    Summary

    Amis House might not be the biggest student co-op, or the fanciest, but it's got something all its own. Specifically, smoke damage on the kitchen ceiling from that time Courfeyrac lit a political pamphlet on fire.

    In which there are secrets, pining, pancakes, and revelations, and sometimes the shortest distance between three points is not a triangle but a circle.

    Summary

    Grantaire leans against the edge of the door and looks out at him in bemusement. "You're the smartest man I know, Enjolras. I know your memory isn't this bad."

    Enjolras's smile fades away to a bewildered frown. "What?"

    "They're out again. They're always out on Thursdays. It's date night. I know you know this, I've only told you half a dozen times. And yet you keep showing up."

    Summary

    Grantaire’s never been big on celebrating his birthday because he hates the cake and the candles and people pretending that they care about you for propriety’s sake. He tells Joly that it’s late November and Courfeyrac that it’s early March, tells Feuilly he has leap year birthdays and Marius that he’s a Christmas child. He spends his birthdays alone, and that is fine.

    Summary

    Ten minutes to go to ground zero and Artyom was still desperately trying to escape. “I have never attended little girl’s birthday party,” he pointed out repeatedly, and actually pouted, big blue eyes wide and pleading.

    “Always a first time,” Napoleon said mercilessly, pulling on a charcoal Tom Ford blazer over his loose gray knit. “Mrs Siegfried invited us weeks ago, Artyom, don’t be a baby. You’ve had quite a while to gird your loins. We’re going to a party, not some sort of trench warfare. Smile.”

    Artyom scowled, which was admittedly normally an adorable look even for a tall, blonde Russian giant of a man. “I do not like Mrs Siegfried,” Artyom declared, clearly intent on being as recalcitrant as possible.
