Title: An Eternity to Live, a Moment To Die
Author: [livejournal.com profile] awyvern/wyvern (AO3)
Artist: [livejournal.com profile] aaweth_edain
Pairings/characters: Merlin/Arthur, Merlin/Mordred, Arthur/Mithian, Uther/Helen (background pairings: Gwen/Lancelot, Percival/Sefa, Arthur/Cenred, canon!Arthur/Gwen); Morgana, the Cailleach, Will, Freya, Leon, Gwaine, Percival, Cornelius Sigan, Cenred, Gaius, Edwin, Elena.
Rating: Explicit/NC-17 (violence and sexual content).
Word Count: 40,212
Warnings: Violence, reincarnation, character death (not Arthur/Merlin), angst, hurt/comfort.
Summary: Modern AU (reincarnation). Follows canon up to Arthur’s death in 5x13, but deviates after that.

Arthur dies in Merlin’s arms after being stabbed by Mordred, and is sent to Avalon. As it turns out, the Great Dragon was right about something and Arthur gets to live life after life, unknowingly waiting for his destiny and an age-old prophecy to come true.
When Merlin dies, being a creature of magic, he is confronted by the Cailleach and gets the choice to either stay immortal, waiting for Arthur, or to be reincarnated until the two of them are reunited. Unable to imagine living forever with nothing but memories to sustain him, Merlin chooses to forget and be reborn.
Morgana gets the same choice, but chooses immortality. What she doesn’t realise is that she will be stuck watching over the very people who caused her death, waiting for them to fulfil their joint destiny and setting her free.
She also doesn’t know that her wards are in danger and that the inevitable storm is drawing closer...

Author's notes: All my love, respect and thank yous to the following people:
- [livejournal.com profile] the_muppet, for running this fest and doing so brilliantly. I’m happy and honoured that I got to be a part of it.
- Ana, for alternating between cheering me on and threatening my life when I wanted to give up. She also endured my endless whining and angry outbursts when I let frustration get the better of me. I truly would never have finished this story if it wasn’t for you. ♥
- Cat, for having the patience and skills to sort out the virtual grammar catastrophe that used to be my story.
- Jinx, for rummaging through my grammar errors and heaps of unnecessary words and finding something worth salvaging, and for never giving up on me.
- [livejournal.com profile] scotscookie, for becoming my britpicker, cheerleader and beta when things didn’t work out the way I wanted them to. You’re absolutely fantastic and I really can't thank you enough for everything you’ve done for me the past few months.
- The entire LM Hive Mind, for helping me out when I stumbled into the chat at all hours of the day to ask for words I couldn’t find on my own. Thanks, lovelies! *hive fives everyone*
- Everyone who has given me advice or/and encouragement along the way. (You guys know who you are.) I can’t tell you how much I appreciate it.
- The last shout out goes to my amazing artist Kay ([livejournal.com profile] aaweth_edain) who saved me when I asked for an artist only two weeks before posting began and who bore with me when I suddenly decided I wanted traditional art instead of manips. I love the art you made for the story. Thank you.
Artist's notes: Hello everyone! I hope you like my art. I was trying to create a stained glass look for the windows or background. Your lovely author gave me lots to work with and helped create the cover, which I think turned out wonderfully! If you are interested, the titles of the books flying around are '1984' 'Carrie', and 'The Hobbit'. I had a lot of fun creating the art.

Hey guys!

I’m in need of a beta reader who can work fast and help me out with my Paperlegends fic. Due to unforeseen circumstances, my beta reader is unable to help me out.

I already have two wonderful people who are helping me out with grammar and spelling, so your job would mainly be to make sure the story doesn’t contradict itself, and (if you’re British) to britpick away all my Americanisms. Because of this, I’d prefer if you’re an English native speaker, and even better if you’re British.

Due to the rating on my fic (E/NC-17), you must be at least over 17 years of age (and preferably a few years more).

This is extremely late, and I don’t really expect this post to result in anything, but there’s no harm in trying…

LOOK!

Sorry, I'm just really proud of myself. I might make the check-in yet.

Panic mode

I've started to panic. Not horrendously, yet, but just slightly. I don't understand how I'm supposed to get everything done. BB, work, meeting family, meeting friends, writing, podficcing! And I want to do ALL those things! Well, except work, but I can't exactly skip that, now, can I?

I just don't get it. How does everyone else manage?

Okay, so this is what I'm writing about (although I haven't gotten very far, yet):

Based on this song.

Morgana is watching the world 'from above'. She chose to keep her memories and to live on as an immortal when she was presented with the choice as she died. However, as punishment for her selfishness in canon, she must watch over Merlin and Arthur until they find each other. She's fine with it - now - although she wishes they'd really find each other already, so that she can be set free to do whatever she wants.

(Deviation from canon: Merlin died, but he - unlike Morgana - chose to lose his memories and to be reborn.)

Merlin works at a bookshop. He has a weak kind of magic ('household magic'), nothing like in canon, and two best friends in Gwen and Will. Early on, he'll get into a relationship with Mordred, which works fine (but isn't excellent).

Arthur's in a relationship with Mithian (which is also fine; they're planning their wedding). He's working at Uther's company and is generally pretty satisfied with life.

The boys run into each other at the supermarket (without knowing it), and sparks happens - literally - when an unexpected flare of Merlin's magic makes all the lights in the store go out.

After that, they'll run into each other at different places without realising it (cue Morgana being frustrated); each time with Merlin's magic reacting to the proximity between the two soulmates.

However, something is rotten in the state of D-, uh, Albion, and while neither of them are aware (seriously, it sounds like they're completely clueless, but they will catch on... later), both Merlin and Arthur are in danger. Someone - or something - are out to kill them because of an ancient prophecy.

Merlin and Arthur will find each other eventually, and they'll fight the mysterious force/person that wants them dead and everything'll end well.

That's pretty much it.

(Jeez, it sounds really complicated, and I guess it is... but it'll be fine. I'll work it out.)

Cold

All podficcing is put on hold (thanks to who/whatever that I finished my LM parts last week!) due to the fact that I woke up with a disgusting cold this morning. Probably isn't a totally bad thing, though, since I always prioritize podficcing before everything else nowadays. It's fun.

I have a lot of other stuff to do, so... yeah. Maybe it's good to not be able to podfic for a week. Otherwise I'm working today, trying to get a lot done. By necessity, of course -- the deadline is tomorrow morning.

I also should help out a tumblr acquaintance with a creative writing thing -- and let's not forget my own BB fic. I really, really must get started properly on that, otherwise I won't finish it, and I really want to.

Actually working today. But I'm tired and really in a pretty bad mood. It's going slowly in the right direction, but it's not the best work I've ever done. And I'm worried about the future. But whatever, it'll work out sooner or later.

Haven't started properly (only written one page) on my BB fic either, which worries me quite a lot. I have a pretty good idea where I'm going with it, though... Although, when I actually sit down and write, it tends to go off in a different direction. Need to rein it in a little.

And the podficcing of the story I'm doing on my own has gotten a bit shuffled under the table lately. To be honest, all I really want to do when I don't fret about work/future/obligations is sleep.

When I'm done with this work (on Wednesday), I'm taking a week off. No, really, I am. Because that's the one thing that's good with being a freelancer. I can actually do that.

So scared I can hardly breathe. But it'll be fine, I'm sure... Yes, it will.
