Surfacing from my congestion-related misery to bring two recs.

Subject (To) by frostfire_17 - *takes a deep breath* Merlin/Uther, no, breathe okay and just try it. It's uncomfortable and haunting and sad and beautifully written and kind of made me hurt for Merlin and hurt for Uther, too.

Drawing Back the Curtain by shinetheway - Morgana/Arthur/Merlin, Arthur/Merlin, Morgana/Gwen, not sad and lovely, lovely, lovely. And you know, guh.

Right then. I am looking forward to the day I can both breathe through my nose and stay awake for more than two hours at a time. However, I just saw bookshop is in the middle of reading syllic"s story Three Tasks, which, like raphaela667's I'll Be the Platform Shoes is my comfortfic of comfortfic, so going to re-read both now and drown the horror that is my nose in lilac robes and how Merlin never wanted to be in a romantic comedy, even though he was.

Go with God and decongestants, y'all.

(I really need to create a rec page for this. Maybe this week. Unless I get reinspired on the "Arthur Takes a Road Trip to Rome and Discovers Eyeliner" in which I could achieve both historical inaccuracy and satisfy a kink regarding Roman baths.)

Nghh. You can't say things like that and then go to sleep, that's plain mean ;D

I am working on it, I swear. I even finished the (surprisingly long) story set *before* it.

Oh that is, yes, that is very good. *nods* We can wait. *twitches* Yes. :D

[implodes quietly]

WANT.

Thank you so much for the recs...

*hands you a tissue* Get better soon *g*

Re: Thank you so much for the recs...

Thank you!

Should I be nagging you about the Rome fic? Cuz I can do that. I can SO nag. ;)

Will do (assuming travel doesn't take me totally offline). ;)

Life is hard in Merlin. So much pretty and so much destiny and two sides of the same coin. Which is totally dragonspeak for buttseks.

must make more icons.

stupid yentil dragon.

You. You are hilarious. The number of people I see on my flist posting fic with the header "seperis made me do it."

Why do I not also have minions leaping to bring me fic in my illness? For lo, I am also afflicted! *sniffle*

TWO. TWO PEOPLE. And one was totally not my fault because there was a lot of plants involved and chocolate!

I love my flist. A lot.

Oh that Merlin/Uther one was GOOD. Thanks for that rec.

I think Merlin somehow got its hands on my soul. Because I was never into AU fic until I got into this fucking fandom!

(I feel a little guilty because you asked for recs to take your mind off icky sickness, and yet you're doing all the reccing and I'm just gobbling it up and being useless.)

*eyes you suspiciously* I'm going to go read the Merlin/Uther fic. This is because I've been enjoying your recs so far. HOWEVER, If I end up with trauma, I will blame you. :P

Oh, it's traumatizing, but it's lovely and achingly intense for all that. It's a trauma to be proud of.

That Merlin/Uther! I so wanted to read this pairing and that was sooo good and exactly what I was hoping to find! Thanks for the rec. :)
