I'm new to the les mis fandom and I just had a question; why so so many people headcanon Jehan/Jean as non-binary? No shade at all, i'm 100% behind this. (Representation is fab), I just wondered where it started or if there was something in canon that pointed to it?
New to the fandom anon here, ask part 2 haha: i also haven’t read it yet but I just got it so I will soon. And i expect jehan to be nonbinary and grantaire to be bisexual af and so much else headcanoned i’ve seen, i can’t say i’m not the teeniest bit worried i’ll be disappointed by the book. I mean obvs it’s not all that opently lgbt+ ‘cus of when it was written blah blah but like still. Idk i’m ranting haha. But do u see what i’m getting at?
First of all, welcome ❤
I honestly don’t know how or when the non-binary Jehan thing started? I forgot about the fandom for like three years and when I got back there it was and I just rolled with it :’) Does anyone know?
I would warn you not to expect the book to be nearly as gay as we make it seem! There’s a lot of nuance and stuff that smarter people than me are better at talking about ( @pilferingapples, @just-french-me-up). But I don’t think you’ll be disappointed, it’s such a good reading! Keep you mind open, be patient with Hugo’s sidetracks, and don’t expect the gay to be openly gay I guess :B
