Frozen Waters: Chapter 3Chapter 3
Wobbling precariously on the damaged and fragile surface of the ice Elyan peered down into the dark depths, his eyes quickly landing on Merlin’s slowly sinking form.
Wasting no more time the knight, stood once again taking a few deep and steady breaths as he did so to steel himself against the biting cold he was about to be subject to, reminding himself that he was doing this for Merlin, and that the cold he was to experience was nothing compared to what Merlin certainly suffered.
Then without farther delay Elyan closed his eyes and dived.
Back on the shore rest of the knights, stood frozen, not from the cold no but rather from the distressing events that they had just played witness too. Arthur clenched his fists hard enough that he could feel his nails digging into his palms even though the thick leather of his winter gloves, as his mouth drew down into a frown. Besides him Percival remained even silent but
"Damn it." Gwaine cursed, quietly, his eyes locked on the
Frozen Waters Chapter 2Chapter 2
As Merlin's foot sunk into the ice he fell forwards his body slamming into the edge of the broken ice, his arms slapping the surface, as he gasped as the shock of the ice cold water surrounded him, soaking into the fabric of his clothes. Merlin took large uneven breaths as he tried to find a purchase on the seemingly impossibly smooth surface of ice, whilst he kicked his quickly numbing legs in and attempt to keep afloat.
Taking deep breath to try and calm down and to try and adjust to the freezing temperature of the water surrounding him, though Merlin realised that, that may not be his main problem as, the numbness that had started in just his feet had begun to spread rapidly up his legs towards his torso which so slowly becoming more and more submerged as the seconds went by.

Blue Eyes in FlamesWhen the prince sees the flower bloom from the palm of her hand, he orders her arrest.
She is only seven years old.
He takes the flower from her and keeps it, even though he knows he shouldn't. He puts it a vase, or, rather, his servant does that for him. The flower doesn't ever die, even years later.
It's dawn of a December morning, and he's cold. But still, he stands next to his father dutifully and looks at the little girl with blue eyes that are now black from seven nights sleeping on a cold, dungeon floor behind bars. They cut off her dark brown hair during that time. She's tied to the pyre, and there are seven guards around her, holding sharper swords than normal, not that she could get away. There's one man dressed in black holding an unlit torch, with a mask over his face to prevent his death. His father raises his arm, and the torch is lit.
