MASTERPOST


Title: Timshel
Rating: PG-13 for sexual content and language
Word Count: 34,435
Fandom: Merlin
Pairings/characters: Arthur/Merlin (Gwen/Lance, Morgana, Leon, Uther)
Warnings: None
Summary: Merlin is definitely supposed to work for Arthur, but spends most of his time mocking Arthur's dress sense, berating him via IM with Morgana, sending Gwen capslock-filled emails about him and, most of all, trying not to fall in love with the shiny-shoed ponce. Arthur, meanwhile, is definitely supposed to be taking over his father's company some day, but instead spends most of his time scowling at Merlin, making lists about him, trying to find excuses to fire him and, most of all, trying to pretend he is totally not head-over-heels for the jumped up little upstart. Someone's got to make some difficult choices eventually, and this can only lead to one thing: angst. Or hilarity. Or, embarrassingly enough, self-discovery.
Author's notes: Title taken from the Mumford & Sons song of the same name. An explanation of the term can be found here. Acknowledgements and thanks to my wonderful betas and cheerleader can be found here. And a huge, huge thank you to my wonderful artist arithilim -- I was so over-the-moon with excitement when she chose to work with me, and I'm even more excited to see what she's come up with.
Soundtrack: Available here.
Download of full document: Available here (Microsoft Word format).
Disclaimer: Merlin, Arthur and the other characters herein do not belong to me, more's the pity. If they did, Saturday teatimes on the BBC would be even more full of homoerotic longing and UST than they already are.
