    Summary

    Go round, come round, come round, o distant time
    Come round, call back my heart
    Birds, bugs, beasts
    Grass, trees, flowers
    Teach me how to feel
    If I hear that you pine for me
    I will return to you.

    —“Tennyo no uta”/“Celestial maiden’s song,” Isao Takahata & Riko Sakaguchi

    Once upon a time, on a moonlit night, a poor and childless woodcutter found a miniature girl in the bole of a cornel tree.

    Summary

    “A million people hungry, needing the fruit — and kerosene sprayed over the golden mountains. And the smell of rot fills the country.” — The Grapes of Wrath, John Steinbeck

    The world, as it is, is intolerable. To Yao Wang, released from nineteen years on the chain gang, a convict and a pariah. To Efrosyni Katsafanas, abandoned by her son’s father. To Alfred F. Jones, upholder above all else of the law. To Feliciano Fu Ling Wang, rescued by his adoptive father, who wants the truth about himself and the world. To Ludwig Sulzbach, struggling to see outside of his grandfather’s poisonous legacy. To Francis Bonnefoy, who sees in the city of Bendición the conditions out of which a better world can be formed. They must each answer for themselves the question: what is to be done? What are they willing to sacrifice, and what are they willing to create, for the world they long to see?

    Hetalia-Les Miserables (book and musical) fusion AU, set in vaguely-parallel-historical WWI/interwar California (and Oregon) with the serial numbers filed off. Character, pairing, and tag lists will be updated when necessary.
