This is the post where you get to chat.

Talk about anything you want, Musketeers related or not.

Be respectful, do not start wank and drama. If something does arise, please send a message to the account. I'll get to dealing with it as soon as possible.

This meme is an original vs. adaptations argument-free zone.

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?

Incorrect posting, my bad :(

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

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

Anyone have links to good icons? I've found a couple people doing them, but am always on the lookout for more.

Where do I find a beta?

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.

Has anyone read the newer translations of the Three Musketeers? Is it easier to read? Closer to the original intent? Is it not really any different?

It's html is not correct. I've reposted a clean copy.

Aramis/Porthos- Story through wounds.

Date: 2014-03-23 08:49 am (UTC)
From: (Anonymous)
Based on Aramis' pillow talk with Adele and his bragging about Porthos' stitches, Aramis likes to know/talk about the wounds he and others have received. I was thinking it would be nice to see a story told through scars. Aramis and Porthos getting to know each other by chatting about how they got their facial scars. Porthos bragging about getting a bruise in a brawl and Aramis bragging about love-bites and scratches he's received. Neither of them talking about the new marks on their bodies because they know exactly who gave them to each other and how.

Just felt like introducing a nice chat. Namely, so far everyone has been really friendly and awesome (which... the past few memes I've been on, I eventually ditched because the drama was insane, so good on all of you!), and say y'all rock.

So carry on being awesome, writers and readers. ♥

Execution-methods & background

Date: 2014-03-24 06:21 pm (UTC)
From: (Anonymous)
I do know how to start the fun discussions...

Athos was about to be executed via firing-squad. D'Artagnan and Porthos would have been hanged.

My (also only patchy) knowledge of other time-periods (and countries) is that death by firing squad was somehow more honourable and seen as a true soldier's death, unlike hanging which was for everyone. Was that also true for France at that time? If yes it does explain d'Artagnan as he wasn't a Musketeer at the time and also why the ripped off Porthos' emblem/badge before.
But still: why? Porthos and Athos were both accused of cold-blooded murder totally unconnected to anything they did as soldier so where's the difference?
Is there another answer than racism? (Or plot-convenience because the writers considered on the one occasion the firing-squad and on the other the gallows more dramatic?)
Or has it to do with Athos being judged directly by the king as the matter had been brought before him?

MOD - arguing in prompts

From: (Anonymous)
Mod, can you possibly step on the wank in the Anne prompts?

I'm flat memeing and it's a pain to scroll past (and is seriously killing my urge to fill anything for anyone). If people want to wank about prompts they could maybe do it here in the discussion post?

Does anyone know if there's a beta readers resource anywhere for this fandom? I have a kazillion half-written fills that I need checking and/or a boot up the arse about.

So I know virtually nothing about the time period in which I am writing (helllooo, modern AU's) - does anyone know of some good resources for general information about Paris during this time period?

I found this comm through looking for fics for The Musketeers on Ao3, i've not really used this site before.

I was just wondering if there are any more comms on this site with fanfic for the show?

(Also for Atlantis, another BBC show, if anyone knows of any!)

or just generally any fan comms for either. even on livejournal, which i've used a bit in the past (and now seems completely dead compared to back then!)

i just want more fanfic to read. and i have a worry that fanfic will dry up in the year or so it will take for the next series of the show!

From: (Anonymous)
So... uh, the place where I watch most of my TV shows, to put it delicately, has not uploaded the latest episodes, so I haven't been able to watch anything past 1x07.

If anyone should happen to know where one could happen to find the other episodes that have aired, this anon would be eternally grateful.

(I've checked the website and they haven't got them online, unfortunately)

Scene Query

Is there a bit when Porthos sneaks up on Aramis and teases him with his gun? If so, which episode?

Interview with Jason Flemyng

Date: 2014-03-29 01:54 am (UTC)
From: (Anonymous)
Just reading an interview with Jason Flemyng, who plays Vadim, and came across this:

How would you describe your Musketeers character Vadim?

"He's a real proper old-school villain. It was great fun. I don't have a mustache… well, it's an invisible one that I'm allowed to tweak occasionally! I loved it and all the boys I just fell in love with. Luke Pasqualino is amazing - I'm meant to be his enemy but I didn't know whether to smack him in the face or kiss him on the lips."

1. Heh,
2. D'aww,
3. It's a great interview if people are interested. I thought Vadim was an awesome character, and the actor gives a great interview.


What about a Musketeers Big Bang?

Date: 2014-03-29 09:37 am (UTC)
From: (Anonymous)
Just a thought, but would any one be interested in writing for a big bang over the summer/autumn period. I feel like doing something to keep the fandom alive and tide me over during the cold Musketeer-less months ahead.

I've done a couple of big bangs for other fandoms before and they were fun. They also generated a lot of wonderful, long stories and some amazing art work. We have lots of talented people, both in this fandom and on this meme.

What do you think, folks? Would any one else be up for it. Has it been discussed anywhere do you know?

Would anyone be willing to beta a fic (gen) for me?

I would appreciate it if anyone could - nothing too big, and my grammar/punctuation is usually impeccable, so it would mostly be stylistic/characterization/plot elements.

PM me if anyone has the time - and thank you! ♥

I don't fully trust Google translate.

Unfilled prompts on delicious account?

Date: 2014-04-03 12:43 pm (UTC)
From: (Anonymous)
Is it possible to get unfilled prompts put on the delicious account? The meme is now so big it can be a struggle to find specific prompts, and it'd be a shame if ones went unfilled because of it. I think it would be really useful to writers looking to be prompted for specific pairings/kinks, as well (it also might prevent unnecessary repeated prompts).

What's everyone listening to?

For those who write while listening to music.

Gratuity was written to Springsteen on perpetual repeat, especially Streets of Philadelphia and Blood Brothers.

Heir of Dust and Ruin has a wider selection, but highlights include: Richard Shindell's Confession; Cohen's One of Us Cannot be Wrong, Anthem, and If it Be Your Will; Tori Amos' cover of Famous Blue Raincoat; Tom McRae's End of the World News; Melissa Etheridge' Broken Heart Sun and This War Is Over; Cry Cry Cry's cover of Lord, I Have Made You a Place in My Heart, and Shin Seung Hun's Sorry.
