Readers, pray forgive me for my twofold crime:
1. Putting this page up late,
2. Grossly oversimplifying Les Mis. Javert and Valjean are by no means the only characters around here: There's whole plots with Marius, Cosette, Fantine, the whole Thenardier clan...
I did a lot of extra research to try and get this page anywhere near what I could call "right," but I still don't feel totally satisfied. I spent a few days rereading Les Mis, looking for any details to help with vignettes that were already pretty plain. But I couldn't really do backgrounds either, since they really cluttered the page and made it way too busy. :( I also wanted to get Javert on the bridge in there, but there really wasn't enough room.
So yeah, tl;dr: page is late because I put a lot of work into a page that really doesn't look like it. Also Les Miserables would rock each and every one of your worlds, if it has not already.
Sire can also be read on its websites at www.sire.smackjeeves.com and www.drunkduck.com/sire .
Excellent page and very useful in making me want to actually read to book. I also admire the enthusiasm and attention to detail that youre trying to accomplish as that is one of the things that make a story great. Keep up the good work!
Are you oversimlifying the plot? Yes, are you covering all of the points that are currently relevent, also yes, and that's the relevent part.
Javert is exactly the kind of person I hate. Hmm... I guess I could still read the book and be comforted by the fact that he dies in the end...
I think that the way you did this page was great; I have enough background to know who Javert is and I feel comfortable in that knowing (wut?). Also, I like how you drew it. I think that you DID do a good job with this page.
I always loved Javert. I thought he was a brilliant character.
But his heart grew two sizes that day and he just couldn't hack it.
Wait, so Jekyll and Hyde wasn't the only 'True Story'? Sorry if I got that wrong.
Hey, I remember that from the movie!
Sorry, I watched the old black-and-white movie a long time ago and I remembered the scene where Javert kills himself. That part really confused me when I was younger.
Anyways, this is awesome, and now I want to read Jekyll and Hyde and Les Miserables.
Ah wow, I only saw the movie in french class. This book sounds good and popular, now I've got to read it.
I've heard of dedication to your job, but this is ridiculous!
