I quit my job about two weeks ago and so I have had more time to read fic and most of that fic has been in Merlin. I also met deerang2002 last weekend, who is an absolute darling. We had yummy Thai food and then had coffee and talked about life and fandom and fics we love. I realized I clearly have been out of fandom too long when I had not even heard of the "BNF fic."
Here's a conglomeration of recs. May of these have been rec'd on my flist lately. Thus: many of you have probably read them. Either way, I hope you find something new here or are reminded of some great fic you've already read.
If you find any typos, please let me know!
Castle by kick_flaw (Merlin/Arthur, NC-17, 16,000 words, plenty of warnings - especially pertaining to BDSM so review them first)
Summary: Merlin knows that getting off fastest when he’s got some BDSM porno playing loud on the computer doesn’t mean he’d really like to be that bloke, gagged and bent over and bound. Right?
Omg, omg, omg. This fic. OMG. hermette is the luckiest girl ever. kick_flaw wrote a sequel to Castle yesterday which prompted me to read this fic and omgomgomg. It's a Modern AU with a wonderful Merlin characterization to start but it plays with Merlin's interest in BDSM. I won't spoil, but I'll just say kick_flaw does such a great job writing from a sub's point-of-view. This fic is powerful, heady, erotic, filthy, challenging, emotional, just magnificent. If I were of the shrine building sort, I'd be building a shrine for this one. If you think, "Oh, I'm not that interested in reading about kink," think again (though do be advised of the warings if anything is triggery for you).
A writer I've never read before, but such a delight! Very endearing details.
Oh how I love leashy_bebes. I love every fic of hers I get my hands on. Such wonderful writing, careful and fun characterization (Merlin is so innocent and sweet while being such a little succubus). And the porn? Nom nom nom.
A riotous account of two boys being epically stupid.
lolafeist is a master of porn and this is masterful. If you find the thought of a fuck/sex machine dubious, read it.
