Arthur/clear skies gonna fall on you

"From Where I Stand You're In My Sky", Merlin, Merlin/Arthur

Title: From Where I Stand You’re In My Sky
Fandom: Merlin
Pairing: Merlin/Arthur {past Merlin/Will, slight Arthur/Superman; it almost makes sense in context}
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 17,520
Genre: Slash
Copyright: Title is from Marys Of The Sea by Tori Amos.
Summary: AU. Arthur looks away from the terrified, accusing dark eyes of the man on the newspaper, and turns his attention to his breakfast.
Author’s Notes: Erm, I should say: contains minor character death. Ok, so the Teacup ‘verse was all Heroes-esque, while this story is considerably more Watchmen-esque (yes, so I keep reading it and going to see it although it gives me nightmares, shush). Because I really do like superheroes and everything :) Although I will confess I kind of slipped into the cliché of evil!Uther, which I have so endeavoured not to do before, because otherwise this universe wouldn’t work. And now I really will stop writing Merlin-characters-as-Superheroes stories, and try something else! For one thing, these stories always get much longer and more complicated than I mean them to be.
