So, lovely MumsnetHQ, on the 2 Jan The Musketeers are back for season 2. With extra added Marc Warren to make up for the lack of a Capaldi.

We are sure you'll agree that they will be just the thing to brighten up and decorate those cold January Friday nights. We were wondering <bats eyelashes and does pleading eyes> if we could get a Musketeer emoticon to celebrate? So that we can brighten up and decorate the thread once the Christmas decs come down?

We are on thread 80 (ish) and still going strong - though we do appreciate that we are possibly more trouble than we are worth at times hmm. Please, with cherries on top?

If Woolly Hugs can't have their [star] then there shouldn't be any more emoticons. Especially for less worthy causes.

Can I lope in from a totally unrelated, but somewhat Gallic-oriented bit of MN and say that, with all the perving over appreciation of the fine acting of Tcheky Karyo, it might be a something to use on that thread too.

(But it would need to appear in less than a fortnight to fit in with the remaining episodes.).

'Twas the month before S2 starts,
And all through the inn,
Wenches were stirring and
Finding a grin.

For soon their evenings,
Would be improved
My the arrival of Aramis
Who likes a good brood.

And Porthos, Athos,
Dog and the team,
Not forgetting the Cardinal,
Who makes us dream

Of leather clad men with swords and beards,
Whose presence is all we are wanting New Year.

Our threads will be filled with much merriment and fun,
And wenches could do with an emoticon.

So please consider our wish dear MN techs
Musketeers one for all, and to all a goodnight.

I agree with everyone else on here except that NOBODY can make up for the lack of Capaldi

PLEASE HQ - we know you are the best technical minds on the planet as well as being the most wonderful, kind human beings and we love you all very much smilewineflowerscake

LiviaDruscillaAugusta Wed 03-Dec-14 17:20:47

i could post a pic of the divine Peter Capaldi along with one of my poems if that would help persuade you????

SantisLittleHelper Wed 03-Dec-14 17:41:04

IntheBleakMiladyBeeeWinter Wed 03-Dec-14 17:57:28

Please mumsnet, please!!!! You must admit it's deserved for mrsmintons epic poem alone???

Please, please make us a little fleur de lys emoticon for series 2. It will be easy and take no time at all, no???

<kitten eyes>

We will also promise not to let livia post any capaldi poetry.

Owl <to the tune of twinkle twinkle>

Wooly hugs deserve a star,
Their kindness to others goes so far,
Knitting and sewing with such care,
Their love for others they do share,
Wooly hugs deserve a star,
Their kindness to others goes so far,

Plllleeeeeaaaseeee a [star] and a [musketeer]

Two christmas wishes...
Go on...
It's the season of goodwill...
And we've been awful good...
