May-24th-2016 11:55 pm - Precipitation Part 1 (Arthur/Merlin)
boreas, john william waterhouse
Title: Precipitation Part 1
Author: greymantledlady
Rating: G
Warnings: Um, Arthur being a prat? :)
Summary: ‘Merlin!’ Arthur explodes – and then stops, because Merlin has dropped to his knee on the floor, his face turned away and his arms cradled oddly to his chest; and his shoulders are shaking a little. And something in Arthur’s chest twists sharply, and he hears himself saying in quite a different voice, ‘Merlin? Merlin!’

Title: Complement (Two Halves of a Whole) Part 2
Author: greymantledlady
Rating: G
Warnings: Just hurt/comfort and fluff and kisses :)
Summary: There’s a long moment where they look at each other, and Arthur’s hand is still warm and protective on Merlin’s shoulder, and Arthur has that deep serious wonderful look again, like he’s looking right inside him. And Arthur is moving closer, and his eyes are very tender and his lips are parted–
    And the door rattles, and they leap apart.

boreas, john william waterhouse
Title: The Red Favour
Author: greymantledlady
Rating: G
Warnings: Spoilers for 3x04 'Gwaine'. This will probably be confusing to those who haven't watched the episode.
Summary: ‘You know, I’m going to be fighting them tomorrow,’ Arthur says, ‘and believe me, they will pay dearly for this.’ He touches Merlin’s sore shoulder, brief and gentle. ‘As your champion, Merlin, it’s only fitting that I should wear your token, don’t you think?’
  He looks at Merlin, softly smiling, teasing, and Merlin’s cheeks are burning like fire and he can't hold Arthur's gaze.

Title: Like Dogs and Kittens, Appendix A: or, how Arthur gave Merlin the kitten
Author: greymantledlady
Rating: G
Warnings: None, just fluffiness
Summary: Merlin really doesn't like Arthur's dog. So Arthur gives him a kitten instead.
Author's Note: Again, the cuteness made me do it. :)

Title: Complement (Two Halves of a Whole) (Part 1)
Author: greymantledlady
Rating: G
Warnings: Angst, light D/S
Summary: Merlin dashes fiercely at the tears that have started to trickle down his face, and waits. Because if Arthur wants to take him back to Camelot as a prisoner, to a cold cell and death in the grey morning – if that is what Arthur wants, Merlin will let him, because he can’t deny Arthur anything.
And Arthur takes Merlin’s shoulders in a hard, almost bruising grip, and he’s breathing hard, and Merlin’s crying messily, because he just can’t seem to stop and he’s more scared than he’s ever been in his life.

May-13th-2016 11:14 pm - Culmination (Merlin/Arthur)
boreas, john william waterhouse
Title: Culmination
Author: greymantledlady
Rating: G
Warnings: Light D/S; mostly just sweet fluff
Summary: Arthur holds him firmly, just out of reach, and soothes him with his hand on the nape of Merlin’s neck. ‘Shh,’ he says, ‘shh. Just calm down.’ He waits, a finger dipping down beneath Merlin’s neckscarf and stroking lightly, and Merlin pants and writhes a little. Arthur holds him quite still.
Author's Note: Arthur is a sweet golden puppy and Merlin is a tiny newborn kitten and I can’t be held responsible for anyone’s reactions to their extreme cuteness. :)

IN THE SHADOWS
boreas, john william waterhouse
Title: Like Dogs and Kittens
Author: greymantledlady
Rating: G
Warnings: None, just fluff and cuteness.
Summary: Gaius never knew quite how Merlin had persuaded, or wiled, the Crown Prince of Camelot to come and take the dog away for him. But there he was, striding in with Merlin tagging adoringly at his heels. Set post 1x02 'Valiant', because I was wondering what happened to the dog in the end.
Author's Note: My headcanon is that Merlin is a complete cat person and doesn't like dogs licking and pawing him - based on how he reacts when the statue-turned-real-dog jumps up at him. Idk, I just thought fastidious!Merlin was rather adorable. And Arthur coming to his rescue! I'm still not sure how Merlin managed that, but it was too cute not to write.

Did you ever feel like you needed more Merthur on your wall? Were you missing that perfect fandom thing to adorn your walls or desks?

Well, wait no more (or at least not much more!), for we have just the right thing!

With the incredibly generous help by a variety of beloved fanartists we will be able to put together not just one calender, but TWO!

Yes, two sizes, and each will contain different art work!

But wait, there is more!

Not only will it be two different Merthur themed calendars, they will also be perpetual calendars so that when the year ends you won’t have to take it down and feel sad. Instead you can just flip back to the beginning and enjoy it all over again!

You want more details? Please visit our LJ coinelot, our tumblr @coinelot, or our website.

magic, Merlin

Hi all -

It has long seemed to me that Merlin's feelings for Arthur line up fairly closely with "courtly love," which would make sense to a degree, given the era it's set in. I was reading about the nine stages of the typical courtly love story on Wikipedia today, and decided to amuse myself with creating a Merthur version of it in screencap form.


Rating: PG-13, I guess - not sure where to rate the word "consummation," which in combination with Arthur's bare legs is about as racy as it gets here :)

No other warnings needed.

Fandoms: Merlin
Pairing: Merlin/ Arthur, Gwen/Lancelot and Mithian/Elena on the side.
Warnings: Sexual themes

Summary: Merlin is a young tattoo artist with a big secret. Only his closest friends and his family knows. When the good looking and funny, but paranoid man by the name Arthur walks into his life and sets his heart on fire, he once again has to let someone in on his secret.
Author’s Notes: I wrote this awhile ago. There are a lot of things I would like to change now, but I think I'm going to let it be. Let it be a memory for when I get more experience.
I would like to thank my friend Emelie for always being willing to give me constructive crtitism and helping me make this story better. I appreaciate your help a lot.
