Awesome wikipedia pages, I hope the rest of them don't get altered. The person who altered the Enjolras one did so as they were "getting rid of a ridiculous amount of hyperbole relating to character's sexuality and attractiveness." apparently. :(

Hyperbole? Don't they know this is Victor Hugo we're talking about? There's no "hyperbole" in "Hugo"!

That said, I actually awoke this morning to thoughts like, "Wow, those bottom people have almost convinced me... I thought they'd never make sense, but I think I can see their point..." and then I was thinking about how we needed t-shirts with pictures of Enjolras that said, like, "Team Bottom" and "Team Top"...

This is why I should never be allowed near a computer or a journal or anything right after I wake up.

Screw her. I bet she's one of the people who only watch the musical, and then think they know eveyrthing about the subject.

Eppie-Sue - your note in the wikipedia article - that possibly don't say "Enjolras" in the musical because it's difficult to pronounce, makes me wonder why wouldn't they just change it if that was the case? It never occured to me that that was why, but if it was I'm surprised they didn't change it.

huh? I didn't write the part about "Enjolras" not being in the musical because it's difficult to pronounce... (I'm at some kind of a loss here, what are you referring to?)
I wrote the "He is also known as Teh Sex", "although it goes without saying that Enjolras looks a lot sexier in death", the whole "Enjolras - Top or Bottom" paragraph, I added the sentences after "Ohn-johl-RAHs" and I put in the GI EnJoelras stuff in the "Musical" section. That's all :)
(oh, and I added David Thaxton to the list of performers ;) but that's rather random.)

That was there already--I kinda forgot to get rid of it when I added the Prounouncing part. Though, I guess that point's null, now, isn't it?

HI GUYS I'M REVIVING THIS THREAD BECAUSE IT IS AWESOME.

As I have previously mentioned, my answer to this question is: bottom. But he's not submissive/uke/a blushing flower in bed. I generally think of him as pushy, and -- while I've never written any Enjolras smut fic *cough*-- if I did, he'd be pushy. It's not 'giving in' or what-have-you. (But I think with Grantaire he'd be top.)

And of course with some people he'd switch.

And of course there is such a thing as non-penetrative intercourse. :mrgreen:

I see your point, but I've always seen him more as the driving force, ie being on top. Besides, he doesn't seem the type to stay around long enough for a long, slow shag, and if he were on top, it'd be easier for him to leave if he wanted.

...how exactly do you leave in the middle of sex? Or did I misunderstand you?

No, no, not during the act obviously. That'd just be cruel/impossible/painful.

What I meant was He could make it quick and then nip off to write more inspiring speeches/build giant furniture walls.

I actually had lots of things to do tonight, but noooooo... someone had to revive this thread that I'd never seen before... and I had to read all the 40 pages :P

and then I was thinking about how we needed t-shirts with pictures of Enjolras that said, like, "Team Bottom" and "Team Top"...


Never, ever put that kind of idea into my mind...

(Am I allowed to do this? Are there underaged members on these boards?!?)

And FYI, I'm a 'Team Top'. All the way.

Um...so I LOVE your icons!! I still remain firm in my opinion: top!

EDIT: Can I just say that I love this fandom?
