It's of these recs I'm surprised not to find in my rec list every time I look at it, and then I don't rec it because I'm doing something or any oter bad reason. It's been camping in my REC folder for ages. It's a Arthur/Merlin Modern AU - Harry Potter Crossover.

Meeting the Minister, followed by A Ministerial Appointment, followed by Prime Minister's Questions, followed by A Typical Day at the Ministry, followed by Minister Merlin's Fail Safe Chat-Up Line, followed by A Ministerial Scandal, followed by Minister Merlin discovers the Joy of Text, by [livejournal.com profile] magog_83 ; PG ; 8 Parts so far ; around 22k words overall
A/S:  Written for this brilliant prompt on [livejournal.com profile] kinkme_merlinThe new Muggle Prime Minister meets the Minister for Magic.
In a way, I think that all the titles and the summary are comments enough to let you guess what this is all about. This is a wonderful wonderful piece of silliness and fluff. Merlin is adorable and clumsy and very ignorant of Muggles ways and still very powerful and I pity Hermione for having to deal with his antics! Arthur is uptight and serious and not-so-secretly head over hell his magical counterpart (you can excuse him, Merlin has the most adorable wooing techniques!). This fill is amazing and makes you laugh a smile and it's perfect for good and bad days.

Here's the come-back of a fic I recced a while a go and I won't stop reccing. It's Merlin/Arthur Modern AU and there's a new sequel \o/

No Business Like Show Business by [livejournal.com profile] lady_ragnell  ; PG-13 ; One-Shot
A/S : In which Merlin is promoted from production intern to talent, is easily mortified, and has Post-It arguments with Arthur while the art department watches in glee. Also, there are gay dragons.
A wonderful, wonderful fic, where Merlin and Arthur are the voices of cartoon characters for a popular (gay friendly) tv show. This is a whole lot of fun. And there's also a sequel No People Like Show People where they discover fanfictions and fanarts, and this is really great !
Edit (Oct. 2011): There's new a new sequel: Get That Happy Felling
Edit 2 (Nov. 2011): another sequel has been added! It's called Stealing That Extra Bow and it's maybe the cutest part of this verse (is that possible?)

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.

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.

For a moment, I thought I wouldn't post a rec again, because some people in fandom are disgusting me, and I didn't want anything to do with them. But who would I be if I stopped doing what I like to do and sharing what I love because some people have nothing better to do with their lives than telling anonymous hate over people's back? Beside, even if they feel so powerful, they are a very small minority. Mostly, fandom is about love, and let's not forget that.

I know I'm not nearly done with my [livejournal.com profile] paperlegends reading, but I saw today that someone made a reel fic over The King's Speech, which is a movie I love, and I couldn't not read it. It's a Arthur/Merlin Modern Au (or maybe Historical?)

The Prince's Speech, by [livejournal.com profile] a8c_sock ; PG ; Four Parts ; 37k words
A/S : Arthur is the Crown Prince of Camelot, he has just one problem, his speech. When his father takes ill he finds he must either find his voice or risk losing the throne. Can unconventional speech therapist Merlin Emerson help the Prince speak? And what happens when the Prince falls in love with the man who has helped him find his voice?
I loved the movie so much, I couldn't not read this. And I was not disappointed. It starts like the movie, awesome as it is, and then, slowly, the author's choices, and the show's characteristic (especially Merlin's characterization, which is breathtaking in this fic) are taking over, and things diverty from the movie... But the important bits are here (including the famous speech, which makes me very emotionnal, because it's a beautiful speech)... and then it goes further the movies timeline, because Arthur and Merlin are in love, and that requires some talk, right? The ending is beautiful, and I'll leave you to discover it by yourself.

OK so I'm trying to write this rec despite the Rich Text Editor being all weird (ok... when I started this post it was weird, now it doesn't work anymore). This is a Merlin/Arthur Modern AU written for [livejournal.com profile] paperlegends !

What You Mean to Me (Right Now), by [livejournal.com profile] wanderhomeagain ; NC-17 ; Five Parts ; 37k words
A/S : When Arthur Pendragon lost his leg his leg below the knee after an auto accident three years ago, he shut everyone out. Now with the help of his sister, some meddling kids friends, and a bastard of an ex-boyfriend who has the temerity to get off with someone else, Arthur begins to learn that he can let himself enjoy life in the company of others, especially the new pharmacist Gwen sent him to see.
This fic includes a lot of subject that are very close to my heart. The story is Arthur-centered, and it's great because it's not only about his relationship with Merlin, but also with every and any one of his friends. It deals pretty interestingly with how to bare a loss (of any kind), and how people tend to shut themselves from the other in such situations, and it only makes them more miserable. (from my experience, this is actually true of most "bad times", even with no loss attached). This is a story that takes you in and to a party of the universe you don't necessarely know about, and this is a wonderful, interesting, well written journey.
