    Summary

    Set after the Merlin Series 5 Finale "Diamond of the Day".
    Canon Compliant. In Character. Arthur Pendragon Returns.
    Cover art by Lao-Pendragon

    ------

    For many long years Merlin waited.

    For the other part of his soul, for the other half of his life. He was born to serve Arthur. So that meant he was also born to wait. Even if it took a thousand years. Even if the wait seemed never to end.

    Until one day, suddenly, it did.

    When Arthur stumbles from the Lake of Avalon 1,500 years after his death, he finds a world unlike the one he knew. Faced with the loss of everyone he loved, and the threat of impending prophecy, Arthur must learn what it means to be not just a king, but the Once and Future King. Merlin does all he can to guide him, even as he struggles to hide his love for his king, and his fear of losing him again.

    Story includes sass, banter, horseplay, & True Love.

    Summary

    Draco's in a bit of a rut. He's nearing forty, divorced, and he still can't figure out how to make his Time Turner reconstruction work. He's bored, he can admit it, so he's not nearly as concerned as he should be when his pet project malfunctions and sends him twenty years into the past. That is, until he ends up relying on a nineteen-year-old Harry Potter for help and starts developing some very inconvenient—and possibly reciprocated—feelings.

    Summary

    Simon hates his posh Oxford suite mate. Baz can't help it that he has resting-bitch face and a voice so rich that it makes people want to start a Communist uprising. Basically, it's Carry On at Oxford without magic or plot.

    “You tore up my books, Pitch?”
    “I didn’t tear anything up, you maniac. Get off.”
    I spit on him. He flinches, but can’t wipe his face because I still have his hands.
    “Snow. I must insist you stop attacking me like this. It’s homoerotic, frankly, and I doubt that’s what you have in mind.”
    I leap away from him.
    “What?”
