D--> Does anyone here read Homestuck?
D--> Because the pale dynamic of the group is so STRONG!
D--> Aramis <> Porthos
D--> Athos <> d'Artagnan
D--> I mean, within a few episodes Athos told d'Artagnan about his wife.
D--> If that scene outside the burning house wasn't an impromptu feelings jam, I don't know what is.

D--> Also, my headcanon is that the Musketeers are a blueblood organisation on Alternia.
D--> Aramis is cerulean.
D--> Porthos is teal, but managed to get in on hard work etc.
D--> Athos is pretending to be an indigo-blue blood, but is in reality a violet-blooded seadweller. With his face fins torn off or otherwise removed, and wearing coloured contact lenses to conceal his eye colour.
D--> I think d'Artagnan is an an olive blood, but they'll manage to circumvent the rules somehow to let him in.

I'd be happy to create a delicious account to keep track of fills if people would like and it's OK with the mod?

Hey guys, I don't know how to ask about this but I posted the 2nd chapter of my fill 'Not A Tragedy' on the first page of the prompts post in the wrong place lol. I posted it right the second time but as it's anon I can't deleted the incorrectly posted entry. It's under the Omega verse prompt, you'll see that chapter 2 for some reason is posted above chapter 1, chapter 2 is also posted below chapter 1 which is correct so the first one needs to be deleted. Does that make sense :S

Terminology Question

Anyone know if the knives they hold in their left hands when fighting have a special name?

I think you're fine just going with "dagger."

Here's a fencing guide from around that period: http://www.thearma.org/Manuals/swetnam.htm

Caveats: it's English, not French, and it's gentlemanly duelling, not the punch them in the face/kick them in the balls style the show likes. However, it's not bad for terminology etc.

I've finished my fill, but I'd like to get it checked by a beta before I post to AO3. Does any one know where I could find one for this fandom?

The Issue of Infidelity

Date: 2014-03-18 09:19 pm (UTC)
From: (Anonymous)
I ship d'Artagnan and Constance, I love their interaction, and I want them to have fun and laugh and practice weapons and have adventures together - but I didn't want them to actually have sex.

Because much as I ship them, Constance is married, I didn't want her cheating on vows she willingly took. And for the same reason, while I'm buried in Constance feels after episode 8, I can't really hate her husband for wanting her to break it off with d'Artagnan, because she's his wife and she's cheating on him.

Similarly, I loved Aramis and Porthos seducing widows, because it was fun and everyone knew what the rules were, but I really hope Aramis doesn't actually sleep with the queen.

While Constance technically willingly married Bonacieux, she didn't have a great deal of choice. She wouldn't have had the same earning potential as a man, and as a spinster wouldn't have been able to leave her family.

Bonacieux surely didn't marry her believing she did/would love him. I didn't get the impression at all that he was upset and hurt that his wife was unfaithful, rather jealous and angry that another man touched his property. After all, he wasn't protesting that he'd been faithful to her. And it's not as if Constance can divorce him.

I don't think it's fair to condemn her for trying to find happiness in a society heavily skewed against women.

But I don't condemn her.

I love Constance, I just hate infidelity. I get why she acts the way she does, but I find it squicky that we as viewers are intended to support cheating.

I'm not annoyed at Constance, I'm just annoyed at the writers, and I wish there was an option that allowed for happiness without dishonesty/cheating.

It's strongly implied that she was arranged into that marriage, that she didn't want. So how did she willingly take those vows? I get the cheating squick. That's why I stopped watching Hawaii 5-0, but I think in a time period where women were trapped with no choice, I don't have a problem with supporting her trying to find a little joy in a life of drudgery.

It seemed she was seeing or realizing unhappiness in retrospect only? Because she said to her husband she didn't think she was unhappy until d'Artagnan came.

I don't know? It's compounded by the circumstances and fallout of discovery, as well, which is why I'm dreading the results if Aramis and Queen Anne consummate anything.

But her BFF in Rebellious Woman said she didn't want to be forced into a loveless marriage to a man she hates like Constance was. And the best Constance could come up with was that she didn't hate him. I don't hate lots of people I wouldn't want to be married to. (And when trying to get away from an angry man who has absolutely power over you, you probably SHOULD say that you weren't unhappy from the get go. It's not scene overwhelmed with reliable narration).

Aramis was cheating with a woman last episode, and with Adele first episode (not married, but def with someone who expected her not to sleep around!). Adele was actually the most actively cheating person so far, in that she's the only one who's clearly had a vote in her relationship. Queen Anne certainly didn't.

I can see why you have a problem with it, but I also see why neither the show nor most of fandom does.

For the love of God, never read the book, is all I can say.
