23, Who comes up with cheesy pick up lines?
oh my god. Bossuet thinks about them on the spot – Joly always thinks about them too late/too slowly, and it’s frustrating to him, so, to compromise, they buy this notepad and put it on the fridge; Joly writes them whenever he thinks about them, leaving them for Bossuet to read when he wakes up in the morning. ❤
-bahorel won a flower shop in a fight. He does not remember who he won it from or why he was fighting, only that he also won the guy’s snazzy waistcoat
-bahorel does not know how to run a flower shop and refuses to acknowledge any of the legal side to running a business
-he puts a cryptic ad in the paper looking for a manager, and Cosette is the only person who replies to it
-he and Cosette run the store together and make each other flower crowns on their breaks
-Cosette rides a motorbike to make deliveries. Bahorel uses a tiny old fashioned horse and cart (don’t ask he won it in a bet)
-the rest of the Amis are amazed when they find out giant, buff, tattooed Bahorel works in this tiny place
-he and Cosette make everyone flower crowns on their birthdays
-she will fight anyone who tries to diss their shop like seriously sometimes even Bahorel has to hold her back
-God help anyone who angers them both
Combeferre: Everyone brings their own unique strengths to the table. Some that even I don’t have.
Courfeyrac: You shut your mouth! You have ALL the strengths!
The thing is they’ve both tried flirting with each other for TWO MOTHER F**KING YEARS and neither of them gets that the other is flirting.
It started off really subtle.
Combeferre took a picture of a sunflower and sent it to Courfeyrac with the caption [found you in my garden :)].
Courfeyrac went to a nature museum without Combeferre but sent him a picture of a cool-looking moth with the caption [you ;)].
Combeferre called him minutes later, “YOU WENT TO THE MUSEUM WITHOUT ME!!!”
Courfeyrac faceplams. He knew he’d have to take it a step further…at this point they both did.
Courfeyrac stole Combeferre’s glasses to mess with him one day.
“Come on, Courf, give them back! I can’t see shit!” Ferre groaned.
“Why should I?” Courf asked.
“Because I can’t admire that beautiful face of yours without them,” Ferre replied.
Now any normal person would’ve taken that as blatant flirtation, not Courf. He just thought Ferre was trying to sweet talk him into returning his glasses (it totally worked though).
Ferre wasn’t sure if he was happy to have his glasses back, or upset that Courf still didn’t get it.
Then there was the time that Combeferre texted him late at night telling him to go to sleep because he just knew Courf was awake worrying about an exam.
[Courf, go to sleep. You’re gonna do fine on this test. Stop worrying and get some rest or so help me I will some over there]
[And what’ll u do 2 me when u get here? ;)]
[Kill you for working yourself up like this. Courfeyrac, you are smarter than you think and you’re gonna do great on this exam. Go to sleep for me?]
Combeferre is lying in his bed thinking, ‘He really doesn’t know by now that he’s amazing and I love him?’
Courfeyrac is lying in his bed thinking, ‘I just basically asked him if he wanted to have sex with me and he told me to go to sleep.’
This calls for drastic measures.
Courf actually straight up said, “Cute ass, Ferre,” as Ferre bent over to pick something up.
And Ferre just replied, “Thanks, Courf.”
Like he wasn’t even phased.
Ferre sends him the link to the song “You’re My Best Friend” by Queen because Ferre loves Queen and says, [Reminds me of you.]
Courfeyrac LISTENS TO THE SONG then types back [Aaawww Ferre! Ur my best friend 2!!!]
Ferre audible groans and almost throws his phone across the room. He immediately texts Enjolras (who’s literally two rooms over, but Ferre doesn’t feel like walking)
[Can you believe this? I sent him a LOVE song and said it reminded me of him and he still doesn’t get it! How can I flirt more obviously than that?!]
He looked at the top of his screen and saw Courf’s name, and immediately panicked. Another text came through before he reposnded.
[UR flirting with me????]
Ferre shrugs and types [Yep, have been for two years, thanks for noticing]
There’s no response, instead his phone starts ringing, it’s Courf.
Courf can barely speak he’s laughing so hard, “We’re idiots, both of us are idiots!”
“I’ve been flirting with you, too, dumbass!”
“You….wait….that was?…oh my god we are idiots!”
“I can’t believe this.”
“Come over and we can actually talk about this, I’m hanging up now, idiot.”
Courfeyrac goes to Combeferre’s place and they do talk about it…they do much more than just talk.
Grantaire: Excuse me, Enjolras. Who made you the boss of the group?
Joly: You did.
Courfeyrac: You said, “Enjolras should be boss.”
Joly: And then you said, “Let’s vote,” and it was unanimous.
Courfeyrac: You made him that little plaque that said “BOSS OF US.” You put on sparkles.
Y’all saw Fra’s tweets of his nieces painting his back with neon polka dots and scribbles and whatnot a few days ago right?
Consider Courf inviting Ferre over to his parents house for dinner one night, and all his siblings and their spouses and kids are there as well, and Courf has barely taken a step inside before he’s surrounded by several nieces and a nephew or two just begging to let him be their canvas (they painted on him once after he showed them his tattoo, and ever since then they’ve looooved painting on him)
Courf quickly agrees and Ferre realizes what is happening a second too late. His mouth goes dry as he watches Courf take his shirt off, completely frozen in place.
And Ferre has to deal with a shirtless Courfeyrac for an entire hour. It doesn’t help that Courf absolutely adores the kids and he’s so great with them.
Ferre is practically swooning the whole time
