Bahorel and Prouvaire for the ship meme?:D (canon era?)



Canon era, huh?  Oh gosh.  I never feel quite smart enough to talk about them in canon era, because I feel like there are so many Romantic things that I don’t know about?  BUT I WILL GIVE IT A GO.  ^_^

  • How do much do I ship it?: Never heard of it/ Notp / Dislike / used to ship / maybe / ship it / aww / otp / IS IT CANON YET?
  • What non sexual activities do they like to do together?

I imagine they see a lot of theatre.  And visit all the best salons in Paris – not necessarily the most fashionable, but the ones with the best wine, the best company, and the crowd most likely to explode into poetry or revolutionary fervor (and depending on the mind-altering substance of the night, that could really go either way).

  • Who does chores around the house?

Bahorel.  Prouvaire has a bit of trouble pulling his head out of the ether and into practical pursuits.  ^_^

  • Who’s the better cook?

…neither.  Fortunately, Bahorel knows all the best places to go in Paris including all the best places to get yourself fed without risking poisoning yourself or burning your rooms down.  (…don’t ask.  Really.  The curtains haven’t smelled the same since.  O_o;;;)

  • Who’s the funniest drunk?

Probably Prouvaire, but not because he’s actually funny.  Prouvaire normally is a bit maudlin and leans heavily towards the Romantic, but Prouvaire drunk is… maudlin about the most innocuous things; things that are decidedly UN-Romantic.  For example, he’ll wax poetic for hours about dandelion fluff and how it resembles a kitten’s tail, and treat the topic with the seriousness devoted to talk of death.  Bahorel finds it adorable and refuses to let anyone tease him for it.

  • Do they have kids?

Well… if we’re in CANON…  TT^TT


Then, YES.  They absolutely have kids.  And grandkids.  And great-grandkids.  They adopt so many orphans and Bahorel, especially, never seems to have fewer than two hanging off him at any given time.  Their home is warm and cozy and filled with light and laughter… and skulls.  And other very bizarre things that it’s really best not to ask Papa Prouvaire about.  Ever.  …because he WILL answer you.  And you probably don’t want to know.  O_o;;;

  • Do they have any traditions?

Prouvaire’s birthday celebration is always held in a graveyard.  He once idly commented that he feels closest to life when among the dead and Bahorel brought him there for a picnic on his birthday one year and the tradition stuck.

  • What do they fight about?

Mostly inconsequential things, like what color curtains to purchase and what to eat for dinner.  When it comes to the big things they tend to be pretty well in sync.  But they both have hot tempers and will explode at a moment’s notice when it’s called for – though Prouvaire has a much longer fuse and it takes longer to set him off.  They both cool off as quickly as they explode, though, so they’ve usually cleared the air within an hour of whatever started the fight to begin with.

  • What would they do if they found their paring tag on tumblr? (If they have one)

Oh gosh.  Assuming such a thing were possible in 19th century France, they would have a BLAST.  They’d make a secret ship blog and contribute SO MANY HEADCANONS AND SO MUCH FIC AND PHOTOSETS AND EVERYTHING THEY COULD.  They’d think it was hilarious.  XD

  • Who cried at the end of Marley and me?

Oh, really.  Like that’s even a question?  Both of them.

  • Who always wins at Mario kart?

Generally speaking, Bahorel, because Prouvaire just isn’t that competitive normally? But every now and then, Prouvaire gets this light in his eye and it is ON.  And when that happens?  Pfft.  Bahorel doesn’t stand a chance!  ;D

  • One thing I like about this ship?

I like how on the surface they’re polar opposites, but at the core they have so much in common.  I love how those opposites make them such a good and supportive pairing.  I think they’d take very good care of each other and deal really well with each other’s eccentricities.  ^_^

  • One thing I don’t like about the ship?


  • The song I would say fits them?

…oh I’m terrible at those kinds of questions.  I honestly have no idea.  O_o;;;

  • Another headcanon about the paring? (Free space)

Since I still have that whole prompt of headcanon to write for you, I’m going to wait on this one (also I have to run if I’m going to make it to yoga on time.)  So, to be continued…?  ^_^

…You say you haven’t read enough about Romantics, but  the idea of them spamming their own tag,often with wildly contradictory headcanons, is absolutely the French Romantics ~~Experience. That is EXACTLY what they would do. I am facepalming at how much it’s what they would do. GAD.  

*laughs*  IT JUST SEEMED SO THEM.  I’m glad I wasn’t off the mark!  ;D


Enjolras and Feuilly <3



Send me ships

Yessssssssssss.  ^____________^  OK, so we’ve discussed this many times before but Enjolras/Feuilly is definitely a ‘10′ ship for me (maybe an ‘11′ by now?  XD).  ^_^  They’re just too adorable because they respect and admire each other SO MUCH and can you imagine how good they’d be for each other?  I mean, they both suck at self-care because they get too wrapped up in their causes, but they’d be SO GOOD at taking care of each other.  *_*

But it took them a long time to get there.

