    Summary

    Dr. Derek Hale is one of the most qualified musicologists in the country. He’s damn proud to be one of the most sought-after specialists in the world; he’s done his fair share of travelling to colleges all over the country to to give insights on the musical structures of some of the most famous pieces of classical literature.
    While he can't really play any of those pieces, he does have a particular choice of pianist when it comes to listening. Mieczysław. Derek likes to think he’s in love with the guy, even though he isn’t sure if Mieczysław is a first name or a last name or even a name at all, and he's never once gotten a glimpse of the pianist’s face. It’s about the music, the money-makers, and the guy’s hands are plastered on everything.
    The only other pianist who may be well on his way to being as talented as Mieczysław is a student by the name of Stiles Stilinski. He's just come back to school after a semester off and is now taking an independent study with Derek, who's trying desperately not to fall for his student. There's one peculiar thing; Stiles always has his hands mostly covered by fingerless gloves, yet still, Derek swears he's seen them somewhere.

    “What do you think?” Luke asks his nephew. “She has potential.”

    “She bit me, Master,” is Ben’s stiff response. “Any opinion I give would be biased.”

    Or: Everyone is connected, even if, sometimes, it's just by the skin of our teeth. Even in the midst of darkness, still, luminous beings are we.

    Summary

    “My mommy's name is Nim. I'm Arthur. Like the king of Camelot,” Arthur bragged.

    Merlin gasped in excitement. “My name's Merlin!” he said, beaming. “And my mommy—she says Merlin was a wizard and King Arthur's best friend!”

    Arthur frowned in thought. “D'ya think we should be best friends, then?”

    “I dunno. You're kind of mean.” Merlin told Arthur matter of factly.

    “Well your ears are weird.”

    Merlin's hands flew to his ears. “They are not!” he squawked.

    “It's okay,” Arthur assured him, “this makes us even. So are we best friends?”

    Or:

    Arthur and Merlin literally collide when they are five years old. From there, they slowly, stumblingly grow into their connected destinies as the king and his wizard. Written for Paperlegends 2013.
