cafe de amis

  • me: time to take a shower and think about fluffy things
  • also me: did Grantaire see Enjolras' smile? did he see it? did he realise that he was making Enjolras smile? that he, R, was making Enjolras SMILE? did he died with that idea in mind and that happiness in heart?
  • again me: but what if he didn't? what if he was convinced that Enjolras took his hand with pity, just because he couldn't reject him? what if he was convinced that he was spoiling Enjolras' death? did he feel that he hadn't the right to die with the sun, him, the shadow? what if he was regretting his actions, not because he was going to die but because he suddenly thought that Enjolras didn't want to get shot with him, the drunkard, the useless one?
  • marius: had you been there today you might know how it feels to be struck to the bone in a moment of breathless delight.
  • enjolras: *sighs* ffs
  • marius: had you been there today you might also have known how your world may be changed in just one burst of light and what was right seems wrong and what was wrong seems right.
  • grantaire: red
  • enjolras: fuck no bitch
Les Amis Movie Night
  • Les Amis all crowd into the Musain every Saturday night to watch a movie.
  • Beforehand, they all go on a snack haul at the nearest supermarket, each one of them picking something and filling the cart with it. The cashier is always a bit perplexed to see a large group of young men stocking up on somewhat suspicious foods, but Jehan always sweet-talks them as a distraction.
  • It’s Courfeyrac’s job to select the movie, so he chooses scarier and scarier ones every time (much to his friends’ disapproval – there was once a vote to remove the position from Courf, but it was denied by Combeferre’s loyal vote) in the hopes of finally cracking Feuilly’s stoic regard to horror films, but it never does, and Courfeyrac just ends up being terrified to the point where he can’t fall asleep and stays up all night researching if the movie they watched was based on a true story.
  • Combeferre, contrary to Courfeyrac, is quite the horror movie enthusiast, and quotes the lines as if he has some sort of ESP power.
  • Enjolras is the one who makes comments all throughout the movie, usually receiving a piece of popcorn flicked in his face by Bahorel, whose aim is surprisingly accurate.
  • Grantaire laughs at the most inappropriate parts, but he can’t help it, because the plot is so generic in every horror movie (”Horror movies should just be called ‘White People’s Bad Decisions: Version 273′.”) and really no one argues with that.
  • Les Amis can’t be that mad at Grantaire, though, as Marius is over there in the corner, screaming at least twice during every scene.
  • After every scary part, you can always find Joly pulling out his phone to confirm that this couldn’t happen in real life.
  • Bossuet is always sobbing by the end, regardless of whether or not it was a sad movie.
  • Gavroche, falling asleep at the halfway mark on most nights, often ends up buried under a pile of blankets.
  • Feel free to add!
  • me *writing happily a "permets-tu?" on my hand*: there there it looks cool!
  • a friend: ohhh what does that represent?
  • me *thinking about how deep was the love of R for Enjolras to have R die with him without hesitating one second because he didn't wanted his life without Enjolras even if he wasn't sure of his initiative being welcome and how emotional it is that he and his love and admiration are finally accepted by the man that had always just seen in him the worst and neglected him because he was just too cynic and how beautiful it is that Enjolras finally saw R like a proper brave person and how astonishing the symbolism of this scene is*: notHING aT aLL
