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?)

 I've been re-reading (or, for some, reading) [livejournal.com profile] magog_83 's fics, which I read when I didn't have a rec list, and some of her work definitely deserve to be read!! Here's a Merlin/Arthur Modern AU... again.

A Story of Love and Menswear. Edited for Sap Clarity by Arthur Pendragon followed by An Extra, by [livejournal.com profile] magog_83 ; PG ; Two Parts ; 7895 words
A/S : Modern AU set in the menswear department of a large store (and shamelessly based on my own part time job at BHS during my A Levels where weekend menswear was always ridiculously quiet and staffed by a team of two). 17 year old Arthur is the Saturday supervisor on Menswear, and takes his job very seriously indeed. Merlin is the new boy who Arthur falls in love with at first sight. Emotional constipation ensues.
I actually picture the Arthur (and the Merlin) in this fic to be a bit older than 17, and I discovered they were supposed to be 17 just by copying the summary... Anyway... this is an Arthur's POV, and this is very delightful. Arthur is an emotionnal idiot, and oblivious, and, obviously, constipated, and Merlin is his usual adorable self. Morgana smirks a lot. I like how Merlin is the one who has to take all the initiatives even if Arthur is very involve in the relationship in his head. Sounds very Arthur-esque... And this is really a pleasure to read, some of the modifications made by Arthur being terribly adorable and funny.

 Hello there ! Another Merlin/Arthur Modern AU !

Fit for a Prince, by [livejournal.com profile] lisztful ; PG; One-Shot
A/S : Merlin is a rather hard to please high fashion designer, Arthur is his surprisingly patient and well-read model. Fashion babble and snark ensue, and maybe even love.
This is the kind of story that leaves you yearning for more. There's a bit of an interesting use of the situation, as Merlin is the designer and Arthur the model, and yet, you really find them in these characters. And the side Morgana/Gwen is utterly lovely... Special bonus point for Morgana's job, which fits her very nicely!
