    Summary

    Merlin is a recent graduate with a double doctorate in metaphysics and physics. Arthur is a low-level paper pusher with a desk in the sub-basement of MI5. They live in a world with ridiculous laws and restrictions against anyone who might be supernatural in any way, shape, or design.

    Merlin has huge debts looming over this head, a few quid left in his bank account, and no job prospects. Arthur is pushing thirty, in a dead-end job with no chances of promotion to fieldwork agent, and is thoroughly bored with his life.

    One ill-advised Craigslist advert, five pushy mates, one nosy all-knowing sister, and a hacked email account later, Merlin and Arthur take the world by storm.

    (Or, more precisely, they take over the world.)

    Summary

    Sequel to 'In Your Name'.
    {REPOSTED}
    The Prince of Wales and the man who saved his life are about to face a brand new set of challenges as Albion's time of need arrives. If only they didn't have to worry about a looming constitutional crisis at the same time.

    More royal residences, a princess on a mission, girls who won't take no for an answer, two ridiculous boys who just can't stop trying to out-noble the other, and reincarnation abound. It's all about to get a lot more complicated.
    IN PROGRESS APRIL 2020(again!)

    Yay, it's reposted, so I can rec again :-)

    2nd part of King & Lionheart series. Modern AU, with student Merlin and Royal Arthur. Developing the relationship to public reveal, with a backdrop of Arthur finally aware of Merlin's magic and a series of magical attacks on the Royal household. WIP, but worth the wait.

    Summary

    {REPOSTED} For someone with so many secrets, Merlin doesn't think he's very good at lying. So agreeing to discuss his friendship with the Prince of Wales at University as part of a televised documentary is probably not a good idea. Juggling magic, Royal protocol, suave (and persistent) Dukes, a Princess with attitude, and a serious amount of coursework was only the start. Oh and then there was Arthur himself. Yeah, probably shouldn't mention much about that...

    Summary

    "Idiot, idiot, idiot", are chanting children in the muddy street. Arthur stops, a bit dazzled. He brings his hand to his forehead to shield his eyes and his heart aches watching their dancing figures in the steaming light. They hop in circles around a tall, skinny boy with large ears, who spins on himself to smile at them ... (you can watch this story trailer on youtube).

    Bookmarker's Notes

    This story snuck up on me. It's set in canon storyline/time, but diverges to allow a unique take on Merlin and his relationships with all the other characters. It's a Gen story, with a background relationship between Arthur and Gwen. But the primary platonic / brotherly relationship is between Merlin & Arthur. You will need a boxful of hankies at the end - you're warned.

    I read this across a week whilst on holiday in sunny Tuscany - the last few chapters while I was sitting by a swimming pool which had been invaded by a couple of families with their boisterous children. So it was rather embarrassing to be sitting there, a handful of tissues in one hand, kindle in the other, and tears streaming down my face, sobbing away. It's been a while since a story sideswiped me in the way this one did, but wow. Yeah the ending(s) might have been telegraphed slightly, but that did not detract from the read.

    On a side note - this story was written in French and then translated by the author into English. For the most part, this is not a problem, but there *are* some obvious translation errors, and ones which are repeated multiple times and become a little wearing. But if you can put all that to one side (and I encourage you to do so), then this is an excellent story.

    I hope to read more from the author in the future.
