Aug-24th-2018 05:21 pm - COiNELOT reduced tickets available
SM Head and Moon

For only 2 weeks you can buy a limited amount of reduced tickets for COiNELOT Reincarnated.

These tickets include:

  • access to the convention on the booked day(s)

  • meals at the hotel from Friday night through Sunday night (depending on your ticket)

  • the chance to win some cool prizes at COiNELOT

  • the opportunity to talk to other Merthur fans in person :D

Your options for tickets are:

  • Single day tickets £ 60

  • Short weekend ticket (any two days of the convention) £ 110

  • Full weekend ticket £ 150

There are only 15 spots available!

Please note that you have to find your own hotel or - if the Abbots Barton still has rooms available - pay the full price for the stay there.

If you’ve been thinking that you wish you’d have booked your ticket while they were on sale, or you live nearby and didn’t want to stay at the hotel with everyone else or wanted to attend for just a day, or if you literally just heard about this convention and want to participate no matter what, this is your last chance!

You have two weeks, until Sept 9 to buy a ticket. Please book your ticket(s) through this form and await further instructions via email on how to pay. Due to PayPal’s horrendous fees, we can only accept bank transfers.

Summary: Merlin realizes that Morgana has magic and that he needs to help her before anyone else realizes it, too. He agrees to give her illegal magic lessons on top of all the work he does for Arthur and chores he handles for Gaius.
Arthur hears rumors of something going on between Merlin and Morgana and isn't pleased.
To Merlin, it just seems like the prince is determined to monopolize his thoughts- as if he didn't already. With even more secrets to keep, Merlin is glad he knows how to juggle.

Author's Note: This is the second fic I wrote for @tracionn, who bid on me during the @coinelot auction in spring 2017. She won 10k of fic from me, and the first one I wrote didn’t even get to 5k, so here’s another one, this time well over 5k, so I feel better for not having ripped off tracci ;) Plus, there’s a cute cat.

I must thank @deheerkonijn for being one of the best people on the planet because she said yes when I approached her about maybe doing one small illustration for this fic, and then she came out and did three. So, in case anyone had any doubts about how awesome DHK is, they should be well eradicated now.

For more notes, check out the fic on AO3.

Summary: In which Merlin finds a cat, Arthur’s lost without his favourite girl, and Morgana doesn’t stop rolling her eyes at her brother.

What is Resurrection?

Resurrection is a non-profit Fanthology book, made to celebrate Merlin’s upcoming 10 year anniversary! We will be a focus on what happens AFTER and DURING the end of merlin. The book will be divided into 3 sections. Ruin(Part one of the anthology will feature pieces about canon, before and during the Battle of Camlann and Arthur’s death.), Relic (Part two of the anthology follows Merlin as he waits for his king’s return.), and Resurrection (The King and his knights have returned! Part three of the anthology is about reunions and and coming home — Merlin’s wait is finally over.)

What is a Fanthology book?

A Fanthology book is a Fan Anthology book. It’s basically a compilation of fanworks.(Including writing and art!) All the content is under a certain theme. Our theme is “BBC Merlin”.

Our goal is to create a gorgeous book full of beautiful pieces created by merlin fans for merlin fans and to celebrate the 10 year anniversary of BBC Merlin’s airing.

Our call for Artist and Writers will go up on January 19th, 2018

Dec-11th-2017 01:49 pm - Kinks of Camelot - The Awakening

Calling all kinksters, memers and otherwise anonymously inclined friends,

Like a phoenix from the ashes (or a certain King rising from the lake) we raise you, the lovely BBC Merlin fandom, the brand-new, rejuvenated Kink Meme! It’s been almost two years since the old one was last active—definitely long enough of a holiday, we think. So what we plan to do is to start anew, completely clean slate, all bets off.
But we will need your help.
Right now, we’re only a team of two, and while your mods are of course as dedicated to keeping this baby running as Merlin is to his king, there is a lot of extra work required to file and archive all the lovely prompts and fills. That’s where you come in!
We would like to have some helpful busy-bees to assist us with keeping the kink meme archive up-to-date. This would mean regular sessions of going through the recent prompt and fill lists, and then making linked, tagged posts so people can search for them easily from our tumblr. The more people we get to help us, the less work it will be for everyone involved, of course. We are hoping to rotate duties on a regular schedule, so if everyone lends a hand you might only need to help out once every few weeks!
If we grabbed your interest and you think you’ll have the time to step up to the duty, please let us know either on this post or send a message on our tumblr.
Thanks already in advance, and may this meme prosper for years to come <3
Cup in Hand

Come celebrate the Holidays with us Merlin style at camelot_drabble: An anon exchange fest of Christmas gifts – drabbles, drawbles, or any fanwork that tickles your fancy! Hoping to see you there!

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.


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


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.

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 ;)
