Hi my name is (Teen Wolf, Stiles, Jackson & Scott, G, 100 words)

Apr. 9th, 2013 | 06:55 pm

"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.

"Hi, I'm Batman. Wanna play?"

Scott smiled. "Hi, Batman. What are we gonna play?"

"Enchanted No More" (one-sided Vivian/Arthur, Vivian/Leon, 500 words)

Aug. 14th, 2010 | 11:36 pm

I've always wanted to address Vivian's fate after Merlin 2 X 10, in which she remained enchanted and would continue to be so until someone she truly loved kisses her. Her fate is even more disturbing than A Midsummer Night's Dream's Demetrius, who is, after all, an unfaithful, inconstant jerk.

How is the enchantment ever to be broken since:
a) Vivian is young and never falls in love before (unlike Arthur/Merlin Arthur/Gwen), and
b) Vivian's dad would kill and decapitate anyone who dares touch his precious daughter?

This is not that fic.

It's a silly modern-day!AU ficlet for [livejournal.com profile] summerpornathon, because BY GOODNESS I cannot address the above issue in just 500-750 words.

Title: Enchanted No More

Pairing: one-sided Vivian/Arthur, Vivian/Leon

Knight and Dragon's Tea Party (Arthur, Morgana, Merlin, G, 100 words)

Jul. 28th, 2010 | 03:26 am

"Arthur, what are you doing with my tea tray?"

"This isn't your tea tray; it's my chest plate!" Arthur informed his sister smugly.

"Arthur, give it back! Gwen and I are having a tea party."

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

"Hi, Morgana," Merlin said, voice muffled behind the paper plate dragon mask he was wearing.

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

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

"We have chocolate biscuits."

Merlin took off his mask. "Please, Arthur? This dragon is hungry."

"Oh, alright," Arthur groused.

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.”

Will is so dead.

A/N: "atomic attraction" suggested by [livejournal.com profile] rea_saint as being geeky. I also considered "molecular bonds," but I can't ignore how Atomic Attraction sounds like a girl band X-D
Also, what's Will's usual surname in modern day AUs? I think I saw "Will Matthews" once, but I'm not sure...

The Non-Vegetarian Option (Hunith, Merlin, implied Merlin/Arthur, PG, 100 words)

Jul. 13th, 2010 | 07:45 am

“When you leave, take some of the beef stew home with you.”

Merlin swallowed his spoonful of stew and nodded. “Yes, Mum.”

“Are you eating right, Merlin?” Hunith looked concerned. “You're not skipping meals just to save money, are you?”

“Yes, Mum,” Merlin said soothingly. “You know Arthur insists on having three meals a day.”

“Well, I'm glad that boy is taking good care of you.” Hunith reached across the table and squeezed his hand.

Merlin smiled at her.

“You need some meat on that skinny frame of yours. I bet Arthur would love to grab and squeeze—”

A Less-Than-Mystical Evening (Merlin/Arthur, PG, 100 words)

Jun. 29th, 2010 | 09:48 pm

"When you said 'a mystical evening on the beach,' this was not what I expected."

Arthur toed the scarf-sized blanket.

"But Arthur—"

"No buts!" Arthur pointed his finger at his boyfriend. "I'm missing football on telly for this; there should at least be a bottle of wine."

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

"As skinny as your arse is, Merlin, I don't think both of us can fit onto that handkerchief you call a blanket."

Merlin sighed. The blanket promptly transformed into a familiar beaten red couch.


Pulling Merlin close to his side, Arthur smiled. "Much."

Golden Children (Arthur & dragon gen, PG, 100 words)

Sep. 21st, 2009 | 03:39 pm
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."

In the morning, he would think that it was all a dream.

Answers [community profile] merlin100's sword prompt & [community profile] writing_game's exasperating prompt
The dragon's prophecy is inspired by Sylvia Plath's poem "Mary's Song" ("O golden child the world will kill and eat.")

