Doors Unlocked and Opened (the Revelation Remix) by anon @ [ profile] camelotremix [Merlin/Arthur, WS]
Summary: In which I remix Alby_Mangroves' drawble "Bradley Has a Revelation" by reversing the camera angle when Bradley walks in on Colin changing out of his Merlin costume.

Lie With Me (The Keep it Secret Remix) by anon @ [ profile] camelotremix [Merlin/Morgana, WS]

Remix of He is Your Destiny and He is Your Doom by anon @ [ profile] camelotremix [Merlin/Arthur, WS, Warning - Character Death]


The Other Half Of My Heart by Little Steps by anon @ [ profile] camelotremix
Merlin/Arthur | 16k | Nc-17
Summary: The Albion Pact demands that the Prince of Wales must take someone magic born as his soul-bonded consort by the time he is thirty or face death.
Prince Arthur Pendragon's thirtieth birthday has come and gone and he is getting sicker by the day. With little time left to act, Arthur knows what he must do to save himself: he has to call in a boyhood promise made by Merlin Emrys, his best friend and very talented Detective Inspector Warlock...the same best friend Arthur's been in love with for half his life.
But how can Arthur ask the man he loves more than anything to give up everything he's worked so hard for? Arthur is not sure that he can...and the indecision just might kill him.
An Arthur's POV remix of The Pact by Cori Lannam. LOVED the original, and the opportunity to explore Arthur’s POV is fascinating. The original is so heavily focused on Merlin, we really get little insight into Arthur and everything he went through during the course of the fic. The remix adds fantastic depth to Arthur’s choices and give us plenty of beautiful pining and a few hot, hot scenes. A wonderful companion to the original, and I will recommend reading both fics to truly appreciate what was done here.

Without You I Was Lost (The Third Wheel Remix) by anon @ [ profile] camelotremix
Merlin/Arthur/Mordred | 4k | Nc-17
Summary: Mordred comes to stay at Avalon Hall and disturbs the natural order of things
This is a remix of nu_breed’s Regency AU Yet The Man Would At Once Run Away With Your Heart which was strictly M/A (and actually an expansion on the universe created by Hermette in her wonderful Gwaine/Elena Regency AU). I’m a huge fan of this universe and seeing another addition to it makes me insanely happy. It was really interesting to see an alternate ending to nu_breed’s fic as well as giving the opportunity to see Mordred’s POV as he figures out what is really going on with Merlin and Arthur.

Turn the Light Out (the Just Sleeping remix) by anon @ [ profile] camelotremix
Merlin/Arthur | 5k | R
Summary: In the aftermath of a sorcerer's attack, Arthur has no choice but to face the reality of his feelings for Merlin.
This is a remix of When You're Not Watching by ingberry. Like the first one, it’s a beautiful, emotional read. I don’t want to say too much, in case you haven’t read the original, but they are wonderful mirror image fics. I really enjoyed the ‘matching set’ feel of them. The events of the fic are experienced very differently by both Merlin and Arthur so the POVs change the fic drastically. Though you do not need to read the original to appreciate the remix.

Remix is doing an excellent job steering me to some wonderful stories I'd never read before as well as providing me with the remix. it's great!

So, I guess it's a positive sign of how much you like an author when you start a story without reading any of the header information, like the tags, and therefore it's not until you've already downloaded and read a little bit that you realize it contains one of your anti-kinks, such as knotting :\

I love Cori Lannam like whoa and the first few pages of The Pact seem like they're setting up a really interesting world--what do you think is the possibility that someone not into knotting would like it and the remix? Is it a huge focus of the story? (I'll add that I'm capable of being swayed to like things I don't expect if the story is awesome; it's certainly happened before.)

Your recs are awesome, as always :) Thanks for sharing them with us!

So so sorry this has taken forever for me to get back to you!

First - the remix doesn't have any of the knotting/gender swap stuff. and it can be read without the original.

As for the original, the majority of the fic contains none of that, but at the ending it is certainly there. You can always skip/skim the porn. The plot and the emotions of these fics are the beauty of it. Even if you skip the porn (which I often do with plotty fics anyway! LOL) both fics are worth a read. (though the genderswap is prat of the plot of the original so YMMV!)
