Snowflake challenge day 7
Day 7

In your own space, create a fanwork. Make a drabble, a ficlet, a podfic, or an icon, art or meta or a rec list. Arts and crafts. Draft a critical essay about a particular media. Put together a picspam or a fanmix. Write a review of a Broadway show, a movie, a concert, a poetry reading, a museum trip, a you-should-be-listening-to-this-band essay. Compose some limericks, haikus, free-form poetry, 5-word stories. Document a particular bit of real person canon. Take some pictures. Draw a stick-figure comic. Create something. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

I was waiting for this challenge to happen, and what an excellent list of suggestions.

While I was tempted to draft a critical essay about a particular media 1 I'm actually going to do a Musketeers picspam, so you can all see what I've been enjoying.

Plus, I highly suspect I'll be back very soon with a writing prompt post as a second challenge fill, as I do like those. But for now.

1 And if you believe that....

It makes me sad that while I watched The Musketeers when it was on from the start, I never got fannish about it until just before season three was shown. But I got there eventually, so let me show you some Musketeers, and a lot of Aramis who is the prettiest of all.


And again.

Really, he's doing it on purpose now.

That's just unfair!

Monk Aramis. So wrong without the others! But still good with kids.

I have to admit, I'd watch, too.

Oh look, watching again.

Have I mentioned pretty?

The inseparables!

So many things to look at.

Leaning happens often in Musketeer land.

As do direct looks.

I like a bit of Athos/Armais

How could you not?

Such a lovely smile.

And some Porthos/Aramis

Porthos gives good hugs.

They're bros who love each other.

And smile often.

I know it's not a popular opinion in some parts, but I like a bit of Aramis/Anne

And Aramis/d'artagnan is fine, too.

My, what a big belt buckle you have.

I'm also all about a bit of Aramis/Constance. Especially as Constance kicks ass.

But really, I'm all about the gsf

Hello, there!

While Aramis is my favourite, the others are awesome, too.

Really, those are just very attractive men.

Seriously, they are.

And to end, I have to admit, the cast look nice together, too.

Not my fandom, but -- attractive men are attractive. Yes. Good.

They really are!

Very easy on the eye, every one of them.

Such a happy making post! Aramis is, indeed, the fairest of them all ;) Although they're allreally really gorgeous, I agree.

i really love this adaptation (got into it from the start), I think it's one of the best out there because those Musketeers I know from childhood are portrayed in such a lovely way. You can recognise them all at first glance but none of them is a caricature (which is something I dislike in most of tv/film adaptations - especially the US ones). And the love and affection they have for one another is so beautiful to see! Omg. I couldn't get enough of it, really.

I think I've had a Musketeers tab open in my browser ever since I started watching the show and I've just checked the page early one this evening, as a matter of fact ;)

Anyway, all that to say, I 100% approve of this post ;)

Yes! He really is the prettiest, but it's a hard contest. Really, they're all striking to look at.

I agree with every part of your comment. I know they're not completely faithful to the book characters, but they're not miles apart either, and as you say, are completely recognisable.

I just wish I'd got into the fandom, and not just watched the show, much earlier. Oh well, I guess it just means more fic to catch up on.

I'm glad you liked!
