Personally my favorite Les Mis AU is the one where Jean Valjean picks up the barricade and walks away

Jehan runs one of those “Date a ____” blogs and keeps calling out their pining friends in a ~subtle~ way when the tension gets too much to bear:

  • @mothboi: “Date a sunflower who looks at you like it’s the first day of summer”
  • @citizenred: “Date an artist who thinks you’re the finest masterpiece the world has ever seen”
  • @fannelfeuilly: “Date a gentle giant who will carry the world on his shoulders, because you’re his whole world.”
  • @cestdugrandart: “Date the exhilirating feeling of looking at fireworks on Bastille Day”
  • @courfeyyyyrac: “Date an insectologist and let the bed bugs bite”
  • @brawlrel: “Date the bright colours of autumn on a fine October morning.”

books of the nature of les misérables cannot fail to be of use

Foster Siblings Feuilly and Montparnasse
  • Feuilly is a few years older than Montparnasse, and has been living in the orphanage for as long as he can remember. He’s managed to channel that anger, jealousy, and sadness he used to feel into something positive
  • Montparnasse hasn’t
  • He’s just a kid who craves attention and care and reassurance
  • One day, Feuilly finds him crying alone in the bathroom, his knuckles blooded and his knees grazed, a little lost boy of 7. Some older kids say he looks too soft and needs to be roughened up. No matter how harshly Montparnasse tries to push Feuilly away, he collapses in Feuilly’s arms in tears
  • Feuilly patches up his scraped knees while Montparnasse is sitting on the cold and impersonal kitchen counter. Parnasse doesn’t say anything. He’s ashamed, for the most part. But grateful, too
  • Montparnasse does get rougher through the years. Better be on top of the foodchain than crying alone in a bathroom stall. No one makes comment on his soft face anymore.
  • But he does keep a soft spot for Feuilly. Montparnasse sometimes gives him stuff from his candy stash, while making other kids pay full price
  • Feuilly teaches Montparnasse things sometimes. Feuilly loves that, learning. He’s got a whole bunch of books under his bed and two library cards. Montparnasse, not so much. But he does like to listen
  • Feuilly being the closest thing to family Montparnasse has ever had
  • Feuilly having a fondness for that kid he won’t see as anything else than that seven year old he took under his wing

Jehan 

Jean Prouvaire was a still softer shade…Jean Prouvaire was in love; he cultivated a pot of flowers, played on the flute, made verses, loved the people, pitied woman, wept over the child, confounded God and the future in the same confidence…His voice was ordinarily delicate, but suddenly grew manly…Above all, he was good.

He spoke softly, bowed his head, lowered his eyes, smiled with embarrassment, dressed badly, had an awkward air, blushed at a mere nothing, and was very timid.

Yet he was intrepid.
