    Summary

    “Come now, let us not pretend, Monsieur. Pascal writes dreadfully theoretical essays on science and mathematics, incomprehensible to most laymen and pretentious gibberish even to those versed in the field! That hardly seems stimulating for a young man such as yourself! I am sure there are other texts you would prefer to read. Why, the very fact that you are so eager to pause your intellectual pursuits to bicker with me proves it cannot be as fascinating as you insist.”

    Promptly, the man returns to perusing his book, color high on his cheeks. Grantaire cannot help but grin.

    a.k.a. When Grantaire Met Enjolras

    Summary

    "So, what? Cyberlife gave you a preference for ugly, old, washed-up bastards?"

    Connor intentionally allows himself to appear unamused. "Absolutely not." He waits for Hank to look at him again before delivering his punchline. "I believe I developed that for myself."

    Summary

    Grantaire’s first flower appears when he is two years old. It’s late, for a First Bloom, considering some children are born with their First already etched above their hearts, but Grantaire’s parents are warm and loving and wait to see what sort of child they have born unto the world.

    His First Bloom, when it comes, is vibrant patch of yellow carnations. He is too young to know what it means, and his parents don’t tell him, just—withdraw, and a much smaller patch of yellow carnations appears on his mother’s ankle.
