carnevale musain | a les miserables circus au
the amis are an infamous circus troupe, led by the beautiful and terrible firebreather enjolras, who lures a motley band of performers to roam from town to town, country to country, igniting each performance with their brand of fiery anarchy. marius, a young man soulsick with reality, runs away and joins them after he catches a glimpse of the lovely illusionist cosette. eponine, the lion tamer, terrifies audiences nightly with her singular skill with the wildest of animals, while courfeyrac barely grazes the ground as a trapeze artist one would swear floated through the very air. grantaire, the dark clown, rips bloodied laughter from the crowds as he spins tales about the terrible humour of the human condition. jehan composes narratives for their nightly shows, spinning scripts and structures from which his comrades dance upon. combeferre stands apart from them, handling the “business side of things” with seeming sanity, but careful should he offer to read your tarot, because there are some things he knows that humanity oughn’t.
