Here I am, participating in the Fandom Snowflake Challenge because [livejournal.com profile] speak_me_fair is a terrible influence.
Since The Three Musketeers is my One True Fandom, these will all be about that.

The prompt for Day 1 is to do the self-recs, which is, as [livejournal.com profile] zoi_no_miko put it, "Like making me pick my favorite child!" or in this case, three (or more) of my favorite children.  Children, I love you all, you are all equal, but some of you are more equal than others!

1.  "Salve Regina" - this was like crossing the Rubicon!  It had purple poetry, lavender rage, and hot sex on a prie-dieu with involuntary praying.  I mean, c'mon, I rocked it!  *cackles*

2.  "Noisy-Le-Sec" - this one allowed me to play in the "between" space in the musketeer chronology, which I found really liberating!  It was also very satisfying to imagine what such a reunion could potentially be like, how it might go, and who might get punched in the face hardest.  I also worked with [livejournal.com profile] watercrescent on this, in a dramaturgical sense, and that was a great experience too!

3.  "Honey and Oakwood" - this is one of the two cross-overs with "True Blood" featuring Erik the Sexy Vampire.  I think this one really shows off my incredibly bizarre and crack-tastic side.  Also it gave Aramis the opportunity to go up against a vampire, and what former/future priest doesn't want to do THAT?

4.  BONUS - "The Plural of Us" which I co-authored with [livejournal.com profile] zoi_no_miko.  We are brilliantly sick.  That is all.

Day 2's challenge is to rec three works in the fandom that are by ANOTHER, which is obviously a lot easier than praising myself, although don't get me wrong:  I'm fabulous.  Here goes:

1.  The Book of Thoth by [livejournal.com profile] speak_me_fair and [livejournal.com profile] quoshara:  This is the one that started it all for me, that is, by wringing out my very first (Anonymous) LJ comment of all time.  BECAUSE IT IS AWESOME.  I never used to like AU, I did not think you could DO quality musketeer AU, but they proved me wrong in so many ways!  Also, the artwork!  SO COOL OMG, I still squeeeee like a little girl when I think about how great that universe is.  (The prequel rocks my world too!)

2.  The Knock by Xris:  This was apparently a [livejournal.com profile] yuletide fic before I even knew what the heck yuletide was.  But I was lurking like a pro on [livejournal.com profile] andoneforall so I found it magically.  This is still one of my favorite fics in the fandom.  It takes place in my beloved "between" period (i.e. between The Three Musketeers and Twenty Years After), and features a MAGNIFICENT speech form Porthos.  

3.  There once was a person who called themselves "Blue Fenix" but now I cannot find their fics ANYWHERE.  The reason this is noteworthy is that this was some of the first musketeer slash I ever Googled!  My mind:  was blown.  Even though most of it was based on the inferior "The Man in the Iron Mask" film, the writing was excellent!  Blue Fenix:  you were AWESOME.

4.  But since I had no link for 3, I will have to do a bonus 4.  Here are [livejournal.com profile] quoshara and [livejournal.com profile] speak_me_fair again with canon amazingness featuring Rioja, a very brooding Athos, and a very patient Aramis.  I give you:  Sue For Grace.
