    Summary

    When pirate Captain Arthur Pendragon rescues a young man from the wreckage of a ship he admittedly sunk himself, he doesn't know he's just sealed his fate forever. Merlin is the most obnoxious loudmouth of a ship-boy Arthur has ever met, but he's also strangely intriguing. While the two exchange insults and keep saving each other's lives, they are inevitabley drawn to each other. The only problem: Merlin abhors nothing more than a pirate.

     

    Written for this prompt:
    Merlin is condemned to death for practicing sorcery and witchcraft but is given a stay of execution due to his demonstrable pregnancy (the baby's movement can be felt). On the far side of the world, word reaches Captain Arthur Pendragon of his lover's plight. He immediately sets sail for home, but with oceans to cross and Merlin's execution set for the day after he delivers their child, will Arthur make it home in time to rescue the man he loves.

    Summary

    If Horatio were to be honest, he hadn’t realized quite how close he and Archie had become until Simpson’s reappearance. The gnawing sense of unhappiness that had been with him all his life took on a whole new meaning now that he knew what it was to have a friend – and to lose him.

    The Duel from Horatio's perspective and with a few extra fluffy scenes thrown in.
