what she means:
I understand that Kaneki is not free of flaws and has made many questionable decisions throughout the course of the series. But we can't deny the fact that he's just a guy whose life has been utter shit even prior to becoming a half-ghoul. No one deserves to have their life spiral out of control like that just for wanting a quiet book date. All I want is for him to find peace, and because it feels like the entire tokyo ghoul universe is actively depriving him of that, the easiest way I can vocalize this feeling is through using an overused expression.
I swear this is the same fish, I know it’s absurd, but it’s true. This is Tilikum, my Giant HMPK betta and all-time favorite fish. The first photo is shortly after I got him, and the second is today, three years later. I’ve kept a lot of bettas, and just about every variation, but I think I’ll be staying with Giant HMPKs from here on out… He’s just too flawless
So the thing was this: saying Enjolras is sort of good-looking is the same thing as saying he’s sort of amazing, which is patently wrong. Correct answer: Enjolras is beautiful. That’s the best way to describe him. “Attractive” is too vague, “gorgeous” is too corny, and “cool” is a gigantic lie because Enjolras is a nerd. An intensely passionate, terrifyingly brilliant nerd. But still a nerd.
Bottomline and absolute truth: Enjolras is beautiful. And he was Grantaire’s boyfriend. And when Grantaire tentatively asked him to be his model for a couple (a lot) of his pieces, Enjolras said yes. So like, Grantaire shouldn’t be blamed at all for drawing him. Or painting him. Or sculpting him.
He dares anyone with half an ability to produce any kind of art to not be inspired when they look at Enjolras’ face. Or hands. Or thighs. Or everything.
Grantaire always knew that Enjolras would bleed into other aspects of his life, and for the most part it was expected, because they’ve known each other for a long time. Their lives were already intertwined way before they got together.
He just never thought that its effects would be something like this.
