Author's Note: For tracionn. This is the first of two fics that tracionn won during the @coinelot fandom auction back in spring. She won 10k of fic from me, and was allowed to pick a prompt off my list of AUs I’ll never write. (Which is misnamed, but that’s another story.) As you can see, I haven’t managed to write 10k, but that’s why this is only the first of two stories XD Tracci, I hope you’ll like it! With fanart by brolinskeep.

Summary:

For every achievement, good or bad, one earns a mark on their body. Merlin realises very quickly that this might be a problem when you’re the personal servant, and close friend of Arthur Pendragon – especially when you have to save the damn prat every other day from a magical monster or evil plot.

Title: Poor Management Decisions, Great Life Choices

Rating: PG

Warnings: none noted

Summary: After a string of bankrupted businesses co-owned with Arthur, Merlin confronts his childhood friend/prince/occasional lover about it. Turns out, Arthur is only buying time to make Merlin understand that they are meant to be together after all, screw future heirs to the throne and Merlin's own obliviousness.

Notes: Thank you so much to the wonderful schweet-heart for the swift and extensive beta reading. Thank you for not running away screaming at the sight of my awful punctuation.
Any remaining mistakes are entirely my own.
This fic was inspired by a Kink me! Prompt, the prompt is copy-pasted below.
This fic is cross-posted on AO3.

Kink me! Merlin #37

http://kinkme-merlin.livejournal.com/36623.html?thread=41804047#t41804047

Arthur and Merlin go into business together (any kind of business: owning a store, running a company, selling homemade jewelry, whatever), but they bicker about everything and the business fails completely. Their relationship, on the other hand, is HEA. :) Help/interference from the rest of the Merlin crew would be fab but is not necessary. I just crave failure!fic and the banter/hijinks/angst that would ensue.

MERLIN ♥ A quiet moment
Title: agowilt
Rating: PG-13/T
Warnings/Content Notes: Canon Divergence AU, Arthur knows about Merlin's magic, Hurt/Comfort, Injury Recovery, Love Confessions
Summary: If this was some grandiose ballad, spun by traveling minstrels known for their fondness for the maudlin, this is the act of the tale where Merlin would spring awake, miraculously cured by the power of Arthur's confession alone. But instead he continues his fitful slumber, unaware that Arthur has laid his soul bare like an unclothed babe shivering in the snow.

Arthur doesn't regret it though. It's not like he's cared for such sentimental stories anyway.
Notes: Written for a prompt meme on my tumblr.

Sep-27th-2017 08:28 pm - Reel Merlin 2017/18
Reel Merlin
Hey guys!

The original reel_merlin has been emptied out without notice, and the mod/admin has deleted their LJ. Since Reel is such a fun challenge, I really didn’t want to see it die, though, so I figured we’d do our own Reel this year.

Find it at reelbbcmerlin!

However, there’s going to be a small change: A wider variety of fanworks will be allowed for the challenge this time!

You can write, art, vid, podfic, or translate!

For more info on the Rules, check this post. Also check the FAQ for any further questions.

The schedule for the challenge is as follows:

Sign ups close: 8 Oct 2017
Writing boot camp: November
(Write every day challenge/daily optional check ins)
First check in (optional): 1 Dec 2017
Second check in (mandatory): 5 Jan 2018
Final drafts completed: 31 Jan 2018
Posting begins: 17 Feb 2018

So, if you want to create a fun Merlin AU based on a movie, be it crossover or fusion, but need a gentle kick in the behind to get going, come and check out the challenge! Posting is still four months away so even you super busy and hardworking creators who’re doing Winter Knights and/or Merlin Holidays should have time to come up with something ;)

Summary: Merlin supposedly doesn’t like Arthur, but he does like smoking weed with him. Especially because he knows what comes after, and he loves that.   Inspired by a Tumblr post that read ‘I’m only your friend because we smoke weed and get high together AU’.

This means this was betaed back in the day by asya_ana, but since I’ve rewritten most of the fic there may be some typos, so any remaining errors are my own. More notes on AO3.

Spoilers/Warnings: Attempted non-consensual parent/child incest
Author's Note: This is a re-telling of the French fairy tale Peau d'Âne by Charles Perrault. In the original, a King, after he lost his wife to death, seeks to marry his own daughter. Naturally I had to turn it into a Merlin AU.
Summary:

It was not long after the prince’s eighteenth birthday that the king found that his sorrow had lifted, and that, for the first time, he felt light and happy – almost joyful. Since the day his wife had passed, the king, for the first time, thought that he might want to marry again.
