Les Mis: Javert at ease by Nyranor Les Mis: Javert at ease by Nyranor
In celebration of at long last getting my inbox back down into the single-digits for the first time in months, I present "Javert at ease" as a token of my return while I sort through the rest of my sketch backlog.

Inspector Javert of Victor Hugo's Les Misérables in a rare free moment, sitting in a windowsill, for some reason.

"In his leisure moments, which were rare, although he hated books, he would read; so he was not entirely illiterate. This was also perceptible in a certain pomposity in his speech." pg. 172

I love how even when he's re;axed he's looking at the book like I am onto you book just step one toe out of line and into the galleys with you do not think you can escape me you are right where i want you

Whoa, Javert... relaxed? This is some of the most effed-up AU crap...

(I kid, of course)

I really love makes him look more human, somehow.

LOL that's one of my favorite lines in the book XD It cracks me up a bit....It's just like Javert ;)

I imagined him reading books with an expression like that too XD The grumbling, "I really hate this, I don't know why I'm doing this, but I'd rather be preoccupied with this than have to go spend time with people in my free time." It's understandable given everyone's reactions to him when he appears in public T.T "Aaaaah, it's Javert!!!!"

That line in Hugo's is spot on! It makes me wonder, though - what is it that Javert reads that he hates? :P

Even relaxing, he's scowling. Ahh, we love you, Javert.

Another beautiful picture. :)
