Enjolras plays violin. A violinist will lead any ensemble they’re in. Their melodies can soar above human reach, be idealistic and supernatural, but strong and powerful at the same time. Enjolras is the chief of the Friends, a violin will be the chief of an ensemble.
Combeferre plays cello. A cello more often than not will have a continuo bassline in baroque and classical ensembles, sometimes a tune. They’re keep everyone in time, and compliment and guide the other players. Their sound is less cutting than a violin’s, it’s softer, gentler. Combeferre is the guide of the Friends, a cello will guide an ensemble.
Courfeyrac plays viola. Violas are at the heart of an ensemble. Their sound is gorgeous (ok, I’m biased because I’m a violist, but hear me out), rich, warm and inviting. They can join with the cellos in its continuo, join with the violin in its melody, or do its own thing altogether. Courfeyrac is the centre of the Friends, a viola will the be the centre of an ensemble.
That sufficient reason for you, ‘nonny?
I’ve seen so many Instrument Headcanons, but I can only rarely follow the reasoning behind them! This explains a lot about some of the most common ones I’ve run across, thank you!

WHAT A CUTE OLD MAN AW LOOK AT HIS FACE
EXCEPT THIS ISNT JUST A FUNNY HAHA SILLY HEADLINE GUYS
this is really important and is a really great program that teaches skills to inmates and allows them to basically receive group therapy while they are simultaneously learning a craft
IT IS ALSO REALLY RADICAL BECAUSE IT BREAKS NOT ONLY THE STEREOTYPE THAT INMATES ARE INCAPABLE OF BEING DECENT HUMAN BEINGS WHO CAN TALK OUT THEIR ISSUES AND HEAL AND BE FUNCTIONING MEMBERS OF SOCIETY BUT IT ALSO SHOWS THAT TRADITIONALLY GENDERED HOBBIES LIKE KNITTING ARENT JUST “FOR WOMEN” AND ARE ENJOYABLE FOR EVERYONE.
here is an from the above article
They started by knitting comfort dolls, which they gave to children removed from their homes because of domestic issues. Then they moved on to hats for kids at the inner-city elementary school many of the prisoners attended, Zwerling says. “If you look at them, they’re covered with tattoos, they’re rough looking, and many of the young guys don’t have all their teeth,” she says. “But it doesn’t feel rough. They’re very respectful and grateful and very happy to knit.”
THEY KNIT COMFORT ITEMS FOR ABUSED KIDS. THEY KNIT HATS FOR INNER-CITY CHILDREN.
this is a good program and i really hope that people actually look into it rather than just posting the headline and a silly image attached ok

Seriously go read that article.
OOOOoooh okay story time!
So I went to The Center For Success and Independence about a year ago. This is basically a teen ‘rehab’ for either behavioral, drug, sex, or suicidal behavior.
Now, there are about 20 something TEENAGE GIRLS living in a small space with each other, and each of us are going through our own treatment plan.
You wanna know the only thing that kept us sane? Crochet.
Not only is it therapeutic and a good way to just think to yourself and get lost in something when you’re mad or something, but it’s great when you want to bond with some of the people there.
And this my friends is why I love crafts.
