by drew and menelaos

season 5, episode 4 : Lady of the Lake

present : Henry pays a visit to Mr. Gold’s pawn shop and shows a particular interest in a sword with a golden hilt that the store’s curator identifies as King Arthur’s Excalibur. On his way home, Henry encounters an elderly woman and offers to help her cross the street. Meanwhile, fueled by his fear of losing Emma and Mary Margaret forever, David’s mental state begins to worsen, and he hunts down the former March Hare and White Rabbit, hoping that the Land of Wonder’s odd relationship with time will have given them some experience that could help him in this quest. Torn between his duties to Evelyn as deputy mayor and his healing relationship with Mr. Gold, Nathaniel struggles to find his place in Storybrooke, and turns to Henry for guidance.

past : Emma and Mary Margaret set off with Lancelot toward Camelot, joined at the last minute by Mulan. On the way to Camelot, they pass the great Lake of Avalon and Lancelot tells them of its protector, the Lady of the Lake. Once a woman called Viviane who bestowed the sword Excalibur upon King Arthur, the Lady has since been replaced by Arthur’s sister Morgan le Fay, who apprenticed under Merlin, learned his magic, and trapped him in the tree. The group collects water from the Lake, hoping it will help them free Merlin, but they accidentally awaken the spirits guarding the Lake and must face their wrath. Back at Castle Misthaven, Aurora confesses to her husband that she’s been having strange dreams of thorns and fire, and Phillip becomes particularly alarmed when she awakens one morning with burns and scars on her arms and legs.

E/R snow day with a lot of cuddling

Enjolras does not do days off. He doesn’t even have weekends; he has extended workdays instead. So the morning that he wakes up to find that a snow storm has blown past the city last night and left it covered in a thick layer of ice, he groans. He groans really loudly.

‘I’m not telepathically sucking your dick, am I? Though think of how useful that would be the next time someone’s hitting on you,’ Grantaire mumbles beside him, his hair an unruly curtain over his face. 'Why are you making sex noises? Also why the fuck is it so fucking cold?

Enjolras thrusts his mobile at Grantaire’s face. ‘Look, R, look.’

The other man sweeps his overlong fringe aside, squinting sleepy at the smartphone hovering a few inches from his face.


'Huh.’ Grantaire grabs the phone from his fingers and starts typing a reply, propped up on his elbows. Enjolras buries his face into Grantaire’s bicep, thinking about how far behind they will be if they miss a day of work. There’s a meeting that he can’t put off later, and Marius needs a final debrief before he flies to New York tomorrow. His feet kick out in worry-reflex and he hisses when the cold air quickly wraps around his bare ankles. He drags his feet inside the duvet, shaping his body into a comma that will slot into Grantaire’s space just so. There’s a spot on his chest that Enjolras likes to poke his nose into, so he does, and a moment later he feels Grantaire shifting aside to accommodate him.

He really has a lot of important work to do today.

Except that Grantaire feels exceptionally warm, and Enjolras can feel himself sinking more bonelessly into the bed.

'Done,’ Grantaire announces, and there’s the sound of a phone rattling on top of the beside table. 'You’re officially not the asshole who makes everybody work on a snow day. Congratulations.’

Enjolras stiffens and sits up, the blanket falling off his shoulders and dear god is it cold. ‘I can’t,’ Enjolras says, even as his fingers grip the edge of the duvet to bring it back up his chest. His gaze flicks over to the window but the curtains are impenetrable. ‘Grantaire, I can’t. There’s too much work to be done and a little bit of snow never killed anyone. I won’t make the others come in if they don’t want to, but I have responsibilities and — ‘

Grantaire sighs and reaches for Enjolras’ arm, dragging him back down to bed still protesting. ‘Enjolras, my love, you have been given a day to literally chill out. Take advantage of it. I don’t want to be a widower before I reach thirty.’

'No one ever died from a bit of hard work,’ Enjolras mutters petulantly but eventually he sighs and cuddles into Grantaire once more with a thoroughly put upon look on his face.

'Let’s not make you the first, then,’ Grantaire mumbles as he presses a kiss on top of Enjolras’ head.
