The Shoemaker by fleete Freya/Gwen, Merlin/Arthur [NC-17, warnings] (23k)
Summary: Historical magical AU. In turn-of-the-century Glastonbury, Freya Lake is the headmistress of an orphanage for magical children. And despite all the seers’ dire warnings, Freya is happy; her infatuation with the shoemaker’s apprentice—who may or may not be a girl underneath his shirt and trousers—is slowly coming to a head. But then a woman claiming to be Morgan Le Fay shows up on the orphanage steps, demanding to see Emrys, and Freya is forced to rearrange her priorities.
I have so much to say about this fic that I don’t even know where to start. First the pairing. Not a pairing many of us are screaming for or really ever considered. Ever. In fact it’s currently the only fic on AO3 with that pairing and I’m sure none of you are surprised about that. So I won’t say: look at that pairing!!! GO READ. There is an element of Merlin/Arthur (which is beautiful) but it’s not the focus of the story so I won’t pretend it is. Instead I will say that this author is an incredible storyteller, that the writing is gorgeous and the premise of this is so original and fascinating that watching the story unfold was breathtaking. On the topic of the warnings, while ‘freya and gwen getting together’ is NOT the focus of the story, their friendship and love add an incredible depth to this fic. Gwen is female who identifies as male (which is never at all a ‘gotcha’ for Freya, who knows there is something ~different about the shoemaker, and loves him anyway). That aspect of the story is really wonderfully done and the sex is sizzling hot. Despite the fact that I was reading for the tale and not that pairing, I absolutely fell in love with those two. Basically: OMG GO READ. YOU WONT REGRET IT.
marguerite_26: (Merlin hols)
I've been getting all excited for Saturday's Merlin because MITHIAN! I loved her. I'm happy to see her back. I totally ship her with Merlin. or Arthur. or both together... Mmmmm.

And I was reminded of a Merlin/Mithian I read a while back and I figured it would be a good time to rec it.

A Royal Wedding by mollrach13 [NC-17] (37k)
Merlin/Mithian. Arthur & Merlin friendship, background Arthur/Gwen.
Summary: Canon-era. When Mithian decides to stay on in Camelot after King Arthur's wedding she never exepects the string of events that come after, leading her to her love and her place in this web called 'Destiny'.
This is a charming romance that takes place right after Arthur and Gwen's wedding with Mithian staying on in the castle for a bit and tumbling into an unexpected romance. This fic does have a few Arthur/Gwen moments, as well as Merlin being servants to both A/G (though if that makes you uncomfortable, those bits are very short and skimable). Otherwise it's a sweet tale of Mithian slowly learning to appreciate Merlin and beyond that. But I don't want to give too much away. Very satisfying read.

Mordred's Mysterious Gazes by [livejournal.com profile] leochi [G] Mordred

FIC:

The Love Between Us by [livejournal.com profile] planejane Merlin/Mordred [NC-17] (1.8k)
Summary: Mordred’s words echo in Merlin’s head, depriving him of sleep.
A short continuation from 5.2 with a confrontation between Merlin and Mordred that ends with a bit of hot, angry, very non-romantic sex.


As an aside: I was struck by how much Merlin’s refusal to rust Mordred in this fic reminded me of his refusal to be honest with Morgana in S2. It almost felt like Merlin pushing Mordred away is what sets Mordred on the path to betraying Arthur. I’m curious if that is what will happen. In which case it’s actually Merlin who is Arthur’s bane. /random thoughts

All Bets Are Off by [livejournal.com profile] magnolia822 Merlin/Arthur, various other pairings [NC-17] (22k)
Merlin has been in a series of failed relationships since uni, and Arthur has been a slag for just as long. After Merlin's most recent breakup, Arthur bets he can stay in a relationship longer than Merlin can stay single. Neither of them suspects their little bet will backfire so spectacularly—or open up so many possibilities.
This was a WIP that was completed this week and it’s charming. It’s got some great humour and lovely banter between Merlin and Arthur. Also plenty of ust and misunderstanding and an astounding amount of sex (including one night stands between Merlin/Gwaine, Merlin/Percival). It was a delicious read.



