Wandering about the FFL

1. I can see I had better not try rereading The Three Musketeers. Last time I did (uhh, 30 years ago would that be?) I was astonished to find them all so *young*. Athos was my age! And I always did wonder about that reaction to his wife's brand, which struck me as weird when I first read it at 13-- why did he do that? Why didn't he wait till she'd recovered to ask her why she was branded? But nope-- OMG I married a convicted thief, I shall hang her at once!
