Author has written 22 stories for Merlin, Torchwood, Musketeers, Atlantis, and Humans.

Hello! My name is Matthew1972 (aka Matthew72), a fanfiction writer since August 2012. I started writing for the Merlin fandom, but over the years I have expanded my horizons to other fandom worlds and a few short original stories as well.

Please take note of that not all of my work is posted on here. My MA-rated fanfiction is posted in the AO3 archive.
