It’s been easier to convince people to hand over half their income, their children to war, and their freedoms in perpetuity - then to engage them in seriously considering how roads might function in the absence of taxation.
I finally did it. Here is the huge, massive, ridiculous, heart-breaking WW1 Musketeers AU fic that I’ve been writing for, oh, three or four years. And this is JUST THE PREQUEL, to the 1920s ex-soldier gardener Musketeers AU that @mausii, @akathecentimetre and @agarthanguide dreamed up so many moons ago.
So, go read it if you like. It’s fun. And angsty. And bloody. And there’s a major character death at the end, but like me, you can just put your fingers in your ears and go “la la la not listening!”. Deaded character is entirely likely to show up again. And oh, it was @mausii‘s idea to kill said character, so, go blame her or something yeah?
