    Summary

    Originally posted on the kinkme_merlin (on livejournal) post for the prompt: Modern AU, "Merlin is Arthur's booty call".

    In the end, it turned out that was only the beginning, and what ensued was a story of the power of true love. It never gets old, although this story does make mention, many times, of antiques.

    Summary

    Lancelot is still alive because I like him that way.

    Summary

    A Modern day Merlin AU set at the University of St Andrews, featuring teetotal kickboxers, secret wizards, magnificent bodyguards of various genders, irate fairies, imprisoned dragons, crumbling gothic architecture, arrogant princes, adorable engineering students, stolen gold, magical doorways, attempted assassination, drunken students, shaving foam fights, embarrassing mornings after, The Hammer Dance, duty, responsibility, friendship and true love...

    This story was inspired by the thought of Prince William of Wales (and indeed the current Max von Hapsburg) studying at the University of St Andrews; it is also, as the title suggests, at least a little inspired by the operetta 'The Student Prince'.

    Grateful thanks to Lamardeuse and DarkEmeralds for Beta and cheerleading!

    I looooove this story-- who doesn't!?-- and was surprised to discover that I had not yet bookmarked it.

    Summary

    Some quests are about much more than finding medicinal plants, mythical treasure, or large quantities of meat. Arthur is slow on the uptake, but he will get there, eventually. Canon-era AU firmly grounded in, and set after, the halcyon days of Series 1.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    I read this story ages and ages ago and had forgotten most of it. I'm so glad I came across it again. I soon recognized the delightful writing and enjoyed this skillful version of the canon-era magic reveal and first time tale.
