Aug-20th-2016 12:57 pm - Art: The Mountain Lily
Once and Future
Pairing: Merlin/ Arthur
Warnings: None
Summary: Merlin hears an otherworldly trilling while traveling in the mountains. It sounds like a dragon, but not quite. To his surprise, he finds a nixie. And not just any nixie, the very prince of nixies. Needless to say, his highness is equally surprised. The only person totally chill with all of this is Aithuzah, because it really was about damned time.

Author: greymantledlady
Rating: PG
Warnings: None
Summary: Merlin stands in the corner and fixes his eyes on Arthur’s face, because he thinks he might scream if he looks anywhere else. So he just looks, and looks, and looks at Arthur, at Arthur’s strong fierce jawline and proud beautiful nose and kind mouth, while Uther’s voice fills up and reverberates around the inside of his head. And every so often Arthur glances at Merlin, and it’s like a lifeline between them.

Summary: ‘Come on,’ Merlin teases, leaning forward to prop his elbows on the table and rest his chin on his hands. ‘You want to as much as I do.’
‘Two days, and not a moment less,’ Arthur says implacably.

Summary: Arthur makes a grumbling sound and holds tighter, one of Merlin's knees trapped warmly between his legs, his hand fisted in Merlin's shirt. Merlin blushes even more hotly as the shirt slips off his shoulder, grabbing at it to pull it back. 'Arthur!' he hisses. 'Arthur, let go of me, please! There's someone at the door!'

https://i0.wp.com/66.media.tumblr.com/ae33ac6e5b88f33f06516804b83f5a58/tumblr_o83n3bSgVA1uhoa9xo3_r1_500.jpg

The Merthur Art Calendars

Both calendars contain exclusive, unpublished fanart by a whole bunch of incredibly talented artists. Both calendars feature different artworks, all of which is safe for work, but with definite slashy undertones. (You could probably make your colleagues think that it’s nothing but an epic bromance though, if you tried hard enough.)

And just in case this hasn’t been obvious in all the amazing previews you’ve seen around before: Every piece of art for these calendars is absolutely gorgeous, and stuffed full of Merthury goodness and fluffy feelings. Every page is different and beautiful. Seeing all this incredible talent in one place is truly a privilege and will give you loads of warm and fuzzy Merthur feelings. Promise!

Curious? Excited? Hungry to order?

boreas, john william waterhouse
Title: Look After You
Author: greymantledlady
Rating: G
Warnings: None, just sick!Arthur and lots of cuddles and fluff and sweetness. :)
Summary: Merlin sits on the side of the bed. 'Arthur,' he says. 'Are you sick?'
Arthur huddles in the bedclothes. 'Throat hurts,' he croaks, and swallows painfully.
(Arthur is sick, and Merlin takes care of him. But Arthur wants something more, and he won't say what it is.)
Author's Note:
Kind of pre-slash, I guess. But there's lots of cuddling, and they fall asleep together, and they're generally just about this close.

Summary: Merlin works at an advertisement agency when Arthur is appointed to be the foto model for the new campaign. And an additional tv spot. Too bad that the co-character already quits after two days and Merlin is the one who has to jump in. He quickly finds out that Arthur isn't a prat as he seemed to be, or is he?

Warnings: Um, Arthur being a prat? :)
Summary: ‘Merlin!’ Arthur explodes – and then stops, because Merlin has dropped to his knee on the floor, his face turned away and his arms cradled oddly to his chest; and his shoulders are shaking a little. And something in Arthur’s chest twists sharply, and he hears himself saying in quite a different voice, ‘Merlin? Merlin!’

Summary: There’s a long moment where they look at each other, and Arthur’s hand is still warm and protective on Merlin’s shoulder, and Arthur has that deep serious wonderful look again, like he’s looking right inside him. And Arthur is moving closer, and his eyes are very tender and his lips are parted–
    And the door rattles, and they leap apart.

Author: greymantledlady
Rating: G
Warnings: Spoilers for 3x04 'Gwaine'. This will probably be confusing to those who haven't watched the episode.
Summary: ‘You know, I’m going to be fighting them tomorrow,’ Arthur says, ‘and believe me, they will pay dearly for this.’ He touches Merlin’s sore shoulder, brief and gentle. ‘As your champion, Merlin, it’s only fitting that I should wear your token, don’t you think?’
  He looks at Merlin, softly smiling, teasing, and Merlin’s cheeks are burning like fire and he can't hold Arthur's gaze.

Author: greymantledlady
Rating: G
Warnings: Angst, light D/S
Summary: Merlin dashes fiercely at the tears that have started to trickle down his face, and waits. Because if Arthur wants to take him back to Camelot as a prisoner, to a cold cell and death in the grey morning – if that is what Arthur wants, Merlin will let him, because he can’t deny Arthur anything.
And Arthur takes Merlin’s shoulders in a hard, almost bruising grip, and he’s breathing hard, and Merlin’s crying messily, because he just can’t seem to stop and he’s more scared than he’s ever been in his life.

Title: Culmination
Author: greymantledlady
Rating: G
Warnings: Light D/S; mostly just sweet fluff
Summary: Arthur holds him firmly, just out of reach, and soothes him with his hand on the nape of Merlin’s neck. ‘Shh,’ he says, ‘shh. Just calm down.’ He waits, a finger dipping down beneath Merlin’s neckscarf and stroking lightly, and Merlin pants and writhes a little. Arthur holds him quite still.
Author's Note: Arthur is a sweet golden puppy and Merlin is a tiny newborn kitten and I can’t be held responsible for anyone’s reactions to their extreme cuteness. :)

IN THE SHADOWS

Title: Like Dogs and Kittens
Author: greymantledlady
Rating: G
Warnings: None, just fluff and cuteness.
Summary: Gaius never knew quite how Merlin had persuaded, or wiled, the Crown Prince of Camelot to come and take the dog away for him. But there he was, striding in with Merlin tagging adoringly at his heels. Set post 1x02 'Valiant', because I was wondering what happened to the dog in the end.
Author's Note: My headcanon is that Merlin is a complete cat person and doesn't like dogs licking and pawing him - based on how he reacts when the statue-turned-real-dog jumps up at him. Idk, I just thought fastidious!Merlin was rather adorable. And Arthur coming to his rescue! I'm still not sure how Merlin managed that, but it was too cute not to write.
