skygiants: Na Yeo Kyeung, from Capital Scandal, giving a big thumbs-up (seal of approval)
[personal profile] skygiants
So the other day [personal profile] littledust and I had a long and ridiculous conversation about doofball revolutionaries which I am here preserving for posterity. (These chatlogs are of interest to like two people. YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE, I HOPE YOU ENJOY.)

[personal profile] littledust: give me the AU where they all work at a bakery.
[personal profile] skygiants: hahahahahaha oh man
Lee Su Hyun outwardly working for the rival bakery
after apprenticing with Wan and Song Joo
[personal profile] littledust: he is really SABOTAGING THEIR CREPES for justice (and carbs)
[personal profile] skygiants: STEALING THEIR SECRET RECIPES
passing them to the plucky local bakery via Geun Duk
who is sooooo tired of all this subterfuge
and does not understand why it is necessary
[personal profile] littledust: Woo Wan just wants to drink his fancy hipster coffee in peace! but somehow gets drawn into the world of BAKING
[personal profile] skygiants: Yeo Kyung wants to promote TRADITIONAL BAKING
none of this fancy westernized stuff
locally sourced ingredients!
[personal profile] littledust: Soo Jong is determined to pay her employees fairly while providing delicious goods and service with a smile! well, a half-smile.
[personal profile] skygiants: and also making Woo Wan's life a hilarious torment
and, you know, encourage him to do something useful with his lazy hipster life
[personal profile] littledust: ahahaha, the reporter dudes can still work for their ~literary~ gossip magazine.
[personal profile] skygiants: IT'S TRUE
and still take terrible tabloid photos whenever possible
[personal profile] littledust: oh man and Yeo Kyung is FORCED to get a cell phone to... research bread idk... and gets drawn into elaborate text arguments with Woo Wan.
[personal profile] skygiants: she doesn't even WANT a cell phone
and Wan keeps texting her stupid emoticons
and finally she forces him to sign up for an apps that donates ten cents to charity every time you text
[personal profile] littledust: awwww, character growth. kind of.
Lee Su Hyung and Song Joo keep having clandestine meetings where they talk about pastries and stare at each other.
[personal profile] skygiants: and all the bakery girls are like ". . . . no, seriously, we don't understand why they're not doing it yet"
[personal profile] littledust: what's his name is totally the EVIL health inspector who just wants them to get shut down 'cause he's sold out to the corporate chain!
[personal profile] skygiants: LEE KANG GU
he and Yeo Kyung were childhood friends once but he grew up into a jerk who took bribes :-(
after shutting down her father's bakery
which is why she keeps a bookstore instead
the conclusion is the triumphant opening of a BOOKSTORE-BAKERY-CAFE
[personal profile] littledust: YES OMG THREE TASTES THAT GO GREAT TOGETHER
Yeo Kyung tells Wan she will not sleep with him until she achieves her dream of REOPENING HER FATHER'S BAKERY
[personal profile] skygiants: and Wan is like ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME
I will become the BEST BAKER EVER
and gets his super rich father to invest in it
[personal profile] littledust: Min returns from his culinary study abroad and is so proud of his little brother ;_; everyone's like WE THOUGHT YOU WERE DEAD and he was like what no you know how I am about e-mails
[personal profile] skygiants: hahahahahahahaha
In Ho sells out to the corporate bakery
and then suffers a massive crisis of consciece
and decides he should renounce baking forever
but Yeo Kyung is like "we will also need baristas . . ."
[personal profile] littledust: his example inspires Lee Kang Gu to give up his evil bribe taking ways and sign their permits, despite Ueda Co's (aka Sachiko's) disapproval.
[personal profile] skygiants: and the newspaper risks Sachiko's displeasure
