Hi! One of my friends found out she's lactose intolerant and she's kinda bummed about it so I was wondering if you could come up with any headcanons on Enjolras being lactose intolerant I could show her to cheer her up? Thanks :)
Okay so welcome to the French culture corner and let me introduce:
You’ve heard of the fondue, now get ready for another cheese fest that basically raises melted cheese to the rank of deity. It’s the ultimate winter French (and Swiss) dish, no matter what the fondue purists may say. It’s basically: cheese, cheese, cheese, ham if you want to include it, cheese, various pork products, potatoes, pickles, cheese, and green salad, but you’ll need +50 in confidence to bring a salad to a raclette event, because people will most likely glare at you.
So les Amis won’t deter from the raclette tradition, especially when the temperature drops. Vegetarians Jehan and Joly basically load on cheese for the occasion because 1) cheese and 2) it’s hard to find a traditional French dish that hasn’t been compromised by meat somehow. So cheese orgy it is.
So that’s all well and good except for Enjolras who can’t indulge, because he’s lactose intolerant. He’s the only one who cant bring a salad and won’t be glared at.
Grantaire once brought vegan raclette cheese, because he wants his boyfriend to enjoy himself and “Eating salad during raclette night is just sad, mon ange.”
Grantaire: “Is your lactose intolerance going to act up if I do something cheesy?”
