    Summary

    Courfeyrac had always known he was destined for great things - theatre, comedy, maybe opera (though Marius would possibly disagree with that one), anything that would get his name in lights and a crowd at his feet.

    So it came as little surprise when, on his 18th birthday, words appeared on his left shoulder in a rough, hurried script reading ‘why do you even have a mug full of glitter?’

    Summary

    The year is 1875, and Louis Riel is exiled for crimes against the government of Canada. The railroad heads west, and Manitoba is finally surveyed and properly blocked off into little boxes for Ottawa.
    In the winter of 1876, Sir John A. Macdonald is advised of the shift of public opinion. A passionate series of letters to the newspapers is inciting the Quebecois, lighting a rebellious fire in their eyes. It’s just shy of ninety years since the French revolted in Europe, but it is not far from the minds of the Senate or Legislature when their resident French population’s blood is stirring so patriotically in their veins.
    Under duress, Sir John A. Macdonald calls on the one man he knows can make any revolution fail--former MP Louis Riel.
    Louis Riel accepts too eagerly, heading straight into Ottawa, and arrives in Macdonald’s office at gunpoint.

    Summary

    “I was wondering if you might come home with me.” Merlin stops mid-rant and stares at him, and then down at his panini again, and back at Arthur. This is a panini of lies and pain. He can tell already.

     

    “For Christmas? I’ve got an uncle and a mother and a sister waiting for me at home, in case you hadn’t remembered, I’m not going home with you just because you’re a workaholic.”

     

    “No, it’s. My mum might be under the impression that we’re a little bit married.”

     

    In which Merlin gets conned into spending Christmas with Arthur's family and pretending to be his husband, because somehow this is his life.

    Summary

    “Love happens to the best and the worst of us. And sometimes, it can be messy, and breathtaking and spectacular, and you don’t fall into it so much as you collide into the other person. And there’s fireworks and heat and ups and downs. And it’s beautiful. It’s really beautiful.

    And sometimes it happens real casual like, you know? Sometimes it happens slowly and quietly, so slowly and so quietly that you don’t even know it’s happened until you’re right in the middle of it.

    But just because it’s sneaked up on you doesn’t mean that it means any less.”
