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.
So this is your friendly reminder that every time a cannon fired at the barricade, Courfeyrac said, “Bless you!” And Les Amis found it hilarious. Mind you, this is at the literal barricade, amidst all the bloodshed and turmoil. Les Amis are so incredibly dorky and I love them. Allrighty bye.
Don’t tell me Marius never went to serenade Cosette under her windows with Courfeyrac playing the ukulele in the bushes cause I’m pretty sure they did
this just in: aaron tveit is actually an 80 year old man
Courfeyrac comes home one day to find Combeferre attempting to make pies because “We have been married for 3 years, 1 month, and 4 days. 3.14” and Courf cries because he is so in love with this total nerd
