kriadydragon: (Dolphin)
I don't know if there's anyone on my f'list who reads or still reads MErlin fic, but if you do and if you haven't already, you need to read this one.

The Prince and the Idiot - "Idiot, idiot, idiot", are chanting children in the muddy street. Arthur stops, a bit dazzled. He brings his hand to his forehead to shield his eyes and his heart aches watching their dancing figures in the steaming light. They hop in circles around a tall, skinny boy with large ears, who spins on himself to smile at them ...

It's an AU of the show in which there's no magic and Merlin has a bit of a learning disorder. It manages to capture both the essence of the show and the legend in a way that works and works wonderfully. It also has to be the be the most gorgeous Merlin fc I have ever read. The author isn't a native english speaker and it is obvious, but they still manage to have a way with words that is absolutely beautiful. This story nearly brought me to tears more than once, which is really not an easy thing to do (I have this thing where I really hate crying over fictional stuff). So if anyone on my f'list reads Merlin, you need to read this one. It's long, but it's really worth it (but bring lots of tissues).

That's right, I found a gen Haven story. And a well written gen Haven story (though there are teeny-tiny hints of pre-het at the very end, but no more than what the show has given us).

Beneath the Sandglass by Artemis Rayne

Summary: What looked like a simple suicide takes a turn for the worst when a disturbing pattern crops up across Haven, pitting Audrey and Nathan against the Troubles once more. When it infects one of their own, can they solve the case before their time runs out?

Rating: PG-13

Characters: Audrey, Nathan, some Duke.

If anyone else has happened upon any gen Haven fic, please let me know. Most especially if they are Nathan centric.
kriadydragon: (Shep 2)

Warnings. **Dark!** majorly dark. Extremely dark. Emaciation, one scene of self-mutilation, mentions of suicide attempts. Ye have been warned.
Summary: Patient John Sheppard is dying in a psychiatric institute after a horrific accident, unable to separate himself from delusions of being a hero in the fabled city of Atlantis. One shot!
