morethanonepage said: *laughs* That post was 100% about Treville, actually. Like my roommate and I were on that episode where it turns out he's ~maybe shady~ and I was like "Oh no, I hope he's not a bad guy, because I like him so much!" and she was like, "Yeah, I KNOW you do." Because. I always do. Stupid older cop guys who take care of their people, WHYYYY must I love them so.
OMG I did the same thing with my roommate. The whole ep I was like ‘Noooooo Treville can’t be evil, he’s my secret favourite’ and she was just ‘OH REALLY I WONDER WHY’.
I also really, really loved the Duchess of Savoy for some reason, which sucks because there is pretty much nothing for her in the ‘the musketeers’ tag, even in the gif sets that are meant to be ‘the ladies of the musketeers’. She’s always getting left out, it’s like those annoying gif sets that include Loki but exclude Clint and/or Natasha.
I loved the ~maybe shady~ episode because of the way that Porthos and Athos both absolutely refused point blank to even consider that Treville was guilty. I maybe kind of ship Treville/Porthos and Treville/Athos a bit because of that…
LMAO, we really are so predictable, though.
The Duchess was super cool! In general there’s a lot of really interesting ladies, which is nice to see, especially ‘cause you’d expect a lot less of that in a show about The Musketeers. And they’re not all just wives! They’re spies and assassins and housewives! It’s a good time.
Ugh I was thinking to myself, there’s no one I really ship Treville with, which is REALLY DISAPPOINTING because I want him to be happy. He’s got to have someone nice and cute on the side to take care of him when he goes home for the night. Or he’s that typical workaholic police captain who’s ~married to the job~, I guess. BUT STILL. Also having a good ship would mean more fic focused on him, of which there doesn’t seem to be any :(
Me/Captain Treville OTP.
(I love how much of a cop show the whole thing is, though. I keep expecting him to call those four dorks into his office and demand their badges and guns.)
I do like how they seem to have realised that what with the four main guys, King Louis, the Cardinal, Captain Treville, etc, there is a whole lot of dude in this show, to only 3 recurring ladies, so they try to offset it with a lot of guest starring ladies.
I read a nice fic about Treville and Queen Anne being secret buddies who bonded over romance novels, it was ADORABLE. (I have a LOT of feelings about the Treville and Anne relationship, that basically boils down to: he may lead the King’s Musketeers but he’s also the Queen’s Musketeer. Not in a sexy way though.) But yes, there is a lack of Treville-centric stuff.
It is such a cop show, especially episode 5 (are you that far yet, I’m not sure and don’t want to spoil anything). Very CSI: 1630s Paris.
