    Summary

    Arthur and Merlin have a special relationship. They always have, even when they were prince and servant. While many question it when first noticing, eventually it becomes an understanding in Camelot—and even among some other countries—that where there is Arthur, there is Merlin. And, where there is Merlin, there is Arthur.
     

    Or

    Arthur and Merlin's relationship as witnessed and explained by others.

     

    Also, or

    Five times someone realizes that Merlin is the Queen, one time Merlin realizes it himself, and one time he owns it.

    Summary

    Leon had always known that he would never be in real trouble for speaking in any way to Arthur. Not like he would have with Uther. But there had still been consequences — namely, brutal beatdowns in training. Now that their Round Table had diminished, he and Percival had grown unbelievably close, hardened by loss and the task to keep their friends’ memories alive. They had also discovered that Arthur had become a big softie with them, and that they could pretty much get away with anything.

    So he paused in his laughter to say, “We’ve been waiting for a proposal so long I think we’ve missed it altogether.”
    --
    The knights call out Merlin and Arthur for acting like a married couple, and it haunts them for the rest of the day.

    Summary

    Ash Lynx’s story first caught the public eye two years ago, after his lifeless body had been found slumped in a seat at the Rose Room of the New York Public Library. It wasn’t even that big or anything; just a one minute clip of a reporter standing at the steps of NYPL as she narrated about Ash’s criminal records, gang life, and now sudden death. Nothing special, just your usual non-headline news on the local channel, except—

    “Ash Lynx died smiling and clutching a letter signed by one Eiji Okumura,” the reported had said as an image of a piece of parchment was flashed on the screen.

    Max felt his stomach drop as he watched because he knew.

    Suddenly it wasn’t just a story anymore. It had turned into a sensation.

    Summary

    “What about you?”

    Eiji fluttered his dark eyelashes in a confused expression, “What about me?”

    “Do you love America?” Ash clarified. He shoved his hands in his distressed jean pockets and rocked on his heels, unsure as to why he felt compelled to ask such an invasive question so soon.

    But Eiji took no mind. He thought for a moment, taking a careful look around at the neighborhood, his newfound friends, and the bright blue sky above.

    Finally, he landed his search on Ash.

    “I’m starting to.”

    Summary

    “Oh man, we should all go! Family road trip! Remember when we’d go to New York with Mom and Dad?” Matthew’s voice was a careful balance of wistful, nostalgic, and optimistic, and it had an immediate effect on the older Lynches.

    As the two of them exchanged wary looks, Matthew threw Adam a conspiratorial wink and Adam realized Matthew knew exactly what he was doing. Maybe, Adam mused, Matthew had gotten more from Niall than just boxing lessons and a life of secrets.
