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.

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.

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.

Alternate Universe

Enjolras should have realized that the kids would try to figure it out. Turns out high school students have nothing better to do than investigate their teachers love lives.

It started with a few lovesick students who thought that they might have a chance with the scarily-hot political science teacher before their friends crushed their dreams by pointing out that Enjolras was both out of their league and probably taken.

From then on, it became his students’ mission to find out if Enjolras was dating anyone. It hadn’t taken Enjolras long to realize that his students were weird, but this was reaching a whole new level.

Someone overheard (eavesdropped on) Enjolras talking on the phone before school and heard him sign off with “I love you,” which was damning enough to launch an investigation into WHO it was that Enjolras loved.

Mr. Combeferre frowned and shook his head when the kids questioned him. “I’m not going to spill my friend’s secrets. Now run along,” he had said, but one of the kids noticed the edge of a smile on his lips.

Mr. Courfeyrac just laughed when he was asked. “You know who you should ask about this? R. You should ask Grantaire about this.”

Most of the other teachers seemed to agree. There was nothing left to do but go to Enjolras’s sworn enemy.

The art teacher nearly fell out of his chair when his students asked him who Enjolras was dating. “That’s a fantastic question. Who could that ice-cold, pretentious asshole possibly date?”

“Probably someone as beautiful and emotionally cut-off as he is,” one of the kids said wistfully.

“Mmhmm”

“She probably killed her pet goat when she was seven for sustenance and didn’t shed a tear.”

“That’s honestly the only logical possibility,” Grantaire agreed.

The rest of Grantaire’s class for the day turned into character design of Enjolras’s alleged lover. After that, most of the kids resigned themselves to never solving the mystery.

After school, Grantaire went to Enjolras’s classroom. “Were you aware that your wife killed her family pet as a child so that she wouldn’t starve to death?”

“Oh really?” Enjolras said. “I was told that she was a Russian spy.”

Grantaire wrapped his arms around Enjolras’s waist. “Maybe she’s both,” he murmured, pressing a kiss to Enjolras’s lips.

They didn’t notice the student standing at the door. The school went wild.

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!
