what if instead of being similar to tattoos, the wings were carved into montparnasse's and enjolras's backs? (in a lot of the drawings they sort of looked that way to me?) and they never really close, theyre always slightly open and pretty vulnerable, like wince-if-you-touch vulnerable? thanks for listening!

Oh my god.

It bleeds the first week after the fall. A lot. They both thought the carving would close att some point, that it was just the burn of the fall and that their human bodies would get used to it. But they don’t.

For the longest time, Enjolras and Montparnasse put on cotton pads over the carvings, drawing cotton wings on each others backs. They didn’t talk, they just winced and groaned.

Neither of them wear white shirts, just in case the fragile balance they managed to achieve collapses. That’s why Enjolras always has his red vest, and Montparnasse his leather jacket.

Enjolras had to excuse himself during an ABC meeting. His back was killing him. Grantaire found him bent over the bathroom sink, trying to catch his breath. In an effort to comfort him, Grantaire gave him a little pat in the back, earning a yelp. A red rose bloomed onto Enjolras’ back, soaking his shirt, much to Grantaire’s horror. He couldn’t say much to justify the existence of the carved open wings on his back.

I’m so sick of this stigma that theatre geeks’ favorite musicals can’t be High School Musical or Les Mis or Wicked or Phantom or Hamilton or any other popular musicals. Like. There is a reason it is popular, and that’s because it’s good.
