It's called posting, then responding in the wrong thread @ 4 a.m.--I thought this was the one about the orchestrations. :oops:

I believe they are the same.

I'm not sure--a SE I saw cut the "The rain that brings you here is heaven blessed..." stanza. On second thought, it was probably just that one production.

They did that in one I saw. The other (which had illegally done a lot more modifications anyway) added it back.

I've put the cuts in italics.

EPONINE
Don't you fret, M'sieur Marius
I don't feel any pain
A little fall of rain
Can hardly hurt me now
You're here, that's all I need to know
And you will keep me safe
And you will keep me close
And rain will make the flowers grow.

MARIUS
But you will live, 'Ponine - dear God above,
If I could heal your wounds with words of love.

EPONINE
Just hold me now, and let it be.
Shelter me, comfort me

MARIUS
You would live a hundred years
If I could show you how
I won't desert you now...

EPONINE
The rain can't hurt me now
This rain will wash away what's past
And you will keep me safe
And you will keep me close
I'll sleep in your embrace at last.

The rain that brings you here
Is Heaven-blessed!
The skies begin to clear
And I'm at rest
A breath away from where you are
I've come home from so far
So don't you fret, M'sieur Marius

I don't feel any pain
A little fall of rain
Can hardly hurt me now

That's all I need to know
And you will keep me safe
And you will keep me close

MARIUS(in counterpoint)
Hush-a-bye, dear Eponine,
You won't feel any pain
A little fall of rain
Can hardly hurt you now
I'm here

I will stay with you
Till you are sleeping

EPONINE
And rain...

MARIUS
And rain...

EPONINE
Will make the flowers...

MARIUS
Will make the flowers... grow...

I think it's time to have the Thread Necromancy Talk.

In general, the seach function is a wondrous and awe-inspiring thing that can keep you from asking the same question ten other people have already spammed the forum with, among many other useful things. However, the threads that the search function usually turns up are dead and buried by forum standards, and people can get a little tetchy when you blithely drag them out of their peaceful rest just to say "I agree with Joe" or "i luv eponine, cossette r teh suxx0rz!"

Now, there is a time and place for thread necromancy. If you read through a topic and think it's interesting, and you have something new and different to say that would justify dragging the thread up from the dead, by all means go ahead. Just be aware that this is the conversational equivalent of resuming the heated South Park vs. Family Guy debate you and your friends were having an hour ago, even though you've spent the past twenty minutes talking about cars. Make sure it's worth it, and at least acknowledge what you're doing: "I know nobody's posted to this thread for six months, but..."

Also, if the contents of the thread are better suited for the Dead Horse Thread (and you can find a partial list of such topics on the first FAQ post), do us all a favor and just let it lie. If you absolutely must regale us with your thoughts on Lea vs. Frances, that's what the dead horse thread is for.

What I don't understand is why some fans hate Cosette.

Look, I KNOW that ya'll wanted Marius to choose Eponine, but that's no reason to despise Cosette. She has beautiful songs and is a very sweet girl, and deserves Marius just as much as Eponine.

Dear SomeoneLikeYou:
On this forum, you're not going to see much Cosette-bashing. I came here and I was absolutely delighted to find that someone like myself, who absolutely adored Cosette, was not going to be met with the typical "Ew NO EPONINE'S SO MUCH BETTER AND MARIUS IS STUPID FOR MARRYING COSETTE." ](*,)

I guess some people hate her because isn't everyone OMG just like Eponine in the sense that they've liked someone who didn't like them back? And so they identify with Eponine and think of Cosette as someone who just sits around and gets the guy.

What these people don't take into account is the fact that class differences would have made it almost impossible for an Eponine/Marius pairing to work (regardless of the fact that Marius didn't have feelings for Eponine). They also don't take into account the fact that Eponine was not a Lea-Salonga-pretty "hot girl in rags" (as I've, sadly, actually seen her described).

Every anti-Cosette rant I've heard types her as a boring, emotionless, pretty bitch. These people also obviously don't listen to the lyrics of "In My Life." I consider that song to be way more emotionally revealing than pop-anthem "On My Own."

Meh. I've never understood Eppie-boppers. Or Cosette-haters of any stripe. But that's just me.
