A Study in Natural Philosophy by Mad_Maudlin

It wasn't all that unusual for people to hide their daemons; Merlin, however, seems to be taking it a little far.


So there was a craze for a while, at least in SGA fandom, for writing daemon!fic--using the concept from Phillip Pullman's "His Dark Materials" trilogy of a animal-form spiritual companion. And it occurred to me, a while ago, that I'd never seen a Merlin version of that, and I quite wanted to. Which, of course, meant I had to write it myself. And then sit on it in anxiety until the whole damn thing had turned into an AU anyway.

This is not a crossover with HDM, so don't worry if you aren't familiar with that canon; I hope everything you need to know about daemons is here in the text. Thanks to Linnet for the beta, as always.

But It's a Good Refrain by lady_ragnell
Arthur doesn't care much about the popular radio program Dragon's Lonely Hearts until his ex-girlfriend calls in to slag him off and get advice. When he calls in and has an on-air argument with the host, it starts off more than he expected, including meddling friends, overinvolved fans, and maybe love. Words:23090

Prompt: http://kinkme-merlin.livejournal.com/29719.html?thread=28365079#t28365079
Arthur/Merlin, modern AU
Merlin is a radio DJ under a ridiculous name like the Dragon Heart or whatever, who talks about music, love, and heartbreak. Arthur is a playboy whose latest girlfriend finally has enough and complains about him on air. Arthur calls Merlin's programme and begins an on-air rivalry about relationships, which proves to be a big hit with the listeners. Arthur, in the end, accuses Merlin of talking shit when he doesn't know anything about love, which prompts Merlin to reveal that he has loved before, only he (Will, Edwin, whoever) turned out to be a cheating bastard. Arthur feels horrible, especially after Morgana hunts him down for what he did to her favourite radio personality, and decides to find Merlin and apologise.
tl;dr Merlin is a radio DJ who gives advice on love and humiliated Arthur on air.

Gadarene by unpossible
“You’re the Prince?” Merlin says, eyeing him. He hesitates, then says, defiant, “The Mad Prince of Camelot.”
Arthur doesn’t move. There’s quiet for a long time, then he says it. “I am.”
“You don’t seem mad,” he says.
The smile wells up from somewhere deep, and very sad. “Well, Merlin,” he says, “give me time.”

Arthur Pendragon is as popular and successful as a sixth former can be. He hasn’t quite figured out his future yet, but it’s going to be brilliant, he’s certain. At least until some daring stranger on a cool motorcycle topples his world upside down on the first day of school. Modern magical AU. Words:58355

Sherlock tracks John down and tries to convince him to come back to 221B Baker St. It just happens that John is serving as a doctor in the wilds of northern British Columbia, and quite angry at him. Four.

Night Shift by corpsereviver2
Former army doctor John Watson is a daylighter, a specialist bodyguard for vampires.
