Bard Bowman, single father of three and human (and secret soothsayer), needs a job. He applies for a position at Greenwood & Co., one he's sure he won't get—except then he does. Thranduil Oropherion, elven single father and CEO of Greenwood & Co., puts out a job ad that in all honesty can't really be fulfilled. Except then the perfect candidate shows up, and Thranduil hires him without second thought.

These are the adventures of Bard Bowman, (no-longer-so-secret) soothsayer and personal assistant to Thranduil Oropherion (who is also involved in most of said adventures).

The Heart's Search
Prompt: For thirty-five girls/boys, the Selection is the chance of a lifetime. The opportunity to escape the life laid out for them since birth. To be swept up in a world of glittering gowns and priceless jewels. To live in a palace and compete for the heart of gorgeous Prince Arthur.

But for Merlin Emrys, being Selected is a nightmare. Leaving his home to enter a fierce competition for a crown he doesn't want. Living in a palace that is constantly threatened by violent rebel attacks.

I'd just love to see Merlin being from a lower caste than most of the others and not liking Arthur at first and just being his usual self, before he starts to actually like the prince. I'm looking for a lot of snark and Arthur secretly liking Merlin's difficult personality.

There's a love triangle in the books, but I'm not really a fan of that, so I'd be very happy if it's left out of the story. Choose whatever reason you like to make Merlin actually enter the competition.

“A forging legend?”
“More like a myth. Nobody knows much about him. Supposedly part of a four man team, he steals and forges artwork and sends the money to children organizations, all under the same alias: The Easter Bunny."
Jack fell back as his mark gripped his arm, the man's wallet still in his grasp as he looked up to face the man that gripped him. He found his gaze locked onto two startling blue eyes and a fedora.
"You can either slip our wallets back into my hand now, or I tell my friend here what you just did. He’s in the FBI, and I can promise you that he won’t be nearly as impressed with your little thieving act as I am.”
"Get to the point Baby Tooth."

'Looking like what?' Aster replied, thrown off-guard by the abrupt address.
The bloke's smile grew; it was a nice smile, if youthful and toothy, and sat pleasantly beneath a cute nose and a pair of blue eyes that were bright as electricity. 'Like that,' he replied. 'You know -' he made a lazy up and down sweeping gesture with his free hand as the barkeep passed him and nodded without saying a word. 'Gorgeous.'

Aster does not want to go on this three day club venture, courtesy of one Priya 'Tooth' Bharandi. He likes his life just fine, thanks ever so, and does not need his friends' meddling. He wants no part, no thank you.

Come Alive
Arthur Pendragon, the youngest Detective Inspector in Camelot, whose job is rumoured to be cursed, stumbles over a series of crimes no one can explain. Merlin Emrys, a constantly broke student working at a shady nightclub to pay the bills, comes in as a sketch artist - one with an unusual gift. The shadow of magic, supposedly eradicated centuries ago, makes things so much more dangerous for everyone. It's hardly a good time to fall in love.

The Fairytales Lie (Tim/Jason)
Witch Drake gapes, "It was rapunzel, it honestly cannot cost that much for some stupid plant. There are like – hundreds of them growing in the Witch Isley's park. I can't – are you telling me you can't afford to pay for some rapunzel?"

We'll Be a Dream
“My mommy's name is Nim. I'm Arthur. Like the king of Camelot,” Arthur bragged.

Merlin gasped in excitement. “My name's Merlin!” he said, beaming. “And my mommy—she says Merlin was a wizard and King Arthur's best friend!”

Arthur frowned in thought. “D'ya think we should be best friends, then?”

“I dunno. You're kind of mean.” Merlin told Arthur matter of factly.

“Well your ears are weird.”

Merlin's hands flew to his ears. “They are not!” he squawked.

“It's okay,” Arthur assured him, “this makes us even. So are we best friends?”


Arthur and Merlin literally collide when they are five years old. From there, they slowly, stumblingly grow into their connected destinies as the king and his wizard.

A Change of Pace
The one in which Arthur works in finances and his suits are various (two) shades of grey, Merlin works in advertisement and has no boundaries whatsoever, Morgana drinks rum, Mithian stages a coup, Agravaine is aggravating, and Elena's house is amazing. Also, Andy Warhol is mentioned in vain, and Arthur and Merlin fall in love in Victorian era style.

How the West Was Won and Where It Got Us
Bilbo is a harried 1st year British literature Ph.D. (early 20th century fiction) who happens to have an interest in spatial narrative structures, a lack of time-management skills, and a tiny apartment with a lot of books and very little furniture. He’s stressed, always, and has a readership grading papers just to have an office to escape to on-campus but it turns out that he has to share his office and people eat his pastries. He tells himself that really, this is, in fact, what he wants to be doing. But sometimes, as much as he loves books, he gets an urge to do something with his hands.
Thorin is a disgruntled M.Arch. 1 in his last year who can’t be arsed to shave and frightens his students, and, frankly, his profs, but his work is top-notch so no one can really say much. They can, however, bully him into running a hands-on design workshop on Saturday mornings, which is complete crap, because he’s used to drinking his Friday nights into oblivion so showing up at Milstein at 7:45 the next morning and trying to teach in a room of wall-to-wall windows as the sun rises is not at the top of his list. Besides, no one ever shows up.

Except one morning, someone does.

The Sons of Durin
Bilbo Baggins is a humble grocer, living a simple, quiet life. He likes his solitude and his predictable routine.

The police say the Sons of Durin are a crime family. The government has labeled them a group of environmental terrorists. Thorin Oakenshield will tell you that they are simply desperate for a home.

But when Bilbo is dragged into the midst of the group as their unwilling burglar, his life will take a turn for the terrifying, and everything he has taken for granted will be torn asunder.

For Your Information
Merlin sighs. "After your...announcement," he explains, "your father decided he needed a bit more information. Which is apparently where I come in. I'm sort of like his gay tutor, it's hard to explain."

The Pact
The ancient Albion Pact demands that the Prince of Wales must take someone magic born as his soul-bonded consort by the time he is 30 or face death. Before he was a Detective Inspector Warlock, Merlin Emrys was young and in love and made a promise to Prince Arthur -- and now Arthur is calling it in.

For Your Information
Prompt: When Arthur comes out as gay to his father, Uther decides to be modern and reasonable about it. In his own way. As he doesn't know any gay men, he decides to befriend Merlin, his old friend Gaius' gay nephew and try to learn about the whole gay thing. It takes approximately two minutes before Uther decides that Merlin and Arthur are meant for each other and need to meet.

I just want a scheming, embarrassingly obvious Uther, trying to get Arthur and Merlin together. Bonus points for him having imaginary discussions with Ygraine about this.

Every Story is a Love Story
Camelot Publishing publishes romance novels, and when Arthur founds a new imprint of gay romance and invites his best friend and pet writer Merlin to write for it, it's a bit too easy to miss the fact that apparently he's living in one.

In which an argument about Dickens leads to a Twitter scandal, broken bones, midnight conversations, and transatlantic longing.
