Enjolras in Love???

Postby Miz Thierry » Sun Jan 22, 2012 5:32 pm

Mme Feuilly and I watched Fiddler on the Roof last night. We both felt that Perchik had all the romantic panache of an Enjie, if he had ever been so inclined. I was just wondering what other people thought.

The following is an exerpt from Fiddler on the Roof.

Hodel, there's a question...

A question I... I wish to discuss with you.


It's a political question.

What is it?

The question of


Is this a political question?

Well, yes.

Yes, everything's political.

Like everything else,

the relationship between a man and a woman has a socioeconomic base.

Marriage must be founded on mutual beliefs.

A common attitude and philosophy towards society.

And affection?

Well, yes, of course.

That is also necessary.

Such a relationship can have positive social values.

When two people face the world with unity and solidarity...

And affection?

Yes, that is an important element!

At any rate, I

I personally am in favour of such a socioeconomic relationship.

I think

you are asking me to marry you.


in a theoretical sense,... yes.

I am.

I think, if Enjy were to propose, this would be how he would do it. However, Combeferre and, even more so, Jehan, seem to be the people to focus on this more as this is kinda their area of expertise. It's a great idea and I'm sure that people would disagree with me, but I feel that Enjy feels he doesn't have time for this type of politics as, to him, it would only be a distraction.
At the end of the day, I dreamed a dream that whenever I was on my own in my life, I would hear the people sing with a heart full of love under the stars. Les Mis, I pledge allegiance to you.

Found this thread just now....and YES, that is how I think Enjolras would (if he was in a bizarre AU) propose to someone.

It's very pragmatic, a little dry but does get the point across.

Definitely more of a Combeferre/Jehan-type approach. If Enjolras really wanted to, he would be more bold.
