Character/s: Merlin, Arthur
Summary: During a bad night, Merlin calls Arthur, but he doesn't know why. It's not like they're really friends or anything, right?
Warnings: slight mentions of verbal abuse
Word Count: 917 (inside word limit for once!)
Prompt: #94 - Caring
Author's Notes: Wow, so, this turned out mostly well, I think. I like to play with Arthur's character, having him be this "rough-tough-arrogant-king" kind of guy, but also having a secretly caring and very genuine side. It was fun to test out, at least. I definitely might want to expand on this universe, I have a few ideas in mind for it. Anyway, please enjoy!

Title: Your Name He Prays
Rating: PG-13
Pairing/s: Merlin/Arthur
Character/s: Arthur
Summary: In which, Arthur confesses to a few things.
Warnings: Mild religious practices (prayer; confession of sins)
Word Count: 1054
Prompt: #91 - Atonement
Author's Notes: I'm not sure if the religious practices should be a warning, but in case anyone doesn't want to read about it, I wanted to write it in there. I don't consider it a warning but ehh, better to be safe than sorry, yeah? Anyway, I wanted to write a quick note about this before you read:

Arthur is an Angel. In this verse, the codes of "purity" and "chastity" in which he vowed to follow means never falling in love and never engaging in any sort of physical intimacy (both romantic & sexual), which is why the events play out they way they do. So in case anyone is confused at Arthur's confessions later on in the story (because as far as anyone knows, Arthur's done nothing beyond kissing with Merlin), that's the reason why he's "sinned".

Okay, enough of my rambling. Onto the story, enjoy!

Don't forget to read the rest of the Angels & Demons verse.

Rating: PG-13
Pairing/s: Merlin/Arthur
Summary: Arthur comes home to the tiny town of Ealdor for the holidays, with every intention of telling Merlin how he feels. Things don't exactly go according to plan, but maybe that's because he didn't have a plan to begin with.
Word Count: 4,039
Author's Notes: Happy Holidays, friend! First of all let me tell you how much fun I had writing this--so thank you for the great prompt! It made me pretty glad to be doing another gift, in all honesty. But yeah, I really hope you like this. I tried to include as many of your likes as I could, so I really hope it turned out okay.

Author's Notes: Hey, you! I'm sorry if this isn't quite what you wanted, but I hope it's cute and fluffy enough, at least. I wasn't sure if you wanted canon or modern!AU, so I decided to stick with the good ol' canon verse, because hey, that's always pretty swell, right? It's a great "everyone lives" fic. Hope you enjoy it, and Happy Holidays!

Warnings: None
Word Count: 1161
Prompt: #88 - Breathless
Author's Notes: So. Musician!AUs again. I love Musician!AUs, you have no idea. Though, I must say, this is honestly inspired by this Korean Drama my parents have been watching lately called Five Fingers. It's got a lot to do with music and pianos and blah, blah, blah. But you know. Sorry for again, going over the word count, but I felt inspired and well, yeah. Couldn't stop once I started. I listened to a good piano playlist while writing this, and it was great. So yeah, hope you guys enjoy!

Prompt: #87 - Arouse
Author's Notes: Annnd the moment we've all been waiting for. Can't say I'm 100% okay with this one, but I'm tired and I like it well enough after like, ten billion edits. Sorry Mods, for going over the word count again. I promised I'd actually start going within limits, and well, at least I did for the last two drabbles, right? A/D verse always gets me excited. But yeah, so, hope you guys enjoy!

Summary: It's been years. But she doesn't forget.
Warnings: Mentions of past character death due to fire
Word Count: 673
Prompt: #86 - Autumn
Author's Notes: So I'm branching out of my comfort zone to write Lance/Gwen instead of Merlin/Arthur. I think this is my first drabble that doesn't feature them as the main pairing? It's kind of nice, though. I love Lance/Gwen, they're so lovely and sweet. This is a lot sadder, and shorter, than I'd been planning on, oops. But you know, it's all good in the end, I think. Enjoy?

Title: Come What May
Rating: PG
Pairing/s: Merlin/Arthur
Character/s: Ygraine, Arthur, Merlin (mentioned), Uther (mentioned)
Summary: It takes Ygraine only a few seconds to realize exactly what he's implying, and she feels her heart sink at this, at how the fear dances across her son's eyes. Does he truly believe she would reject him for this? Has she truly given him the impression that she would not accept him, no matter how he is?
Warnings: None
Word Count: 983
Prompt: #85 - Relief
Author's Notes: I live! Ah, I've so missed writing these little drabbles. It's been a crazy month for me. Has anyone else been doing NaNoWriMo this year? Because that's been eating my time up like you wouldn't believe. Plus, I've been practically drowning in schoolwork. But yeah, found some time, hit 50k last night, so I figured I'd write something up for this. I found myself with an extreme desire for some parental bonding fics, and there isn't enough fics where Arthur gets to know his mom and this SADDENS ME so I wrote this little piece up at like, what, midnight? After watching the 50th anniversary for DW pffft. But yeah, please enjoy!

