    Summary

    When they're attacked by sorcerers, Merlin's forced to use his magic to protect Arthur and Gwaine. But the spell does something to him, and suddenly Merlin doesn't recognize them and won't say a word. Whatever Arthur and Gwaine may feel, they have to get Merlin back to Camelot before they lose him forever.

    In the end, they had to tie Merlin to a tree so he wouldn’t run off in the middle of the night. He spat and growled, and swiped clawed hands at them. “He’ll get better,” Gwaine said when he and Arthur were seated by the fire, a little way away from Merlin, who seemed to be gently gnawing on his forearm.

    Arthur stared into the fire with a clenched jaw, shadows running over his face. Gwaine had just about given up on Arthur speaking when he said, “Merlin lied to us for years.”

    Summary

    It wasn’t until the door had shut behind them and they were halfway to the car that he realised Freya was giggling beside him.

    “Daddy, you kissed Merlin.”

    “What?” Arthur said, frowning down at her.

    And then the bottom of his stomach dropped out.

    An extremely tired Arthur makes a terrible mistake with the childminder. Unless Merlin doesn't mind, of course...

    Summary

    Fantasy author Merlin is sick of city life and more than ready to settle down. He loves everything about his new house outside of London -- especially the extremely fit delivery man. Before long he’s sending packages to himself regularly just to make sure that he gets his daily fix of blond hair, blue eyes and bulging muscles. He and Arthur have struck up a friendship, but just as Merlin is working up the nerve to ask him out properly, he finds out that Arthur may not be what he seems.
