    Summary

    Arthur doesn't care much about the popular radio program Dragon's Lonely Hearts until his ex-girlfriend calls in to slag him off and get advice. When he calls in and has an on-air argument with the host, it starts off more than he expected, including meddling friends, overinvolved fans, and maybe love.

    Summary

    Camelot Publishing publishes romance novels, and when Arthur founds a new imprint of gay romance and invites his best friend and pet writer Merlin to write for it, it's a bit too easy to miss the fact that apparently he's living in one.

    Summary

    “We need you to be married,” Lamarque says.

    Pretend to be married,” Fantine clarifies. “Or pretend to be boyfriends, that’s fine too.”

    “It’s the living together that’s important.”

    Grantaire swallows. “I beg your pardon?”

    ---

    Or: the one where Enjolras and Grantaire are spies sent to a small village in the south of France to be undercover boyfriends.

    Summary

    Enjolras is in the running to be the youngest ever president of the United States, an independent candidate facing off a media hopelessly bewitched by the brilliance of this impossibly resolute politician and his charming, cheeky running mate, Courfeyrac. They don’t know what to make of this band of youths who speak of lady liberty as if she were flesh, headed by campaign chief Combeferre who courts the chequebooks with polished grace on one hand and edits the excessively flowery speeches of staffer Jehan with patient exasperation on the other. He hires eponine, the viciously streetsmart ivy scholarship child as the head political strategist together with Cosette, communications director. They are backed increasingly openly by Marius, the eldest son from a long line of rich republicans, himself bedazzled by enjolras from their days at university. Along for the ride is Grantaire, a hardened political journalist who appears to function exclusively on caffeine and alcohol, who trusts all politicians only to the extent that he can throw them but somehow finds himself thinking that maybe, just maybe, his messiah has come.
