My body forgot to sleep last night. I was sure I’d fall asleep at some point in the past three hours, as that’s what I’ve been doing for about a week but, I feel wide awake. I’ll either pass out immediately after posting this or go make coffee.
but it would be really weird if he decided to marry Éponine after she died.
Okay, yes, that would be creepy. But come on! Valjean gets an entire verse dedicated to him by Marius in the finale song, all about how he carried Marius from the barricade when he was injured. Does Éponine get her own tribute song? No. Nada. Zilch. And she took a freaking bullet for him!
Mind you, she does get a pretty sweet death scene and an incredible song to go along with it. But she still dies. And Marius and Cosette live happily ever after. I’m still going with the fact that she gets the raw end of the deal here.
Honestly, Éponine and the little boy …Gavroche? were the only characters that I really cared about. oh and Fantine*.
Éponine’s (and Gavroche’s) story was short and brutal but an actual life with some story and events, also badass with good songs. Cosette was just a shiny object for two men to sing about. Éponine was too cool for Marius SO SHE HAD TO DIE.
Happy Year of the Dragon!

Happy New Year! My lunar New Year resolutions are to eat less refined sugar and get some muscle back. And get a sick omoplata this year.
his butt’s on fire.
A very nice guy, that I barely knew, from a very long time ago, is going to be on Celebrity Apprentice tonight. For some reason. Pretty sure they will do nothing but, talk of me*. The Donald is almost over me.
*I’ve been joking about this all week but, for you tumblr, I try to stay on my very best behavior and I’m only mentioning Trump once, you’re welcome!
