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
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
Complementary by breathtaken (het)
Athos/Milady d/s pegging fic, yay
Silk, Velvet, Feathers, Furs by breathtaken (het)
Hot Aramis/Athos/Ninon fic (alternate scene for 107)
At Her Own Hand by breathtaken (het)
Aramis/Constance (sort of)
I know the weight of your throat by cartographies (slash)
The summary for this fic ‘Porthos beats Aramis up, beats him up again, sex.’
And such is the torment (of giving your organs) by cartographies (het)
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)
Of Peaches and Feathers by FeatheredShadow (het)
A really interesting look at a few months in the life of the queen (before 109)
A Dangerous Liaison/A Dangerous Game by Fredbassett (slash)
Athos/Treville fic, not a pairing I’d thought of before reading but I really like these fics
Cold and Closed by FunkyInFishnet (het)
I really like Aramis in this fic
As Good As A Rest by FunkyInFishnet (het)
Interesting look at Alice Clerbeaux after 108
Stay Awake With Me ( You Know I Can't Just Let You Be) by glowcult (het)
Thou Like Adamant by icarus_chained (slash)
Porthos/Aramis (just) after 103
I Pay It Gladly by Jevvica (gen, wip, chapters at time of posting: 3/?)
Really intriguing gen mission fic with an interesting OFC - really looking forward to seeing where this goes (NB have only read chapter 1, so yay, two new chapters for me!).
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
At the end of it all series by Mithlomi (het)
A Very Fine Hat archiveofourown.org/works/1307917
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
An Anatomy Of The Human Heart by spycandy (het, chapters at time of posting: 3/4)
Really enjoyable Athos/Ninon fic post series 1
(ETA: complete now and really good!!)
Before the Night Will End by stardropdream (slash)
More Aramis/Porthos post 103. I really like the way this fic looks at their relatioship.
Due Punishment by Suzie_Shooter (slash)
Excellent, long, satisfying h/c fic leading into OT4
Captive Audience by Suzie_Shooter (gen)
Gen featuring Athos and the Mother Superior from 109
Subtext by Suzie_Shooter (slash)
Excellent Porthos/Athos fic, one of my favourites
Starts With Goodbye by sweetrupturedlight (het, chapters at time of posting: 3/5)
More post series fallout from the queen’s pregnancy. I really like the Athos and Aramis interaction in this one.
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!
