Arthur and Merlin are members of the Accidental Magic Reversal Squad who work different shifts and share the same office. Arthur, who works the day shift, can't stand the rain. Merlin, who works the night shift, can't concentrate without it.
When they both get tired of changing the weather in the magical window in their underground office, is there a more British way to settle their differences than with a few passive-aggressive memos?
- so it's a good thing Arthur takes great photos and Merlin loves to write columns, then.
Subject: is your sidebar column image gonna become like the DADA position at hogwarts
I have a proposition for you.
Subject: i knew it. you're the geeky one here.
I'm all ears.
Subject: innocent until proven otherwise
EDIT: Actually much longer than 4k, but all of Merlin's columns are inserted images, so they're not counted in :D
John Watson moves to 221B Baker Street. Unfortunately, the flat's already occupied.
Merlin wants a tattoo. And maybe the tattoo artist as well.
Browbeaten and threatened into denying himself by a domineering father who refuses to be embarrassed by even a whisper that his son is gay, Arthur has given up everything that he's ever wanted in his life to keep the peace -- shaky as it is -- with Uther.
Arthur Pendragon, a former track and field Olympic medallist, is the well-liked and successful track coach of Camelot High, with a long list of former students making the national teams. For years, he's been courted to join the coaching staff at Ivy League universities, with the national team, for the Olympic team, but instead of jumping at the opportunities in front of him, Arthur keeps his head down and stays at Camelot out of a feeling responsibility for his students, duty to the school, and a tiny, little bit of fear.
It's the first day of school and a new runner joins Arthur's team -- a senior transfer from Ealdor High. Merlin Emrys is out, open, impossibly friendly, immediately popular, and impossibly persistent.
Merlin has two goals: the Olympics and Arthur.
