    Summary

    When he turns to Will, the other has removed his glasses, eyes down as his fingers twitch lightly around the rims. A nervous gesture, like a cat that can sense another cat but can’t see it so there’s no point in yowling at it yet but it can feel it’s there and watching it and making it nervous. Or so Jack assumes. He doesn’t have cats.

    I have no excuse for this. In fact, blame Max.

    Summary

    If he was a religious man, Grantaire would say that when God was distributing football talent on this current generation of players, on the first day he looked at Germany. Then he looked at Brazil. Then he looked at a lot of other teams. And on the seventh day, God looked at France and said ‘you know what, I don’t really fancy it, it’s sunday and they already have croissants, I’m going back to bed.” Clearly, no one informed Enjolras of this.

    Or that one World Cup AU in which Enjolras is very good at kicking a ball around and Grantaire is very good at making footballers punch him in the face.

    Set during the 2018 World Cup.

    Summary

    “Did you know, my Lord,” the Scout persists, “that Alice’s Wonderland was not penned to represent some alternative fantasy realm? Rather, it is what a certain, close-minded Reverend assumed our world would devolve into should educated men—such as yourself— accept a reality of unreal mathematical concepts. But here, good Sir, is the rub: those abstract formulas have since become verified facts, and life as we know it has not gone topsy-turvy. Do you know what this means?” Earl prompts his teatime companion, willowed fingers flurrying like rosemary in a breeze.

    And yes. Said companion does. In the wake of candied corpses and circadian whispers, gristly murders and glimpsed monsters, a stack of mysterious calling cards and a Marquis with eyes like opals, Carlos knows exactly what this means.

    “It means we have been in Wonderland all along, and I’ve been none the wiser.”

    [Sequel to “Butterfly Weed”]

    Summary

    Ages from now, in a moment that is still numerous cases, several broken bones and countless memorable instants of breathless ecstasy away, local children will run through a garden overgrown with vegetation, flora running wild and untamed around skeletons of old beehives. But that is ages from now, in a moment that is still numerous blog posts, several broken tea cups and countless unusual love letters (read: intriguing corpses and breakfasts without bio-hazardous bits in them) away. So, let’s go back to now – there is a world being born, a world whose birth one wouldn’t want to miss.
    [...]
    It’s a new world, one that will be harder to destroy. Not because it is indestructible, nor because there won’t be challenges – oh, there will be (John wouldn’t have it any other way) – but because this time John knows, as does Sherlock, that, if handled with care, they allow each other to thrive.
    They aren’t each other’s doom. They are each other’s greenhouse effect.

    Summary

    It’s just that now, there is a connection where there was no connection before, a space between them that’s filled with each other, blending and merging until the dividing line between ‘Travis’ and ‘Wes’ is completely blurred.

    Summary

    Jean had almost turned to walk home when he saw him.

    The new kid.

    Standing alone at the empty bus stop.

    Now that he wasn't occupied with playground shenanigans, Jean could actually get a good look at the kid.
    He was shorter than him, with a dark mop of hair that covered his ears trimmed short underneath. His freckles seemed even more plentiful and dark up close, and he had a band-aid clinging to one of his knock-knees.

    Jean wasn’t going to talk to him.

    Really, he wasn’t.
    ....

    "A childhood friendship that grows and evolves into something more is one of the most beautiful, fragile, and painful things to watch, and I wouldn't miss a second of it."

    Summary

    Jim Kirk cut out his heart and placed it in a box on a shelf where no one could touch it. Until he meets Leonard McCoy.

     

    “Keep my heart?” He says, cradling the organ in blood sticky fingers.

    Len looks up, and smiles. “Keep your heart,” He says, and closes fingers over Jims hands, pulling Jim close to press a kiss to his cheek. “And let me have all of you,”

    Jim cuts his heart out of his box and places it in his chest.

    His skin stretches as his life begins anew.

    It feels like coming home.

    Summary

    It's something they started doing at the Academy.

     

    Jim is standing a few feet in front of his, pale face slightly flushed with the sickness of fever, wearing an old, too large Ole Miss hoody that covers his hands and hangs over Jims shoulder somewhat, drowning him in its grey folds of fabric and a pair of black clingy leggings that Len knows Jim wears when he's doing his yoga thingy routine, his thin rimmed glasses are slightly askew and he's clutching a large and raggedy, patched teddy bear in one of his arms. He looks terribly young, vulnerable and hurt and Len feels something in his heart give a tug.
     
    "Can you - will you - dance?" Jim stutters, voice hoarse and slow, with an edge that makes something in Len curdle like rotten milk at the edge Jims voice has to it making it known to Len that the kid has probably spent the majority of the day vomiting everything he doesn't eat up. The kids already too thin.

    Summary

    Mostly Hugo (as opposed to musical) timeline up through Javert's jump. He survives the jump and tries desperately to cling to his sense of duty and purpose, working as laborer by day and vigilante by night. When he gets injured and can no longer earn his pay, there is only one man he could turn to...

    Fill for kink meme prompt "Javert pulls a Fantine", but then expands into a massive second act of Valjean and Javert heading back to M-sur-M in an attempt to finish the work they started together years ago. Will they be able to find salvation?

    First attempt at fanfic; constructive criticism welcome.

    I do not own the characters, they belong to Victor Hugo.
