Fic and warnings

We have two major warning tags in this community: character death and non-con. Using these isn't optional. Further, our template for posting fic includes a line that is also dedicated to warnings. If you post a story that features either character death or non-con or even dub-con, there has to be an acknowledgement of that (that's what the template is for). This, too, isn't optional.

Please consider that such topics can be depressing and even triggering for some people, and treat your fellow fen with the respect they deserve.

Thank you.

"Magic and mayhem" article in The Star

I just wanted to point people in the direction of this wonderfully subtexty article in Malaysia's The Star. It has interviews with the cast and lovely gems like:

While Merlin is not lacking in action, intrigue, adventure, romance, humour or magic, the appeal of the series ultimately lies in the friendship and brotherhood of Merlin and Arthur, two boys with very different backgrounds and personalities but who share a common goal.

Bradley James: “[The show Merlin] will show a slightly different aspect as viewers will be able to see the growth of both Merlin and Arthur. It will show the brotherhood of these two characters; how they came to respect each other and look out for each other.”

Colin Morgan: “[Merlin]’s always well-intentioned, maybe he’s too passionate and sees things differently. He can’t help but get involved with Arthur and that lands him in a lot of trouble.”
Colin Morgan Dream On - by me

Fanvid Arthur&Merlin

Title: Don't know what you got (till it's gone)
Pairing: Arthur&Merlin
Spoilers: Season 1
Dedicated to: kinseymill and her incredibly beautiful vid What if (hope you don't mind the pimping, dear; I just could'n help)
Info: the story of two entwined destinies, two face of the same coin, according with the Slashy!Dragon. In other words: they love each other’s so much it hurts. And everything is in the eyes.
Warning: my firt time first with MovieMaker but no need to be gentle. Actually, I do apreciate criticisms when addressed politely

"[About] that gay subtext - the tagline for the series is "Keep the magic a secret!" Through a brief expository conversation in the pilot episode with a CGI dragon (voiced by John Hurt) we learn that Merlin and Arthur's fates are "intertwined." Merlin gets himself appointed Arthur's "manservant" and spends his working hours polishing Arthur's boots and suiting him up for jousting matches. Which could be hot if you're into that sort of thing. And these two characters certainly seem to be. Every time they share a scene it looks as though they're on the verge of falling into each other's arms.", Dennis Ayers on AfterElton.com.

Summary:  In which Sir Percival is the Invisible Knight of Camelot and Merlin comes to his rescue (apologies for the rubbish summary!!)

My second Merlin story! This idea just appeared in my head randomly and then had to be written, I think this is what comes of reading about early modern courts and 'advancement' and getting the ear of the King etc. Anyway here it is.. I hope it's not too rambley!

Now beta'd by  the wonderful [info]vensre - any remaining mistakes are of course mine!

to the stars, on the wings of pigs

Title:To the Stars, On the Wings of Pigs Part 3/?
Rating: PG-13, but these kids have the mouths of sailors. Watch out for them fuck words.
Warnings As if I could make money off this. BBC owns my soul.
Spoilers: Know Arthur's a prattish ass with a heart of gold and Merlin's an adorkable kltuz? Read the first two parts? MUST love Space Pirates with every fiber of their being? (Okay, that last one is extreme)
Summary:(srsly. veromonster kinda owns this. She plotted it with me and bid me to write it. She also inspired the Once and Future King goodness in part of it. Though galaxykid inspired Lance to be left handed and missinterociter is cool because she deals with this crack on a daily basis.) Merlin, Gwen and Lance are space pirates aboard the Avalon, captained by the Great Dragon. Arthur and Morgana run into trouble and of course our hapless pirates saves them. Snark and love blossoms across the galaxy.

Part Three: Where no one but Lance is good in a knife fight

And, in case you need to get caught up:
Part One: Where Merlin finds himself to be a hopeless pirate and Arthur realizes he might die for want of a killer heel
Part Two: Where Arthur hates everything and Merlin tries to be menacing
