ahh ok so i had drinks with stuffimgoingtohellfor and bewaretheides315, representatives of the star trek fandom, and they schooled me in the intricacies of pon farr and it was awesome and then i totally forgot to write more of that fic mea culpa
ok actually i have like 300 more words i just found in docs but you aren’t going to be happy it’s even more of a tease than before
The men, their men, clear out. Grantaire goes to Enjolras’ bedside. Hovers above the bonds.
“What do you need from me?” It’s no-nonsense, as though nothing else has happened. Only this: what do you need?
idk dude! it felt good to have enjolras be jealous, for once, and not get what he wants. i never torture enjolras enough. shall we torture him some more?
i’ve been looking back on more than year in les mis because my birthday is this friday and i’m nostalgic, and i have written 20+ stories and tons of drabbles from enjolras’ perspective, which is kind of mind-blowing to me. i’ve never stuck so consistently with any character before. the funny thing is that most of the time i disagree with him.
maybe i’m still so fascinated because i’m so not an enjolras, and i can’t know what he’s going to do next. i love trying to figure him out to the point where he’ll do the things i want him to do, and i love having him look at grantaire.
the grantaire side of the equation is simpler. i understand grantaire’s cynicism and dependencies and desires, and identify with his (lack of) motivation. for me, it’s easy to feel grantaire’s emotions where enjolras is concerned. but with every story it’s a new challenge to convince enjolras why grantaire deserves him. i enjoy when it gets to be the other way around, and enjolras is the one left wondering.
Belated B’day present to Pilf, who has become my muse for all things Enjolras’ hair. I mean, she’s so much more than just that, but I thought I’d give her Aaron!jolras with longer, slightly luminescent hair in honour of this :)
I’m so so sorry it’s late love! Blame my strangely active social life.
how about that idea (thank you)
yahh friend apparently i am taking prompts and this one went way over 30 mins (thank you)

kk my sweets i’m gonna go see some lovely people in brooklyn about dinner and then will hopefully be back in time to finish editing and post some words for y’all
thank you for existing and i hope your friday is magic
hello back friend thank you so much for this and i am so so so glad your nyc experience was good! eeee i am insanely happy that you went to the morgan library it is one of my life goals to route as many people there as possible and omgomg you sAW les mis yes ”revolutionary fervor” is the best description for kyle scatliffe’s enjolras and also “burns with the fire of a thousand brilliant suns” and javert i still can’t talk about javert
dudes i may have written some wacky valjean/javert and also enjolras/grantaire porn that i may or may not be trying to proofread on the sly at work
i mostly blame will swenson and his face
