    ¿Y qué pasaría si la redención de Javert pasara por un aprendizaje pseudo-religioso? ¡Fantástica premisa!

    Summary

    When Jean Valjean (now Fauchelevent) opened a café in Newtown with his daughter, he never expected to be brought face to face with his greatest fears and his oldest foe. When Inspector Javert first visited the new café across the road from the police station, he never expected to see a face which stirred old memories and new emotions. But the path their acquaintance leads them on is a dangerous one, which will threaten to shatter everything Javert thought he knew about himself.

    Is self-destruction all there is to be achieved, or is it enough to live for the smile of an ex-convict, and the possibility of becoming a good police officer?

    (Modern Sydney coffeeshop AU, combining M-sur-M and Paris eras, set in some weird dystopian AU where there aren’t already three cafés on Australia Street alone.)

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Muy interesante puesta en escena, esfuerzo extraordinario para mantener la línea temporal, a pesar de ser universo contemporáneo. Personajes profundos y a la búsqueda de identidad, en una evolución bien ajustada en el tiempo y sin llevar a límites extremos de angustia. Ubicado en Australia.

    Summary

    Eponine takes a step, and then pauses, remembering Valjean’s gentle touch. It’s weird, how his touch seems to linger, like a bruise that doesn’t hurt. She thinks of his concerned look, and another, bitter laugh escapes her. Well, let him worry and wonder. He doesn’t know her.

    Against her will, Eponine survives the barricade. Things get more complicated from there.
