Stream of Consciousness, Episode 10.2

So, there were definitely several moments of enjoyment in this one, but taken as a whole, I have a request for the writers when it comes to S11...

Stream of Consciousness, Episode 10.19

Oh, these boys. There's a song by Augustana called, "Either Way, I'll Break Your Heart Someday," and I'm pretty sure that is their ballad to us.

But first, a PSA. As you may recall, I started a 2nd role in January. Recently, I was asked to take on a 3rd role and thus work is eating me alive, the end. Seriously, though, it's more or less temporary as I get things aligned for someone else to, hopefully, step in.

Why should you care about that, you ask? Well, I'll tell you.

Because of Job Number 3 and Job Number 2, I have to do a bit of traveling in the coming weeks. I'll be in Chicago the week of May 4th and in London the week of May 18th, which means the Rambles for episode 21 and (*gulp*) 23 will be late. I'll have to wait until I can download the epi on my Kindle (usually two days after), so you'll see the Ramble on the weekend, probably. More than likely, I'll also be late replying to your comments -- BUT! I don't want you to NOT comment just because I'll be late. I love to hear from you and as you've seen, others who read the Ramble also read what you have to say.

So, please be patient with me, come back, read, chat, angst, pass tissues, spill the popcorn salt, whatever we must to survive the ending of our beloved Show's 10th season together. Okay, enough of that. Let's Ramble On, shall we?

Stream of Consciousness, Episode 10.18

Okay, remember a few Rambles back when I said that I really needed them to start pulling the loose ends of these multiple story lines together? I think they heard me.

Okay, I liked this one, you guys. I know - you're shocked, right? ;)

Stream of Consciousness, Epi 10.16

After seeing the name for this episode, I was really hoping to hear some Rolling Stones in the "THEN" Still, I love a ghost hunt as much as the next guy.

Hope that this is a bit more 'on time' for you after the lateness of the Ramble for 10.15, The Things They Carried. I may even get to post on Wednesday night next week; yesterday was the hubs' birthday and I really couldn't bring myself to pick Dean Winchester over him, you understand.

So, let's Ramble, shall we?

Stream of Consciousness, Epi 10.15 (belated)

Hi all! Welcome back from the latest hiatus!

First, let me extend my apologies for being so late with this Ramble. My family and I were on a road trip from KS to AZ last week during my daughter's spring break. Much of that time was spent rather "off the grid" so I wasn't able to post anything. I didn't see this episode until Saturday when I was able to download it from Amazon, and with the return trip and re-entry into the 12-hr work day, this is the first I've had to Ramble. Because of that, this will be a bit brief, but I'll work to get back on track this week. If all goes well, I should be able to post on Thursdays, moving forward.

As far as "The Things They Carried" is concerned, it was a good MotW to ease us back into the swing of things, I thought.

Title: The Details [Link to story on AO3]
Fandom: The Musketeers, BBC
Author: gaelicspirit
Characters: d’Artagnan, Athos, Porthos, Aramis, OCs – GEN
Rating: PG-13
Words: 62,775
Disclaimer: Nothing you recognize is mine. Including the odd movie line; I tend to work familiar quotes in where I can.

Summary: Set S1, directly after Episode 8, The Challenge. Each man has his demons. Facing them separates the brotherhood; overcoming them takes a united front.

Author’s Note: I wrote this basically because I wanted to see the impact losing his farm had on d’Artagnan, but then found out that I had to unravel each of them a little bit. This could be considered a sequel to my story, Broken Places, even though it takes place several months later. It’s not necessary to read that story to understand this one; however, it does return the characters of Luca and Talia Thibaut briefly to the mix. I’ve worked to frame up their involvement so that you need only read and enjoy.

I was originally trying to get this finished before S2 premiered in the US, but, well…life. And then, because I have a thing about completing the whole story before I start posting in this fandom, I started to get worried I wouldn’t have it done before S2 ended! Seriously, this one blew up on me a bit in length, but it’s been a great journey for me as a writer. Hopefully it will be for those who read as well.

This one is for the readers who enjoy some plot with their h/c. I hope you’re entertained.

A very sincere thank you to my dear friend thruterryseyes who willingly gives my stories a sanity read before I post. You’re my safety net.

Stream of Consciousness, Epi 10.14

For the first time in about four seasons (maybe more), our Show made me cry. Not just feel like crying. Actual. Tears. That was excellent.

Stream of Consciousness, Episode 10.13

So I've decided that after a decade of stories about two complex, intriguing characters, writing of complex plots doesn't have to really matter so much.
