Q is for Quote

        a quotation from a text or speech.

Dear Arthur,

I’m sure your are thinking it’s a trap. Maybe it is. I don’t know. The truth is I like you, alot, and it scared me. And as you know fear is the path to the dark side. I did something really stupid and a friend helped me realize that what I had with you is a good and precious thing.

I know it’s a lot to ask but I’m asking you to search your feelings. If there is anything there, please consider giving me, us a second chance.

I miss you

R is for Reconciliation

        the restoration of friendly relations

“Ok, so we go forward with the understanding that this is exclusive.”

Merlin smiled brightly at him, “Yes.”

S is for Stubborn

        having or showing dogged determination not to change one's attitude or position on
        something, especially in spite of good arguments or reasons to do so.

For Merlin, the weeks following their reconciliation were difficult. He struggled with Arthur and his need to hold him at a distance. They were both stubborn and unwilling to surrender completely to the others’ demands, the biggest one being that Merlin refused to give up Gwaine as a friend. The turn-around finally came when Merlin decided to take a big risk and surprise Arthur into meeting Gwaine. It went far better than expected. Gwaine got on with Arthur and his friends well and ended up joining their footie team. Things eased after that and they found themselves settling into the roles of mates.

T is for Tangled

        very involved : exceedingly complex

Time has a funny way of moving forward no matter the circumstances. If someone had asked Merlin that first day in the coffee shop where he would be in a year, nestled happily in Arthur’s arms wouldn’t have been it. As they danced close, he rested his head on Arthur’s shoulder and let the words of the song he had requested flow over him….

You're my world, the shelter from the rain
You're the pills that take away my pain
You're the light that helps me find my way
You're the words when I have nothing to say

And in this world where nothing else is true
Here I am still tangled up in you
I'm still tangled up in you
Still tangled up in you

God, did they have their differences. There were a few disagreements and fights, but at the end of the day this was where he wanted to be.

You're the fire that warms me when I'm cold
You're the hand I have to hold as I grow old
You're the shore when I am lost at sea
You're the only thing that I like about me

And in this world where nothing else is true
Here I am still tangled up in you
I'm still tangled up in you

There were still things he wanted to do, get a PhD in biochemistry, travel, maybe write a book, but he wanted to do it all with Arthur. Somehow, without him it just didn’t seem like he could.

How long has it been since this storyline began
And I hope it never ends and goes like this forever
In this world where nothing else is true
Here I am still tangled up in you, tangled up in you
I’m still tangled up in you
Still tangled up in you

U is for Undeniable

        clearly true : impossible to deny

It was absolutely undeniable. There was no way, no how, no amount of money, no person could get him to deny it. It showed in the smile on his face, in the sparkle of his eyes. It was obvious in the way he carried himself. Merlin was absolutely head over heels in love. Whatever fears he had once had long given way to the happiest he had ever felt.

Merlin thought he knew all the things he wanted, to get his PhD in biochemistry and help create an answer to the infertility crisis, hike the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, make some kind of significant contribution to the poor, have a cabin in the mountains. As a very forward thinking omega he had always thought he would just be someone’s baby maker, forced into a digenesis clinic when he turned 28 because of his radical ideas. He could now include on that list meet the mate of my dreams. The only thing he could think to add was bond and spend a wonderful life together.

V is for Victory

        a success attained in a contest or struggle

Arthur was the definition of winner. He was a strong, tall, and handsome alpha with blond hair and blue eyes. He was brilliant with a degree in business from Oxford. He was destined to be CEO of one of the top companies of Albion. And to top it all he was wealthy. He had omegas and betas throwing themselves at him left and right. Thanks to his father’s dealings he had met some of the most eligible omegas, gorgeous women with simpering personalities just looking to live in the lap of luxury. What he wanted was a challenge and he had found just that.

Arthur had planned it all out. He had spent all morning cleaning and hanging fairy lights and ribbons in the trees over the patio. He spent the whole of the afternoon cooking his famous chicken korma. He had the table set, music playing, the wine breathing and the ring in his pocket. What he had failed to account for was the neighbors evil cat.

It wasn’t the romantic setting he wanted. His pants were ripped, there was blood on his shirt, he had 14 stitches in his hand and a big goose egg on his forehead. The smell of blood and ammonia permeated the air. He was laid on a gurney waiting to hear if his wrist was broken.

Merlin ran a hand through his hair. “I’m sorry your dinner was ruined.”

Arthur stared down at his ruined shirt. “It was supposed to be perfect.”

Merlin lifted his chin, “I don’t need perfect. I just need you.” He gave him a gentle kiss.

Arthur opened his eyes and looked at him for a moment. A smile graced his face as he took Merlin’s hand. “Will you marry me?”

The song quoted in this fic is
Tangled Up In You by Staind
