Let us Butcher Literature =D by AresNergal Let us Butcher Literature =D by AresNergal
Yeah, that was random.
And my handwriting is pretty terrible XD
So, Starring Jean Valjean and Javert from Victor Hugo's "Les Misérables" and Captain Ahab from Herman Melville's "Moby-Dick". Both Masterpieces of Literature. SO YEAH, Let's have fun making silly jokes with it :la:

You're fantastic. Just fantastic. I can't even go on. I'm too busy laughing. XD

I'm so happy each time someone laughs at one of my stupid jokes. I probably should draw idiotic jokes more often, but if they don't hit I feel like an idiot for ever thinking it was funny so... I'm really really thankful =)

I love the answer "to be honest, kinda, yes"... XD exellent!

Thanks ! I did have tons of fun writing that random shit XD
And specifically on this line, well, let's be honest, He's just totally played as an egomaniac in most adaptations, so that's how he end up perceived by most of the fandom.
And well, if we put ourselves in Jean Valjean's shoes,... The poor man must feel like EVERYONE's life revolves around him. He goes to Paris and bam Javert is muted there, the Thenardiers move there as well, there's also Marius there, and Everyone just keeps running into each others all the time.
Oh, the contrived coincidences in 19th century litterature,...

It's hard to be the main character! But Javert have a lot of things to do when he is not at work, like... reading? I like the way 19th century litterature looks booring when we study it at school, but become so great when we read it on our own! Like Candide, in fact... Goods books! ^^

Yeah, I feel you on that one. Though in my case ALL books were that way, even short modern easy-to-read ones - If I have a deadline and am supposed to pay attention because there's work to do on it, I tended to be super lazy and not wanting to read them and ending up checking wikipédia to know what happens.
And then after the deadline when we weren't studying them anymore I was suddenly perfectly okay with spending 5 hours per day reading them :dummy: and on Les Misérables, I read it twice through and through including the infamous-but-I-still-like-it Waterloo part (Personnally I find the convent digression to be way more tedious)

As for Javert, he's said to read but not actually enjoying it, and he doesn't seem to have any particular hobbies, but even at work, well... He has other stuff to do than running after Valjean. They really just keep crossing each other's paths constantly, but so are Marius and Thénardier. Main characters in that book just can't stop bumping into each others at every corner.

And yeah, Candide is pretty funny. It doesn't make sense plotwise (omg how many times did Pangloss died already ? Because in my memories he just keeps dying and coming back) but it's just damn funny.

^^ I remind me Danniel Pennac, who said that the verb to read does not stand the imperative. I didn't like the Waterloo passage a lot, because it was the think I just made with my history programm in class. It too much. ^^

For characters who bump into each others all the time, it's not their fault, France is a small country, there's not space enough for everyone XD

I studied Candide... The thing I remember the more is about red sheeps witch were flying and about the both way to read it... It's not a lot!

Oh, yeah, Pennac. He was totally right but then again he's a teacher, he probably only saw all too well that his students didn't like being asked to read.
Yeah but I like the way the Waterloo part is written. Obviously we're both french so yeah we both saw it in history class and in like, one million movies and series about Napoleon, so we know what happens, but it's still so well written. Though I really appreciated it the SECOND time I read it, because the first time I was way too anxious about the plot XD

France isn't THAT small ! Heck, Paris isn't that small. But yeah it's pretty much necessary for the plot I guess, it's just,... Funny when you think about it.

One day, I will have time enough to re-read Les Miserables...
-.-" If I had saw your profile before, I will have seen that we were both french... Shame on me. Well, it's good for my english exams, I guess...
Je sais que la France n'est pas si petite... enfin, à pied, à vélo ou en voiture? A vélo c'est grand, en voiture c'est raisonnable ^^
