Author has written 8 stories for Merlin, and Dragon Age.

Completed stories, no matter how old, deserve favs and reviews. They are writting out of love and many appreciate the gesture.

- "How can you say you care when all you see is what I am not?"
- Merlin's gossiping went no further than the holes in Arthur's belt. (personal favourite, chapter 6 of Stealing servants, stealing hearts)

About me:

My (pen) name is Groulien and I've been reading fanfics for some time now.
I've written a couple of stories so far and my greatest fear remains messing up personalities.
It's just hard to bend a story to your will without making it out of character.
Since recently I'm also active on AO3 though FF.net is my main fanfic site.

My favourite music genres are Jazz/Swing and (alt.)Metal. Those two are complete opposites but my favourite band, Diablo Swing Orchestra, does (Swing/Metal) and I think they're amazing. Their songs Balrog Boogie and Voodoo Mon Amour are simply fantistic.

My favourite TV-Series are Doctor Who (Tennant and McGann tie for fav), Game of Thrones and Merlin.

I don't really have a favourite movie but if I had to pick one, I'd say V for vendetta.

My stories (highlight):

Stealing servants, stealing hearts [Romance]
- Complete

This is, without a doubt, my best work so far.
Set right after "The Once and Future Queen" Morgana is becoming increasinly annoyed with Arthur stealing her maid. Then, when she jokes they might as well swap servants, things become interesting. Mainly Merlin/Morgana, some Arthur/Gwen.

!) This story has a sequel: The Dream of Albion

XXXXXXXXXX

The Dream of Albion [Adventure, Romance]
- In-Progress

Sequel to "Stealing servants, stealing hearts" but can be read by itself.
Merlin and Morgana struggle with their newfound feelings but life goes on and it is still Merlin's destiny to protect Albion, but is it his destiny alone?
This is an AU with loads of new (episode styled) stories in which Morgana becomes increasingly important to the fate of Albion.
Hopefully it'll turn out to be just as good as the previous one.

XXXXXXXXXX

Bitter and Sweet [Romance, Hurt/Comfort]
- Complete

Nimueh plans to poison Bayard's gift to the Pendragons but curiosity gets the best of her and she agrees to go out with Merlin.

XXXXXXXXXX

By my hand
- Discontinued

When out hunting with Arthur, Merlin is saved from death by Morgana and things begin to spin out of control. Mergana story set shortly after 4x06.

XXXXXXXXXX

Tainted Albion [Merlin(BBC)/Dragon Age] [Adventure]
- On-Hold due to the lack of reviews (thus lack of motivation).
Will be resumed mid-July 2012, hopefully with more reviews.

When the veil between worlds was torn, the Dorocha were not the only ones to enter Albion. Featuring Hawke, Flemeth and Morrigan. More DA characters may follow depending on reviews.

XXXXXXXXXX

Destiny is Dead [Horror, Hurt/Comfort]
- Planning

An M-Rated story dedicated to Evil!Merlin, not for the faint of heart.

Upcoming:

Forgive and Forget [Romance, Hurt/Comfort]
- Rough draft

Albion has been united, Merlin is High Sorcerer and destiny fullfilled. Now it's time to pick up the pieces.
Merlin/Morgana, Post season 4.

Prefences in writing:

1. I don't like the term 'magic users'. I try to apply the same rules that are used for swords. You can use a sword, you can wield a sword but you're not a sword user. Personally I try to use 'those with magic' or 'sorcerers' (for male and mixed genders).
