MERLIN BIG BANG: Flesh and Blood Dance  
Title: Flesh and Blood Dance
Creators: Words by [info - personal] lilithilien, art by [info - personal] chosenfire28, video by [info] mamoru22
Rating/Word Count: R / 58,500 words
Pairings: Merlin/Arthur, Merlin/Tony, Bradley/Colin, Nimueh/Morgana
Summary: The 21st century is still a land of myth and a time of magic. The spells and enchantments that Uther banished are gone, but myths and magic live on, conjured on screens large and small with scripts and CGI. But one day, inspired by boredom and not a little mischief, an entertainment mogul (who just happens to be an ex-evil sorceress) decides it might be a lark to tell the Arthurian legend—as it really happened. It's just a little BBC series, just something to amuse herself (and annoy Merlin, of course). But when they awaken the Old Ways, not even the greatest Seer of all can foretell what awaits them. This is a story of destiny and choices, about what happens when sorcerers and kings collide with actors and beasts, and just how bad morning breath would be after a 1500-year sleep.

The Gift  
Title: The Gift
Author: [info]lilithilien
Fandom/Characters: Merlin, Merlin/Arthur
Word Count/Rating: 750 words/gen
Summary: After his coronation, Arthur realises what he's been given.
Disclaimer: Mine, all mine! Except not.
A/N: Happy birthday to [info]kabal42!! I hope that you have a truly fabulous day, and that someday, when you look back on this year, you'll remember it as the one when your dreams took flight! Set a few days after "Excalibur" (just long enough for Merlin to get those robes clean).

Accidents Will Happen  
Title: Accidents Will Happen
Author: [info]lilithilien
Fandom/Characters: Merlin RPS, Bradley/Colin
Word Count/Rating: 3000 words/NC-17
Summary: It isn't like Bradley hasn't thought about it. A lot. It's more that the timing's never right, that at first he's still reeling from a nasty split with Michelle, that he isn't even sure he's that into guys. Besides, he has no clue which side Colin comes down on, and he really doesn't want things to get weird between them... Valid excuses, all. In the end, not one of them matters.
Disclaimer: Utter fabrication and gross lies.
A/N: When plotty Big Bang plot gets too plotty, fluff comes out. Or as fluffy as I ever get anyway. What can I say—uncommunicative boys are my weakness! Thanks to [info]aelora who convinced me not to pitch this in a fit of pique. Extra helpings of fries and baklava to my lovely porn aficionados betas [info]sdk and [info]aldiara.

Not Sentimental  
Title: Not Sentimental
Author: [info]lilithilien
Fandom/Characters: Merlin, Arthur/Merlin
Word Count/Rating: 1000 words/Gen
Summary: Since the first day of his service, Merlin had wondered about the helmets perched on the prince's cabinet.
Disclaimer: Property of the BBC and Shine, sadly not mine.
A/N: Arthur doesn't strike me as a knick-knack man, which is why I've wondered about these helmets in his room. I think Merlin must wonder, too. Huge thanks to the lovely [info]ladyflowdi who inspired me by saying that in 1000 years these model helmets would be model x-wing fighters, and to the wonderful [info]sarcastic_jo and [info]aelora who helped whip this into shape.

Mothers Always Know  
Title: Mothers Always Know
Author: [info]lilithilien
Fandom/Characters: Merlin, Bradley/Colin
Word Count/Rating: ~500 words/PG
Summary: Bradley can't tell his mum about Colin.
Disclaimer: LIES! This is completely made up and has nothing to do with the real actor or his family!
A/N: I went to bed thinking about the Merlin cast making their way down to France and suddenly this appeared. It then refused to wait until morning when it could be properly written and betaed. So here it is -- it's just a wee thing, but it wanted to come out, and I hope it amuses you.

DVD Extras: Most Proud Of  
Title: DVD Extras: Most Proud Of
Author: [info]lilithilien
Fandom/Characters: Merlin, Bradley/Colin
Word Count/Rating: ~2000 words/PG
Summary: Bradley rushing to check on Colin + awkward comment about stunt = overprotective!Bradley fic
Disclaimer: This is utter fabrication, every word of it, except for the dialogue that came directly from this interview (starting ~2:12). And the fact that Bradley did rush over to see if Colin was okay. Because you can't make this stuff up!!
A/N: Those DVD extras are proving very inspiring. This is for the lovely [info]aelora who didn't think I was silly for obsessing. I had more betas on this than a 2K bit of RPS deserves. Thanks to my dear [info]sarcasticchick who read until she fell asleep (hopefully not because of the story) and to the lifesaving lovelies [info]sdk and [info]aldiara, who both agreed to help me at the spur of the moment so I could post tonight, because I'm impatient like that.

