    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.)

    Summary

    She just needs a minute or two to unscrew the polite smile she's been wearing all night, and then she'll be ready to face the rest of "meet your perfect girlfriend's perfect dad" night.

    If she'd thought it through, she might have remembered Cosette's other dad.

    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."
