    Summary

    Arthur had no idea how it had come to this, he really didn’t. One minute he was yelling at his father, and the next he was- standing in just his black boxer briefs in front of a handsome stranger in the middle of an art studio in the woods. What the fuck.

    Now with a semi-sequel: Out of the Woods

      Well, this was a treat. First of all, I totally love Arthur standing up to Uther. I also really loved the mysterious creepy walk through the woods, the building that is out there in the middle of nowhere...the whole empty building vibe, the window/sliding door on the lake...oooh...and Arthur's first sight of Merlin's painting.
      I also love when Merlin takes charge, so that was fun! I see from one of your replies that Merlin is nervous too...and seeing that made me yearn for this from Merlin's POV too. So if you ever think of remixing one of your own stories...I'm in for what I'm sure would be a phenomenal read!+

    Summary

    Rey is a makeup artist who has found a sense of belonging for the first time in her life. After years of struggling, she's been working for Rebel Broadcasting System for three years, and her life seems to be sorting itself out at last. The channel has quickly become her home; its cast and crew, her family. Her golden days seem to be numbered, though, as infamous interviewer and TV star Kylo Ren threatens to invade her safe haven in the aftermath of an incident that ostracized him from his original home, First Order Network. Leia Organa can't possibly look her in the eye and tell her she'll have to do Ren's makeup every single day for the rest of her career, can she?

    Summary

    “At this point,” Tobirama drawls, hands some notes to the waiter and then waves him off with a flick of his wrist, “I’m surprised the two of you haven’t clocked on to this… domestic, housewife thing you have going on.”

    Hashirama, surprised, asks why.

    “Well,” Tobirama says with a heavy sigh, “the only thing you do all day is prepare meals, read some blogs and go brunching. And then he comes home and he pays the bills. It’s disgusting.”

    In which Madara and Hashirama share an apartment, and a routine. Madara is Hashirama's best friend, after all. Maybe more than just a friend, really. But it'll take Hashirama a while to figure it out.

    Summary

    Melancholy has a distinct color.

    It’s blue, but not a rich blue of that of the deep sea. It’s the color of ice blowing off a glacier at dusk, pale and haunting. It morphs into deep blacks when it touches your fingertips and it swarms around a person like a thick fog, threatening to suffocate whomever its wrapped itself around.

    Clarke is familiar. She’s familiar because its become a part of her morning routine: take a shower, apply light mascara, get dressed, and watch as the color of melancholy snakes around her hair, tinting the sharp blonde.

    Melancholy has a distinct color, but even more so, it hugs you like a friend and betrays you like an enemy.

    ~~~

    After tragedy alters Clarke’s outlook on life, she turns her back on everything set out before her: medical school, a life of privilege, and most importantly, family. When she rents a room in The Ark – a brewery converted into living spaces – she’s forced out of her comfort zone when surrounded by the tenants who live there.

    Particularly a curly-haired brunette with a tendency to combine insults with historical references, intentionally keep her awake, and even most frustrating, make her not stop thinking about him.

    What a dick.

    Summary

    Clarke is nine when she realises she has a soulmate.

    She positions the marker and begins, drawing an otter swimming her forearm. She’s most of the way finished when she feels a prickling and words appear underneath her otter. The fine blue ink and messy scrawl a stark contrast to the thick marker and neat drawing above it.

     

    Go away. I don’t want a soulmate.

     

    Clarke frowns at the words on her arm. She’s heard about soulmates, even seen them in movies, but they’re kind of rare and she’s only met two people who have one. She knows some of her friends have written messages on their own skin hoping that they would get a reply, but no one has ever gotten one as far as she knows. And now the blue ink on her arm clearly states that her soulmate isn’t interested in her. She hates them, she decides. Who cares if they don’t want her?

    I don’t want one either. She writes in her thick marker underneath the blue words. But this is my skin and I want to draw on it. So there. She completes her message with an entire zoo down both her arms. She’s working on her legs when her dad finally turns around.

    Summary

    Yoongi is slowly being convinced that it is, in fact, the cat talking to him, as insane as it sounds. This is no household cat. He had a cat once, when he was almost too young to remember it, and it did not talk like a human being.

    Never mind the fact that it glows.

    And it leads him to his next train of thought, which he inadvertently blurts out. “What are you?”

    “I’m your familiar, Min Yoongi.”

     

    Or in which, in the span of a few days, Yoongi inherits a mansion from a relative he's never heard of, a library, a cafe, a goddamn beach (okay, he owns a part of it), as well as six strangers and a cat.

    And apparently the ability to make his couch float, among other things. And maybe even a little revenge plot?

    Summary

    “Do you want me to stay?”

     

    “Do you want a cookie?”

     

    Holding the cookie up between them, elbow propped on the island, her question answered his.

     

    “Yes, I want the cookie.”

     

    He leaned forward to snatch it with his mouth, hands-free from where she held it, his eyes on hers.

     

    “Yes, I want you to stay.”

     

     

     

    ****

    She'd been the daughter of their housekeeper since they were children, but when Rey moved back home from California after college, Ben was not prepared for how she would light up his life.

    Summary

    A Modern day Merlin AU set at the University of St Andrews, featuring teetotal kickboxers, secret wizards, magnificent bodyguards of various genders, irate fairies, imprisoned dragons, crumbling gothic architecture, arrogant princes, adorable engineering students, stolen gold, magical doorways, attempted assassination, drunken students, shaving foam fights, embarrassing mornings after, The Hammer Dance, duty, responsibility, friendship and true love...

    This story was inspired by the thought of Prince William of Wales (and indeed the current Max von Hapsburg) studying at the University of St Andrews; it is also, as the title suggests, at least a little inspired by the operetta 'The Student Prince'.

    Grateful thanks to Lamardeuse and DarkEmeralds for Beta and cheerleading!
