Well, I haven't gotten to this point in the series yet, but in the book, there's a point where he's being held captive by Thenardier and his gang and they threaten to torture information out of him so they can kidnap Cosette. So he picks up a burning fire poker and BURNS HIMSELF to prove that won't crack under pain and generally just freak everyone out. Hardcore, right?
"Jean, oh my god, stop doing that! It's scaring all the other guests! I'm not inviting you to my parties anymore. Not cool."
OMG am I frickin' psychic?! I was just thinking about how in another fandom someone had put up art for characters that haven't gotten any for some time, and I thought, "I wonder if they'll be anything for Shoujo Cosette. Pff, like today's any different." And then HOLY CRAP!
This makes me so happy. Especially because it's Valjean. Enough of the little girls and pretty boys already! We need our main men! Very nice job.
