I am so sorry, people who follow my fic from over here. I completely fell off on posting when I posted fic. But there's been, um, a lot? I got a blackout on my Trope Bingo card. And have written a few fics since. So under the cut I'm going to make a brief-ish list (titles, fandoms/pairings, maybe a little more info) of all the fics I've posted since "A Council of Queens."

Merlin, Les Mis, Xena, Sleepy Hollow, 2 Broke Girls, Pacific Rim )

Hopefully you find things in there that you enjoy, and I'll try not to go so long without updating again!

Title: License to Thrill
Wordcount: ~14,000
Warning: brief violence
Summary: Merlin's employees bet him the recipe for the most addictive cocoa in the world that he can't find out what the hot blond who comes into his chocolate shop does for a living within the month. He ends up getting far more than he bargained for.
A/N: Written for this prompt on the meme for summerpornathon's Charity Bonus Challenge (though it somehow ended up not having porn), and for the "bets/wagers" square on my Trope Bingo card. The title is from "I Wish I Was James Bond" by Scouting for Girls.
Disclaimer: I do not own Merlin.

You can read this fic on the AO3.

Title: Steal Your Heart Away
Wordcount: ~24k
Summary: Grantaire comes back from his latest job redistributing priceless art to find that Fantine has hired an archangel to work at Sur-Mer Antiques. It certainly makes his life more interesting.
A/N: The Grantaire-is-an-art-thief fic this fandom never knew it needed. Also, the "au: other" square on my Trope Bingo card. Finished only with endless encouragement and word wars with [ profile] samyazaz. Title from "Love Love Love" by Of Monsters and Men.
Disclaimer: I do not own Les Mis.

Read the fic on the AO3.

Title: Let Me Occupy Your Mind (As You Do Mine)
Wordcount: ~14,000
Warnings: Full list of kinks and warnings at the fic, which is probably more efficient. There are a lot of them. This is basically a fourteen-thousand-word PWP.
Summary: It’s not the kind of building that has a bouncer. There isn’t a line out the front, there isn’t music pounding out into the street. There are just blacked out windows and the word Kattegat in silver block letters on the side of the building, and a short man with dark hair and a suspicious squint standing at the door checking the ID of anyone who enters. It could just be a business building, in the wrong district of the city. It could be, but it isn’t.
A/N: Looking at my life, looking at my choices. Title from Gotye's "Heart's A Mess."
Disclaimer: I do not own Vikings.

Read the fic on the Ao3.

Title: Find Out What I'm Feeling
Wordcount: ~19,370
Content notice: contains some references to Grantaire's drinking, but it isn't a focus of the story.
Summary:When Marius's girlfriend Cosette writes an article about Enjolras's campaign for a seat in the state House of Representatives (not to mention his attempts to start a new political party) and mistakenly mentions Grantaire as his boyfriend, Enjolras ends up pretending to date him in the media storm that follows. He's not sure why Grantaire says yes, but he's starting to want to find out.
A/N: I am just wandering all over fandoms like nobody's business lately. Written for the "fake relationship" square on my Trope Bingo card (and I got my bingo!). Title from "Feelings Show" by Colbie Caillat.
Disclaimer: I do not own Les Mis.

Enjolras will always blame the whole thing on Marius, because it starts when Marius brings his new girlfriend to one of their campaign meetings.

Title: The Sun Hasn't Died
Wordcount: ~10,800
Warnings: past character death, mentions of violence and rioting and other consequences of the apocalypse
Summary: You have to figure out how to survive somehow, after the world ends. Elena does it by stealing horses and roaming, at least until she finds the village of Camelot and its residents, especially its librarian.
A/N: Written for the free space on my Trope Bingo card and because Emjayelle prompted an Elena/Mithian apocalypse AU on tumblr. I restrained myself from putting novels worth of backstory and minor character interaction into this, you should be grateful. Title from "Radioactive" by Imagine Dragons.
Disclaimer: I do not own Merlin.

