Apart from Killjoys stuff I've been writing terrible Emmerdale drawerfic in my head, so just be glad I've posted something half-sensible.I have also posted an ad on fivenights.com, but it hasn't been moderated yet. However if anyone's looking for a room to rent Mon-Fri in London, check out the Greenwich listings on the website from next week :D I am renting my spare room out to fund a trip to Japan which will be taking place next year. \o/ \o/ \o/ SUPER exciting but also very expensive.
So, The Musketeers (BBC version) is great. I presume you’re all watching it but if not, it’s really worth it :D. There's lots of fighting and some really, really attractive men (yes, yes, there's plenty of other things to recommend it, but I'm currently separated from my Transporter/District 13 DVDs, give me a break). There’s no new episode this week thanks to the BAFTAs (damn you, BAFTAs!) so you’ve got time to a) catch up and/or b) read fic.
I myself am currently rewatching episode 1 while writing this post. Excellent choice of activities for the evening.
I actually managed to last about three episodes before going looking for fic, which is quite a long time for me. For a small fandom it’s steadily growing and already contains some really good stuff. This is the stuff I’ve enjoyed so far.
Sewn by Stardropdream
This is my favourite fic in the fandom so far. It’s a lovely look at Aramis and Porthos post 103, hot but with some nice character work.
He kisses him, distracting, one hand sliding down over Porthos’ naked chest, his sentiment meaning he must trace over every scar he encounters, and his other hand resting on his shoulder, to keep him down – the touch light so as not to hurt him.
One of Us by breathtaken
Foursome fic. Basically Aramis wants to seduce D’Artagnan and convinces the others it’s a good idea (there’s now a second part of this I haven’t read yet).
"And where am I going to get good wine from in a day and a half?" Aramis affects annoyance, but Porthos can see his eyes are suddenly alive. He’s long observed that for Aramis, the risk inherent in such a liaison actually enhances the pleasure, which for Porthos doesn’t really bear thinking about. "Like he would know the difference anyway."
Mea Culpa, Mea Culpa, Mea Maxima Culpa by chaletian
Short Athos gen.
There is almost some poetic justice in being so judged. He can embrace it. Perhaps in this his earlier guilt will be expiated.
Prodigal Son by Suzie_Shooter
Fun gen fic
"Go home, D'Artagnan," Athos said coldly. "And stay there."
Not trusting himself to speak, D'Artagnan turned his back on them, mounted his horse and spurred it on, clattering out of the courtyard in silent fury and humiliation.
There was a pause.
"That was harsh," Porthos said, giving Athos a look that was half rebuke and half puzzlement.
"If a few hard words put him off, he's got no business being here in the first place," Athos said blandly.
My Brother’s Keeper/My Keeper’s Brother by sinistrocular
Gen fics about what the aftermath of Savoy, set directly after.
“He’s lucky to be alive.” Athos sat down on Aramis’s other side once again, neatly redressing the ghastly wound they both blamed for their friend’s stupor.
What they didn’t expect was the snort of air Aramis blew out of his nostrils. It seemed almost like it was meant to be a laugh if he’d had energy enough to do so.
Secrets and Skirmishes by dreamlittleyo
Athos/D’Artagnan with a good Athos voice
Tomorrow he will remember to be appalled with himself. Tonight he needs only this.
Afraid of Being Alone by Mackem
Nice Porthos/Aramis fic set after 103
“I didn’t mention innocence,” Porthos grins. “I don’t believe you were ever innocent, Aramis. I’ll bet you smirked before you smiled.”
Take my milk for gall by Chaletian
Really good Milady gen
She has never been a good woman. Virtue is not in her nature.
There is nothing on earth that we share by Chaletian
“A night-time assassination?” she replies, reaching out, lightly touching his hair. “How very tedious. You’ll suffer when I kill you, my dear Athos.”
Sure by deinonychus_1
Athos/D’Artagnan fluff, I really like this
“I was starting to think you’d never wake up.”
“I’m starting to wish I hadn’t.”
A Friend In Need by Suzie_Shooter
Athos/Porthos post ep 1
Porthos lifted his hat and scrubbed a hand through his hair, wishing Aramis was there. He was generally the one more suited to flights of philosophy.
Fair Trade by Suzie_Shooter
Athos/Porthos/Aramis fic, another really good one
"Suppose we'd better make it quick," Porthos sighed. "Or he'll be back looking for us."
"So are we doing ourselves, or each other?" Aramis enquired, and Athos snorted.
"And to think they call you the romantic one."
