FIC PIMP: these things take time

these things take time by sonhoedesrazao:

Alright, this is an Enjorlas / Grantaire fic that I’ve absolutely fallen in love with and must pimp to the best of my ability. The official summary is:

He’s always wary of making assumptions; even more so when Grantaire is concerned. He knows he’s not the easiest person to deal with. People either like him or can’t stand him, and it’s easy to respond to those reactions, but Grantaire—Grantaire is hostile and mocking, Grantaire scorns his beliefs, and Grantaire stays.

But I would tell you to read it because:

IDK where to even begin with my love of it. The first line is one of the best I’ve seen in a long time, and I can just see that happening - “I’m in love,” Courfeyrac announces, letting himself in. “And someone stole my waffles!”.And everyone’s reactions to this announcement are brilliant, particularly E’s.

I also love how E isn’t just a 1-sided revolutionary. He’s got real depth of feeling and character here. And don’t even get me started on R, some of the descriptions of whom are just to die for - He doesn’t know how to look around him and be optimistic. - It’s strange to see Grantaire so still, him whom Enjolras always sees moving, drinking, joking; he who is loud and quick, funny and smart when he wants to be, cruel and precise when he doesn’t. - especially considering the last came from E himself.

This is an utterly brilliant read.

So go, read it, and so the author some love. It’s well worth the time.

I'm not sure I've seen you single out a fic for pimping before, so I definitely have to check this out!
I have, just not in a while. Some DW and AOS ones I know I have... but, again, not in a long time.
