    Summary

    A remarkable "braided novel" of 8 stories and novellas which Macedon wrote in tandem with the equally remarkable Peg Robinson. Too sprawling (in the grand sense) in scale and reach to reduce to a mere synopsis; let us just say that this is Voyager unfettered and red in tooth and claw, such as Paramount with its nice tidy pander-to-the-demographics mentality could only dream of producing. Faith, community, alienation and belonging, honest conflict between Maquis and Starfleet, and the realities of life far from home and safety. These are just a few of the things Macedon and Peg handled with discretion and grace.

    Summary

    “I would like you to grant me another favor,” Valjean said, speaking in his "please help me do this illegal thing" voice.
     
     Javert folded his arms. He sank into his chair. His face contracted in silent fury, the way it had when Valjean asked him for favors on the night of the barricades so many weeks before, the way it always did when people seemed to think he was capable of making a concession.

    But he did not say “no.”

    “What is it?” Javert asked roughly.

    “Tonight I would like you to help me break into people’s houses to secretly give them money.”

     

    After Cosette's marriage, a dying Valjean decides to go back to doing what he did in Montreuil-sur-Mer-- breaking into people's houses to secretly give them money.

    But Valjean is now so old and weak that he can't do heists alone. If he wants to keep secretly giving people charity, he'll need to find someone-- ANYONE-- to be his Heist Partner.

    And the only person he can find is Ex-Inspector Javert.

    Summary

    For Barricade Day, a string of June days twelve years earlier. [Hugo got the year wrong, shhh.]

    "Bahorel had figured in the bloody tumult of June, 1822, on the occasion of the burial of young Lallemand."
    Lesgle and Grantaire- newly arrived in Paris and not yet quite the men they will become- almost do, too.

    Summary

    Combeferre took a deep breath. “When I arrived at the medical school this morning, a few students were talking in whispers about raids on several of the more radical cafés, and of students being arrested.”
