(Hogwarts AU) Courf you jerk. Trying to play matchmaker for Enjolras and Grantaire. (Also Courf is a hufflepuff chaser, probably captain.) Sixth year I think.
Just a reminder, amortentia is the infatuation potion, and it smells different to each person based on what attracts them. What does amortentia smell like to Enjolras?
snippet by darthtveitor:
The walk to the Sorting Hat at the end of the Great Hall seems to take hours. With every step, Enjolras can feel eyes on him, sizing him up, speculating, judging. At only eleven, he doesn’t know if he even exhibits any traits for any of the houses. The other boys and girls all come to a stop at the stool where the Hat sits, unassuming, and he sucks in a breath.
One by one, the new students are called and sorted into houses. Sometimes, the Hat only takes a few seconds before deciding, but for others, minutes pass before the Hat comes to a conclusion. It feels like hours before Enjolras is called. He trips on his robes in his haste to get on the stool. Every step he takes seems to echo loudly throughout the hall as all eyes follow him up the marble steps.
He takes a seat on the stool and the Hat is placed on his head, immediately falling over his eyes. He has to push it up so he can see, even if his immediate reaction is to pull it over his eyes again. His parents are gunning for Slytherin, and maybe he wants to uphold the family name, but he’d be happy with Ravenclaw. He’d be happy with any house. The shame he’d bring on his family if he were a squib would be humiliating.
“There is definitely wizard blood in you, no doubt about that,” the Hat says, as if he’s standing right inside his head. Enjolras jumps a little. “Quite a bit, actually… Long line of Wizards. And Slytherin, too, I see.”
He thinks the hat is done, and waits for the loud declaration of Slytherin to the Great Hall, but the Hat speaks up again. “No, no. You’re a tricky one. You’re certainly brave, loyal, hardworking, and have a quick wit. You’re also ambitious. You would do anything to get what you desire.”
Enjolras feels like the Hat has been talking for hours. It’s only been a few minutes in reality, but the Hat pauses, listening to his thoughts and feelings. It’s impossible not to think. How does the Hat even know this about him? As far as he knows, the Hat can’t tell the future. It’s a hat. A magical one, but still a hat.
“I see deep into your heart and mind,” the Hat answers. “And things are much more than they appear to be. Much like you, Enjolras. You have great potential, yes, but also the capability of being a force to be reckoned with. You will not be stopped.”
His heart is pounding in his ears. He’s not even sure what the Hat is talking about, but it’s silent for several long moments and Enjolras is convinced his heart is going to burst out of his chest.
“Slytherin!” the Hat cries out. The Slytherin table erupts in cheers and Enjolras removes the hat and makes his way over to his new home for the next seven years.
(Hogwarts AU) Little muggleborn Grantaire on his way to his first year at Hogwarts. He’s so excited because now he won’t be the outcast at school, like he was at muggle school where people were scared of him for making weird things happen. His parents were a little wary about getting him an owl since that was a little too wizardy for them to handle but they gave him a torti kitten at the train station. (suggestions for what to name the cat? Merlot the owl comes later when he’s older.) He’s got his wand out all ready for wizarding and he bought himself some candy off the trolly.
(Hogwarts AU) Grantaire passing Enjolras a wizard doodle in class (4th yearish?). I’m super jealous that wizards have animated drawings. And now I’m liking the headcanon that muggle born Grantaire discovered he had magic abilities because his drawings started to move when he was a kid.
I swear to fucking god les mis fandom
artists put time and effort into their art. I don’t know if you non-artists know this, but it can take 10+ hours over the course of a few days to finish a fully colored/shaded/etc drawing. it’s a LOT of work.
to have someone tear it down, say it’s wrong, or bad because it’s not YOUR headcanon, that’s shitty. don’t do that. if you don’t fucking like it, don’t reblog it. the artist CAN and WILL see. it’s easy to see tags now thanks to xkit. there’s a difference between constructive criticism and just saying “this isn’t what I believe to be right so it’s not that good”
NEWSFLASH: unless victor hugo rises from the grave and tells us what hogwarts houses each amis belongs to, WE’LL NEVER KNOW
the housing system is EXTREMELY flawed—hermione was a gryffindor even though she clearly could have been in ravenclaw. neville was in gryffindor even though he could have been hufflepuff. PERSONALITY TRAITS OVERLAP. IT’S NOT NECESSARILY IF SOMEONE IS MORE BRAVE THAN SMART OR MORE LOYAL THAN BRAVE. the sorting hat also takes personal preference into account.
so stop shitting on other people’s headcanons because no one is right or wrong
Hogwarts AU house harmony. Combeferre, Courfeyrac, Grantaire, and Enjolras messin around on the school grounds after class. Ferre’s like check out my sparkles. Enj’s tie is in his pocket cuz he doesn’t like to wear it. Grantaire is that wand in your pocket or are you just….nah it’s a wand.
I actually drew this before the comic, meaning this is actually my first hogwarts au pic I did, but I only just finished coloring it a month later. I decided to interrupt and make the comic first because I knew that people often argue over hogwarts houses and I thought explaining that the verse is about uniting the houses, because a student can have any and all of the traits of each house, was important so I didn’t start any fires with y’all. And in particular, I like my exr to be in green and red no matter the verse, even if they’re palette swapped. The law of complementary colors shall be obeyed.
I’d also like to mention how hard it was to draw four intertwined people oh my god. But look I did a background oooo gasp oh my. Quidditch rings in the distance.
general consensus seems to be that this is hard to watch [x]
(Hogwarts AU) Someone asked for Courf and Jehan so here, Hufflepuff kings with their pets. Courfeyrac is a prefect, captain of the quidditch team (chaser) and later, Head Boy, and has a Pygmy Puff because he has hardcore house pride and Puff is in the name. Then there’s Jehan, master of herbology and divination and owns a wild carnivorous plant of some sort.
I don’t know why the sunglasses but that’s how I imagined the picture so that’s how it happened. But Courf is half blood so he’d have some muggle things.
(Hogwarts AU) Grantaire looks into the Mirror of Erised and sees himself holding hands with Enjolras. Can’t join in. Sad. This is meant to be maybe a 4th or 5th year Grantaire.
Thank you to avagueambitioninyourerection for sending in the idea!
(Hogwarts AU) Grantaire gets a howler from Enjolras over the summer. Grantaire is like uh it’s nice to hear back from you, Enjolras?
And his owl is so proud of himself, look at me I delivered you a letter aren’t you so happy?
This is probably between 6th and 7th year since I see them getting together around 6th yearish.
