Title: We Are All Diamonds
Author: loaded_march
Pairing: Arthur/Merlin, Gwen/Lance, Leon/Morgana
Rating: NC-17
Word count: 130k
Warnings/spoilers: Off-stage character death, angst, disability, discrimination
Summary: As the precocious heir of a diamond magnate and a famous designer, Arthur lived his entire life sheltered, protected, nurtured and spoiled. He always knew that he would have to step out from behind the scenes and into the limelight to run the family business some day, but he never expected that it would happen so soon or that he would encounter resistance from a board of directors who believe that his disability makes him unfit to lead. Merlin has stood on every stage in every city in the world, performing to critical acclaim, but after years of globetrotting, he's well and truly burnt out. He didn't quit -- he ran away from stardom, dropping to obscurity in the blink of an eye, forgotten, just another face in the crowd. He's aimless and without purpose until a friend asks him to fill in on a job. Neither Arthur nor Merlin are looking for salvation. They don't think there's any for them, that things are just too rotten, too far gone. But in the end, Arthur's quiet strength will be a balm to Merlin's broken soul, and it will be in Merlin's steadfast faith that Arthur finds courage.

{ STANDALONE ARTWORK }

Title: Sógh (Fanmix)
Artist: quaint_camera
Pairing: Arthur/Merlin
Rating: T
Warnings/spoilers: A little angsty, but not too bad
Summary: My writer, lawgoddess, dropped out. As a result, this mix doesn't cover ALL of the events in Sógh, but rather everything right up to >(highlight to read)*</i> Merlin's exile* I don't feel the mix is very effective as a standalone, so once she completes Sógh, I'll likely add tracks and update this post with a link to the story. But for now, happy listening!

Title: The Good Fight
Artist: suchaprince
Pairing: Arthur/Merlin (preslash)
Rating: No rating needed for the artwork (The fic it was made for is rated R though)
Warnings/spoilers: Some adult language in the lyrics
Summary: "Merlin knows better than anyone that he has to keep the magic secret. Magic users should be registered, with the penalty for not doing so harsh indeed, and thaumists are growing in influence. Tensions are high as the country is teetering on the brink of another Purge. Merlin has always said that violence is not the answer, but vigilante attacks from both sides, not to mention a string of grisly murders, suggest that no one is listening to him, let alone reading his blog. Cue spandex and talking statues and a whole lot of sexual tension with Arthur, son of the most bigoted thaumist around." (From hobnailedboots)
