  3. Summary

    Porthos, a single father of twin girls, meets the love of his life when the twins enroll in a new school. Titles of the fics come from Carol Ann Duffy's wonderful poem 'Ship'

    In the end,
    it was nothing more
    than the toy boat of a boy
    on the local park’s lake,
    where I walked with you.

    But I knelt down
    to watch it arrive,
    its white sail shy
    with amber light,
    the late sun
    bronzing the wave
    that lifted it up,

    my ship coming in
    with its cargo of joy.

    Summary

    "If this is supposed to be some sort of — confession, you're going to need to be more transparent. We just saved the world from atop floating ruins. I'm not feeling particularly subtle."

    I'm a fan of all of this writer's stuff, but this is a favorite.

    Summary

    “Stay. We’ll be good.” It’s almost an apology, and unnecessary really, but something in Aramis’ tone is too magnetic for Athos to dismiss.
    Porthos rears back. “We will?”
    Aramis cants his head, turning first to look at Porthos, then at Athos. “We could… all… be good. Together?”

    Always up for a reread. In constant rotation. Lives on my iPad. Still makes me cry.

    Summary

    D'Artagnan is desperate to win Constance back, but he can't do it alone.

    “After all, what is a kiss? A vow made at closer range, a more precise promise, a confession that contains its own proof…; it’s a secret told to the mouth rather than to the ear, a fleeting moment filled with the hush of eternity… a way of living by the beat of another heart, and tasting another soul on one’s lips.” – Cyrano de Bergerac (Edmond Rostand)
