Chapter: Act 2

By the way, my favorites were "Castle On A Cloud," and "Do You Hear The People Sing," because I love the originals of those songs. Also, I'm almost tempted to say "A Heart Full Of Love" was improved. Okay, fine, not really, but seriously, I love Les Mis, but "A Heart Full Of Love" is so cheesy.

Author's Response: Hehehe, thanks! I think "Do You Hear The People Sing" was one of my better ones.

I actually love the song "A Heart Full of Love," because I like to sing both Marius and Cosette's parts in silly character voices (I actually have a recording of myself doing "Les Mis in Fifteen Minutes" in which I play all the parts), and the song is very fun for that. But I also love Michael Ball's voice, so I'd probably listen to him singing anything. Too bad Cosette's so shrill...

Oh, lord, this is genius. If I wasn't a huge fan of Les Miserables I wouldn't have thought it was half as funny, but I grew up listening to Les Mis, and I honestly have no idea how you managed this, but you did, and it's hilarious. Great job...


Author's Response: Oh my gosh! *Hugs you* I almost never get reviews for this. I'm so glad you liked it and that I'm not the only Mis fan on this site.

Author's Response: Oh, yay! Not very many people on MNFF are familiar with Les Mis, so it's always exciting for me to get reviews on this. I had a lot of fun writing my spoof of Bring Him Home.

*tacklehugs Schmergo*

*Schmergo turns purple*

*lets go*

Wow. What can I say? This is brilliant. You’ve got the timing, the rhythm, and the rhyming down pat, and this was an enjoyable read. You’re scarily talented at this — I can’t spoof to save my life. (Really. I’m terrible.)

Let a creepy stalker boy dream.

HA. Except, you know, Snape wasn’t that stalker-y. But I digress.

ASPLODES. ZOMG. THAT IS THE BESTEST WORD EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am SO starting a petition to put that in the dictionary. ^_^

Nobody to cry once I have fried you Oh. Oh my Godric. Hysterical. I got a mental image of Voldemort lowering Harry into a vat of deep-fry oil and going, “Yes! Deep fry you!”

. . .

My mind is a STRAAAAAAAANGE place.

I’m just wondering… is it weird, having spoofed the same scene in two separate spoofs? (I’m talking about the Department of Mysteries scene that you also spoofed with ‘The Phantom of the Opera.’ Just curious.)

And I will kill you now
And I will kill you here.

You say that quite a lot…

That’s low!

I laughed out loud here. It’s so true! In every book, Voldy goes: “I’m going to kill you now, Harry/Dumbledore/random person on the street.”

*Harry/Dumbledore/random person on the street gets away*


I teared up at “Learning” and “Empty Chairs At The House Tables.” That was so sad! *joins Voldy in EMO SOBBING* (Even though I’m not emo. Like, at all.)

The Final Battle. Did I ever mention that I HATED the Final Battle? (Well, now I did.) However, you have taken a scene I loathed and turned it into a Musical Extravaganza. It’s almost tolerable.

Basically, Schmergo, you’re brilliant. Absolutely, positively, brilliant.

- Katie

P.S. Please do check your PMs. I sent you something rather urgent.

Author's Response: Awwww! *Ish purple* I personally saw Snape as creepily Stalker-ish (reread the scene where he first meets Lily!)

It's weird doing the same scenes in different ways indeed, especially since I'm doing a Lord Voldemort musical on Wicked... I keep writing some of the same lines, as well!

I actually liked the final battle... I originally loved it right up to the face-off between Harry and Volders, and then I thought it was a cop-out. But then I reread it, and I thought their face-off was really good. I don't know why.

Thank you so much for all of your great reviews!

I've read all of the PMs, I just have had trouble finding a way to respond.

I've finally had time to read the whole chapter! *sighs*

This was both depressing and, in a twisted way, comical (though Les Mis isn't at all, really...) I've never seen the musical and the only song I can remember is Lovely Ladies (and bits of Castle on a Cloud) so I was making up the tunes as I went (most were to the finale of a musical I'm writing =)p) But i still enjoyed it all the same, and will hopefully read chappie # 2. Wonderful!~


Author's Response: Thanks so much! I'm glad you enjoyed it, even though you didn't know the songs. I think that the second act is funnier.

Chapter: Songs From Act One

LES MIS is my favorite musical ever, I have the entire thing memorised! Woot! (This accounts for the fact that I noticed that the last song in Act 1 is 'One Day More', but I don't think many people can write a spoof of that song since there are...ummm....15 different parts) And this musical was almost better than the first. Castle on a Cloud was my favorite, as well as the ones originally sung by Fantine, my favorite Les Mis character.

Can't wait for the second part...CAN YOU SAY 'FINALE'? (I wonder if there's a wedding chorale...or Little People! Ooooh, the anticipation is killing me!)

Genius ideas as usual!

Author's Response: Oh, my gosh! Wow! I had no idea this was your favourite!

