    Summary

    “It is our belief that if the soul were visible to the eye every member of the human species would be seen to correspond to some species of the animal world and a truth scarcely perceived by thinkers would be readily confirmed, namely, that from the oyster to the eagle, from the swine to the tiger, all animals are to be found in men and each of the exists in some man, sometimes several at a time."

    Summary

    “The amnesiac has questions,” says Grantaire. Boyfriend grips the wheel. “Don’t worry, we’ll start with the 200 dollar Jeopardy trivia.” A semi roars past them. “What’s your name?”
    The perfect sinew and bones of his fingers relax. “Oh,” he murmurs. Just like that, defenses lowered. “Enjolras.”
    “Cool,” Grantaire says. “I’m Grantaire.”
    Something happens to Enjolras’ face which, if you zoomed in, might be considered a smile. “I know.”
    “How long have we been dating, Enjolras?”
    The almost-smile is gone. The gameshow metaphor has become too apt; someone’s lost it all. “That’s complicated.”
    Well. Grantaire should’ve known some part of this fairytale was too good to be true. He’s best friends with a streetsmart renegade and someone who wrote him a welcome-back-to-consciousness poem in godawful blue icing on an orange frosted cookie cake. There are nearly ten people who were waiting for him to wake up in a hospital room.
    Of course his inexplicable relationship with his supernova hot, socially conscientious boyfriend is ‘complicated.’
