  1. Summary

    It is a sad fact that the Arthurian Legend ends badly.

    Camelot is eventually torn apart by the warring sides of Team Lancelot and Team Arthur; and on the show Morgana is proving increasingly devious as she tries to undermine the crown.

    But what if it didn’t have to be this way? What is the Triangle of Doom could become an OT3 of Awesome? What if Morgana could be distracted from her evil schemes by hot lovin’?

    For Valentine’s Day I have a collection of three cracky ficlets in which hormones triumph over tragedy. I hope you enjoy them.

    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!

    Summary

    "I really wish someone would come save me," Matt says, and the tone of his voice is past "slightly pointed" and nearing "very stabby" so Foggy ducks out from behind the wall.

    "Intruder!" Mole Man hisses, sweeping his cape around him like a Bela Lugosi impersonator.

    "Hi," Foggy says lamely, "I'm here to pick up my husband, are you about done with him?"

    "We're not looking to make friends, Harold," John said. "We want our neighbors to classify us and then avoid us. Being the scandalous gay couple down the street is a good option."

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Look, I have a clear weakness for undercover in suburbia; it's true. This is a slow burn action-adventure with a two-year-old and it's great.

    Summary

    When SHIELD gets intel that an arms dealer might soon be receiving Chitauri technology, Fury sends Clint and Coulson undercover to establish surveillance, ingratiate themselves with the arms dealer and his right hand man, and possibly intercept the sale. The catch? The arms dealer and his lieutenant are apparently posing as a couple, which means the best way for Clint and Coulson to get close is to pose as a couple, too. The longer the op goes on, the more Clint wonders which relationship is more real.

    The only way they can defeat those pesky arms dealers is by being as married as possible. Luckily, Phil and Clint are up for the challenge. Adorable domestic missionfic.

    Summary

    James and Thomas are blinking at her with the dull early morning look of two men who very much want to go back to sleep. Miranda swipes her thumb across the screen, and pulls the phone to her ear. "Hello?"

    It's Peter Ashe. "Have you seen the news?" he asks, pressing on before she could say a word. "There are pictures in the paper. Intimate ones. Of you, Thomas, and James." Her fingers tighten around the phone. She closes her eyes, and takes a deep breath. Then, pulling it from her ear, she taps the speakerphone button.

    "Say that again," she beseeches quietly. He does. He repeats it, and tells them more. At some point in the night, a hacker released dozens of stolen photographs.

    Now, all of England and beyond were discussing how an MP of Thomas' reputation was actually gay, that a Naval Officer with James' CV was a home wrecker, and how Miranda was either the victim of her husband's deviations, or a slut begging for more.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    So many elements of this fic were pure perfection: the characterisation, the prose, Miranda's POV, the world-building of the AU and the mystery/thriller storyline.

    It was just incredible and I loved all of it.
