    Summary

    Roy is not her name.

    It wasn’t the largest thing she sacrificed to her ambition (her eyes her morality her innocence Riza Riza Riza--) but even after everything, it isn’t the smallest.

    (Mustang is a woman. This changes less than you might think)

    Summary

    Before they set the lions on us, Maria had said. There were always rumours about the games the Romans put on in their Coliseum, rumours so outrageous that Carol never put much stock in them. Tens of thousands of beasts killed in one morning? An ocean created inland to recreate naval battles? Ridiculous. She assumed the truth was smaller, a hundred beasts or a naval battle in a lake. Stories grow large as they travel across tongues.

     

     

    They're set to die by the lion's paws, but Maria and Carol aren't going down that easy.

    Summary

    Valjean and Javert are old and changed and carry the past with them nevertheless. This is not always a bad thing.

    Or: two old men try kink for the first time.

    Summary

    Would you like, do you want. As if Javert ever wanted anything in his life that wasn’t Justice or Order or a warmer coat. Even now it’s easier to frame things by what he doesn’t want; to be a bother, to take up space, to be shackled to this house.

    Though that last is something of a half-truth, one that makes Javert’s teeth grind. It is not, necessarily, that he wants to be anywhere but here, in Valjean’s kitchen, while the man makes tea for him. It is not, particularly, as if Javert has grand plans to escape. It is not even that he thinks of himself, that much, as trapped. It is only— Valjean’s house is cool in this endless summer, and Javert has nowhere else to go.
