Summary: Mistletoe is introduced to Camelot. Purposes are not what they appear, nor is the outcome quite as intended.
Author's Notes: What originally began as an excuse to have Gwen & Arthur smooch under the mistletoe exploded when Morgana took the story into her own hands. She turned it a bit unexpectedly plotty, giving the whole piece an entirely different spin. Many, many thanks go to mancalahour because without her patient betawork, this would have ended unsatisfactorily. Any mistakes are all mine. Written for camelot_love's holiday crackfest ♥!
It seemed Arthur was simply thinking out loud, but his next words, accompanied by a small frown, sent a chill down Gwen's spine. "Why would Morgana want mistletoe here?"