I am so excited about tonight’s ep. The preview has me all squirmy and staring at the clock. About 12hrs until I can watch it. TIME GO FASTER.

So many hot fics posted recently! :D \o/

Lots of porn for you... (except for the first art... but I didn't want to wait another day to post the rec for it)

[ART]
The Barren Halls by anon @ [livejournal.com profile] merlin_games Arthur/Merlin [WS] [Team Canon]
This art blew my mind. I love the originality of it, Merlin with branches for wings? Love. It. and it’s strikingly beautiful.


Break and Enter by [livejournal.com profile] bamphigoury Merlin/Arthur [NWS!]
Contains: Arthur/Merlin, Roleplay, Submission, Dom!Merlin, Bondage(handcuffs), Deep throating, possible asphyxiation?, and uniform!!!
Summary: Arthur and Merlin roleplaying cops and robbers (well, mountie and robber)
Please read ‘contains’ list. THEN CLICK. jakdfjlfgdjklgfdjgldfjl


[FIC]

Tell me How by [livejournal.com profile] fr333bird Arthur/Merlin [NC-17] (8k)
Summary: Merlin and Arthur are roommates at a posh boarding school. That's all you need to know.
A hot modern AU that focuses on the boys first steps of sexual discovery together. With one ficlet focused on each ‘first time’, the tentative exploration of their sexuality hits all the right buttons for me.


Skin Deep by [livejournal.com profile] planejane Arthur/Merlin [NC-17] (3k)
Summary: From a kink meme prompt: Arthur helps Merlin put lotion on his back every day because Merlin has super-dry skin.
Theauthor captured Merlin’s vulnerability so well. He is suffering from something awkward and embarrassing, and his life revolves around keeping it all under control. and keeping it secret. Only Arthur makes him forget, makes him take risks. And in the end, the fic is about Arthur’s understanding and Merlin’s willingness to let him help. Just lovely.


So Are You to Me by anon @ [livejournal.com profile] merlin_games Arthur/Merlin [R] [Team Modern AU] (9k)
Summary: American high school AU, the gang take a weekend trip up to Arthur’s lake house after graduation and amidst a weekend of booze and general debauchery, Arthur is forced to confront his feelings about his best friend.
Great UST in this fic. I loved Arthur's confusion. It rang very true for a teenager being overwhelmed with the realisation that he’s feeling things he didn’t expect, that his body is reacting in ways he doesn’t understand. The author did a great job showing us just how overwhelmed he was without dragging out the denial so far that there was no going back. And I loved the setting of all the boys having a 'last weekend together' before the all head off to college. It really added to the urgency for Arthur figuring things out.


In-Flight Entertainment by [livejournal.com profile] magnolia822 Arthur/Merlin, Gwaine [NC-17] (3k)
Inspiring Kink: Role play
Summary: On a transatlantic flight, Gwaine has the good fortune to be seated next to two good-looking blokes. They're perfect strangers. Or are they?
Ahahaha... this is a fun, fun fic. And a clever idea.


The Glade of Delights by [livejournal.com profile] emptysock Gwen/Tentacles, mild Gwen/Morgana [NC-17] (2k words)
Warning/Contents: Tentacle bestiality, (highlight other warnings at main post)
Summary: The woods around Camelot, despite King Uther's best efforts, are filled with magical creatures of all kinds, some kinder than others. Written for [livejournal.com profile] oteap's Pink Trouble [NWS] for [livejournal.com profile] merlin_ficart
TENTACLE LOVERS... THIS FIC!!! Hot damn. Seriously.


The Call of Avalon (take me home) by [livejournal.com profile] emptysock Merlin/Arthur [NC-17] (2k)
Warning/Contents: bestiality, knotting, magic healing tongue (so much hotter than it sounds).
Summary: Post-mortem, after Camlann. Take me back to the start.
This is a beautiful story. Gorgeous writing, and so epic in it’s own way... and wonderfully romantic. For as much as this is a very kinky fic (sofuckinghot) i love the confusion of both characters in this, both lost, looking for something and finding each other (at last).

