Theirs is gravitational attraction.
- Part 1 of and love was a binary star—
He should speak to Grantaire, but for the first time in his life, Enjolras does not know what to say. I'm sorry is not sufficient. This is a cruel twist of fate for Grantaire. Enjolras knows that Grantaire loves as freely as Enjolras does, but while Enjolras loves broadly, Grantaire loves in the specific. It is cruel for their lives to be combined. Grantaire should love someone who can return it without disaster.
Grantaire's love has always been tinged with despair, Enjolras's with hope. But there is nothing to be hoped for here. He understands now what force draws him towards Grantaire, and what force pulls him back. He knows there is no cure, no help that can be had. He is to be permanently off-balance. As his body seeks to love Grantaire, the earth draws him back, reminding him of the future and the work that remains to be done. His will to live is stronger than his will to meld. And yet, it is still agony, being torn between separate desires.
For the first time in his life, Enjolras understands Grantaire and why he chooses not to believe.
oh my gosh
