May Merlin Recs  
I was still in quite the Merlin mood at the beginning of the month, so here are some of my favorite recent reads. I'm FOR REALZ going to be starting the final Merlin season when I get back from India, so I'm sure I'll be binge reading more Merlin fic soon! :D

Title: A Lot Like Life
Author: shinybug | favicon Shinybug
Pairing: Arthur/Merlin
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 7,399
Content/Warnings: bottom!merlin, first time
Summary: Arthur tugged sharply on Merlin's neck and leaned forward to growl in his ear. "Fine. If you want to serve me so badly, then I'll teach you what that means."
Blazing hot fic.

Title: The Isle of Mora
Author: favicon Ceebee
Pairing: Arthur/Merlin, background Gwen/Morgana
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 53,739
Content/Warnings: arthur finds out, intercrural sex, memory loss, rimming, felching, bottom!merlin, paper legends fest 2013
Summary: When Arthur and Merlin go on a trip to the mysterious Isle of Mora, the best case scenario would be that Merlin summons up the courage to finally tell Arthur how he feels about him, they have amazing sex, and enjoy the scenery. The worst case would be that Merlin gets magnificently sunburnt, accidentally reveals his magic, is almost sacrificed to the Gods of the Isle, loses his memory, and finds himself on the run with an Arthur who is struggling to come to terms with Merlin's betrayal and the idea that magic is not all he was taught it was. This story is a combination of both scenarios.
Really interesting fic with good!Morgana and Morderd and a fascinating trip to a darkly magical island. I like the creepiness of the island culture, and the connection between Arthur and Merlin was wonderful.

Title: Sharing
Author: scribblemoose | favicon scribblemoose
Pairing: Arthur/Merlin/Lancelot
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 1,245
Content/Warnings: threesome, bottom!merlin, spit-roasting, face-fucking
Summary: Inspired by the re-squee of Episode 1.05: Lancelot. A missing scene or two between the party and the morning after.
Smoking hot threesome fic!

Title: Wait
Author: eldee_fic | favicon eldee
Pairing: Arthur/Merlin
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 10,094
Content/Warnings: AU: Modern, AU: Non-Magical, established relationship, BDSM, D/s, dom!arthur, sub!merlin, implied bottom!merlin, sex toys, bondage
Summary: It’s been a couple of weeks since Merlin and Arthur have had the chance to get together for a night of play.
Sexy D/s fic with some feels thrown in for good measure!

Title: Paint the World Orange and Blue
Author: favicon ingberry
Pairing: Arthur/Merlin
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 17,372
Content/Warnings: AU: Modern, AU: Non-Magical, artist!merlin, bottom!merlin, implied switching
Summary: Armed with pen, paper and mugs of tea, Merlin created a relatively successful series of graphic novels. Armed with determination, sarcasm and more tea, he signs a deal with Pendragon Pictures to turn his first novel into a film. Merlin's relationship with Arthur Pendragon starts with TWO (2) slammed doors and ONE (1) severely bruised ego, but that's not at all how it ends.
Oh this is such a lovely and wonderful read! I adored their characterizations here, and I thought it was really fun seeing how the other characters were incorporated. Plus, the sex was playful and super freaking hot!

Title: The Victory of Shadows
Author: scribblemoose | favicon scribblemoose
Pairing: Arthur/Merlin, background Gwen/Morgana, Morgana/Morgause
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 41,314
Content/Warnings: AU: Modern, AU: Reincarnation, bottom!merlin
Summary: Merlin is an ordinary young man with extraordinary magic, who is just finishing his first year reading ancient history at Cambridge when he gets dragged away from his books and falls for the Captain of a rowing team. But history can be full of surprises.
Fabulous fic with a really wonderful and fresh take on the reincarnation trope!
