    Summary

    Arthur is not in love with Gwen. Not anymore. He just needs his assistant to pose as his boyfriend at Gwen's wedding to prove that he's really over her. It's as simple as that.

    Only it isn't. He's not over her and she's marrying one of his best friends. Luckily he doesn't have to suffer through the wedding alone.

    Summary

    It’s the most beautiful time of the year and Merlin can’t wait to open his regular stall at the Ealdor Christmas Festival for weeks of handmade cards, wreaths, ice skating, not so secret Secret Santas, and cozy evenings with friends and family. But when newcomers Morgana and Arthur mistakenly intrude on his territory, Merlin isn’t sure he can embrace the season and overcome bad first impressions.

    Yet December in Ealdor brings its own kind of magic that doesn’t care for petty rivalries.

    Summary

    Cornwall coast, late eighteenth century.

    Artist Merlin Emrys is summoned to Pendragon House to paint a portrait of the owner’s son. But Arthur, about to be married off against his will, refuses to pose for it, and so Merlin is instructed to paint him in secret. Over the course of a week, he must spend time with Arthur and observe him closely enough to paint from memory. And he starts to have the oddest dreams...

    What does it mean, to be seen?

     
    Inspired by/a loose fusion with the film Portrait of a Lady on Fire, [2019, dir. Céline Sciamma]

    Summary

    Merlin isn't prepared for his first life drawing class, and he certainly isn't prepared for the model to be *him*
    Or his best friend insisting on making him laugh like that.

    Based off of the prompt: I'm naked in your art class, please stop giggling, what are you giggling at? AU

    I wrote this for my boyfriend because he wanted it and because I told him to ask me for some things. I'm not the most proud of it, and it's certainly not my best work, hence it being posted user my crackfic pseud.

    Summary

    Arthur had been familiar with his name for months now - the artist Merlin Emrys with whom his sister was so taken. His work! His talent! His vision! If Arthur had to hear one more word about Merlin Emrys’s vision he thought he might be sick.

    Summary

    Harry Hart and Hamish Grant were two prominent figures in the British art community. They featured in galleries all over the UK, famous for both their landscapes and portraits, and Hamish even did some sculpting on the side. One thing that assisted with their infamy was that the two were also married, and happily so, well known for using each other as reference material in their works.

    However, the couple were growing bored of using each other as reference material. Mutually, they had agreed to outsource an artistic model. They didn't care about height, weight, age, gender, any of that. They just wanted someone confident in their body, able to pose and dress up for hours on end for them. After a long recruitment process, having to turn away many people as they had only applied to see Harry and Hamish up close, they opened the final CV.

     

    Artist Harry and Merlin AU, life model Eggsy. Eventual Merhartwin.

    Summary

    Merlin and Arthur meet in the woods. Then they meet again. And then they meet again, and they start to wonder if their jokes about their namesakes' destinies are becoming less joking.

    I've written this from both of their perspectives, so each chapter has two parts, one from Merlin's POV and one from Arthur's. Also, I plan to make this completely domestic, so there will be no dramatic plot lines or heartbreaking angst to be seen here. I wanted a nice long indulgent fluff fic, and I couldn't find any so now I'm writing one.

    Summary

    Merlin's a young, hot, wildly uninhibited artist. Arthur's a middle-aged, handsome, millionaire businessman. He bumps into Merlin on a train and decides to go with the flow and see what happens. Orgasmic, paint-splattered, very confusing shenanigans ensue. It's exhausting ... and completely addictive.

    This was an amazing WIP I found by an Anonymous author on KinkMe years ago (https://kinkme-merlin.livejournal.com/13287.html?thread=13164775). BUT - it wasn't finished! And that drove me CRAAAZY because I HATE my boys being left with unfinished business (no puns intended). So ... I took it upon myself to finish the story, hopefully preserving the original author's incredible characterisation and magic ... I hope she/he finds it one day and likes my reworking! <3

    Summary

    “Arthur,” Gwen said, looking over to him consideringly. “Is Merlin the only one that gets to draw you, or are you open to working with other artists?”

    Arthur laughed. “Well,” he said, still slightly giddy, “seeing as how nude modeling inevitably ends up with me hard and jerking off- no, I generally don’t work with other artists.”

    “That wouldn’t be a problem for me,” Gwen said, her eyes dark and glittering with something between amusement and desire.

    Summary

    Merlin had no idea how it had come to this, he really didn’t. One minute he was lost in his work and then next he was- standing in front of a handsome naked stranger fumbling at the zip of his jeans, practically shaking as he pulled Merlin closer. What the fuck.

    Summary

    Even after three years, Merlin still couldn’t quite believe how fucking perfect Arthur was. No matter how much time passed, he couldn’t get enough of painting his gold hair, his sharp hips, the way his skin flushed and light caressed his muscled body.

    Summary

    Arthur had no idea how it had come to this, he really didn’t. One minute he was yelling at his father, and the next he was- standing in just his black boxer briefs in front of a handsome stranger in the middle of an art studio in the woods. What the fuck.

    Now with a semi-sequel: Out of the Woods

    Summary

    It's a complete accident when he opens the bottom desk drawer and sees a large, leather-bound book. It's not quite an accident when he opens it to find a drawing of himself staring back at him.
