ART: "This Moonlight Madness" (Merlin/Arthur, rated R)
Title: This Moonlight Madness
Rating: R for nudity and USTx0rs
Notes: So two days ago, I asked my ever-resourceful flist to provide me with Merlin/Arthur prompts and scenarios to kick start my art muse, which was running around in little circles wanting to draw, but with no fixed ideas. Thank you, everyone!
One prompt that caught my eye was this by anothersuperboy: good old-fashioned skinny-dipping with side-long glances
And I could totally picture it:
Arthur, in a fit of princely mischievousness, drags Merlin with him down to a woodland lake outside Camelot in the middle of the night for a spot of sekrit skinny dipping by moonlight. Maybe on a dare, maybe because he heard some stories about the mysteries of moonlight, maybe because he just wanted to escape the castle after a horrendous duty-laden week.
It all starts innocently enough, and then Arthur's struck speechless by the sight of Merlin rising above the surface, water streaming down his body, his skin glowing in the ghostly light. And Merlin looks at him with his sincere, devoted face, and Arthur's heart misses a beat, and he thinks, "What the hell am I doing here, frolicking in the water with my servant? I can't think. I don't want to."
And then Merlin's smile fades, because Arthur's handsome face is so intense and, is it really? Yes, Arthur is actually looking him up and down, and Merlin's breath catches in his throat, thinking, "What's going on? Why now? Am I imagining things? A trick of the moonlight?" And then Arthur's hand is reaching towards him, and Merlin dares not move away, dares not lean forward, either.
And then Arthur's knuckles are grazing down his arm, cold wet skin against cold wet skin, and Merlin looks up and meets Arthur's burning blue eyes. "Merlin..."
And then. Well.
:D :D :D :D :D
