Summary: Arthur’s wedding is arranged, and he sets about courting with the same dedication he shows to all tasks. But things don’t always run to plan.

Assumptions - wrtrs_blck
Title: Assumptions Part 1/3
Rating: R/NC-17
Warnings/Spoilers: For the show not really. Be warned though, this has not seen a beta and is my first fic in... an embarrassingly long time. Also first Merlin fic. There will be a post script to come later. I want to flesh out the ending but I have lots of work to do and I needed to get this off. Not to mention the other stuff I was writing before this plot bunny ate my brain.

Pairing: Arthur/Merlin
Rating: NC-17 for graphic sexual content

The Secret Life of a Warlock - ravenflight21
Genre: humour, fluff, romance
Summary: “All hail, the Mighty Merlin,” the man replied. Arthur, looking extremely amused, smirked at Merlin. He pulled a face as if to say “he’s obviously off his rocker, but we’d better humour him”.

A Day at the Museum - owlyscribblings
Summary: Just because it's not a French-approved exit doesn't mean it's not an exit.
A/N: Original version posted at kinkme_merlin for the request "Bradley/Colin, trapped." No actual kink here, sorry; that's my brain for you!
