[Round 6: No vacancy]Official rules/FAQ/Page-A-Mod post is there for reference, but you know how it works by now. Be nice, no kink-shaming, this is not the place to have it out with people who are Wrong On The Internet, detailed lists of kinks in headers are good, no RPF except for historical figures. Link to your fills (complete or incomplete) on the Fill Post. NKMWA = No Kink Meme Warnings Apply; see rules post for details. Mods reserve the right to enforce reasonable standards of conduct even if they are incapable of explicitly enumerating every possible way someone could act like an asshat online.

Mods are 10littlebullets, scuttlebuggy, and enjolrassy. If you have a question or suggestion, or see a thread going pear-shaped faster than the Revolution of 1830, don't hesitate to get in touch: leave a comment on the Rules/Page-A-Mod post, or PM any of us, or email 10littlebullets at 96belowthewave@gmail.com.

The previous round's moratorium on E/R woobification/vilification prompts is no longer in effect, but back-and-forth grudge-prompting will still get frozen if it starts to escalate.

Note on spam filtering: At the moment, LiveJournal is marking all comments with links in them as spam and they are being sent to quarantine. If your comment is caught by the spam filter, a mod will unscreen it within 24 hours, but it won't show up in email notifications to meme subscribers. For this reason, anyone linking to a fill on AO3 is encouraged to post other identifying info (title, author if applicable, and story ID--the number portion of the URL) instead of a full link for the time being. Same goes for Tumblr and YouTube links if you want to avoid the spam filter: username, title if applicable, video/post ID. If linking to another site, you might be able to evade the spam filter by writing out the domain name and separating it from the rest of the URL, but no guarantees.

Check in at Round 7!

"Grantaire," Jehan said and his lips were pale as he leans on the table. "Wake up you drunken sot," and he suited his words to actions as he shook his shoulder.

More in bafflement at what could have driven the generally restrained Jehan to such abuse, Grantaire condescended to open his eyes and even prop himself up on the table for a minute. "Jehan," he slurred, "not who I expected to see when I wake from a debauch of the highest order. Did you begin after I fell?"

"Be quiet and listen," Jehan said, knowing that if he didn't break into the conversation now, then Grantaire would begin one of his favourite monologues and they just didn't have time for anything of the sort. "It's Enjolras, and if you care nothing for the cause then perhaps you can care a little something for him. It's time."

Abruptly sobered Grantaire opened his eyes fully and fixed them on Jehan. "Oh," he breathed and a dull flush darkened his cheeks. "I had not expected this or dreamed of hoping but how could it be otherwise? Isaac leashed to the altar, I shall be, an uncomprehending sacrifice to godlike savagery, the broken body of Harmodius bent to terrible cause, Leda seized by savage embrace. I consent to it, how could I not? Enjolras needs me and I shall provide."

Jehan listened with increasing disbelief. "Do you have a bad case of syphilis?" he asked. "We're not asking you to let Enjolras fuck you. Or to fuck him. Where on earth would you get that idea? You're an artist aren't you? You used to study at least."

"Under the terrible hands of Gros," Grantaire said cautiously, "I learnt my trade passing well in truth until I grew tired of the disingenuous flirts of the paint against canvas, the sad mockery of truth rendered as falsehood on paper, apples and pears like none I had ever seen, and always in various stages of decomposition so that I wonder that any man captured in a picture would have anything to eat, could he move from frame to frame."

"Good enough for me," Jehan said dryly. "I need you to draw Patria," he continued. "Realistic as you can."

"Draw Patria?" Grantaire repeated dumbly. "But as what?"

"Marianne? A noble man wreathed in a tricolour? A country? I don't care Grantaire. Draw what Patria means and do it quickly before the ghastly heat takes Enjolras from us," and seeing that Grantaire wasn't going to start until he got some sort of straight answer, he condescended to explain. "It's Enjolras's time and he has indeed bonded to something. Something and not someone. He has devoted himself not just mind and soul to the concept of country to revolution but body as well, and unless he is sated then he shall die. If you draw something sufficient realistic then the closeness should save him."

Grasping the urgency at last, Grantaire fumbled for his coat. "Money," he said roughly, and Jehan passed him his own purse.

"Make it fast," were the last words directed after Grantaire's fleeing form, before Jehan retreated to tend his delirious friend.

Enjolras was feverish as he tossed back and forth on the bed. "My country," he said through dry lips, no moisture left to his mouth now after the heat burned him from the inside, shrivelled him from within, and Bahorel grasped him in his strong arms and conveyed him down the stairs until they were in the garden, where the closeness to the soil seemed to revive Enjolras somewhat as though the dirt had certain properties that relieved him. Everything else they had tried had had little to no effect at all, and all hopes rested on Grantaire now.

A couple of hours passed and Enjolras grew ever more desperate, and Combeferre volunteered to make him more comfortable by removing the now remarkably constricting breeches. Unfortunately he'd forgotten the cockade on his lapel and leant just a little too close resulting in him retreating dazed to wipe himself off. Given some temporary relief Enjolras seemed to brighten a little and Courfeyrac retreated to run down the street possessed of an idea. At the same time as Grantaire returned with a crudely drawn sketch of Liberty on the largest canvas he could buy, Courfeyrac returned with several tricolours crudely stitched together, and gingerly they put the canvas next to Enjolras and proceeded to cover him with the tricolour. It was anyone's guess what they would find when they removed the covering. A dead Enjolras...or a sated one.

"You know," Jehan said conversationally. "Your depiction of Liberty was a little bit like a man in a dress," and Grantaire shuffled his feet.

"Everyone is a critic," he muttered crossly, "besides it seems to be working doesn't it," and sure enough there was decided movement under the tricolour, and moans that were quite clearly no longer ones of pain. With one accord everyone turned and crept away, allowing love to be fulfiled on the lawn.

You are a perfect human being, author.

Thank you! Appreciated.

Re: soulbonds-and-heat-cycles AU 'For love of one's country' 1/2

This is a thing of beauty and a joy forever, and your Grantaire dialogue is solid gold.
