Title: Forever Love (The Round Table Remix)
Author: hopenight
Artist: thisissirius
Pairing: Emerson (Merlin)/Arthur, Galahad/Gawain
Rating: R
Word count: 24,067
Warnings/spoilers: language, some crossdressing, language, mentions of sex, lots of alcohol consumption, and a heavy dose of crack
Summary: This is your typical, run-of-the-mill, totally average reincarnation (immortality included!) story…except it’s not. Arthur is immortal with a time limit hanging over his head. M. Emerson Gray is the latest rebirth without a clue. Except Emerson does have a clue, eccentricities, and a kickass store. Merlin is trapped in mirrors and remains very sarcastic. Lawrence is totally awesome but gets kidnapped. Galahad is having number-gasms. The knights get plastered and bemoaned the long lost days when they didn’t have to meddle in homoerotic love affairs. And Arthur? Arthur is just socially awkward and adorable. This is the story of two men falling in love while knowing the truth about the other (even if the other doesn’t know they know). The question is can they do it in the midst of craziness, crossdressing, and colossal insecurities? Well yes, they can. But the ride to the beginning of it all is heaps better than the story of the relationship itself.

Title: Gramarye
Author: lisztful
Artist: chosenfire28
Pairing: Merlin/Arthur, Gwen/Lancelot, Morgana/Morgause, Leon/OMC
Rating: NC-17
Word count: 48k
Warnings/spoilers: Incest if you think Morgana and Morgause are related. Some violence. Angst.
Summary: In the wake of the dragon's escape, Morgana is missing and Uther is running Arthur and his knights ragged with fruitless searching. As the hunt continues, Merlin must come to terms with his growing feelings for Arthur, his discomfort at the way Arthur throws himself into danger in order to prove himself to his father, and his suspicion that Morgause may not be as evil as he'd once thought. Just as things begin to fall into place, a revelation about Gwen's past throws the court into turmoil, causing Uther's rage to spiral out of control. Finally, prompted by the return of Mordred, Merlin and Arthur must choose between Uther's Camelot and the people they love, perhaps including each other.

Author: nahara
Artist: nachte
Pairing: Merlin/Arthur
Rating: R
Word count: 40k
Warnings/spoilers: Sex and language
Summary: Merlin is a mild-mannered greengrocer with a passion for in season fruits and vegetables (and a love for musical theatre that he doesn't exactly advertise).

Lots of misunderstandings and UST as the boys bond over frankenstrawberries, a Morris Minor named Karl and dragon fruit.

Word count: 103,900
Warnings/spoilers:(highlight to read) Descriptions of terminal illness; a little violence
Summary: Inspired by Nodame Cantabile. Arthur is a world class violinist, trapped in Sydney, Australia, by his fear of flying. In the wake of a mediocre concert, vicious critics and with barely a month to go before his next (hopefully reputation-saving) recital, Arthur is almost at breaking point. When his accompanist, Morgana, breaks her wrist in a car accident, Arthur is more or less doomed. And the story begins, when the Maestro at the conservatoire, Gaius Stresemann, recommends his protege Merlin Emrys to step in. Merlin, who plays by ear, as he pleases and really just wants to be a kindergarten teacher.
