potentiality_26: (musketeers)
So I'm halfway through doing all the masterlist updating I wanted to do.  I feel bad taking a break in the middle because right now I have a bunch of back-dated posts that are supposed to link to other posts that don't exist yet, but I'm going to be busy for the next couple of days so... *shrugs* It is what it is.

I've started watching S3 of The Musketeers!  I'm enjoying it so far.  I've missed this show so much, and since it seems like this will be the last season I want to make the most of it.

Title: The Second Time Around
Fandom: The Musketeers
Pairing/Characters: Athos/Milady de Winter, Anne of Austria, Catherine, Sarazin, Original Characters
Summary: Milady finds a second chance where she least expects it.
Rating: PG-13
Length: Medium (5,578 words)
Disclaimer: Nothing you recognize belongs to me.
Notes/Warnings:This started as a little vignette I wrote on tumblr that grew unexpectedly. It's kind of jossed already by what we've heard about S3, but I still wanted to get it out of my system.
Excerpt: He crossed to her, silent, and reached into his jacket. He withdrew a glove. It had been white, once, but it wasn‘t anymore. Oil, gunpowder, dirt and blood had entirely transformed it, but it was hers. Dropped in the struggle. Hers.

I was tagged by [livejournal.com profile] a_phoenixdragon for this meme: Ze Challange Grande is to pull seven lines from the seventh page of your WIP. Then you're supposed to tag seven other writers.

These kind of memes always crack my zillion WIPs and me up.  Like I just have one.  *snorts*


An excerpt from an Athos/Milady thing I'm working on for The Musketeers:

“Are you happy?” Athos asked.

His tone suggested… something. It was a leading question, that much Anne knew, and she stiffened a little. “What do you mean?”

“I mean that…” He sighed and started again: “I suspect you’ve been… satisfied, in your way, being queen of this… rather unimpressive little castle. But are you happy?”
  

So I think I'm never going to be great at tagging people, but if you're reading this and you you feel like posting a bit of whatever you're working on, go for it.  I'd love to see it!

Title: The Three Curses
Fandom: The Musketeers
Pairing/Characters: Constance/d'Artagnan, Aramis/Athos/Porthos, Fleur/Ninon, Anne/Treville, Richelieu, Louis, Lebarge, Milady, Charon, Flea, Charlotte
Summary: D'Artagnan and Constance are renowned witch (and monster) hunters and their lives are about to become much more complicated.
Rating: PG-13
Length: Very Long (20,321 words)
Disclaimer: Nothing you recognize belongs to me.
Notes/Warnings: This was sort of inspired by Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, but really has nothing to do with it. Seriously, I haven't seen the movie. Beyond that, it's got a lot of ideas from fairy tales (and ideas that seem like they should be from fairy tales), but it's not based on any one in particular.  It has canon typical violence, captured by my unusually bad hand at action sequences.
Excerpt: “And then they lived happily ever after,” Constance said. “That was how the storyteller ended it, right?”
D’Artagnan hardly remembered the storyteller now. He and Constance had been little more than children then- hungry, lost, and desperate enough to make a little coin that they had sold the tale of how they had escaped from the witch who had kidnapped them both to a storyteller for the price of dinner. They had consequently lost all rights, in perpetuity, to tell anyone the tale. This had left them to lamely answer- whenever someone asked them how they knew so much about witches, warlocks, and monsters- ‘… because?’ Constance was morally opposed to paying money to watch someone who wasn’t even there tell their story, but they had seen his show once. As d’Artagnan recalled, he had ended it with that very line.

I'm caught up with Britain on The Musketeers because the BBC keeps having hiatuses and so far BBCA hasn't- who knows if that will last.

I was all caught up on The Blacklist until today, and I should watch the new episode tommorrow.  I missed Forever and Agent Carter last week because for whatever reason I could not get reception on that station for anything.  I watched both this week and went back and watched the episode of Forever that I missed.  I haven't been able to get up the energy for Agent Carter, though.  I just don't love it, and the kind of militant "watch this show or it will be your fault it failed" attitude I've seen over the internet about it is making it even harder to watch, frankly.  I don't even really have much to say about it.

The Blacklist )

Forever )

The Musketeers )

I also watched Death Comes to Pemberley recently.  Could it have been much more like fanfic?  I mean, I knew it was.  I knew it was a mystery P.D. James wrote with characters from Pride and Prejudice- but I don't mean the general premise.  I mean all the angst and the unnecessary romantic misunderstandings (which I assure you I ate up with a spoon).  Fanfic, I tell you.

Has anyone been watching Sleepy Hollow?  How's it doing?

I've been making The Musketeers icons for the [livejournal.com profile] musketeerstills weekly challenges.  Some of them are better than others, but I'm definitely learning a lot.

Anyway, I keep telling myself to post them here and then forgetting, but here are the results from the first five challenges.

From [livejournal.com profile] a_phoenixdragon, When you see this, share 3 random snippets from 3 WIPs

So, I had a stupid little argument with myself over whether or not to do the "I'm really proud of the snippet.  You liked it?  Well, tough luck sucker because that's all I have written of that fic" version of this meme, but I drew the line.

These are all from stories that are at least 80% done and may will surface not too long from now.

An Accidental Engagement- The Hobbit, Bilbo/Thorin )

Something Blue- Once Upon a Time, Belle/Rumplestiltskin, Doctor Who AU sequel )

The Three Curses- The Musketeers, Aramis/Athos/Porthos + Constance/d'Artagnan, Fairytale AU )

Look, they even have titles! (I'm so bad at titles it's not even funny)

It's time it's back!  I won't be able to watch it until tomorrow, but I'm so damn excited.  I got a season pass on itunes and I know I'll get the first episode on the 3rd, but I keep checking my email, going, "It's January 3rd in England by now, damn it, give it here."

I shall abstain from the internet until I have seen it.

Title: What Comes Next
Fandom: The Musketeers
Pairing/Characters: Aramis/Athos/Porthos (from established Aramis/Porthos), d'Artagnan
Summary: Between "Knight Takes Queen" and "Musketeers Don't Die Easily" the boys get on the same page (in more ways than one).
Rating: NC-17
Length: Medium (10,221 words)
Disclaimer: These characters don't belong to me.
Notes/Warnings: I'd done the natural amount of speculating, regarding the actual pre-1x10 conversation where the guys work out who knew what when, but it wasn't until I rewatched "Commodities" that I had a real light bulb moment regarding a possible sticking point. And thus this fic was born.
Excerpt: Athos looked dazed, as he often did when confronted by strong emotions. Aramis knew from experience that the only way to keep Athos from retreating into his head- and from thence a bottle- when he was like that was to give him something to do or someone to worry about.

Title: Moment of Truth
Fandom: The Musketeers
Pairing/Characters: Aramis/Athos
Summary: A confrontation after "Musketeers Don't Die Easily" ends.
Rating: NC-17
Length: Short (3,167 words)
Disclaimer: These characters don't belong to me.
Notes/Warnings: I’m just a posting demon right now. The explanation is that I tend to hoard finished fics, flailing around about how they could be better- but with the new season coming up I’m finally making myself post them.
Excerpt: “You have put yourself, and me, and most likely Porthos and d’Artagnan by association- to say nothing of the Queen- in a great deal of danger. She is reasonably safe from the Cardinal now, but should he find anything that could be construed as proof that this child is not the king’s…”

“It’s not as if we wrote each other love letters.”

“At this point, Aramis, I am putting nothing past you.” As he watched Athos now, Aramis slowly realized that the look in the throne room had been an aberration. Athos was actually much, much angrier than he had let on then.
