god, but just imagine the things you’d hear living next door to Grantaire, Joly and Bossuet.
like, you wake up in the middle of the night to hear Joly warbling “the leg bone’s connected to the knee bone and the knee bones connected to the thigh bone-“
through out the day, you grow used to hearing the sounds of shouting or screaming, then huge crashes and eventually work out that it isn’t actually caused by small earthquakes but by Bossuet tripping over his own feet constantly.
sometimes you hear Joly and Bossuet leave for work and there’s a couple of moments of silence before Grantaire puts on Lana Del Ray at the loudest possible volume.
but those are the relatively normal sounds because some days you can faintly hear Joly and Grantaire acting out all of the romantic scenes from Titanic.
you hear Grantaire mockingly reading Enjolras’ speeches in the voice of Miss Piggy from the muppets, flicking his hair and pretending to be him.
you hear Bossuet trying to start a pigeon orchestra with the birds nesting outside his window.
you hear the rest of the Amis coming over for dramatic poetry readings, loud arguments about very complicated politics and kareoke nights (the Spice Girls and Pink seem to be favourites)
