there was that time in chicagoverse where enjolras forgot to take his meds for several days and during a manic episode climbed into a ball pit to deliver a rousing speech against corporate greed. Much to his chagrin, Courfeyrac posted a video of the speech to youtube, and “Handsome Protest Boy Speechifies in Ball Pit” went viral.

"You’ve gotten 300,000 hits in a few hours, bro. And you were completely on point - poetically, even. It’s great," Courfeyrac said, not looking up from his phone while he managed his social media profile. 

"I was in a ball pit at McDonald’s,” Enjolras replied. 

"Are there better places to rail against capitalism? Other than banks, which you’re not allowed to enter as a condition of your release."

Enjolras glared down at Courfeyrac’s phone. It was less penetrating now that he’d gotten some sleep. Handsome Protest Boy was just coming to the end of his speech:

"Friends, the present hour in which I am addressing you, is a gloomy hour; but these are terrible purchases of the future. A revolution is a toll. Oh! the human race will be delivered, raised up, consoled! We affirm it on this ball pit. Whence should proceed that cry of love, if not from the heights of sacrifice? Oh my comrades, this is the point of junction, of those who think and of those who suffer; this ball pit is not made of paving-stones, nor of joists, nor of bits of iron; it is made of two heaps, a heap of ideas, and a heap of woes. Here misery meets the ideal."

Hey, says Courfeyrac, later. About the— I mean, I was just teasing, I didn’t— I didn’t hurt your feelings, did I?

No, says Enjolras.

All right, that’s good, says Courfeyrac, not entirely satisfied. It’s only when he’s shrugged on his coat and turned toward the door that he feels something jerk him back; Enjolras’ hand, a grip around his sleeve.

But for future reference, says Enjolras, I do have feelings.

…How can you even say that with a straight face, asks Courfeyrac.

three iconic Combeferre moments that nearly didn’t belong to combeferre at all.

1. “être libre, dit courfeyrac combeferre”

2. C’était Courfeyrac Combeferre, et voici ce qu’il chantait:

Si César m’avait donné
La gloire et la guerre,
Et qu’il me fallût quitter
L’amour de ma mère
Je dirais au grand César:
Reprends ton sceptre et ton char,
J’aime mieux ma mère, ô gué!
J’aime mieux ma mère.

L’accent tendre et farouche dont Courfeyrac Combeferre le chantait donnait à ce couplet une sorte de grandeur étrange. 

3.  Et Marius entendait Courfeyrac Combeferre répliquer:

—Tu as tort, Bahorel. La bourgeoisie aime la tragédie, et il faut laisser sur ce point la bourgeoisie tranquille. La tragédie à perruque a sa raison d’être, et je ne suis pas de ceux qui, de par Eschyle, lui contestent le droit d’exister. Il y a des ébauches dans la nature; il y a, dans la création, des parodies toutes faites; un bec qui n’est pas un bec, des ailes qui ne sont pas des ailes, des nageoires qui ne sont pas des nageoires, des pattes qui ne sont pas des pattes, un cri douloureux qui donne envie de rire, voilà le canard. Or, puisque la volaille existe à côté de l’oiseau, je ne vois pas pourquoi la tragédie classique n’existerait point en face de la tragédie antique.

What a charming Courfeyrac!  I really like the lettering here, and the posture— it looks like he’s leaning in for hugs. XD
