When Apollo Met Persephone (a fic rewrite): PG-13!!

Postby Aurelia Combeferre » Fri Dec 21, 2012 4:52 pm

Essentially, a rewrite of "A Thenardier's Redemption". I know, the crack ship of Éponine/Enjolras does not get much love nowadays, but it's just so fun to write and take to all kinds of odd extremes. In this case: political and social extremes.

This fic is strictly PG-13. There's lots of drama and disturbing stuff: violence, triggering scenes, PTSD, and references to abuse. Not to mention that our characters do not have the cleanest minds or vocabularies.

First 4 chapters here:

Chapter 1: http://1832redux.livejournal.com/1047.html

Chapter 2: http://1832redux.livejournal.com/1349.html

Chapter 3: http://1832redux.livejournal.com/1629.html

Chapter 4: http://1832redux.livejournal.com/1962.html

They all look great so far, Aurelia! :mrgreen: Definitely looking forward to the rest, as this looks like the rare type of EE that's somewhat plausible.

That is the entire thesis of the experiment: How to make EE plausible.

Which doesn't mean that plausible EE = happy ending all around.

Chapter 5 up: http://1832redux.livejournal.com/2151.html.

More of a segue, really. Things get crazier next chapter.

Yesyesyesyesyes I loved this in its original form--needless to say, I'm thrilled you're rewriting it!

It's funny. I first wrote this when I was Éponine's age (all of seventeen). Now I'm closer to Enjolras' age, and boy how perspectives change. And how I want to smack Éponine upside the head sometimes. At least it's easier to get into Enjolras' mind this time around!

Chapter 7 up! I might not be able to work on this as much for a week or so; out of town trip. But I will post if I have the time and net access.

Chapter 11: http://1832redux.livejournal.com/3701.html. In which Enjolras gets caught up with work, and becomes instrumental in a much-needed confrontation.

Chapter 12: http://1832redux.livejournal.com/3842.html. Éponine comprehends what it means to have her brothers with her, and gets some news. The mystery of Claquesous gets dredged up. Warning: this part does have some references to prostitution and proposition.
