I must warn you that every single attempt to type this out so far has resulted in hysterical giggling fits. I apologize in advance for the capslocking. It’s 3 in the morning here, ok, and I’m practically liveblogging this stuff as I read.
But let’s start from the beginning.
Paul Adam was a rather uninteresting French novelist from late 19th/early 20th century. His style oscillated from naturalism to symbolism, with lots of historical fiction in the middle. Not an extremely successful author, nor a particularly influential one (most of his works haven’t been re-edited since the 1910s haha).
Le temps et la vie is a tetralogy of books following the life of young Omer Héricourt, bonapartist, born in 1806. The plot is boring, the prose wordy, the historical research almost accurate but not very subtle.
What’s interesting is that the author decided to insert here and there some characters straight out from Balzac’s La Comédie Humaine, taken often from points in their life different from their original timelines.
And then, in the last installment of the series, Au soleil de Juillet, July 1830 happens. So what? you would say. Well…
"The few Swissmens in factions in the Louvre’s rooms hurried away from the pit, toward the colonnade, by the Seine’s side, pointing their rifles at Enjolras, Grantaire and Bahorel's students, who were coming up the barricades, climbing them, and firing their guns.”
tl;dr Les Misérables/Comédie Humaine crossover fanfic is a thing that existed in 1903 pass it on
So here am I, still unrecovered from this explosion of fannish bliss, to bring you a translation of the juiciest bits. I had to stop several times to remind myself to breathe because it’s that insane.
So at the matinee yesterday, during the Prologue, when Javert was giving Valjean the yellow ticket of leave and stuff, Ramin threw a very audible “go fuck yourself” at Will.
And then during the evening show, when Valjean was lying on the ground, and the bishop approached and touched his shoulder, he flinched and, again, there was a very audible, “FUCK.”
I love this show.
