The Self-Unseeing - small_but_mighty - Les Misérables - All Media Types [Archive of Our Own]
Working as a librarian involves little effort or responsibility according to Grantaire. Therefore, it suits him perfectly.

However, this is all disrupted when an impatient stranger arrives at his desk with no memory of his past and only a handwritten list of non-events and a bandage over his left eye as clues.

And as if that wasn't weird enough, the stranger has an uncanny ability to predict what will happen next.

Trials and Tribulations - Aoida_blue - Multifandom [Archive of Our Own]
Dick had many, many faults. The worst three had to be the chatter (the never ending, never stopping chatter), his sheer-bloody minded persistance and of course, the belief in the non-existent.

Like, say, Dick's belief that all the fights Jason and he had over the years was just foreplay.

Yeah. No.

The Stars on the Tip of Your Tongue [Fireblazie]
“I’ve asked you all here today to discuss something of the utmost importance,” he begins, and Grantaire sinks further down in his seat. It’s stuff he’s heard Enjolras talk about before—he’s not exactly the quiet type—equal rights for magical creatures: the leprechauns, goblins, banshees, vampires, Veelas, everyone, even the—

“—werewolves,” Enjolras concludes, and Grantaire very carefully does not flinch.

I ain’t scared of the fall (I’ve hit the ground before) - Symbolic - Les Misérables - All Media Types [Archive of Our Own]
Grantaire is just about to usher him out, because the room is starting to smell like Enjolras, and he shouldn’t be reacting so viscerally to that fact, he barely knows this boy, still doesn’t even know if he’s gay, when his eye falls on his open sketchbook. The preliminary sketches for Grantaire’s collection are still there, splashed across the page, and Grantaire suddenly has an idea. “If you really – if you really want to make it up to me, there is something you can do.”

Enjolras looks like Grantaire’s offered him a lifeline – he obviously doesn’t like being wrong, obviously is never in the wrong, doesn’t know how to behave. “What is it?” he asks slightly breathlessly.

“I want you to model for my collection,” Grantaire says.

 (OR: Grantaire and Montparnasse are studying menswear at art school, Enjolras is the non-identical twin Montparnasse never mentioned, and everything in Grantaire's life goes to shit pretty quickly.)

Life is Only Moments - Raeldaza - Les Misérables - All Media Types [Archive of Our Own]
There’s enough moments to create a montage, snapshots of all the 'maybe' and ‘what if’ moments of the past two decades - moments that existed, and kept existing, but kept leading to nothing.

Or, the one where Grantaire and Enjolras have been best friends for their entire lives, and no one is surprised where they end up, not even them.

You Dance Dreams - lady_ragnell - Les Misérables - All Media Types [Archive of Our Own]
For most of college, Grantaire was hopeless over Enjolras, and everyone but Enjolras knew it. Now he’s worked to get over his crush, and for the most part, he's fine. When Combeferre asks him to choreograph and dance in the Midsummer Night’s Dream-inspired opera he composed as his senior thesis, Grantaire says yes, even though he’s cast opposite Enjolras, as Puck to his Oberon. The chance to dance is worth the potential problems, and he'll have his friends as a buffer.

He doesn't count on long hours of practicing and choreographing and talking together, while they try to figure each other and their futures out. As much as he tries to avoid it, it seems inevitable that he falls for Enjolras again, and this time it isn't a crush.

let this road be mine - myrmidryad - Les Misérables - All Media Types [Archive of Our Own]
Enjan has no memory of his childhood other than a simple phrase - together in Paris. When he leaves the orphanage he's grown up in and goes to St. Petersburg, he meets three men who are willing to take him to where he wants to go on the condition that he at least consider the possibility that he might actually be Russian nobility.

Find Out What I'm Feeling - lady_ragnell
When Marius's girlfriend Cosette writes an article about Enjolras's campaign for a seat in the state House of Representatives (not to mention his attempts to start a new political party) and mistakenly mentions Grantaire as his boyfriend, Enjolras ends up pretending to date him in the media storm that follows.

He's not sure why Grantaire says yes, but he's starting to want to find out.

[I LOVE political!aus; the campaign ones, the assasination ones, the presidential ones, give it to me!!!]

Silence is the Speech of Love
Grantaire's life has a pattern: he pays his respects to Aphrodite, he goes to work, he loves Enjolras and provokes him because he can't bring himself to do otherwise. That seems unlikely to change, at least until Enjolras speaks out against the gods and ends up cursed. Grantaire does his best to help him, but it turns out it's just as hard to love Enjolras up close as it is from afar.

In the End We Have Each Other - samyazaz
Enjolras has spent pretty much the entire bus ride to the Musain trying to predict how this will go, but the thing that surprises him isn't that Combeferre isn't the first to notice, or that Joly doesn't start spouting something about infant mortality rates and immediately demand that everybody bathe in Purell. No, what startles Enjolras the most is that he manages approximately half a step through the door into the back room where they all meet before Grantaire rattles his glass down on the table in the back that he's taken for his own and drawls, "Is there something you forgot to tell us, Apollo?"

That silences the room, predictably enough. Everyone breaks off their conversations and swivels to stare at him. At him, and at the baby carrier that he's got hooked over one arm.

philia - flybbfly - Multifandom [Archive of Our Own]
The ABC is a social justice group at Grantaire's university. Grantaire stumbles into the group by accident, only to find that the president is someone he's met before.

Warnings: lots of drinking; lots of recreational drug use—mostly marijuana and ad(h)d meds, though I'll warn if any chapter includes others; vague allusions to depression; generally very anxious characters; pretensions abound, but you probably got that from the title.

Along For the Ride - idratherhaveyou - Captive Prince - C. S. Pacat [Archive of Our Own]
“I’m perfectly aware that you can both hear me and talk. Would you mind doing both at the same time for a moment?”

That shocked Damen out of his stupor. He flicked his gaze to Nikandros, who was busy trying not to laugh. “Yes, sure. I can do that. Only for a moment, though,” Damen finally managed.

A flicker of a barbed smile appeared on Laurent’s face. “Impressive,” he quipped. And then, “I heard you in class, talking about your road trip. I’d like to come along. Only as far as California, mind you. I have no way to get there alone, but I have family I need to see.”

Literally just a road trip au. Damen lets a stranger (Laurent) hitch a ride down to California with him.

The Lonely Sea and Sky - samyazaz - Les Misérables - All Media Types [Archive of Our Own]
Grantaire once swore that he'd never set foot on the shore so long as there was a drop of ocean left to swim in, but when his fellow selkies start going missing, he sets aside his own distaste for the people of the land in order to come up and find out what's happened to them. He doesn't account for meeting Enjolras, however, or his passionate group of friends who are very concerned about the dwindling population of the local "seals", and the poaching that they're sure is taking place. When Enjolras seizes upon Grantaire's pelt as his prime piece of evidence, Grantaire has to figure out how to get it back before it's too late, and he ends up trapped on land forever.
