aftercamlann FIC: Just to Lose Control (Arthur/Merlin, NC-17)  
I haven't talked about it too much here, but I signed up this year for the Merlin aftercamlann big bang. I've had this Arthur/Merlin Modern AU fic idea in my head since last year, but it's not my primary fandom and I wasn't sure I'd ever actually finish it. But that's one of the reasons I love fests, because they give you deadlines and motivation! :D

This is the longest non-HP fic I've written, and I had a lot of fun playing with two very different characters. I've also been wanting to write a BDSM fic that goes beyond just some light D/s, and overall I'm really pleased with out it came out. Especially because I just *barely* squeaked in over the word count minimum... :D

I also got the most AMAZING artist, karovie! This was the first time anybody's ever created art based on something I've written, and it was a beyond cool experience. I totally lucked out, and it was great working with her. :D

Title: Just to Lose Control
Author: gracerene
Artist: karovie
Pairings/characters: Arthur/Merlin, non-explicit mentions of Merlin/Morgana, past Merlin/Will, background Gwen/Lance
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~25,000
Warnings: Modern AU, Non Magical AU, BDSM, D/s, Dom!arthur, sub!merlin, spanking, rimming, anal fingering, anal sex, blindfolds, light bondage, blow jobs, face-fucking, frottage, flogging, butt plugs, bottom!merlin, light praise!kink, past character death
Summary: Merlin may need to submit every once in awhile, but that doesn't mean he wants a relationship, and he certainly doesn't want to fall in love. Of course, he wasn't counting on Arthur.
Author's notes: I have been wanting to write a Merlin fic for a long time, and I'm so happy aftercamlann gave me the push I needed to follow through! Thanks to my beta lauren3210 for looking this fic over for me and providing me with wonderful feedback! And a million thanks to the lovely karovie for claiming my fic and creating some seriously amazing art to go with it. <3

Read on AO3

Gosh, I'm eager to read it. AU and BDSM? That's like Christmas came early this year, isn't it? It's already late, but yeah, I'll try to read it asap. :D

No huge rush though; don't forget to sleep! <3

There was this mosquito in our apartment whose bites really stung and woke me up early the second night in a row.

While I was waiting for it to appear again, I read you fic. It had a very tender atmosphere for a BDSM story and I loved it. :D

In the end I even got the little beast who was full to the brim with blood.

So, I might be a bit sleep deprived but had a succesful morning. :)))
