  2. Summary

    Basically, what it says on the tin - these are One Shots that are unrelated to each other and can be read alone, though I might continue some of them, some day. Most of them are answered Tumblr Prompts and I'll add to this whenever something new comes up. :)

    And yes, the title is a pun, I'm not sorry.

    Summary

    Merlin and Arthur don't get off on a good start when they first meet at Morgana's posh New Year's party: A literally eyeopening game of Truth or Dare later, they both are glad they won't be seeing each other again.

    Until next year, that is. And the year after that...

    *-*
    My New Year's spin on "Fives Times plus one", featuring more geeky references than anyone might be able to spot and two idiots in love.

    I started this as a pinch-hit but as the original poster came to the rescue and I already had the idea for the story, I gift this to all of you! Happy New Year!

    Summary

    Considering Arthur's future wife will be chosen less for compatibility than for her political value, Merlin may be the only marriage he'll have that won't end in bloodshed or a great deal of fortifying wine.

    Summary

    “I have magic,” he whispers, turning to face Arthur. “I have magic, and I use it for you. Always for you.”

    He keeps his chin tilted up, his spine straight, and a storm stares back. Arthur’s eyes as dark and wild as the sea.

    this raging sea, these summer storms

    “I have magic,” he whispers, turning to face Arthur. “I have magic, and I use it for you. Always for you.”

    He keeps his chin tilted up, his spine straight, and a storm stares back. Arthur’s eyes as dark and wild as the sea.

    He’s not sure he could pinpoint when that look changed: when they’d stopped looking through each other and started looking at each other instead. He’s not sure when he started silently collecting the pieces of Merlin’s secret as if they were a treasure to be hidden carefully beneath his ribs until the time was right.

    Arthur’s heart has always been a glass window for Merlin to peer through, never the sturdy wooden door that seems to deter everyone else.

    “Even if the law was right,” Arthur says quietly, sitting up and curling his hands around the delicate bones of Merlin’s ankles, “even if magic truly was evil, I’d do whatever I must to never see that fear on your face again.” // “I would destroy kingdoms for you,” Merlin chokes out, knowing that it’s true, knowing that he’ll do anything Arthur asks if he asks it in that voice. “All of my magic, all of it is for you.”

    Our Habit of Dreaming by alicephantomwise
    In which Arthur is reborn and Merlin remembers how to live

    When Merlin kisses him, he tastes a bit like the Marrakesh spice markets, a bit like the Sao Paulo sunshine. He tastes like the early morning fog in Beijing and the hazy, late-night incense that hung in the streets of Mumbai. He tastes like old Greek magic and New York electricity. He tastes like snatches of the entire world, sweet and thrilling and amazing, and Arthur had once died for Camelot, but now all he wants is to live for Merlin.
