    "For the first time in his life he has a desire that’s stronger than revenge or escape or flight or freedom."

    "If he had thought about this at all before (which he hasn’t) he would have said that there would have to be some increase of feeling in a liaison (relationship) like theirs--that eventually (it’s been a year)"

    Summary

    Written for the 2012 BoxOfMagic Merlin Big Bang

    In the aftermath of Merlin's battle against Nimueh, the rain seems a minor complication, perhaps even a cleansing influence. When the rain doesn't stop, Camelot is pushed to the brink once more. This time, Arthur may be in over his head. Contains: a lot of wet boys in emotional scenes, Arthur knowing more than he lets on, Merlin being an idiot, both of them being a bit stupidly heroic, telepathic chess, rain (lots of), war, making out against a tree, coincidental druids, co-opted history, co-opted myths, magic, coming of age (metaphorically), and more magically annoying yet surprisingly un-floody water than you can shake a stick at.

    "The eyes of the gods were upon him, but he only had eyes for his king."

    Stunning. Both Arthur and Merlin finally become who they where meant to be and all it takes is one —very angry— god.

    Summary

    “You seem—sad.” Was that the right word? Others sprang to mind: desperate, lonely, anxious.

    Tooru looked away. “Are you going to make me say it?”

    “Say what?”

    Tooru folded his arms, sighed. “I missed you, of course.”

    Hajime swallowed.

    “No need to look that way. I told you, I’m not one of your macho man buddies. I’m allowed to say stuff like that without being embarrassed—”

    “You’re being ridiculous,” Hajime complained. “No need to be so defensive. I’ve missed you too.”

    “Oh?” Tooru seemed to get a little of his own back, leaning forward on his elbows. “What about me did you miss?”

    ((Going to separate universities, Hajime and Tooru learn the true meaning of "distance makes the heart grow fonder"))

    "Burdens aren’t lighter when shared; you can’t lock a shared load up where no one can see it. Instead it lingers in the air, a silent weight that can’t be dislodged."

    Levi's voice was absolutely on point. Hopeful but down to earth and very well-written.

    “This wasn’t me, you know,” Crowley says, the words out of his mouth before he’s made the conscious choice to utter them. “Not just the library, but the whole civil war. You know me; I’ve mostly been getting drunk at Bacchanals.”

    “I know,” says Aziraphale.

    Summary

    The demon raises an eyebrow in an unnaturally perfect arch. "Not really my purview, is it, confession?"

     

    "You'll think it's funny. Well, you might." The corners of his mouth turn up, nervously, though there's that look in his eyes - a combination of warmth and weight that tugged at Crowley even before he knew what it meant. He's still not sure what to do with it, even after all this time.

     

    "Angel," he begins, "you don't have to-"

     

    "For the longest time, you see, I worried it was a - I think it's called a long game."
     

    Aziraphale doesn't feel guilty, for once, but has some things to confess.

    Crowley doesn't think he has guilt, and doesn't plan to confess anything. On both counts, he's wrong.

    "I didn't want to, is the truth of it, it ought to have scared me more than it did. That I wanted things just as you were."

    I could quote this whole thing like poetry.
    The author got their voices just right.

    Summary

    Aziraphale saw him sometimes in all-staff meetings, sitting toward the front but off to the side, lounging against a wall. Even then, he’d had style—wings tipped in gold and face painted with gold flakes in the pattern of the first constellation he designed. He was amazing, and eye-catching, and it was no exaggeration to say that he did not know Aziraphale even existed.

    "Aziraphale drew in one unsteady breath. “So you’ll be keeping it?”

    “Never in question, angel,” Crowley said, and the moment lingered between them, soft and sweet and actually perfect."

    “Think you can make this holy?”

    “I think you’ve got enough angel left in you to make it work,” Aziraphale said, because he knew it would make Crowley laugh, and laughter was the perfect way to begin a kiss.

    “I’m glad you chose me over the sheep,” Crowley murmured.

    “It was a close call.”

    Summary

    “The Angel of the Eastern Gate.” Crawly grins. “What’s your name, anyway? You never said.”

    “Oh...” Apologies, Aziraphael almost says, but then he doesn’t. That would be taking things a bit too far, he thinks. This is still the Enemy. “Aziraphael.”

    “Aziraphael,” repeats Crawly—or tries to, because halfway through the word he chokes. Quite badly.

     
    Or: What if Aziraphale’s name was originally "Aziraphael", in keeping with the conventional spelling and pronunciation of angel names, but because of its divine nature, Crowley is physically unable to say it out loud.

    "The soft, incredulous little smile on Crowley’s face when Aziraphale turns back around to him, he knows with some inexplicable and instantaneous conviction, is something he will remember, undimmed by millennia, no matter how long he may live; no matter where the world may take them."

    So goddamned sweet.

    Summary

    After translating Agnes Nutter's prophecy, Aziraphale and Crowley spend an evening attempting to learn each other's mannerisms:

     

    “Dearest Gabriel, it was lovely seeing-”

    “Crowley,” Aziraphale interrupted. “You cannot sneer when you say ‘lovely’. It makes you seem completely disingenuous.”

    “That would be because I am completely disingenuous,” Crowley said, raking his fingers through his hair. “Obviously, interacting with a damned - er, blessed - Archangel is going to be about as far from lovely as you can get.”

    In fact, it would be Hell.

    And Crowley had experienced more than enough of Hell to know the comparison was no hyperbole. Righteously sure of their divine right, and confident in their inherent superiority, Archangels were a cruel breed.

    “Well you’re going to have to pretend,” Aziraphale demanded.

    “What do you think I’m trying to do?”

    Summary

    Merlin kissed Arthur on the mouth once, because it was spring, and spring made everything here wild. The burn flowing next to them laughed, because it was wild too; filled with water that was recently melted snow. Merlin's kisses kept Arthur warm, or at least they made the cold matter less.

    Inspired by this KMM prompt: They're students at some remote boarding school. They both like to sneak out after hours, and keep running into each other while out on the moors or whatever. Eventually they start talking, and this grows into kissing, and then touching and sex.
