For a re-imagining of Les Miserables.
Yesterday, my dad and I went to Les Miserables.
And I fucking loved it.
Anyway, later in the day, I was thinking about the movie, when I had the most asdfghjkl amazing idea. What if, instead of post-revolutionary France, the story had been set in BLI City? How would things have been different? And that's what the fic is going to be about, my darlings. Les Miz, but set in the year 2041, in BLI City. For those of you not familiar with the plot of the original story, here's something I found on IMDb;
"Based on the novel by Victor Hugo, 'Les Miserables' travels with prisoner-on-parole, 24601, Jean Valjeun, as he runs from the ruthless Inspector Javert on a journey beyond the barricades, at the center of the June Rebellion. Meanwhile, the life of Fantine, a working class girl with a child is at turning point as she turns to prostitution to pay money to the evil innkeeper and his wife who look after her child, Cosette. Valjean promise to take care of the child, eventually leads to a love triangle between Cosette, Marius who is a student of the rebellion, and Eponine, a girl of the streets. The people sing of their anger and Enjolras leads the students to fight upon the barricades."
Gerard will be Jean Valjean, Lyn-Z will be Fantine, and Bandit will be Cosette. However, the parts up for grabs are-
-Javert (Detective who is determined to find Gerard and put him back in prison.)
-Thenardier (Inkeeper who takes Bandit in; bad guy.)
-Madame Thenardier (Inkeeper's wife, also a bad guy.)
-Marius (Grown-up Bandit's love interest.)
-Eponine (The Thenardiers' daughter, in love with Marius.)
-Enjolras (Marius's friend, leader of the revolution against BLI.)
Lots of background characters are needed as well.
Appearance (Split for detail.):
Hair style and color:
Eye color (You can also include shape if you want.):
Figure (Short, tall, thin, chubby, etc.):
Clothing (The character based on Javert will be in a uniform, so this part doesn't need to be filled out if that's the part you want. Also, note that the other characters are fairly poor, so nothing too fancy.):
That's all I can think of, so thank you for reading, and the results will (hopefully) be up soon.
EDIT: I forgot to mention that if you want to audition a female character for a male role, or a male character for a female role, that's perfectly acceptable. However, I would like some characters of each gender.
