    Summary

    Cosette catches them in the act. Complications ensue.

    “I saw her face when she came in,” Valjean says. “It was—" he shakes his head. “I presumed Cosette would not look kindly on me if she knew, but this—" He shudders, and Javert resists the impulse to rest his hand on Valjean’s shoulder as he has done a hundred, a thousand times. Sometimes he prefers to touch Valjean in lieu of speaking to him; the measured movements of their bodies have always spelled his desire more plainly than any clumsy, insufficient words. Words have never been able to contain this, whatever has grown and blossomed between them since last June—but now, he thinks, perhaps they must. Now that it has all been brought to light, words are the only thing that may salvage the wreckage.

    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

    Javert/Valjean - hatesex that becomes a genuine relationship.

    From the prompt: Javert recognises Madeline as Valjean from the moment they meet, but they both know that any accusation would come down to his word against that of a respected businessman. So Javert goes about his duties and waits for Valjean to slip up, while Valjean goes about his life and waits for Javert to denounce him.

    Of course it would all be so much easier if they didn't have to see each other every day.

    Summary

    Water wears at all things; erosion is as unstoppable a force as the cycles of the tide. A cliff becomes a canyon; the sharpness of a broken shard of glass can be made soft enough to hold, though still rough across each surface.

    Five times Javert looked down, and one time that he looked up.
