I’m in Paris with the slightest thing you do.
I’m in Paris with your eyes, your mouth,
I’m in Paris with… all points south.
Am I embarrassing you?
I’m in Paris with you.
[snip for space]
This is amazing, thank you so much!! I am so glad to have this knowledge now.
okay but what if later that night
"R, what the hell."
”I know your game you little shit”
yessss and then Grantaire is just like
"I don’t know what you’re talking about"
and Courfeyrac goes “You realize he has no idea what you meant”
"Are you serious."
"Did someone explain? No, hang on a second, how can he be twenty two years old and be as oblivious as he is??”
"You know how he is. He eventually got Feuilly to explain it to him. It was uncomfortable to watch."
"Oh, god, how did he react?”
"Turned red as a tomato and left pretty quickly after that."
and because they’re both little shits Courfeyrac finally cracks and starts giggling and Grantaire joins him and they’re both just falling over themselves laughing in Grantaire’s doorway
(shh don’t worry about it friend)
this is probably the greatest thing ever but can you imagine how the conversation with feuilly went down
"Enjolras, how have you taken it?"
"I’m not sure I follow what you mean."
"Do you not remember earlier tonight?"
"… When Grantaire offered to black my boots? What? is there another meaning to that?"
oh gosh oh no it would be the most uncomfortable conversation les amis have ever had, like Feuilly would also turn red and they would both just be stammering and interrupting each other and trying to act unaffected and Feuilly would just be like
"Enjolras, you know— Grantaire has only the utmost respect and love for you, you must know that—"
"I don’t take your meaning—"
"I do believe he was in earnest—"
"In earnest about what? Is this what Courfeyrac was giggling about earlier? Oh— oh no, was this a reference to certain— er— pleasures— but Courfeyrac knows I never understand those— oh, it is, isn’t it? Oh god—”
"Er, yes— of a kind— you must understand, he meant no disrespect—"
”Feuilly, will you just tell me what is going on? Specifically,”
and Feuilly finally just accepts defeat and explains, without meeting Enjolras’s eyes and finally Enjolras is quiet for a long time until he just goes
"Thank you for explaining, Feuilly. You are a good friend and I’m sorry for any discomfort I have caused. Now, I am needed elsewhere, I must take my leave of you— à demain, mon frère— goodbye," and gathers up his belongings and rushes out the door
(I will have you know that I laughed so loudly my neighbors came to see if I was okay)
But oh my god the next meeting would be so awkward like
Enjolras walks in early as usual and is bustling around all business, but then he sees R sitting at his usual table laughing with Joly or something and just freezes
Joly of course picks up on this and awkwardly excuses himself and quickly leaves the room and that leaves Enjolras and Grantaire alone, both of them bright red and neither of them trying to make eye contact
If you ever feel sad just remember that in 1800’s France, “I’ll black your boots” was slang for “I’ll give you a blowjob”
Grantaire literally said “I’ll suck your dick” to Enjolras’s face and it went straight over his head he is a dumb gay nerd
"Rise ‘n shine."
Never touches this again.
No blinding light or tunnels to gates of white
Just our hands clasped so tight
You and I have floated here on the stream that brings from the fount.
At the heart of time, love of one for another.
We have played along side millions of lovers.
Soul Mates -I don’t know how it is you’re so familiar to me—or why it feels less like I am getting to know you and more as though I am remembering who you are. How every smile, every whisper, brings me closer to the impossible conclusion that I have known you before, I have loved you before, in another time, a different place—some other existence.
high school au where e&R get paired up for that flour sack baby project because the teacher thought Enjolras was a girl the entire year and that sends Enjolras on a sj rant about how the thought that men are incapable of raising children is a result of patriarchy in society
