    Summary

    Arthur feels like he’s standing on a precipice without knowing how he got here. He swallows. “He—”

    “—damned himself. So you’ve said.”

    They stare at each other, and the distance between them seems to be growing in leaps and bounds. Arthur can’t remember the last time he felt so estranged from Merlin, not during the whole disaster with Caerleon, or when Merlin disappeared. Not even when—

    “Then I’ve damned myself as well.”


    Without intending to, Arthur pushes Merlin just one step too far. Now he's left without his manservant but a hundred questions, a world of hurt, and guilt that clings to him like a shadow. Well, and a notebook filled with drawings because apparently, Merlin can draw on top of being a sorcerer. No matter how often Arthur tells himself that he just wants to forget, he can't help but come back to the collection of sketches and notes, a chronicle of all that Merlin has done.

    Maybe their story isn't quite over yet.

    Summary

    "How is it possible that neither of you thought to pay attention to the moon cycle?"

    "It was cloudy," Harry said. "And we were drunk. We were very, very drunk."

    "This just gets better," Hermione said. "How could you have been so stupid?"

    "In my defence," Harry said, "I had no idea that I should have been paying attention to the moon cycle. I'm not going to lie, I didn't even know men could get pregnant. It's been like, one long life lesson all round."

    Or: the one where Harry accidentally gets Draco pregnant, both of them fail to talk about their feelings, and in the end, there's a baby.
