    Summary

    (Formerly called Javert's Redemption*)

    Javert wakes up in a hospital bed with as little will to live as when he dove into the Seine that cold, dark night. This slowly changes, however, as he makes the acqaintance of a kind spinster, whose bourgeois father allows her to provide charity to the hospital. Eventually Javert begins to realise that even though his old life may be over, life still has a hold on him.

    This story focusses on the physical, emotional and moral recovery of Javert and attempts to provide insight in his character, including his views on his parents, his actions concerning the rebellion, Valjean, Les Amis, God and life in general. The slow burn romance pulls it all together. There are nods to the musical, but apart from that this fic is meant to be historically acurate.

    Credits:
    Story, OC's and obsessing over general historical details by me.
    Reading of The Brick for all the necessary details and beta reading by my sister.
    Advice and research on 19th century French (bourgeois) culture by Groucha.

    Warning: Christian/Catholic themes, depression, T rating for mention of suicide.

    * Javert's Redemption was a working title that overstayed it's welcome.

    Summary

    “Am I disturbing you, Grantaire?”

    Profoundly. Grantaire draws on the nerves that keep him on his feet while boxing. Blows to the head make more sense than Enjolras darkening his doorstep on Christmas. He falls back. “No, of course not. Do come in. That is, if you have come to come in?”

    Summary

    Two men, two centuries, one name. In 1830, Mathias is a jaded novelist battling a laudanum addiction, hiding a secret and trapped by hypocritical society. In 2013, he's a lonely children's author struggling to find his path in life. One will fall for a captivating creature of the sea, the other for a troubled man who seems not quite of this world, an illustrator whose pictures show far more than just the story.

    Summary

    Jake had always been warned not to disturb the Fair folk, to keep to the path and walk true. To not heed their callings or disappear into the mist after a voice or look too closely at them. For death would follow him if he dared. They would charm him into a spell that would garner his emotions toward only them. Instead he was told to focus on taking over the farm once Grandma had exhausted her strength, especially with famine sweeping through the country as he grew older. Jade's innovation could only last so long.

    "Beware the kelpie, the water horse who walks upon the land..."

    He should have listened.

    Summary

    Gabriel comes up with a better plan to take on Lucifer. It involves bringing Dean, Sam and Cas with him on a trip to visit his old friend Samuel Colt and convince/harass him to make a new Colt, one that can kill archangels. Lucifer isn't exactly happy with this plan. It's the Apocalypse 1830s style, with horses, saloons, rotgut whiskey, and quick draw gunfights between angels and humans. Plus Cas in a cowboy hat.
