    Summary

    As one of the three, the inheritors of the Titans, his mother and everyone else had told him that Hades did not deign to gift his presence. He was a god among gods, and busy ruling a realm. Now he is busy gathering smaller shades close around his cloak, guiding. Leading.
    Here he is, a greeting to just another batch of the wretched. Grantaire thinks of him in the clouds, a bead of ambrosia sliding down the perfect column of his throat as he throws his golden head back, grins at Zeus and Poseidon as one.
    He listens, he sees, he remembers. His fingers itch to drip with color. His dust-dead heart gives one shaking, rasping beat.

    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.’

    Summary

    “It’s time,” Courfeyrac announces with gravitas when Pontmercy doesn’t immediately inquire as to what has him feeling so down, “We’re being evicted.”

    Too startled to finish properly chewing his cereal, Marius Pontmercy spills some milk onto his pajamas. The beloved jeans couch is mercifully spared, narrowly averting a disaster of epic proportions. “I don’t even live here, really.”

    a.k.a. sometimes family is you, your best friend and his eight friends you move into the house your dead father left you with.

    Summary

    On a hot summer's day in 1832, Enjolras, alone on the barricades and staring down the barrel of far too many muskets, makes the coward's choice. He falls backwards through an open window, eyes clenched shut.

    On a hot summer's day in 2019, Grantaire is walking home from work when he bumps into some guy in a fucking waistcoat, of all things.

     

    AKA, the time travel AU, featuring cultural differences, Enjolras learning how to have friends, and Grantaire trying his fucking best.
