And yes, it is a (mostly) gender-swapped retelling of The Three Musketeers as a space opera!
Thanks to Grant Watson of the Angriest for sending me a logo, and to everyone who has signed up pledges to the project so far. I was surprised and delighted to reach my $50 a month target so quickly last night, which means I will be writing a Musketeer Media Monday post every month, starting next week! Thanks everyone for your enthusiasm about the concept – it’s going to be a fun ride and I hope many of you come along with it.
Spaceship-naming pledgers will be contacted shortly.
Please comment, link and share!
PART 1: Reasons to Hate Moths
Dana D’Artagnan nosed her Musket-Class dart into the mechanic’s bay on Meung Station, in orbit around the planet of Valour. She hadn’t even glanced at the planet on her approach – planets held little interest for her. This station was the last recharging stop before she reached her destination.
Not for her first time, Dana wished that her Papa had chosen a colour other than bright yellow when he retooled Mama’s creaky old ship for her journey. Dana had a fat enough credit stud that she could pay to have the dart resprayed, but only if she didn’t worry too much about paying the rent for her first month in Paris.
Paris was more important.
