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: These Are The Voyages
Wordcount: ~11,500
Summary: The Avalon isn’t the Starfleet flagship, or really anything close to it. It isn’t large, or prestigious, or even particularly new. It’s not anything, really, except for Mithian’s first command, and Mithian loves it. Or, the AU where all the Merlin ladies (and George) are the senior staff of a Starfleet ship.
A/N: There are some notes about all the Trek things (but I hope it is accessible to those who just want a space AU!) over at the fic, but they are a little wordy, so I won't repost them all here.
Disclaimer: I do not own Merlin.

I'm young for a captain.

Title: Hear Their Clockwork Hearts Work
Wordcount: ~1600
Warnings: non-graphic violence and off-screen minor character death, certainly less blood than canon
Summary: Ragnar finds an interesting treasure while raiding the airship Lindisfarne.
A/N: Dipping my toes into a new fandom, and filling the "au: steampunk" square on my Trope Bingo card while I'm at it! This is a re-working of the Lindisfarne raid with bonus Lagertha and airships, basically. Not tagging it so as not to get anyone's hopes up for kisses/porn, but it is pre-Athelstan/Lagertha/Ragnar. Title from "Robot Ponies" by Laura Barrett, because I have been looking for an excuse to use this line for a steampunk story for ages.
Disclaimer: I do not own Vikings.

Lagertha is the first to jump across the gap. )
lady_ragnell: (roses)
Title: Here to Hold on To
Wordcount: ~14,800
Warnings: minor character death, hospitals/illness (specifically Erica's epilepsy), mentions of bullying and miserable high school experience (also due to Erica's epilepsy, nothing more explicit than in canon), minor bloodplay towards the end. There's no sex, but Laura is very aware nonetheless of Erica's age.
Summary: A chance meeting in the hospital the morning after Laura kills Peter leaves Laura with a telepathic connection to a teenager she'd never met before--one who, after she finds out about werewolves, wants the bite.
A/N: Written for the "telepathy" square on my Trope Bingo card, and for Femslash February. Title from "City," by Sara Bareilles. Also, who is in the least bit surprised that my longest Teen Wolf fic to date is extremely rarepair femslash?
Disclaimer: I do not own Teen Wolf.

Read it here on the AO3.
lady_ragnell: (roses)
Title: The Future is Ours
Wordcount: ~3,300
Warnings: canon character death (in an alternate universe), references to half-sibling incest
Summary: Morgana wakes, and it's all been a dream.
A/N: I have wanted this fic to exist for a long time (even if by all rights it deserves Big Bang treatment), so I thought I would do it as the last part of my post-finale fics. It isn't a headcanon so much as it is basically a big screw-you to destiny the way the show does it, with bonus pre-OT4 added in.
Disclaimer: I do not own Merlin.

No one mourns the death of Morgana Pendragon. )
lady_ragnell: (Default)
Title: Scrubbing Out the Stains
Wordcount: ~3,500
Warnings: 5x13 spoilers, in case anyone has not yet seen: this is an afterlife fic, thus this fic comes with warnings for major character death and grief It's mostly gen but pairings include past Arthur/Gwen and Merlin/Freya and some Arthur/Merlin if you squint
Summary: Arthur wakes on the isle of Avalon, where he learns from its lady about his past and future.
A/N: The Arthur-POV fic for the four post-canon fics I'm writing (which are not necessarily congruent, for those who may be confused or not wanting to pick up a series in the middle). A lot of it comes from my life for Arthur&Freya in fics. Title is from Regina Spektor's "Open."
Disclaimer: I do not own Merlin.

People want to see you, but you must be well first. )
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

Title: These Days of Dust
Wordcount: ~1500
Warnings: major character death, 5x13 spoilers: This is a reincarnation fic that deals both with Merlin's grief at Arthur's loss and, due to the nature of it, Merlin's repeated death. Only one is explicit at all (brief violence).
Summary: Merlin waits through lifetimes.
A/N: The second fic in the vaguely connected series I started last night (the others will happen in the new year). Title from Mumford and Sons, "I Will Wait." This is very compressed headcanon from a much longer reincarnation fic I may someday write, because I tend to like reincarnation more than immortality and wanted to work out how that might still comply with the given canon.
Disclaimer: I do not own Merlin.

He always comes back. )
lady_ragnell: (Default)
Title: Once Upon a Time
Wordcount: ~1800
Summary: Stiles doesn't know what his story is, but he knows he's in one. (Or: five fairy tales Stiles isn't the hero of, and one he might be.)
A/N: Because as much as I love Little Red Riding Hood, I have a lot of feelings about fairy tales and I couldn't go forever without playing with them in Teen Wolf. Also, a lot of this might be an excuse for the last line. Despite the pairing tag, it is mostly gen.
Disclaimer: I do not own Teen Wolf.

Everyone always forgets Scott was the first one to wear a red hoodie. )

Sorry it's been a while, everyone! I've been working on a few things and busy with life, but I'm signed up for Merlin Holidays so I'm doing that, and there's a few other Merlin (and Teen Wolf) fics that I've got in my head that I can hopefully get around to now that I finished my Avengers fic.

Speaking of! An Assembly Such as This, my Avengers Regency romance novel (with cisf!Tony, Bruce, and Fury) is completed as of about ten minutes ago, coming in around 39,000 words. So if you have been wanting to read but are leery of WIPs, now is the time.

Also, realized the other day that I never announced it here when I posted my entries from the Merlin Summer Pornathon, so the series on AO3 is here. It's a variety of pairings and tones, all NSFW, and I had bunches of fun writing most of them so I hope you enjoy.

