Welcome and Masterpost


I am a fan of BBC's Merlin and want Arthur and Merlin to have all the sex which seems to have somehow translated into me writing them having Every Fandom Cliche Ever. This is a fic journal, so friending is open but I generally don't friend back as there is no f-locked content. Since I'm not logged in too often, I don't respond to comments that often, but each one is carefully treasured and petted and loved and named George.

If you want to get in touch with me, just ask your question directly in a comment or send me a PM, because I do respond to those, generally as soon as I see them.


I have recently started rating my fics. These ratings are in the tags, not in the header, in case people were only in a PG sort of mood or something. In general, I use the movie rating system, which means that I do rate for strong language if there is enough of it, as well as for violence and sexual content (NC-17 pretty much means that there is sex "onscreen"). A lot of times I rate to be safe, and if there are no warnings to go with a rating it's rated for language or for sexual content that doesn't need any specific warnings.

As for warnings, I generally warn based on the required warnings at [ profile] kinkme_merlin. I often warn for safety even when something shows up as a mention and not explicitly.

If I forget to warn for something in a fic, please let me know. I would much rather be aware and fix it if something triggered you than to wander along in ignorance.


If you want to do a translation, piece of fanart, podfic, or what have you for one of my stories, please consider this blanket permission for that! Just let me know when you've done it and where you've posted it so I can post a link on the story page for anybody who might want to see it.

If you prefer to read on the Archive of Our Own, all of my fics are now posted there and can be found at my page.