by running a huge complimentary feature
about the new bookstore-bakery-cafe
[personal profile] littledust: yeeeees! and when the bookstore-bakery-cafe officially opens, Lee Su Hyun quits way more dramatically than necessary and he and Soo Jong do it in the kitchen, violating the health codes they finally established they were following.
[personal profile] skygiants: and Kang Gu ALMOST catches them
and everything ALMOST falls apart
[personal profile] littledust: Geun Duk is like HOW IS THIS MY LIFE
[personal profile] skygiants: but fortunately they are able to pull a clever bluff at the last minute!
in every au
in all aus
[personal profile] littledust: his life is so hard ;_;
[personal profile] littledust: it also preserves the best parts of Capital Scandal, like hilarious wardrobe choices, Wan yelling at things, IDEALISM GALORE, Geun Duk hating his life, and Lee Su Hyun being NEEDLESSLY ANGSTY ALL THE TIME when he could be doing it.
[personal profile] skygiants: this is Lee Su Hyun's strongest character trait
Kelsey: everyone completely fails to understand why Lee Su Hyun had to GO AND WORK AT THE RIVAL CORPORATION in order to learn their secrets
[personal profile] skygiants: they could have just . . . come up with new recipes . . . .
[personal profile] littledust: WHY NOT JUST WORK AT THE BAKERY AND DATE SOO JONG
[personal profile] skygiants: or he could have just TOLD EVERYONE WHAT HE WAS DOING
but it had to be secret because something something class issues angst something nobody understands except Su Hyun
[personal profile] littledust: Su Hyun is just a glutton for punishment, okay
[personal profile] littledust: Su Hyun attempts to forbid Soo Jong from baking after she burns her arm. Geun Duk is like WHY DO I BOTHER WITH YOU PEOPLE
[personal profile] skygiants: Su Hyun has been SECRETLY FUNNELING MONEY
as well as secret recipes
to the bakery all this time
Song Joo finds out but is like "that's nice, but you're still . . . . not the boss of me . . . ? :D"
"ps my table is still open"
"right now"
[personal profile] littledust: when Wan starts giving Su Hyun advice, he knows he is truly pathetic.
[personal profile] skygiants: "dude"
"you don't understand"
"all these bets about MY love life"
(spoiler: they will not)
Su Hyun passes through Geun Duk a suggestion that Yeo Kyung try and date a big corporate bakery employe to learn their expansion plans
Geun Duk is like WHY
Su Hyun: because it will be funny . . . .
and even a lost unforgiveable soul like me MUST HAVE ENTERTAINMENT SOMEWHERE
Kelsey: that just leads to Wan giving voice to all his feelings at open mic night.
[personal profile] skygiants: terrible karaoke singing
terrible drunken karaoke singing
[personal profile] littledust: a crucial chapter in this hypothetical AU, where they all drink and do karaoke.
[personal profile] skygiants: they can still get trapped out in the countryside and have to bicycle back
after Yeo Kyung gets super drunk
[personal profile] littledust: Song Joo is still ridiculously great at self defense.
[personal profile] skygiants: of course
at one point after Kang Gu threatens to shut down the bookstore and makes Yeo Kyung really upset
she ambushes a corporate dude in an alley, in disguise, and terrifies him
just to relieve her feelings
[personal profile] littledust: I am picturing Song Joo and Su Hyun emerging from the kitchen with suspicious flour handprints and just CRYING laughing
[personal profile] skygiants: Young Ran and the bakery assistants just crack up
and Geun Duk makes an effort not to bang his head repeatedly against the wall
[personal profile] littledust: Wan gives them both the most enthusiastic high fives EVER.
[personal profile] skygiants: and Yeo Kyung a tiny, discreet, super embarrassed thumbs up
[personal profile] littledust: can their bookstore-bakery-cafe please be called REVOLUTION
[personal profile] skygiants: OF COURSE IT CAN

