learned to be distrustful of large men. He doesn’t really talk much at first. Cosette is a year younger than him, but he’s been held back a grade so they go to the same school. She’s so kind and calm and understanding and not intimidating at all and they become really close, and eventually he starts opening up to Valjean too and they form a happy little family. Valjean adopts him when he’s 16.
imagine Valjean crying at their high school graduation omg (and Feuilly can’t believe he was once scared of him, but then again he is crying too, so…)
cosette and feuilly have siblings date in a little café every other week. the tradition is to treat themselves to the sweetest, more decadent drink in the house and they ask each other trivia questions from one of the games in the coffee shop! also gossip and laugh and just generally be kids.
