Title: A Council of Queens
Wordcount: ~3300
Warnings: Arthur's death and the grief from it are a theme throughout, and the fic also glances over other character death, as well as past mind control in the form of Vivian's love spell.
Summary: Mithian returns to Camelot to work towards Albion's future, and finds herself working through her own and others' complicated history with Camelot.
A/N: I have had this fic in mind pretty much since canon closed, and I am relieved I finally got it written! It is for the "futurefic" square on my Trope Bingo card.
Disclaimer: I do not own Merlin.

You can read the fic on the AO3.

Three Fics

Jun. 7th, 2013 12:14 am
lady_ragnell: (roses)
I thought I'd posted two fics from early last month, but it turns out I didn't, I'm sorry! And as I finished a third tonight, I figured I would post them all at once.

1. What Isn't Being Said, which was my contribution to the [livejournal.com profile] rarewomen fest. It's a short gen fic for a tiiiiiny fandom called "Young Blades," which is basically The Three Musketeers: The Next Generation with a lot of crack and ridiculousness (which I will absolutely talk your ear off about if you ask me about it). In the spirit of the fest, this is two ladies who don't get to interact much in canon having some episode tags.

2. I Bet A Lot Of Folks Can Sing In Harmony, Vikings OT3, ~18k, rated E on the Ao3, a modern AU where Ragnar and Lagertha are on a tour with their band and find Athelstan busking in a park and make him their new opening act.

3. Posted tonight! Where You Go I Will Go, Vikings OT3 again, ~12k, rated E, and it is a soulmate AU where soulmates can sometimes come in threes, and that causes some amount of confusion for poor Athelstan. And also where I discover that apparently I have a lot of Ruth/Naomi feelings.

So hopefully you enjoy whichever of these are relevant to your interests!

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: (roses)
Title: Heavy is the Head (That Wears the Crown)
Wordcount: ~2300
Warnings: 5x13 spoilers: this fic is set after Arthur's death and deals with Gwen's grief as she keeps going, as well as (to some extent) Merlin's. There is also another character death. Past Arthur/Gwen, implied possible Gwen/Leon Read, as always, with your own self-care in mind.
Summary: Gwen has to be Queen. There's no time to mourn.
A/N: This is the first of four fics that I'm intending to write post-finale. There will be one for each of the OT4, but they won't necessarily all be congruent or share the same headcanons--just my way of dealing with things and assimilating the new canon. As is somehow generally true of my canon-era fic, none of them will be terribly happy.
Disclaimer: I do not own Merlin.

It isn't like the stories. )

Title: You Need Better Costumes
Wordcount: ~2,000
Warnings: crack, ridiculousness, inexplicable Doombots, also the gen comes with Strong Implications of Arthur/Merlin but I do not think that shocks most of you
Summary: When a mission takes the Avengers to England, they run across another crime-fighting team. Steve is not sure when this became his life.
A/N: For [livejournal.com profile] flammablehat, who provides Tennyson when I am half expecting Lisa Frank. For the record, this is all her fault.

Might I ask what the Avengers are doing on British soil? )
lady_ragnell: (Default)
Title: go home, or make a home
Wordcount: ~7500
Summary: In a world where Derek lets Scott kill the Alpha and get the cure, he has to figure out how to rebuild his life, with help from Stiles.
A/N: So apparently I write Teen Wolf fic now? Anyway, this is based off of this prompt at the Teen Wolf kink meme, and the title is from Neil Gaiman's poem "Instructions."
Disclaimer: I do not own Teen Wolf.

You've already made your decision. )
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. )

So, I have been scattering comment fic and ficlets all over the internet recently and thought I should have a bit of a round-up repost below.

First, some ficlets I wrote for [livejournal.com profile] glomp_fest 's Glomp Gifts thing.

* )

*

I also wrote three little ficlets for the Three-Sentence Ficathon, all under the same cut for ease's sake, all PG.

* )

*

And finally, I seem to be getting into the habit of writing notfic at my Tumblr. I won't repost the text here (and probably won't mention them here after this, but I thought I'd let you know that it's a thing that is happening), but I will link you to the two I've written so far: Freya/Gwaine and Elena/Mithian (I seem to have fallen hard for this ship, you guys. Expect it to start popping up).

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 [livejournal.com 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: Belong to the Living
Wordcount: ~16,000
Warnings: past and minor character death, some canon-typical violence
Summary: A sorceress's spell brings Ygraine back from the dead with no memory of what's happened in the years between. | When the queen is brought back, all of Merlin's secrets start coming out.
A/N: Based on this prompt on the meme. Goes AU from the beginning of 2x08. Title from Joni Mitchell's "All I Want."
Disclaimer: I do not own Merlin.

Housekeeping Note: This journal is officially ON HIATUS until December for NaNoWriMo. Please PM me if there's a matter that needs my attention, I'll try to check in when I can.

Part One: Ygraine )

Part Two: Merlin
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. )
lady_ragnell: (Default)
Title: The Food of Love
Wordcount: ~1000
Summary: Merlin's mp3 player breaks. Set in the Drugstore Flowers 'verse.
A/N: Title is from Shakespeare, of course. The quote at the end of the fic is by Rabindranath Tagore, and I, like Arthur, Googled for it. This request-a-fic is for [livejournal.com profile] goddessriss, who wanted a two-year timestamp. Hope this satisfies.
Disclaimer: I do not own Merlin.

