Fic - Gates Of Hell (Musketeers AU)

Rating: 15
Wordcount: 29,577 (in 6 chapters)
Summary: When d'Artagnan goes missing for two days with no memory of where he's been, the efforts of the others to find out what happened to him leads them to a sinister ritual in a disused chapel, an old enemy - and a gateway to hell.
AN: Sequel to Deliver Us From Evil and Devil's Acre.


Fic - Cruise Control (The Musketeers)

Title: Cruise Control
Pairings: Athos/Porthos
Rating: NC17
Wordcount: 28,787 (six chapters)
Summary: Modern day AU, written as a combination of the prompts: "Holiday romance - workaholic Athos has been forced to take a vacation by his boss Treville who books him on a cruise," and "Athos is a grumpy businessman on a plane with the world’s happiest man sitting next to him."


2x Musketeers Fics (Athos/Porthos)

Title: Within A Garden Wall
Pairings: Athos/Porthos
Rating: 15
Wordcount: 29,015
Summary: Porthos works as a gardener in the grounds of a big empty manor house. For months the place is shut up and deserted, but then a man comes to stay in a small cottage by the lake. Drawn to him, Porthos discovers that Athos is recovering from a breakdown, but it may be that not everything is as it seems. Athos is reluctant to talk about what happened or who he is, but when he starts seeing the ghost of his supposedly dead wife, it's up to Porthos to prevent a tragedy.
Content Warning: Attempted suicide by drowning.

Also, I forgot to post this one from February here before:

Fic - Be My Valentine (Athos/Porthos)

Title: Be My Valentine
Pairings: Athos/Porthos
Rating: PG
Wordcount: 2,955
Summary: Modern AU. Porthos has been stood up on Valentine's Day, but it might just be the luckiest thing to ever happen to him.
A/N: I started this last Valentine's Day, wrote the first 500 words, then it languished in my WIP folder until this morning. I get there eventually...

Porthos checked his watch for the fifth time in as many minutes, and sighed.Collapse )

Title: Exit, Pursued By A Bear
Pairings: Dolokhov/Anatole
Rating: NC17
Wordcount: 4,425
Summary: It would end in demotion and disgrace, but both Dolokhov and Anatole agreed it had been worth it purely for the expression on the policeman's face.

It was a riotous crowd that departed Anatole"s house that night in search of further entertainment.Collapse )


Fic - Aftermath (War & Peace)

Title: Aftermath
Pairings: Dolokhov/Anatole
Rating: 15
Wordcount: 1,215

Dolokhov walked between the rows of flapping tents with a growing feeling of apprehension.Collapse )


Fic - The Eve Of Battle (War and Peace)

Title: The Eve Of Battle
Pairings: Dolokhov/Anatole (established relationship)
Rating: 15
Wordcount: 780
Summary: Set part way through episode 5, the night before the battle of Borodino.

Where have you been?Collapse )

Pairings: Dolokhov/Anatole/(Helene)
Rating: NC17
Wordcount: 3,329
Summary: More War and Peace filth. Set after episode 4, following Pierre's confrontation with Anatole. It's all evilmaniclaugh's fault you know.

Having delivered his ultimatum, Pierre stormed out through the Kuragin house barely looking where he was going.Collapse )


3x Athos/Porthos fics

January's fic posted to AO3...

Title: Life's Journey Trod
Pairings: Athos/Porthos
Rating: 15 (at the end), mostly PG
Wordcount: 21,422 (over 4 chapters)
Summary: Written for evilmaniclaugh's prompt of "Musketeers getting older. Athos decides to hang up his boots." After a lifetime's career in the Musketeers, when Athos finally decides it's time to retire from the regiment he's at a loss for what to do next. In the meantime he decides to pay a visit to Porthos, himself recently bereaved and left with two small children and an estate to run. What begins as little more than a social call results in something longer term for all concerned as both men slowly realise their true place is together.


