Les Misérables AU: Inception
Marius Pontmercy, the world’s finest in the art of dream manipulation, has been offered one last job. He swears this will be the final job—if he can do this, put this behind him, he can get home to his beloved family though the love of his life, Cosette, is dead. The only problem with this job? It’s the hardest one yet: inception.
The rebels of a new French Revolution have hired Marius to target a man named Javert. Javert is a political powerhouse in France, and the rebels believe if they can convince him to join their side, they can win the revolution. Marius is supposed to plant a simple idea: the revolution is good. If Marius can succeed, he will be saving hundreds of lives and building a new France.
To do this, Marius assembles a team of only the finest: Enjolras, his point man, logical and cold and dedicated, willing to do anything to get the job done; Éponine, a bright young architect, whose fresh insight on the streets of France could be the key to succeeding; and Grantaire, the forger, a sarcastic young man who has a tendency for laziness and drinking, but whose strategy and skill is unmatched.
But in dreams, things are not always what they appear to be, and maybe the team has gotten in too deep. Tempers flare as the dream begins to unravel. Marius blames Enjolras for not planning properly; Enjolras accuses Grantaire of never doing the job right; Grantaire thinks Éponine’s hiding something from them; Éponine knows Marius is haunted by Cosette. They will have to work together to plant the idea before the dream, and the hopes of the New French Revolution, come crashing down.
