I'm somewhat of a bottom!Arthur ~connoisseur~, so when [livejournal.com profile] katie_andrew asked for a list of my fave bottom!Arthur fics, I was on it like, well, Merlin on Arthur. I was just gonna shoot her an email but then a couple of my other twitter followers seconded the request and I was all, well, why not make an LJ post and spread the love like, well, Merlin spreads Arthur's legs.

♥ I've tried to make note of any major warnings, but please make sure you read the warnings the author has listed for your own safety ♥ Assume all fics are rated NC-17 and not safe for work ♥ To the best of my ability, pairings are listed in order of occurrence/mention ♥ Please please feel free to leave your own favourites in the comments! ♥

Hey cool dudes, I hope you're all well ♥

Colin Morgan continues to be the bane of my existence.




Outrageous. To quote the best (anon) comment I've ever seen about him, Goddammit he's turning into a hot pokemon trainer.

he can catch me any time

this explains the Gyarados in his pants

id like to play with his pokéballs, if you know what I mean

(I'm sorry. Please have a nice day despite these jokes.)
Porn! Is it possible to have another wanking fest just for this gif, because daaaaamn.

Colin! With the hair! And YET ANOTHER Death Cab shirt! And the baggy jeans! AND SOCK FEET! And, true story, every time I see the picture with the character artwork in the background and the shirtless person that MIGHT! POSSIBLY? !! be him? I wrap my arms around myself, let the gentle Autumn breeze catch in my hair and, staring into the distance, I utter unto the universe, "please". Shirtless!Colin prayercircle, fandom, c'mon. We can make it happen if we BELIEVE.

Arrested Development! MAY 26 MAY 26 MAY 26. WHO'S EXCITED? I'm rewatching the series in preparation, but if you don't have time before the new season, this should get you there -

Community! It's been kind of ordinary, right? :( There's been a couple of jokes that have been as good as ever, but for the most part, it hasn't really had me laughing.

Vikings! LAGERTHA, MY LIGHT, MY LOVE *__________* And also -starts threesome chant-. PLZ.

Discussion! So, it's been a few months since Merlin ended and I know a lot of us are still sad, and it got me thinking a bit about Merlin and how he'd be feeling. So my question for you is, in canon, three months on (now almost four), where do you think Merlin is? Emotionally, physically. Basically, what's your Merlin headcanon for the months after Arthur dies?
I made the mistake of rereading this fic by suntipped when I woke up at a ridiculous hour early this morning.

/crawls into a corner with a blanket and a box of tissues, never to emerge again
It was my birthday yesterday, hurray, huzzah, etc. I was reasonably excited this year, I'm not sure why. Usually I just want to hide in a corner and pretend it's not happening. But I had an okay time. Went to the doctor in the morning, but nothing happened there so it wasn't too bad. Had to go for an xray and blood test today though. Blood tests are always super unfun, my veins are turds and it always takes the nurse several tries to find a vein that wants to give blood. But anyway, results next week, eep.

But back to my birthday, I got the new ipod touch and it has barely left my hand since. I like having a camera and the internet in my fingers at all times. Speaking of that combo, I joined instagram, my username is trussed if you want to follow me. My last upload is a pic of meatballs okay, if that isn't a solid advertisement I don't know what is. (Just let me know who you are please or I won't follow you back.)

My family took me out to lunch and I had some DIVINE pumpkin and feta arancini, oh my gosh, I wanted to eat it for the rest of my life.

I forgot to take a pic at the start of the meal, I was too mesmerised when it arrived at the table *__*

Then we went to Max Brenner's for dessert because it's supposed to be chocolate paradise but it was craaaap, I was totally disappointed. How could something chocolatey let me down? HOW?

And that was pretty much my day. Gosh, I'm 27 now. Motherfucker.

Hope you're all well ♥


I finished two mixes tonight -

A season 2 Lydia [/Peter] fanmix. Listen here.

A mix for good girls with blood on their hands. Listen here.

I think these mixes are the result of the ginormous lady boner I've had for female vocals this year. Mmm, ladies.
HI. I have nothing to talk about but I felt like I was due a post.


Do you like...stuff?

You know, I still pull that out during lapses in conversation. Ah, Simpsons quotes. Always applicable in life.

What's been happening, how are THINGS? Are we happy, are we sad? Are we glad, are we mad? Are we SUPER DEPRESSED BECAUSE THIS MIGHT BE THE LAST TIME WE SEE BRADLEY AND COLIN LOOK AT EACH OTHER EVER AGAIN?


I'm not ready to say goodbye ;____;

Music I'm digging )

This post accomplished nothing.
You guys. This fic.

Them Gods Gonna Hurt You, Son by skellerbvvt
NC-17, ~137k, Merlin/Arthur (main)

For the longest time Arthur and Merlin couldn’t even find an example of another same-dynamic soulbond, much less any particular reason why it happened. So they resolved themselves to learning how to live with it, and learning how to keep that big of a secret. (BDSM AU)

I have never quite lost myself so deeply or emotionally in an AU like I have with this one.

I want to study this fic. I want to take lectures in Arthur-feelings. I want textbooks expanding on the academia and psychology mentioned throughout. I want to sit in a tiny bookshop and listen to the author field questions about minor characters' backgrounds. I want people on the Internet to condescendingly explain all the things I wasn't smart enough to understand.

I want.

I want another 130k.

Despite being set in a foreign universe where sexuality is not the same as it is here, the injustices all have a ring of familiarity. Scattered throughout the story are cleverly written excerpts from their pop culture, mythologies, religious and academic texts that serve to illustrate just how different our universes really aren't. Society there pounds the same rubbish into their heads as it does into ours - that there is a 'right' way to be and a 'wrong' way. It'll break your heart a bit, both for the characters and in recognising their struggles in yourself or others around you.

The characterisations are superb and nuanced. Merlin is quirky and loveable and LOVING and in tune with everything. And this is the most interesting Arthur I think I've ever read. Oh god, he's going to leave you shattered. He's beautiful and angry and broken and startlingly, heartbreakingly relatable.

All in all, it's just a really fascinating, rich journey. Have patience with it - don't go looking for plot. Here, the story is in the world.

Here, the story IS the people.
What if Mama McCall/Papa Stilinski/Papa Argent?