Title: Portrait Of The Artist
Pairings: Athos/Porthos
Rating: 15
Wordcount: 38,083 (over 6 chapters)
Summary: Written for evilmaniclaugh's prompt of "Athos is taking life drawing classes to help him get over his alcohol withdrawal and Porthos is the model." Present day AU. Trying to get his life back together after losing his house and his job through his drinking, Athos is at rock bottom - at least until he meets Porthos. Athos then has to decide whether to risk losing him again by admitting to the addiction he's still struggling with - and that's not the only problem that's about to get in the way of their budding relationship.


Title: The Autumn Of Our Years
Pairings: Athos/Porthos
Rating: 15
Wordcount: 23,766 (over 6 chapters)
Summary: Retirement home AU - it's Porthos' first day in his new surroundings, and while his initial attempts at striking up a friendship go awry, it might be that something lasting will come out of what seems like disaster.

(I was in the middle of writing 'Life's Journey Trod' and somehow this took over - modern day musketeers in a retirement home. If anyone remembers Waiting For God, it's basically an AU of that, with Athos and Porthos instead of Diana and Tom).


War And Peace Fic - Skirmishes

So it's possible I was talked into writing War and Peace filth involving Dolokhov. And incestuous Helene/Anatole. Yeah, I have no defence really. Also I should say I have no knowledge of the events of the book past what we've seen in episode 2; this essentially happens outside the framework of the plot, and will almost certainly be bollocksed by episode 3. But hey.

Title: Skirmishes
Pairings: Dolokhov/Helene, Dolokhov/Helene/Anatole
Rating: NC17
Wordcount: 5,595

it"s mostly snark and screwing to be honestCollapse )


2015 Fic Summary

So in 2015 I posted 439,036 words of fic - 406,723 words of Musketeers fic and 32,313 words of Musketeers RPF (Tom/Howie). I think it's safe to say I was fairly well focussed on one fandom this year...(plus there's around another 30k unfinished and as yet unposted, but that'll go towards next/this year's total).

Including the unposted stuff that's 90k more than last year. A lot of it had to do with the fact I had fuck all to do at work for several months over the summer. I was getting so bored I started to look for another job, but then they gave me a promotion I didn't want, and now my job's stressful as hell and I miss the peaceful days of dullness. I know, some people are never happy...

Anyway, Happy New Year!



Fic - Devil's Acre (The Musketeers)

Title: Devil's Acre
Pairings: Athos/Porthos, Aramis/d'Artagnan
Rating: 15
Wordcount: 42,134 (8 chapters)
Summary: Sequel to Deliver Us From Evil, set a year on. Athos comes into an unexpected inheritance and unwillingly returns to his family seat, accompanied by Porthos, Aramis and d'Artagnan. But there are more dangerous things than unhappy memories waiting for him there, and all four are soon fighting what seems to be the very house itself for safety and sanity alike.


Fic - The Captain's Table (The Musketeers)

Title: The Captain's Table
Pairings: Athos/Porthos
Rating: NC17
Wordcount: 2,985
Summary: Written for evilmaniclaugh's prompt of "Porthos really gets off on the idea of being dominated by his new captain."
AN: Set immediately after S02E10

It had been a long, strange day this oneCollapse )


Fic - Death In Waiting (Athos/Porthos)

Title: Death In Waiting
Pairings: Athos/Porthos (also Aramis/Anne and d'Artagnan/Constance)
Rating: NC17 (briefly, mostly PG)
Wordcount: 56,064 (over 10x chapters, complete)
Summary: 1920's country house murder mystery AU. Porthos has gone to work as chauffeur for Lord Louis and Lady Anne Bourbon. At first life seems good, and he gets on well with his fellow staff - particularly the butler, Athos. But then his employers throw a weekend houseparty and tragedy strikes - and with the amount of intrigue and number of lies uncovered by Inspector Treville it seems that practically all of the guests and staff had both motive and opportunity. And the first death will not be the last.
Warnings: Character death - although to be fair probably no one anyone cares about.
