    Summary

    They were just words.

    Arthur didn’t understand why he couldn’t say it. Why he couldn’t wrench the words out of his throat… Because that’s all they were.

    Words.

    He was a King—he was used to saying difficult things. It shouldn’t be so impossible to say this, but it was.

    or

    Merlin & Arthur have an arrangement for stress relief. Arthur, though, wants more than what their arrangement provides.

    If only he could say the words.

    Summary

    Merlin had thought he could handle this.

    It had all made sense a few months ago: Arthur was King, Magic was legal and they were in love, but Camelot needed a legitimate heir. There would be little point in uniting Albion if it dissolved into civil war once Arthur passed on.

    So here Melin was, seated by Arthur’s side in full royal finery and staring at a plate of food that his queasy pregnant stomach couldn’t handle. His feet hurt, his head hurt, and he had to just keep smiling along like a good monarch when he was dying inside.

    Summary

    Merlin's job as PR junior on the royal account isn't as glamorous as people believe: Most nights, he's saving Arthur, Duke of York and black sheep of the family, from possibly committing monarchy-shattering shenanigans. When tragedy hits and Arthur is now second in line to the throne, the public doesn't react too favourably to the new Prince of Wales.

    A solution has to be found and Merlin's contribution is key to the problem: Roped into posing as Arthur's fake boyfriend, he's supposed to make Arthur's popularity levels rise with his steadfast and relatable presence and elevate him from scandalous rake to romantic figure...

    Summary

    Love, Merlin thought, caressing the word and signature with his thumb. Arthur was courting someone whom he loved. And who he loved was Mithian. What else could the M stand for?
