Author has written 22 stories for Les Miserables.

What follows is the chronicle of too many years of Les Mis obsession. Some of the things on here are much more worthwhile than others, but I'll let you decide what's what. Be forewarned that I don't tell stories so much as I slap a narrative guise on bits of meta/research.

Y'all are welcome to find me on tumblr/Ao3 under this name if that's your thing.

Pour Que Celui Qui Doute by AMarguerite reviews
Title from Gabriel Faure’s song 'En Priere'. Courfeyrac causes Marius to be speechless, debates with a priest, comments on the pretty girls at Mass, and ruminates on organized religion. Rated because Courfeyrac is says some things that he shouldn't.

Marius is 51 and still needs reassurance from a 25 year old...and a dead one at that.

The Miserable Diaries by Framboise reviews
Yes, somebody did it: a vague attempt at VSD-inspired humour for which I am truly sorry. Implied slash which I hope is far too silly to be even mildly offensive.

Cass County, Compromised reviews
A brief submission for the Les Mis Across History fest, and a tiny sliver of a possible pre-Civil War AU. Jean Valjean and Cosette settle in Cass County, Michigan, which was so well known for harboring runaway slaves that it helped prompt the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850.

Absolute Virtue of Prayer reviews
Medieval monastery AU: Brother Grantaire doesn't know if there's any difference between longing after Brother Enjolras or longing after his blazing awareness of the sacred. Enjolras, meanwhile, is in the process of finding his true creed.

Taxonomy reviews
Combeferre studies (and occasionally "studies") the women who come to the free public science lectures at the Jardin des Plantes. How does he react to the appearance of a seemingly unique specimen?

Certainty reviews
(or: The One Where Combeferre and Stephen Maturin Bitch at Each Other About Politics) My longest fic in ages - and I feel like it's a borderline parody of my style. Crossover, Combeferre-centric, and almost nothing but dialogue about the politics of self-sacrifice. In which Stephen Maturin recognizes too much of himself in his brightest student.

For Science reviews
Joly and Combeferre decide to try hashish For Science. Science quickly falls by the wayside. (This thing is a very silly thing. Also: drugs.)

Mundane reviews
Even Enjolras has his off days, when his desire for transcendence leaves him all the more earthbound. The first of a few ficlets that I'm transferring over from the tumblr-space.

A series of brief one-shots about the symbolic effect of graves on young men facing down death. 5: When the anonymous voice at the barricade calls for the "protest of corpses," Enjolras proposes an alternative.

Petit Cénacle reviews
In 1830, Jean Prouvaire, Théophile Gautier, and Philothée O'Neddy meet and debate "liberalism in literature" in conjunction with the events of the 'Battle of Hernani.' Almost 40 years later, Gautier and O'Neddy can't help but remember.

He obscurely entered reviews
What was going through Valjean's mind when he rushed into the town hall fire the evening he entered Montreuil-sur-Mer? By this take, he evidently believed that he had stumbled from the pages of Les Misérables into those of Fear and Trembling.

Playing Pygmalion reviews
Combeferre/Eponine, after an odd fashion. Hopefully not the horrific fluff you'd expect. Probably permanently abandoned; apologies - I'm not cut out for writing anything longer than oneshots.

That Slaveholding Brother reviews
A look at two historical fanboys and a sort of meta-by-proxy. A captured Confederate soldier argues with his Union guard about what the Brick means to him . Rated for regrettably accurate use of racial slurs.

Crimes of the Light reviews
One man's memories of the sensational Enjolras-Jeanne trial and how it shook the July Monarchy. Companion piece to "The Author of a Crime Hid in Darkness," but can be read alone as well.

Chrestien at Chanvrerie reviews
Who was the soldier that Combeferre was lifting when he was killed? Balzac's Michel Chrestien (that is, if one is willing to terribly misinterpret what Balzac said about his death). Crossover with Lost Illusions.

Geeky author-fic is an underappreciated genre. How Victor Hugo learned about the consequences of the multiple Saint-Simons on a luckless "Saint-Simonian" poet.

Dreams of Glory reviews
Enjolras dreams on June 4, 1832, and finds something of a soulmate. This was the first fic I ever liked enough to post, so it's certainly not my best, but I keep it around because I'm a sentimental wimp. A cute little crossover with Antigone.
