Rectober Post #10 - Les Miserables

Title:Her Favorite Color
Author: Pygmy Puff (ppuff)
Pairing(s) Javert/Valjean
Rating: PG13
Word Count: 18,021
Warnings: Major character death
Summary: This story started as a 5+1fic with the working title "Five Times Javert Met Jean Valjean in Prison and One Time by the Sea," but it grew into something much bigger. It is at the core a character study of two what-if scenarios: What if Javert raises Cosette? And: What if Jean Valjean remains in prison? The story spans Jean Valjean's life, so yes, it follows Valjean until his end.

“I have the child and you remain here for life. Are we agreed?”

Why I loved it: Remember that Les Miz art I recommended the other day? This is the fic that inspired it. It is stunning. Intelligent, unapologetic, and beautifully written. I love the insights it gives into both men. I finished it in tears.
