    Summary

    Combeferre gently loosens his grip, and maybe he lingers longer than he is supposed to. Prouvaire’s skin is soft, but his fingers are callused, and his fingernails are blunt and short. He has a freckle near his third knuckle. “I actually haven’t read anything of his. This is the first.”

    Prouvaire is still smiling when he lets go of Combeferre’s arm. “Ah, so you are one of the uncultured.” There’s a hint of frost in his tone.

    Combeferre sputters in indignation. “I’m sorry?”

    Summary

    Joly first bumps into her on his way to a lecture. She’s dressed well, a little on the eccentric side, and Joly’s heart skips a beat when she helps him up. She wears a roguish smirk to go with the pencil stuck jauntily in her curls, and stares boldly at him as he goggles at her.

    “I want to sneak into the medical school,” she says, brushing the dust off her dress. “Would you help me, please?”

    Summary

    The year 2014 by three weeks preceded Barack Obama, with a sort of presidential presumption not devoid of stateliness, announcing that he had no more campaigns to run. It was the candid time where Pope Francis snuck out of the Vatican at night to visit the homeless, dressed as a peer of Rome. The United States army was still wearing the Universal Camouflage Pattern. Osama bin Laden had been in the North Arabian Sea for three years already.

    A modern retelling of the events of 1817, 1.3.1-9.
