arthur appreciates merlin

2

Late fall 2014 I was going through a dark period and I read nearly 50k+ words of Merthur fic a day. So because someone asked (whybecauselogic) long ago, and because I appreciate these works so much for haven gotten me through that time, here’s my merthur rex. Most are novels! Happy FFWA, all you writers out there!

canon era:

stars above, stone below by destina

words: 46,843 | rating: explicit | genre: romance
summary: After the disastrous end of his betrothal to Gwen and the regret of his offer to Princess Mithian, Arthur swears off finding a wife until he’s ready to wed. When Merlin offers himself to Arthur as bedmate, Arthur suggests they hand-fast in secret for a single year of mutual pleasure without obligation. As their year together unfolds, and secrets and betrayals unravel around them, Arthur and Merlin learn there is no such thing as uncomplicated pleasure. Everything they thought they knew can change in the span of a single year.

para bellum by destina

words: 51,464  | rating: explicit | genre: romance/est relationship
summary: After Merlin goes missing, Arthur forges new alliances to repel a deadly threat to Camelot. Nothing will stop Arthur from finding Merlin, and nothing will stop Merlin from protecting Arthur – no matter the cost.

seven magpies by syllic

words: 33,448 | rating: explicit | genre: romance
summary: Arthur opened his eyes a minute later to the sight of seven magpies streaking across the top of the clearing, their shapes dark against the white clouds and the muted grey of the sky. He tried to remember what it was that seven magpies meant—he’d had a nurse who had sung the rhyme to him as a child—but couldn’t. Arthur wakes up somewhere he doesn’t recognise, but where he clearly belongs.

in want of a wife by syllic

words: 43,209 | rating: explicit | genre: romance
summary: uther intends marry off arthur, so arthur takes it as his chance at a bit of freedom before he is to be married.  (my summary not the authors)

the knights have a thousand eyes by stakeaclaim

words: 73,565 | rating: general | genre: friendship/romance
summary: In which Arthur is out of sorts. His manservant leaves a lot to be desired, Morgana is scary, Merlin’s ‘luck’ is becoming too noticeable, his knights need to learn some lessons, and they’re beginning to act very strangely. Arthur blames Merlin.

“He can see it, the wrongness of it, a kind of choking blue-red smoke circling Arthur ~ Merlin raises his hand, uncaring of the crowd and the knights and and focuses everything on Arthur and drawing that foulness away from his prince.”

This was done for fanfiction writer’s appreciation day (because hey you guys are awesome), and I thought I’d draw a little something for all the fics I keep going back to re-read. This is for Gadarene by unpossible. More to follow.

Also please do not repost, thanks:)
