Les Miserables - Vive la Republique ! J'en Suis by AresNergal Les Miserables - Vive la Republique ! J'en Suis by AresNergal
Hey, some Les Misérables fanart because that's my favorite book ever and omg I love Victor Hugo :la:
Here is the Death Scene (oh well, just-before-death) of Enjolras and Grantaire. Because I like them. I mean Grantaire is funny and somehow he managed to have an awesome death without actually fighting XD

Hey, Here the extract form the book. It's in french though, so sorry if you can't understand it.

"Relégué qu’il était dans son coin et comme abrité derrière le billard, les soldats, l’œil fixé sur Enjolras, n’avaient pas même aperçu Grantaire, et le sergent se préparait à répéter l’ordre : En joue ! quand tout à coup ils entendirent une voix forte crier à côté d’eux :
— Vive la République ! J’en suis.
Grantaire s’était levé.
L’immense lueur de tout le combat qu’il avait manqué, et dont il n’avait pas été, apparut dans le regard éclatant de l’ivrogne transfiguré.
Il répéta : Vive la République ! traversa la salle d’un pas ferme, et alla se placer devant les fusils debout près d’Enjolras.
— Faites-en deux d’un coup, dit-il.
Et, se tournant vers Enjolras avec douceur, il lui dit :
— Permets-tu ?
Enjolras lui serra la main en souriant.
Ce sourire n’était pas achevé que la détonation éclata.

Enjolras, traversé de huit coups de feu, resta adossé au mur comme si les balles l’y eussent cloué. Seulement il pencha la tête.
Grantaire, foudroyé, s’abattit à ses pieds."

And that's the moment when I always have to put the book away and try to stop crying...

I like how they don't look like there are only a few second of their lifes left. Nice job! :3

Aw thanks =3
Yeah well, it's a Hugo book. I guess if there's one thing that guy knows how to do it's to give us pain xD

Yeah, I guess that every Les Mis fan must be a bit masochist xD

aww, thanks a lot =) To be honest the scene as it is in the books is still better though, both awesome and heart wrenching, totally deserved a drawing !

So here I'm just like, "Oh, look at that lovely picture, look at the beautiful coloring and what great express- no no no no no no are those guns?"

So basically, break my heart, why don't you?

I love the atmosphere. Like I know they're about to die but there's an air of genuine friendship around them it's like their own little world. excellent job
