    Summary

    “At least your puppies knock first,” Stiles snorts. “Here I thought their alpha raised them to be well-mannered.” 



    “There’s a sign,” Derek responds stiffly. 



    Stiles, whose curiosity outweighs even his hardest of grudges, abandons his chilly façade of nonchalance in a heartbeat. He jumps right up and all but pushes Derek out of the way in his effort to get to the window, and sure enough when he leans outside there’s a laminated strip of cardstock duct taped to the vinyl siding: 



    DON’T FORGET TO KNOCK Stiles gets cranky when we scare him

    ---

    Or, in which Stiles Stilinski moves to Beacon Hills for his junior year of high school and accidentally adopts a pack of teenage werewolves.

    Summary

    Kissing Merlin’s forehead, he whispers into his damp skin, “You’re alright now, my love. I’ll never let you go again,” fighting the tears that threaten to fall, uncaring for the blood he dirties Merlin with - these clothes would need to be burned, no salvaging them, not even with magic.

    Arthur walks on top of the mangled corpses without giving them even one glance; forgiveness fled his heart the moment they took it away from him.

    Summary

    The teasing remark is already sitting on the tip of Arthur’s tongue but suddenly—suddenly, Arthur is so very tired of this game between them. For months now it has felt as if they have fallen out of step with each other, as if anything either of them said always just landed slightly wrong.

    He is so very tired of walking on eggshells around Merlin, each and every step questioned a hundred times. He is so, so tired of watching Merlin work himself to the bone and wondering whether he is the right person to say anything about it.


    Merlin is Court Sorcerer, Albion's Golden Age is right on their doorstep, and still, things between them are anything but alright. Sometimes, the most obvious answer is the one most difficult to see.

    Summary

    “Camelot needs you.”

    Sometimes, Merlin’s steadfastness can be admirable. At this moment, though, Arthur rather feels like throwing something. 

    “Camelot needs you too, you idiot,” Arthur snaps. 

    “I’m just a—“
     
    “If you finish that sentence, gods help me—“ Arthur points a threatening finger. “I thought I had made it quite clear. How many times do I need to repeat it to get it through your thick skull?”

    “Never said it once, actually,” mutters Merlin, rather insolently. 

    “No, fairly sure I have,” Arthur insists. “If you weren’t listening, that’s your problem.”

     
    A Battle of Camlann AU where Arthur knows about Merlin’s magic, Merlin is Camelot’s Court Sorcerer, and neither one of them dies.