Size Isn't Everything (Except When It Is) by [livejournal.com profile] leashy_bebes Gwaine/Percival [Nc-17] (6k)
Content Notes: Set just post-S3. Size kink, really ridiculous levels of stamina, snowballing, spanking, orgasm denial, felching, blink-and-you'll-miss-it breathplay, talk of but no actual: gangbang, bondage. Did I mention the really ridiculous stamina?
Summary: Gwaine is bored and likes a challenge. Percival is definitely a challenge. (Pft, ignore this. Shameless PWP.)
Not a pairing I've ever read before... or really even thought of? But size kink! so I was all over this. and it delivered on so many levels... i can't even. This Percival is ... [keyboard smash] ... I want to take him home and handcuff him to my bed. This fic is hot like burning no matter who you ship or what fandom you are in.

Old shoes, new perspectives by anon @ [livejournal.com profile] merlin_games Gen: Arthur and Merlin [Team Reincarnation] [pg-13] (2k)
Summary: It turns out to be a quiet moment amidst ruins which makes history come true.
Fascinating piece. I love the backstory told as Merlin stands with a boy-Arthur among the ‘old’ ruins of modern society and we see both a glimpse of the past, and the hint of the future they will make together.



Hopes Profoundby anon @ [livejournal.com profile] merlin_games Arthur/Merlin [Team Historical] [pg] (3k)
Summary: On the eve of World War 1, two men from different walks of life meet under unusual circumstances.
This fic has a fun adventure and adrenaline high in the beginning and yet twists by the end to be a poignant ‘moment in time on the eve of war’ fic. Lovely read.



When Morning Comes by [livejournal.com profile] starlingthefool Merlin/Arthur [R] (9k)
Summary: If life were fair, anyone who managed to survive the apocalypse would be given a fuzzy blanket, some tea, and a nice bed to hide under and weep. Life is not fair, obviously, and there's no actual end to the end of the world. Instead, there's grief and pain and mud and death, there are minor miracles, and there's the love that gets you out of bed in the morning, despite everything. Life goes on.
This was written for the Happy Ending Fest, and yet I had to be told 5 times that I need to read it because I was afraid of the angst. And yup, I basically cried the whole way through it. /wuss. But DAMN, it was really well done. and YES Happy Ending (as required). Definitely a great read for when you are in the mood for a clever apocalyptic/alien invasion/dystopian plot that is full of heartache and sprinkled liberally with romance, hope and laughter.

Turning Page by [livejournal.com profile] mightypretty Arthur/Merlin [NC-17] (25k)
Summary: When Merlin, best loved singer/songwriter in the UK, tragically loses his parents in a car accident his life is turned upside down. Depressed and alone he's ready to give up and leave it all behind, but then he hears a voice.
This fic has warnings for: Mentions of depression, self-harm and suicide. The fic begins with Merlin already deep in depression over the death of his parents. I find grief hard to read, and this was no exception. There was no quick fix for Merlin’s issues, but healing does come with the help of Arthur – who has his own painful past to deal with. It was a beautiful story, heartbreaking but a good journey through it all and it left me happy and not wrung out. This fic was inspired by the beautiful graphic by [livejournal.com profile] sallyna_smile

Art Prompt Title: # 2001 by [livejournal.com profile] mangacat201

[ART]
Masquerade Ball anon @ [livejournal.com profile] merlin_games [Team Canon] Arthur/Merlin [WS]
Summary: Merlin needs something to wear to a masquerade ball. Gaius finds him a costume that Balinor once wore to a ball when he was still a member of Uther's Court.

Memorable Mustang by anon @ [livejournal.com profile] merlin_games [Team Modern AU] Gwaine/Merlin [WS]
Summary: A comic page without words - Merlin and Gwaine's first date starts off poorly, but in the end they seem don't care.


