the worlds have fallen.
they saw it coming. their gods have gotten capricious in their boredom, they have clenched their immortal fists to watch stardust of past galaxies trickle from their fingers. their despot gods have gotten vengeful when all of creation turned its face away to its new religion of science; black holes of infernal rage consuming everything in their paths. civilisations are falling, star by star winking out of the darkness in the skies.
humanity is paralysed with horror, cities crumbling as citizens fall to their knees in futile prayer. but a group of desperate youths rise from the wreckage - the amis; gathering around the damned enjolras, whom they call the second coming (although of what, they they no longer know). enjolras preaches in cadences long forgotten,he preaches in rage and in blasphemy and calls for the peopel to learn to worship at the altar of their own humanity.
by his side is the replicant combeferre, the cyborg that is more human than human; and the incandescently brilliant rocket scientists prouvaire and courfeyrac. contrary to his better instincts, enjolras allows with them archbishop grantaire, one of the many religious figureheads who serve as guardians of a historical legacy utterly hollow of true believers. they scour the decaying shell of their lands to put together the musain, a ship that will shatter past the labyrinth of space and time.
the musain is captained by eponine, they spring themselves from the sticky well of gravity into the abyss of the heavens. along the way, they find cosette, a wingless angel; and valjean, one of the lesser gods; both of whom have fled form the corrupt kingdom of heaven with revulsion and horror.
together they wrench apart the fabric of reality to hunt down their alien gods at the fraying edges of the universe, to burn down the rotten divinities for a new epoch of re-creation.
pursuing them with ancient conviction is the immortal javert, guardian of the gods; blinded by his unquestioning faith - which cracks like the most delicate of webs as he soars past blackened constellations.
