YB Fanfic: "Salt Its Tail"

I wrote "Salt Its Tail" for femgenficathon 2011 to the prompt:
“One needs something to believe in, something for which one can have whole-hearted enthusiasm. One needs to feel that one’s life has meaning, that one is needed in this world.” — Hannah Senesh (1921-1944), WWII commando and poet
.  Though I've loved Young Blades since its too-short run in 2005, this is the first time I've written it.  This prompt called out for YB's Jacqueline, the farmer's daughter who masquerades as a disinherited nobleman in order to join the Musketeers.

Thanks to [personal profile] celli for beta-reading!  Knowing I was against a wall, she improved the ending in time for the deadline, even though she's never seen the show.

I tried to make "Salt Its Tail" accessible for readers who haven't seen YB.  If you choose to read the story, might you do me the favor of sharing your opinion?  Did it work?  (Would you be interested in more YB in the future?)
