Most fandom-related stuff will remain unlocked.


If you've just friended me, please comment here (permanently screened) to let me know why.

WHAT WHAT? CHYEAAHH I AM BACK WITH RECS :D

I had a fugly hiatus, but the sheer amount of people who kept visiting my journal each week to view the past rec posts has blown me away and guilted me into continuing. (That plus a few f-listies who'd only friended me for my recs and prodded me about being completely useless ♥.)

I feel years away from the Merlin fandom, and I sort of am. If you have any recs of recent fics you want to share, let me know :)

Last Century's Week's Recs: Issue V

Dedicated, as always, to Mielle ♥ This is also for all the people who became lazy after series one ended and didn't bother to check their fanfic updates list (er...I'm included here) as well as for those who became fans right before or after series two arrived. The recs are from all over the timeline of fandom, so enjoy what you haven't read (and what you have).

Title: Here is a Brighter Garden (for tobreakthespell)
Rating: PG-13
Pairings: Merlin/Arthur; includes Gwen/Morgana
Warnings: Themes of capture and imprisonment. Slight depictions of violence.

Summary:
It began with a death. It began with a prophecy.

When Hunith of Ealdor passed into the spirit world, two seers separated by distance but joined by blood were startled awake by the sudden rush of power released throughout the land.

He had finally awoken.

Original fairytale: Allerleirauh (or, Tattercoats/Coat of Many Furs)
(An ungodly chunk of the fairytale has been modified in my re-telling.)

[Thanks go out to nohartsmile (♥) for her cheerleading & encouragement. Thanks also to M for her wonderful beta skills. The title is from Emily Dickinson's "There is Another Sky."]

07 January 2011: This was originally locked about a day after I had first posted it to tobreakthespell, because I felt dissatisfied with it. I just re-read it now and it turns out that I'm fond of it in an odd sort of way. So here it is again for those who'd wanted to read it for themselves but couldn't. ♥

NOOOO I'M LATE. :( I don't even have time to read fanfiction updates anymore since classes have begun once again and all my icontest comms need care&love. URGH.

And it is definitely not because I've just begun marathoning Supernatural and it's not because I'm obsessed with that show now, nope.

After compiling this list of recs I realised just how many I could have added - those will be saved for a future, similarly-based issue since this topic is one I always love to search for.

For some reason, there's something amazingly satisfying about watching someone else discover the all-too-evident bond between the prince and his manservant. So I've decided to base this week's recs on fics that have captured that bond through other people's eyes. [I will have to do another one of these in the future as there were too many to put into one post omg YAY.]

[HAPPY HOLIDAYS, ALL :)]

So...I was going to make some drabbles/etc. for cifan70's Christmas present part II, but then I had a different idea, and then IT RAN AWAY FROM ME. AND BY RAN I MEAN COPULATED WITH FIFTY BUNNIES AND RAN AWAY, BUT NOT BEFORE IT LEFT ME THOUSANDS OF TINY BABY BUNNY PRESENTS.

This, therefore, is far from done. It has grown to epic proportions in my mind and this is only Part I of this part of the - I mean, are you getting this? WHY DID IT GROW. I swear, there is Arthur/Gwen in this. There is a way that Gwen enters the plot. But, LMAO, it hasn't happened yet, and if I wait until it has then I won't be motivated to actually finish this, even if it's for a lovely f-listie. [This stalling of the Gwen storyline may be a product of the endless Merlin/Arthur obsession that is my mind, HA, but we'll see.]

Dedicated to cifan70. I hope you end up liking the whole thing, especially when it actually begins to fit your requested pairing. D:

THE QUEST
Summary: To save his sister, Prince Arthur undertakes a quest - and finds there is more to his heart than he expects.
Inspirations: The Princess Bride & amerlinworld

PREVIEW:


once, I had a sisterCollapse )

Guys. YOU GUYS. It's over D: And we now need a deluge of fics to get past the wishy-washiness of series 2 and PREPARE OURSELVES FOR WHAT ABSOLUTELY MUST BE AN EPIC SERIES 3 OR I WILL THROW A FIT OR TWO OR FIFTY.

So. Hopefully I can manage this without any spoilers for those LAZY BUGGERS who haven't watched the last episode yet. Actually, you may want to head out immediately (OMG BUT MEM THIS FIRST /desperation) because the theme of this week's recs may clue you in on either something that happened in the ep or something that didn't happen in the ep. Heeee.

Title: COUP DE SNOWFLAKES (or, Dear God, I Suck at French)
Rating: PG
Pairings: Merlin/Arthur, Gwen/Morgana
Warnings: Crack. Parody. Well, perhaps not the latter, but I'd like to think so.

Summary: Merlin is one special snowflake. Literally.
"Beneath him came a growl, and Merlin was shaken from underneath as another snowflake shoved him angrily."

[Thank you to rotrude for the impromptu prompt. I apologise - you probably did not expect that line from your post to spring this well of absolute crack.]

[Oh, and a thankyou to didzease as well for slapping me around and fixing my title's grammar. Though those who actually speak French are probably still highly embarrassed for me, anyway.]

Because - Jesus, people - I have over 220 fic recs saved (and that's just Merlin/Arthur) in my LJ memories, and they're not doing anyone any good just sitting there.

What makes these weekly recs different from all the rest? Eh. Who cares? More goodies to read, so gtfo :).

Apparently I only fail at beta-ing NC-17 bits. I have no compunctions about reading them o.O. Although I do sort of hide, hunch down and pretend I'm not reading it :D OMG OKAY I'LL GET ON WITH THE RECS.

I should really begin making icons outside of just for icontests.

These are most of the icons I made for icontests in September - November. Hopefully it's evident that I'm (slowly) improving :)
