Title: Looking Back
Rating: G
Pairing/s: Arthur/Merlin
Character/s: Arthur, Merlin
Warnings: Ridiculous fluff
Word Count: 179
Prompt: Looking Back
Author's Notes: I promise I'l get back to The Email Order Bridegroom once these allergies stop wreaking merry havoc with my sinuses.

In retrospect Arthur should have seen this coming. He realizes he shouldn’t have bullied dead on his feet Merlin into going to Morgana’s New Year’s Open House after pulling a double in the ER the second his bleary eyed boyfriend takes the champagne flute from his hand and chugs it straight down.

Engagement ring and all.

Half an hour later they’re tucked up in bed, Arthur apologizing yet again for the stupid romantic gesture.

Merlin gives him a sleepy smile and a kiss. “You should have expected I'd do something like this but you’re marrying me anyway.”

Arthur smiles back, hopeful. “So that’s a yes?”

“When we get the ring back, we’ll give it a good scrub and you can try this again. No spoilers,” Merlin says, turning off his light. “Don’t do anything daft like tying it to a dove, though. I’d really like to get that ring on my finger one day.”

Arthur grins and shuts off his light before pulling his pliant, sleepy almost fiancé in for a cuddle. “Happy New Year, Merlin.”

“Happy New Year, Arthur,” Merlin mumbles into his pillow.

Title: There Is No Grief like the Grief That Does Not Speak
Rating: PG
Characters/pairings: Merlin, Hunith, Old Man Simmons
Summary: Canon-era. Merlin grieves the loss of Arthur.
Words: 1095
Warnings: Grief, Past Character Deaths
Prompt: 243 - Looking Back
A/N I should probably apologize for the excessive grief I am about to subject you to. This past week has been one of those weeks – one of my favorite singers died on Christmas and a few days later we witnessed a mother’s love for her daughter that was beautiful (tragic, but oh so beautiful) – so of course I was going to write something sad and angsty for this prompt. The title is a quote by Henry Wordsworth. Happy New Year!
