    Summary

    "I'm certain this is not what you wanted from a marriage any more than I did."

    For a second, Joe is on the receiving end of the most intense stare he's ever seen. He almost dares to hope for an argument, something unexpected, then his husband blinks, and he's back to being that blank-faced stranger Joe first met earlier that day. "On the contrary. An advantageous match is all a prince should ever want."

    It was too much to hope that Nicolò might possess wit or charm that he felt free to express behind closed doors. Joe tries to hide a sigh. On the bright side, he thinks, at least it's forever.

    Summary

    Eggsy is on the run. Dean Baker is responsible for his mum’s death, and Eggsy’s only choice is to pack what little they have and flee with Daisy, to the one place his mum told him about his whole life.

    Kingsman is a mob, their cover an elite pub/gentlemen's club, and Eggsy was given a medal - by his mum - 17 years ago with the instructions to find the pub, on Savile Row, and say Oxfords not Brogues. It isn’t until that very day, does Eggsy take it and run, seeking shelter in a posh neighborhood, to a posh pub, filled with posh men who are seemingly more dangerous than their bespoke suits perceive them to be.

    Merlin, now running Kingsman, is the boss - Arthur - under unfortunate circumstances. With their previous King dead, one of their best in a coma, he is left to lead the mob himself, with an unlikely guest running into their pub, turning in a favor that Harry Hart promised the Unwin family 17 years ago.

    While he curses Harry’s name, Merlin can do nothing more but see Eggsy as an inconvenience, during a less than ideal situation. But as time moves on, and Daisy weaves her way into everyone's hearts, Merlin and Eggsy are finding themselves falling in love, in the most unlikely of circumstances.

    Summary

    Everything changed in an instant.

    Merlin was sitting there in his lab, supervising Lancelot’s mission, listening to Eggsy’s feed as Guinevere guided him through whatever he was doing. It was a recon mission, nothing dangerous. It was a conflict of interest for Merlin to handle his missions, now, but that didn’t stop him from listening in.

    The first beep was innocuous, a vague alert. It meant a trap had been triggered, movement had been detected, but nothing was dangerous. Yet. He leaned forward, checking through Lancelot’s screens and pausing when he saw nothing.

    Then the beeping got louder. Higher pitched. Merlin’s heart was starting to beat faster. He hacked into Guinevere’s computer, copying the feed to his computer. The beeps were faster, practically shrieking alarm. Guinevere was speaking too fast for Merlin to follow, because his brain had temporarily shut down. Three of the cameras revealed different heavily-armed security teams heading into the building. The building where just Eggsy was, where no backup could reach him. This time there were no implants that Merlin could activate. Nothing he could do but watch.
