  5. Summary

    It starts with a phone call. It ends with a headache building behind his eyes, a stranger asleep in his bed, and the cat they may or may not have adopted.

    It is thirteen minutes before four in the morning, and Spock wonders exactly where in the week his life went so drastically off course.

    Summary

    Captain Arthur Pendragon has put together the best team of specialists that the SAS has ever seen, but when his superiors assign Lieutenant Merlin Emrys as his communications officer, Arthur does everything to make him feel unwelcome. Arthur's job is to protect and guide his team through dangerous missions, and he worries that he can't do that when the newest member has a mysterious background and acts suspicious when he thinks no one is looking.

    As their assignments become more dangerous, Merlin can't help but to use his magic to keep his team -- even his prat of a Captain -- safe from threats they couldn't possibly understand. But when they are sent on a undercover operation against a group of zealots intent on a magical apocalypse, Merlin needs to confront his fear of discovery and derision, and to finally trust his team with his secret.

    Arthur and Merlin rely on each other for more than the sake of their mission. The entire world is at stake. When they learn -- from dragons, no less -- that they are prophesied to restore the balance of magic to the world, they fight on regardless of the outcome, because duty, honour and loyalty is a far stronger driving force than destiny.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    I can literally mark my life in terms of before and after I first read this series.

    The world created is UNREAL, but also, impossibly, entirely real - the depth and the work and the JOY that went into crafting this universe amazes and astounds me, and somehow everything comes into a new reality that feels as tangible to me as my own skin. The characters are equally well-developed. This series is 1.2 million words of three different plots rolled into one storyline and carried by an ensemble cast of about 20 MAIN CHARACTERS, and every single one is treated with such love and respect and given so much attention. And the main romance... it's not even a slow burn. It's GLACIAL. It builds to the point where you physically ACHE for something to happen, but also it builds in such a respectful, believable way to the point where it doesn’t even matter if they ever get their act together because you can FEEL how deeply in love they are just from reading it, and long before they even realize that fact for themselves. The same gentle arc of their bond continues once they’re actually together, where they grow deeper and more respectfully tied to the other in a way that doesn't deter from the plot at all - this is not a love story. This is a story where people fall in love, but this is, at its heart, a story about humanity and about magic and about fate and free will and about how sometimes the evil of man is not mankind as a whole, and how sometimes the best parts of us are the parts we allow others to help us carry.

    I’ve many times considered getting a favorite line or phrase of this series tattooed on my body so I can carry it with me wherever I go, but ultimately I never do - I don’t need to. The entire work is tattooed onto my very SOUL. Long after I am dead and gone this story will remain, carved into the bones I leave behind and seeped into the earth I’m buried in.

    “The other thing about iron: it always knows where north is, seeks it. You cannot lie to iron.”

    have you ever wanted to etch a story onto your bones? have you ever read one and wondered if maybe, somehow, it already has been?

    Summary

    “Get in bed, Sam,” Bucky says, his arm grabbing for Sam’s. “Stevie’s gotta wait for you, and you can’t keep our best guy waiting.”

    Steve blushes a little, and it’s the fucking cutest thing, the way he blushes when Bucky calls him “our best guy.” Sam kisses him just for that, and when he pulls away, Steve is smiling like he’s going to put the sun to shame.

    “Shut up,” Sam says, but climbs in and scoots over so Bucky’s arm is slung over him and Steve has space to get in on his side.

    Steve blushes a lot, Bucky fucking loves Costco, and Sam is trying to figure out exactly what the hell Natasha Romanoff might be feeling.
