SPOTTED: Athos de la Fere, cinema golden boy turned tabloid disaster, skulking through Covent Garden with John Treville, artistic director and owner of The Garrison Theater. Perhaps they're in talks for a show? This would be de la Fere's first foray back into the limelight since last year's disastrous divorce (from Anne de Breuil, spotted p. A6). Will it be a comeback, or another crash and burn?

Athos squinted at his phone, lifting his head off his arm and typing back one-handed. [from what?]
A moment later:
[not drunk enough. @ frat party. aramis trashed & dancing like a stripper. help. ur our RA ur contractually obligated to save me]

Aramis finds the keeping of his vow is somewhat harder than the making of it.
Porthos is trying not to burn pasta sauce when he hears his laptop dinging in the living room. He jerks in surprise, and sauce slops over the side of the pan onto the burner. Right away, it sizzles and starts to smoke, but Porthos barely notices. His heart's somewhere up in his throat. Only one person would be Skyping him unannounced at nine at night, and that would be someone nine and a half hours ahead of him with an unpredictable schedule.

Three soldiers over thirteen years.
The series title comes from Ovid, and was initially used in a letter written in a later chapter of "penelope did this, too." The Ovid got cut, but it still felt appropriate for the clandestine nature of this polyamorous relationship--
Dicere quae puduit, scribere iussit amor: "Love commands me to write what I was ashamed to speak."
