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?”
•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
Enjolras just has a “;)” as his soulmate tattoo
He’s always wondered how someone can literally say an emoji but then Grantaire comes in to a meeting one day like
“Semicolon Right-parenthesis @ you blond dude”
I watched Les Mis in the Queen’s Theatre and I’m still crying.
When they sang “here’s to pretty girls who went to our heads”, Grantaire snorted and looked at Enjolras.
Enjolras touches Grantaire more than any other character (mostly trying to derail him, but still).
This Grantaire stood his ground repeatedly, it was lovely. Like, dirty looks when Enjolras is winding up Gavroche. Not letting him get to Marius when he needed a moment. Constantly trying to lighten the mood. Arguing with Bahorel to the point Enjolras has to mediate (which mostly consists on the derailing mentioned above but I’m not complaining).
Before Enjolras climbed the barricade for the last time, they held hands and as they were letting go, Grantaire kissed Enjolras wrist, desperately.
They don’t hold hands as they die though. Grantaire sees Enjolras fall. I can’t get over that. Not getting over that. Ever.
