Found this on Instagram.
At least make an effort to credit the artist?
This looks like it’s by breadsports.
I wish I knew the artist. Who knows who it was? I love the way the artist did this! It’s beautiful!
…This is not a mystery. I linked to breadsports’ art tag, it’s literally on the second page, right here. (By the way, the word ‘here’ is a link to the piece of art you reposted on the artist’s tumblr.)

So like I get really into these Valvert fics and I’m sitting here squealing because it’s adorable and there’s about to be smut and I’m totally cool with that and then they use the word ‘cock.’
Can we not find a better word?
Everyone and their creepy ass cousin uses ‘cock’ and frankly, it just doesn’t fit. In most of these.
And then this one fic said that Valjean had a “delectable ass” and i’m just
It doesn’t work for me okay.
They’re all really good.
That just throws me off.
Do you have any other suggestions? Because trust me, I have thought about this long and hard (obligatory dick joke.) I have looked up lists of 80-some synonyms for the word penis, and when it comes down to it, cock isn’t the best, but it is the least worst. “Dick” is too modern, “prick” is too British… I’m partial to “manhood” for period pieces, myself, but I know that that weirds some people out.
i’m not saying javert’s a bad guy i’m just saying that if he grew up when Hitler’s youth was a thing he almost definitely would have become a nazi
you thought it couldn’t get worse but the post starts with this
I have so much love for Javert, and I’m not sure he’s all that well-understood.
this is my tasteless blog: I just realised something
I was watching Les Mis and realised Javert was chasing Valjean for 20 odd years, after he had already served his time of 20 years - for stealing some bread.
A fucking loaf of bread.
Javert wasted twenty fucking years of his life hunting down a man, just for…
Oh my God, it was a joke!! :P Valjean served his time and was deemed a “dangerous man” on his parole - stealing bread because you are starving does NOT make you dangerous, it makes you desperate.
He was on the run for twenty years, even though he had already served his time. He had already made up for his. I can understand how initially they would try to track him down. But Javert wasted TWENTY YEARS OF HIS LIFE trying to find him.
There are serial killers on the loose, racketeers who continue to perform crimes. Valjean never broke the law again after the priest forgave him for stealing. Yet Javert still thought it necessary to go after him.
My point is, there are people who have escaped imprisonment prior to completing their sentence for worse crimes who he could have gone after, and he chose to chase a man who only committed breaking and entering to steal some bread because - not even for him, to save someone else.
Like I said, that man still needs to sort out his priorities.
Yeah, stealing bread makes you desperate, but twenty years in prison makes you dangerous. I don’t think you understand- before the Bishop intervened, Valjean was legitimately a bad man. He came into prison innocent, but he left it with a deep hatred for and mistrust of society and a desire to lash out. Did his life shit on him? Yes. But the attention he got from the law was not at all unwarranted. He literally breaks parole and immediately falls back into a life of crime. Remember that at this point he has spent more time in prison than out of it- he doesn’t even know how to be a law-abiding citizen anymore.
He was only alive for eighteen years after he was released from prison, and do you know how many of those years Javert devoted to pursuing him? Almost none. Javert wasn’t assigned to M-sur-M because he was looking for Valjean; he was assigned there by chance, and he happened to recognize Valjean as the mayor. He pursued Valjean for a brief period of time after that, because the trial of Chapmathieu wasn’t just about a parole-breaker- they suspected he had fallen in with his old gang from Toulon and committed a series of robberies, and Valjean didn’t bother to deny it when he confessed. They were on the look-out for a violent repeat offender masquerading as a man of honor.
And then Javert was transferred to Paris. Valjean chose to go there too, but those decisions were not at all related. Javert spent most of his time in Paris doing his job and tracking down people who were not Valjean, and even if he hadn’t, he commits suicide in 1831… only 16 years after Valjean’s release. It’s hardly the same as 20 years.
