    Summary

    “Here’s the thing, though.” Grantaire says, wrenching his wrists out of Courfeyrac’s grip. “People like your parents are real snobs about preserving magic. But magic was made to evolve. That’s what it’s for.” The room is completely silent. Grantaire can feel his breath stuttering in his chest. “I bet they told you that magic only works if it’s written on parchment with a quill pen or something, right?” He doesn’t need to see Enjolras nod. “Bahorel’s got tribal tattoos with more magic in them than any of your textbooks. Feuilly does incantations in plainspoken French that can stop a thunderstorm. Bossuet can literally write spells into computer codes.” He takes a step closer and lowers his voice. His words are fierce. “And if you give me birch bark and two drops of your blood I’ll be able to find you no matter where in the world you run. You were taught an archaic system that almost no one uses anymore by an elitist pair of pseudo-intellectuals.”

    Summary

    Grantaire's family is the largest collection of idiots he's ever seen exist in one place without succumbing to death by natural selection. They're ridiculous, chaotic, sad, furious, utterly codependent, and, er, they have wings. They're also imprisoned in a secret government facility that experiments on them for unknown (but Grantaire's gonna go ahead and say sinister) reasons. The revolution will not be civilised.

    Summary

    A bunch of little linked but independent exR stories, written fast and flung online still sloppy, that help me weather the meltdown.

    I hope they help you too.

    Summary

    There are cars honking at each other on the other side of the city and a couple fighting in the park on the other side of the street. And he’s sat in a hotel room on a cobbled street somewhere in Paris, learning how to love a person trying to leave.

     

     

    [enjolras realises his feelings for grantaire aren't as planotic as he hoped they were, as grantaire decides to end what was anything but a casual relationship between them.]
