There’s something I’m missing. Something really close, staring me right in the face and I can’t see it. Rose would know. A friend of mine, Rose. Right now, she’d say exactly the right thing.
I love that he’s all like at the camera
notes: idk? this is really meta and non-linear and disillusioned!enjolras and contemplative!éponine and i just don’t know anymore, the fic war has done terrible things to me???
p.s. title and chapter headings taken from the song by lydia, which i highly recommend to everyone!
it’s in your blood
I can’t stay over you. It seems we drive forever but can never get away from here.
After him, every boy she met was someone else. So it was always someone else’s smile, someone else’s scent, the feel of someone else’s arms around her on the couch, or on the bed, in a tangle of blankets, in dark rooms where desire rose into the air like static before crumbling gently, falling onto her skin, covering her in soft kisses and drawn-out sighs.
It hits Enjolras like a brick and quite honestly, he doesn’t like it one bit. There’s something about her - the way she argues or cares too much or even the way she ties her hair up during one too many late nights at the meetings. Every single thing he sees he is attracted to and it’s rather distracting when her eyes sparkle and he stumbles over words that he’d recited perfectly before her presence was made known.
He’s in love with Eponine and she barely gives him her attention unless she’s teasing.
title: the start of every sleepless night
pairing: enjolras x éponine
trigger warnings: character death, car accident (mentioned)
author’s note: this is not the death you asked for. i don’t know why, but i couldn’t do the shooting. i ended up making it a car accident. also, you should know that this prompt broke me. i am never going to be okay again. so that’s fun. also, this is honestly not very good, but i needed to get cracking on these prompts and believe it or not, this is the least traumatic of the ones i have.
he realizes he wants to marry her on christmas day.
it’s their second christmas as a couple, but the first one they’ve spent together, as a family, in the apartment they share with gavroche and azelma. he’s never had to decorate his own place for christmas before—when he was living with combeferre, they just threw a string of lights on the mantelpiece and called it done—and éponine and her siblings haven’t been able to celebrate a real christmas in years, so the four of them decide to go all out. the tree is enormous, a complete nightmare to get up the stairs and through the apartment door, but somehow he manages, and it’s worth it when he sees her eyes light up and hears gavroche’s excited shouts. even azelma cracks a smile and helps hang their newly-purchased ornaments from the branches.

Ah, sadly in the system it doesn’t work that way :(
You can work non-stop for months and then they give you a question and you think you’re answering fine, but if the answer you give doesn’t fit the mark scheme, you can do really badly. And if you run out of time you can literally drop like 1/4 of the marks for not answering a question. ;___;
I guess we’ll see <333
And omg I just got back
I’m a-gettin’ I’m a-gettin’
oh my god

I TRIED BB, I TRIED
I honestly don’t know how I did in any of them - I kept running out of time and having to miss out a question/section that was worth quite a lot, but tbh I went into every single exam expecting the worst possible questions ever, so was pleasantly surprised whenever I opened the booklet ;)
I’m done now so I can finally chill a bit :’)
AND I LOVE YOU TOO <3
IF YOU SAY THE WORD BATTERIES REALLY FAST IT SOUNDS LIKE YOURE SAYING “PARIS” IN A FRENCH ACCENT
