    Summary

    Merlin looks skeptical. "You also look too happy. What have you done?"
    "I didn't do anything! Can't I just be happy for once?"
    "Of course, you can," Gwaine interrupts from the doorway. He strides in casually, locking the door on his way in. He drops a chaste kiss to Merlin's lips and walks up to Arthur, crowding into his personal space.

    Or:
    Arthur buys presents for the loves of his life. And they assume different things about what Arthur might be hiding

    Summary

    And one time he didn't.

     

    Series of oneshots that take place after my other work Eternal, which I highly encourage reading before. Could be read as a stand alone, but there are a few references to the first work.

    Summary

    "Shh, shh. Do you hear that?"

    "No...?"

    "Exactly."

    Merlin shoved Arthur in the shoulder, rolling his eyes as they laid next to each other on the damp grass, staring at the cloudy sky. "Don't be a prick."

    Arthur let out a small laugh at his muttered words, and Merlin swore his heart would explode.

    "I love you."

    The laughter stopped. "What?"

    Fuck.

     

    Or

     

    Sometimes, when you're King and Court Sorcerer, a break from the politics and endless work is needed. This night was one of those times. Arthur and Merlin desperately needed a break from the chaos and stress of their respective jobs. So, they set out for a hunting-trip-turned-night-in-the-woods.

    Sometimes, when you're King and Court Sorcerer, you get so exhausted that you lose the ability to think before speaking.
    This day was one of those times.

    Summary

    There was only one slave in all of Camelot. One young man who was discovered to be a holder of magic, had given that specific punishment. He was the Prince's own manservant. The King was mortified and embarrassed to have been the one who gave the warlock a position so close to the throne. He elected that the man should be made into an example. One so poignant that no other warlock would dare pull a similar stunt.

    Summary

    The way that...

    The way that Arthur was always drawn back into the sorcerer, the way he couldn't seem to pull away now. It was like the tugging force of gravity, luring him closer and closer...

    "Arthur?" Merlin murmured, as Arthur pushed him back onto the soft mattress once they got close enough to the bed, his heart still pounding in his chest as he straddled him.

    The King leaned down and pressed their foreheads together gently. "You've... You've got blueberry on your lips,"

     

    or

     

    A look into the night Arthur and Merlin finally stopped their dance around one another, and took the leap into new waters.

    Arthur had been ignoring his feelings for too long. One evening, when Merlin stopped by to "discuss courtly matters" (chat about his day) and enjoy some stolen berry tarts, the facade they've been putting on comes falling down.

    Summary

    “Are you really complaining about getting to spend time alone together?” Arthur teased, as he stared up at the cloudy sky.

    Merlin huffed softly, shifting to stretch out his legs in front of himself as he leaned back on his palms. “No, I’m complaining about you intruding on my vacation.”

    There was a moment of silence, as Arthur considered his lovers words.

    He rolled over onto his side, ignoring the wet grass dampening his shirt, to look at Merlin where he sat beside him. “Are you really upset?”

     

    or

     

    a snapshot into Merlin & Arthur's break from their duties, on vacation in Ealdor.

    Summary

    A loud shout of excitement drew his attention back to the celebration happening in the distance. Right. Arthur took another deep breath, preparing himself. Oh, gods, if his father could see him now.

    Sneaking into a celebration for a holiday of the Old Religion, not to massacre the group of people as Uther would have because of the magic in the celebration, but to join in and rejoice in the coming of Summer.

    At Merlin’s side.

     

    or

     

    Arthur thinks he is being sneaky when he conceals his identity to meet Merlin at the Summer Solstice Festival held by the druids in the evening.

    Summary

    Morgana frowned at her friend’s frown, but stayed still in her chair. “What is it? Is there something wrong with my hair?”

    “No, no everything’s fine, but, ah… Did you,” Gwen hesitated, looking perplexed. “Did you have candied almonds with your supper?”

    or

    Summary

    “Merlin!” His shoulders jumped slightly as he was yanked out of his train of thought by a second call of his name. His eyes moved to look at Arthur to his right, and he tilted his head.

    “What, Arthur?” He sighed. The King was frowning in bemusement as he stared at Merlin’s arm—the side of his shoulder specifically.

    “Why’ve you got flowers on your shirt?”

    Merlin faltered, a light heat rising to his cheeks as he realized what Arthur was referring to. He hadn’t realized he’d grabbed that shirt! He had been so tired…

    “I, ah,” he cleared his throat before looking away, trying to appear nonchalant. “I like flowers.”

     

    or

     

    Merlin has a secret habit.

    Or, more accurately, a coping mechanism.

    Embroidery.

    Whenever he feels anxious, doubtful, insecure, homesick, angry, even happy or excited, lovestruck… He grabs the needle and thread, and carefully—meticulously—sews his emotions into his clothes. Clothes, of course, that he never wears! His secret would not be so secret, after all!

    Until one day, tired and rushing, he grabs a shirt without looking, and Arthur sees them.

    The daisies on his arm.
