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.
