  1. Summary

    The first time Arthur meets Merlin, the circumstances are far from ideal: Arthur is desperately trying to fix his marriage to Gwen, while Merlin is still coming to grips with the loss of his husband, Will. They get off to a more than rocky start, but soon Arthur finds out that there is more to romance than sending flowers and pretty verses - and that Merlin knows what these things are. As their friendship grows, Arthur learns not only the ways of courtship, but also that between the two of them, it might be Merlin who needs help more than Arthur does in order to overcome his grief and move on with his life. In the midst of all of this, Arthur realises that he doesn’t want Gwen back after all. He just wants Merlin.

    Summary

    ‘Don’t start without me and hurt yourself, Derek.’

    ‘Shut up.’ Derek flashed his eyes with a low growl.

    ‘Careful, flash your eyes at me again and I’ll kiss you ‘til you drop.’

    It took a second for it to sink in, but when it did, Stiles stopped flipping his keys and looked heavenward. He could feel Derek looking at him, practically hear Scott’s smirk.

    ‘Well.’ Stiles nodded awkwardly, ‘See ya!’

     

    Or

    5 times Stiles almost lets slip how he really feels and one time he didn't have to, with a whole lot in between.

    Summary

    “And you know what?” Merlin goes on, his voice low and menacing in a way Arthur barely recognises, “Arthur is a so much better King than you ever could be, in spite of what a horrible father you were. He’s kind and just, and his people love him so much more. It’s not magic that has poisoned this kingdom, it was your fear – no, your guilt that you couldn’t bear to live with, like the coward you are. All you’ve lost, you only have yourself to blame for.”

    Arthur doesn’t need to see his father’s face to picture the fury perfectly. As it is, his head is spinning too badly to process most of what was said, the words tumbling over each other and becoming blurred.

    His father doesn’t seem to have such problems.


    Or: When Merlin confronts Uther's ghost, he finds that he has a few more things to tack onto his rant. It really depends on who you ask if it’s unfortunate or not that for once, Arthur doesn’t stay unconscious for just the right amount of time.

    Summary

    It was like a door he’d nailed shut in his brain suddenly exploded open, all of his past confusion and anger and hurt and adoration flooding out at once. Stiles? Was it actually Stiles?!

    Stiles, the guy he’d had a crush on for fucking years growing up. The guy who’d been an absolute dick to him their whole last year of high school.

    The guy who’d told him he loved him in a dirty men’s bathroom on prom night while drunk and upset because he thought Kira was Derek’s girlfriend.

    That Stiles? But it couldn’t be!

    Summary

    Merlin sighs. "After your...announcement," he explains, "your father decided he needed a bit more information. Which is apparently where I come in. I'm sort of like his gay tutor, it's hard to explain."

    Summary

    Stiles wasn’t sure when the change had happened; when they could sit together and not want to punch the other, when they actually seemed to authentically enjoy the other’s company. When he went to leave, Stiles was extremely aware of the lack of warmth Derek had provided to him throughout the night.

    Or, 5 times Stiles doesn't notice how close he's become to Derek and 1 time he savors it.
