Since I’ve been binge reading Merthur fics recently (yes, that’s a thing), I thought I’d share some of my favorites! As always, please send any of your recs my way if you have favorites of your own!
It’s Nice to Finally Tweet You (T | 15432 words by Pendragons Dragonlord (PseudoAuthor) ) - Soulmate au featuring soulmarks with a twist… Arthur is famous and a picture of his soulmark gets published on the internet… and you can guess what happens next.
True Love (T | 6927 words by platonic_boner) - AU where soulmates can’t lie to each other. How is Merlin supposed to hide his magic if he can’t lie to Arthur?
License to Thrill (T | 14174 words by lady_ragnell) - Merlin works at a sweet shop where Arthur is a frequent visitor… Merlin can’t figure out what he does for a living, but he can’t possibly be James Bond… right?
Something Yellow This Time (G | 3802 words by giselleslash) - Merlin owns a flower shop and Arthur seems to be needing too many apology flowers for his own good.
All is Semblative (G | 10608 words by Whitefox) - Cinderella-type story full of cuteness.
Awake (E | 50711 words by Cori Lannam (corilannam), phoenixacid) - fix-it fic where Arthur wakes once each year on the same day. This fic is hauntingly beautiful… you’ll cry lots, but it’ll be worth it.
From The Heart (G | 8068 words by supercalvin) - office-setting modern fic in which Arthur gives Merlin presents.
Dying to Return (T | 19869 words by StormDancer) - one of my favorites - Merlin comes back to Camelot in disguise, hoping to convince Arthur that magic is good on its own merits.
The Space Between (T | 3403 words by StormDancer) - Supercute fluffy fic in which Arthur is trapped in an elevator with Merlin.
Sick Leave (G | 1026 words by waldorph) - Arthur takes care of a sick Merlin.