[personal profile] littledust: my friend Ami and I were joking that all Grantaire needs to do is get a tattoo of France.
[personal profile] skygiants: hahahaha IT'S TRUE
the sexiest possible thing he could do to his body
[personal profile] littledust: France tattoo, write quotes from the Declaration of the Rights of Man on his body, wrap self in flag
[personal profile] skygiants: Enjolras approaches
Grantaire is so excited!
Enjolras takes the flag . . . .
. . . goes over to the window . . .
. . . . waves it out enthusiastically and makes a speech . . . . .
Grantaire is like "this was not the point >:|"
[personal profile] littledust: HE TRIES SO HARD
[personal profile] skygiants: what he needs
is a Cha Song Joo
once she bet ten bags of rice on them getting together
Enjolras doesn't stand a chance
[personal profile] littledust: these fandoms were made for crossovers, despite the 100 years separating them. and, you know, geograpy.
[personal profile] skygiants: Woo Wan would LOVE hanging out with Courfeyrac and Bossuet
[personal profile] littledust: HAHAHA O M G
[personal profile] skygiants: he never understod
that revolution
could be so much fun
and so full of booze
[personal profile] littledust: Su Hyun and Jean Valjean hanging out ;_;
[personal profile] skygiants: omg
I love them both but they would encourage each other in the worst ways ;__;
"yes I agree you have no choice but to quietly make secret recompense while pretending you have no feelings for her"
"let's go have a drink and brood about it"
[personal profile] littledust: and then they bond over caring deeply for prostitutes
[personal profile] skygiants: Song Joo is like OH MY GOD
drags Valjean over to Cosette
sits him down and is like
or I will shoot you in the head
[personal profile] littledust: Song Joo single-handedly holds down all barricades everywhere
[personal profile] skygiants: Javert actually respects Su Hyun
and thinks Kang Gu is a huge tool
[personal profile] littledust: HAHA YES
[personal profile] skygiants: he's really worried by these feelings Su Hyun seems to hae for this revolutionary
9:02 PM Kelsey: Gavroche teaches In Hu how to have a poker face EVER
[personal profile] skygiants: hahahahahahaha
In Ho doesn't understand how an eleven-year-old became his mentor
and yet . . . .
[personal profile] littledust: Wan and Soo Jong are secretly pleased that the revolution is now 1000% more musical.
[personal profile] skygiants: Geun Duk, on the other hand . . .
although he likes Enjolras
it is his idea of what a revolutionary should be
Yeo Kyung and Enjolras are best platonic revolutionary buddies
and they are both secretly horrified to find themselves falling for dissolute drinkers due to Song Joo's machinations
and spend a lot of time hanging out and attempting to bolster their CELIBATE REVOLUTIONARY FEELINGS
[personal profile] littledust: THOSE POOR UNFORTUNATE SOULS. when they can't fight this feeling anymore, they console themselves by saying, "At least we're inspiring them to revolution! ...right?"
[personal profile] skygiants: "no sex until the country is liberated though!"
"if you see us making out in a bar, Yeo Kyung, I EXPECT YOU TO INTERVENE AND REMIND ME OF THIS"
[personal profile] littledust: it's all going beautifully according to plan until Yeo Kyung is far too awkward to pry them apart.
[personal profile] skygiants: besides Cha Song Joo is distracting her on the other side of the bar
so she tries to get over there! BUT SHE CAN'T
and then Woo Wan is like LOOK
[personal profile] littledust: and that is THE most compelling argument anyone could ever give, ever
plus she accidentally took a sip of wine
and in turn Song Joo turns to Su Hyun and is like EVEN THEM
[personal profile] skygiants: hahahahahahaha
and Su Hyun is like ". . . . . . I have to go"
and angsts off in a secret policeman-y fashion
[personal profile] littledust: Eponine pours Song Joo a stiff drink.
[personal profile] skygiants: Song Joo recruits Eponine so fast though
"no more brooding, time for REVOLUTIONARY SHOPPING"
[personal profile] littledust: YES
[personal profile] skygiants: and she and Yeo Kyung hang out all the time
and Yeo Kyung gives her encouraging speeches
about giving up BOYS in favor of THE COUNTRY
[personal profile] littledust: Eponine ends up dating one of the courtesans and Yeo Kyung is like, "That's... not what I meant..."
[personal profile] skygiants: YES
Eponine/Young Ran
Eponine helps teach her how to read
[personal profile] littledust: ;____; the best thing
[personal profile] skygiants: Yeo Kyung is like "I guess . .. . if it helps the cause of literacy . . ."
[personal profile] littledust: everyone is happy in revolutionland! all they needed was the band together!
[personal profile] skygiants: BY THEIR POWERS COMBINED
Capital Scandal to fix all their relationship problems and Les Mis to fix all their not actually having enough revolutionaries in the secret organization problems
[personal profile] littledust: EXACTLY
all they need is a TARDIS and both plots are SOLVED

Set the bakery AU in the 70s, and you could even bring actual revolution back into it? They could be student democracy activists under Park Chung-hee. XD

Lee Su Hyun probably read Les Mis while at uni in Japan, so I can definitely see the crossover happening in a dream sequence.

Aha, excellent!

I need to see Capital Scandal and would watch it if I could find out where to watch it. Also I love both of these and would spend far too much time at at bakery-bookstore-cafe Revolution!

Also I kind of want to write more Les Mis fic, its such a messed up world.

Date: 2013-01-31 02:27 am (UTC)
ceitfianna: (thank you in a dictionary)
From: [personal profile] ceitfianna
Yay! Thank you. This will be my weekend watching. Revolutionaries will inspire me to speak up more at work, I hope.
