Our final Merlin big bang! That makes me both happy and sad. I really didn't think I would sign up again, unless I could pull together a sequel to last year's story. But after the finale, gilli_ann and gwylliondream gave me a huge post-5x13 idea that's been eating my brain ever since, so now I can't wait to sign up.
I've been doing almost no reading lately, despite my best efforts, but I have to rec two stories that were gifted to ME!
First, the marvelous modern royal AU (with magic!) written for me for merlin_holidays. Jerusalem is the intriguing and tender story of Arthur, the irresponsible playboy prince, who finds his ways being changed by his new minder, the powerful magic user with a mysterious past. If you love royal AUs as much as I do, you must read it!
The second story is Hawaii 5-0, and was perhaps less a gift than a reward for pestering stellarmeadow ever since our ill-fated trip to Atlantic City with chelseafrew and a_terri_beth. What Happens in Atlantic City... is an adorable and hilarious future fic where Steve and Danny are taking a teenage Grace to see her musical idol in concert--but of course, things never go smoothly for Steve and Danny, do they?
