Title: Downpour (for such as we)
Pairing: Merlin/Morgana (mentions of Arthur/Gwen)
Word count: 3,800
Summary: ‘You came,’ she says, and he has nothing with which to reply; they both know it could never have happened any other way.
A/N: Written for otempora42
's prompt 'good!Merlin/evil!Morgana'
from the drabble meme (yes, yes I do realise that was all the way back in April; I'm working on them, er, slowly? In a slightly-longer-than-drabbles kind of way? *cough*). Apparently I can no longer write a scene that is shorter than 3,000 words. This perplexes me. Hopefully this came out okay anyway, despite my verbose tendencies.( Eighteen years to the day )
- My early morning Catullus lecture was officially made of burning win. It basically turned out to be all about fellatio and gay sex in Catullus with an added helping of possible sparrow euphemisms ('passer', Latin for 'sparrow' is theorised to have also been a slang term for penis). Someone actually wrote an academic article entitled 'In Defence of Catullus' Dirty Sparrow'. This knowledge completes me.
- Classics is clearly the porn degree.
- Keeping up the twice-weekly running routine. I feel healthy; disturbing yet awesome.
- Booking flights for summer travel with xaritomene
. My summer, it will be awesome ♥
- ( Got hit by a random Merlin fic idea; Greek mythology involved )
Aaaand that concludes the happiness meme! From here on out it's all whining and depression all the time ;p
Brief PSA: I'm appallingly behind on comments and f-listy things at the moment, so if I haven't replied to you I'm not ignoring you or anything, I'm just a bit swamped right now. I think I'll probably have a chance to catch up tomorrow though (yay, fandom stuff!).
Wahey, my first fic post to this journal, and naturally it's an AU with an unusual pairing, just to be contrary.
Title: Debtors and Dead Men
Word count: 921
Warnings: Modern AU
Summary: The police will search every building and never find the ones responsible – the two ghosts slipping away into the growing light and a revolution rising with the sun.
A/N: For fortassetu
. Erm, not quite the drabble I'd intended. Or the idea I'd intended actually, but what can I say, I like to see some hot girls kicking ass and taking names.( Dawn's gunmetal glint )
So I was kind of shocked to discover that some of my fics were nominated for the MAFAs, including a couple for best PWP, and my reaction (as usual) was to think 'hey, this calls for MOAR PORN!' Looking at my competition I don't have a hope in hell of taking any victories, but I wasn't even expecting to get near the nominations list this time around so as far as I'm concerned that counts as an excellent excuse (as though I ever really need one ;p) for belated celebratory porn!
Title: Intermediary Moments
Word count: 2, 237
Spoilers: Incredibly small blink-and-you'll-miss-it reference to 1x11
Summary: In daylight Arthur gets whatever he wants by ordering, by commanding, but for this Merlin likes to hear him beg.
A/N: Shameless porn. Featuring bottom!Arthur, vague hints of character study and a couple of emotional kinks for good measure. I regret nothing.( It's nice to have Arthur on his back for a change... )
The fulfillment of the first five prompts that you lovely people left me; various pairings and ratings.
Prompted by fortassetu
: 'Morgana/Nimueh. Morgana gets lost and find herself on the island. Nimueh can be a spirit presence that can touch humans, or something else, you choose.' ( Morgana/Nimueh, PG )
Prompted by b_hallward
: 'Merlin/Morgana: mad dangerous games.'( Merlin/Morgana, PG-13 )
Prompted by xaritomene
: 'Arthur + Merlin + Ineffectual Gardening. Including the line, "Are you SURE that's a weed?"'( Merlin/Arthur preslash, G )
Prompted by allothi
: 'Merlin, the road to hell.'( Gen, PG-13 )
Prompted by woldy
: 'Merlin/Arthur/Lancelot, 'what are the rules of chivalry in bed?''( Merlin/Arthur/Lancelot, NC-17 )
I have decided in my infinite wisdom that drabbles are awesomely fun, so I'll continue to beg for more prompts - if you want to give me some just comment here
Thank you to everyone who's given me drabble prompts so far - I'll post what I've got tomorrow. If anyone else wants to prompt me here
that would be awesome!