[FIC]
Knowing by anon @ [livejournal.com profile] merlin_games [Team Modern AU] Arthur/Merlin [Nc-17] (3.7k)
Summary: Merlin's had a funny feeling for weeks now. He's about to find out why.
I really enjoyed this little adventure with Merlin the thief, and his role slowly being revealed together with the mystery of Merlin’s magic acting up. Also a nice splash of porn (voyeurism and loo sex! Two of my favourite things) to make the whole thing delish.


The Seventh by anon @ [livejournal.com profile] merlin_games [Team Historical] Percival/Merlin [PG] (4.5k)
Summary: Nobody ever knew how Percival felt about Merlin. But he made sure to show the sheriff in whatever ways he could.
A nice period piece, set in the old west. The fic is a character study of both Merlin and Percival far more than a fic that follows a plot. The author did a great job drawing both, but Percival especially so not only did he feel very real (more real than we get from canon, even) but also using the time period and setting as a way to understand the characters and the complexity of their feelings.


The Spirit of Familiarity by anon @ [livejournal.com profile] merlin_games [Team Reincarnation] Arthur/Merlin [G] (5.8k)
Summary: In each of his incarnations Merlin has magic but untamed magic requires guidance and in Merlin's case that comes in the form of a more than Familiar Spirit.
Reincarnation fics never fail to break my heart. They are full of hope, naturally because there is always a second chance, yet it’s still hard ‘living through’ the ache of lives gone by. That said, I really liked this interesting look at Merlin and Arthur finding their way to each other time and again in so many different situations, both the form that they took and they reason for their lives.

[ART]
Arthur + Tentacles [livejournal.com profile] oteap NSFW (Warning: non-con)
Summary: For this Kink Me! Merlin prompt: Arthur/Other, where "other" is a tentacle monster.
ETA: because of this artist's style Arthur could be interpreted as very young, though YMMV. Just be aware of it before you click.

[FIC]
Ruffled by [livejournal.com profile] leashy_bebes Merlin/Uther [R] (3.7k)
Summary: Uther has a panty fetish. Merlin just happens to wear female underwear.
This fic comes with notes about cross-dressing, age difference and dub-con. The dub con is pretty light, and mostly because of alcohol induced decision making so ymmv. This was written awhile ago but I was distracted at the time and bookmarked and finally got the chance to read and it did not disappoint. I love the kink, love the pairing and Uther was exactly how I like him, and Merlin's (drunken/nervous/a little overwhelmed) POV was brilliant.


At the Edge of the Woods by [livejournal.com profile] aprileaf Merlin/Arthur [NC-17] (2.5k)
Summary: Merlin is fascinated by the man with the house at the edge of the woods.
Contains: knotting, orgasm control, elements of D/s, behind held down
YUM! More knotting. Lots of knotting fics popping up lately, and they each bring something a little different to the table. I loved the feel of this one, it was dreamy and soft and yet when it go to the porn it was scorchingly detailed. The intensity of it was brain melting.


Those Fairy Tales They Tell Us by [livejournal.com profile] giselleslash Merlin/Arthur [G] (3.1k)
Warnings: Character death
Summary: All fairy tales begin with 'Once upon a time...'
This a beautiful, lyrical fairytale. It has an amazing dreamy quality to it, that made me smile and laugh even when I had tears rolling down my face. It left me all achey-happy. Wonderful read.

Dance Down to Nothing by [livejournal.com profile] arithilim Merlin/Arthur [PG]


[FIC]
The Blessing by [livejournal.com profile] corilannam Merlin/unicorn, implied Merlin/Arthur [NC-17] (4k)
Summary: Set immediately after episode 1.11. The unicorn has come back to life, but it still wants something from Merlin.
This was written for Kinkspiration Round 1, so warning: bestiality (human/unicorn sexual activity). To which I say: \o/ BRING IT ON. And this delivers. Very naughty and wrong and so delicious.


Stranded by [livejournal.com profile] fluffssnowflake Arthur/Merlin [R] (5.6k)
Summary: When Merlin and Arthur find themselves in a tight spot, they get help from an unexpected source.
Well... i pretty much love everything about this fic and would have loved to read a 100k of it, but I think the author did an excellent job of making it work perfectly in 5k (I just need to keep re-reading it, is all). The premise is that an older Arthur from the future comes back to help out when he's needed, and not only does he eradicate the evil beasties, but he gives younger!Merlin hope and a glimpse of the future that is more precious that anything Excalibur can do.


