Merlin/Arthur Art by sdkay [NWS!]

I’m still working through all the fics I’d marked to rec from [ profile] merlin_holidays! /so behind
Jerusalem by Magnolia822
Merlin/Arthur [Nc-17] (28k)
Summary: Prince Arthur has spent his eighteenth year in a drunken haze of public debauchery, and after the latest round of incriminating photographs, King Uther is fed up. Though magic is outlawed and Magic Users are generally distrusted, Uther secretly hires a young sorcerer to keep Arthur in line, much to Arthur's chagrin. But what starts out as an antagonistic relationship becomes much more as Arthur, increasingly drawn to his secretive young warden, begins to suspect there is something rotten in the state of Great Britain. Modern Royal AU.
This one another great Royal AU (merlin_holidays had a great year for them!) This one was really clever with an interesting and complex backstory involving politics and magic, one of my favourite things. It’s also got the bodyguard trope which is so hot. But very quickly it’s obvious that there is so much more going on. Do read the warnings, there are bits of Merlin’s backstory that might be upsetting to some folks.

ALSOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! [ profile] paperlegends opened writer sign ups yesterday and holy shit. Anyone who thought that Merlin fandom was going to roll over and die post-finale were very very mistaken. Even with the large number of dropouts I expect (let's be honest here) 1000+ comments in 24hrs on a sign up post is basically FUCKING AWESOME. !!!!

*cheersleads everyone*

Jerusalem is such a great and fantastic story! Brilliantly written, and heartbreakingly beautiful, and oh, the world the author created there, I was blown away when I first read it!

I can't believe how many sign-ups there are for PL. It's insane (in a very, very good way).

btw, I love Jerusalem ... might just need to read it again. :)

Ohhh going to download that, it sounds awesome and I totally missed seeing it!

Also, I LOVE THE SIGN UP RESPONSE! So many amazing authors and sounding fics, I am ridiculously excited and just adore this fandom. I think Merlin still has a lot of life in it and the PL sign ups are proof.

I got my artist sign up in, now to just wait while the lovely writers work so come claims time I can benefit :D

Yay for us :) The sign-up response is mind-boggling. As a reader I'm looking forward to a feast of fic (and I haven't finished the last one yet).
