i hc today (oct 17th) as joly’s bday but since it’s a hc nobody else knows so im just sadly celebrating alone
(joly bday anon, i forgot this part of the ask whoops) when do you think everyones bday is (sorry if youve answered this before ahh)
Hii!!! I did not answer this kind of question before!! and I love this kind of questions because it makes me over-analize characters and I love doing that :D
Joly: I think Joly’s a really good Oct 17th, but what about May 14th? I hc him as a sweet sweet guy with a strong sense of romanticism and who’s cheerful and happy and all those things are things I see in May more than in October
Enjolras: is a second half of August guy. Fiery, Hot and with a sanguine temper. He has to be born during the Lion-est month. Ironically also the month that got called after an Emperor. as for the day… 20th?
Grantaire: is a 6th of September. Why? September is the month in which summer has ended but it’s not autumn yet so you have all this Fun Nostalgia and no outlet for it.
Combeferre: is also a September kid. He was born on September 1st and as a kid he always laughed at the fact that he was born just in time to go to school. Years later R told him that he, too, was a “New Year’s Eve’s Inconvenience” and had an epiphany
Courfeyrac: was born in April 28. because that’s the time the sun starts to really get hotter and people stop wearing big ass sweaters and everything turns nice and bright.
Feuilly: doesnt’ really know when he was born, he was a foster kid, but the people from the place he was found the first time told him he was probably born in January. les amis celebrate his birthday on the 2nd of January.
Bossuet: of all people he was born February 29th. When he was a kid he thought he would have aged slower than the other kids, but growing up he realized it wasn’t that way… he’s now 28, but tells people he’s 7.
Bahorel: was born in December 4th. He was always the biggest kid in the class so no one really noticed he was almost a year younger than the other people until they asked.
Marius: was born July 14th and Enjolras really hates him because of it.
Jehan: was born in November 30th and they’re so so so happy about it. it’s the month of the dead and the month when everything goes into peace and they love it (still kinda salty they weren’t born the 1st of November)
Eponine: was born on June 25th, her parents always told her she and Gavroche were born the same day to save up on presents, but as she was older she found out the truth and held her first actual birthday party.
(Gavroche was born March 29th)
Cosette: is a May child too, she was born the 25th of May and Valjean always takes her to the Rose Garden for her birthday
Montparnasse: was born October 30th. The first thing he and Jehan exchanged was birthdays and they found out they were born at the distance of a month from each other. (parnasse is also salty because his birthday is not on Halloween)
- I’ve never really thought of birthday dates as something important character-wise and I don’t know ANYTHING about horoscopes, I’ll just go with my sixth sense.
- my perception of seasons and months is heavily influenced by italian weather
