    Summary

    Felix Tholomyès, like any self-satisfied 18th century gentleman, thinks it only natural he hides his mistress away at his hunting lodge. Bahorel, who stumbles upon Fantine and her adorable daughter on his way home to see his family, disagrees entirely. He thinks Fantine should be free to make friends and enjoy herself, preferably far away from Tholomyès. Fantine just wants a safe place for her daughter to grow up and make friends. Cosette just wants to find worms with the chickens...

    A mid-1700s adventure of wigs, silk dresses, respectful friendships and daring flights to freedom

    Summary

    The obvious question here, and Courfeyrac knew it, of course--because it wasn’t actually that hard if you weren’t someone like Grantaire, whose major seemed to be making obvious questions hard, God love him--the obvious question was, “Why not just ask out this hunky, hunky human masterpiece and end your uncharacteristic misery, you charming devil?”

    And the equally obvious answer was, “I’m trying.”

    But a guy like Feuilly didn’t come along every week. He needed to be swept off his feet. And that meant putting in a little effort. A little capital-R Romance. (Or rather, decidedly lower-case-r romance; Courfeyrac still had his card from the year Jehan did handmade Romantic Valentines for everyone. His said, “Let’s scream fruitlessly at a storm together, Valentine!”)

    Summary

    Losing his scholarship had been a cruel blow, one that had caught Feuilly completely flatfooted. Still, he hadn’t planned on telling anyone. He’d intended to take a semester or two off, earn some money, look into other scholarship options. That was how Marius had gotten involved in the first place. He might have come from money, but since walking away from his grandfather, he’d become a wizard at finding scholarships and grants and all kinds of loopholes to make his life more affordable. He was the one who’d found that marriage tuition break in the university’s by-laws. Still, nothing would ever have come of it if Courfeyrac hadn’t gotten Feuilly talking about it, hadn’t convinced him that it wasn’t as ludicrous an idea as it had first seemed, that they lived in a state with marriage equality and he was sure that any one of their friends would happily marry him a little just to help out, that, hell, he’d be honored to do it if Feuilly asked him.

    So, Feuilly did.

    Summary

    The Amis are volunteering a Children's Fair. Feuilly, Courfeyrac and Grantaire are running the face painting station. Cuties in love get together.
    -
    Courfeyrac is grinning and signs something Feuilly doesn’t understand. “Will you…?” Will they what?
    Courfeyrac chuckles and it’s the best sound in the world. He brings out his phone and Feuilly follows suit, nearly exploding when they receive his text message. “Will you go out with me? Be my non-binary dating person?”
