    Summary

    The Bridgertons know Simon as he is; his father only knows him in what he lacks and how. With the Bridgertons, there is no memory of a youthful speech impediment, or a mother’s death from childbirth, or cold holidays with only a nanny for company. With the Bridgertons, there is community, affection, congeniality. He can almost forget the weight of a ducal title, or the vagaries of the royal family to which he is distantly related.

     

     

    He can almost forget there is another man out there who claims him, however remotely, but never cared for him.

     

    Until the year of his thirtieth birthday, when he can’t almost forget any of it any longer.

     

    Simon Basset is all set to inherit his dukedom, until a stipulation in his late father's will changes the course of his life.

    Summary

    Arthur could see his father glaring down - face red and eyes narrowed as he looked at Merlin with clear distaste.

    "Once this over, sorcerer...I’ll burn you."

    "You’ve already tried that," Merlin’s voice answered and Arthur had to bite his fist to keep from making any noise. “You need to accept you can’t kill me… Hand me that blanket, please.”

    “I’m sure there must be some method… Beheading?”

    “No, we tried that.”

    “Hanging?”

    “I just sort of... Swung there, remember?”

    There was another pause.

    “I should have made you keep that dragon below the castle so I could feed you to it.”

    “Kilgharrah? He won’t eat me, but if you want to torture me than making me listen to his nonsense for an hour might do it.” Merlin said and there was a soft sigh from the other end of the room. “I’m glad you agreed to help me though. Usually I have to do the grunt work of saving Arthur myself.”

    “I can’t wait to kill you.” 

    Or

    Uther finds out about Merlin’s magic, but can’t seem to kill him. Merlin is just trying to protect Arthur. They become a begrudgingly effective duo. Arthur doesn't understand why they think he isn't noticing this.

    Summary

    Her heart jumps when she sees him in her chair, his shirt already unlaced. (She does not jump. Contessina is many things, but she is not jumpy.)

    A post-wedding coda, in which Cosimo pays what he owes.