DVD Extras: In These Stones  
Title: DVD Extras: In These Stones
Author: [info]lilithilien
Fandom/Characters: Merlin, Bradley/Colin
Word Count/Rating: ~2000 words/NC-17 for porn and language
Summary: Cavesmut. That is all.
Disclaimer: This is a complete lie, completely the product of my warped imagination, and bears no resemblance to any reality. (Although I did borrow dialogue from Colin Morgan's video diary for the beginning and the end. YES! They really did say that!)
A/N: I thought I was getting my life back, I really did. And then those DVD extras came out, and Bradley tells Colin to wait in a dark part of the cave and that he'll come back for him, and just what am I supposed to do with that?!! Many heart-shaped boxes of chocolates should be heaped upon [info]sarcastic_jo for noting poorly executed porn logistics and all-around amazingness. (And yes, I know I'm using a Torchwood-related title, but ... the cave's in Wales, yeah, that's it!)

Vigil  
Title: Vigil
Author: [info]lilithilien
Fandom/Characters: Merlin, Bradley/Colin
Word Count/Rating: ~500 words/Gen
Summary: Colin isn't a sorcerer. He has no power, nothing to offer except the rituals of his youth.
Disclaimer: This is complete fiction; I know nothing about these characters' real lives, religious beliefs, sexual preference, nada.
A/N: When this thing of beauty sank its razor-sharp teeth into my neck and refused to let go, I couldn't rest until I'd written it. (Literally. What is it with Bradley!muse demanding I write RPF in the wee hours of the night?) If I had any graphics-fu I'd have photoshopped Colin watching in the background; lacking that, I had to do it with words instead. Thanks, as ever, go to [info]sarcastic_jo for beta, suggestions, and Catholic consult. (Posted at MerlinRPF.)

Manwhore  
Title: Manwhore
Author: [info]lilithilien
Fandom/Characters: Merlin, Bradley/Colin (and Bradley and Colin with a whole lot of other people)
Word Count/Rating: ~9300 words of stinking lies. At least some of them are porn.
Summary: "If anybody should be called a manwhore, it's you, Colin."
Disclaimer: Damn lies, all of it. This is the humiliating result of my obsession with Bradley and Colin and bears no resemblance to reality in any sense of the word.
A/N: Bradley James talks to me in bed. No, really. He waits until I'm about to fall asleep, and then appears in muse form to whisper, "Don't you want to get up and write porn about me?" "No," I say, "I'm going to sleep. And I don't write RPF anyway." "But you could. And it's all about me, so it'll be quick and dirty." "Quick and dirty, you say? No time-consuming plot? No angsting?" "Nope. Just a smutlet, won't take you any time at all." I'll tell you this straight up: Bradley James is a damn liar. And [info]sarcastic_jo is responsible for aiding and abetting.

Dirty Laundry  
Title: Dirty Laundry
Author: [info]lilithilien
Fandom/Characters: Merlin, Arthur/Merlin
Word Count/Rating: 500 words/NC-17
Summary: Uther is not impressed with Merlin. Arthur is.
Disclaimer: So very not mine. If they were, this scene would be canon.
A/N: Missing scene from episode 1x04. This started with [info]sarcastic_jo innocently questioning whether Arthur wore the longcoat of sexxx during the initial meeting with King Bayard. Of course, that required watching again, as well as pondering why Arthur was slumming while everybody else was dressed to the nines. Cracky porn ensued. (Posted at merlinxarthur.

Title: No Other Reason
Author: [info]lilithilien
Fandom/Characters: Merlin, Arthur/Merlin
Word Count/Rating: 1160 words/Gen
Summary: Merlin is the worst manservant Arthur has ever had. The wonder is that he keeps him around at all.
Disclaimer: This incarnation of Merlin belongs to the BBC and folks at Shine. There would be even more dressing (and undressing) if they were mine.
A/N: A brief chronicling of Arthur's denial. Set between episodes 1x02 and 1x03. Massive thanks to the wonderful [info]sarcastic_jo for the beta, cheerleading, whipcracking, and all-around awesomeness. (Posted at merlinxarthur.)

To Be King  
Title: To Be King
Author: [info]lilithilien
Fandom/Characters: Merlin, Arthur/Merlin
Word Count/Rating: 1325 words/R
Summary: Merlin is Camelot, distilled in physical form.
Disclaimer: This incarnation of Merlin belongs to Auntie Beeb. Definitely, definitely not mine.
A/N: Chronicling a fangirl's demise: "No, never -- Merlin is faaar too cheesy. OK, yeah, it's cheesy, but it is fun. And by fun, I of course mean I can't believe there's so much slash! I'll read just this one story on my flist, but I don't have time for another fandom. Look at all the shiny comms! And wow, what great stories there are. But I'll never write in it, ever. Oh, hells." This started out as a short character study of Arthur and somehow turned to smut. I blame Bradley James and that ... thing ... he does with his voice. Huge thanks to [info]sarcastic_jo for beta and enabling. (Posted at merlinxarthur and merlinslash.