Title: Backwards Lies the Precipice
Word count: 2,954
Warnings: Angsty PWP
Spoilers: Through all of season 1
Summary: They lay out their bedrolls as evening drags into full night, tired from days of riding and fighting and loss.
A/N: Written for kelene
and the pay it forward meme. She prompted me with: 'green, merlin, up against the wall'. Alas it turned out angstier than I'd planned; I blame the 'green' part (don't question the logic, my mind works in strange ways).( time to pay it forward )
*jumps merrily on the bandwagon* Write 10 different categories of fic, each in 10 words or less.( All Merlin-related; various pairings )
In other news I'm (slowly) working on fic for the pay it forward meme and I should hopefully have something to post for tomorrow. Also I decided to treat myself to a paid account for my birthday. This may or may not have been motivated largely by my desire for moar pretty icons ;p
Title: Whisper on the Wind
Warnings: future fic
Spoilers: Vague spoilers for 1x11, 'The Moment of Truth' and 1x08, 'The Beginning of the End'
Summary: Merlin is ever brought full circle back to Ealdor
A/N: This grew out of an entry for merlin_las
because there was no way I could fit the story I wanted to tell into 750 words. The prompt was 'Merlin in Ealdor'. A gigantic round of thanks to syllic
for their excellent beta jobs and as a sidenote, to avert any confusion now, the Avalon mentioned herein refers to the version from 1x07, 'The Gates of Avalon' rather than the Isle-of-the-Blessed, linked-to-the-old-magic' version of traditional legend. ( Read more... )
Actually this isn't any of the things I said I would write, but I found it lying around half-finished on my hard drive gathering dust and I thought 'why not - I can actually finish this tonight and feel all productive and crap', so here we are.
Title: Wounded In The Line Of Duty
Summary: Arthur returns from months away at war and Merlin is very pleased to see him, if you know what I mean - shameless PWP is utterly shameless.
A/N: Originally this was going to be for the kink meme for the bruises prompt, but then it kind of grew and mutated on me, so it ended up here instead. ( And now I bring teh pron )
CURSES, JUST SHY OF YOUR BIRTHDAY DAMMIT!
*cough* Anyway, this was written for the amazingly kickass doomcanary
since it, well was
her birthday 20 minutes ago *facepalm*. She asked for Arthur giving Merlin a present (that was not sex, ahahaha, I love that you had to specify that) so I hope this works for you!
Rating: R, I suppose
Warnings: None, just sap I guess
Summary: It's Arthur's birthday, but he's not the only one getting presents.
( much fluff and sap behind the cut )
Okay first of all RL has been whipping me in a serious way recently but finally that should be over and I will have time to stop neglecting my f-list horribly. I also have a large backlog of comments to reply to from nearly a week ago *wince* so apologies to everyone I haven't replied to - I will get there! Soon!
Secondly a gigantic thank you to anyone who nominated some of my fics over at the Merlin/Arthur fic awards
! You guys rock ♥ For anyone who doesn't already know about the awards definitely check it out - there are loads of incredibly awesome fics up for voting and it doubles as a convenient recs list :p
Thirdly (ahahaha I promised fic and then go on and on without delivering) glitterandlube
is arranging a sort of Merlin big bang type challenge thing
(to put it eloquently) which I've signed on for and which should be awesome, so I urge everyone to consider giving it a go.
Finally I've read barely any fic for the last three weeks and I'm suffering withdrawl: f-list, I appeal to you, help a fangirl out and point me in the direction of some of your recent faves? Pretty please?
Right, that's the pleading and pimping over with, so now I give you my most recent merlin_las
entry (which won! \o/)
Title: Secrets Wordless Told
Pairing: Merlin/Arthur preslash
Summary: Sometimes Merlin's more perceptive than Arthur gives him credit for
( finally the fic is here )
