Summary: When Hamish is diagnosed with cancer, his parents have two entirely separate ways of coping.
Review: Absolute sucker punch. Read the warnings carefully, because damn. Read only if you are prepared to have your heart forcefully ripped from your chest and tossed in a blender. If you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go read every happy fluffy fic in existence and never talk to anyone ever again.
Merlin stops eating. No-one notices, and then someone does.
this is a personal theme for me, so if you have dealt with stuff like this ever (yourself or friends of yours) be aware that this can be a problem. I’m critical with such themes because of personal reasons, but I must say, this one was really good. Its not too explicit but it focuses on all the bad things about eating disorders and their consequences. I thought it very interesting that you can also read from Arthurs pov, because as sad as Merlins fate is, sometimes seeing it through the eyes of someone who cares makes it so much worse. Its the helplessness of Arthur that got to me right from the start.
fandom: Teen Wolf pairing: Stiles/Derek length: 32 682 rating: Teen summary: He’s carefully balancing the sandwiches and the two biggest tupperware containers he could find that both had functioning lids when the front door opens and he almost drops everything right there in front of the stupid fountain. If that’s Derek Hale, he’s definitely not a mountain man.
Morgana is pregnant and doesn’t know who the father is, Gwen sleeps around with all the wrong men, Merlin meets Arthur and thinks he’s a tool, Arthur is getting married to the wrong person (who knew!) and it is possible Arthur is, actually, a complete tool after all. Or: Wherein Morgana Hires Merlin to Pretend to be Her Boyfriend So Arthur Doesn’t Find Out She’s a Big, Big Slutty Person.
I liked Arthur in this one very much. Besides the whole complicated situation its a really lovely story about people who are destined to be together no matter what. And pregnant Morgana is epic.
