to make young Han very macho and totally misrepresent his character.
– I need to know what happened to Obi-Wan between III and IV.
– Seeing Obi-Wan watch over baby Luke.
is anyone else annoyed by the stereotype that young people’s phones are a loud and annoying device? because i have never heard anyone under 30 who doesn’t have their phone on vibrate. like 100% of the time if the marimba ringtone starts blaring it’s the older generations.
I work at a public library. This is the truth. It’s ALWAYS the old people
Me: Tell me quickly what’s the story, who saw what and why and where. Let him give a full description. Let him answer to Javert.
