Any genre or pairing is acceptable for nomination (gen, het, slash, femmeslash, OT3/4/5, RPF...) except for Merlin/Arthur (in this round) as there have already been awards specific to this pairing (Merlin/Arthur Fic Awards) A note on possible exceptions is included in the Nominations and Guidelines section. It would be nice to see some great Merlin/Nimueh fic recognised!

Fic: The Lady of the Lake

Title: The Lady of the Lake
Author: sophielou21
Paring: One-sided Merlin/Nimueh, hinted Merlin/Morgana
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 2,460
Spoilers/Warnings: Maybe some spoilers for Series 1 and the legends around Merlin.
Author's Notes: This is a fic based on The Phantom of the Opera for reel_merlin. I had hoped to make this a longer fic with more of the film re-interpreted into the Merlin-verse but for real life reasons I had to keep it short. A special thanks to simply_numpty</lj>for being my beta!
Summary: Merlin finds himself being haunted by a powerful all-seeing voice inside his head, claiming to be the mythical ‘Lady of the Lake’.

Mods. Hope this is okay to post - let me know if not!


New comm pimpage: Merlin Thematic


Merlin Thematic is a community where you'll find your fandom needs according to themes! You can either rec your work (or the others work) in here or post them directly, the only necessity is to tag them according to themes. We're welcoming suggestions ;)

Only fanfiction, fanart, fanvid and fanmix posts are allowed, as the icons and wallpapers are hard to be tagged through themes and there is already so many beautiful Merlin graphic journals.


Merlin!Cast wallpaper series continue..

Wall #1 includes: Morgana, Uther, Nimueh, Merlin, Arthur, Gwen, Lancelot, Gaius
