“He cursed me. I’m coughing up flowers, Gaius—what other possible explanation is there?”
“Well, there is—”
“He was mad at me, it’s exactly something he would do. Infuriating, obnoxious, goddamned sorcerer that he is probably finds it funny to—”
It is said that the sins of the father should not be cast upon the son. Unfortunately, a father's miscalculated bargain can still come back to haunt you—Arthur is twenty-one, has a kingdom to rule, and apparently, a magically binding marriage contract with the Prince of Escetir. Prince Merlin, who has magic, a dragon, great dislike for Arthur, and still no intention to back out of the contract.
The worst part is, to a degree, Arthur understands—as a sorcerer, he wouldn't trust Uther Pendragon's son either. So he simply has to convince Merlin that he can be trusted, and the contract can be broken while they secure peace between Camelot and Escetir. It's a good plan.
Right up until forces conspire against both their kingdoms, more secrets come to light, and Arthur starts coughing up flowers.
- Part 34 of Merlin Stories
“I think today it’s finally about time to tell you the greatest love story there is.”
Gareth grimaces. “Eeeh, love. I don’t want to hear a boring love story. I want a story about knights and dragons and magic-”
His sister interrupts him. “That’s because you are too young to understand anything about love, silly,” she says with as much seriousness in her voice a six-year old can muster. Merlin shares a smile with Arthur and ruffles through Gareth’s hair.
“The story is not only about love, Gar,” he then promises his son, “It’s as much about adventure and fights and friendship and knights and torture and evil kings and betrayal and a lot of magic.”
Or, when Arthur kidnapps the crown prince Merlin from Emrys he expects an evil sorcerer instead of a clumsy, kind, (and strangely handsome) boy who constantly insults him.
Will Merlin manage to change Arthur's opinion about magic and stop Uther Pendragon from conquering his own kingdom?
Living under the same roof as Uther Pendragon has its perks - you never have to do any chores, you can buy whatever new gadget you wanted, and you're raised to be a strong, powerful man. His views have always lined up with yours, because you didn't know any better, and you had him as your living and breathing example. But what happens when you realize you're falling in love with the exact person you always vowed to hate? What happens when your entire life, and everything you've known, is threatened, just because you happen to be in love with a boy - and your father is the biggest homophobe in the entire city of London? 17-year-old Arthur Pendragon realizes too late that he opened his heart to just this, and has to live with the consequences.
How Arthur Pendragon went from the biggest homophobe in school, to falling in love with Merlin Emrys - and then some.
- Part 1 of Wonder
A hand reached for his forearm, and Arthur whirled around, only to discover none other than the strange man from the restaurant standing in front of him, face flushed and panting slightly.
“You just left,” the man complained between breaths. “You can’t do that, it’s really bad form to leave your husband behind like that!”
Arthur felt like he’d stepped through the looking glass. He couldn’t have heard that correctly, could he? For a second there, it had almost sounded as if the man had referred to himself as Arthur’s husband, which was ridiculous, of course. He’d never even seen the man before, and he certainly hadn’t married him.