So much fluff. )
lady_ragnell: (Default)
Title: On Gossamer Wings
Wordcount: ~1100
Summary: Arthur and Merlin argue about when their anniversary actually is. Set in the Just One of Those Things 'verse.
A/N: For [livejournal.com profile] auntshoe, with hopes that you enjoy despite the lack of porn! Title once again from Cole Porter's "Just One of Those Things."
Disclaimer: I do not own Merlin.

Our anniversary is coming up. )
lady_ragnell: (Default)
Title: Going, Going, Gone
Wordcount: ~1800
Summary: Nimueh and Ygraine have one last moment before everything changes.
A/N: I have decided that Merlin needs more older generation fic. This is for [livejournal.com profile] non_island. Also, why is all my canon-era fic so depressing?
Disclaimer: I do not own Merlin.

lady_ragnell: (Default)
Title: Use Words Like Forever
Wordcount: ~1200
Summary: After the world is saved, Arthur and Merlin have to figure out what comes next. Set in the same 'verse as Till The End of Today.
A/N: Written for [livejournal.com profile] flossiepots (and [livejournal.com profile] daisy_chan ) who asked for Arthur and Merlin's date after the end of "Till the End of Today." Title from David Ford's "Song for the Road" again.
The other two request-a-fics are in progress.
Disclaimer: I do not own Merlin.

Title: Fix the Twist in You
Wordcount: ~2200
Summary: The longer Merlin's lies go on, the harder Arthur finds it to trust him.
A/N: Um, this one got long, so I am splitting it off into numbered points. Sorry, I know you are here for the fic, skip if you wish.
1. For this variation-of-a-prompt on the meme. I did not see what it was a variation of until too late, alas.
2. If you are looking for my usual Daily Dose Of Candyfloss ... this is not it. Just to warn you.
3. Title from "All the Same" by the Sick Puppies. And normally I do not talk about the music I take my titles from, but I have been looking for an excuse to use this title forever, because, Merlin fandom, we need to talk about this song and why there are not A MILLION Arthur-POV fanvids to it. Seriously, go listen to the song. Or just read the lyrics. It is unquestionably my Arthur-knows-about-Merlin's-magic theme song.
4. This came out of head-canon that I started playing with throughout s3 when I got pissed about Arthur and his throwing things and generally treating Merlin horribly (along with my long-held head-canon that Arthur has known about Merlin since s1, because HOW COULD HE NOT), and became characterization for an Epic Reincarnation Fic That I Do Not Have Time To Write. For the curious, "Like the Tide Pulls Me Under" comes from this same head-canon universe.
Disclaimer: I do not own Merlin.

So this is what Merlin looks like when he lies. )
lady_ragnell: (Default)
Title: Burn and Shine
Wordcount: ~2,500
Summary: Arthur pretends to be Merlin's boyfriend for a night, and they both learn far more than they bargained for.
A/N: For this prompt at the meme. Title is a song by The Elms. Expanded and edited more than usual, for those who already read it at the anon post. But anyway, here, have your daily dose of candyfloss. (Also, I just want to write All The Fics where Elena and Arthur are besties. There need to be more.)
Disclaimer: I do not own Merlin.

I seem to be on a quest to write every fandom cliche ever eventually. I am surprisingly okay with this. )
lady_ragnell: (Default)
Title: For the Weary
Wordcount: ~5,000
Summary: When Arthur becomes King, Merlin overworks himself.
A/N: Shock! Canon era! For this prompt on the kink meme, hurt/comfort, so preslash it sort of hurts a little. Tiny bit of implied Arthur/Gwen if you squint.

[livejournal.com profile] jusska_89 has done a Russian translation of this story, and you can read it here if Russian is your preferred language.

Disclaimer: I do not own Merlin.

I'm just trying to help. )
lady_ragnell: (Default)
Title: Like the Tide Pulls Me Under
Wordcount: ~2,000
Summary: It doesn't feel like a choice, going to Lancelot.
A/N: For this prompt on the kink meme, continuing my tradition of angsty season codas. Gwen catches a lot of flak in this fandom, and I wanted to give her some sympathy, though I tried hard not to make anyone a villain. Title from Josh Groban's "Love Only Knows."
Disclaimer: I do not own Merlin.

lady_ragnell: (Default)
Title: If That Wasn't Bad Enough
Wordcount: ~6,000w (what. I just. This 'verse makes me wordy, apparently.)
Summary: Gwaine may not have groceries telling him what to do, but he does have a story.
A/N: If you haven't already read A Metaphor of Human Bloody Existence (link goes to first part), this is not going to make sense to you, because it's Gwaine's POV of the Gwaine/Freya subplot that would not leave me alone (I am still not sure how it ended up in there, but they would not leave me alone, thus you get this). Title is from the same Pratchett quote "Metaphor"'s title came from.
Disclaimer: I do not own Merlin.

Gwaine is writing a theoretical travel guide. )
