enjolras blushes. a lot. grantaire thinks it's the cutest thing, which makes enj blush more. this has been a psa

lmAo truuuu???

Enjolras is a soft and blushy boy and this is an undisputed fact. However, he doesn’t usually show this side of him. Most Amis have only seen it when he’s either very tired or very drunk. So when Enjolras is stone cold sober and it’s the middle of the day, Grantaire is quite concerned at the violent shade of red Enj is turning after he jokingly calls him a “pretty boy”, so he asks if he’s feeling alright and offers to get a cold washcloth.

The furious blushing continues on multiple occasions, but poor oblivious R just chalks it up to coincidences. Enjolras is scarlet as Grantaire walks out of the shower with only a towel on? Must be the steam leaving the bathroom. Their fingers brush while passing the popcorn during movie night? Grantaire is sure it isn’t a blush, the lighting is weird and he’s probably seeing things.

Eventually, it happens often enough that Grantaire has no idea what to make of it. But he’s checked, and Enjolras doesn’t seem to blush around anyone else. Bahorel has planted several drunken sloppy kisses right on Enjolras’s lips before and he never even flinches. Still, it isn’t until Enj straight up giggles at a bad joke that Grantaire made that he realizes something is up.

R decides that he has two choices: Confront Enjolras and ask what’s going on, or push it down until the curiosity eats at him. In a miraculous moment of self preservation, Grantaire goes with the former.

After a meeting, Grantaire asks Enjolras if he can have a word and pulls him aside. He asks why it seems that Enj only blushes around him, and quite a lot to be honest, and if it’s because of something he did. Enjolras kinda freezes because if R noticed the blushing then he probably put it together and figured out that Enj has a suuuuper huge and embarrassing crush on him(that was not the case as Grantaire is Unobservant As Hell and also quite self deprecating).

And Enjolras, usually so eloquent, mumbles something along the lines of “yousortofmakemereallynervousbutinagoodwayyouknowlikeyoukindofmakemefeellikeihavetovomit? nonononotlikethatimeanliketherearebutterfliesinmystomachanywayireallylikeyoubutidontwanttomakeyouuncomfortablesoimjustgonnago—”

He’s cut off by Grantaire kissing him and whispering that he’s cute when he blushes which of COURSE only makes him blush harder and these two dorks live happily ever after the end.

I think the voltron fandom as a whole loves langst so much because Lance is that character that SO MANY PEOPLE can relate to.

He’s that character that is constantly compared to someone better than them.

He’s that character that hides their myriad of insecurities behind humour and a false smile, retreating from others when it gets too much.

He’s that ‘fake it til you make it’ character that validates our struggles with self-confidence and self-worth.

And this isn’t even going into his complexity as a character and diverse representation that he adds to the show.

For Fic Rec Days. This is from “what must be said and not written” by @kiyala and it’s SO funny! Go read read it! I think they write the perfect Grantaire and I love how salty Combeferre is in this one.

I apologize in advance for any typos. I know they must be there.

i just got back from seeing the brazilian production of les mis and here are some of my thoughts on the brazilian enjoltaire:

- grantaire is really sad??? maybe the saddest grantaire i’ve seen?? i don’t really know how to explain it but even in his line in red & black he was more like a sad drunk than a playful drunk.. i thought that was a really interesting portrayal of R
- instead of teasing enj, grantaire was kind of abrupt to him for most of the show and it almost felt like R didn’t trust himself around enjolras
- R quietly nodded along enj’s words quite a few times
- enjolras doesn’t really acknowledge grantaire till the barricade when he hands R the gun
- after eponine’s death, grantaire literally doesn’t take his eyes off enjolras
- in drink with me, when grantaire starts singing his part, enjolras breaks into the most beautiful shiny grin????
- but as soon as enj realizes what grantaire is singing/talking about, his smile disappears
- also during his lines in drink with me, R is throwing stuff around angrily and no one is really being able to stop him
- enj runs up to grantaire and everyone backs off
- grantaire stops and, for the first time during the show, allows himself to get really near enjolras and they hold the most intense and longest eye contact???/)/
- my favorite part about this was that you could really see how much enj cares about grantaire

ok so this is what i gathered from watching les mis brasil tonight. can’t really confirm if this was what the actors were going for… im so far up enjoltaire’s ass i may have read way too much into their actions. buT ANYWAY both the actors who played enjolras and grantaire were AMAZING and they deserve all the love!!!

Enjolras: Honey, where is my red blazer?

Grantaire: What?

Enjolras: Where is my red blazer!?!?

Grantaire: I -uh- put it away.

Enjolras: Where?!?

Grantaire: Why do you need to know?

Enjolras: I need it!

Grantaire: Uh-uh, don’t think about runnin off doing no derrin’ do. We’ve been planning this dinner for two months!!

Enjolras: THE PUBLIC IS IN DANGER!

Grantaire: MY EVENING IS IN DANGER!

Enjolras: TELL ME WHERE MY RED BLAZER IS MAN, WE’RE TALKING ABOUT THE GREATER GOOD!

Grantaire: GREATER GOOD?!? I’M YOUR HUSBAND! I’M THE GREATEST GOOD YOU’RE GONNA GET!

Y de repente, ella cambio. Se volvió una persona completamente diferente, con una nueva mentalidad, una nueva perspectiva, una nueva alma. La chica que una vez se preocupaba demasiado por todo y por todos, ahora ya no le importaba nada en absoluto.

Les Amis as out-of-context quotes that my friend said while watching Les Mis for the first time

Enjolras: “Oh look, they’re hating on the rich people!”

Combeferre: “So they sing about their love… And they haven’t had any conversations besides their song about their love. Doesn’t that stink? Oh, well. What you gonna do? It’s TV.”

Courfeyrac: “They’re all so pretty. Why are they all so pretty?”

Jehan: “Pretty neat things, them stars!

Bahorel: “The kid is like 8, and he’s still singing when he gets shot. That’s commitment!”

Feuilly: “HE THREW DOWN A PIANO! THOSE ARE SO EXPENSIVE!”

Joly: “It looks like a face mask! I, too, love exfoliating with human crap.”

Bossuet: “Ooh, that’s some deep shit. Sorry guys, what can I say, I love some crappy puns!”

Grantaire: “Aw, he’s singing about stars again, except they’re not pretty this time. He’s clearly having some life issues.”

Bonus:

Marius: “You know what I noticed? There’s no comic relief in this.”

Cosette: “I wonder what they made that out of. Pudding, maybe. Just a happy thought.”

Éponine: “Is the part where we’re supposed to feel sympathy for him? Cause I feel NOTHING.”

Montparnasse: “OH SHIT IT’S THECOPS!”

J'ai appris que quand elle me disait de partir je devais rester, que quand elle m'ordonnait de me taire je devais parler d'avantage, que sa colère n'était que l'image de son amour et de son inquiétude, que sa froideur ne reflétait que la peur et la souffrance qu'elle se faisait à l'idée de me perdre. J'ai compris que cette femme était un paradoxe fait de chaire, de sang et d'amour pour un imbécile qui n'a pris conscience de sa valeur que quand elle est partie.
