I loved writing this, to me it’s the perfect summer fic: travel and exoticism and sunny places and pirates and political intrigue! Huzzah!

I feel so ridiculously guilty when I make up historical things to fit the purposes of my story (and not like, huge events, but just stuff like, buildings that probably weren’t there)

Key words for research so far: hammam, malta, ottoman empire, conversion to islam, trinitarian order, frigate, brigantine…

Also calculating the distance between Marseille and Malta following a coastal sea route with stops at Genoa and Naples, and the number of days the trip would take factoring in the average speed of each boat, plus stopovers.

Srs bsns. But FUN!

Hurray! The Athos/Aramis Turkish bath fic now has plot, and I kinda found a way to make them do the sex. Big shout-out to my homeboy Suljeman the Fabulous Magnificent and his “”“”“”“”best friend”“”“”“”“” Ibrahim for this breakthrough.
