Hey can you recommend any good Enjoltaire soulmate fics or ones where one of them is from a different country than the other?
Sure thing bud! (Sorry I didn’t answer this sooner btw)

“Officially, we don’t have a leader, everyone here is equal,” Courfeyrac says, keeping his voice low as Enjolras starts his speech, “but if we did, and we don’t, it would be Enjolras.” He looks over to Marius. “Do not approach him. Let him come to you, let him be the first to initiate conversation, and for the love of God, do not mention soulmates.”
(Or, the soulmate tattoo AU.)
Please Don’t Jump by JosiahPeregrine
Soulmate Tattoo AU where Grantaire has “Please don’t jump” tattooed on his arm and it terrifies him knowing in the future his life is going to take that turn, and he doesn’t know why or when, or even if he will be able to listen to his soulmate when the time comes.
Please Just Talk To Me by they_hear_the_music
If Grantaire had known that The Friends of the ABC were led by a golden god, he would have reconsidered coming to the meeting. Or at least he would have shaved.

He closes his eyes, squeezes them shut tightly, and tries to get his breathing under control, because it can’t be, it can’t fucking be, because you don’t see colours unless you see your soulmate, and Grantaire was pissed drunklast night and he couldn’t have, he mustn’t have—
He opens his eyes.
The colours remain.
(Or, the one where the world is black-and-white until you meet your soulmate.)
First Words by Chainofprospit
Once you were college-aged, with your peers also past the age of maturity, it became standard issue to ask about the tattoos when you were getting to know a group of people. You always went for the oldest first – because they would have had theirs the longest, and might have met their soul mate already, and if so you wanted to hear the stories. (The funnier or more meet-cute the better.) For this reason, Bahorel, as a tall and broad and scruff-bearing fellow whose relatively older age tended to be readily apparent, always got asked before anyone else. He tried to make it quick and nonchalant, so as not to disappoint.
He didn’t have one.
(this one is less exr focused but it’s cool to see how the other Amis find their soulmates)
**also check out this post (x) regarding the concept of exr + predestined soulmates vs. making your own choice**
Different Countries AU
And if I’m gone tomorrow by Madlyie
“These people with their “zis” and “zat” and “‘ow do I get zere”. Run around like they own a country they don’t even like. Why does anyone even go to a country they don’t like?”
Jehan and Feuilly shared an amused look and the taller man rolled his eyes while the poet patted Grantaire’s arm softly.
It was nothing new to hear the artist complaining about all the tourists in the city and especially about the visitors from France.
Grantaire is British and he doesn’t like French people. But then he meets a gorgeous exchange student from France and has to overthink his opinions.
Oh, It’s What You Do To Me by captainskellington
Enjolras stumbles across Grantaire via YouTube comments.
French!R sings. NYC!Enjolras pines.
They fall in love via email and Skype.
4000 miles is pretty far, but they’ve got trains and planes and cars.
(Inspired loosely by Hey There Delilah, as if you couldn’t already tell.)

Grantaire starts the new school year at a new boarding school - this one all the way in France. The problem is, he doesn’t speak French.
(Okay, the other problem is the far too attractive head boy, but that’s another matter that can be dealt with on a different day entirely).
Five times Enjolras couldn’t communicate right + the time he understood absolutely everything by neurodramaticfool
The five times poor traveller Enjolras had to put up with his infuriating receptionist who didn’t speak a word of English.
Plus, the one time he didn’t.
I’m not actually sure if Enjolras and Grantaire are from different countries in this one, but it’s close enough
