Headcanon work of the day, for the Musketeers Temeraire AU: Roger (Athos says it Roger, in the French) is a little black feral dragon whom Athos meets in the steppes, and when Ninon takes Athos back to Britain he starts to pine. He eventually flies to Edinburgh with a bunch of other ferals, where dragon!d’Artagnan is none too pleased by his arrival. In terms of intelligence level he’s on a par with Volly, so he just scampers after Athos a lot and chirps “Art!” when he wants to annoy d’Artagnan. And he’ll be a very proud, dignified sort of little dragon, after all. He’ll serve his master well.

What happens after the Artist!Athos AU? What happens after all of the AUs? They are too loved to be let go so easily.

A

Aw, this is such a nice question! I have a horrible propensity to write very closed-off plots; the pirates AU, in particular, feels entirely done and dusted to me. I can, however, think of lots of small post-fic character moments or new-fic ideas for the Artist!Athos AU and the football AU (especially football - I’ve written so much of that that it could go on forever), and there are a few smaller possibilities for the Cold War AU. 

I’m thinking - with agarthanguide's encouragement - of perhaps doing a snippet chapter where I could do Christmas in each verse, or something, later this year. But in the meantime, let's say: Artist!Athos and Muse!Aramis will fight and break up a hell of a lot, and be brought together again by Porthos luring them both to the restaurant at the same time and each time they'll pretend it's a surprise and fake their anger until they stumble upstairs. MI6!Treville will occasionally drive to Oxford and stop in at the cottage in the middle of Athos giving a local undergraduate a French tutorial, and when Porthos and Aramis get home (from being a porter at one of the colleges and being back in the Service) they'll see an extra dirty wineglass in the sink and Athos will just smile and shrug. Pirate!d'Artagnan will eventually collect some tattoos, but only if Athos and Aramis gleefully hold him down while Porthos works the needle. Constance thinks they're very dashing.

Ooh! Questions! 17! 29! 95!

A

17: When was the last time you laughed until you cried? Yesterday! I was marathoning The Big Bang Theory and the episode where they all managed to get high or drunk in various ways had me in complete stitches.

29: Name something you CANNOT wait for. Everything I’m waiting for has the power to BOTH make me incredibly excited AND make me worry for my health. Exhibit A: teaching for the first time in the fall (so petrified SO petrified). Exhibit B: taking a class with my kick-ass advisor (mustn’t screw up MUSTN’T screw up). Exhibit C: Series 2 of The Musketeers (OH GOD I WILL NEED AND DO NOTHING ELSE FOR FOUR MONTHS HELP). Exhibit D: being In Charge of things in the Department (oh boy). And on, and on…

95: Did you sing today? Hmmm… no, don’t think so! That’s a shame. I hum a lot, though, without really realizing I’m doing it. I’m still stuck on the HTTYD soundtrack, so I probably had those themes going under my breath for most of the day.

35. 37. 89.

35: Most visited webpage? Recently - definitely Tumblr, so help me.

37. Nicknames? I don’t really have any IRL, funnily enough! Or I didn’t; I’ve used my full name for most of my life or occasional shortened versions thereof (Carol, Caro), but suddenly this year I’m known as Caz to a whole bunch of new people, both online and IRL. It’s kinda fun. 

89: Do you believe in Heaven? No.
