is a Slash Spin-Off Fan Webcomic
(so part of the Buildingverse
) by spiritfox94
that began as a perspective flip
from the POV of Superintendent Jean Valjean
but drifted towards the exploration of his (Ho Yay
/ Foe Yay
and in the parent series Omake
) relationship with (ex-)Inspector Javert
. (You can read it here
This comic still features the whole main cast of its parent series so Jareth
and James Norrington
and also Morgan
but adds more characters from Les Misérables
and other sources like The Hunchback of Notre Dame
(for Popcultural Osmosis
reasons designs mostly taken from the Disney adaptation
Tropes found in Superintendent:
- Aborted Arc: The Baleful Polymorph one got dropped because of Series Hiatus and artist block.
- Abuse Mistake: Jareth made one... when poofed (teleported) in uninvited once.
- Aesop Amnesia: Jareth repeatedly "learns" that appearing uninvited in Valjean's apartment is a bad idea, it never sticks.
- All Just a Dream: The current arc started with Valjean mysteriously back in the setting of Les Misérables, thinking this. Thus far, we don't know why.
- Baleful Polymorph: Can happen to the cast when Jareth's bored.
- Cerebus Syndrome: It got a lot darker after the Aborted Arc mentioned earlier.
- Covert Pervert: Both Valjean and Javert. They managed to surprise Jareth.
- Crossover Ship / Crack Pairing: Not an active couple in-universe anymore but Morgan / Clopin still have chemistry.
- Everyone Loves Blondes: Valjean attracts attention even from Javert's sister Esmeralda.
- The Faceless: The Thénardiers are just silhouettes... with Glowing Eyes of Doom.
- Fashionable Asymmetry: Clopin.
- Fatal Attractor: Esmeralda in her own admission.
- Fever Dream Episode: The arc about Javert's death. Valjean's. Who got wounded and ended up in hospital.
- Great Gazoo: Jareth as highly powerful fae lord and professional nuisance.
- Guy on Guy Is Hot: Well it's slash but also Morgan isn't above taking pictures of the main couple kissing in the name of fanservice.
- Happily Adopted: Cosette.
- Has Two Mommies: Cosette has two daddies.
- Hidden Eyes: The most telling mark when Morgan is in a bad mood.
- Massive Multiplayer Crossover: In the Buildingverse pretty much standard. Les Misérables, Labyrinth, The Phantom of the Opera, Pirates of the Caribbean, King Arthur, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, etc..
- Mood-Swinger: Morgan still swings between "good" and "evil".
- Medium Awareness: One of the less self-aware of the Buildingverse fics but fanservice is still acknowledged as one of the main power of the 'verse by Morgan.
- One Head Taller: Javert to Valjean.
- Recursive Fanfiction: Yet another Roommates Spin-Off.
- Roma: Clopin, Esmeralda probably Javert counts too.
- Sexy Discretion Shot: The standard way of dealing with the main couple getting intimate.
- Switching P.O.V.: The first fifteen or so pages are just this for Roommates.
- Tall, Dark and Snarky: Javert.
- Tangled Family Tree: Every magical being is related... who they are related to are related too, which causes quite a lot of cross-story-connectivity between the works of Victor Hugo.
- Unbroken Vigil: Javert didn't leave Valjean's side when he was in hospital wounded. His talking to him helped to wake him up too.
- Visit by Divorced Dad: Javert's father came to visit for Christmas once, he didn't appreciate it at all.
- Wacky Parent, Serious Child: Javerth and both of his parents. As his mother Morgan has two settings Moe and Obviously Evil that she swings between without warning, while his father Clopin is a Lovable Rogue. Both have Amazingly Embarrassing Parent tendencies to boot.
- Your Door Was Open: Jareth has no sense of privacy and a teleportation spell.
