16 Things Only Les Misérables Fans Will Understand

14. You Want To Believe In Love At First Sight

The one thing that really annoys you about Les Mis is the fact that Marius falls head over heels in love with Cosette at one glance, ONE. Technically, it isn't love, it's just lust, right? What if they eventually spoke to each other and realised that they couldn't stand to be around one another? Of course you're rooting for them but you're rather bitter that life and love don't work like that. And you're probably pretty certain that if you ever declared your feelings for anyone like Marius, you would never see them ever again. They'd also ask what you're doing creeping outside their house in the middle of the night because that's not what 'normal' people do.
