TitleWhere I Cannot Find You

Summary: When Hamish is diagnosed with cancer, his parents have two entirely separate ways of coping.

Review: Absolute sucker punch. Read the warnings carefully, because damn. Read only if you are prepared to have your heart forcefully ripped from your chest and tossed in a blender. If you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go read every happy fluffy fic in existence and never talk to anyone ever again.

summary:

Immortality was never something Arthur Pendragon had wanted. Merlin didn’t give him that choice. As the rest of the world reincarnates, blissfully oblivious, Arthur continues, waiting for the one man who never came back.

comment:

there are two basic questions about this one. First: Why would someone write something so sad? Second: Why do I read things, that hurt my soul? Seriously, this story was really heartbreaking. Its the other way round, Arthur living on through time and waiting for Merlin. And he’s so lonely, so broken, so empty. Its so hard to read through all those words, all those lines, that just tell you how lonely he is and how much he misses Merlin. I needed to eat lots of chocolate while reading this.

summary:

Merlin stops eating. No-one notices, and then someone does.

comment:

this is a personal theme for me, so if you have dealt with stuff like this ever (yourself or friends of yours) be aware that this can be a problem. I’m critical with such themes because of personal reasons, but I must say, this one was really good. Its not too explicit but it focuses on all the bad things about eating disorders and their consequences. I thought it very interesting that you can also read from Arthurs pov, because as sad as Merlins fate is, sometimes seeing it through the eyes of someone who cares makes it so much worse. Its the helplessness of Arthur that got to me right from the start.

summary:

Morgana is pregnant and doesn’t know who the father is, Gwen sleeps around with all the wrong men, Merlin meets Arthur and thinks he’s a tool, Arthur is getting married to the wrong person (who knew!) and it is possible Arthur is, actually, a complete tool after all. Or: Wherein Morgana Hires Merlin to Pretend to be Her Boyfriend So Arthur Doesn’t Find Out She’s a Big, Big Slutty Person.

comment:

I liked Arthur in this one very much. Besides the whole complicated situation its a really lovely story about people who are destined to be together no matter what. And pregnant Morgana is epic.

Cupboard Love

length: 32 682
rating: Teen
summary: He’s carefully balancing the sandwiches and the two biggest tupperware containers he could find that both had functioning lids when the front door opens and he almost drops everything right there in front of the stupid fountain. If that’s Derek Hale, he’s definitely not a mountain man.

The Order of Avalon: The Emrys Quest

by kriadydragon

Summary

All Merlin ever wanted was to be a mechanic in peace without anyone giving him grief for the magic he was born with. But his life is flipped upside down when he is sucked into an epic adventure alongside the famous protectors of the realm, The Order of Avalon, as they set out in search of the mysterious Emrys. Magic, mechanical dragons and swashbuckling abounds.

Reaction

This was such a cool verse. It didn’t feel like a fic at all, more like a whole new story with the same characters. Really entertaining.
