    Summary

    Alcohol was a convenient excuse for the bizarre anachronisms Grantaire tended to utter at the wrong moment, like when he called Jehan’s outfit a hot mess or exclaimed that the bottle of wine he was drinking was the best thing since sliced bread. It explained why he doodled little Mickey Mouses in the corners of his parchment or absentmindedly folded paper airplanes before he remembered that it was some 30 years before the term aviation would even be coined.

    And it even allowed Grantaire to temporarily forget that in the year 2015, he had been unceremoniously transported back in time to 1830 with no clue how, why, or more importantly, how he was ever supposed to return to his own time.

    Summary

    He closes his eyes, squeezes them shut tightly, and tries to get his breathing under control, because it can’t be, it can’t fucking be, because you don’t see colours unless you see your soulmate, and Grantaire was pissed drunk last night and he couldn’t have, he mustn’t have

    He opens his eyes.

    The colours remain.

    (Or, the one where the world is black-and-white until you meet your soulmate.)

    Summary

    Enjolras has not only fake-married an alcoholic annoyance who doesn't take anything he says or does seriously, he somehow did it while Jehan was live-tweeting the civil ceremony. He's fighting for marriage equality, but the evidence overwhelmingly points to the fact that marriage as an institution is dead, and that he has personally helped administer its Barthesian coup de grâce.
