    Summary

    Grantaire has a plan: he’s going to ask Enjolras out on a date, and then kiss him exactly once, maybe just on the cheek. Enjolras will say no to the date. Enjolras will gently but coldly rebuke him. And then Grantaire will make himself get over him.

    It’s actually one small section of what he affectionately calls his "Stop Being Such A Fucking Mess" plan, but, admittedly, it’s an important one. Being hopelessly, desperately in love with Enjolras hasn’t exactly made him feel particularly good about himself, nor has it made him drink less, nor has it made him go to sleep early instead of staying up all night painting somebody he can never have.

    Summary

    "I miss you."
    "I'm right here."
    "No. You're way over there." And she reaches out and tucks a strand of crazy blonde hair behind one ear, their fingers still intertwined so both their knuckles rest against Wanderer’s new cheek.

    Summary

    He's sitting in a car with all of his belongings in the back seat and his hands wrapped around the steering wheel, admitting to himself that a stupid, dizzy firework of a one-night-stand with a man he'd barely known is one of the only bright memories he has right now.

    [In which Enjolras and Grantaire make some music, make some terrible decisions, and make a habit out of doing everything in the wrong order.]

    Bookmarker's Notes

    I don't have the words for how much I love this fic. Ch. 8 is like... the best words for how the inside of my brain can feel I've read. Ch. 9 is so heart-filling and good that it overwhelms a little bit. so so good.

    Summary

    Neither Rosa nor his mother had ever come up with a name for it. Enjolras had ended up tentatively calling it psychically enhanced empathy after devouring every sci-fi and fantasy book with psychic characters he could find (most of them confirming their insistence that he keep his secret hidden on pain of experimentation and a ruined life). He’d read everything out there, including a truly depressing number of crackpot books and magazine articles that recommended everything from communicating with angels to playing with crystals, all to try and enhance natural abilities and open the inner eye. None of those books or articles ever had any advice about making it stop.

     

    Enjolras is used to keeping himself physically distanced from everyone around him. But when he accidentally touches Grantaire, he finds himself wanting to break the rules he's always lived by.
