Haven't done recs in ages...

I'll say one thing about the Merlin Season Finale, despite it being an epic disappointment, unlike other shows, it didn't disappointment me in such a way that I get disgusted thinking about anything to do with the show. Instead, these last few days during my Christmas break, I have been searching out fanfic like woah. You know, fanfic that is epic and cute and where shit happens. You know, which shit I'm talking about.

The early partsof Season 4 satisfied my fannish desires so much onscreen, that I didn't find that need to look for fix-its in fics. The latter parts though? Quite the opposite.

So here be a few recs (that have undoubtedly been recced before elsewhere :)

Favourite by astolat
Basically the old "fuck or die" curse and, as such, immensely porny but with a few good and genuinely funny characters bits nonetheless

Springes to catch woodcocks by myashke
Oodles of protective!Arthur and featuring something that I have found to be an obviously beloved trope in Merlin fandom: hypothermia fic

The Weight of Words by waldorph
In a way a character study of Arthur with lovely Merthur thrown in

And as for fanvids, I think this is one of the most beautiful ones I've ever seen: It's all for you
(You'll need a proxy or something logging in from Germany because it gives you the lovely Gema-message otherwise *eyeroll*

I'm still an avid shipper of Merthur. I just wish canon would catch up (again) to the pairing that doesn't make me angry and/or sad. Or easier said: fuck the magic secret, fuck it as if it was the bottom in a very long and naughty PWP. :-P

Good vid.
And while you're here is there any good fics with protective Merlin when Arthur finds out about magic? Or some good slash with top!Arthur?

Hm, there are quite a few when the secret comes out due to Merlin being protective and afterwards it's a lot of apologizing and tearful swearing allegiance to Arthur. Not sure if that would be the kind of thing you're looking for?

Or some good slash with top!Arthur?

Arthur tops a lot in what I read though there is also a lot of switching between them. But I'll look around for some. Let me get back to you.

Thanks in advance :)
As for the first term the reveal can be NOT because of Merlin being protective. I want him to be protective after Arthur will find out and be a mess because of it ;)
Is there any good gen? (i know, shocking)
