Enjolras falls in love with a sweater. (And its owner.)



Notes: Early morning, not enough time for a long run so a 5k happened instead.

19m 03s. Good solid pace.

The number on the scales is not so good. Had no idea that I had dropped that low. It’s the lowest weight I’ve ever been in my adult life. That’s about the stress of recent events.

I also have really ugly feet and runner’s toenails.

There were about ten inches between him and Enjolras on the couch. The air felt electric, like there was static energy humming in the space that separated them. He glanced sideways. Enjolras’ eyes were glued to the screen of his TV. Zie had hir arms folded, which meant Grantaire couldn’t sneakily reach over and grab hir hand. Really, Enjolras looked just as uncomfortable and awkward as Grantaire felt. It was difficult to fathom how the confident, passionate Enjolras could really be unsure of hirself.

This felt so much like Grantaire’s first-ever date, back when he was fourteen and had no idea how to handle himself. Trust Enjolras to turn him back into a teenager.

"For the record, feminism by definition is: ‘The belief that men and women should have equal rights and opportunities. It is the theory of the political, economic and social equality of the sexes.’

I started questioning gender-based assumptions when at eight I was confused at being called “bossy,” because I wanted to direct the plays we would put on for our parents—but the boys were not.

When at 14 I started being sexualized by certain elements of the press.

When at 15 my girlfriends started dropping out of their sports teams because they didn’t want to appear “muscly.”

When at 18 my male friends were unable to express their feelings.

I decided I was a feminist and this seemed uncomplicated to me. But my recent research has shown me that feminism has become an unpopular word. Apparently I am among the ranks of women whose expressions are seen as too strong, too aggressive, isolating, anti-men and, unattractive.

Why is the word such an uncomfortable one?”
