After two days of perfect weather, the rain is now pouring down. The forecast says only until Noon, so I thought I could use that this to finish this fic, which was annoyingly “almost finished” when my vacation started. I’m quite pleased with it, even if I surprised myself with writing a love story with a happy ending. Well, a happy-ish love story anyway, the hero really isn’t a hero and even if he behaves himself here, he hasn’t really redeemed himself. I’m not all that much into the trope of a bad guy being bad to everyone but that one special person, and here I am having written something that at least rubs shoulders with that trope. I must be turning soft in my old age.

Word Count: 1642
Chapter: 5/5

Warnings: Mentions of blood.
Summary: Fabien Marchal kills for the King. Claudine Masson saves people’s life. They are very different, but both search for truth.
AN: I started to write this fic after watching episode 5 which made me think there was an interesting dynamic between Fabien and Claudine. Two very different persons but who both serve the King. I was very happy when the rest of the season provided a few more scenes between them.

This chapter takes place during episode 8, after Marchal has gone to Claudine for help. The remedies Claudine prescribes are actual 17th century medicines. I used The London Practice of Physick, Or The Whole Practical Part of Physick by Thomas Willis, Thomas Basset and William Crooke, published 1685 as a reference.

Chapter 3: No One Must Know of My Presence Here )

I managed to get my husband hooked on Versailles and while he has watched I have been writing and peeked at those scenes I liked best. I have developed a full blown crush on Tygh Runyan, while I’m at it.

Chapter 2: The King’s Doctor, At Once )
scripsi: (Default)
I slept for 12 hours straight and woke up with a cold. So I have spent the day in bed with my husband’s laptop and assorted cats.

I know it’s pretty boring to read fics from a fandom you don’t know anything about, so I don’t expect many of you have an interest in this fic. But if I’m wrong, the characters are Louis XIV’s Head of Security, a ruthless man who seems to be able to do anything for the king. And Claudine is a doctor’s daughter who is a far more skillful healer than her father. It struck me that they are basically the complete opposites of each other, and the fic sprung from that.
