  1. Summary

    The first time Arthur meets Merlin, the circumstances are far from ideal: Arthur is desperately trying to fix his marriage to Gwen, while Merlin is still coming to grips with the loss of his husband, Will. They get off to a more than rocky start, but soon Arthur finds out that there is more to romance than sending flowers and pretty verses - and that Merlin knows what these things are. As their friendship grows, Arthur learns not only the ways of courtship, but also that between the two of them, it might be Merlin who needs help more than Arthur does in order to overcome his grief and move on with his life. In the midst of all of this, Arthur realises that he doesn’t want Gwen back after all. He just wants Merlin.

    Summary

    Stiles stumbles back when Derek takes a step toward him, but still says, "Tell me, did you offer Isaac, Erica and Boyd 'the bite,' too?" He's not proud of the air quotes he uses, but it's too late to rethink them now—Derek lunges at him with a growl and Stiles trips over his own feet and falls on his ass on the rocky ground. "What the fuck, Derek?"

    "You don't know what you're talking about," Derek says. He crouches over Stiles, insanely thick thighs bracketing Stiles's raised knees. His eyes flash red.

    Stiles sucks in a breath, heart beating high and terrified in his throat. He barely has enough breath to rasp, "What the fuck?" again.

    There's a growl low in Derek's chest. He says, "You can tell Scott that if he shows up with you, the deal's off."

    or -

    An AU where Scott was never bit by Peter Hale, Derek actually manages to be a good alpha, and Stiles gets kidnapped a lot.

    Summary

    What could be make the winter holidays worse for Arthur than having to entertain the surly King Olaf and his still-entirely-love-smitten daughter Lady Vivian?

    Why, doing it during an outbreak of magical mistletoe all over Camelot castle, of course!

    Canon compliant (-ish), set between Series 4 and 5, full of lots of banter and general shenanigans.

     

    Thanks as always to my lovely beta reader BlueSimplicity.

    Summary

    “You’re late,” Derek informed him coldly, jaw clenched. He barely even moved his mouth to speak. This guy was seriously scary.

    And because Stiles was suicidal, he said, “No, I’m Stiles.”

    The look he got could’ve curdled milk. Stiles even noticed that Derek’s muscles were tensing, arms bulging even more and wow this guy was scary and hot but mostly scary holy shit.

    “You’re not funny,” Derek informed him coldly.

    Stiles shrugged. “I think that’s a matter of opinion.”

    Summary

    The silhouette is backlit from the headlights on the Mini Cooper and he’s maybe hit his head harder than he thought because it almost looks like…

    “Merlin?”

    And Merlin feels as though his heart is exploding in his chest because that voice and his real name and as he looks up...the golden hair reflected in the light from the car.

    Arthur Pendragon is standing, completely starkers, in the middle of the road leading up to Lake Avalon.

    Summary

    He fell asleep around two in the morning, and only woke up when he heard a sharp inhale that was undoubtedly going to lead to a shout of terror. His eyes snapped open and he shifted over until he was almost on top of Stiles, holding him tightly and burying his face in his neck, inhaling deeply.

    He reeked of fear.

    “Stiles, you’re okay,” he promised, one hand in his hair and gripping tightly, the other against the bed so he wasn’t putting his full weight down on him. “You’re okay, Stiles, I’ve got you. I’ve got you.”
