    Summary

    [Some of my fellow IRC chatters gave me prompts for three-sentence ficlets, which of course ended up containing way more than three sentences, syntactically speaking -- consider yourself warned for liberal use of semicolons and dashes. Rating G to M.]

    Summary

    He had first noticed it back in his youth, while still a guard at Toulon. Walking past the convicts, determined that nothing should escape his eye, he had sometimes felt a peculiar stirring in his trousers. It had been a fleeting feeling at most, nothing to take note of. Sometimes it would return at night, in which case he would breathe deeply and wait for it to pass. It had been of no consequence at all.

    But then, of course, there had been that particular convict: 24601. Jean Valjean.

    If there is a just God, then surely He will not ignore Valjean's sighs of pleasure, or those secret smiles that are meant for Javert alone?

    Summary

    Javert was not one to disrespect tradition. Not even traditions that might look, at first glance, rather unorthodox. After all, the very fact that a custom was adopted by the Parisian police force, that bastion of steadfastness, should speak for its respectability.

    Summary

    Javert stepped close to him, putting a large hand on the small of his back. When he spoke, his voice was rough and low. "You still haven't learned to shut up, have you?"

    "You still haven't learned how to make me," Montparnasse quipped.

    Summary

    "A miracle," Valjean repeated, his breath now a ghost against Javert's cheek. He had not let go of Javert's fingers and Javert found himself clutching at his hand. "I had never thought to look for such a thing. But here we are."

    Summary

    Jean Valjean had saved his life: Javert would admit as much. And not by accident, either. Not after the second time.

    Why had he done it? Why had he not let Javert die, why was Javert still being kept alive, hobbling around the small hut like an old favourite dog retired from duty? Surely Valjean must realise that Javert's loyalty could not be bought nor traded?

    Javert looks for answers.

    Summary

    This is death, Valjean thinks. It must be. How very strange it should take such a form. The two of them, captor and captive, held alike here in this dark Purgatory.

    A failed suicide, a failed rescue attempt, and some unexpected consequences.

    Summary

    He glanced over to the fireside, where Valjean was lost in a book. Ever since the cat's arrival, he had taken to sprawl on the floor next to it while reading, instead of sitting in his chair as befitted a man his age. Lounging like that, on his side so he could turn the pages with one hand while using the other to rub the cat's belly -- it was undignified, Javert thought, pursing his mouth.

    Summary

    "Weak," he muttered, stroking Marius through the trousers. "And yet so hard for me. How long have you been waiting for someone to see you for what you are?" He cupped the boy's hardness and squeezed. "To give you what you deserve?"

    (Or: Marius and Javert both have secret kinks they feel terribly ashamed of. Fortunately, or unfortunately, they can act them out with each other.)

    Summary

    Javert's eyes are watching him like a hawk ready to strike, and suddenly Robert is reminded of that time in the pottery when he lost an arm-wrestling match to a stranger and his heart along with it. This, too, is a trial of strength, one that Javert is expecting him to lose.

    Summary

    Valjean's gaze was still on him, warm, tender, heated; there was not a shade of doubt in it, and again Javert could do nothing but bow to this gift, accept it with trembling hands and a gratitude that could and should be expressed by passion only.

    Summary

    "We were there," Haddock says softly, turning to Tintin. His face is partly in darkness, but in the silver light from the moon he looks puzzled. "No more than a year ago. How on Earth did that happen?"
