Reveals Are Under The Cut!Collapse )

Week Five Round Up

Fic: Same, Same, But Different (Whatever We Are, We Are The Same Remix) for [profile] awyvern
(Merlin/Arthur – M – 7.7k)
Summary: Merlin has an older (half) brother Arthur, from his Dad's first marriage, but to be honest Merlin has always felt like more of an only child than anything. Arthur seems cool enough from what little he remembers, but hell, Arthur left for London when Merlin was like 6 and he only saw Arthur at important family functions. Then he left for the states and for years Merlin didn't even see him at all... It's not like they have a brotherly connection or anything.
Or Merlin's modern coming of age story that ends up taking a wild left turn when Merlin's absent (hot as fuck!) half-brother Arthur returns.

Art: The Holly King and The Oak King (The Alban Arthan and Alban Helfin Remix) for [personal profile] altocello
(Merlin/Arthur – T – Art)
Summary: The Holly King and the Oak King are the two halves that make up the circle of the year. Only one can rule thus the contest for supremacy continuously plays out as the seasons turn.
Merlin is the Holly King; he reigns during the darkest times, when the light wanes and there’s a chill in the air. The height of his power is during midwinter solstice but as the days stretch, Merlin gradually becomes weaker. At the Spring Equinox he must fight to maintain his Kingdom from Arthur, The Oak King, Merlin’s summer counterpart and adversary.
The fight is fierce but as the hours pass, the balance tips in Arthur’s favour and The Oak King finally triumphs. Arthur takes control and the days grow long and warm, he gains strength, reaching his peak by Midsummer solstice. As the nights draw in, Arthur’s hold slips and by the Autumn Equinox Merlin’s wounds have healed and he is ready to do battle where it's his turn to conquer.
Despite being adversaries, without one, the other would no longer be and one cannot truly hate what makes him whole. Nor can one be with the enemy he has learned to love. It is lonely being a king, except for the equinox. The equinox is when they can be together, equals for a short time until the perpetual cycle begins again.

Fic: Recurring Dream (The Waking Dream Remix) for Linorien
(Merlin/Arthur – G – 1.5k)
Summary: Three boys on holiday in Wales stumble upon an old ruined castle.

Fic: All I Want (The Make My Wish Come True Remix) for [profile] geekslave
(Merlin/Arthur – M – 3.9k)
Summary: It doesn’t happen often that Arthur takes Merlin to bed, but it’s happened enough times that it’s become a bad habit. And it's a habit that Merlin is finally trying to break.

Fic: Take Care (The Dart to the Heart Remix) for [personal profile] malu_3
(Arthur/Gwaine – PG – 2.5k)
Summary: Arthur and Gwaine take care of Merlin whilst in Jarl's captivity. Merlin only wishes they would take care of each other too.

Fic: Not Completely Useless (The [hopefully] Not Totally Horrible Remix) for [personal profile] kitty_fic
(Merlin/Arthur – M – 681)
Summary: Arthur’s new manservant just might have his uses after all.

Fic: It Meant Something (The "It Didn’t Mean Anything" Remix) for [profile] xfortytwo
(Merlin/Arthur – M – 24.7k)
Summary: Merlin only has to do two things; one, don't let Arthur know about the magic, and two, don't let Arthur find out about the massive inappropriate crush he has on him.

Oh yes, and also find out how to break the spell he accidentally cast on them leaving them stuck together 24/7, which makes the first two things so much harder to stick to.




THAT'S ALL FOLKS!

Thank you so much to everyone who took part, we had some amazing work!

Rating: Mature
Warnings: None
Notes: Dear Ingberry,

I can’t tell you how intimidated I was finding out that I was remixing for you! I remember reading your fics in awe back when I was an Anony Mouse over on AO3 when I first went in search of Merlin fanfic. I still owe you a lot of comments, which I shall be making once reveals are up.

It’s honestly an honour to remix one of your stories and I didn’t know where to start or how to live up to any of them. I was tempted to remix Dickmagician, because that’s my favourite fic of yours. But then I read ‘It Didn’t Mean Anything’ and started pondering how the idea might work in a canon context. This fic is the result of that. It’s not as good as you deserve, and I apologise for that. But I hope it’s at least passable. Thank you so much for sharing your stories with us!

Notes: Dear Kitty, surprise! I know you did not sign up for Remix this year, and this is a bit cheeky of me (if you are not happy just say and I will take it down) but you do so much for fandom that it just did not seem right that you didn’t get a remix of your own. I hope you like it.

Notes: Malu, I must have started at least twenty different fics prompted by your beautiful works! I wanted to write you an epic worthy of your prose but I hope you'll forgive this little deleted scene from your lovely Arthur/Gwaine fic instead. Thank you for the inspiration!

To the amazing mods who have been above and beyond patient with me, thank you for all your hard work running this wonderful fest <3

Notes: Dear Geekslave, when I first saw that I got you, I was very excited and knew almost immediately which fic I wanted to remix. I mean, I did check out your other fics, but I always came back to this one because I love it so much. Even if it’s set in canon times and I know you prefer modern AUs, I still hope you like it a lot. 
A thousand times thank you to the lovely mods for running this fest, and also thank you to my wonderful beta who shall remain nameless for now.
Summary: It doesn’t happen often that Arthur takes Merlin to bed, but it’s happened enough times that it’s become a bad habit. And it's a habit that Merlin is finally trying to break.

Pairings: Merlin/Arthur (pre-slash)
Length: 1441
Rating: PG
Warnings: n/a
Notes: Linorien, you have some wonderful fics and I had a great time reading through them, but something about the otherworldly, dreamlike quality of The Waking Dream just captured my heart. I have done a modern au, I like the idea that different versions of Merlin keep having this same dream, I hope it does not disappoint!
Thank you to C for the beta, you are brilliant and wonderful as always!

Title: Art: The Holly King and The Oak King (The Alban Arthan and Alban Helfin Remix)
Creator: lfb72
Work Type: Art
Work URL: https://archiveofourown.org/works/19733434
Remixee Name: altocello
Link to Work Remixed: https://archiveofourown.org/works/2775992
Pairings: Merlin / Arthur
Length: 0
Rating: Teen
Warnings: Art, traditional art, watercolours, kings, separation, two sides of the same coin, pining, summer solstice , winter solstice, holly king, oak king, folk law
Notes: It was such an honour to be asked to create art for Altocello. I regard her and her contemporaries as fandom royalty and I have enjoyed being in awe of her work for a long time.
Altocello had so many fabulous pieces to choose from but I was really captivated by Alban Arthan and Alban Helfin.
I enjoyed researching the druid story of the Oak King and the Holly King that inspired Altocello’s original piece. The whole concept of two sides was inspired and all the symbolism, nature and execution of it was perfect. I just loved the idea of Arthur and Merlin being sort of separated, since only one king can rule at a time and having to wait until the equinox to be briefly reunited and fight as equals. I wanted Arthur to seem warm and golden and embody summer whereas Merlin is the opposite, cool and crisp, representing winter – well, that was the plan.
Many thanks to my fandom friends who helped me and Altocello’s ‘go too person’, Amphigoury, who I consulted on creating this piece and who was incredibly supportive and enthusiastic about my venture.
Huge shout out to the mods for organising and running this wonderful fest.
