world war i medic joly trying to stop the bleeding on bossuet after he went over the top and getting sniped and bossuet slowly bleeding out as his best friend lays dead on top of him
world war i grantaire not having a gas mask that covers his entire face and as a result begins to lose his vision. he watches the trenches and the whole rest of the world begin to fade away into the sounds of bullet fire and bloodshed. he is unable to make it in time before enjolras is shot down in the disarray and can only feel the warm blood splatter across his face and the lifeless corpse in his arms.
where he blindfolds himself so people can’t see his blue eyes slowly fog and he pretends he is intentionally keeping himself in the dark. where he only survives due to the pity others give him as he struggles to even live because all of his friends were lost in the firefight

marius who has been in the trenches for far too long and the only thing that keeps a smile on his face is courfeyrac who tries to make the most of their situation. he then gets to watch as his best friend is gunned down by german soldiers when courfeyrac tries to pull someone from no-man’s land and screams his name until he’s hoarse. he is eventually saved by valjean who has been wounded in the fight and before passing gives marius a letter to give to his daughter who awaits him back at him
it’s marius who cannot shake seeing everyone he cares for fall to bullet fire as he struggles to find the right address. it’s here he meets cosette who can only fall into his arms after finding out the news and he falls right back into a fit of tears which eventually unravels into nightmares and cold sweats in the dead middle of the night (◕‿◕✿)
little jean prouvaire who wants to fight for his country and protect the people he loves
little jean prouvaire who lies about his age to get into the army
little jean prouvaire who speaks enough german to know the other side is offering peace for a day of christmas celebration and helps translate between sides
little jean prouvaire who defies his commanding officers and wants to continue the peace so goes over the top without a gun only to be shot down by german soldiers who were coerced by equally irate officers, and war starts again
little jean prouvaire dying on december 26, and his body too far into no mans land that it’s months before it’s retrieved
little jean prouvaire still wasn’t of age when he died (⊙ヮ⊙)
Enjolras’s parents never showed any tactile affection to their son. They loved him, sure, but they were not tactile people at all and so there was no hugging or kissing or ruffling hair. Maybe his father patted his cheek when he was proud, and maybe his mother caressed his forehead when he was sick but that was it. Combeferre held his hand, sometimes, when they were worried or sad or really excited but that’s it, not because Combeferre wasn’t willing to show physical affection, it’s just that Enjolras was always awkward with physical touches and so he assumed that he wasn’t a tactile person either.
Even Courfeyrac, after a few hugs where Enjolras just went all stiff with no idea of what to do, thought that he was just making his friend uncomfortable and offered all of his affection in an other form instead. Same for the rest of les Amis.
Except Enjolras is a tactile person, he just doesn’t realize it himself because he never had it properly and he has no idea how to ask or to act upon his needs (because of course it’s ridiculous, “stop having stupid cravings body, we have a world to change!”). So he holds hands sometimes with his best friends, and patted the other Les Amis’s shoulder and that’s it.
But then there’s Grantaire, and one day Grantaire’s really drunk (surprise) and he just clings to Enjolras who was elected to bring him home. And Enjolras is all stiff at first but Grantaire doesn’t let go and he just begins to relax into the sort-of-hug until they both realize that Enjolras is now clinging as much as Grantaire. Grantaire has an epiphany after that, and he begins, very slowly, very carefully, to touch Enjolras more.
And les Amis are a bit suspicious because they’re afraid Grantaire is trying to make Enjolras uncomfortable on a whole new level which wouldn’t be acceptable at all, friend or not, but they realize little by little that Enjolras welcomes the touches more and more, until one day after a very successful action, he just goes to Grantaire and hugs him fiercely, burying his head into his neck and all.
(and then maybe he cries just a little because this is what he’s been missing all those years and god it feels so good.
and the emotions are even stronger when they have sex for the first time later that night)
