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).

[livejournal.com profile] merlin_horror is taking prompts again. You can submit a prompt here, and submit as may as you want (as long as it's a separate post). So if you're a reader looking for something creepy and Merlin to read, submit a prompt. If you're a Merlin writer in need of ideas, keep an eye out for when the prompts go up for claiming. I participated last year and it was a lot of fun.

Title: The Order of Avalon: The Emrys Quest
Rating: PG-13
Characters: Merlin, Arthur, Gwen, Morgana, Lancelot, Gwaine, Gaius
Summary: All Merlin ever wanted was to be a mechanic in peace without anyone giving him grief for the magic he was born with. But his life is flipped upside down when he is sucked into an epic adventure alongside the famous protectors of the realm, The Order of Avalon, as they set out in search of the mysterious Emrys. Magic, mechanical dragons and swashbuckling abounds.

(In case anyone's been wondering why I don't post my Merlin fic on my journal anymore, I will admit to laziness playing a part, but mostly because I don't seem to get that many readers when I do post here, so it's become a matter of "just not bothering" anymore - which please don't take as a "woe is me no will will comment" remark. It's just that because I post at both on Ff.net and AO3, that's where most of the reading happens, and posting at those sites is less of a hassle than posting at LJ. My laptop and LJ don't often get along, you see).