Read it over on the AO3: ... if there's nobody around to appreciate her cleverness, well. Elena always did better on her own anyway.
lady_ragnell: (roses)
Title: How Much a Heart Can Hold
Wordcount: ~2,400
Summary: The problem with having two boyfriends is Valentine's Day.
A/N: Written for the "holiday" square on my trope bingo card (you may think from looking at it that I intend to do the top line. If I ever come up with something good for "au: steampunk" that may even be true).
Disclaimer: I do not own Merlin.

Mostly, Gwen doesn't care if things aren't perfect. )
lady_ragnell: (Default)
Title: The Space Between the Threads
Wordcount: ~1700
Warnings/Enticements: crossdressing (for charity but also implied for pleasure), strong hints of D/s, very unresolved UST
Summary: It would have been nice of Arthur to warn Gwaine that his sister is coming to stay. Especially before he offered his guest room for Gwaine to change in before the charity event they're doing.
A/N: Written for the "crossdressing" square on my Trope Bingo card. This isn't rated because it's the closest you can get to a PWP without actually having any porn involved. The title is from a quote by Lori Howe: "Lace is as much about the space between the threads as it is about the threads themselves."
Disclaimer: I do not own Merlin.

Oh now. What have we here? )
lady_ragnell: (roses)
Title A Statue Strong Enough for Two
Wordcount: ~39,000
Summary: Elena is a street-level superhero--she's never been one of the ones who wanted glory. Now, though, a visit from an old enemy forces her to step up and see what she might have to do with the Sidhe who invaded and were sent away twenty years ago. Luckily, she has fellow superheroes, especially the Huntress, to back her up, and a new girlfriend in her regular life to make things feel more normal. (Though nothing, of course, can ever be normal when you've got a secret identity.)
Warnings: this being a superhero story, there is some violence and minor character death, including one brief scene where a character deliberately injures herself in the course of fighting evil, and another where two characters who are friendly spar and come out with some bruises. None of the above is very explicit, but do be warned that it is present.
A/N: Written for this prompt on the meme. The title is from Ian Axel's "This is the New Year."
Disclaimer: I do not own Merlin.

Because of the length, I'm not reposting the full text here, so you can find it all on the AO3, right here.
lady_ragnell: (roses)
Title: As Long As We Have We
Wordcount: ~17,000
Warning: past minor character death
Summary: Arthur thinks he's going to have to spend Christmas alone--at least until he somehow acquires a whole house full of strays.
A/N: My [ profile] merlin_holidays fic! (If anyone is wondering why the title changed since that posting, let me tell you: when you are looking for quotes to title your fics from always find a second source because sometimes the first one is wrong. This now-corrected snippet is from How the Grinch Stole Christmas.) Written for [ profile] neojas and betaed by the ever-trusty plot-wrangling [ profile] flammablehat.
Disclaimer: I do not own Merlin.

Part One )

Part Two
lady_ragnell: (roses)
Title: Pink and Black and Blue (for You)
Wordcount: ~1600
Warnings: This fic is about negotiating a relationship of which BDSM is a part, and includes D/s, flogging, rough sex, some references to bondage, and one brief scene where Morgana goes farther than she means to (with Gwen's understanding and no objection, and with apologies afterwards).
Summary: Gwen and Morgana slowly negotiate themselves towards something they both want.
A/N: Written because of 5x06 and for the Gluttonous Pornficlet Reunion a few weeks ago. The title is from "Bruises," by Chairlift.
Disclaimer: I do not own Merlin.

I'll start you off easy. )
lady_ragnell: (Default)
Title: Past These County Lines
Wordcount: ~6,300
Warnings: American high school AU, John Hughes references, brief reference to Agravaine/Morgana and to (unrelated to that) past minor character death, makeouts, and boys making poor decisions (don't skip school, kids!).
Summary: Merlin's never skipped school, and he's never had a real conversation with Arthur Pendragon. Both of those things are about to change.
A/N: It is a truth universally acknowledged that every writer in fandom who likes writing AUs will eventually write a high school AU. This is mine. Written for this prompt at kinkme_merlin, title from "Burn and Shine" by the Elms.
Disclaimer: I do not own Merlin.

