In case you could possibly have missed all my flails and tweets and mod!fails, Camelot Remix started posting this morning! I've read all of them and I seriously cannot even begin to explain how amazing all the fics and art are. We'll be posting roughly two per day for two weeks and they're all manageable length so you have time to read/look at them all (including the fics or art they're remixing)!

The Sorcerer and the King by winterhill
Arthur/Merlin, canon era, explicit, 85k
Summary: Merlin's death is only the beginning; with no-one to protect the kingdom, Camelot falls to an enemy sorcerer and Arthur is forced to serve in the court that he once ruled. When an escape attempt goes horribly wrong, Arthur is rescued by someone he never expected to see again -- and it's their destiny to put things right.

Okay, so I know what you're thinking. The summary starts with the words "Merlin's death" so this can't possibly go well. Honestly, I'm not sure why I didn't skip right over this one because of that. That's kind of a glaring warning. BUT if you trust me, you'll read this anyway.

The world-building in this story is incredible - it's canon era, but not quite canon. Morgana is in exile, Leon and Gawaine are brothers, there are a lot of subtle differences from the show, but they all work really well here. And the magic is like another character, hell, several characters in the story. I was constantly amazed at the author's ability to seamlessly weave story elements together; things that seemed insignificant were suddenly of incalculable importance.

And Arthur, man, I just love this Arthur. He goes from the early season 1/season 2 princely prat we know (and admittedly love) through tremendous hardship and growth and ends up mature, self-aware, caring, and just wonderful.

This was written for 2010 PaperLegends, so it's possible that I'm completely late to the party on this and everyone has already read it, but if I can get even one of you to read this now, I'll be thrilled.

Apparently some behavioral scientists at Yale University did a study that essentially found that the cuter something is, the more aggressive a reaction it provokes. (Article.)

analysis and evidence... )

So basically, it's totally normal for me (us) to get aggressively angry in the face of such beauty and perfection. I don't know about you guys, but I feel oddly validated. SCIENCE RULES!

I don't know what brought it on today in particular, but I'm feeling an acute need for age gap/age disparity fic. I put out a call on twitter today and got a ton of great recs in a variety of fandoms - Avengers, Sherlock, tons in Harry Potter - and decided to make a list. (I love lists.)

So, give me your age gap recs. Give them to me. I needs them!

To aid in collection of age gap fic recs, here's a google form. (If the fandom you want to add isn't listed, that shouldn't stop you from adding it. I'll update that section as/if more fandoms are added to the list.)

Don't hesitate to use the form - forms are love - but if you'd rather not, feel free to leave your recs in the comments and I'll add them to the list.

Most importantly, though, here's the list! Enjoy!

[ profile] venivincere and I are modding this round, with the careful (and extremely helpful) guidance of [ profile] sophinisba and we're looking forward to an exciting fest.

FAQs and rules will be up in the next day or so. Stay tuned!

One of my prompts (I've left several, don't judge me) over at the Multi-Fandom Pretend Dating/Relationship fest was written by the delightful and talented [ profile] magnolia822.

Prompt: Gwaine is known for his inability to have a long term relationship, but he told his family he has a boyfriend just to get them off his back. So he's in a pickle when he has to go home for some reason (family reunion?) and has to bring said boyfriend. Enter Percy. They've been friends for years, but Percy has always ignored Gwaine's incessant flirting. Gwaine doesn't realize that it's because Percy is deeply, painfully in love with Gwaine and doesn't want to settle for just a one-off. Gwaine manages to convince Percy to be his fake boyfriend for the family event. Things happen. Maybe Gwaine sees Percy flirting with someone else? Maybe he spends so much time talking Percy up to his family members and realizes he's not making any of it (or his affection) up? Whatever it is, Gwaine realizes Percy is The One (yay! \o/) and then has to convince Percy he's serious.

It's already finished - and she just started yesterday! So please go give it a read, it's absolutely delicious and fulfills the prompt perfectly.

Pretend boyfriends/fake boyfriends is my all time favorite trope. It works in any fandom and has the potential for so much delicious heartache and angst. I LOVE that someone is hosting a fest for this! I will read ALL THE FIC, I don't even care if it's not my fandom!

Multifandom pretend dating/relationship fest!

So go prompt and or write! Yay!

I have another post planned for the unbelievable things I've gotten to do with fandom people, but it's going to take more energy than I have right now. :P So instead, my fic-related year in review...

The benefit of keeping lists of all the fic one reads is that it's insanely easy to find things again and share them with other people. The downfall of keeping lists of all the fic one reads is that one can see how deeply one has fallen into a variety of rabbit holes. On that note...

Words read:
Suits 105,910
Harry Potter: 1,355,590
Teen Wolf: 3,649,565 (since July O.O)
Merlin: 7,788,102 (this is actually all of the Merlin I've ever read since I only joined the fandom in January of 2012)
For a total of ... 12,899,167. Holy crap. That's over a million words a month, 248k per week, and 35k a day. That's a lot of words.

Words written (posted):
7,509 - this is hardly worth mentioning, but I'm going to use it as motivation to write more this year. It shouldn't be too hard a goal... O.o

Most important of all, I've gotten to meet an insane amount of fandom people this year: venisenvy, vampthenewblack, donnersun, arcadianmaggie, zigster, fandomhopper, ementior, tuesdaymidnight, and I feel like I'm missing someone but I promise it's not intentional! I also had the pleasure of getting to know bsmog, coolbreeeze, motimetostart, icmezzo and my dear love sessahhh so much better. I can't even begin to mention all of the people, especially on twitter, who I haven't yet had the chance to meet but have changed my life in the best of ways. But beware asyaana, bfigment, sweetandsaltyff, stmurr, fainthearted, magnolia822, mabdi, you're all on my to do list for 2013. :)

Fandom made 2012 utterly amazing - the people, places, connections, friends, all of it - and I am determined to meet more of you in 2013 and make this year even better.

Basically a Merlin series fix-it fest. I think we all need this.

MerlinREDUX Art/Fic Fest

"This was a story of Merlin and Arthur’s relationship coming full circle. It was a story of their joint destiny, of the fact that even death could not separate them, and of the fact that they would always find each other. And there can be no greater story than that, nor one more worth telling."

Seriously, don't.

Hi. If you're anything like me right now, you're still reeling with emotion. My eyes haven't stopped leaking in days, I think. Time doesn't really mean anything, and everything I see triggers a memory or thought from the finale. I might be overexaggerating, but only a little.

Merlin reactions. Spoilers. )

Anyway, my feels about the episode have, like many of you, I'm sure, led me down the path of needing all the fix-it and reincarnation fic there is. I hope someone's making an official list somewhere, but I NEED IT ALL. But I want to recommend one fic so far in particular.
