For the headcanon meme — I can’t decide between Feuilly and Courfeyrac so how about both? ^_^


😀 my children. I’m going to make this five each because I’m so tired sorry ahh.


  • A lot of people are surprised when they hear this – although no one who really knows him – but Courf is really really good with languages. He doesn’t study them like Prouvaire or Marius do and he’s not perfectly fluent, but he speaks at least half a dozen European languages.
  • He says it’s because his family travelled a lot when he was younger and he picked them up like a sponge. It’s really super impressive.
  • But like, his friends aren’t surprised because they know how incredibly smart he is! Enjolras especially is always telling him how brilliant Courfeyrac is. And Courfeyrac is always flattered and happy about it, because he never thought ‘intelligent’ was one of the things people thought about him (it is – but he doesn’t think it’s how he comes across as.)
  • He can’t eat fish or other sea food. It makes him sick every single time.
  • Speaking of making him sick: has a rocky relationship with his parents, but nothing compared to the pure venom between him and his older brother. Courfeyrac isn’t bad-tempered, but he isn’t a calm and collected person either. His brother, though, can make him absolutely explode in rage in five seconds top. He’s just so smug and snob and arrogant and terrible. (Combeferre’s his only friend who has met Courfeyrac’s brother. If anyone expected him to say Courfeyrac’s exaggerating, they would be dissapointed. Combeferre despises him too after meeting him only once.) 


  • He is really really good with hair! Like, at the orphanage one of the ladies who took care of the kids used to have him do her hair for her; in exchange she brought him pastries whenever she happened to go out to a bakery.
  • His own hair is always a mess because he just doesn’t bother and only cuts it when it’s getting so long it gets into his eyes when he works.
  • Even then. It’s happened that he’s had to borrow one of his fellow fan painters’ hairpin to pin it back because he hadn’t realised it was so long and it can’t cut it right now but it’s so annoying…
  • He gets massive headaches/migraines. Like, they get really really bad. Exhaustion, not always eating very well, too much reading in low light, eyestrain from work, stress – reasons depends on how he’s doing at that time, but he doesn’t remember a time when he didn’t have them. He’s forced himself to work through most of of the pain but honestly sometimes it’s just impossible.
  • Speaks/read only French, but has excellent handwriting (of course)

AAAAAH.  I LOVE THESE.  😀  I now have an image of bb!Feuilly with his tongue sticking out between his teeth and concentrating Very Hard while doing the lady’s hair and I WILL CARRY THAT IMAGE WITH ME ALWAYS BECAUSE TOO PRECIOUS FOR WORDS.  XD  *squeaks*

AND COURFEYRAC.  Aaaaaaaaaah~~~!!  Courfeyrac, whose friends think he’s smart and he just doesn’t see it IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE TROPES WITH HIM.  And I hate his brother already, TOO.  *grrrrr*

Thank you!!  I love them!  😀

1, 3, 6, 15 for Courfeyrac for the headcanon meme. ^_^


1. Holiday headcanon

His favourite holiday is Christmas, hands down. Not for the traditions – he doesn’t even have a tradition – but because it’s an excuse to spoil his friends and hang out with them and make them happy, to share the things that make him and them happy, and he loves the warmth of the season.

3. Sleeping headcanon

Courfeyrac sleeps like a kitten. He’s so cute it’s almost unbearable. He snores just a little, it’s not even annoying, it’s just cute. He curls up in a ball and looks as if he’s smiling – which he probably is, oh my god. Oh my god. No. You can’t see Courfeyrac sleeping and not go ‘aw, bb’. It’s impossible.

He goes to sleep pretty early, and he’s super cranky and moody when he hasn’t had a full night’s sleep, so he tries to avoid that. He’s a morning person, too, and it’s just as well because his favourite meal of the day is breakfast. If you’re sleeping over at Courfeyrac’s on the weekend, you can be sure he’ll make you the brightest, tastiest, greatest breakfast you’ll ever have.

6. Hugging headcanon

Courfeyrac communicates a lot with his body, and it includes hugging. The kind of friend who hugs his hellos and goodbyes. When he’s worried or insecure, like after fighting with a friend or when something bad’s happened, he won’t feel better until he’s gotten to hug the person.

15Singing headcanon

He’s a good singer! His family was always quite musically involved. He’s never taken singing lessons, but theater yes, so he has a good control over his voice. He plays the guitar, too, and loves to sing wile playing. What he doesn’t have in pure singing talent he makes up for it in enthusiasm and love for the song. 

OMG, YES. I love each and every one of these!  😀  And I feel that hugging headcanon SO MUCH because that is so me it’s ridiculous.

In fact, I’ll take it one further.  I bet that sometimes–when all his friends are busy with finals or when they go home/away for vacations and just don’t see each other for a while–he starts to feel touch-starved.  Because he needs that physical contact for reassurance.  And when he doesn’t get it, he gets very, very sad.  He wouldn’t say anything about it, though.  Because the last thing he wants is to be a bother to anyone.  But it slowly starts to wear him down until someone finally notices that he’s a little off and innocently wraps an arm around his shoulders to give him a one-armed hug or a pat or something innocuous like that.  (For some reason I feel like it would be Marius or Feuilly or maybe even Bahorel?)  And Courfeyrac just becomes an octopus, diving right into that hug full force and not letting go for way longer than a normal hug would last.  And maybe it’s a little awkward at first, because WOW, NOT WHAT I WAS EXPECTING WHEN I OFFERED THIS ITTY BITTY HUG??  But whoever initiated it usually picks up on the fact that Courfeyrac needs that hug, for whatever reason and settles in to give back as good as they’re getting and yes, that’s why we’ve been standing here blocking the doorway for the past ten minutes, what’s your point?
