3 Cookies For Santa "What... do you mean you never believed in Santa Claus?" Merlin asks, blinking at Arthur.

3 Do Or Die Stopping mid-stroke, Arthur took the quill and put it back in the inkwell, looked back up at Merlin with a tired expression and demanded to know what was with that look Merlin always seemed to be giving him these days—because it really was becoming rather annoying and distracting—and, okay, endearing, too, in the right light, not that that was a thought was about to voice.

5 A Usual Proposal He was going to ask Merlin to marry him, he'd already decided on that, already had a plan, the ring—everything. Well, everything but the words. The way he would actually ask. And really, the rest of the plan didn't actually matter if he couldn't find the right words to go with it.

12 Because I Love You Lancelot is chuckling then, however, the most sober of them all, other than Merlin, and Arthur's attention is caught on him, head whipping and eyes moving reluctantly from Merlin to Lancelot, his muddled thoughts answered before he can sort through them enough to wonder anything aloud. "It's love, Arthur," he says, "You're... in love with Merlin."

8 Warm Arthur, Sleepy Arthur "Shut. Up." Arthur growls, cracking his eyes, unable to help the pout on his face when they catch on Merlin's smile. He wonders, for a moment, if he can pass a law forbidding people from smiling before noon.

4 Just Sex The way he peppered kisses down Merlin's jawline felt like it more than answered all of Merlin's lingering doubts. The way he caught Merlin's lips and kissed him so sweetly and gently felt like it meant something. The way he whimpered and moaned Merlin's name—like a plea some nights, like a promise others—as he fell apart at the seams…Well, it all as good as added up, didn't it?

11 And Then There Was Nothing And the first time, sitting around the fire, the air heavy with loss and pain, that Arthur had clasped Merlin's hand in his own, he didn't recognize the way Merlin cut his eyes at him, maybe surprised, maybe pleased, but… He hadn't pulled away.

8 Please Tell Me You Don't Do That With Lancelot Did Arthur mention that he was not jealous? Not at all? "You're jealous of all the time I've been spending with Lancelot—though I can't imagine why, since most of my day and life is spent with you or doing things for you or thinking about you—honestly, there isn't much of my life that isn't already all about you, so why the hell you would ever need to be jealous is—"

5 Experience Shoving Arthur against his chamber door wasn't... unpleasant, exactly. Losing himself as he pressed harsh, hurried kisses to Arthur's neck, along his jawline—it was all as far from unpleasant as it got, to be perfectly honest.
