City of glass - various Pairings, PG-13, 29/???

Postby SpiritOfDawn » Wed Mar 27, 2013 1:07 am

As Aurelia already shouted out my fic, I will dare to present it to you…
Although I am not absolutely sure as to how to advertise it.
It is a what-if, of sorts. A pre-revolution what-if (if and in what form it may continue after the barricade, I cannot tell yet). The trigger was a scene from the 2000er movie (which, I do realize, is not popular, but the plot bunny came from there anyway):
After Javert was captured at the barricade, he is searched and a booklet is found on him. Enjolras, leafing through it, realizes that it contains:
Our names, our addresses, the places we frequent, even the women we sleep with…
So: Imagine someone has already acquired significant intelligence about the dealings of Les Amis and their associates, about what they are planning and what they do. Why did no one ever try and prevent the 5th of June from happening?
So, what-if someone would have tried that?
And that’s where the ride begins.

What else is there? A wild mixture of book-/musical-/movieverse (I confess, I am taking my references as I see fit for the sake of forming my own universe…), a couple of pairings, canon and non-canon (yes, I know, E/É is really not popular these days, but I am trying to make it slow, believable and careful, and I appreciate a big kick if I become bad in that respect), basically most of the canon characters from that episode, lots of original characters and times of panic all around.
I try not to mess up history too blatantly and to cross my i's and dot my ts research-wise, but there is only so much one can do with limited time and resources. Errors, if correctable (hence if not tied to plot) will be corrected if pointed out...

The name of the game is: “City of glass”.
I’m pretty far into the fic already (given the fact, that its 18 chapters, not given the overall story), so I’ll give you a link to all chapters here:

Next round: Like walking on broken glass: In which there seems to be little hope for the Cougourde, a discussion in the Musain gets slightly out of hand and Musichetta is in a good mood.
