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.

[Text message: Porthos]
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]
Junior year at Dumas University: Greek parties, fencing meets, and hopelessly being in love with your best friends. Typical season, really.
Aramis hides it well, but not being able to return to duty bothers him. He hates that Athos, Porthos, and d'Artagnan are out risking their lives and he can't be there to back them up.
Constance knows the feeling. She's intimately acquainted with it, in fact.

"Just say something," Athos sighed.
"I'm thinking!" Aramis protested. "I've done a lot of things, okay, I'm having a hard time coming up with a good one."
This was rapidly turning into simultaneously one of the best and worst games of Never Have I Ever he'd ever played. Best, because he was learning oh-so-many terrible, horrible, wonderful things his friends had done.
Worst, because he was losing badly.
"Aramis," Athos says, and his voice is strangely even. Aramis looks down at him, hanging by Aramis' arm and one hand on fragile, crumbling stone, and no one should look as calm as Athos does under these circumstances. He's put his defenses back up, his face careful and guarded, and Aramis knows he's going to hate whatever's about to come out of Athos' mouth. "Aramis, let go."
Well. He was right about that.
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."