Warnings: Mildly implied violence, Language
Word Count: 1,553
Prompt: #81 - The Month Of Sins: Pride
Author's Notes: Oh wow, I don't hate this one! But I do feel like it moved a little fast...but there's sort of a reason for that. I actually have all of the Sin Fics planned in my head (well, except for Sloth, but shhh), and in order to do the others, I had to break the wall of stubbornness Arthur built. And well, now I suppose you can see where this goes. And plus, we already knew from the last part Arthur knows he's pretty fucked, so I'm hoping it doesn't seem...too abrupt? But anyway, please enjoy!

Rating: PG-13
Pairing/s: Merlin/Arthur

Summary: “So this is Merlin's new toy, then? I can't say I'm disappointed in his taste.”
Warnings: None
Word Count: 1780
Prompt: #80 - The Month of Sins: Wrath
Author's Notes: So, Mods, if you're reading this, I must ask you to forgive me and my constant "let's break the word limit" game. Once the Month of Sins is over I promise I'll be a good drabbler and write works that fall within the limits.

Okay so I actually wrote two stories for this prompt, and this is the one I hated less, so this is the one you're getting. I don't know, I'm just really fussy and unhappy with this one. I feel like Arthur's out of character and that really wasn't my intention and I've been fighting myself about it this entire time and ugh. I'm sorry this is shitty. Bleh. But anyway, more back story for Merlin soon and please try to enjoy. Title is from a quote by Katherine Wolf, "Oh, sweet sorrow, the time you borrow, will you be here when I wake up tomorrow?"

Title: He Who Owns Your Heart
Rating: PG-13
Pairing/s: lightly implied Merlin/Arthur
Character/s: Merlin, Gwaine
Summary: “There's...something about him,” Merlin murmurs, shaking his head. “Something about him that...that I can't place. Can't put my finger on." In which, Merlin mulls over his desires and Gwaine knows about Arthur.
Warnings: None
Word Count: 1,369
Prompt: #79 - The Month of Sins: Greed
Author's Notes: Please safely assume that all of the A/D verse fics for this entire month will be over 1000 words, due to the fact that I have this horrible habit of just not stopping the flow when it comes. But yeah, sorry for the lack of Merlin/Arthur in this one, I think this is my first time not writing them *squints*. Yeah, I'm not entirely pleased with this. It feels off to me, like, I don't know why, but it just...does. But anyway, I'm going to try and slowly introduce other characters (both Demon and Angel) to the mix, since this verse is turning out to be way larger than I thought it was going to be. Plus, who doesn't love Gwaine? Psh, anyway, please enjoy!

Prompt: #78 - The Month of Sins: Lust
Author's Notes: Let's play, "Did-You-Even-Try-To-Keep-Under-1000-Words?" The answer is no. I ran away with this and didn't even try to cut it down. Welcome back to the world of the Angel/Demon AU. This is going to be one fun month. Seven Deadly Sins? Count me in. Also, this is definitely for [livejournal.com profile] osky291 who is practically my cheerleader for this verse and continues to inspire me. Plus, I also promised her a full-length A/D verse fic, which, I give to you, dear friend, in this form, with sequels probably in the making. Anyway, please enjoy, everyone!

[EDIT]: Here's the other two parts of this, by the way. They're all connected but they're also stand-alone stories, but in case you haven't read the earlier parts, here you go: "Mischief Managed" & "Into The Dark".

Summary: Merlin's a little blind, Arthur's a little smitten, and there's shameless flirting (from Arthur) over coffee.
Warnings: None
Word Count: 1000
Prompt: #77 - Shocked
Author's Notes: I've found that I've never actually written a coffeeshop!AU, and this is terrible. Every writer should write at least one coffeeshop!AU once in there life, even if they never do it again afterwards. I dunno, this one just came to me out of nowhere, and the thought of Merlin squinting everywhere was kind of funny in my head. (Plus, I love Merlin wearing glasses, it's really adorable). So yeah, I kind of like this verse, and I definitely might expand on it. Please enjoy! The title is from this quote by Shakespeare. "Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind, and therefore is winged Cupid painted blind."
