The Les Mis Anon Kink Meme, Round 6
exit pursued by javert
10littlebullets wrote in makinghugospin
Since LJ seems to have finally capitulated to the Russian government and is now subject to Russian anti-obscenity laws, I'm not going to take a chance on sudden deletions. The Les Mis kinkmeme now lives at https://lesmiskinkmeme.dreamwidth.org/. (Round 6 here.) Everything has been backed up there. The LJ kinkmeme will stay up, but is now closed to new comments.

The night before her wedding, Fantine comes to Cosette in a dream.

There is a lady all in white, shelters me by candlelight...
The old song from her childhood came back to Cosette, and suddenly a woman in a thin white gown approached her with soft footsteps. Her blond hair stuck out from her scalp in tiny wisps, and though her eyes and cheeks were sunken, Cosette could tell that she was beautiful. If she had known all along that she was beautiful, perhaps she would not have met her sad fate. Perhaps she would have known that she could do better.
"Cosette," said the woman softly, laying a hand on her shoulder, "my name is Fantine. I am your mother. I have come to bring you good wishes for your wedding tomorrow. Marius is a kind man, and he truly loves you. In this way, your life will be blessed. I have also come to warn you that tomorrow I will come to take your father away. His time has come, and I know that he loves you just as much as I did. But you must be ready to say goodbye to him."
Cosette stared up at her mother in bewilderment. Fantine had come to her in a dream once before, when she was about eleven. But she had not said anything, only emitted a warm heavenly glow. Even then, Papa had refused to tell her anything about her, other than that she had achieved sainthood "through martyrdom". She had almost wished he had said nothing at all, rather than that vague statement, which raised more questions than it answered.
"So he still has not told you the full story," she said. "Well, I will leave that task to him for tomorrow. For now, suffice it to say that he has given his life for your happiness, just as I gave mine for your comfort and safety. You will be taken care of and protected for the rest of your life by Monsieur Pontmercy, and one day, by your sons. You will never experience any pain, any suffering, any inconvenience, they will attend to your every need- "
Cosette screamed. Her scream woke up Marius and Gillenormand across the hall. Of course, her maid, Toussaint, came rushing in to see what was the matter. Cosette ordered her away. It wasn't that she was ungrateful. It was just that the realization of what it meant to be a wealthy married woman in 1833 France had struck her like a ton of bricks. Someone with a wild and brave nature such as hers could not long survive under the strict social conventions and taboos imposed upon her, the illegitimate daughter of a poor grisette. She saw now what all her parents' efforts had amounted to. The Lark was about to be forever trapped in a cage. In that instant, the Blond disappeared in a puff of smoke.

Well, I didn't see that coming.
