Summary:Canon AU
Captured at the lake of Avalon months ago and sold to the circus Merlin had been travelling throughout Albion until that day. When they enter the great hall of Camelot to entertain the prince on his 21st birthday he can sense something unexplainably familiar. Something reminding him of home. But it's not until he steps forward and lays eyes upon Arthur Pendragon that Merlin understands. He knows he has to escape, has to lure the prince to follow him. In order to return home forever he has to kill one last time. He's a siren after all.
Author's notes: Special Thanks to the_muppet for managing this all so wonderfully, to wassereis for her great art to go with the fic and to snickersnack for being my loyal beta!
Unfortunatly it’s still not finished. And LJ is fuckin’ with me right now, so I’ll upload more tomorrow and post the rest of the fic in the next days (hopefully). (OMG I’m so tired and wassereis is too and I give up now)
Artist's notes: I had a lot of fun drawing this. The story had a wonderful atmosphere, something I’ver never drawn before, and with Taya’s (hyunni27) critiquing and nagging, she pushed me out of my comfort zone and made me draw probably the best pics I’ve ever drawn.

Title: The Tournament
Artist: aaweth_edain
Pairings/characters: Gwaine/Merlin/Percival, Arthur/Gwen, Elyan/OFC, Leon/Lancelot/Mordred
Rating (if applicable): T with hints of M
Warnings: AU – Canon Divergences, Mad!Morgana, and attempts at wooing from two honorable men that are being stonewalled by their birth father, protective!King and protective!Warlock. Oh! And some fighting too but not gory or anything like that
Summary: Morgana was losing the fight against Camelot. In a desperate attempt, she enacted an old ritual: the Tournament which would reward one country with the Crown of Albion. The catch? There must be magic users that represent each country (something that makes Arthur very happy while Merlin is unaware that his secret it out). There is also time-traveling knights from the future (who may or not be the children of certain couples//trios) that will help Arthur win the crown. Meanwhile, Lancelot and Leon want to woo Mordred but are being stonewalled by Arthur (who deems himself a bit like an older brother to the young druid), Merlin (who has maternal instructs, thus enlisting the aid of his own lovers), and Mordred’s birth father.
Artist's notes: Well here is the art for this story. I typed the summary, warnings, pairings, and rating from the notes I had about the story. Sadly moon01234 had her computer crash, thus she lost about 20K of her story. She and Muppet kindly let me share the art. Moon will be posting her story, just not as part of this Big Bang. I look forward to you all reading it – it’s really good! Thank you the_muppet for hosting this challenge!

Summary: Enslaved by Kanen since childhood, Merlin has been raised to believe his collar is all that keeps him in check. That it is the line between the beast that bites and the dog that obeys…but either way, he's still an animal. Then one day Kanen's gang is ambushed and in the ensuing confusion, Merlin escapes and flees to Camelot where he attempts to start a new life. However, his old master isn’t about to let him go without a fight.

Author's notes:Please HEED the WARNINGS!! This fic contains a graphic depiction of rape and less graphic but still potentially disturbing descriptions of child abuse/molestation. Two scenes have been marked out so that they may be skipped by readers who find such content disturbing. Please refer to the notes in the chapter headings.

Cry Havoc was inspired by THIS prompt at KMM and is loosely based on the film "Unleashed"

I want to take the time to thank three incredible people, without whom this fic WOULD NOT exist, rocknvaughn Incomparable Super-Beta - She is the Peanut Butter to my Cheese-Cracker<3 - altocello Artist Extraordinaire who believed in me before I even had a plotbunny for this beast and who provided me with inspiration, insight, ideas and of course the most AMAZING FUCKING ART EVER! (And the story title!) And amphigoury Cheerleader Supreme who provided me with the prompt, goaded me into writing this story bigger, bolder and that-much-more graphic whenever I was feeling timid and who read along from the beginning providing wonderful insight and an amazing sounding board whenever I was stuck.

To the entire PL Chat Gang, thanks for your support, friendship, laughter, and conversation. I LOVE YOU GUYS!

My heartfelt thanks and congratulations to the_muppet for FOUR YEARS of the Most Amazing BigBang hosted on LiveJournal!! Thank you so much for your unconditional support and unfailing patience with not only me and everyone else who participated in this challenge. You are the most wonderful person and I feel privileged just to walk the surface of the same planet you do <3
