    Summary

    Merlin gets new glasses. Apparently he looks like a whole new person, because his boyfriend doesn't even recognize him! Or maybe it's just that Arthur is a bit thick sometimes.

    Summary

    When Merlin loses Arthur, he doesn't think of all the people who lose him. Or the people he will lose - and gain, and lose - in the meantime.

    Summary

    It wasn’t that he was jealous, per se. He knew that Arthur had obligations, political relations to maintain, things that were expected of him by his father. He knew that what they had together couldn’t yet be taken outside of the small spaces they shared behind closed doors, that Arthur couldn’t have swept a servant out onto the dance floor before all and sundry. He knew that Arthur loved him and that all those dances with pretty ladies meant nothing.

    But it still stung a bit that he’d barely been able to catch Arthur’s eye all night.

    Summary

    Merlin was halfway to beating his high score on one of those ubiquitous bubble-popping games when the bell jingled. The door was open and slammed shut before he could even close out the app, and he looked up to see a woman in a hoodie and shades with her back pressed up against the door like she was holding it shut against a hoard of zombies.

    The woman pulled her sunglasses off, lovely green eyes looking a little bit frantic, and said: “Hide me, please.”

    Merlin could never say no to that.

    Summary

    “You fancy ladies, you say?”

    “So what if I do?” Freya asked through gritted teeth.

    Old Man Em just nodded to himself, like he was pleased with her answer—not a response she had ever gotten before. Then he brought a hand up to stroke his beard contemplatively and said, “What about castles? How do you feel about those?”

    “They’re...fine?” she said slowly.

    “Ladies in castles?”

    “Why are you asking me all these questions?” Freya demanded, horrified to feel a blush creeping up on her cheeks at the leading tone in Em’s words.

    Summary

    It was bad enough that Merlin woke up in a field out of town missing five months' worth of his memories, but it was even worse coming back to find that his best friend couldn't stand him anymore and no one knew why. Reconciling with Arthur would be a lot easier if things were simple, but things in Merlin's life rarely are, and regaining his memories is only making things more difficult -- and more dangerous.

    Summary

    Merlin's hold on his throne is secure and his people love him, but now he must determine who is responsible for Aithusa's stunted growth and injuries. With magic now legal in Camelot, Arthur struggles to maintain good relations with the other monarchs.

    Summary

    By the time Merlin began tracing color onto Arthur’s mouth, Arthur was certain he was standing closer than he needed to. The drag of the brush against his parted lips was torture when Arthur had a sudden and intense desire for something else to take its place. From the way Merlin was biting his own lip again, he didn’t think he was alone in that.

    "Upon a grassy knoll the two did stand
    When nigh the Summer Solstice was at hand.
    The reigning King stood tall before his foe
    While winds of Fate around them both did blow."

    Summary

    Secret Santa Prompt: "We had sex at the office party but we’re both workaholics so we don’t normally date!"

    They don't normally DO this. Any of this, really. The drunk office sex, the awkward dancing around each other, the-- Okay, maybe they do the awkward part pretty often, but the rest is rather new. Thank god for mistletoe, even if it's recycled. It still works the second time around.

    Summary

    Merlin was squinting at him, concentrating very hard. Arthur waited for him to say whatever it was he was thinking so hard about.

    What he finally got was, “Fight me.”

    Arthur was hard-pressed not to laugh out loud. Merlin looked so determined, his chin up and eyes narrowed, but he was obviously still high as balls.

    Summary

    "At one point she stumbled into the lap of a pretty boy with blue eyes and so she kissed him, as was completely natural and correct to do in these situations. Though he seemed surprised to find himself with an armful of girl, he recovered admirably and helped her fix the sit of her crown before she noticed his boggling blond friend seated beside them.

    'Fair is fair,' Gwen said, putting her hands on his shoulders and nodding solemnly. Then she kissed him, too, and might’ve slid to the floor if he hadn’t caught her."

    -Wherein Arthur and Merlin's date is interrupted by a very drunk and very pretty birthday girl and Gwaine is definitely not invited to the threesome.
