    Summary

    “I’m still single. ‘Coz there’s this one girl. I saw her at a meeting with the fans a few months back. I didn’t get to ask her name, because of all the commotion, people swarming in to the building. I’ve only seen her once but I…I’m in love with her.”
    "...No one can stop you from doing what you want…”
    “Yep, no one can stop me from doing what I want. So let’s break some fan girl hearts, shall we?”

    Summary

    Arthur Pendragon is Broadway's resident Hot Belting Tenor Heartthrob. The producers love him, the fans love him, everyone loves him. Especially his insignificant dresser Merlin.

    (Or, in which Merlin eats a lot of fancy cookies and laments over Arthur's high A's. That is, his ass.)
    _____

    "Merlin thinks that many things taste good. Red Velvet cookies, for example, are his favourite, though he knows that Arthur has a thing for Caramel Apple Crisps. Merlin also likes sweet and sour pork, and the comforting miasma of alcohol lurking inside his mouth. He also imagines that Arthur’s lips would taste rather nice as well, like the tinges of a golden sunset, the American Dream, a flawlessly executed coloratura passage. And caramel.
    Merlin also likes to combine some his favourite tastes. A good combination, he remembers, is sweet and sour pork from the place down the road with a Red Velvet to top it off. A combination to rival that, he learns tonight, is the sacred haze of two AM alcohol and the salted caramel of Arthur’s lips."

    Summary

    The interviewer’s smile freaks her out. “So,” she asks, sounding far too perky, “What’s the deal with you and Bellamy Blake?”

    Clarke wills herself not to flush as her brain processes the question. What is the deal her and Bellamy? He’s her sometime friend who argue and bicker like no other but she also craves the taste of him on her tongue. They’re people who sling insults at each other from their respective stages, only to find him later pulling her hair so that he can attack her neck with sloppy kisses. That’s what’s going on with her and Bellamy Blake.

    Instead, she gives her a charming smile and says, “Nothing. We’re just friends. Sometimes.”

    Next to her Raven begins to cough and Clarke slaps her on the back, perhaps a bit harder than necessary.

    or, Bellamy Blake and Clarke Griffin definitely do not like each other. No matter what the tabloids say.

    Summary

    “Those contracts that you signed was you agreeing to follow producer instructions.Your instructions were to give us drama. Whether or not you like each other, you are, for all intents and purposes, hired actors for these seven weeks,” Finstock snaps. “Pretend to actually like each other or I will dock your pay.”
    - - -
    Married at First Glance gives its participants seven weeks. Seven weeks, starting when they meet and marry their “perfect match”, to decide if they want to stay married or divorce.

    For Stiles and Derek though, the challenge lies within trying to pretend that they don’t absolutely hate each other’s guts. When you’re married to a werewolf who dislikes humans, however, this can get a little tricky.

    But the sweet, sweet cash reward at the end will be worth it. Right?

    Summary

    I host a writing challenge called Writing Prompt Wednesday on my Tumblr (unforth-ninawaters). I've written hundreds of prompts at this point and it occurred to me that having them all on AO3 would make it easier for others to find them, so here are all the prompts I've done. Each chapter is one week worth of themed prompts; themes are tagged in the Additional Tags. Some prompts imply MCD and other potentially triggering content.

    If you have an idea for a theme for me to write prompts about, please let me know in a comment or on Tumblr. If you write a story for ANY FANDOM based on these prompts, please add it to the Writing Prompt Wednesday collection!
