Requests and Claims

Righty-o, then! Here's the ubiquitous claims post. Feel free to offer your most cherished fantasies for Merlin's future! Where would you like the show to go? What would you like to see happen next? And what do you think might happen in the distant future, with all your favorite characters, long after the five seasons of the show are done? Anything and everything you can possibly imagine for the show's future has a definite chance of being written, drawn or vidded here. Get loose! Get freaky. Uh huh. Uh huh.

The following rules might help you better adhere to the threadbare requirements of this humble fest. Please follow these rules, and spare me the trouble of spitting fire futilely in my underground cave while you hand my special magic sword over to someone else! Even if it is Uther Pendragon. Yes, that's right. I'm looking at you, young warlocks. Have a care.

1. All requests must be made in the form of comments to this post.

2. All requests must be set in the future. (After the end of Season One.)

3. No request may deviate in any way from known canonical facts.

4. Anyone can make a request; only a member may claim it.

5. Requests must be claimed by replying to the comments in which the requests were made.

6. You may make or claim as many requests as you like.

7. Any number of people may claim a request, so long as they each do something unique with it.

8. Your requests may be as long or as short as you like. Simple prompts are okay, too.

9. Yes, you can claim your own prompt. Just make sure to leave a comment saying that you are.

10. If there is a particular pairing or situation that you definitely do not want to see, say so.

Go ahead and make your requests, everyone! Make as many as you'd like; claim as many as you'd like. You have to be a member to claim a request, though. Keep that in mind.

Once you've claimed a prompt, go here to read the submission rules. Do not post to this community if you a) haven't read the submission rules, or b) aren't sure that you'll be able to obey them. But if you are ready to play by the rules, then you're more than welcome to join our happy little fest! Claim a prompt and get going! The deadline is the 1st of September 2009, so there's plenty of time for you to churn out an entry or two.

Contact me if you have any questions. My email address is saucery AT yahoo DOT com. I'm also leaving a few requests below, just to show the rest of you how it's done. (Ha. Well, the real motive is to get someone to claim my prompts. Hee!)

I can't write at all, but I can give ideas! :) And also, somebody please write saucery's prompt about Arthur and Gwen, because I've been puzzling over that myself, given the show canon, and would LOVE to see a canon-fitting explanation.

1. Arthur finds out, as you see it actually happening on the show. So, episodic and probably gen, though I'll never say no to M/A!

2. The dragon is set free. Maybe Merlin does it by accident, maybe the magical villain of the week manages it. Mayhem and/or hijinks ensue.

3. Somehow Arthur ends up spending a day with Gaius, like, picking herbs or something. I don't even know, I just think this would be hilarious.

4. I just read OAFK, and I'd kill for someone to write any or all of:
- Arthur meeting Robin Hood,
- Arthur meeting King Pellinore (the show already had a Pellinore, what what, but this is probably his dad),
- Merlin turning Arthur into a squirrel,
- Merlin getting more powerful and confused with time and space,
- Arthur gathering his knights, the ones who aren't going to die on an episodic basis, but the ones for his future,
- Arthur dying.

So I really should be working on the fifty thousand other things I'm trying to write at the moment, but I really can't resist...

I'd like to claim two of the options from 4 por favor - Arthur turning into a squirrel (SUCH a genius idea, I just hope I can do it justice!) and Merlin BEFRIENDING AN OWL NAMED ARCHIMEDES BECAUSE OH MY THAT JUST SOUNDS SO AWESOME!

Wow. Ridiculously excited about these two ideas. 'Scuse me, got some writing to do!

Eeep! You have NO IDEA how excited I am! Yay! Thank you for claiming.
