    Summary

    His letter finds her finally. As everything continues to shift, his sprawling handwriting anchors her to a solid point.

    14th December 1635

    Dearest Constance,

    Your letter took only ten days to arrive, but we have been hard at it fighting, and this is my first stretch of quiet time since then.

    Another installment in the long series of wartime correspondence (and other pieces based around the black box that is the Musketeers during the Spanish War).

    Summary

    13 November 1635

    Dear d’Artagnan, or am I supposed to call you Charles now, husband of mine? That’s never going to sit right with me. You’re my d’Artagnan now, as you ever were.

    It has been a very full month since you left us…

    Summary

    Look at this fancy, bloody stupid room and fancy, bloody stupid clothes. You imagined yourself someone who had adventures, and you were just another doll in a different costume, playacting for, for other people. Again.

    None of it was real. None of it!

    And the storm of tears carries her off again. She rather fancies she might break something – something that would make a satisfying sound and a terrible mess. She also knows that she won’t, because. Because.

    ***

    Constance is locked deep in mourning and guilt. What will it take to reach her?

    Summary

    "Wait a minute," Porthos interrupts. "Did you and d'Artagnan break up?"

    "What? No, of course not!"

    "Then why'd you need Athos to be your boyfriend?"

    "Because," Constance tells them, as if she's addressing a particularly slow group of sheep, "my family dislikes d'Artagnan because he's not Jacques Bonacieux. I need to show them how good he is by introducing someone who's much worse than d'Artagnan could ever be."

    "Cheers for that," says Athos sarcastically as Aramis dissolves in laughter beside him.

    Or, Constance just wants her family to accept her boyfriend. Turns out that is more difficult than first expected.

    Summary

    Athos nearly died at the hands of his greedy brother and scheming wife. Left maimed and scarred and suffering physical and mental pain, he lives as a recluse with Constance as his housekeeper and manager, writing under a pen name. His only other relationships are with his few friends, and the people he talks to online.

    Especially one bright, kind woman he meets online, but can never bear to meet in person in case he revolts her.

    When d'Artagnan joins the estate staff at Le Fère, cracks begin to appear in Athos's apparently hard frozen existence, and before long, the glacier of his life is moving fast and forward, bringing changes that he must rise, somehow, to meet.

    Summary

    'Wanna watch But I’m a Cheerleader?' said Aramis, a grin on her face. Porthos gave a delighted laugh.
    'What's that?' Athos said mildly.
    'Oh, my little lesbian.' Aramis said, drawing Athos out of the kitchen with an arm across her shoulders. 'We have so much to teach you.'

    Summary

    Thomas needs to be replaced on the team. Athos bitterly resents anyone who tries. And he really, really hates his ex-wife who's the reason Thomas has to be replaced, but who hasn't had the decency to resign.

    Inspired by but in no way related to the wonderful Une histoire de bleu by ceeturnalia which you should all read immediately because it's amazing.

    Summary

    Athos returns wounded to the Garrison after Grimaud's attack to find only Constance and a suspicious letter from Treville.

    “I can’t see. Read it to me.”

      At the terse command she reaches out and grasps his chin, pushing sweat-soaked hair back from his eyes with her other hand to see the worst of the damage.

    Summary

    Athos Texting is very different from Athos Talking. Constance loves it; she loves it even more when she finds out she's the only one who gets the full brunt of Athos Texting, because that means it's their thing.

    She takes this as permission to save a few. For scientific reasons of behavioral analysis. Also because it's fucking hilarious.

    Summary

    There's a saying in France, told from parent to child as a playful tune disguised as a lesson: "Paris is where The Strange dwell."

    As time passes, this tune develops characters: the Monarch who knows Death; the Cardinal whose hands are as red as his robes; the Crow-Man with a poisonous smile and sparks in his fingers; the Mother-Queen of the Underworld, whose claws are as sharp as her tongue; the faceless Scholar who speaks with a voice of a thousand others; the Creature of the Unknown who lives in the Shadows of the Catacombs; the Only Honest Creature with a tainted past; the Lady who knows all of the Secrets; and the Quixotic born from ashes.

    If you want to survive in Paris, you either become them, befriend them, or you develop quick feet. Yet Athos is not planning on surviving at all; the Strange, however, have other plans.

    Summary

    When Athos showed up at her door, Constance didn't know what to expect certainly not fencing lessons and a mysterious plan to get her away from her husband. She just wishes that he wouldn't keep bringing more musketeers to help.
