And now the night is near;
Now I can make believe he’s here.

what if Enjolras and Grantaire went to the movies for their second date and Enjolras did the yawn & stretch move so that he could put his arm over Grantaire’s shoulders
he would miss and accidentally bump Grantaire in the head
first of all we need some light
"Before I started on the West End, I actually did a duet ironically of “On My Own” with Frances Ruffelle who is the original Éponine. That was the first crazy experience of me going “What? That’s who I grew up listening to! Frances Ruffelle!” And then I did the Les Misérables 25th Anniversary Concert with Lea Salonga. She played Fantine in it, but she’s another very famous Éponine. She played her at the 10th Anniversary. So it’s kind of like a family of Éponines and what’s been lovely is that I’ve just been met with constant support. I remember when I got the role in the film and it was announced and Lea was announcing all over the internet how proud she was. I think having that support from the classic famous Éponines just makes you so proud to be a part of this character, this iconic theatrical role. Having that support is just incredible. It takes off the pressure. You’re flying the flag for Éponine the heart-broken heroine, you know?” Samantha Barks

happy holidays from the tiny revolutionaries!
Let me tell you about book!Enjolras. When one of the revolutionaries got drunk and shot an unarmed citizen, Enjolras grabbed the man by his hair, forced him to his knees, and gave him one minute to say his prayers. He stood calmly timing him on his watch as the man screamed and begged at his feet, then put a pistol to his head and shot him. Then “he thrust the body aside with his foot and said, ‘Get rid of that.’” Enjolras had no problem giving Gavroche a gun. Enjolras stayed at the back of the barricade because he knew that he had to stay alive to give orders. Enjolras killed the young National Guard who was loading the cannon even though it pained him to do so— he shed a single tear, called him “brother” and shot him to buy a few precious minutes. Enjolras instructed the revolutionaries to keep a stack of several paving stones on the first floor of the cafe, and when the National Guard attacked, they threw them on the soldiers below and crushed them. Enjolras found several bottles of wine in the back of the cafe; he placed them on the first floor, too, so that when they inevitably ran out of bullets they could use the bottles as clubs. When he was finally pinned down, surrounded by the bodies of his friends and and facing twenty members of the National Guard, Enjolras threw away his gun, offered them his chest, and said, “shoot me.” He refused a blindfold.
Enjolras is vicious. Enjolras is angry. And above all, Enjolras is an idealist; and there is absolutely nothing more dangerous.
This is why I love Enjolras. Because he was always aware of the death that he was bringing. but he thought that the small chance of reaching that new world, that small potential hope, was worth it.
It is both terrifying, and beautiful.
