Courfeyrac had the biggest crush on Combeferre in their anthropology class wherein Ferre was the TA. Honestly he hadn’t even talked to him before really, just stared at him during class a lot when he wasn’t looking and basically melted every time he said anything. The closest that they got to interacting was when Courf said sly comments or jokes too loudly in the middle of class, and he’d look over to see Combeferre cracking a smile.
Courf never really needed to go to the review sessions before each exam either, but he’d be damned if he didn’t show up anyway because Ferre was the one that led them. And really, just listening to him explain the concepts with such confidence and smoothness shouldn’t have been as attractive as it was.
He didn’t think Ferre even knew his name.
So when Combeferre saw him studying at the library one day and placed his belongings in the chair across from him with a smile and a “Courfeyrac, right?” Courf just about choked.
