mood: touchedBad touch! Bad touch!

Of all the barely legal men out there, why did he fixate on the headmaster’s son?

Arthur was a good student who didn’t give the staff any trouble. Except for his Literature teacher.

On Tuesdays, Merlin always wore long jackets, because Arthur would be right there with his pouty lips and pen-biting.

Today, Arthur had stayed behind and ambushed Merlin with a kiss. Of course, the headmaster just happened to wander by.

Lifting guilty hands from Arthur’s shoulders—to push him away, not clutch him closer—Merlin contemplated throwing himself out the midget-sized window.

What is the meaning of this?”

symetric gave me the prompt: Merlin/Arthur, Uther finds out and there's no way out for Merlin. She didn’t say I can’t write a ModernDay!AU, so =P

In other news, people should go check out cliche_bingo, a multi-fandom challenge (no deadline, min. 500 words for fic, you can do recs/fanarts/icons instead, etc.) Will make a proper pimping post later, although they really don't need it.

What happens next & some trivia, for those who're interested

Uther didn't want to cause a scandal, so he strongly hinted at Merlin that he should resign. He then wrote the most perfunctory letter of reference ever. Poor Merlin ended up being a substitute teacher. A lot.

Arthur wouldn't give up and tracked Merlin down once he was in uni.

If you want to find out more, go pester symetric.

Arthur saw his Lit teacher as a rival to Merlin's affections (Merlin was as clueless as ever re: the Lit teacher's subtle flirting. He didn't catch on to Arthur's seduction attempt until Arthur molested various writing utensils, after all.)

Arthur would obsessively do his reading assignments and raise his hand whenever the Lit teacher made a mistake. Meanwhile, the Lit teacher wished he could teach History instead, because even Arthur Pendragon couldn't contradict historical facts, by Jove!
