We talk a
lot about Enjolras interrupting his speech to praise Feuilly and I have nothing
about it, but what if that weren’t the first time he does something similar?
What if he loved his friends so much he just can’t help but say it whenever it
comes to his mind?
Like one day
he’s discussing education with Combeferre and stops in the middle of a very
eloquent argument to say: “Oh, my friend, we’re so lucky that you exist!
You’re so kind and wise and caring and you’ll be a great doctor, but you could
also become a teacher and all the children would love you deeply!”
explaining why monarchy sucks and when he has everyone charmed by his words he
exclaims: “My dear Bossuet, you always manage to make me laugh when I’m at
my worst and I really wish I could share some of my luck with you because you
deserve all the good things in life!”
Or he’s talking
about the groups that are ready to join them for the revolution and suddenly he
starts to cry and everyone is very worried and ask him if he’s okay or if he
wants to rest and continue tomorrow, but he wipes away his tears and says:
“No, I’m fine, it’s just that… Have you read the poem Jean Prouvaire wrote
last night? It was so beautiful! A gorgeous work of art!”
