Just a quick note to let you know:
FICS: this tag can be found in the sidebar. It’ a tag that allows you to browse ONLY the fic recs made by ME—not the ‘recs from you’ post, the asks, the announcements, or even the lists. Only the fics.
TUMBLR APP USERS: for those of you browsing the blog on their phone/tablet/with the tumblr app, I was informed that it’s not possible to see the sidebar on it, therefore there’s now a link to the TAGS in the description of the blog which should give you access to the tags and index now.
THINGS YOU CAN BLACKLIST:
TAGS & INDEX: of course the best place to try and find the kind of fic you’re looking for (hopefully)
Pretty sure it’s:
The Lonely King, by corilannam
The Prince of Wales at his school. Merlin was sure it was all just a very bad joke. A modern royalty AU.
It’s really good. I absolutely loved it.
Look, I’m going to take this opportunity to make something clear: There will be no kink shaming on this blog. Ever. Are there kinks that I don’t get/like? Yes. Does that mean they’re bad/wrong? NO. NEVER.
So you don’t like/get a kink? Then don’t read it. Simple as that. There’s no need for any condescending ‘ew’. You could even look it up and try to understand it, instead of being a judgemental ass.
FICTION is there to explore ideas and concepts. It’s a limitless universe that we build for ourselves and not everything is going to please you and that’s okay, that’s even good. Are there problematic things that can/need to be discussed and explored in the way they are used and represented in fiction? Well yes, of course. But there’s no need to shame people for liking the things they like, especially in fictional universes, and when it comes to relationships, dynamics, and sexual preferences/desires etc.
So. Whether you like age difference, student/teacher dynamics, mpreg, slave fics, D/s dynamics, BDSM, whipping, torture, rimming, felching, spanking, figging, finger-fucking, marking, tattoos, anal sex, oral sex, breath play, come play, blood play, knife play, orgasm denial, forced marriages, genderbending, nipple play, medical kinks, voyeurism, exhibitionism, crossdressing, noncon, dubcon, sex pollen, pony play, role play, humiliation, frottage, fisting, fetishes, daddy kinks, etc. etc. etc. let me repeat this:
THERE. WILL. BE. NO. KINK. SHAMING. ON. THIS. BLOG.
kink shaming is bad.
There also won’t be any pairing shaming, or fandom shaming. It is also bad.
(note: I think anon should also be aware that male pregnancy does happen in real life, not just in fiction, and that it isn’t, in fact, gross.)
For those interested: huge list of kinks, tropes, and clichés in fanfic this way.
Here are some fics that were submitted, and reccomended by followers. Enjoy!

I haven’t recced this fic on the blog because I haven’t read it yet (though it might have been part of a ‘recs from you’ post), but I’m certain it’s:
The Pact, by corilannam
The ancient Albion Pact demands that the Prince of Wales must take someone magic born as his soul-bonded consort by the time he is 30 or face death. Before he was a Detective Inspector Warlock, Merlin Emrys was young and in love and made a promise to Prince Arthur — and now Arthur is calling it in.
Fundamental Imperfection, by starlingthefool
Maybe my all time favourite tbh. I don’t know I just love it so so so much. It’s funny cause I just saw someone reblog the post about it on my dash, and I was re-reading my comment, and it sounds so proper and calm and serious while really all I have to say is ASLJGHDAKSHJFDASKGHFD I WANT TO ROLL AROUND IN THIS FIC AND NEVER COME OUT JFC IMPERFECTION MY ASS MORE LIKE PERFECTION.
Maybe I should amend my comment, idk. It just hit A LOT of my buttons in all the rights ways, and I’m still waiting for more fics where they are writers and talk about books and just are you know BOOKS AND WORDS AND STORYTELLING AND LOVE. I’ve re-read it a few days ago, and so far I think I must have read it between 6 and 10 times, idk, I don’t count but I’ve read it a lot (compared to others).
A kiss to brighten up your monday :) There will, one day, be kissing/etc. in The Thief’s Key, might as well practice by drawing Merlin, right?
I do not rec Colin/Bradley fics, no. Even though I do read them once in a while, I prefer keeping this blog Merlin/Arthur.
I do have a resource post for it HERE though.
And thank you :D
