I did a thing. Inspired by all this AU Fantine stuff and Vee’s drabbling.
Feuilly had introduced her. A gamine, lost to the streets, brought back from the brink. They fed her, clothed her. Joly offered his apartment, and as a student of medicine, he was able to nurse her back to health. Musichetta, sharing the apartment with Joly and Bossuet, took a liking to the girl almost immediately. She’d had her own group of friends of course, but they were often more concerned with makeup and fashion and teasing her about Joly and Bossuet than anything of real substance. They were good friends, but Musichetta was well-read, scholarly almost. She’d taken to reading Joly’s texts whenever he wasn’t using them, and was working toward becoming a fair caregiver.
So when Fantine joined their family, Musichetta sat with her. She bathed her, fed her, brushed out her hair which was starting to grow back now, thicker and more vibrant than before. Fantine spent her days sitting in the bay window, knees drawn to her chest, looking out over Paris. She seemed content, but Musichetta did not want her lost in thought, idling her time, thinking about the horrors of the streets constantly. One afternoon, she moved behind her, drew her up into her arms.
Fantine was taller, but slimmer. Musichetta’s dresses did not fit her well, too roomy in the bust and waist and much too short, always revealing two or three inches of ankle. Musichetta hardly minded. Fantine’s beauty never left her, even in her emaciated state. And now, weeks later after careful tending and proper meals, Fantine was radiant. Musichetta stood on tiptoe, leaning up to kiss her, wrapping her arms around that slender waist.
Fantine hesitated, but relaxed, opening her mouth the way Tholomyes had taught her to kiss. Only this was unlike him. This was warm and soft and wonderful, and she fit perfectly into Musichetta’s arms. Musichetta led her into Joly’s bedroom. The boys were at a meeting and their bed was far larger. And even though she and Fantine didn’t make love that night, the kisses and mutual embrace were enough to satisfy both women.
For the time being.
TC TC I LOVE YOU FOR THIS
So, I think I have made no secret of the fact…. well, actually, I don’t recall how much I post about this. My Les Mis OTP pairings that I love and have feels for and am very attached to are E/R, coming in a very close second to Joly/Bossuet/Musichetta OT3.
I may also have talked about polyamory feels
So. In this new au headcanon. Because obviously as an OT3 they are a bit fluid with non-monogamy and I’m perfectly comfortable with them actually being full on poly because I could read them that way. The major pairings. Joly/Bossuet obviously. Joly/Musichetta, with slightly less strong Bossuet/Musichetta. Those being the individual components, of course, of Joly/Bossuet/Musichetta, but with all comfortable with any of the rest falling into new relationships. So, simply add to that Musichetta/Fantine. So, thus we have a poly graph where Musichetta/Joly/Bossuet are a triad, with Joly/Bossuet and Joly/Musichetta both a bit stronger as relationships than Bossuet/Musichetta. And with the addition of lovely AU Fantine, we add Musichetta/Fantine, which of course in the lovely land of polyamory, is of course seperate from but happening in conjunction with Musichetta’s relationship with her two boys.
Okay, read more cut here because it gets into detailed polyamory discussion and terminology and personal info and a bit more of my feels and opinions on it.
