    Summary

    Just as in the Convention, the club, so too Saint-Just’s voice suffused every corner of the studio. It curled warm and rich around the whorls of Maxime’s ear and settled in them like deafness. He heard nothing else, attuned to Antoine’s voice as Brount to the whistle.

    Covering the period leading to the Fall of the Girondins to shortly after Marat's murder. Robespierre struggles with conflicting desires for peace and rest, while being no less committed to the Revolution. Rated M for the second chapter.

    Summary

    “I am here in advance of the Convention, as well you know. I arrived today.”
    “Most men would delay attendance in favour of rest.”
    “I am not most men. If most would find it pleasant to be on the periphery of great events, I have only felt myself in exile.”

    In which Saint-Just arrives in Paris and quite unintentionally upsets the general order of Robespierre's private life.

    Summary

    Once, Maximilien Robespierre had been certain that the Revolution must be close to achieving its goals. The ongoing wars, the shifting of the factions and the deluge of plots, lies and false-friends have disabused him of that notion. The time has come to face the hardest choice imaginable and fight within the Convention, the Committee and the Jacobin Club to secure the Republic and its people, and defend his companions, his beloved friend and everything he holds dear.
