Of Ghosts and Gooseberries

Title: Of Ghosts and Gooseberries
Author: Harlequin
Universe: Merlin
Characters featured: Leon, Arthur, Merlin
Category, Word count: Short story; 2,010 words
Rating: PG13
Summary: Arthur is rather surprised when Leon visits him late one night in order to read him poetry.
Notes: A humble offering for my dear friend Cello on her birthday … with apologies that the story didn’t turn out quite as Leon or I wished! (My sister suggests I write a sequel for you, for your next birthday.)
Set immediately following ep 503 The Death Song of Uther Pendragon, and humbly borrowing Poem #31 by Sappho.
Just in case it’s not clear, the word “gooseberry” in this context is an informal British usage: “a third person in the company of two people, especially lovers, who would prefer to be alone, e.g. ‘they didn’t want me playing gooseberry on their first date’.”

Beltane

Title: Beltane
Author: Harlequin
Universe: Merlin
Characters featured: Gaius/Merlin
Category, Word count: Short story; 4,200 words
Rating: R
Summary: Gaius hasn’t seen Merlin since the aftermath of Camlann, and misses him dreadfully, but the Beltane celebrations bring a number of visitors to Camelot along with the promise of renewed life.
Notes: For riventhorn, in humble gratitude for the beautiful story Ember Day, and also for isisanubis and moonflower999. I love that you all love these two men as much as I do.
With humble apologies to those who know far more about Beltane and all things medieval than I do. I’m afraid I went with the show’s example of wantonly borrowing and adapting only what suited the story.
