Author's Notes: Well I tried. Happy holidays to amarie! I love your writing (Momo!) and I was glad you were my recipient. And that was a killer prompt – unfortunately the fic sort of ran away from me at a few points.
Also, thanks to jelazakazone for the super-fast beta and all the good advice(a lot of which I couldn't find the time to include in this one, so watch out for a possible sequel!). And finally, thank you mods for a great fest. My first one here, and I loved it!

Little Lights Shining

Title: Little Lights Shining
Recipient:aeris444
Author: clea2011
Rating: NC-17
Pairing/s: Arthur/Merlin, background Morgana/Leon
Summary: The risk of Arthur, as the non-magic half of the partnership, falling pregnant was statistically very low.  In fact, it was almost unheard of.  And so he never really worried about it.  Not until it was far, far too late.
Warnings: Mpreg, fluff
Word Count: 4695
Author's Notes: Happy holidays aeris444.  I've tried to incorporate all of your main prompt request.  Thanks to fififolle for the beta.

Rating: PG-13
Pairing/s: Merlin/Arthur
Summary: Arthur comes home to the tiny town of Ealdor for the holidays, with every intention of telling Merlin how he feels. Things don't exactly go according to plan, but maybe that's because he didn't have a plan to begin with.

Dear Arthur, Dear Merlin

Title: Dear Arthur, Dear Merlin
Recipient:wrecksfic
Author: enigma1001
Rating: PG (probably PG-13 in reality for derogatory language)
Pairing/s: Merlin/Arthur
Summary: In which a princess arrives in Camelot, Arthur tells a bold lie to dodge an engagement, and Merlin has some things to say about it.
Warnings: None (some mild angst and bad language)
Word Count: 5332 (I got a leeetle carried away)
Author's Notes: Dear wrecksfic, you listed three awesome story tropes you liked (which are definitely among my favorites too!) and so I combined two of them: 1) fake relationships and 2) epistolary stories. I hope you have as much fun reading this as I had writing it! Happy holidays!

where kings tread on hallowed ground

exchange fic for digthewriter: to yield

Title: to yield
Recipient: digthewriter
Author: simpleact
Rating: PG13
Pairing: Merlin/Arthur.
Summary: Arthur opens his mouth to protest but Merlin shakes his head. “I don’t know why this is so hard for you to understand, but I am destined to protect you and stay at your side. I need to be there with you. Even if you leave without me I’ll just follow after and protect you from the shadows.”


Merlin pauses, tilting his head downwards in an uncharacteristic show of subservience. “As I have done before.”


The last sentence is like a punch to the gut, a reminder of all the years that Arthur was blissfully ignorant of Merlin’s importance in his survival. He sucks in a breath, quiet and sudden. Merlin’s insistent loyalty into battle has always confused him. The quickening of his heart is a new symptom.
Warnings: None.
Word Count: 2392
Author's Notes: Oh my gosh, I'm so sorry if this doesn't work with the prompt you asked for. I hope you like it anyway! Merry Christmas!
Disclaimer: Merlin ain't mine, yo.
