Just imagine this. Modern day Ferre is on his high school’s/uni’s swim team. That’s just too much for Courf. Not only is his best friend the biggest (and most adorable) nerd, but he is also a very good swimmer. There have been many occasions on which Courf has frozen in his place/dropped whatever he is holding upon seeing his friend going out of the swimming pool after practice (because we all know that he would love watching Ferre practice; he is also great at encouraging him). The man looks like a god – wet hair sticking to his face, water dripping from his bare chest.
After a big competition where Ferre wins, Courf is so excited that he runs to him immediately to give him a giant hug BUT Ferre is still standing on the edge of the pool and doesn’t expect that so they both end up in the water, laughing and hugging and at some point probably kissing.
Okay but imagine Jehan and Courf having sleepovers.
Imagine the shenanigans
Imagine the weird breakfast concoctions
Imagine the Combeferre finding flowers pressed in every single one of his books
Okay but soulmate au where Marius has “put your hands up or I shoot” and courfeyrac has “oh thank GOD, you must be my soulmate. Also, do you always take laser tag this seriously?”
And Marius spends most of his life unbelievably terrified bc his soulmate is going to try and KILL HIM.
And courf just goes to play laser tag a lot.
I always wonder about Javert’s line “this time there is no mistake” when they’ve arrested the wrong Jean Valjean. Like, you have done this before? You keep arresting people as that one bread thief from the past? HOW DO YOU STILL HAVE YOUR JOB?
it appears that i am… (adjusts glasses) (flips through pages of memo pad) (presses fingers to temples) (sweats) (whispers) …. gay
“and now, it’s time for another episode of light things on fire! i’m your host courfeyrac, and sitting in with my today is enjolras!”
jehan plays a single note on a small triangle, and the podcast gets under way.
“enjolras! what are we lighting on fire today?”
“the first order,” enjolras says immediately, leaning forward in his chair and gripping the microphone. “if the force awakens is about anything, other than proving to disney that men of color and women can helm a billion dollar recoup, and proving to the rest of us that capitalism is alive and well, it’s about fighting with everything you’ve got.”
“tell me more,” courfeyrac coos, and makes frantic shushing motions at jehan, who is humming john williams in the background. jehan looks afronted.
enjolras doesn’t even notice, too rapt. “it’s a movie about standing up, and – no spoilers, because some people didn’t make the midnight show -” grantaire feigns sleep in a corner “- it’s also a movie about helping your friends. it’s about standing up as a way of loving your friends. and that is why we’re going to light the first order on fire.”
courfeyrac strikes a match. “on your order, commander.”
TBH this is the only reaction I can think of right now:
no but this actually makes me laugh so hard?? like can you imagine??
What if Marius and Cosette were that kind of couple that marry early ? And of course Pontmercy being himself he always brings up his wife in any conversation and people are just ‘… but you’re like 23 aren’t you′
Okay. Apparently I have a lot of feelings about this. Because when you get married that young, people assume a lot of weird crap–so Cosette and Marius being mistaken for siblings because they’re so young that the only way they’d have the same last name is if they’re siblings, not because they’re married. And people assuming that Cosette is pregnant when they announce they’re getting married–and getting married soon (because they don’t want to spend a year+ planning a wedding, they just want to be married.) And people–not their friends, because of course their friends are super supportive–telling them that they’re making a mistake, that they can’t possibly know they want to spend the rest of their lives together, that they’re throwing the best years of their lives away, that they’re just going to end up divorced in a few years anyway.
But Marius and Cosette just don’t care about all the nay-sayers because they’re in love and being married and becoming a family is so so important to them. They’re not stupid. They know marriage is hard work, they know that a lot of marriages fail, and they know they’re young and that there’s a lot of life they haven’t experienced, but they also know they want to share those experiences with each other. So yeah. They’re totally that couple that gets married in their early twenties–and they have a beautiful, happy marriage and become that old couple you see in parks and shopping centers who are still completely and totally devoted to each other in their old age.
