This post has taken me ages and is ridiculously long. However it is for a really really good reason.

More Musketeers fic recs for a few reasons:
  • the show ate my brain and continues to do so even though it’s finished (whhhhhy did filming have to start so soon? I was looking forward to not being obsessed)
  • the fic is really good
  • I told delgaserasca I’d do some het/gen/AU fic recs
Unfortunately it then turned out that I had too many recs that could cross those categories so this is just a massive list, sorry not sorry.

Fics are organised by author name and I have tried to mark whether they’re gen/het/slash/AU/wip, though this list is so long now I’ve probably got something wrong. Any errors in labelling are mine, obviously.

Devouring Time and Chageful Chance by akathecentimetre and JakartaInn (mostly gen with implied slash/het, AU)

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy AU. Would have liked this to have been longer, it’s great :D

His Smile Me Draws, His Frown Drives Me Away ch 9 by akathecentimetre (gen)

Cute prompt fill about Treville and Anne (title has nothing to do with content, it seems to be the series title). I don’t want to say anything else, haha!

Turn and Turn Again by AndreaLyn (slash, chapters at time of posting: 7/?)

I am LOVING this modern reincarnation AU. Loving every bit of it.

A night in London by Ariana (het)

Short Athos/Milady post s1

Featuring an Anne who knows what she’s doing (and how risky it is) and knows what she wants.

every time i see your face by cherryfeather (het, slash)

Incredibly hot D’artagnan/Constance fic. The second part (OT5, hello) has now been posted and is just as good

Let your bones show by cherryfeather (slash)

Very hot and hopeful (sounds odd I know) OT3 fic

Unus Pro Omnibus, Omnes Pro Uno by cherryfeather (AU, WIP, het, slash, chapters at time of posting 6/?)

Slightly odd modern uni AU (possibly because I actually know bugger all about fencing so all that stuff goes right over my head) but getting nicely involved and emotional as it goes on.

Balizarde by Cunien (gen)

Porthos-centric gen, I really liked this fic’s characterisation

Call it your day number one by evewithanapple (femslash)

Really good coming out fic featuring Fleur from 108

all you’ve been allowed by evewithanapple (het)

Bonacieux/Constance, TW for emotional abuse, depressingly plausible but with a hopeful ending at least

(Un)Fulfilled by Evening_Bat (slash)

Aramis/Porthos. Pining.

Of Peaches and Feathers by FeatheredShadow (het)

A really interesting look at a few months in the life of the queen (before 109)

Athos/Treville fic, not a pairing I’d thought of before reading but I really like these fics

I really like Aramis in this fic

One Breath by Kerosene (het)

D’artagnan/Constance porn after episode 7

Heal by Degrees by lynndrye (gen)

I know it’s not a surprise that this is a really good fandom for h/c, but this is a really good fandom for h/c. In this fic, Athos and Porthos have to patch each other up without Aramis.

To catch your eyes by Mackem (slash)

Aramis pining. I keep hoping there will be another part to this where he actually says something but it’s not happened yet (although this really applies to any pining fic in this fandom, I just want it to have a happy ending!).

in love with your careless moments by magisterquitum (het)

Anne/Aramis expanding on 109

No strings to bind your hand by Magnetism_bind (het)

Brief Athos/Ninon piece with nice character work

Fluffy D’artagnan/Constance series, I really like the third one (and only realised today that they’re a series, hahaha)

Cutting a Dash by mnemosyne (gen)

D’artagnan is a tactile drunk. Light gen fic.

The language of half-lidded eyes by Ponderosa (slash)

Weirdly there is barely any Athos/Aramis fic to speak of (outside of OT3/OT4), but I thought this one was good

For Want Of A Needle by pristineungift (slash, AU)

As mentioned elsewhere, there’s not much proper angst in this fandom, but here is an AU ending for 103. Super pleased it’s just an AU, that’s all I’m saying.

Forged Bonds by Red_Tigress (gen)

This is an excellent long gen fic about the long road to Porthos becoming a Musketeer. It’s really well-paced and a very satisfying read.

I Dream Of The Court by Red_Tigress (gen)

Porthos angst. Reading this made me realise how little pure angst there is in this fandom, and also that I’d quite like some more. 

About Grace by romancandles (slash)

Although this is Aramis/Porthos it’s not really the focus of the fic. It’s more about Porthos being a Musketeer.

And All Is Well by schweinsty (gen)

D’artagnan h/c after episode 1

Actus Contritionis by schweinsty (gen)

Angsty Athos gen, very in character

Really enjoyable Athos/Ninon fic post series 1

More Aramis/Porthos post 103. I really like the way this fic looks at their relatioship.

Excellent Porthos/Athos fic, one of my favourites

We sleepy children series by whiplash (slash)
archiveofourown.org/works/1227889 (link to part 1, smooth our thoughts from our brow)

A very slow burn leading to OT3 (not sure if the series is finished, three parts so far)

(not quite) a walk in the park by whiplash (slash)

Another fic based on the same prompt as Heal by Degrees - Athos and Porthos have to patch each other up without Aramis there

Kink Meme Fill #9 by whiplash (gen, au)

Far too short fic in which Porthos is basically Sherlock Holmes

Kink Meme Fill #11 by whiplash (gen)

I read this last night and absolutely adored it. Short fic prompted by the idea of them all living together as per the most recent Musketeers film (which, btw, I watched recently and it was GREAT)

A Rebellious Woman by theworthofhollin (au, wip, chapters at time of posting: 7/?)

D’artagnan is a girl in disguise! Gosh I love this trope, and am enjoying this fic very much.

Never Quite Eden series (currently includes A Mermaid Has No Tears and Off the Edge of the Map) by writteninhaste (au)

Thematically linked fics best described as magical creature AUs - both stories are complete at the moment but I hope there might be more. Not an AU I’d been thinking about but a different take on things and worth a read.

...And now I need to go and comment on these fics!

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."