Lastly, I wrote a gen Teen Wolf fic last week (at the moment, I'm not posting the text of any Teen Wolf fics I write on this journal and just linking to the AO3 because I assume that most people who have me friended here are here for Merlin. If that's not the case, let me know, I have no problem posting full text over here as well!), Stiles-centric, lots of angst (what is this fandom doing to me?).

Hope you all enjoy, and I hope to have some fic for you all soon!

I am once again taking part in the [ profile] summerpornathon. I do plan to post all my fics up here at the end of the summer like I did last year, but in the meantime I'm posting them week-by-week on the AO3. The first one is Freya/Gwaine, for the picture prompt challenge, and you can find it here.

And, for those of you in Avengers fandom, I have started a WIP over on the AO3, pre-Steve/Tony Regency AU with ... I'll just copy-paste the summary, shall I?: "In which Miss Antonia Stark finds herself sponsor and mentor of Miss Lucy Banner at the behest of the Fury, meets a mysterious American officer, and the fortunes of the brothers Odinson are discussed extensively." And that particular fic you can find here.
lady_ragnell: (Default)
Forgot to let you all know about this one! I participated in the rarewomen fic exchange, which went up on Monday, a celebration of various women not often written about in various fandoms, both large and small. The link to the collection (where there are some really awesome fics, I encourage you to go play around) is here.

I won't repost the text of the fic here, since I don't think most of you are here for rare character Inception gen! But I will link you the fic.

Fandom: Inception
Title: A Dream You Dream Together is Reality
Warnings: references to euthanasia, brief appearances of death in dreams as well as serious crimes committed in dreams (including torture, but none of it explicitly discussed or described), Mal-was-right AU
Summary: Phillipa Cobb grows up knowing that she’s not the only daughter her parents have with her name, and that only her mother knew which one was real. It’s not a nice thing to know.
A/N: Written for vennefic. Title is from a quote by Yoko Ono.

The fic is here on the AO3.
lady_ragnell: (Default)
Title: From This Day On
Wordcount: ~19,000 words
Summary: While on a hike, Merlin and Gwaine stumble upon the Lost City of Camelot, cursed to wake up every morning a century in the future, and Merlin decides it's his duty to break the spell--with help from a prince, an imprisoned seer, and quite a few others. A Brigadoon AU.
Warnings: minor character death, imprisonment, and a bit of violence, no worse than in canon.
A/N: Because every fandom needs a Brigadoon AU, right? Title is from the show.
Disclaimer: I do not own Merlin.

Part One )

Part Two
lady_ragnell: (Default)
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: 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: Plans For You and Me
Wordcount: ~6,700
Warnings: intoxication, fluff, girls having feelings
Summary: Elena wakes up in Gretna Green, hung over and married to her best friend. This is not how their post-grad road trip was supposed to go.
A/N: This started out as part of the "Weddings" bonus challenge for [ profile] summerpornathon and I finally made it into a proper fic. The title is from "The Minnow and the Trout," by the band A Fine Frenzy. Third fic posted in under a week, good heavens. I think I need a little break.
Disclaimer: I do not own Merlin.

Elena wakes up with a hangover and a wedding ring, abandoned on a hotel bed in Gretna Green, with Morgana hissing into her mobile in the bathroom. )
lady_ragnell: (Default)
Title: made of dreams and bones
Wordcount: ~7,500
Warnings: series 4 character spoiler, canon-typical violence, canon-compliant minor character death. Merlin is 14 when the fic starts, but absolutely nothing romantic happens until he is well over age.
Summary: Arthur would have starved that first winter, if it weren’t for Hunith and her son. When Arthur is disinherited, he finds himself farming in Ealdor.
A/N: For this prompt on the meme. Title from Dave Mallett's "Garden Song" (which, yes, is the "inch by inch, row by row" one if you are curious). This one sort of wrote itself while I was taking a break writing the Nimueh/Ygraine fic, and I ended up really enjoying it.
Disclaimer: I do not own Merlin.

Spring brought news from Camelot. )
lady_ragnell: (Default)
Title: Let Myself Fall
Wordcount: ~20,000
Summary: Nimueh meets an old friend, Ygraine, at the hospital where she's doing her foundation year, and finds herself wrapped up in her life and trying not to fall in love with her when she's already married to someone else.
Content Notices: So much fluff, language, pregnancy, mentions of infidelity, even more fluff.
A/N: So, this happened? I've had the idea for a while, it was meant to be for [ profile] non_island 's birthday, but now it is several months later. It can be hers anyway, though. Anyway, I hope you will give this a chance even though it isn't A/M, I am quite fond of it. And if you know of anywhere I should be pimping it, let me know!
Disclaimer: I do not own Merlin.

Part One )

Part Two
lady_ragnell: (Default)
Title: Simple Math
Wordcount: ~4,500
Summary: After Gwen and Lancelot leave, Arthur and Merlin learn to take care of each other. Sequel to For the Weary.
A/N: The last request-a-fic of this round, for [ profile] _aurum, with apologies for it taking so long! This turned into a sequel rather than a timestamp, as I have been meaning to write it for ages. Title is by Manchester Orchestra.
Disclaimer: I do not own Merlin.

Arthur looks up from his papers in the evening to find Merlin folding his laundry. )
lady_ragnell: (Default)
Title: Fallen Quite Hard Over You
Wordcount: ~1600
Summary: Arthur and Merlin, the morning of a royal wedding. From the Possibly Maybe I'm Falling For You 'verse.
A/N: This one is for [ profile] helena_star. I've had the vague idea for this fic around for ages (since the royal wedding comment fest ages ago, in fact, but since Possibly Maybe wasn't even posted then ...), so I have been very glad for an opportunity to write it. Title once again from Landon Pigg's "Falling in Love at a Coffee Shop."
Disclaimer: I do not own Merlin.

If she tells me to lay back and think of England, I'm going to have to punch her. )
