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.

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...

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.

 OK, I'm doing some infidelities but not quite. It's a Arthur/Percival Modern AU with Arthur/Merlin Canon Era... Yeah right...

Layer Cake, by [livejournal.com profile] cyus ; PG ; One-Shot ; 3600 words
A/S : Life's about cake and choices even when destiny peek-a-boos at a school fair.
It's a reincarnation fic wherein Arthur and Percival are a couple, and Arthur "recognizes" Merlin at the school fair of their (Percival and Arthur's) daughter. It's both fluffy (the Arthur/Percival kind of thing) and painful because the situation between Merlin and Arthur is awkward, and full of memories that don't really belong to them. This is a very beautiful fic, and Percival is wonderful in his love and his trust of Arthur, no matter what.