"First Time" & "Extracurricular Service" (Merlin/Arthur drabbles, PG-13)

May. 22nd, 2009 | 05:24 pm

First Time (Merlin/Arthur drabble, PG-13)

The first time Merlin kissed Arthur, they were standing on an ocean of grass.

Merlin trembled a little, and the kiss remained chaste until Arthur pulled at his stupid scarf—trust Merlin to be wearing a scarf on a glorious summer day—and plundered Merlin's lips.

The grass was heavy with dew, and later Arthur would find mud dotting the back of his jeans. But right this moment he could only listen to the tiny sounds Merlin made at the back of his throat.

The first time Arthur kissed Merlin, just two nights ago, he had thought Merlin was asleep.

Extracurricular Service (implied Merlin/Arthur, PG-13 for suggestiveness)

"Well, this is awkward," Merlin said from his kneeling position on the floor.

Gwen let out a helpless giggle behind her hand. Lancelot, ever the gentlemanly knight, kept his eyes on Merlin's face. He was favoring his left ankle, Merlin noted. A sprain from training exercises, perhaps.

Arthur, red-faced and flustered, pulled on his long red tunic. "You're giving them the wrong idea!"

"Right, of course," Merlin said distractedly. "I wasn't performing any...extracurricular service. I was merely giving the king a physical examination."

"Oh, is that what they're calling it these days?" Gwen said with a smirk worthy of Morgana.

Seven Deadly Sins (Merlin drabbles, 7 X 100 words)

May. 4th, 2009 | 09:12 pm

Sloth & Pride are companion drabbles. Everything else stands on its own. I'm not cool enough to make all seven drabbles related, sadly.
I want to do another sins set in the future (with different characters & prefferrably an interconnected storyline) because these ones come across as sympathetic & rather tame.


"Gluttony" - Gaius, G
Gaius grew up in a small village where going hungry during lean winters was a fact of life. )

"Wrath" - Uther, Igraine, G
Given time, perhaps his queen could have tempered his iron grip )

"Envy" - Morgana, PG
If only she could trade her visions )

"Sloth" - Merlin, Arthur, G
If he had polished Arthur's armour by hand, this wouldn't have happened. )

"Pride" - Arthur, Merlin, G
Arthur had always prided himself of his judgment. )

"Lust" - Lancelot/Gwen, Arthur, PG-13
The first time it happened, they were young and carefree in love. )

"Greed" - Mordred, Arthur, G
'Your precious prince, now grown old to be a pitiful king.' )

1. Is there a Merlin LDWS comm. somewhere? We have Merlin tweetfic comm., there should be a Merlin LDWS, yeah?
LJ, IJ, DW, doesn't matter.

2. Also, LDWS comm.s, why the high upper limit? 499-word = flopsy, not a drabble. And 1K words = ficlet, not a drabble.
This is what modding a drabble community get you, you turn into a purist without realizing it =P

3. You know what Merlin pastiche hasn't been done yet? Merlin/FMA. So, Merlin characters in an FMA-like world.
Consider this: magic ~ balance // alchemy ~ equivalent exchange.

Merlin saves Arthur's life but Something Goes Horribly Wrong. Arthur comes back to life, but now he's caught in a never-ending loop of Saving the Day and Dying a Bloody, Tragic Death at a Terribly Young Age.
After the however many times Merlin had Arthur dying in his arms, Merlin swears to break the circle. But what does Merlin have left to offer up in exchange (and not having Arthur die on him again?)

Depressing plotbunny is depressing.

"I saw him first!" Merlin protested.

"He smiled at me!"

"No way is someone that gorgeous straight."

"Contrary to what you believe, Merlin, people can be attracted to both genders."

"Uh-huh, they’re called Closet Cases," he said with a straight face. "Or, Morgana-is-just-a-roommate-nothing-happened-Merlin."

Predictably, Gwen smacked his arm.

"Oh God, he's coming over here. What do I do?" Gwen hid her face behind a cupped hand.

"Did you change your mind? Can I have him?"

"I'll keep his blond friend distracted; you go and dazzle him." Merlin slid down his bar stool. "Good luck!"
