Lord Voldemort: The Musical! (Les Miserables Potterized!) by Schmerg_The_Impaler
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 40]
Summary: Yet another musical twisted by yours truly, it's the tale of Voldemort's life set to the tune of my Les Miserables soundtrack!
The real musical of Les Miserables was created by Claude-Michel Schönberg, Herbert Kretzmer, and Alain Boublil.
There is some violence and it really is not a silly musical-- there are a few funny parts, but there are some pretty sad or intense bits. AND LOTS OF PEOPLE DIE. And there are some cannibalism-happy bits with Fenrir, including a whole song called "Man Eat Man." Beware.
Wow. Just wow. This is amazing. I listened to the soundtrack of Les Mis while reading this, and I want to someday put on a production of it. A few of the parts may be a bit tricky, though. You didn't leave out anything! Not even the Wedding Chorale. This must have been so difficult to write, because it is so amazing. When Neville sang Gavroche's part in "The Attack on the Ministry/Javert at the Barricade" - Oh yeah! Neville is awesome! This is so - perfect. Fenrir Greyback is portrayed very accurately, and so is Bellatrix. Fenrrir is absolutely VULGAR. I also love how it ends with Peeves. I LOVE his "We did it, we bashed them..." thing. This is SO wonderful!
Sunshine spilled down onto the small grassy spot through a window in the tall trees. She stood a couple of yards back, staring at eleven letters cut into rock. It was beautiful, and yet, to Hermione’s eyes, nowhere near a worthy enough tribute for a life so full of rambunctious joy.
Wow. This is so beautiful.
Summary: In November 1981, Remus Lupin returns to the headquarters of the Order of the Phoenix.
I love this! I am obsessed with Les Miserables, so I just had to read it, and I'm glad I did. Poor Remus.
Author's Response: Hi, thanks for your review. Yes I rather like Les Mis too and I've always loved this song, and it has struck me how similar the barricade is to the first wizarding war. Also Remus is one of my favourite characters and I think he possibly has the most tragic character trajectory of anyone in the potterverse. ~Katrina
