inexpressible gentleness

12. things you said when you thought i was asleep, for Enjolras/Grantaire! :D

It’s late evening. Jehan is making something in the kitchen that seems to require a lot of clattering of pans, and Grantaire is dozing off on the couch with the light of the television flickering over his face and the sound of Courfeyrac’s laughter floating through from the hallway. He’s half sprawled over Enjolras’s lap, his cheek pressed against Enjolras’s thighs in a way that’s definitely going to leave fabric marks later, and. Enjolras is carding his fingers through Grantaire’s hair.

Canon Grantaire:

  • “Grantaire’s self-conceit was not disconcerted. He looked tenderly and fixedly upon every woman, appearing to say of them all: if only I would; and trying to make his comrades believe he was in general demand.”
  • “His soft, wavering, disjointed, diseased, deformed ideas, attached themselves to Enjolras as to a backbone. His moral spine leaned upon that firmness.”
  • “…looked at Enjolras with an inexpressible gentleness…”
