Title: Stay

Pairing(s)/Character(s): Gwen/Morgana, Gwen/Lancelot/Arthur/Merlin, Lancelot/Gwen/Morgana/Arthur/Merlin

Rating: NC-17

Word Count: ~6300

Summary: Gwen was fairly certain it was Wednesday, four days after the fever had taken hold, but she couldn’t be entirely sure.

Written for [livejournal.com profile] vicky_v for [livejournal.com profile] camelotsolstice. This was inspired by her first (Gwen/Morgana: “Gift”) and third (Lancelot/Gwen/Morgana/Arthur/Merlin: “You don’t have to fight alone”) prompts. Happy Solstice!

Thank you to SF for the incredibly quick beta work, and thank you to the amazing Solstice mods for organising the challenge.


Gwen was awake when Merlin brought her in. )


This was interesting (and difficult, in some ways) to write, because I'd never written polyamoury before and didn't want to make a hash of it. Thank you for the opportunity, [livejournal.com profile] vicky_v!

Title: Seven Magpies

Pairing(s)/Character(s): Merlin/Arthur

Word Count: Roughly 33,000.

Summary: Arthur opened his eyes a minute later to the sight of seven magpies streaking across the top of the clearing, their shapes dark against the white clouds and the muted grey of the sky. He tried to remember what it was that seven magpies meant—he’d had a nurse who had sung the rhyme to him as a child—but couldn’t.

Written for [livejournal.com profile] shiny_starlight for [livejournal.com profile] camelotsolstice.

In response to her wanting an AU, or maybe some sort of meet-the-family fic, or maybe something that was somehow blue. Born simultaneously of all three prompts. Set at wintertime because it’s Solstice fic. Y, politically forward Hunith is for you.

With many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] arlad for her willingness to take a look at this on short notice.

Arthur wakes up somewhere he doesn’t recognise, but where he clearly belongs.

Er, I called this “The Family Man Story” while I was writing, if that helps.

Season Two has been difficult for me: I just can’t make sense of the dynamics I once thought I knew well, and writing these characters in a canon-compliant way has become more and more of a struggle. This is partly an attempt to deal with Arthur’s weirdo character regression this season.


David Diamond and David Weissman wrote The Family Man. I… apologise.

I wrote this story in a desperate two-day rush the day before my deadline (having grown very unhappy with an original draft) and it's not the thing I'm happiest with. In some ways, though, all creative endeavours are good creative endeavours, and so here it is.
