Author has written 26 stories for Merlin.

Hi!

I'm a reader, not a writer.

I've never taken writing courses and don't think I ever will. So, yes, it's true, I don't know what I'm doing.

However! Occasionally I will feel a need to type out an idea and the next thing I know there's a finished story in front of my eyes. So odd... It's weird how every one of those stories come out in such different styles. I guess I just don't have a writing style of my own. I don't belabor these little stories, I just throw them out quickly, although I do strive to spell correctly. And, yes, I'm sure I overuse, underuse and misuse commas. ,

I'm posting these stories because I like them and I am inspired by everyone else on here who was brave enough to post so I'll try to be brave and share my ideas too. Maybe you'll like them or maybe you won't. I'd be interested to read reviews purely out of curiosity to see what that's like.

I am a disciple of Jesus Christ. I'm married to a handsome classical guitarist who makes me laugh every day. I'm a mother of a digitally artistic fangirl with Rapunzel hair, a cowboy who likes to do colonial reenacting, and a gentle hearted boy with autism who will surpass us all in his brilliance. We are all huge nerds and really enjoy each other's company. Outside of the home, I work as an elementary school librarian. (Best job in the world!) My life is simple and that's the way I like it.

Best wishes!

Hello Again!

So now it's 2019! I've really enjoyed posting stories and making new friends and connections here. I'm still a rabid reader and have no aspirations to be a writer, but I admit that I'm surprised at the number of stories that have occurred to me. It's been a fun adventure. Hope you enjoy my little stories for the itty bits of shine that they are intended to be. If there is any underlying message to be found in my writing I hope it is this: Be kind and think of others.

All the best!

Wow! It’s 2020!

Yep, I’m still hanging around and playing in the Merlin sandbox.

Pam Allyn said, ”Reading is like breathing in; Writing is like breathing out.”

I take super deep breaths every day. Fanfiction is where I exhale.

(...while sitting at least six feet away and wearing a mask.)

Good-bye 2020! Don't let the door hit you in the fanny on the way out.

Whew! Thank goodness that’s over. It..it’s over..like REALLY over..right, 2021?

Hello all you survivors! Let’s reclaim life!

Beware Merlin's Smile reviews
On the way home from Camlann and the shores of Avalon, Arthur is admonished to give attention to one remaining danger. This one is a bit more serious than the usual. I'm adding on. This is no longer a one shot.

The Last Laugh reviews
The consequences of a ghostly rumor inconvenience Merlin and, therefore, the Prince. Will Arthur's attempt to put rumors to rest succeed? Is the castle haunted or is there a magical trickster lurking about? Who will have the last laugh? An adventuresome night in the hallway should answer all those questions. Just a bit of spooky fun for Halloween.

The Endelíf reviews
"NO, DON'T!" The swirling vortex around Merlin seemed to squeeze him and then Gaius was thrown backward and the windows and doors blew outward, raining debris into the corridor and the courtyard below as the magic exploded." After an attempt on the new Court Warlock's life goes strangely awry, Merlin's friends rally around him. De-aged Merlin, but not as you've ever seen it.

Loneliness can ravage a person's heart and mind. Merlin needs a companion as he continues to wait for Arthur. The past may hold the key.

Because It Was reviews
Arthur reacts badly to Merlin's revelation and quickly regrets it, but not quick enough. How does one find an all powerful warlock who doesn't believe he deserves to be found?

Arthur goes looking for his wayward manservant. He was supposed to be at Arthur's side. Always. He had no business being anywhere else. Be warned: This is my least cheerful fic ever.

The Neckerchief reviews
Merlin Watching had become one of Camelot's most favorite pastimes. Observers just couldn't help analyzing everything related to him. It seemed that everything down to even his most mundane habits were to be dissected in the search for dark secrets and magical meaning. The latest object of wonder and speculation was none other than Merlin's neckerchief.

Destiny Rewritten reviews
On the shores of Avalon, as the king lies dying, Kilgharrah starts saying the most ridiculous things. Merlin sets him straight and then sets Destiny straight. The Triple Goddess approves. "Merlin, you cannot overcome Destiny's path," warned Kilgharrah. "Watch me," Merlin retorted fiercely.

Arthur Washed His Own Socks Day: The Origins reviews
While Merlin is in recovery and George is away, Arthur takes some initiative. Shocking, yes, and definitely a cause for celebration. Some lighthearted crack to celebrate 1917farmgirl's birthday. Seriously, this is pretty darn cracky. Happy Birthday!

Not all of Merlin's rescues were epic and angsty. Some were clever and sweet. A snippet from a couple of Merlin's more relaxed days in Camelot. Just for fun.

A Gift Well Received reviews
Merlin hasn't seemed to really appreciate any of the gifts Arthur's given him in the past. Guinevere suggests Arthur try doing something Merlin really would appreciate, no matter how much it pains Arthur. Happy Yule! Have a Hug!

A Birthday reviews
"Magic had never had a birthday until he came. It had existed from the beginning and dimly awaited his coming, knowing that the moment of prophecy would come to pass and it would be as momentous as everything else normally was...it was magic after all. But this being, this soul, this boy brought a new kind of magic." A super short one shot that came out of the blue.

First Times reviews
There's a first time for everything, especially for a poor, young peasant who's suddenly working for a prince in a big city. There's a first time for everything, especially for a resurrected king being introduced to a new world by his warlock. Bromance and fluff as Merlin and Arthur watch each other experience strange new things for the first time. No slash.

Friend to a Dragonless Dragonlord reviews
Arthur knew Merlin was more than just the other side of his coin. His kinship with majestic creatures of magic also had a place in his remarkable soul. That ancient kinship called out but would remain unanswered now that all the dragons were nothing more than legend. Merlin needed the comfort of Arthur's friendship and understanding, and Arthur was ready and willing to give it.

Mab reviews
Magic, strange, beautiful and wild flashes past. Whispers echo in his ear. "Wishes can become dreams. Dreams can be made real. Hello again, Little One." Destiny sends a worn and weary Merlin straight into the care of Mab, Queen of the Fairies. Arthur and his knights are there too, only, for them...it's not as fun. Slight AU ending.

What happened to Merlin in Ismere is sooo not okay! This is the story of the price of neglect. -"Where is everyone? They were just here." Darkness blurred his vision. He took another slow step, stumbled, and never felt the blow as his face hit the icy mud.

Albion AU: Merlin's Child reviews
"Help him! Help him Merlin! Make him all right! Save him!" Merlin moved quickly to the shocked midwife who stared down at the still, blue baby in her arms. "He's not breathing! Help him!" -This belongs in my Albion AU series, but it just didn't feel chapter-ish so I'm letting it stand alone.

Just a short one shot inspired by and dedicated to the first Merlin fan fiction I ever found online: Kingdom Come. (It's on Tumblr.) I love the creative ideas in that story. This little story of my creation is hanging out on the fringe of the Kingdom Come AU. Merlin seriously needs to get some sleep!-so he does. He also deserves a really nice room of his own, don't you think?

The three men finally turned to notice Merlin slumped at the table fast asleep. Upon closer inspection Merlin's friends could see that his thin body looked utterly worn out and forlorn.