Now, my spoof goes according to my original Broadway recording audiocassette word-for-word, in which Act One ends with "Do You Hear The People Sing." I did all the songs in order.

So you will see One Day More. It's in Act Two. That's my favourite song from the whole show! And there is a Wedding Chorale, but I only used the version of Little People in "Javert at the Barricade" that starts with Gavroche singing "Good evening, dear inspector..."

The original version isn't on my Broadway recording.

Author's Response: Aw man, I wanted to be a heroine! No, but really, thank you so much! I do love Wicked, but I'm having trouble thinking of a reference frame. DH is too complicated to cover just in the span of one moosical. I was thinking of doing something about Snape, but this Les Mis thing has a lot of Snape in it, so I don't know.

That was soo funny
you had me laughing for 25.3 seconds at one point
I really love these poems that you do

my favourite song had to be

7. Castle of Hogwarts (Castle on a Cloud)

TOM: There is a castle called Hogwarts
I’m going there in just one week.
No more will I be called a freak
Not in the castle of Hogwarts.

I killed kids’ pets, I stole their toys.
Hated and feared by girls and boys.
I’ll start afresh, I’ll find cohorts
There at the castle of Hogwarts.

There is a lady working here
Public servant, but slave to beer.
She takes my hand, I flinch at her touch.
She lies to me, says she’ll miss me so much.

So many days I’ve spent alone
I’ll find a place that’s all my own.
I’ll find a place all… Voldemort’s
There at the castle of Hogwarts.

THAT was a classic

Welllll done



Author's Response: Aw man, apply to the Guiness World Book of Records for longest laugh! I had fun with "Castle on a Cloud" because that's such an innocent song in the original version, and twisting it to fit Voldemort is always fun.

OK, I’m back with a less terrible 0_0-filled review.

First of all, “I Dreamed A Dream” made me tear up. It was beautiful and sad and… *sobs*

MINERVA: He thinks he’s royalty–a lord? Absurd!
I’m thinking ‘queen’ would be a better word!
Heir of Slytherin?
Don’t buy that a bit.
He’s no more than just another creepy git.
Probably insane
Won’t wear underwear.
Tends to wear eyeliner–though he’s got great hair!
What a cruel trick of Dippet’s
Lumping me with such a louse.
It’s hardly a secret he’s an awful prefect for his house!

xD I laughed out loud there. In fact, the entire ending of that song was hilarious.

So why does J.K. Rowling still scare me? *gigglesnorts*

You know, even though this is a musical, you’ve got Tom’s character down pat. You’ve managed to capture the creepiness and the evil, plus you added in some funny lines. Perfect.

Also, I was just curious as to what you imagine Tom to sound like. I picture him sounding like the Phantom from ‘The Phantom of the Opera,’ perhaps mixed with Chauvelin from ‘The Scarlet Pimpernel’ once he becomes Voldemort.

I completely agree with Stubby (Stubbornly_appeared). You could be the next Weird Al.

Until next time!

- Katie

P.S. Chapter two of “Becoming Extraordinary” is up! Woot?

P.P.S. You said you wanted to take the Potter's Pentagon Quiz I made, so try it here: Let me know who you get!

Author's Response: Thanks so much! Since you're hilarious, your opinion means a lot to me! I imagine Voldemort sounding like Michael Crawford, but I don't really have a mental image of what Tom would sound like *before* he turned into Voldemort and got the high-pitched Michael Crawford voice...

I will definitely read your story! Oh, and I got Emma on the quiz!

Ooh, here's my fave bit:

VOLDEMORT: Had you been here on time, you might also have seen
All the colours of spells, all the bright beams of light.

SNAPE: Why does this seem so wrong and Lily seems so right?

DEATH EATERS: Green–the noble killing curse!
Red–the dashing Crucios!
Green–a bruise that’s getting worse!
Red–a victim’s blood that flows!

SNAPE: (Simultaneous with above) Green–envy that never dies!
Red–the pain when she’s not there!
Green–the colour of her eyes!
Red–the colour of her hair!

VOLDEMORT: Severus, you’re no longer a child.
I do not doubt you mean it well
But now there is a higher call.
Look at me and my shattered soul!
We strive toward a larger goal.
Love doesn’t matter, not at all!

EVERYONE BUT SNAPE: Snake–the life that springs from death!
Skull–a victim’s skeleton!
Skull–someone who’s smelled Snape’s breath!
Snake–the sign of Slytherin!

LOL. Love your spoofs, Schmergo. You could be the next Weird Al or something....

Author's Response: Oh, I'd love to be the next Weird Al. Like, as an actual job. My mum doesn't support it, though, sadly. That song was one of my favourite bits, though.

Author's Response: Hahahahah, that's a lot of faces. *Schmergo's intelligent comment of the day* I had to do something like this. If anyone deserves to have a musical about him, it's Voldershmookins.