Senior Skip Day isn't for another month. )

Title: Every Story is a Love Story
Wordcount: ~24,600
Summary: Camelot Publishing publishes romance novels, and when Arthur founds a new imprint of gay romance and invites his best friend and pet writer Merlin to write for it, it's a bit too easy to miss the fact that apparently he's living in one.
A/N: Written for this prompt at the meme (and seriously, do you leave these prompts out as Nell-bait or something?). Title is a song title from Aida: the Musical. The publishing industry has been shamelessly abused for literary purposes.
Disclaimer: I do not own Merlin.

Part One )

Part Two | Part Three

Title: But It's a Good Refrain
Wordcount: ~23,000
Summary: Arthur doesn't care much about the popular radio program Dragon's Lonely Hearts until his ex-girlfriend calls in to slag him off and get advice. When he calls in and has an on-air argument with the host, it starts off more than he expected, including meddling friends, overinvolved fans, and maybe love.
A/N: Written for this prompt at kinkme_merlin. Title from Regina Spektor's "On the Radio."

Part One )

Part Two | Part Three
lady_ragnell: (Default)
Title: Words That I Can't Say
Wordcount: ~8,100
Summary: Elena's got a massive crush on her politics TA, and Mithian's doing absolutely nothing to discourage it.
A/N: Title from "I Owe You a Love Song" by Shiny Toy Guns, set in the same 'verse as I Owe You a Love Song and A World of Make-Believe. It should make sense as a standalone, but you might want to read Owe You a Love Song for context. For the moment, this is the last story in this 'verse.
Disclaimer: I do not own Merlin.

I think I may have to marry Mithian Fitzroy. )
lady_ragnell: (Default)
Title: I Owe You a Love Song
Wordcount: ~10,200
Warning: character spoiler for 4x11
Summary: In which Arthur's courting Gwen by mix CD (and other means) and Merlin is a backwards Cyrano de Bergerac who builds robots.
A/N: So I've had the idea for this fic for ages, and I decided to write it for the holiday season for all of you to enjoy. I should say that all musical artists who are mocked are mocked with love since all of them are in my music library. All music links go to YouTube (my internet, alas, is too slow to make a fanmix for all of you). Title from Shiny Toy Guns, "I Owe You a Love Song." Further notes at the end of the fic. Let me know if any of my links are borked, there were a lot of them!
Disclaimer: I do not own Merlin, nor do I own any of the music, videos, or webcomics used in this story.

The only thing that would be too much too soon is Celine Dion )
lady_ragnell: (Default)
Title: Stealing That Extra Bow
Wordcount: ~1000
Summary: Merlin gets home late and finds a surprise.
A/N: Set in the Show Business 'verse, and may actually slay you with fluff. Because fandom has been giving me joy today and I want to give some back. Also because when I wrote my last short [ profile] flammablehat ended up asking me for something that's a spoiler for this fic and I live to please her.
Disclaimer: I do not own Merlin. But I do own Kilgharrah's Adventures.

Merlin hates going to conventions without Arthur. )
lady_ragnell: (Default)
Title: Get That Happy Feeling
Wordcount: ~1,000
Summary: Merlin is a bit worried when he gets the first script for season four of Kilgharrah's Adventures.
Warning: SPOILERS FOR 4x04
Notes: So I was capslocking about 4x04 and went "GAY DRAGON DADDIES" and then I went "obviously this episode cannot pass without something involving No Business Like Show Business." Title, as always, from "No Business Like Show Business" from Annie Get Your Gun.
Disclaimer: I don't own Merlin. But I do own Kilgharrah's Adventures.

All of the baby dragons are going to laugh and call it names. )
