Title: Close Your Eyes
Rating: PG-13 for disturbing images
Words: 4270
Disclaimer: This is for fun, not profit, and I have no rights over this version of the legend.
Summary: The children of Camelot, during the Great Purge. Leon and Morgause are both old enough to remember this time, and I've wondered for a while if they knew each other.
Notes: This started as the first section of a 5 Things about Leon and turned out to be a story of its own. That said, I've got more I want to say about him. And now I'm going to bed, because I've been writing this all night.


You forgot there had been a dragon roosting on the roofs of Camelot once. )

Title: A New Low (2/2)
Words: 15000 total
Pairing: Arthur/ Merlin, background Gwen/Morgana
Disclaimer: This is written purely for entertainment, and I am aware that I do not own the BBC's version of these characters.
Summary: Written for this prompt at [livejournal.com profile] kinkme_merlin, which asked for diabetic!Merlin stuck in a lift with Arthur. It grew from there.
Warnings: An odd bit of swearing. And, yes, this is me turning my soapbox issues into romantic comedy, just because.

Not long after that, the teachers start appearing out of the woodwork. )

Title: A New Low (1/2)
Words: 15000
Pairing: Arthur/ Merlin, background Gwen/Morgana
Disclaimer: This is written purely for entertainment, and I am aware that I do not own the BBC's version of these characters.
Summary: Written for this prompt at [livejournal.com profile] kinkme_merlin, which asked for diabetic!Merlin stuck in a lift with Arthur. It grew from there.
Warnings: An odd bit of swearing. If I was some other author, I might imply that this was sweet enough to cause a chronic metabolic disease. I'm not that author, but this is pure romantic comedy of the fluffiest sort.

With all his heart, he wishes that the lift would move, so he can get to that chocolate cake and then everything will be okay. )

Title: Were You Up for Pendragon?
Pairing: Arthur/Merlin
Rating: PG
Words: 2840
Warning: There are probably bits of this that only make sense if you're British.
Disclaimer: I do not own this variation of the characters, and have no intention of profiting from this fic.
Summary: Sequel to Shake Your Windows and Rattle Your Walls. Election Night, 1997, and there's only one Tory that Merlin wants to keep his seat.
Notes: The Portillo Moment, for non-Brits and non-politicos. Labour under Tony Blair swept to a landslide victory in 1997, ousting the Conservatives, who had been in power since 1979. And, yeah, there should be more of this, but I've run out of weekend, and this bit stands alone.

Lib Dem and Labour posters were hanging out of fourteenth-century windows like red and yellow Christmas decorations. )

Title: Shake Your Windows and Rattle Your Walls
Pairing (one-sided Arthur/Merlin UST)
Rating: PG
Words: 3113
Warnings: Nothing but a generous helping of angst. Spoilers for series 3 characters existing, but nothing else.
Disclaimer: I do not own this variation of the characters, and have no intention of profiting from this fic.
Summary: They're all at Oxford in the 1960s, and Arthur's infatuated.
Notes: OMG, I'm going to write a happy sequel to this right now. My fluff-loving little heart can't believe I wrote it. That said, for context - homosexuality wasn't decriminalised in the UK until 1967, and the first Tory MP to voluntarily come out did so in 2002 (MPs from other parties and ex-MPs had done so before then).

I wrote these for [livejournal.com profile] kinkme_merlin a while back and finally remembered them and decided to cross-post to AO3. I actually rather like all of these, not least because they were the few little bright sparks of fic I wrote in a long, long period of writer's block.

Firelight - Arthur/Merlin pre-slash, PG - The crackle of the fire was the loudest sound in the chill of the night. Above them, the sky was clear, stars blazing in the darkness, and the frost was biting down. It was too early in the year for snow, but the earth was like steel beneath Merlin's feet, so cold he could feel it through the thin soles of his shoes. The wood he had piled up before dusk was already glittering and he was getting quite proficient at throwing it into the fire really fast, so the frost didn't have time to melt all over his bare fingers.

Solace - Arthur/Merlin pre-slash, teen - It's a long time after the battle before Arthur has the chance to sleep. There's walls to be secured in the captured fort, captives to be imprisoned and questioned, wounded men who need to see their commander still standing and the dying who need a hand on theirs as night falls. By the time things are starting to calm down, he's swaying on his feet.

Per Ardua Ad Astra - Doctor Who Crossover, Arthur/Merlin, Amy/Rory, long years of waiting, PG - Merlin knew about the others, of course, about all the sleepers: not just Arthur, but Drake snuggled down in some Sussex hammock, the nameless king under Alderley Edge, and the sleeper under Cardiff's rift (who had also been a memorable back alley shag in 1873, but that was time travel for you).

Not so much this week. Under the cut are some icons, mostly Arthur, Gwen and armour, but with a few other characters. Nothing spoilery if you've seen the episode titles. Under that is a fic from this week's Camelot Fleet Party, trying to put the Merlin characters in my home town. Much harder to do than I anticipated.

Gwen is pretty and armour is shiny )

Both from the kissing memes this weekend. Merlin is, of course, the property of the BBC. No series 2 spoilers in these, and neither is higher than a PG.

First, Summer Kisses (yes, I suck at titles), Merlin/Arthur, 1255 words.

A falcon flew through the open doors, blue-grey wings flashing between the pillars of the hall with a swift, impossible grace. )

~#~


Secondly, A Lonely Impulse of Delight, Gwen/Morgana, Spitfire AU, 1514 words. I've been reading about the female pilots of the Air Transport Auxiliary, and it seemed like the perfect wartime job for Gwen and Morgana. I kind of want to write the rest of this AU now, with Morgana being wildly jealous that Arthur actually gets to fight in his plane (which is called Excalibur, and Merlin, who is the engineer, has painted a stupid picture on the nose and is terrified every time Arthur and Lancelot go flying off. Er, yes, stopping now).

Few men appreciated the arrival of girl in a Spit on a day when they were scared to fly. )

Episode 2x02 coda, originally posted over here at Camelot Fleet Packed full of spoilers for all of the new series so far, of course. Disclaimer: this particular retelling of the legends belongs to the BBC. Rating: PG-13 fluff, about 2000 words.

Merlin has turned moping into an art form )

This fandom is such fun ^_^

Okay, so this grabbed me and would not let me think about anything else until I wrote at least some of it (seriously, I wandered round the Co-op yesterday with my mind so full of Badon that I came back with six packets of chocolate biscuits and no bread). This is definitely not the whole thing, just where it begins, but I hope it stands alone enough that you guys won't hate me if I never write any more.

And I, the last, go forth companionless,
And the days darken round me, and the years,
Among new men, strange faces, other minds.


Title: The Coming of the King
Fandom: Merlin
Rating: PG, pre-slash
Words: 2290
Disclaimer: I do not own this incarnation of the characters (though, seriously, if anyone from the BBC is reading this and wants to offer me a job, I am totally qualified for this one ~_^)

It was winter when the wolf first spoke to Arthur, six years after Merlin had left Camelot, two after Morgana had vanished in the night. )
