Author has written 13 stories for Merlin.

Don't let it be forgot, that once there was a spot, for one brief shining moment, that was known as Camelot.

I write and read Merlin so be on the lookout fans, I'm on a roll with Badass Merlin :) Mostly I'll be writing alternative moments in Merlin where I'd imagine something different from the trailers. I also liked Smallville and Doctor Who but I don't watch a vast amount of TV and I didn't much like the other fandoms. I also don't really like slash but I do appreciate good writers such as littleshyangel who make it worth reading. I like Morgana. I just do, not Mordred. Mordred has no history with Merlin and at the moment his ultimate reason for vengeance is when Merlin tripped him up with a bit of wood. So I'll wait to see what Season Five is up to before writing anything with Mordred in.

Ongoing fics:

Getting the job done properly - started off as an alternative ending, developed into a fic of shameless Merlin badassery, lots of reveal and post reveal with the knights and finishing off with a dash of..well, I shouldn't say until it's finished :P

Caught- (put somewhat on hold until my other one is finished) Another alternative episode thing, with a little magic reveal and some badass Merlin in for good measure.

Works in progress:

Darkness Within - Sequel to Quest for Camelot, a few more reveals promised with (of course) badass Merlin, suspicious Arthur and an ancient danger that puts the city of Camelot on the edge of destruction.

Very much on hold:

Splintered Destiny - cowritten with Blood thirsty animal. Dark Merlin goes badass.

Never Hidden - started off as a oneshot, until the plot bunnies pounced. Big Reveal! Merlin goes into hiding and takes on the protection of everyone in a desperate battle to keep the peace.

A Friend in Need by Elfpen reviews
Gwaine has a problem. A big problem. A possibly treasonous, very dangerous, uncontrollable problem that may or may not get him killed and put all of his friends in danger.
