There's No Makebelieving by miakun
Merlin/Arthur, Gwen/Lancelot, Morgana, Will, various, PG-13, 77K
The first time Morgana's step-brother and her flatmate meet, Arthur throws up on Merlin's shoes. And that might be the highlight of their relationship.

I've had the pleasure of reading this story in stages for a while now, and I finally get to tell the rest of you to go read it! This is a modern!AU populated with characters brimming with life in their new roles and new misadventures. Mia's writing is really gorgeous, full of detail and feeling, and she has this breezy pace that makes the time rush away as you're reading. What I love most about this story is how real it is - things are messy and complicated and don't always end how you'd expect, but each storyline is given such thought and attention that it feels absolutely right.

Read for the wonderful and slow-building Merlin/Arthur progress, the unholy trinity that is Merlin, Will and Morgana as housemates, and the entirely fabulous supporting characters - Elaine, especially, is my new favourite OC in the history of everything ever, and I promise you will love her too.

Thoughts while festividding: omg, this will never be done. Also, it's rubbish. Why did I even sign up for this when everyone else participating is so much better than me? Ack, woe.

Thoughts while working on the virtual season: omg, this will seriously never be done. Also, it's awful. Why am I doing this, everyone else on the project is amazing and I am fail! Ack, woe, second verse, same as the first.

See also: my academic research and writing. Sigh! Self-confidence, this was a really bad time to go out the window, don't you know I have deadlines?

ANYWAY. I procrastinated on all of that today by writing a thing for i_claudia's Merlin wall!slam fest, which I shall post now in an effort to appear like I'm on top of things!

Paths, Nimueh/Morgause, R, 600 words, set sometime after 1x04Collapse )