They have such a slow courtship.  Seriously.  SO. SLOW.

When they first met, Feuilly was very closed off emotionally.  He was passionate, sure, but he didn’t open up about himself much.  He was quick to take up a cause, but slow to let anyone else in.  He’d lost too much in his life and he’d been hurt too often and it had turned him shy of making new friendships.  And he’d been so focused on getting out and doing better for himself that romance just never seemed to be in the cards.

Enjolras, OTOH, was an open book… he’d just never really thought about dating much. 
There were always other things
which took precedence – school, friends, injustice.  Who had time for
romance, right? 

If pressed he’d have
said that he was asexual and aromantic, since a history of a lack of interest must mean something, right?

But when he meets Feuilly, they just *click*.

Pfft.  No, they don’t.

(More behind the cut because this is getting long and turning into a mini-fic, good grief. O_o;;;)

Keep reading

Oh my gosh I love thiiiis. and I can picture it so well, I love this backstory for them! thank you! 😀

Aw, yay!  I’m glad you like it!  😀  SLOW BURN ENJOLRAS/FEUILLY GIVES ME LIIIIIIIIIIFE.  ^__________^  Especially poor awkward Enjolras trying to be so cool and just… NOT.  XD  And Feuilly slowly, slowly, slowly, learning to trust him?  aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah~~~~~!!  XD

(*coughs*  Sorry.  Don’t mind me. I’m just over here having Feuillings.  ^_~)

headcanons for jehan?


Didn’t Crowley wake up in ‘32…? 

(I love the idea of him bopping around and enjoying the Romantic weirdness. He WOULD.) 

Yes!  Yes, he did!  *digs up kindle edition*


  • Bahorel was the one who introduced him to the rest of Les Amis. They met in a cemetery, Jehan contemplating the mysteries of existence, Bahorel hiding from cops. They ended up discussing theatre and constellations.
  • His fashion (well, more like anti-fashion) choices make him a bit too conspicuous for ‘field work’ so he has to keep around an Enjolras-and-Feuilly approved set for more secretive errands.
  • His knowledge of various languages comes in handy – oh, what pamphlet drafts and what notes, officer, what are you talking about? These are merely my ponderings on religious texts in Hebrew. See? You can read it if you’d like!
  • Talks to his potted plants. (His next door neighbour also does this but apparently he believes threatening them yields the best results. It does, his plants are always lush and beautiful, but Jehan doesn’t have the heart to copy him, so he sticks to kind words. Weird fellow, that neigbour. Always wears sunglasses, even indoors. Jehan approves.)*
  • He’s a straight up Disney prince, he feeds the birds whenever he can – and sometimes gives them midnight flute concerts. His neighbours do NOT approve, except the one with the glasses. He says he should keep it up but maybe do it a bit louder.
  • He’s very much taken with the idea of Love and falls in love with every second woman he meets (or at least he imagines himself to be in love). Thing is, he’s way too timid to actually talk to girls and even if he managed to get together with someone he wouldn’t know how to proceed. He probably wouldn’t really want to.
  • His second favourite person after Bahorel is Combeferre – they’ve gone ghost-hunting together to every single reportedly haunted place in the general vincity of Paris. They also like to discuss linguistics and translation errors in works of literature.
  • He tends to make a mistake of idolising people – painting them as larger than life and putting them on a pedestal, out of his own reach. That’s his constant mistake with women, but he does it with men too, sometimes. Enjolras, for example. It took him catching him in a very vulnerable moment to start to see him as a common mortal human – after that, despite their obvious differences they grew pretty close.
  • He definitely has at least one skull at home. Nobody ever asked how he’s gotten them but they all suspect they didn’t come from a medical collection…
  • He keeps an axlotl. He insist they have the key to immortality. He doesn’t experiment on it or anything, he just keeps it as a pet. (He noticed he’s getting a lot more respect from the neigbour with the glasses since he mentioned this fact to him.)

*In this universe Crowley didn’t sleep through the 19th century.

“EVIL IN GENERAL does not sleep, and therefore doesn’t see why anyone else should. But Crowley liked sleep, it was one of the pleasures of the world. Especially after a heavy meal. He’d slept right through most of the nineteenth century, for example. Not because he needed to, simply because he enjoyed it.*

* Although he did have to get up in 1832 to go to the lavatory.”

So, maybe he got up and stuck around for a while because he enjoyed Jehan’s flute playing?  ^_^

This year and new stuff!


Hey guys, I just wanted to check in and say some stuff. I’m the new mod for this blog, which really has no impact at all on Courferre Week, but I feel like I’d be lying to you if I didn’t say.

Courferre week is August 7-13th this year, and I’m super excited! (My name’s Cassandra -or Cass if you want-, if you’re wondering) Things are the same as last year, tag your stuff as ‘Courferre week’ when it gets there!

Also, how would you guys feel if I made themes for each of the days? Cool or should it be freestyle?

