    Bookmarker's Notes

    Entertaining Bond/Q fic where MI6 is basically insane, everyone thinks Q is a child, and most people are gunning for 007. Good banter.

    Captures the feelings of anxiety/depression pretty well. Derek comes over every day to help Stiles get back in the game - running, exercising, telling him to meet girls. Stiles figures out he likes Derek (of course), and things progress sweetly. Feels like there could've been more to the story ... longer with more plot, but what's there is enjoyable character stuff.

    Summary

    That night on the parapet, Valjean forces Javert to live. Some time later, Javert finds himself returning the favor. 

    "Do you think," Javert said slowly, in a tone that perhaps meant to mock but trembled with another emotion entirely, "that once you have saved a life, you must also save that man's soul?"

    "I know nothing of saving souls," Valjean said. "My soul was bought for God, not saved. But it is my belief that you are better than the fate to which you have consigned yourself."

    Quite possibly the slowest slow burn ever written, and that's saying something. Gorgeous story of friendship developing after Valjean refuses to let Javery jump. After the wedding, Cossette goes to the Inspector to implore him to find her father. Javert finds him having given up on life, and basically bullies him into living again. The argumentative friendship between them is lovely. Some hurt/comfort as Valjean recovers and Javert is injured apprehending Thenardier. They plant a garden together. 5/6 chapters up, updated in Jan 2014, subscribed to see it finished. Lovely, lovely development, so slow and fitting of time and style.

    Texting. Cora and Derek on a road-trip of sorts. Stiles saving them with a fake Amber alert. Sheriff being great, and Scott too. Stiles asking Derek to come back, and happy PG ending. Nice.

    Excellent story, in character to the film/musical, and a lovely development between the characters as they build a life together. The touches of humour are great, and the language is very much in the proper style. Enjoyable read.
