Enjolras is gay : confirmed

Fuck. That’s it. I was trying to read the notes on Enjolras that @silver-soliloquy posted : 

I am not sure but it seems that I can read “seins de femme” (woman’s breast) to describe Enjolras but that’s not even what I want to talk about. No, what I can read for sure is this : “car uranien ou Vierge”. Vierge means virgin, but “uranien” ? I didn’t know myself. I thought maybe I had misread, but then I typed it into google and :

“Uranien is is a very rare word used at the end of the 19th century except by the Anglo-saxons, to describe male homosexuals that were until then called pederasts”

Victor Hugo writes that Enjolras was uranien and/or a virgin (I don’t understand everything he writes). Am I wrong somewhere ? How come no one talks about it ?? Maybe someone that’s been in the fandom for longer than me can help me ?

Ok so I saw a post about Jehanparnasse's wedding and I was thinking: At Enjolras and Grantaire's wedding everyone expects R to be drunk at the party cause he is celebrating but R is 100% sober and only drinks on the toast. Also, do you have any HC for Enjoltaire's wedding? Id love to read them ❤️

  • Oh yeah no, Grantaire has been sober for 2 years at that point and only drinks Champomy for the toast, which is basically bubbly apple juice for kids, but he doesn’t care. He’s happier, he’s with the man he loves, he’s getting better and better, and all his friends are here
  • They don’t get a religious ceremony though. They get married for the benefits, to be honest. And to piss off some anti same-sex marriage people.
  • It’s a cityhall wedding is what I’m saying, it’s quick, sweet, they have to sign documents, and BAM husband and husband
  • Doesn’t keep Courfeyrac from crying
  • After that they just have a big celebration amongst friends and family
  • Embarrassing powerpoint presentations prepared by Combeferre, Courfeyrac, Joly and Bossuet
  • One Republic’s Something I Need is definitely playing

Hey this is your reminder that Eponine would probably punch a person out for you

Courfeyrac would want to cuddle with you

Combeferre would want to hear more about what you are saying

Bossuet would be very sympathetic to your terrible day

If Jehan ever saw you they would write you a poem

Joly would ask if you’ve been getting all your vitamins

Enjolras would do anything to defend your right to exist

Feuilly would want to spend what little free time he has with you

If Cosette could she would bake you something sweet

Bahorel would think you look cute as fuck no matter what

Grantaire would love to rant about the world with you

Marius would love to hear about your day

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.

Fun thought: the triumvirate trying to out-punk each other. Courf as pastel punk, Enj as gothic punk, and Ferre as steampunk

I think Enjolras would be more like street punk? But Combeferre and steampunk is just… DEAD ON! You just KNOW he loves that kind of stuff!

I’m just picturing them in a very sailor moon esque way, they unite to form the Ultimate Punk :’)

one of the les mis quotes that breaks my heart the most is in enjolras’ barricade speech where he says “the nineteenth century is great, but the twentieth century will be happy”

it’s just so hopeful and naive and i think it was something victor hugo himself probably believed. That all the great dramatic events of the 19th century would be a thing of the past and that the 20th century might be a little less romantic, but there would be peace and people would be happy. But he was totally wrong and the 20th century was both world wars and france was occupied and took huge blows to it’s spirit as a nation probably more so than anything before in hugo’s time. It’s such a great line honestly, and it’s perhaps even more poignant because of it’s tragic irony from a modern perspective. Idk that part just breaks my heart to pieces every time. 

Let's play a game called

“Do I Love The Character Because Of The Actor Who Played It or Do I Love The Actor Because Of The Character He Played”

We all know that Enjolras was on the barricade to fight for Liberty

And we know Combeferre was on the barricade to fight for Equality

And we know Courfeyrac was on the barricade to fight for Brotherhood


But Bahorel was on the barricade to fight for the right to exist beyond ‘class’

But Feuilly was on the barricade to fight for children without anything else

But Joly was on the barricade to fight for those choosing between medicine and food

But Jehan was on the barricade to fight for the right to live fully

But Bosset was on the barricade to fight for freedom of the future

And Grantaire was on the barricade to fight for his friends, the goodness in life
