Title:to slay the monster first speak its name Pairing: Merlin/Arthur Pendragon Rating: Teen and up (for profanity) Word Count: 5,632 / ? Content:Modern AU, Biopics, Emotional Hurt/Comfort, Fluff and Angst, Happy Ending, Alternate Universe - Modern Setting, Actors, Films, Rock Stars, Homophobic Language, Daddy Issues, Past Character Death, Uther being a git, Past Drug Addiction, Slow Burn, Festivals, Side Balinor / Hunith, Side Elena / Morgana
Summary: Merlin has always loved the ridiculous Seventies glam rock band The Dragonlords, and so when the opportunity arises for him to audition for the part of their lead singer in an upcoming biopic, it seems like a dream come true. Who could resist recreating those iconic videos of the band battling monsters from the dark underworld? The anticipation thrills him as he steps into the draughty hall where the auditions are held, clutching his wooden dragon toy for luck. But just as he succeeds in landing the role, his dragon goes missing - and soon, shadows of the past come back to haunt him and his co-star, Arthur.
Author’s notes: With enormous thanks to Aoigensou for cheerleading so kindly! Disclaimer: not my characters, I'm not getting paid.
Hi everyone. I had a quick question about the term "Ho Yay!" and since I pretty much learned it here, I thought it might be okay to ask. I haven't been as active in fandom in recent years as I once was, but I was surprised when someone mentioned the term to me (not someone here) recently, because I'd thought it was... not out of date, exactly, but maybe not used very much anymore?
I was wondering if anyone could weigh in on this for me, as now that I've thought of it I really want to know. Thank you!
