Let me share all my Les Mis feels!

Lady of Shalott
So, I seem to have fallen head over heels for a new fandom. I'm not quite certain how it happened (actually that is not true, I know very well how it happened and whom to blame for it - he sent me an mp3 of Javert's suicide a year ago <3), but, yes, Les Mis. ALL THE FEELS. In that ridiculous obsessive way I haven't fallen for a pairing since Lestat/Louis when I was 17, coupled with staying up way too late reading all the 600+ Valvert fics at the AO3. Well, the good ones, and the angsty ones. I'll never understand why people want to write fluff for a character so beautifully, painfully tragic... <3

It's been 10 days of overdosing on Javert now and still I feel like a kitten drowning in a bathtub of catnip whenever I click a fic I haven't read before (or reread favourites OMG 10 days and I'm already at the rereading favourites stage /o\) and after finishing a swap fic I'm now at 32% of the novel according to my kindle. All the story ideas!

But after pretty much not writing for two years, I am so incredibly glad that it's coming back. Also, the slide into a new fandom now forces me to take Tumblr serious at last. -_- Not a fan, but I need to get my fix of Valvert somewhere! I've pretty much just used Tumblr for porn so far, but I guess we'll all eventually have to go with the flow of fandom, and this means a use for the fannish tumblr I created a long time ago to never use.

Lovely to see you around!





I loved your SV story. It made my day!

Aww, thanks so much! *hugs* I was hoping I'd be able to do the pairing justice, but the prompt really worked well for me! :)

I was hoping I'd be able to do the pairing justice,

You certainly did for me! Encairion wrote me a 'teaser' fic of them for my birthday, and I was over the moon, because when I look on AO3 for that pairing and 3 out of ten are mine, it is frustrating XD And then I saw yours today, and it was like a second birthday! Loved it! Now I have some fics I can re-read :D

Edited because I can't English today.

It's always fun to write someone with so much passion. And since the prompt said that power play would be fine, I could just indulge what I enjoy most. XD

Glad to see you writing again. It's always fun to do something new and shiny.

That fall into a new fandom is really like nothing else - and it's been a long while since I fell this hard for something. Ah, that choice between more reading of the novel, staring at Youtube clips of Javert or just indulging with more fic!

I got the vhs tape of Les Mis 10th anniversary years ago, and I adored it (it had Philip Quast as Javert.) Sadly, I don't have it or any other version of Les Mis on dvd/blu-ray but maybe one day...

<3 He's my Javert as well. I have it on dvd, and the 25th anniversary on bluray, and also the recent movie, and then of course there's all sorts of Javerts on youtube. It's probably sad that my main problem with Russel Crowe is, no ponytail! :D

Yay! (My heart belongs to Enjolras and Grantaire, but it's such a tiny fandom on the whole that I'm thrilled to see it expand by one!)

I'm so incredibly obsessed with Les Mis right now it's almost sad. (I guess the good part of that is that it forced me to finally try to understand tumblr instead of just claiming that I'm too old for it. Though I'm still hoping that fandom will move to something easier to navigate eventually.)

It seems that the fandom activity died down again after the movie buzz, but just like Tolkien fandom, I think the die-hard fans don't ever leave. So hopefully I'll be able to keep obsessing for a long time to come! (I'm so going to need tickets to London if I continue like this...)
