Les Mis Anon Kink Meme Chatter Post
TARDIS
10littlebullets wrote in makinghugospin
Here it is, a chatter post for all your off-topic needs!

What the chatter post is NOT:
- Les Mis fandom's version of an anon hate/gossip meme
- A venue to vent your spleen at people who are Wrong On The Internet
- No, seriously, I don't care how stupid someone's opinions are, there are a billion places on the internet where you can give free rein to your scorn and hostility. This isn't one of them.
- A place to whine about anyone else's kink meme etiquette. You want someone to police etiquette, talk to a mod, we can put in a gentle word with people who truly don't realize how obnoxious they're being.

What the chatter post IS:
- A place to discuss Les Mis, resources and writing questions, possible additions or improvements to the meme, how awful your day was and why you imperatively need to be plied with espresso and a puppy and a good H/C fic rec, etc.
- Friendly, supportive, and respectful
- A goddamn resource goldmine
- A place to squee
- Off-topic, so it doesn't have to be about the meme or Les Mis
- Probably NSFW
- Ruthlessly moderated to ensure that everything is sparkles and joy and rainbows and unicorn farts at all times
- Subject to an immediate total comment freeze if it starts going down the tubes or if we go from zero to the front page of fandom_wank while the mods are asleep

*waves* this is my first round so i just wanted to say hiya and that this is the most welcomingist kink meme i have ever had the pleasure of leaving prompts in:) love and hugs to all.


Squee! I love there´s not fantasy-shaming in Les Mis Kink Meme!

Are there kink memes where kink- or fantasy-shaming is allowed? That's... man, I thought the entire definition of a kink meme was

1. Enable anon commenting
2. No kink-shaming
3. GO!

Is it too early to start a beta-seeking post? 'Cause I want to post some stuff to AO3 and I'd like some help polishing it up.

Comment thread, or separate post for beta-seeking? Let's see how we do with a comment thread first.

Meme suggestions

Currently soliciting the opinions of the meme at large on:

1. Regular prompt freezes, yea or nay?
1a. If yea: one or two days a week, or several days at the close of each round?

2. Eventually moving to Dreamwidth(!), yea or nay?
Functionally, I can see only upsides about moving from LiveJournal to Dreamwidth--longer character limits on comments, better load times, better comment pages, better thread controls, subject lines, none of this fuckery where new comments don't display for some people. The one major downside I can see would be attrition rates; it's possible the meme would lose momentum if some people didn't want to make the move, or didn't want to bother. HOWEVER, if I'm overlooking some way in which you vastly prefer LiveJournal to Dreamwidth, please please let me know about it so I can take that into account.

3. If no Dreamwidth: should I switch the comm over to a Plus account in order to enable custom comment pages? Because I hate LJ's comment page A LOT, but on the other hand, ew, ads.

Please please please please please please move to Dreamwidth. Please please please.

Oh, and an AO3 collection would be AWESOME.

(oh, and as I fight with captcha: you can also turn captchas off on DW)

Omg. I literally JUST understood the Grantaire/R pun and I still don't get Jollly even though I did French for a long time. I feel bad. lol

"Ailes" (wings) is pronounced the same as "L's." I don't know why there are four of them though.

Inquiry! Sometimes when I'm just posting something on my own, I'll finish it, wait a day, and then post it once I've slept and can do one more rested edit. Is this advantageous in the kink-meme world (I'm more or less a newbie to this realm of fandom), or am I better off just going for it so people don't move past the prompt? ;)

I usually post fairly rough drafts on the meme, but I do run through them once or twice. As long as you remember to stick it on the fill post, a day's wait won't hurt... but I think people are also understanding that meme fills aren't always the cleanest ever. You could post what you have and then edit before archiving somewhere else...

Can this post be used for recs?

No mod, but I'd like for it to be possible!

Anyone have advice on writing Eponine POV?

like, brickverse, musicalverse, or AU??? Cause 'Ponine is one of those characters that undergoes a lot of characterization shifts depending on the source material.

This seems like a reasonably appropriate place to point out that "the Les Amis" means "the The Friends," and I cringe every time I see it. One definite article is enough!

yes thank you

has anyone here watched an anime called Haibane Renmei? I kind of want to do a prompt relating to it but if nobody's ever heard of it, there's no point, so I thought I'd ask first...

Love this meme.

Love this fandom.

From someone who's been sitting in the shadows (mostly in the J/VJ corner) for nigh on a decade waiting for some proper action, I just want to thank each and every one of you.


Oh, hello there the beautiful the fabulous brodinsons, how you doin.

Hello, my friends!!!! I love you all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

((And I apologize. Porn is... sort of... coming along..... maybe/))

has anyone considered springing for a pinboard for organizational purposes? the fill post is great but it's still really hard to find things sometimes, and delicious is no good anymore

well there's a fills tumblr for that purpose

I feel like I should say a thing here but I don't know what to say.

...How can I be socially awkward on the internet how is that even a thing that happens.

Say you'll fill a prompt! Or say you'll throw bread at me until I fill mine. :/

I hope y'all are happy that I've now written porn during class, at work, and in several different waiting rooms.

I hope you are...because I sure as heck am. :D

I have done the same thing. I just casually eat my lunch in the dining halls where anyone can see me typing away at something that says 'cock' seven times on the same page.

can I start a conversation on the lack of D/s fills on the meme like I see so many amazing prompts that never get filled and it makes me sad all day and it's my kink

There are a ton of awesome JVJ d/s-y fills, are you looking for something else? or had you a few particular prompts in mind?

Hello lovely people! A request for help from a fandom newbie. Could anyone give me any information on the French school/university system in the 1820s/1830s, especially as it pertains to Les Amis? Or recommend any good resources on this? Online would be ideal but I do have access to academic libraries (and JStor etc). Anything in French, however, is probably beyond my less-than-mad language skillz. I've done a very small amount of searching on Google books/scholar but I am still so confused, so anything at all would be helpful.

Thanks so much in advance, and also to those who posted reading lists on part 3. Most helpful - although my actual research work will probably suffer...

HEY GUYS LET'S GET A RESOURCES THREAD GOING

Detailed information on the Paris law school compiled by mmebahorel

Giant reading list of doom--feel free to add to it in this thread!

Abaissé has an entire research board

The France of Victor Hugo

Chanvrerie.net, because I'm vain and plugging my own website. Total hodgepodge of stuff including cut scenes from Hugo's drafts, misc. history documents, maps of Paris in the 1830s, slightly out-of-date master list of cast recordings of the muscial + translation of the French libretto, and my absolute baby, the Les Mis Tour Guide. Because all (...ok, most) of those places in the Brick actually exist and I spent my study-abroad year tracking them down in as much obsessive detail as possible and taking photos. (I still need to update it with a page for Digne. And the rest of my Montreuil-sur-Mer photos. And the Trifold Location Of The Convent. And Valjean and Javert's entire nocturnal chase route through the Latin Quarter.)

All the information tags I have open that are not from Wikipedia:

French Surnames - Not very many, so if someone has something better, please share

Les Miserables Locations - Google Map

Who is Who of the movie Les Amis - A blessing for us face-blind 2012 fans ^_^;;
