if hugo wasnt trying to insinuate that grantaire was madly in love with enjolras then like what the fuck was he doing
it’s not even subtext
it’s not even just text at this point either
it’s like the text climbs out of the brick and takes you by the shoulders and shakes you and then hits you over the head and you are unconscious and you dream of the ghost of victor hugo whispering “it’s canon” in your ear
AM I THE ONLY ONE WHO NOTICED THIS?!
It’s easily overlooked, but it’s very clear what’s happening if you’re looking for it.(it’s an hour and 45 minutes into Les Mis 25th, if anyone wants to check it out.)
That’s Enjolras. Drinking. From Grantaire’s bottle.
Let me rephrase that:
Enjolras, who doesn’t drink and constantly berates Grantaire for doing so, is drinking. From Grantaire’s bottle, no less. Because Grantaire asked him to “drink with me.” (Or because he’s just as scared as Grantaire and I honestly don’t know which is worse.)
Let me clarify even more:
HIS LIPS ARE TOUCHING THE BOTTLE THAT GRANTAIRE HAS BEEN CONSTANTLY DRINKING FROM. IT’S PROBABLY THE CLOSEST WE’VE EVER GOTTEN TO A KISS BETWEEN THESE TWO.
Why hasn’t the e/R fandom exploded over this yet?
Enjolras/Grantaire Fic Recs
Blowjobs and Classical references ahoy.
The Lips of Revolutionaries by pyrosauce — Grantaire wants, more than anything, to kiss Enjolras. Enjolras will not allow himself to kiss Grantaire.
In The Mouth of the Oppressed by magnificentbastards — “or, The One Where Enjolras Sucks Grantaire Off While Getting Him To Recite Rhetoric Justifying Regicide.” Does what it says on the tin.
An Act, A Scene by Ark — Eponine watches.
Thirty-Two Times by Ark — sex and death, pretty much. ‘“Swear,” says Grantaire, “Or I will know you are planning to exclude me from the fight, and I will drink through your revolution instead.” ‘
Maybe In Another Universe I Deserve You by zarimav — Enjolras will never stop finding causes to die for, and Grantaire will never stop dying for Enjolras.
In The Light by mybelovedcheshire — Grantaire escorts an exhausted Enjolras home, and stays the night to keep an eye on him. About as close to fluff as this pairing gets.
Infections from Morpheus by pyrosauce— ‘It’s best not to over analyse dreams.’
“Missing Scene” fics, because they need their own section:
The Libation Bearer by kenaz — “You simply must be right, and that is all. Because If you are wrong, that means that I am right: that life is meaningless and ugly, and that nothing will ever change.”
Tis Not Too Late (to seek a newer world) by Ark — “Enjolras is Grantaire’s cause. That night, he feels himself a ragged banner.”
Last Rites by startwithsparks — ‘“I,” he murmured, then motioned towards the window and the students below, “this is not I,” and finally rested his fingers in the same spot on Enjolras’ chest, “and this too is I.”’
Plyades Accepted by ember_firedrake — because everyone in this fandom has come to a consensus that something happened after “Drink With Me”
And finally, Modern AUs
‘Le Révolutionaire’, an A.B.C Press Publication (series) by astrid_fischer — modern AU in which the Amis run a newspaper together.
