Author's Notes: "For last year's words belong to last year's language. And next year's words await another voice. And to make an end is to make a beginning." – T. S. Eliot. Happy New Year, everybody! <3

“Are you ready?” Merlin’s hands are at his collar, adjusting it one final time before he smoothes the non-existent wrinkles from Arthur’s jacket and steps back. “I think you’re ready. What do you think?”

“I think I look fine.” Arthur catches Merlin’s belt, reeling him in again to kiss him softly. “We look fine. Stop fussing.”

“But it’s your first Christmas speech,” Merlin protests, half-hearted. “I just want to make sure everything is—perfect.”

Arthur just smiles at him; cheeks flushed, mouth bitten red, Merlin has never looked lovelier. “Trust me,” he says, taking his husband's hand. “It will be.”
