    Summary

    Modern, non-magical AU. Merlin and Arthur had always been close, made closer by early loss. But as Merlin comes out to himself and to the people who matter most to him, he finds it increasingly difficult to dodge that the way he feels about Arthur is not what it should be. Arthur is his first cousin, almost a brother, and he’s the gravitational centre of Merlin’s life. As they grow up, Merlin finds he can't look at Arthur without it stirring something that makes him feel ashamed. When Arthur comes to spend a summer with Merlin and his mum in New York City, Merlin is forced to confront his feelings, and left baffled by Arthur’s. This story follows Merlin and Arthur from childhood, through late adolescence, and into adulthood: it follows them through a summer of sexual awakening, and leads them through harrowing loss, to finally confront what seems an impossible choice.

    Summary

    In December 1944, the entire nation loves Rebecca Lawrence - "America's Most Beloved Homemaker." Her columns about leading the ideal life in the country help lift people's spirits on the home front during World War II. But when her publisher asks her to host a war hero for Christmas dinner, the world is in danger of learning the truth ... which is that "Rebecca Lawrence" is imaginary. Really, she's a combination of Raven's snappy writing and Charles' knowhow in the kitchen.

    However, this war hero, Erik Lehnsherr, is headed to Connecticut, so Raven and Charles have no choice but to find a way to make the imaginary real - at least, just for Christmas. Charles thinks they can pull it off, at least until he opens the door to see Erik and falls in love at first sight.

    (Kaydeefalls asked for a fusion, any fusion. So naturally I decided to mix XMFC with a 1940s Christmas movie.)
