Footloose, mushroomtale - Evil Overlord, Inc.
INSTANT REC!!! I loved the concept, I laughed out loud more than once, and I couldn't stop reading once I started. The character voices and world building felt spot on.

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.)

melting_pot_inc: Before the Sun Breaks Another Day
Summary: Three months after her disappearance, Morgana returns to Camelot with a hidden agenda, but she's not the only one keeping secrets, and a series of unintended revelations forces her, Merlin and Arthur on an intertwined journey of revenge, redemption and love.

Review: I loved that the characters were multi-dimensional. The plot made sense, the writing was fantastic, and I loved the interactions between Arthur and Merlin as well as the moments between Merlin and Morgana. All the characters felt fleshed out and I had a hard time putting this story down once I started.

stellarmeadow: FIC: Downfall 1/1
"I want you back." Arthur's gaze holds his. "I need you back. Camelot does not work without you because I cannot work without you."

Breath catching in his throat, it is a moment before Merlin can speak. "I would like nothing better than to return," he says at last. A small smile plays around his lips. "Both to Camelot," he adds, "and to you."

"Thank you." Arthur closes his eyes briefly on the fervent words, his hand squeezing Merlin's, before he leans in for a kiss.

At the touch of Arthur's lips, Merlin already feels as though he has come home.
