By Sunlight, By Candlelight (The Musketeers: Athos/Aramis, Athos/Porthos, Porthos/Aramis; R)

Hi, everybody!

I seem to keep falling into these fandom frenzies, in which I need to write a story or two just to stop the characters from taking up every corner of my mind. There's more Losers and Selfie and Sherlock fic coming too, but for now, have the first (of maybe two?) story I've written for The Musketeers (the BBC show). It's set pre-series (so, pre-d'Artagnan) and has each man narrate his own section of the story. The fic features an Athos/Aramis one-night stand, Athos pining for Porthos, Porthos falling in love with Aramis, and Aramis coming to a belated realization. The fantastic and talented killabeez was my wonderful beta on this piece. The quotations in Aramis's section of the narrative are from the Song of Songs. Before they were the Inseparables, they were three Musketeers, learning each other by day and by night.

As always, I'd love to hear what you think.
