"What did I tell you about thinking before you act?"
"I couldn’t help it. I’m not like you."
"You are. More than you know."

#musketeersedit#athos#d’artagnan#the musketeers#athosings#my gifs#gah these two#it’s beautiful to see how d’artagnan just scaled the walls athos built around his heart#athos doesn’t allow a lot of people to do that#he has so much to give#a lot more than he thinks#but life has made him careful#the greatest gift athos has to give is his trust#to athos trust is the most important part of love#those he trusts he trusts with what is left of him#and perceptive as he is he didn’t need long to see d’artagnan’s honesty and goodness#through the layer of intemperance and overconfidence#and maybe he was reminded of a younger and purer version of himself#without the scars running criss-cross over his soul#and from the start he has looked out for him and helped him#because he saw the potential in d’artagnan#and he understood his need to find a new home and a new family /so well/#and because that’s what he does for the people he trusts and cares about#he projects all his positive energy outwards and keeps none for himself#d’artagnan’s arrival was like a breath of fresh air to him#because he could focus on helping him and teach him things he actually knew something about#and it was never his intention for d’artagnan to look up to him so much#but he did#and though he’d probably deny it#it encouraged athos to be the best he could be
