Time To Rec It Tuesday - 6/13/2017
So, here’s this week’s list. I compiled it over the past few weeks, putting in the ones that touched a place in my heart, and all of them are completed. Admittedly it is severely lacking in Dramione again, mainly because my head has been so buried in Merthur that I simply haven’t had time for anything else. I plan to remedy that soon. Anyways, hope someone enjoys!
1. The Knights Have a Thousand Eyes by stakeaclaim
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. COMPLETE

9. Destiny Deferred by scatterglory
And Merlin can’t deal with this yet, knows he should summon up the ability to rage at Arthur, to tell him that he should have said that all those years ago, that it’s Arthur’s fault that they’re broken because he turned out just like his father …
But he can’t, because it’s not, because he didn’t. Because Merlin made a choice, and Arthur made a choice, and they’ve both carried the consequences with them for far too long.
