    Summary

    “Let it be me who goes, at least. I will not allow him to slip through my fingers again.”
    “You!” the mayor laughed. “He knows you, does he not? He would recognize you at once.”
    “Convicts such as him see only the uniform – he will never recognize the man.”

    In which Javert goes undercover at number 50-52, desperately attempts to remain on the right side of the fine line between love and hate, and is wrong about nearly everything nearly all of the time.

    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."

    Summary

    Valjean pulls Javert up out of dark waters.

    ""No," Valjean says, but Javert knows that he has planted the possibility – Valjean shoving aside the bedclothes and rucking up his nightshirt and the grim slap of flesh on flesh and those hard convict's eyes boring into the back of his neck, Valjean's breath on the back of his neck again, and –

    The rush of blood southward catches him almost by surprise. He hopes Valjean does not notice the change in his eyes, the startled swallow. He always hopes too much. To see where he stands Valjean need only glance at the bedclothes.

    This, Javert thinks, the thoughts leaden in his stomach. This, this, this is what becomes of you without the prop of your law. This is where your thoughts slink – vile and filthy, back to the gutter, this is the slimy rind that's left of you –"

    Summary

    It was 3:43 AM. It wasn't snowing, but it was cold enough to freeze piss on the sidewalk and the Comedian had just walked halfway across the Lower East Side, swearing up and down that they'd be able to get a drink under the table at this place he knew, because he knew the guy who owned the joint, and it was always open late if you knocked on the door the right way. Except that it wasn't.
