I just ate a box of buttery toffee Crunch n Much and a few Swedish Fish for dinner.
…I’m suddenly reminded of those Passovers in college when I lived off of mashed potatoes and fruit salad for 8 days.

one time in broadway’s lion king the actor playing simba was sick and so were his understudies so they literally called the lead in aida a few blocks away who played simba to come and fill in even though he hadnt played simba in YEARS and he did and the audience never knew and theatre is incredible
Enjolras starts to be a really prominent politician very quickly after he leaves university, so Grantaire constantly gets dragged into his limelight as his boyfriend and the more famous Enjolras gets, the more attention the media pay to Grantaire and suddenly everyone’s interested in his art and his past and it kind of freaks him out.
And eventually Enjolras is looking like a prime candidate for President and everyone wants Grantaire on their chat shows and photo shoots and interviews for magazine features, not least because he’s boyfriend not girlfriend and that’s progress in the politics world.
He’s a little bit terrified at first, but goes along with most of it and as it turns out, the public love him for being down to earth and witty and Grantaire’s just kind of going /what/ because the whole country is interested in his life and he and Enjolras are even followed internationally, and everyone wants him on their show and in their magazine and he can’t possibly be this interesting.
Actually, he’s a PR dream, as he tells funny stories and answers the inevitable questions about their sex life and how much they famously argue and the homophobic hate mail they’ve had by hinting just enough to satisfy but without ever revealing anything that would make people lose even an ounce of respect for Enjolras. He is happy to answer the insatiable public demand to know all about their romance and gives a dryly amusing normal person’s perspective on trying to live life at the centre of national politics.
But then talk turns to the possibility of him becoming France’s First Gentleman, and people do some digging and the press is questioning whether he’s suitable, whether this is the man who should be sharing the President’s bed, because he’s always struggled with drink and he sometimes used to dance on tables in clubs for the money shoved in his back pocket and he’s taken some hard drugs in his time, but when some underling in Enjolras’s office makes a snarky remark about it Enjolras has an absolute fit and declares that anyone who doesn’t support Grantaire alongside him can leave, right that minute, he won’t have them.
And when Grantaire goes on his next chat show, he’s already expecting to be accusingly questioned about the drugs allegations and other disreputable parts of his past that the press have ferreted out and made into headlines, but instead of denying anything he just shrugs with a little smile and says it’s probably all true, but they don’t have to worry that he’ll relapse because he has Enjolras now, and that’s better than any drug.
And everyone in the office thinks that Grantaire killed Enjolras’s chances by basically confirming that he chooses to share his life with someone with such a screwed up past and who, even though he’s much better now, doesn’t have the healthiest mental state.
But the public love it. They adore how real and raw it is and how human it makes these famous people seem, and decide that the whole episode is the most romantic thing in politics ever when the news comes out that Enjolras threw everyone off his team who didn’t think Grantaire was good enough, and support rockets even higher.
And when Enjolras wins and the first thing he does is kiss Grantaire, it’s the photographs of that moment that are plastered over the covers of every French newspaper the following day with exultant headlines.