The Very Important Quest by [livejournal.com profile] angstslashhope Arthur/Merlin [NC-17] (25k)
Summary: On a Very Important Quest, Arthur and Merlin share clothes, beds, bathwater and secrets.
First: there is a warning for gore here – which is due to animals eating other animals. That bit is easily skimable. I really loved the banter in this fic, the dynamic between Merlin and Arthur, the way they look after each other. Lovely quest fic.


Until Morning Light by [livejournal.com profile] myashke Arthur/Merlin [NC-17] (9k)
Summary: The citadel is coldest during Midwinter vigil, but warmth comes in many forms on that magical night.
This is a gentle, warm fic that made me smile the whole way through. I adore the atmosphere of the Midwinter vigil and ritual of it all, as well as the quiet friendship between both Merlin and Arthur.


On Pins and Needles (In the Company of Wolves) by [livejournal.com profile] coffeemugged Uther/Merlin [NC-17] (17k)
Summary: Sometimes, the fairy tale heroine isn't just a cutout victim waiting for her saviour, but the agent of her own fate. Merlin thinks so, anyway, as he tries his best to woo a beast of his own - his English Lit teacher - Mr Pendragon.
This fic comes with warnings for: D/s, student-teacher relationship, age disparity (Merlin is 16), BDSM.... which basically reads like all my favourite kinks. What I liked most about this fic was Merlin’s self-awareness. He knows he’s a sub, and knows he responds to Uther’s Dom characteristics and he loves to push the Dom in Uther to the forefront, even if he’s a bit clumsy at it. IDEK... but that just hits all my buttons.


Same River Twice by [livejournal.com profile] kianspo Arthur/Merlin [PG-13] (22k)
Summary: Modern royal AU. When Arthur, the Prince of Wales, was seventeen, he had made a mistake that is still haunting him. Eight years later, can he finally make it right?
This fic? HEARTS IN MY EYES the whole time. A fantastic, quick read that immediately became one of my favourite Royal AUs. A sweet, romantic, fun fic to read on a winter’s afternoon.

marguerite_26: (Kinky)
Losing It All by [livejournal.com profile] planejane Merlin/Morgana [Nc-17, warnings] (2.6k)
Summary: Morgana uses Merlin, in more ways than one.
This fic contains: Bondage, dub-con, watersports. humiliation, SPOILERS FOR 4:06.... and so much hotness. This is a missing scene from 4.06, and is absolutely filthy and perfect - with Morgana getting off on the power trip of Merlin at her mercy and Merlin helpless and defiant throughout it all. All my D/s kinks, let me show them to you.

Rescue Me by [livejournal.com profile] eurydice72 Elena/Gwaine [PG] (3.2k)
Summary: Though Gwaine might leap to rescue a lady in distress, sometimes the lady prefers to do the rescuing herself.
Absolutely delightful little fic with one of my favourite rare pairs. Spot on characterization of both Gwaine and Elena and a realistic first meeting.

An Imbalance of the Humours by [livejournal.com profile] agenttrojie Arthur/Gwaine/Merlin [NC-17] (2.5k)
Summary: Gwaine and Arthur have to refrain from … wasting their energy … in view of the upcoming melee tournament. Merlin is less than impressed, but it's all right, because Gwaine and Arthur have plans.
Delicious threesome awesomeness. Also a lovely, healthy, poly relationship fic for those of you who don't like insecurity and jealousy in your OT3.

Then Eldest woke me up at 3am because his covers fell off his bed and he need me to tuck him back in. /o\
Could I get back to sleep after? Nooooooooooo. /o\
But I have recs! With lots of Gwaine! \o/

Random emoticons reflection... someone once said that this ---> \o/ looks like a head between a pair of spread legs. Can’t. Unsee. Which really makes /o\ and \o/ just different positions of happy-making. Heh. Very philosophical. Or something.

