    Summary

    The whole ship is like that: alive with light, as if light were the blood in its veins. It still bothers him when he's not tired enough to sleep, but he's starting to get used to it. Starting to appreciate that the thing he lives inside is almost as much of an organism as he is. Strange, but also strangely reassuring.

    Sometimes when he lies in the dark here, cocooned in his bunk, he wonders what it's like in the tube. If it's quiet. He hopes it's restful. Peaceful. Soft, like the sleep of late morning, with sun coming in from around the drapes. Steve wonders if the translucent panel that covers and shields and contains him also lets in light. If behind his closed eyelids, he can still see something, the way that Steve can when he shuts his own eyes here, now. If he is seeing a kind of permanent sunrise; a long dream of a slow dawn.

    Summary

    In 1826, a group of disreputable law students (to say nothing of Grantaire) keep running into a rival organisation with rather different convictions. They don't immediately hit it off.

    Summary

    Enjolras was an ice-maiden. Enjolras was a Valkyrie who rode through grey skies and never looked at the ground. She ran Les ABC with an iron fist, but as far as Grantaire knew, she lived like a nun; in a small circle full of incestuous hook-ups and girlfriend-swapping, she was an island without bridges, an ivory tower without a door.

    Summary

    “Enjolras,” Combeferre said. “Are you quite well?”

    Enjolras said nothing. His eyes were lowered, and his brows drawn down over them. After a moment, they lifted. “Not precisely.”

    Summary

    "Why love when the world might be ending? Love will come to no good when there is no France to house it. No; love is a game of the optimists, the folly of the rich, and I am neither. I will not play it." 

    Grantaire loves a man who cannot love, and the Revolution marches on.
