Fandom: The Musketeers, BBC
Characters: d’Artagnan, Athos, Porthos, Aramis, OCs – GEN
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.
