I never watch fanvids. Like... never. It took four different persons on my flist to rec this before I went to see it... And guess what? I'm reccing it too! Arthur/Merlin Fanvid for you:

500 Miles, by [livejournal.com profile] suchaprince ; PG ; Music: 500 Miles covered by Alexander Rybak ; 3:36
This is some kind of amazingly true amazing vid about Arthur and Merlin's relationship. It can be taken as gen (as much as the show can be considered gen) or slashy depending on where your heart lays, but I think any fan of Merlin can appreciate it. The music is great (even if I'm not used to the cover) and the editing wonderful.

And now another one, a Arthur/Merlin Canon Era this time. I'm now a sucker for Ygraine!fics.... Any recs?

Belong To The Living, by [livejournal.com profile] lady_ragnell ; PG ; Two Parts ; 16k words
A/S: 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.
As you may know if you read some of my recs, I absolutely love [livejournal.com profile] lady_ragnell's works. And this one is no exception. It's about what Ygraine would think of what happened during the twenty first years of Arthur's life, while she was away, how she can change things after she came back, and how it'd affect everyone and everything. It's a wonderful story.

Actually I'm writing two posts at the same time. One is an update of my travel, the other one is this rec. This is a fic I read a long time ago, and for some reason I stumbled on it today and remembered how much I loved it. I'm in a Canon Era mood, lately, so you can expect more of those... It's a Merlin/Arthur Canon Era, then:

Forsaking All Others, by [livejournal.com profile] magog_83 ; PG ; One-Shot ; 5894 words
A/S : Merlin goes home to Ealdor for two weeks and Arthur is not at all bothered by this. No really, he isn’t. Assumes kind of established relationship (as in, Arthur’s about to find out just how established it is).
This fic is Arthur-centric and wonderfully so. It tells us how besotted he is and how oblivious he insists to be about that, and how all the castle is aware of this. And there's an onion. All in all this is an incredibly endearing fic, with a very convincing Arthur and you end up with a big grin on your face. It can mend your heart even if it does't need mending...

I know I ought to do a post about what's happening to me (I intend to do one, I really do!!) but I'm now in the middle of my lunch break and I just read a very very beautiful fic, and I felt the urge to rec it... So here's a Arthur/Merlin Canon Era AU for you:

Unraveled, by [livejournal.com profile] glimmergirl ; PG ; One-Shot ; 3900 words
A/S: A month into their tour of the kingdom, Merlin fell ill. (There's no author's summary just a few indications: "age difference (18/35), student/teacher, pre-modern fantasy/magic au; illness h/c")
This fic is a bit difficult to talk about. The world is different, a lot of things are, but it's strong and beautiful and amazing. Merlin is like an older version of himself, what he would have become if he was older, and met Arthur later. There's no explicit slash in this story, but it isn't gen either, because there are so many feelings. We follow Arthur's POV, and it's amazing because even though he's 18, he's still the prince, and then has a certain education. All in all, this could almost be read as an Original, except that knowing the characters, their looks and everything is making the story even richer.
