Muet, Chapter 8 (36,357 words)

So, there it was: take a risk on his own intuition, take a chance that Eponine was trustworthy, take a chance that in so doing both he and Enjolras might be remade whole again… or go home and destroy everything and everyone he’d ever loved.

Courfeyrac made his decision.

January 10, 2016: *tiny waves* Hello, everyone! I realize it’s been awhile. To say that last semester was hard on me would be a major understatement. I drowned in last semester. *sigh* And my writing suffered in a HUGE way. Anyway, part of the reason it suffered is because I let it fall way to the bottom of the priority list and I ended up putting it off for so long that I developed a near-phobia about it. And that’s not good. For so many reasons. I’m mentally healthiest when I have writing as an outlet. Not having that outlet was part of what made last semester so damned awful. So, I’m making the decision, right now, to make writing a priority again. My own mental health is way more important than all the other responsibilities I have. So. Here’s hoping that means I’ll be posting more regularly. ^_^

Anyway, here’s hoping this chapter was worth the wait! We’re finally heading into the part where the plot will start moving. I’m excited that we made it here, and hopefully you will be, too. ^_^