Yay!  I was just about to put out a general ask about this.  ^_^  Glad to hear it’s gong to happen and I’ll make sure to add it to the calendar.  ^_^

As for themes, I’m usually lucky if I even get anything written for Courferre Week at all, much less written to a theme, but if you think it would motivate people, then why not, right?  ^_^

Thanks so much for picking this up!  😀


Les Mis Modern Aesthetic, Joly

He was the gayest of them all. All these young, maniacal, puny, merry incoherences lived in harmony together, and the result was an eccentric and agreeable being whom his comrades, who were prodigal of winged consonants, called Jolllly. “You may fly away on the four L’s,” Jean Prouvaire said to him.

First of all, thank you.  Those tags totally made my night.  XD  (…yes, I stalk my reblogs.  Sorry.  -.-;;;)

Second of all, I will GLADLY babble at you about this particular headcanon, if you like.  JUST SAY THE WORD.  Because it is a fully-formed headcanon with a trilogy of fic attached to it and it is very, VERY near and dear to my heart and I will happily grab any excuse to babble about it.  ^_______^


THEY REALLY ARE. XD With their little hedgehog faces and their little hedgehog feet and their roly-poly bodies and IT SHOULD BE UNFAIR FOR ANYONE TO BE THAT CUTE. …but they’re so cute, I don’t even mind. ;D ^_______^




But you know what?  TWO CAN PLAY AT THAT GAME.  ^___________^

2, 3, and 4, for Waking Dream? ^_^


2) What scene did you first put down?

Sienca.  I started right at the beginning to figure out HOW, and then let everything spiral from that point.  🙂

What’s your favorite line of narration? 

uhmmmmhummm.  Not sure I have a favorite, but this one is nice:

trailed him all the way back to their quarters, and it had nothing to do with
the young man suddenly remembering proper protocol.  If it weren’t for Jedi training, Qui-Gon
suspected that Obi-Wan would have been gaping outright.  

Every time
Qui-Gon glanced back to check on his Padawan, the boy’s eyes were darting around,
taking in all aspects of Temple architecture and life.  Qui-Gon had the distinct impression that
Obi-Wan was trying valiantly not to stare at each passing member of the Order.

reached their quarters without incident, a fact that left Qui-Gon releasing a
quiet sigh of relief.  He wasn’t certain
that Obi-Wan would be able to handle curiosity from friends right now.  Hell, Qui-Gon didn’t think that he was up to
questions yet, either.

inside, Obi-Wan stopped dead in his tracks.
Then, before Qui-Gon could say a word, he proceeded to touch everything.

watched, realizing he was witnessing an intense act of re-familiarization.  There was nothing in the common room that was
not investigated, by quick touch or by being picked up and explored with nimble

Those marvelous shields Obi-Wan now possessed let
nothing slip, but Qui-Gon could read body language when no other options
existed.  His Padawan was deeply upset, disturbed
by everything surrounding him, and shaken by his meeting with the Council.

4)  “Panic is for when the crisis has passed.”

Nice!  And that’s one of my favorite bits of narration, too, actually!  I usually end up re-reading that bit once or twice every time I get to it.  ^_^


I can get the image of Enjolras and Feuilly cuddling and Enjolras falling asleep with his face against Feuilly’s neck and Feuilly kind of having a mini-meltdown inside because oh my goood…

( @eirenical it’s your fault)

I AM VERY VERY HAPPY TO TAKE THE BLAME FOR THIS.  No qualms WHATSOEVER.  ^______________^  In fact, I will gladly take the blame for any and all instances of being unable to get images of Enjolras/Feuilly sleepy cuddles out of your head.  XD




Hey Les mis fandom, can we have a rarepair week?? This post gave me like 6 new ships I want to write for.

Yeah, those are fun!:D @eirenical, what’s a good open date on the calendar?

OH GOSH.  I’m sorry, for some reason the mention didn’t work and I missed this.  O_O  And oh man, I’m ALWAYS up for a rarepair week!

Anyway, as far as I know, everything is wide open.  The only thing going on is @lesmissummerhols gearing up and the @lesmis-bigbang winding down?  I haven’t heard anything else about anyone running a week any time in the near future.  So, whatever week you want, it’s yours @spearmintstardust!

But if you’d like to check out the calendar, here it is: Les Mis Fandom Calendar.

(…that reminds me, I need to get the LM Summer Holds dates on there.  Oops.  ^_^)

So, yeah.  Pick a week and it’s yours!  Just let me know which one you pick/the details of the week, so I can put it on the calendar.  ^_^

Yo I am READY for this.

Looking at the LMBB, Summer Hols and my schedule, I want to say the last week of June? June 26-July 2?

I’m going to make a side blog for this and try to figure out what ships won’t qualify. ♥

Done!  The week is yours.  ^_^  Just let me know when you decide what tag you want to use and make the side blog and everything and I’ll be happy to add those to the calendar page..
