Cupid Undone (Merlin/Arthur drabble, PG-13 for incest)

« previous entry | next entry »
May. 15th, 2009 | 02:53 am
mood: rejected._.


If only our parents had stayed together, we wouldn’t have ended up in this awkward situation.

Deep in his heart, Arthur knew this was a lie.

Arthur and Merlin. Merlin and Arthur. It was “precious” when they were five and Arthur claimed Merlin as his future bride.

It was teenage rebellion when they were fifteen and sneaked into each other’s rooms all summer long.

Now, they were twenty-five, and Arthur was running out of excuses for slamming his twin against their bedroom wall and whispering filthy things into his red, slick mouth.

If only we had met as total strangers.




A/N: Answers kinkme_merlin's prompt: Arthur/Merlin, reincarnation, one time they get re-born as brothers.
Also answers writing_game Cupid Undone prompt and merlin100's Awkward prompt.

If someone wants to make this long and pr0ny, be my guest. *beams*

One of these days I'll write canon incest. And by that I mean Arthur/Morgana, not Uther/Arthur =P Although Igraine/Tristan has potentials.

Whoa. The above 'wrong and hot' sums it up perfectly :D. I love the way this tiny piece gives an outline of their whole lives, nicely done!

Getting carried away, here's what I've worked out of their family history:

They're fraternal twins and look nothing alike except for their blue eyes. Their parents got separated when they were eight. Arthur went with his workaholic dad, and Merlin went with his OCD-ish overprotective mum, but they usually spent either summer or Christmas hols together.

They never spoke of The Incident When They Were Fifteen. They grew up, went to different schools, different universities, led very different lives in different parts of the city. And one night they bumped into each other in a bar. Arthur was toasting Lancelot's engagement to Gwen, and Will was plying Merlin with alcohol in light of Merlin's recent breakup.

And the rest is history.

;-)

*butts in*

It's from 1.13, when she drags Merlin into the cubby-thing and tells him it's only the beginning. I think!

I think this is it, thanks! It's been definitely too long since I watched season 1, I guess it's time to do something about it. :)

That was, as said above me, very hot and wrong. And such an interesting premise... Very well done <3

Oh, guh! (Um, I'm the first person that commented on kinkme_merlin, if that's, you know, of any importance.) I think you're doing just great and should keep on writing drabbles. ;o) I love the fact that they rarely saw each other - it creates this tension where they're aware of each other, aware of being brothers, but at the same time hardly know one another, probably bump heads because they can't imagine the other's life. Perhaps each a little jealous of what the other has. And at the same time, they have a reason to quite believably want to get closer to one another, to get to know one another, to confirm there is a link between them. And what with their fucked up lives, they might just do that in an unconventional way that would set their parents' hair up straight if they found out about it. (Also, I love the idea of Hunith/Uther, and their divorce. *g*)

Aww, thanks.

Yes, this <3

they have a reason to quite believably want to get closer to one another, to get to know one another, to confirm there is a link between them.

I love your meta on my tiny drabble =D

(Also, I love the idea of Hunith/Uther, and their divorce. *g*)

Hee, in my mind Uther is this crusty Dean of the English department. The type that still has an honest-to-god typewriter in his office. After the divorce, Hunith went back to school and learned to be a patissier. ;-)

If they are pretty and interesting, NO ONE is safe from my inner fangirl. ^___________________^ I have yet to find a fandom where I haven't fallen in love with at least one pairing. ;D

I did and oh my lord, I've only recently (as in last month) been making my way through Supernatural and don't feel the Wincest, but make Merlin and Arthur brothers and just GAH, SO GOOD.

(Sam and Dean's not pretty enough to tempt me *g*)

See, my incest kink is specific: reincarnation incest. So when it's M & A, presto! Instant angst, past memories as lovers, and built in justification for how f*d-up they are =P Oh, and throw in Uther and that's Daddy Issues right there.

Makes sense on all counts! I love the past memories-new challenges angle. Also, Uther.

Thank you =)

Man, so much easier to write ModernDay AU reincarnation incest than canon-time AU incest =P

Notice the influence of angsty sickly sweet animanga trope in the drabble? ;-)
And you've read the EPIC fic derryere wrote based on this, yeah?

I've read At Least It Would Seem That We Don't, which I love. But I have to say that stripped to its essence, this is just as awesome. Thanks for writing the most perfect drabble that spawned a kickass story.

Thank you for your kind comment.

I would write lots of drabbles answering kinkme_merlin's prompts in hopes of spawning fic, but I suspect it'll get annoying real fast ;-)
