Tis the season for holiday fanworks and holiday songs!

merlincarols is a new Creative Works Fest for the BBC Merlin fandom- open to all sorts of fanworks, pairings, and characters! The one requirement for each fanwork is that it’s inspired by a holiday song. The song can be music in a fan video or plot inspiration for a fanfiction, whatever inspires you. Signups run from 11/26/16 - 12/10/16. Like most fests, the goal is to create a sense of community by creating prompt based works for a short amount of time.

Want to sign up? Hop on over to the community and lay claim to your song of choice here. Make sure to read the rules! If you have any questions, please reach out to the mods (pendragoff and momotastic27 on tumblr, who's momotastic on LJ) at merlincarolsmods@gmail.com and we’ll be happy to help!

Title: You're Only in Trouble if You Get Caught
Author: thalia :D (thalialunacy)
Summary: Wherein Arthur is a princess with ambition and Merlin is a dangly sorcerer who can’t help but nick things. Add in a marriage decree, an OAP named Gaius, a really complicated spell, and stir.

Genre: Canon-era fairytale AU, where everyone's pretty happy and gayness & magic are both on a kind of non-death-y don't-ask-don’t-tell level.
Warnings: Temporary gender-swapping for love. And oh my god anachronisms. (Differentiating between the period during which the Arthurian legend was written and the period about which it was written: The Forever Struggle.)
Prompt: Very loosely based on Disney's Aladdin, from which came the title.
Rating: R for sexual situations
Length: >15k

( Arthur shakes his head, almost indulgently. "You must admit you're as bad as I am, Merlin."
Merlin nearly drops his armful of sweaty cloth. "I'm—what?"
"I was speaking in English, was I not?"
"Yes, and so did you just admit—in English—that you are insufferable?"
"Steady on, don't hurt yourself. Or drop my washing." )

Title: Complement (Two Halves of a Whole) (Part 3)
Author: greymantledlady
Rating: PG
Warnings: None
Summary: Merlin stands in the corner and fixes his eyes on Arthur’s face, because he thinks he might scream if he looks anywhere else. So he just looks, and looks, and looks at Arthur, at Arthur’s strong fierce jawline and proud beautiful nose and kind mouth, while Uther’s voice fills up and reverberates around the inside of his head. And every so often Arthur glances at Merlin, and it’s like a lifeline between them.

The Merthur Art Calendars

Both calendars contain exclusive, unpublished fanart by a whole bunch of incredibly talented artists. Both calendars feature different artworks, all of which is safe for work, but with definite slashy undertones. (You could probably make your colleagues think that it’s nothing but an epic bromance though, if you tried hard enough.)

And just in case this hasn’t been obvious in all the amazing previews you’ve seen around before: Every piece of art for these calendars is absolutely gorgeous, and stuffed full of Merthury goodness and fluffy feelings. Every page is different and beautiful. Seeing all this incredible talent in one place is truly a privilege and will give you loads of warm and fuzzy Merthur feelings. Promise!

Curious? Excited? Hungry to order?