Right... onto recs, my apologies for more than the usual number of typos. I’m half asleep.

we get around by [livejournal.com profile] novemberlite [NC-17] (3.5k) Merlin/Arthur, Merlin/Knights
Summary: the round table is useful for all sorts of things.
This is some beautifully written porn. UNF! Also an excellent example of how bottom =/= submissive. Merlin is gloriously bad-ass in his cock-slutty, give me everything I can take it fucking of all the knights. And UNF! To Arthur’s POV as he watches and waits his turn. Fucking yeah.

Proprietary by [livejournal.com profile] wldcatsprstr_14 [NC-17] (~2k) Merlin/Arthur, Gwaine
Summary: Arthur likes to rub off on Merlin's cheekbones.
Facials, jealous!Arthur, flirty Gwaine...yup. win-win-win.


Float On by [livejournal.com profile] faeryqueen07 [NC-17] (~6k) Merlin/Arthur/Gwaine
Summary: It’s fast, and Arthur has been cleverly boxed in, so there is no escaping when Gwaine’s arms come up to wrap around him. Arthur goes stiff in the embrace, unsure of what to do. Is there some sort of hugging etiquette? Where do his hands go? On Gwaine’s shoulders? His arms? He stays still, spine ramrod straight, arms unbending at his sides, and waits for it to be over.
A lot of you likely read this while it was a WIP in Hermette’s journal. I waited to devour this during the re-post. So delish. A lovely threesome fic, with a Merlin sandwich and hot hot fingering and sweet hugs and cuddles somehow wrapping the whole thing together. Yum.

I’ll be off line all day, if you happen to be looking for me. I'll be around tomorrow though. :)

In the meantime...
Of Greatness by anon @ KMM Arthur/Knights, Arthur/Merlin [R] (2k)
Summary: Everything Arthur knows about sex and love he learned from his knights
Brilliant and erotic. While the premise sounds like it might be ‘gang-bang porn’ this fic is so much more than that. It is a coming of age story, subtle and beautifully written.


Things You Shouldn't Do With Your Best Friend's Older Sister by [livejournal.com profile] gnimaerd Merlin/Morgana [NC-17] (~20k)
Summary: Modern AU, Merlin certainly didn't mean to lose his virginity to his best friend's older sister. It just kind of... happens.
I don’t read a lot of het in this fandom but this was a wonderful read. Morgana was S1 Morgana, charming, seductive and vulnerable. Merlin is young and inexperienced – a bit overwhelmed by this strange (slightly cold) beautiful older women who starts this casual affair of nothing but sex. A sexy, fun and romantic story.

First - Happy Birthday [livejournal.com profile] themostepotente. Last year on your birthday, I wrote my very first Merlin fic (clearly you are to blame for everything!) Hope you have a fabulous day.

Second - Merlin Recs – various pairings
Fit to be tied by [livejournal.com profile] angstslashhope [NC-17] (5k) Merlin/Gwaine
Prompt/Summary: "Gwaine/Merlin, finding other uses for Merlin's scarf."
This fic is so fabulously hot. I love the bit of bondage and gagging and teasing. Loved Gwaine being at Merlin’s mercy but suddenly this PWP turned into a bit more and the hotness factor just skyrocketed. Fantasticly hot fic.

Like Fire from Smoke by [livejournal.com profile] myashke [NC-17] (9k) Arthur/Merlin/Gwaine
Summary: Gwaine gives Merlin what he truly wants.
This fic is a sequel to the amazingly hot Like Smoke From Fire, in which Merlin has his first time with Gwaine on Arthur’s bed. UNF!!! This is their second time and Arthur wants more than just to offer his bed. Brain meltingly hot, with a nervous and inexperienced Merlin, nervous and inexperienced Arthur, and a guiding them both into something they really want Gwaine. Now, dear author – please write us a third to this hot like burning series.

Layer Cake By [livejournal.com profile] cyus [PG] (3k) Arthur/Percival, Merlin
Summary: Life's about cake and choices even when destiny peek-a-boos at a school fair.
Not a pairing I typically crave, but I was curious where the author was going with this, so I checked it out. It was absolutely fascinating. A gorgeous depiction of Arthur’s happy life, beautiful showing and not telling, and I love this take on reincarnation and how it doesn’t always work out how we expect and well that can be okay too.

