The Last Dragonlord by deducemysoul [Merlin/Arthur, PG]

Give Me Just A Taste by cait_roswen
Merlin/Arthur | 5k | NC-17
Summary: Dublin, 1950s. Arthur is a boxer. Merlin writes for a crummy little journal. He likes to watch Arthur fight and take him out to bars afterwards. It might be forbidden but it’s just too fucking good.
I saw this fic recced on tumblr with a cool gif set that I totally couldn't resist. The fic warns for Internalized homophobia and in the author's own words is a 'cesspool of angst'. so, yeah. It wasn't an easy read. I'm not exactly a fan of homophobia in fics, whether internalized or showcasing societies homophobia or bullying with homophobia elements... it's just a bit too much reality mixed with my fantasy. BUT this fic is well written and while full full of angst (the hiding and fear is so painful to read) there is also so much adoration between Merlin and Arthur that it's also beautiful. And the sex is incredibly hot.

The picture is gorgeous and so is the fic. Thanks for reminding me I need to leave feedback because I read it just before we left for Valentine's dinner.
