The Defence of Jean-Jacques by ColonelDespard The Defence of Jean-Jacques by ColonelDespard
'Or chance decreed that Marius should traverse Rue Jean-Jacques Rousseau between Enjolras and Courfeyrac.

Courfeyrac took his arm:--

"Pay attention. This is the Rue Platriere, now called Rue Jean-Jacques Rousseau, on account of a singular household which lived in it sixty years ago. This consisted of Jean-Jacques and Therese. From time to time, little beings were born there. Therese gave birth to them, Jean-Jacques represented them as foundlings."

And Enjolras addressed Courfeyrac roughly:--

"Silence in the presence of Jean-Jacques! I admire that man. He denied his own children, that may be; but he adopted the people."' - Victor Hugo, Les Miserables

Oh, Courfeyrac - you wind-up merchant! And how pleased he must have been with himself for getting a rise out of Enjolras.

Not a particularly good work...may move it to scraps. And I think Enjolras would kill me for dressing him like he gets his fashion out of the 1820s GQ.

Ah, this made me smile. You're really going to make me read that book, aren't you? Because this is awesome, and all three expressions are making me grin right now.

...HAHAHAH xDDDD
Your artwork always leaves me speechless. Really. You make me want to do some nice artwork of the Frenchboys instead of my little cartoon doodles that are always making fun of them in one way or another.
BUT- It's Marius- I think it's impossible to see him and not make fun of him.

Speaking of Pontmercy-chan, poor thing, he looks so confused. Love Courfeyrac's expression, too!

Oh, absolutely. Someone on Abaisse once opined that Courfeyrac must have befriended Marius for the entertainment value. Can't think of any other reason he'd keep him around!

Don't dismiss your "doodles" - we love 'em! But, of course, more lovely Frenchboys will never go astray as subject matter...

Enjolras's face makes me giggle! And poor Marius, sandwiched between them. Hehe.

Very Annoyed Enjolras! Although I'm sure he's been wound up by Courfeyrac before, so this can't be a new experience for him. Unlike what you see in fanfic, Brick!Enjolras doesn't really lose his cool with his friends often at all - from memory, this is pretty much the only instance. Bossuet can make comments about his lack of a love-life and he doesn't respond, but Supreme Being Forbid that anyone should take a swipe and Jean-Jacques.
