    Summary

    Grantaire’s first flower appears when he is two years old. It’s late, for a First Bloom, considering some children are born with their First already etched above their hearts, but Grantaire’s parents are warm and loving and wait to see what sort of child they have born unto the world.

    His First Bloom, when it comes, is vibrant patch of yellow carnations. He is too young to know what it means, and his parents don’t tell him, just—withdraw, and a much smaller patch of yellow carnations appears on his mother’s ankle.

    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.

    "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.

    “I just wish I could know what’s going on in your head.” What he means is, I will never be a part of you the way she was.

    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.