Hay-tussled by [livejournal.com profile] cyus [PG-13] (1k) Uther/Gaius
Summary: This love was forever, king or not, Gaius would always stand by Uther's side.
Before you run away! This begins with a young Uther and Gaius (pre-teens), and tells the story of their friendship and Gaius’s devotion, Uther’s need for his support and then on through the years of Uther’s reign and how it all falls apart. Beautifully told back story.

Warnings: group-sex, bad language, violence, accidental injury.
Summary: Seven times Merlin (arguably) dated a football player…
Look at that pairing list! LOL. My first thought was: this must be crack, or maybe just a crazy PWP that took 15k to write because of so many players. But it’s not, on either count. It’s a lovely, sexy fic that tells of Merlin’s complicated journey of relationship failures throughout high school. It was oddly... realistic. sorta. People don’t just ‘land’ their true love. They have a lot of *cough* bumps along the road to love. And poor Merlin’s road isn’t straight. [see what I did there?] It was neither too angsty nor too ridiculous, but a lovely mix of funny and pathos and porn. Excellent read.


No Sense of Responsibility by [livejournal.com profile] hermette [R] (4k) Arthur/Merlin
Summary: In which making out in the library has unfortunate circumstances, until it doesn’t anymore.
This was tons of fun. It had a simple premise: Arthur and Merlin get caught snogging and need to look after a doll to learn some responsibility. But what stood out to me in this fic was Arthur’s POV. The author made me feel how desperately he wanted Merlin, how they couldn’t keep their hands off each other. The UST was sizzling and somehow romantic.



Also! Thanks to everyone who participated in yesterday's Merlin/Gwaine/Arthur VERY IMPORTANT POLL . I’ll be replying to your comments ASAP. So many pervy thinky thoughts! \o/ OT3 4eva!

Various pairings, each listed beside the recs.


[VID]
The Sorcerer & The King by [livejournal.com profile] analyst_1 Merlin/Arthur
Music: I saw you die - Apollo Drive
Summary: I saw you die, in front of my eyes. I watched you fall without a choice. To hear you breathe, what I wouldn't give to have you here with me. ~ dealing with the opening part of [livejournal.com profile] misswinterhill 's The Sorcerer and The King.
I adored this fic and this vid is everything it promises, and complete re-living of those moments that ripped my heart out. Fantastic stuff.


lots more recs, but I need to cut... )

[Disclaimer: This is a bit of a WIP at the moment. I don’t read a lot of rare pairs and this is a really sparse list so I’ve tried to point readers to comms and/or rec lists where you can get more of what you like. If you’d like to see a comm or rec list mentioned just leave me a comment.]

This is a rec list of fanworks of rare-pairings. Which means stuff that is not Merlin/Arthur or Bradley/Colin. As well all fics with Gwaine as a main character appear in the All About Gwaine rec list.

It is het, slash, femmeslash friendly, though I read mostly slash so those pairings will be the most predominant.

I’ll be updating this regularly based on my Rare Pair Recs tag. The date preceding each rec is the date it was added to this rec list. The bolded date denotes newly added recs. Last updated Feb 18, 2011.

Summary: In the two years and five months Merlin has known him, Arthur has been enchanted to love people he ordinarily wouldn’t nine times. Merlin simply never expects Arthur to be enchanted to love him.
This is an adorable fic! A nice, clever plot with enchanted!Arthur being hilarious and exasperated!Merlin being exasperated. A very fun read.

Swearing Fealty by [livejournal.com profile] leashy_bebes [NC-17] (1.6k) Arthur/Percival
Summary: PWP
The moment I saw Arthur’s reaction to Percival when they met (and you know what I mean, right? When he looked up at that monster of a man and came in his pants?) I’ve been waiting to read this fic. Because YES YES YES, Arthur wants this so bad. Percival just wants to make Arthur happy. UNF!
