Playing Rough (Teen Wolf, Laura, Derek & Cora, G, 100 words)

Feb. 20th, 2014 | 10:50 pm

"Laura, the baby just hit me!" wailed a voice from the living room.

Laura sighed and left her spelling homework on the dining table.

"Okay, what happened here?"

"I was building a castle when baby knocked it over and hit me!" Her brother said, face red.

"A-guh?" Cora gurgled, and threw the wooden block she was gumming.

It hit Derek’s leg, and his face crumpled. "She did it again!"

"Derek," Laura put on her long-suffering big sister voice. "You're five. How will you survive kindergarten if you let Cora bully you?"

Derek rubbed his eyes. "But you'll be there, Laura."

"I don't know why you picked me for help," Scott said. "It's not like dancing comes included with the werewolf package."

"I bet Peter's having a ball," Stiles said darkly, slotting his arms around Scott's waist. "This is all his fault."

Scott didn't ask why. Alpha pack? Peter's fault. Fairies? Peter's fault. Global warming? Peter's fault.

"Hi, my name is Batman," said a hooded figure from the shade.

"You're not Batman; you're just a kid!" Four-year-old Jackson retorted.

The figure emerged from under the slides. "Is too!"

Jackson scrunched up his nose. "You're wearing orange. Batman doesn't wear orange."

"Mom said I can wear any color and still be Batman if I have my Batman ring on." He held out a blue plastic ring.

"I don't want your stupid ring." Jackson stalked off.

Batman Stilinski sighed. He spotted a brown-haired boy nearby.

Discovery (Merlin drabble, implied Arthur/Merlin, G)

May. 13th, 2012 | 01:37 pm

He swallowed again.

"Are you sure?" He looked into the knight's eyes, willing him to change his answer.

Bran had arrived at Camelot barely three months ago, and it was clear that he idolized the Crown Prince.

"Yes, sire." The young man sounded painfully earnest. "It was indeed sorcery; I saw it with my own eyes."

Arthur's lips were set in a thin line. How could Bran spend so much time under his command, and not realize how much Merlin meant to him?

"Very well." Arthur's voice was flat. "I will inform my father of this matter personally. You’re dismissed."

The Cobweb of Family Secrets (Sherlock, John and Harry, PG, 100 words)

Apr. 17th, 2012 | 01:22 pm

“Tell me about your flatmate.”

“What’d you like to know?” John asked his sister warily.

“Is he an axe murderer, is there a closet of butchered bodies…?”

“He keeps human eyeballs in a microwavable jar,” John muttered into his coffee.


“Sherlock.” John set down his mug. “Eccentric, brilliant, plays the violin at unreasonable hours, solves crimes—he also deduced that you’re an alcoholic from the mobile phone you gave me.”

Harry’s mouth dropped open. “John, you didn’t.”

“You know I wouldn’t.”

The corner of his mouth twitched. “You don’t need to breathe for Sherlock to infer your innermost secrets.”

Uncharted Territory (one-sided Arthur/Merlin, Merlin/Freya, PG, 100 words)

Sep. 14th, 2010 | 09:02 pm

Arthur often ribbed Merlin about Professor Nimueh or his flatmate Gwen, but this was uncharted territory.

Merlin had blown him off two Fridays in a row to help Freya; there seemed to be a new academic crisis whenever Merlin was supposed to be spending time with his best friend.

Arthur sat alone in a cafe and stared at his mobile.

"I'm sorry!" Merlin materialized in front of him, breathless. "I was leaving on time, but Freya—"

"Did you sleep with her?" Arthur blurted out.

"Wh-whatever gave you that idea?"

As the blush rose on Merlin's face, Arthur's heart sank.

Arthur waved at his laptop screen. "What's this—this pornographic poem you've posted for all the world to see?"

"Technically I mailed the postcard, and the site owner put it up. Wow, he actually picked my postcard." Merlin beamed.

"Never mind that!" Arthur said, impatient. "Who gave you permission to write porn about the Prince of Wales?"

"Why would you think it's about you?" Merlin asked, smiling coyly. "That's a Prince Albert apple."

Arthur snorted. "A prince's flavour. Real subtle, Merlin."

"Yeah? Well we are playing knight and dragon."

"Merlin wants to have tea with us, don't you Merlin?" Morgana asked sweetly.

"No! He wants nothing to do with your stupid tea!"

For the Thirty-first Time (Will, Merlin, Gaius, implied Merlin/Arthur, PG-13, 100 words)

Jul. 17th, 2010 | 04:28 pm

Merlin seriously regretted telling Will that today was his and Arthur’s one-month anniversary.

“Like a virgin, touched for the thirty-first time.”

“Shut it!” Merlin hissed.

“Like a viiiiirgin,” Will warbled.

Merlin usually plied Will with drinks until his friend belt out Madonna songs during karaoke nights. But this was not acceptable.

“Mr Matthews, unless you’re singing about atomic attraction, stop that incessant noise at once.

Will shut up real quick.

“Sorry Professor Gaius,” Merlin mumbled.

“Thirty-one times, Mr Emrys?” The professor’s eyebrow reached unprecedented heights. “Even for someone your age, surely daily anal sex is inadvisable.”

Sunday tradition dictates Merlin showing up at nine bearing breakfast, just in time to greet Arthur from his morning run.

“Donuts again, Merlin? It’s a miracle your eyes haven’t turned brown.”

Arthur secretly loves Merlin’s Sunday offerings. In the past two years, they never repeated even once.

Merlin grinned. “It’s raspberry glaze this week. The owner swears it’s his best yet.”

He took a big bite and chewed. “Aren’t you having any? They’re really good.” He licked glaze off of his fingertips.

Leaning forward, Arthur licked the corner of Merlin’s mouth.

"We can cuddle for warmth?" Merlin suggested hopefully.

“Never knew my dad. Might be a half-blood for all I know,” Merlin said lightly.

mood: calm calm

When Arthur was six, he faced down a dragon with a wooden sword.

The dragon (a monster as big as a mountain!) took one look at his toy sword and snorted.

"You don't scare me, dragon! Knights always kill the monsters in the end!"

"Prince Arthur Pendragon," the dragon said, as if Arthur had not spoken. "The world will kill and eat you. But not if you eat the heart of the world first."

Arthur frowned. The dragon wasn’t following the storyline.

"Two golden children sharing one destiny."

“A prince’s favour is a precious commodity,” his father once told him before taking his favourite horse away.

Arthur had taken the lesson to heart, doling out equal camaraderie to noblemen’s sons and equal flattery to their daughters.

Except he had slipped horribly—over Merlin, of all people—and it was no use to protest that he’s mine or you gave him to me, because he had not forgotten that Apple was a present when he turned seven.

His father had no rights on his manservant (his friend, his favourite), and still he left marks of possession on Merlin’s skin.

The Headmaster's Son (Merlin/Arthur AU, PG-13, 100 words)

Of all the barely legal men out there, why did he fixate on the headmaster’s son?

Arthur was a good student who didn’t give the staff any trouble. Except for his Literature teacher.

On Tuesdays, Merlin always wore long jackets, because Arthur would be right there with his pouty lips and pen-biting.

Today, Arthur had stayed behind and ambushed Merlin with a kiss. Of course, the headmaster just happened to wander by.

Lifting guilty hands from Arthur’s shoulders—to push him away, not clutch him closer—Merlin contemplated throwing himself out the midget-sized window.
