    Summary

    Captain Arthur Pendragon has put together the best team of specialists that the SAS has ever seen, but when his superiors assign Lieutenant Merlin Emrys as his communications officer, Arthur does everything to make him feel unwelcome. Arthur's job is to protect and guide his team through dangerous missions, and he worries that he can't do that when the newest member has a mysterious background and acts suspicious when he thinks no one is looking.

    As their assignments become more dangerous, Merlin can't help but to use his magic to keep his team -- even his prat of a Captain -- safe from threats they couldn't possibly understand. But when they are sent on a undercover operation against a group of zealots intent on a magical apocalypse, Merlin needs to confront his fear of discovery and derision, and to finally trust his team with his secret.

    Arthur and Merlin rely on each other for more than the sake of their mission. The entire world is at stake. When they learn -- from dragons, no less -- that they are prophesied to restore the balance of magic to the world, they fight on regardless of the outcome, because duty, honour and loyalty is a far stronger driving force than destiny.

    My new fave Merthur series! I was avoiding reading it for so long, but I'm glad that I did. It's extensive and lovely and very episodic; a bit like watching the series but in a modern, military setting. I also enjoyed the integration of the magical aspects and different characters and seeing them in this AU.

    Summary

    Taking Bilbo Baggins, a successful movie actor who is only just getting used to the perks and intricacies of becoming A Face People Want To See, and putting him together with Thorin Oakenshield, with his very traditional (read: slightly backwards) ideas about what constitutes Real Art and Real Talent, might very well be viewed as just some clothead’s idea of a joke. But there are jokes, and then there are carefully calculated risks the size of controversial reproductions of classic Shakespearean plays - for Bilbo, it is the chance of a lifetime to prove himself to all those who have ever deemed him too one-dimensional to even attempt stage, while Thorin has the opportunity to get out of the rut that’s been hindering his career for so long now, and shine in a role worthy of his talent once again. That is if the two learn how to share the same space for more than ten minutes without wanting to tear each other’s hair out. The course of true love never did run smooth, after all…

    I'm already crying and this story isn't even doNE YET.

    Honestly, I was going to wait until it was complete, but I was getting antsy and I couldn't wait anymore. Ugh, another F A N T A S T I C work by bilboo; Thorin and Bilbo's characterizations are gorgeously written, and I can't say how much I loved Dís(!!) and Dwalin and their subtle relationship. The introduction of Bard near the extreme latter end of the fic was a pleasant surprise, and I'm hoping the spinoff will be about them!

    A truely magnificent story to match Nothing Gold Can Stay.

    Summary

    Bilbo Baggins led a rather peaceful life, thank you very much, until an old acquaintance decided to turn it upside down, and he found himself agreeing to take a job that’s… let’s say not exactly up his alley, and might eventually cost him a little more than his treasured cozy lifestyle. Who would have thought tutoring a slightly menacing monarch’s more than slightly overbearing nephew could prove to be such an… adventure?

    My first (seriou, non-one shot) Bagginshield fic.

    Mahal help me I didn't know I DIDNT KNOW IT WOUKD BE THIS AMAZING..,!

    I put off reading this for about two weeks and I'm glad I didn't start when I had because I never would have gotten my homework done. Ugh, just everything about this story is literally perfect and I can't fathom how much thought and effort (and no doubt, tears) were put into this. It's worth every word and I wish I could erase it from my memory just so I could have the pleasure of reading it anew once more.

    Summary

    Post-canon AU / Canon AU from S2. It's been ten years since Arthur drifted away from him on the Lake of Avalon, but even inside Camelot's walls, Merlin is still lost. Hiding from those who know him and cut off from his former life in self-imposed exile, he can't resist the temptation when a mysterious stranger offers him the chance to set things right. Merlin returns to the past, to an innocent, simpler time, armed with the knowledge of Arthur's fate. He knows the odds (and the stubborn people - Arthur in particular) are stacked against him and the obstacles he must overcome seem insurmountable. Can destiny be nudged enough to save Arthur's life, and is the price too high?

    It's been a while since I've been so dedicated to a fic that I would neglect everything else I favor of reading it from start to finish in one night. The characterizations were very well done and I'm absolutely in love with this story's Morgana. This fic is beautiful. Gorgeous. Heart wrenching and soothing all in one punch. It's the fix-it fic we all wanted, yet it ends on a bittersweet note. I got extremely emotional towards the end, but no other ending would have been acceptable. Please read this immediately.
