Title: Lovers' Moon
Rating: G
Pairing/s: Arthur/Merlin
Character/s: Arthur, Merlin
Summary: A gothic, slightly spooky take on the legend of Arthur's rest in Avalon.
Warnings: None
Word Count: 100
Prompt: 161 Moonlight
Author's Notes: None


Lovers' Moon

The rainbow offers passage from earth to other realms, they say. But the Summer country knows another such connection between worlds; for on rare occasions moonlight builds a brightly-paved way across the waters from hidden Avalon.

A crimson-cloaked king walks that shimmering path, his hair and armour reflecting the full moon's ghostly sheen. On the near shore, wrapped in shadows, his warlock always stands waiting.

According to legend, anyone who glimpses those two embracing will suffer severe melancholia. Local people wisely heed that warning - they yield the lake and lonely sands to the visitor from Faerie and his magical beloved.

Pairing/s: None
Character/s: Morgana
Summary: Morgana is victorious, but glory eludes her.
Warnings: None
Word Count: 100
Prompt: #160 Sunset
Author's Notes: None


Eclipse

Camelot was ablaze with the sinking sun's fire. Morgana considered her conquered realm. She had wanted the people to regard her with the awe they afforded this magnificent sunset; - to admire her as a source of splendour and magic flaming across land and sky.

But Arthur had escaped, his knights opposed her, and everyone else seemed worried and resentful.

She laughed, shrilly and bitterly. Since they refused to revere her like they did the sun's glory, she would instead teach them to fear her as the darkness that follows when the sun has set and storm clouds roll in.
