Ok, so I might support this one a tiny bit.

But still, UP TEAM TOP.

I guess that has to do with being neutral? But what fandom is that from?

It is from everything basically but it was popularized by 'Twilight'.

...don't ask.

Yes, Twilight is what I was referring to... I like to think of corrupted versions of anything Twilight :twisted:

It was suggested this conversation belonged here. :lol:

[01:02:20] Marianne: "[...] it's Planck's constant over lambda, lambda is on the BOTTOM..." and we simultaneously cracked up.
[01:02:31] Jenn: ahahahaha
[01:02:37] Jenn: (justlikeenjolras)
[01:02:43] Marianne: (TOP)
[01:02:46] Jenn: (bottom)
[01:03:07] Jenn: although with enjolras, just apply a reciprocal 'ferre and he changes. :D
[01:03:10] Marianne: (.........this is like the Les Mis Fandom Uncertainty Principle isn't it)
[01:03:36] Jenn: (*dies* the more precisely you know your figment's sexual orientation, the less precisely you know his favourite position?)
[01:03:42] Marianne: XDDDDD
[01:04:33] Marianne: also, it's possible to guess the probability that Enjolras will be top or bottom in a particular fic, but it is impossible to know until you read it?
[01:05:07] Jenn: so until you've read the fic, ENJOLRAS EXISTS IN A SUPERPOSITION OF STATES INCLUDING TOP, BOTTOM, NEITHER TOP OR BOTTOM, AND BOTH TOP AND BOTTOM.
[01:05:43] Marianne: "GUYS WE FINALLY ANSWERED IT ONCE AND FOR ALL"
[01:05:49] Marianne: "BUT YOU'RE NOT GOING TO LIKE THE ANSWER"
[01:05:12] Jenn: quantum physics prevails again!
[01:05:14] Marianne: YEP
[01:05:26] Marianne: this whole conversation needs to go on the Very Important Question thread.
[01:05:43] Marianne: "GUYS WE FINALLY ANSWERED IT ONCE AND FOR ALL"
[01:05:49] Marianne: "BUT YOU'RE NOT GOING TO LIKE THE ANSWER"
[01:08:22] Marianne: .................so wait does this mean enjolras is a quark
[01:08:42] Jenn: and if he is, up? down? top? bottom? charm? strange?
[01:08:52] Marianne: TOP
[01:09:06] Jenn: BOTTOM!
[01:09:31] Marianne: lol I am just imagining quantum physics according to Hugo: charm quarks and terrible quarks!
[01:10:06] Marianne: abyss quarks and horizon quarks!


...yes, we went there. :D

At the risk of thread derailment, one of my favourite images (and one I want on a t-shirt):

I can think of variations on this in accordance with the Enjolraic Quantum Physics described above, but...erm....most are not exactly PG.

....neither is this thread, Despard. :lol: We're talking about how Enjolras likes it in bed, after all!

I've thought about this perhaps too much; I'm happy to see I'm not the only one XD

I imagine him as being more of a top, although I suppose I'm going off verbal and physical cues, particularly in the musical, that fit snugly into stereotypes of the passive/active roles in gay male relationships. Bad Alex! Bad! Don't put people in boxes!

I think he could certainly be persuaded to bottom (as most tops I've encountered can... muahahaha), and I think MmeJavert's "Saint's Day" proved that point quite well indeed :lol:

Actually I wrote the sex part of that ambiguously on purpose, so you can guess which of them switches for the other. ;) This is not to say that I'm denying Enjolras was the top-switching-to-bottom--I'm merely saying that, until the rest of the epic that fic belongs in gets written, I'm happy to keep it ambiguous. Heeee.
