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, [livejournal.com profile] gilli_ann and [livejournal.com profile] 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 [livejournal.com profile] 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 [livejournal.com profile] stellarmeadow ever since our ill-fated trip to Atlantic City with [livejournal.com profile] chelseafrew and [livejournal.com profile] 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?

I don't usually do many recs, simply because I'm usually weeks behind on my reading and everyone's already beaten me to the squee. But in this case, I've been involved with this story for YEARS -- and now it's finally done and posted for [livejournal.com profile] paperlegends and I can share it with all of you!

Champagne from a paper cup by [livejournal.com profile] anna_zee (Merlin/Arthur, Gwaine/Elena, NC-17, 38,000 words)

This is a classic modern AU of the best sort. Merlin, a young medical student with secret magical abilities, goes to intern at the Camelot United Football Club, where he meets flirtatiousnoble Gwaine, hardass Uther, loyal Morgana -- and Arthur, the star striker with a heart of gold (if you can get to it).

It's hot, funny, angsty, and sweet. Why, Cori, you sound biased (I hear you saying). Yes, I am. For good reason.

Go. Read it. It will bring you happiness.

Fic for me!

I'm going to do the standard fic reveal post in a minute (or...a while), but first I must pimp one of my favorite holiday gifts that you might not see otherwise because [livejournal.com profile] anna_zee is being shy and not posting to any comms.

Those of you who follow the reel_merlin challenge every year might remember Anna's utterly delightful take on The Proposal from the round before last: For Worse or For Better. In fact, just go reread it anyway. I'll wait.

So then Anna was traumatized by season 2 and then traumatized even more by season 3, and she didn't write anything else FOR AGES. This was personally painful to me, as I'm sure you can imagine.

But sometimes she would talk about these characters and what she thought they'd be doing later on, and particularly how they might spend their first Christmas. "You should write that," I would say idly. AND THEN SHE DID.

So if you still have a little room left for some lovely Christmas schmoop, go check out So This Is Christmas by [livejournal.com profile] anna_zee.

And then leave her some love, because she's still all cute and shy and stuff.

Did you ever wonder if Arthur had hidden depths of repressed homoerotic manpain? Of course you did. Did you ever wonder what that would look like set to epic 80s emo rock?

You need wonder no more. [livejournal.com profile] sisabet has given it to us.

The Slash Dragon diva solo literally made my entire afternoon.
