I care for nothing else, redbeard wasn’t really the dog it was a person who died, and the thing with the dog and the sibling were the same thing, the 2 big things that happened to sherlo was really 1 thing, the dog and the other one were really the same incident
I really loved TFP? Like it was amazing? The character development? The plot twists? Victor freaking Trevor? I dont think I really understand why people dont like it? I mean im sad johnlock didnt happen? But like as hard core TJLC conspirator i am, i didnt expect it to? I just? Dont? Get? It?
Are Jeanne and Enjolras pals up in heaven or love rivals?
I don’t think either of them would be petty enough to be rivals. Also I (personally) think the love Grantaire had for them was very different; he certainly thought of them both as saviours but Jeanne was literally chosen-by-god, real life saint, betrayed and martyred– also when he met her he (and most of Europe) was quite seriously Christian, she was like a affirmation of his faith sent by God himself, like there was something truly spiritual there and seeing as they met when she was 14 I wonder if his love was more like genuine worship.

Now Enjolras. There are obvious parallels between him and Jeanne (in PB at least), young, determined, doomed. He was a martyr but he also failed. The revolution came later and not because of him. He also met Paris at a much darker part of his life, when he had nearly stripped himself of all the trappings of Cityhood. He met Grantaire.
And while there was a undertow of worship for Enjolras, of desperate need for a god or saint to save him (the flowers blooming at Delphi) Enjolras rejected that. He didn’t want to be a god, he certainly wasn’t a saint (I don’t even know how religious he was. Need to read Les Mis again) he wanted to be a man, wanted Grantaire to see him as a man. And he saw Grantaire as one too, as a person. Not at first, he messes up rather badly at first but the thing about Enjolras is that he wants to be right and good and corrects himself rather harshly if a flaw is found. Grantaire was not an ‘it’, Grantaire was more than Paris. He saw Grantaire as more than Paris, despite what Grantaire feared even until the end. He met the god Grantaire was with all that implied and didn’t reject it, he slowly coaxed Grantaire back into the light knowing that his darkness and depression wasn’t something he could save him from. Apollo’s a miracle, magic-healer. Enjolras was a man. And he loved him. Their love was…human. It was a relationship, flawed, a bit difficult, funny sometimes and with a physical, sexy and affectionate side. Not a Saint and City. They were at their best when they saw each other as what they really were: two men in love.
So, back to the question. Not rivals, maybe not friends? Despite their superficial similarities they really don’t have much in common. Their lives were wildly different in age, sex, centuries, language, enemies, scope, warfare, death. Even their causes were different: for France, yes. But Jeanne’s mission was putting a French King on the throne while Enjolras’ was trying to lob him off again. Enjolras would be very respectful, Jeanne pleased with how he looked after Paris (’Grantaire,’ Enjolras corrected. ‘Who?’ Jeanne looked confused.) of course there’s something to be said for it being a kingdom of heaven, with a hierarchy of bourgeoisie angels and saints so maybe Enjolras is discreetly trying to build a barricade at the pearly gates to the general bemusement of everyone
