And by the way, if there is not a drabble written about Combeferre and a chicken by the end of the day, I’ll be sorely disappointed in you, fandom.
Forget every single action he took (Le Cabuc, the acid, the sergeant), but do words still hold any meaning?
Enjolras was described as ‘virile’ in the book.
They’ll just bring up how his cheeks were likened to a little girl’s and the one descriptor of having a woman’s face. Because obviously having some physical features more feminine than masculine must mean he’s feminine in everything. But not just feminine, like they do with Jehan while also stressing how badass he is; Enjolras has to be HYPER-feminine. Always small and meek and face poised for a Maybelline ad, with eyes submissively turned down and red mouth parted, and very long flowing hair from a shampoo commercial. He must shrink in the shadow of masculine He-Men beside him, and near faint at their physique like a woman ogling a construction worker in a Coke commercial. He’s always mistaken for a woman in a derogatory fashion and cannot defend his own honor—another manly Ami must do that for him because Enjolras could not scare a rabbit.
Are you frothing blood like i am yet?
…In every fandom I have ever looked into there were popular misinterpretations like this, but this has to be one of the most silly. In my mind at least it’s almost inconsequential if Enjolras looks manly or girly, there seems to be this cold, hard, you-shall-not-mess-with-me kind of air about him and… he’s just so detached from the material world he could BE a girl (if the time period allowed for it) for all that matters, it still wouldn’t make him submissive or soft.
I wish that there was a socially acceptable way to say, “I’m having a bad mental health day and need you to pay attention to me,” without alienating everyone.
or: “I’m having a bad mental health day and need to be on my own for a while so please don’t be mad if I cancel our plans on short notice.”

The Rue de la Chanvrerie was not more than a gunshot long. Bossuet improvised a speaking-trumpet from his two hands placed around his mouth, and shouted:
"Courfeyrac! Courfeyrac! Hohee!"
Courfeyrac heard the shout, caught sight of Bossuet, and advanced a few paces into the Rue de la Chanvrerie, shouting: “What do you want?” which crossed a “Where are you going?”
"To make a barricade," replied Courfeyrac.
"Well, here! This is a good place! Make it here!"
"That’s true, Aigle," said Courfeyrac.
And at a signal from Courfeyrac, the mob flung themselves into the Rue de la Chanvrerie.
