les amis abc

hello yes have i mentioned that i love Marius

Enjolras moved first, until his arm was brushing against Grantaire’s shoulder. When he turned his head, his eyes were pensive, and warm, and Grantaire’s heart skipped a beat. He stood still when Enjolras’s lips pressed down against his forehead, but his hands were shaking.

“What’s that for?” He managed to ask.

“I don’t know,” said Enjolras, kissing his brow. “I think I just appreciate finally seeing you.”

I’ve been here for years, Grantaire didn’t say, because deep down he understood what Enjolras meant. In a way, he felt the same, rediscovering all over again everything he’d thought he knew by heart about Enjolras all this time. His belief for the world; his fight for his country; his love for his friends; his quiet moments, and his brightest; his laughs; his speeches; his touches.

The kisses, however, were brand new. Enjolras’s lips were on his cheekbone, now, and their noses bumped gently against each other. Grantaire let out a shaky breath. His fingers went to rest upon Enjolras’s chest.

“Enjolras -” he whispered, overwhelmed.

Enjolras froze, but didn’t move away. He raised a hand, slowly, until it was resting upon Grantaire’s neck, his thumb caressing Grantaire’s jaw ever so slightly. Grantaire’s eyes fluttered.

“Yes?” Enjolras asked.

“Yes.” Said Grantaire. “Yes, yes, yes -”

Enjolras’s mouth was on his in a moment, stopping him from making a fool of himself. His lips were soft, but the kiss held no hesitation at all, and Grantaire, as always, felt his whole being swallowed by the firmness of Eniolras’s decision, his skin burning, his mind illuminated, his chest expanding, more and more and more -

“Enjolras,” he said again, but this time there was nothing but naked love in his voice, and Enjolras’s answering smile before he moved to kiss him again was the best answer he could have hoped for.

After cosette introduced her dad to them; les amis de l'abc accepted jean valjean as their dad weirdly fast and as did valjean like over the course of a week Jean Valjean had unexpectedly adopted 11 college students and 1 ten year old and they all look up to him as a fatherly figure and randomly call him for advice and he is pretty sure that over half of them have him as their emergency contact now. Sometimes the call him and give him life updates like enjolras excitedly calling him one night: “GRANTAIRE ASKED ME OUT TO GET COFFEE TOMORROW!!! Wait what am i supposed to do?” Then proceeded to slightly panic while valjean gave him dating advice and told him to be himself (yesterday grantaire had called him for advice on how to ask out enjolras) and every time they tell him about one of their latest achievements in life he gets this swell of pride in his heart.

He goes to gavroches soccer/football games, grantaires art shows, courfeyracs plays or musicals, every protest he can go to, and every big event that matters to them because even though they arent actually his kids they practically are at this point

The Les Amis take a trip to vegas and the next morning they find out:

  • Grantaire and Enjolras ended up getting drunkenly married at midnight, after saying I do Enjolras went on a 30 minute rant about how marriage is an outdated constitution
  • Grantaires just like “Tru but you still said i do”
  • Bossuet won the 2 thousand dollar jack pot on the slot machines then lost it all and more in a game of craps
  • Combeferre got hypnotised by a magician and is very jumpy around anybody snapping their fingers
  • Eponine, Jehan, and Courfeyrac somehow ended up in an underground mob game of texas holdem in the casinos basement. They didn’t win any money but made a lot of strange new friends with complicated handshakes
  • Marius tried to get drunkenly married to Cosette but was denied at the reception desk when they realised the two were already married
  • He spent the next hour crying at the bar to anybody who would listen how unfair it was he couldn’t get double married
  • Bahorel got kicked out of the casino half an hour after getting there. He won’t tell anybody why. They group strongly suspect it had something to do with the lively debate he got into with the security guard over juice cleanses
  • Feuilly was determined to watch every show and performance put on by the casino, he was the only witness to Ferre’s hypnosis induced chicken dance
  • Joly spent the night locked in the hotel room with Musichetta getting drunk off the mini bar because he saw a bartender cut the limes without washing his hands first and was convinced he’d contract some form of E. Coli. “YOU DON’T KNOW WHERE HIS HANDS HAVE BEEN CHETTA! HE COULD HAVE JUST POOPED!”

I posted the cockades I’d sewn a while back, and promised I’d make a tutorial.

And the I procrastinated for about five months.

But never fear, because I’ve finally done it.  You’ll find a step-by-step guide to sewing ribbon cockades under the cut.

“How much bored are you, Elodie” “why, bored enough to write about all the rarepairs of les miserables, including most I don’t ship at all, in three sentences or less (or more), starting right now, apparently”

PART I (N°12 to 17)

N°12 - Enjolras/Éponine

“it’s not that I don’t like him,” said Éponine, glancing vaguely at Enjolras, who was reading in a corner and ignoring them completely. “It’s just that I don’t trust pretty boys like that. Barely looks human, your friend.”

“Well,” started Courfeyrac, ready to concede the fact, and then stopped and frowned. “Wait. Does that mean you don’t think Marius and I are pretty?”

Éponine stared at him, and then decided that since she was to be a proper lady now, she ought to delicately stay silent on the matter, while Cosette hided a laugh in her embroidery. 

N°13 - Enjolras/Combeferre 

“I brought you some soup, orders from Joly,” said Enjolras, a gentle but firm hand on Combeferre’s shoulder to stop him from trying to get up again. 

Combeferre, surprised, forgot to struggle, squinting at him instead: “Did you make it?” 

“No,” Enjolras snorted. “Madame Fran, your neighbor, offered to make some for you. She also said I should tell you she’s very happy you found a nice man like me, and she won’t report anything to the police, you can trust her, ‘cause her Raymond is just like us, and she’s not one to judge.”

“Ah,” said Combeferre, cheeks darkening slightly. “How nice of her?”
