"Merthur fanfic podcast?"
A Modern day Merlin AU set at the University of St Andrews, featuring teetotal kickboxers, secret wizards, magnificent bodyguards of various genders, irate fairies, imprisoned dragons, crumbling gothic architecture, arrogant princes, adorable engineering students, stolen gold, magical doorways, attempted assassination, drunken students, shaving foam fights, embarrassing mornings after, The Hammer Dance, duty, responsibility, friendship and true love…
In which Prince Arthur meets Merlin and all hell breaks loose.
"The king sent me to get you," Merlin said, with a tone that implied strongly that he wasn’t rolling his eyes where Arthur could see, but just wait until his back was turned. "He said you’re to get changed into formal clothes and meet him in the Great Hall, there’s a delegation coming from the Summer Court."
Student AU. Arthur is an Oxford Blue. Merlin is an Oxford cox. Lancelot is Merlin’s romantic-dalliance-loving friend. Morgana is horribly clever; Gwen is cleverly waiting for Lancelot to grow up. Merlin and Arthur rub each other the wrong way, at first, but it soon becomes clear that Arthur is a university-class rower with a worlds-class heart.
Merlin accidentally makes everybody in Camelot fall in love with him. Everybody except Arthur, that is.
A new suitor for Arthur has come to town, and Camelot’s gossip mill is running full-speed. But when the rumors become malicious, Merlin takes it upon himself to fix things.
In which dragons & ghosts & prejudices are confronted, Merlin wears a hat (twice) and a dress (once), Arthur breaks some crockery (lots), there are more pranks than pillowfights but at least one of each, and many secrets are revealed.
Arthur is the Royal Arbiter for Suitable Suitors’ Disputes. He (and his trusty companion, the golden-dragon-tasselled hat) alone can determine who is fit to woo royal servants and other assorted courtiers in Uther’s court. (In light of the sentence above, the following may not appear to be a truthful statement, but: not as cracky as that makes it sound. Really.) This time: Arthur arbitrates a dispute (with heretofore unforeseen wisdom); Merlin observes. In Part Two: in a Rather Predictable Set of Events, Merlin becomes the object of a Suitable Suitors’ Dispute. Arthur attempts to arbitrate. This time, he does not do so well.
Arthur is a prattish Executive VP of the Pendragon Corporation with a disturbingly non-ironic love of Demotivational posters. Merlin is a tree-hugging barista with a “magic” tongue. Morgana’s a peeping Tom and her breasts have superpowers. Gwen and Lancelot get married. Owain is the company bicycle. Arthur attempts to steal Merlin’s affections from Will through epic DDR combat. Merlin gets drunk a lot. There is a pillow fight, and a helicopter ride, and rooftop confessions, and Arthur decides Merlin really is his destiny, whether he likes it or not.
In which Arthur attempts to teach his knights, his knights attempt to woo Merlin and Arthur is definitely not jealous….
"To my great-nephew Arthur I bequeath Tintagel Distribution, wholly and without reserve, save for one condition. You must marry, and stay married, for a period of no less than six months. You’re a wonderful businessman Arthur, but a full life needs love and companionship, not just a string of affairs. Settle down young Arthur, and your life will be the richer for it." Arthur needs to marry to take control of Tintagel Distribution. Fortunatly he knows the right man for the job.
Three years after being diagnosed with HIV, Merlin Emrys is managing, if not quite coping. Enter Arthur Pendragon, the man who doesn’t know how to take no for an answer.
Hope these are what you’re after!
