    Summary

    Sometimes it feels like he’s breaking. Like a fiery bird made out of all of his anger and desperation and hopeless longing will finally break the cage of his ribs and take flight only to combust like Icarus, leaving nothing but the crumpled shell of him behind. Sometimes it feels like there is nothing inside of him but the waste of burned-out stars and dirty snow. Sometimes he’s filled to spilling with an idealism so bright and pure that he can almost feel the light of it escaping him, leaking out through his eyes in white shards. In those moments he feels like he could raise his hand and bless or destroy, he does not know which. There is a part of him that still believes in something already half-forgotten from the stories of his childhood, even though he hopes for nothing. What he believes in, what there is left to believe in for someone who is afraid of nothing and has never been given a reason to have faith in anyone, he does not know either. He is a fanatic without a cause and fights carrying no banner but his anger.

    Summary

    "Grantaire was happy enough to join Bahorel and Jehan’s team, happy enough to mock and destroy, but he could not build. Even when Combeferre put aside his books and joined Courfeyrac and Enjolras, Grantaire couldn’t help but mock their solutions, their ideals, as well as everything else. Bahorel and Jehan didn’t seem to mind; they steered the conversation back into mockery and appreciated Grantaire’s skill with caricature. Courfeyrac seemed to like Grantaire’s puns, and even Combeferre liked practicing his aim against Grantaire. However, it was clear that the game had fundamentally changed."

    Summary

    The system is just the same as always and Grantaire was proven right, and from Heaven above and Hell below and Purgatory in between, he did not want to be right.
