That Joly and Courf as twins post was so cute and i loved it!! bUT i have the habit of my mind always turning everything Courferre. So, imagine Courf coming to Joly one day like "I just met the hottest, nicest guy ever and I need you to teach me all about space like right now!"
Oh my goodness.
Courfeyrac is like “I know nothing about science excep that the mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cell, and that guy is so cute and clever and he loves SCIENCE, I don’t know what to do!”
So Joly sits him down and does his best to teach him a bit of everything, even though Courf’s brain hurts.
So Courfeyrac starts talking up Combeferre, reciting fact after fact everything he’s learnt, thinking his crush is going to think he’s SO smart and SO interesting, but it doesn’t seem to work. Combeferre already knows everything Courf is talking about. Courf lies down on his bed, defeated, and Joly sits next to him.
“You know.. Why don’t you try being yourself? There’s a lot you don’t know apart from science. Maybe Combeferre wants to know the real you, not the “fun science fact” you, you know?”
It works. Courfeyrac ends up admiting to Combeferre that he wanted to impress him, but that he truly wants to get to know him. In the end, Combeferre is the one teaching Courfeyrac about science, while Courf listens to his boyfriend with a smitten expression. And Courfeyrac tells him all about social sciences, which, after all, is science
