Porthos: "Heat. Flies. Boredom. I do so love parades. I'm thinking about fainting just for something to do." (I really now want fic where Porthos actually faints, like from blood loss or exhaustion or something, is that so wrong? XD)
Athos: "What's wrong with him?"
Porthos: "Have you forgotten about the massacre at Savoy?"
(Given that this was apparently five years ago, presumably Athos was rather pre-occupied stringing up his wife at that point?)
I like the way nobody ever mentions the poor sod who *actually* gets shot. I mean, did he live? Who was he?! Also, that Marsac is a shit shot. He hit the bloke *behind* his target! XD
"If this gets me hanged, I'm going to take it very personally."
I said last week that Capaldi would make a good Vetinari; this week someone on Tumblr pointed out that Richelieu/Treville give good Vetinari/Vimes...
"He ripped off his uniform and rode away." Sounds - draughty.
D'Artagnan: "I - slipped. Wet grass."
Athos: *side-eyes him with added WTF face*
Constance: You brought a wanted man into my house? A deserter?"
Athos: "Deserter, and assassin."
Yes, thank you Athos, not really helping there XD
Marsac: "Perhaps Athos doesn't care about twenty dead Musketeers."
Athos: "Insulting the man who holds your life in his hands, I see you are a fool as well as a coward."
Marsac: "This is not your business. You're not even a Musketeer."
D'Artagnan: "Apparently, neither are you."
Athos: "If it is true. What then?"
Treville: "Athos is the best swordsman in the regiment." ♥
King Louis: "If we damage her husband, my sister is going to be very upset."
Not as upset as Porthos if you damage Athos...
This might be Aramis' story, but the whole background setting is made of Athos/Porthos and I love it ♥
Porthos: "I'm glad it was you. I'd have cut his bloody head off."
Treville: "You could have defeated him in a way that allowed him his dignity. Go and apologise."
(I love Athos' immediate look to Porthos of 'oh FFS')
Athos: "I have come to apologise. I was over-zealous."
So wet!Athos is a thing.
A nice thing.
Liking the Duchess' approach to child-care. Let them hide, then don't bother searching XD
I also like the fact that the Duchess is a BAMF.
Duchess: *whacks jailor in face with a backhand*
Porthos: "Not your average duchess then."
♥ the fact it's Porthos' plan to swap out the prisoner.
Richelieu: "Paris has a number of excellent places of correction, if you'd like a tour of them all?"
Porthos (holding down the prisoner with a hand over his mouth): "Shhh. Good boy." *nngh*
