BLIND GRANTAIRE HC

LETS ALL TAKE A SECOND TO CONSIDER ONE THING: BLIND R

Contributions scorpdaddy

I just want a blind R AU where he falls in love with the power in Enjolras’ voice and is just so entranced AND LITERALLY NO ONE KNOWS HES BLIND UNTIL HE TRIPS OVER A TABLE THEY MOVED FOR A MEETING AND COURF IS JUST

“oh shit sorry we though you would have seen that”

And R is just “considering I literally can’t see shit, that’s probably a bad assumption”

Think of the humor:

“R, HAVE YOU SEEN THE NEW-”

“NO ENJOLRAS I HAVENT SEEN ANYTHING RECENTLY”

BUT ARGUMENTS THO:
“GOD R YOURE SO BLIND TO THE WORL-”

“Actually that’s 100% accurate considering that I am, in fact, blind”

“OHMYGOD R I’m so sorry I didn’t mean-”

*Courf crying of laughter*

AND LETS TALK MORE ARGUMENTS:
sometimes Enjolras forgets that he’s privileged and R gets so frustrated because he can’t see
And R just goes off on Enjolras like
“I GET IT ENJOLRAS. I get that im a fucking dumbass okay? I can’t fucking see . I can’t tell when youre agitated when you don’t talk to me because I CANT FUCKING SEE okay? Sometimes I say shit that apparently isn’t okay to say because I can’t fucking see your reactions . I don’t know. Stop treating me like I’m this terrible human being. Do you realize how much people communicate through body language and facial expressions? It’s a lot. And I can’t see any of it. Next time you want to judge me, you should check out your own privileged ass.”
And he storms out of the room

•R WITH A CELLPHONE
BEFORE THEY KNEW HE WAS BLIND THEYED SEND MESSAGES TO HIM

COURF JUST “hey R did you get my text?”

“… No???”

•but of course eventually he invests in having one of those phones that reads his texts off to him And he has it on at all times and the amis get so annoyed until they realize he cant fucking see

•Courf sends him the entirety of uptown funk when he finds out

•R getting a sext in a meeting

•ENJOLRAS LEARNS BRAIL FOR R AND THEY COMMUNICATE SOMETIMES BY TAPPING ON SURFACES

•LIL MORSE CODE ARGUMENTS

•R can see strangely well without actually seeing like he’s just so GODDAMN AWARE OF EVERYTHING

•R letting his guard down with Eponine and just letting her lead him places because he’s tired of always having to think about where he is

•ENJOLRAS WHO ONLY GETS ASKED OUT BECAUSE HES HOT
LIKE THE ONLY REASON PEOPLE BEYOND THE AMIS TALK TO HIM IS BECAUSE HES ATTRACTIVE
PEOPLE CONSTANTLY USING HIM FOR HIS LOOKS
and then comes this boy who can’t see
And loves him for his voice and ideals

•Grantaire who gets the opportunity to just touch his face once they’ve gotten close and he’s just “oh my god you literally feel like a statue- OHMYGOD YOUR CHEEK BONES”
Enjolras just laughs

•Sometimes R needs reassurance that Enjolras is real
And they’ll lay down on the couch all snuggled together and R will just stroke his face
Feel the gradient of his profile
Enjolras feels so loved and at peace

•courf describing Enjolras for R

•R literally screaming on the inside

More to be added later

Smol 5'1 Enjolras telling all his friends the reason he doesn’t date is because his standards are too high and when questioned by Courf what that means Enjolras just stares at him in the eye dead serious
“He has to be 6'4 so I can climb on his shoulders and finally be tall like I’ve always dreamed”

Courf cries

A few months later a super tall R walks in to a meeting for the first time because Ferre dragged him
Enjolras is already flustered because DANG THAT BOY HAS PRETTY EYES
Courf notices and strides over to the new kid and The first thing Courf asks (and very loudly so Enjolras can hear in his little corner) is how tall he is

R just blushes because well he’s obviously taller than Ferre by a couple inches and R is a little self conscious about his height and mumbles out a shy “6'5”

Enjolras nearly dies

No but Percy Jackson AU where Enjolras is a son of Aphrodite. Think about it – unnaturally good looks, the power to convince people bordering on charmspeak. Only Mom’s not too happy with her son’s lack of interest in, well, anyone. So she starts throwing anyone she can his way. A hot and smart son of Athena named Combeferre – too bad that one starts dating a son of Poseidon, Courfeyrac. A hard-working and dedicated son of Hephaestus named Feuilly – but Feuilly’s not really into guys (though Enjolras does develop the sweetest crush, and Aphrodite keeps coming around to coo at him). A brawling son of Ares named Bahorel – doesn’t quite catch Enjolras’s eye for romance, but he instantly wants him on his capture the flag team. Joly, a son of Apollo and camp medic, or Bossuet, a son of Demeter and upholder of the sacred law, or Prouvaire, a son of Dionysus who seems a little too fascinated with the maenads and their blood offerings. None of them turn Enjolras’s head, and he claims he’s too busy for love, because he’s got a revolution to plan (he wants to get rid of the Mist, to inform the mortals of what’s happening in their world, and to stop the meddling of the gods in mortal affairs. Needless to say, he’s not the most popular on Olympus).

Finally she gives up, and when Aphrodite gives up on love, it’s not pretty. Every monster within a hundred miles comes for Enjolras, and he’s forced to fight and kill them. And one time when he does, he happens to save a certain mortal who’s able to see through the Mist. A mortal with dark curls and wide green eyes and who claims glibly to worship Dionysus and who goes by the name of Grantaire.

And just like that, her boy falls in love. And maybe it’s not what Aphrodite expected, maybe it’s not two star-crossed demigods, but it’s got the promise of great tragedy as well as great romance, so Aphrodite just settles in to watch it all unfold (and unfold it does, and she would never have believed her son’s potential for love if she wasn’t the goddess of love herself, and she weeps when they find themselves facing down against the gods directly, her son holding hands with that same mortal).

all I want- all I want is an e/r au where they’re both famous and everybody and their mother are all over the rumors on the subject of whether or not they’re in a relationship 

“So of course you’re aware of all the speculation on whether or not you’re dating Grantaire. Any chance the rumors are true?”

Enjolras can see the strain around her eyes; she’s hoping he’ll laugh it off. He has no idea why they had a conservative talk show host ask him this question, but oh, are they going to regret inviting him on.

“Oh no,” Enjolras waved the question away. “The rumors are completely baseless.”

He waits until he can see how she relaxes at the answer; waits until she opens her mouth to let out a relieved chuckle and undoubtedly some insipid joke.

“He’s actually my husband.”

just imagine enjolras, after he realises he has feelings for grantaire, trying to flirt

because grantaire is aware of enjolras constantly - where he is, what he’s doing - but unaware of the possibility enjolras might actually want to talk to him, in a friendly manner, when he isn’t drunk and being cocky and irritating 

so every time enjolras, who, bless his poor nerd heart, is awkward as fuck anyway, sidles up and starts talking, grantaire will entirely miss the point

‘have you been to the new coffee shop that’s just opened in town’

‘yeah I went like last week, it’s good, you should go with the guys’

or

‘what are you drawing, that looks really-’

‘oh sorry, i’ll move my stuff out of your way’

or

‘where’s your shirt from? i like it’

‘what? is there something on my shirt?’
