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!)

Here we go. I have a few, Um.

1. Arthur/Merlin: Either man gets amnesia. Bonus points for both men having a relationship already before this. Which of course means that the one with the amnesia does not remember. Which of course means ANGST. Okay, not really. But it's another bonus point. MORE BONUS points if the one with amnesia thinks he's whatever age these two are in season one. (Yes, I know there are a lot of bonus points in this request. Lol.)

2. Arthur/Merlin: I've seen this idea used a lot in other fandoms, mainly Harry Potter. Baby! Merlin or Arthur, anyone?

3. Arthur/Merlin/MORDRED: (Yes, you read that right, MORDRED). Um. Merlin is court magician and all, Camelot is in happy times, blah blah, enter Mordred. A nice, sweet, albeit kind of intense, you know the drill, Mordred. Arthur is besotted, Merlin is not. Or, you can make Merlin the besotted, and Arthur not. But I think it will work better the other way, as we all know Merlin knows about Mordred. Angst, hate, love, betrayal, sex, lust. Yeah.

4. Arthur/Lancelot + Merlin: Not really a threesome. A more Voyeur!Merlin, you know, catching some action one night. If you want to make a threesome though, after Merlin watches, go for it! I'll give you TRILLION BONUS POINTS! And lots and lots of cookies.

5. Arthur/Merlin OR Gen: Morgana (or Mordred, or both) is poisoning Merlin. This takes place after Morgana joins with Mordred and the Druids, etc. It starts with coughs. Nothing really bad. Then it starts with dizzyness. Nothing to worry about, not really. Then aches and pains, then diahhrea, then actually fainting spells. Then coughing out blood. Then *gasp*, coma. There is a pattern here, yes. Everyone is worried. Gaius (yes, he is STILL ALIVE, the old bugger) says that it's the work of magic. What must Arthur do? Will Merlin survive? Slash or gen, your choice!

6. Arthur/Merlin: They have a falling out. How it happens, that's your choice. I like to think it's because Arthur doesn't accept Merlin's magic and everything. Merlin leaves Camelot, of his own free will. And no, no one is after his blood or what not. Years pass. Many. About 10. Something big, I dunno, the death of someone Merlin loves, someone is sick and wants to see him, I'm not sure, prompts Merlin to come back, kind of against his own free will. This may seem OOC of Merlin, but he still resents Arthur and kind of hates him. As for how Arthur feels after so long...up to you. I like to think he may be happy, albeit a little resentful because Merlin LEFT. But this is up to you. :)

7. Arthur/Merlin: Arthur dreams. Of all the times Merlin saved his life. HE DOES NOT KNOW ABOUT HIS MAGIC. This is how fe finds out. Who sends the dreams, up to you. I like to think. A Mystery.

PHEW! I know, a lot, right? These are all the ones I have wanted to write and never will. So please, oh fabulous writers, take them?
