merlinrpblog said: Merlin rubs his thumb under morgana’s eyes clearing the tears. “its only a dream.. and how far away was this vase from your bed?” Merlin asked nervously.

Morgana felt Merlin rub under her eyes to clear the tears, and she quickly took his hands, squeezing them in thanks. “The vase was on the other side of the room Merlin.” She whispered softly, her voice hitching in fright.

“People of Camelot,” the king’s voice rang out, “I give you Merlin Emrys, Court Sorcerer!”

Face burning and mouth dry, Merlin took Arthur’s outstretched hand and slid shakily off the dragon’s back. Arthur pulled him to face the crowd, pressing their shoulders together and lifting their joined hands for all to see. Merlin felt dizzy as the roar of the crowd washed over him, but Arthur’s hand in his grounded him.

Tearing his gaze away from the cheering mass of people before them, his eyes met Arthur’s in a perfect moment of joy, and all the magic in his soul was no more than a candle next to the love and pride burning in his heart.

here is yet another list of my favorite merthur modern au’s, i’ve tried to pick a few that i’ve read like a million times and that i think people should also read like a million times. [also take a look here as well]

College/Uni/High School au’s 

Of Pratty Mouth and Knobbly Knees by Sweetiejelly 
Words: 4k + Rate: Explicit Summary: Merlin was able to more or less ignore his attraction to Arthur for most of the term. But then that one night happens and nothing is ever the same again.

Best You Ever Had by Neuroticnick
Words: 36k Rate: Explicit Summary:Arthur has been with just about every girl in the sixth form. Merlin pines from afar, knowing he doesn’t have a chance. Then Merlin gets an invitation, and realises he has a chance after all. Apparently Arthur is bored and wants to try something new. Merlin knows it’s meaningless sex, but he might just be okay with that. Even if the butterflies in his stomach say otherwise.

Close Quarters by RocknVaughn 
Words: almost 4k Rate: teen and up audiences Summary: Albion University’s rather unique ”Get to Know Your Roommate” exercise has Merlin seeing red…and blue, and yellow, and green.

Stuck on You by Clea2011
Words: 2k Rate: teen and up audiences Summary: At least Arthur wasn’t actually stuck there with a stranger. Although the fact that it was Merlin was in many ways more terrible, because he’d just had to watch his best friend almost pull the skin of his hand off, trying unsuccessfully to get free. 

Charles-is-unsure-what-to-call-this au’s

Wherein a Sneaky Foot Massage Leads to Smut by Little_seahorse
Words: 5k Rate: Explicit Summary: (Basically what the title says -Charles) 

A Suitcase Full of Flowers by Loonyfish
Words: 7k Rate: teen and up audiences Summary: In the light of day, Merlin began to realise that something was completely off with this suitcase when he picked it up. It was ten times heavier that it should have been if full of his own crap, and for another thing it was what his mother would describe as charcoal grey whilst his little bag was definitely more of a sort of, well, brown colour.

In which Merlin oh so cleverly picks up the wrong suitcase and disaster ensues.

Punk!Merlin-ish au’s

Dew Point by Kianspo
Words: 58k Rate: Explicit Summary: Arthur Pendragon is as popular and successful as a sixth former can be. He hasn’t quite figured out his future yet, but it’s going to be brilliant, he’s certain. At least until some daring stranger on a cool motorcycle topples his world upside down on the first day of school. Modern magical AU.

The Punk!Merlin Au by L_awlietxoxx
Words: 3k Rate: teen and up audience Summary: (inspired by my punk!merlin drawings, and i still can’t wrap my head around the fact that my drawings inspire people to write fics :’) - Charles)


I thought i should share with you guys some of my current favorite modern!au merthur fics. This is partly because i’ve been thinking about doing so for quite some time, seeing as i’m constantly reading everything i can find. and therefore thought it would be a good idea to share my findings. I’ll be putting them under read more, and i might make a tag so that i can update it. idk if it will be useful but heck why not

I love how active the Merlin Fandom is. There are Fests. There are challenges. There are Big Bangs and Reverse Big Bangs. There are Drabble Communities and Drawble Communities. There are icon competitions. There are stills competitions. There are Parties. There are fic reccers galore. There are blogs like ‘shitmerlinsays’ and ‘merlinbloggers’ and ‘Merlinconfessions’ and ‘Ask-Merlin’. There are blogs like /yours/. Cheers everyone, for making this fandom the best.

Soo I hate to bother you but I saw your tags on that Merlin edit and I was wondering if you could recommend any good fics in which Merlin/Arthur switch bodies or have to pretend to be the other? I love the trope but I've only encountered one or two so I would be eternally grateful for any links/suggestions. Cheers!

oh you’re not bothering me at all, mate : D I don’t know if any of these are among those you’ve read but here are the ones i’ve read and loved! 


Not Everybody Has Got a Body Like You by queenklu
teen and up audiences words: 4k summary: "Can you please explain to me why I have just turned Morgana into a toad?!"

Woke Up New by Zee
rated: explicit words: 21k summary: Merlin and Arthur switch bodies; complications ensue.

I would also recommend taking a look here, these two above is also listed there but it also have few others :) 

roles reversed

Next Time, I Will Remember This And I Will Say “No” by paperclipbitch
rated: PG-13 words: 8k summary: “Arthur wants you to pretend to be him so that he doesn’t have to get married to Princess Helena?” 

I would also highly recommend taking a look here, the one above is just one of my favorite but on that link you can find lots of amazing stuff. its like my number one place to look for fanfics. Bless fy-merlinxarthur

(this one isn’t a bodyswap or roles reversed but it’s still too wonderful to keep out) 

Change in Crowns by derekstilinski
rated: mature words: 11k summary: Arthur has traveled to sign a treaty of friendship with other kingdoms, when he realizes they’ve intended to set him up to marry as well. He doesn’t want to marry for the sake of marrying, so he pulls a clumsy, crowned Merlin in with false talk that they married quietly.

Arthur’s true in saying he wants to marry for love, because he chooses Merlin for more than one reason.

This #outfit is funny because my mom used to dress me like this, well not “like” this, but kind of. I mean, she used a lot of plaid dresses that had a #peterpanneck she would just add pig tails and obviously no make up, but this is my rendition to my childhood-gone-wrong. Kinda like #merlinameetsgrunge #darks #plaid #dress #blacklipstick #ruinedchildhood #90sbitch #ootd #instafashion #backtobasics #retro #grunge #sassy #fancy #classy #blairwaldorfgoesgrunge

merlin only calls arthur ‘sweetheart’ when something it really, terribly wrong, like he’s unconcious and on the brink of death or something really bad has happened

and arthur knows this because he’s heard it a couple of times and he knows that ‘sweetheart’ means trouble so much so that he doesn’t tease her for it

merlin says it more out of habit, because that’s what her mother always called her when things seemed bad

Fanfiction Assignment

I am working on an assignment looking into tropes in fanfictions where male characters are feminised, esp. physically, in types of fanfics like genderbending, mpreg, bp fics, etc.

I see that genderbending and mpreg is quite common in a lot of fandoms (e.g. Sherlock, Merlin, Hetalia, etc.). But so far I have only come across bp fics in the Klainedom. 

So I’d like to ask you guys a few things:

a) are there any other ships/fandoms, esp major ones, that have the bp (boypussy) trope?

(Please also let me know if you have come across any resources about these types of fanfics)
