I'm not advising you take up arms yet, but I would strongly suggest you check your ammunition supplies. Taylor Swift has been offered the role of Eponine in the Les Mis movie.
Read about it (and the offer to Amanda Sigfried to be Cosette) here: broadwayworld.com/article/Aman…
Part of why this is a problem: the cast will have to sing live as in... without autotune. www.cinemablend.com/new/Les-Mi…

I hope you all had a good holiday, I think over all our Secret Santa went pretty well. Hope you all liked your gifts! Just a few group things to get in order as we start the new year. Permission Issues:
As some of you may have read in PhantomFans
, if it's not yours, you can't submit it. Photo-manips made with photos you do not own the rights to (i.e. screen shots of the movies or professional photos from the show) are no longer allowed in the group. Along the same lines, dolls made with a doll-generator are not allowed either.
(Note that this is a grandfathering in... i.e. things submitted before will not be removed, but new submissions will be. You may or may not be notified if your piece is removed, sometimes I don't have time).
One thing I do need you guys to give me some feedback on are the 3D things... they look like SIMS to me. I don't know enough about how these are made. Are they generated by a computer, or do you actually have to put some work into them... I'm not just talking about customization- that's like a doll generator, I mean some actual detailed creation?
I need to know more about them to know whether or not they should be allowed in the group. Fiction and Writings Folder?
Would you guys like one? I know there aren't as many submitted for this group, but it can be a neater way to draw attention to/sort out those kinds of deviations.
Thing is, for PhantomFans
we have a rule that only the first chapter of any fan fiction may be submitted - to keep the folder from getting messy. It's so much easier for people to browse the by first chapters only, then follow the author if they want to read the rest. I would probably enforce that rule here too.
Let me know what you guys think! Contest?
I have some spare points and we have some left over ideas on the table. Anyone up for a spring contest?
Ideas: Les Huezejefe (I dunno, I don't do well with French... it was "the Happy Ones") [EDIT: Starlene
has kindly informed me it is "Les Heureux"] , Fan fiction contest (although, we could save that for next fall), any other good ideas you have?
