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.
