The Count of Monte Cristo

The Count of Monte Cristo

NOTICE: Unfortunately, maintaining these recs pages has gotten to be too much work, given the amount of fic that I read. So from now on, I'll be keeping track of good fics via my AO3 bookmarks and the delicious account Grey Bard started for me.

It's fairly obvious that Dumas was broadly hinting that Eugénie Danglars and her music teacher Louise d'Armilly were lovers. I've collected every fic I could find wherein this subtext was made text. If you know of any I've missed, please email me at
