treacherously

anonymous asked:

Hey! Sorry to bother you but I lost a fic and have a terrible feeling that it's been deleted, but here goes. Merlin and Arthur and some knights are on a diplomatic journey (to I think Mercia) and Merlin is arrested and tortured for giving food to a homeless child and I remember that there is a big battle at the end and Merlin reveals his magic. I think he and Arthur also have sex which heals Merlin's wounds??? Thanks

Thanks to  lostgirlfoundhome!

The Kingdom of Essetir has once again fallen under new rule, and Arthur travels to visit its new king, determined to make peace. Unfortunately peace is the furthest thing from this new king’s mind. Arthur and Merlin are forced to navigate his every attempt to make Arthur a scapegoat in starting a war between Camelot and Essetir. The new king is treacherous though, and he may have just found the one weakness that will force Arthur’s hand. Note: AU Post Season 4

Chapter Thirty-Six: Prisoner Oh-Three-Eight

Seven reached over and grabbed One right before she walked over the edge of a cliff. “And that’s you dead,” she said, in an irreverent singsong that did little to mask her disappointment.

One opened her eyes and looked down. “Damn,” she muttered. She glanced quickly behind them and made sure the guards hadn’t noticed anything. They were escorting One and Seven down to the dock for cleaning duty but were lagging far behind, uninterested in the prisoners’ conversation. One was using the opportunity to practice making her way from the prison to the boat in pitch-black darkness. “Well, if the guards weren’t around I wouldn’t have to walk so fast, I could-”

“Nope,” Seven interrupted, as they started to make their way down the treacherous path to the dock. “You have ten minutes to get from the prison to the boat once we break you out. This is how fast you have to move and you know it. You’re not ready.”

“I am never going to be more ready,” One muttered. “Postponing at this stage is idiotic.”

Kylux- fake marriage. Pretty please.

-they have to go undercover on a planet pre-SKB to get intel
-Hux hasn’t been 1) planetside 2) on a mission in ages
-the best way for them to get the intel is to pretend to be others, and married so as to not to raise suspicion for why they’re traveling together
-this involves lots of heavy hand holding and public smiling and laughing and getting one bed hotels
-in public it’s fake and in private it’s back to hating each other
-but that line gets blurred
-they argue like normal in public but now as a couple, and in private they share soft tender moments
-nights are most treacherous because they have to share a bed
-Kylo first entertains the idea of “this is what it could have been like”
-Hux can’t believe what he’s feeling because he’s only seen relationships like this in the holos
-cliche running from people and so they make out in an alley way to get away
-the kiss is hot and passionate and hurried and wonderful
-nothing like they’d experienced before
-they kiss in public every chance they get
-they also spoon when they sleep
-when the mission is over and they return home it’s strange
-beds feel too large hands feel empty lips feel dry
-they meet halfway in a hallway, each heading to the others quarters
-if they can’t ever actually marry, they both agree this will have to do
-they still call each other husband in private

There were once three brothers who were traveling along a lonely winding road at twilight. In time, the brothers reached a river too treacherous to pass, but being learned in the magical arts, the three brothers simply waved their wands and made a bridge. Before they could cross, however, they found their path blocked by a hooded figure. It was Death, and he felt cheated. Cheated because travelers would normally drown in the river, but Death was cunning. He pretended to congratulate the three brothers on their magic and said that each had earned a prize for having been clever enough to evade him.

Dan Wilson (Taylor’s co-writer) performing Treacherous at Room 5 in Los Angeles on November 14, 2012.

“Taylor Swift and I wrote a song in the Spring and we recorded it a few weeks later and I added some stuff to it and it was out a few months after that.

It was really, really a very smooth and fast (relatively speaking for me anyways) process and one of the questions that several people asked online was “What is it like writing with Taylor Swift?” and I just want to say, you know when she makes that amazed expression on the TV awards show like she is just astonished that she just won? That’s how she treats a new good idea in a writing session too and it’s incredibly motivating. It actually makes you want to come up with another great idea to make her make that astonished face.

One cool thing is that if she comes up with something really cool, she makes the same face also. I admire that kind of, you know, transparency.

We wrote this song called Treacherous that I’m going to play.”
