Joly, Bossuet, and Grantaire lose a bet to the rest of Les Amis and they have to talk in puns 24/7, around Les Amis or not, in university or at work or not.
Losing this bet makes no difference to their speech patterns whatsoever.


AU where Joly’s first name is Roger and for the first day of school every year he shows up wearing pirate shit for when a teacher inevitably calls out Joly, Roger in class 

He meets Grantaire in his freshman year of high school when the other boy aggressively insists on being called R

No one is really surprised when they’re both sent to the office for talking like pirates for the rest of the class. 
And that’s where they meet Bossuet, who had taken the fall for some Pontmercy kid

Needless to say, he is 100% down with pirate lingo, the principal has no idea what to do with them, and it’s only day one




let the wine of friendship never run dry

joly, R, bossuet – revolutionary drinking bros 4 lyfe.

Awww, saps.  This is lovely and then SO UPSETTING with that quote– and it doesn’t fit anyone better than these three. 

‘Scuse me, gotta go have emotions now.
