The Joye of Sexe by Aleathiel (NC-17)

It's Small Fandom Week here at Epic Recs and I'm taking advantage of the newness of a fandom that I doubt will count as small for very much longer:)

Title: The Joye of Sexe
Fandom: Merlin
Pairing: Merlin/Arthur
Categories: humor, drama, pwp
Length: medium
Warnings: n/a

Author on LJ: aleathiel 
Website: n/a

After becoming Arthur's manservant, Merlin learns one thing very quickly: Arthur has a lot of sex. A *lot* of sex. Basically an entire castle's worth of sex. Unsurprisingly, Merlin doesn't take this very well.

Fair warning, this story borders on a PWP (what with the plotty bits taking up about a quarter of the story and the porny bits taking up the rest). That said, I quite like the bit of plot we do get, and I really like this story's version of Arthur: overconfident and a bit of a prat, but uncertain and shy when it comes to someone he really, truly likes. Couple that with Merlin being dense and a fantastic Uther (who cares for his son, but who is still an ass) and you have an all-around great read.

As someone who's trying to sip from the firehose that is the Merlin fic outpouring? Yeah, it won't be a small fandom for long. ;-) And I do love this one!

I've probably read a hundred or so Merlin fics *just last week*. And not one was good enough to put in my possible rec folder. This is the first time I've come into a fandom early enough that I'm reading everything written instead of just stories recced to me, and it's a very different experience than my first exposure to, say, SGA.

That said, I do have at least one more Merlin fic that I'll probably be reccing in the not-so-distant future and I know Mei has one as well, so it's certainly here to stay!

Yes, I'm having the exact same problem! I remember people talking about the crazy output in SG Atlantis; but I only ever read off of recs in that fandom, and even that was overwhelming. ;-)

I have two Merlin rec pages up in my journal, with s on my most favorites, if you want to skip some of the dreck. I'll probably rec a few in this small fandoms RR round, too.

Yay! Thank you! (Though I'll be quite impressed if you can recommend any stories I haven't read yet -- I'm pretty much reading anything that has even the slightest hint of Merlin/Arthur:)

Oh, I'll probably rec ones already on your list--I see Platform Shoes has already been recced in RR, which would be one of mine. :-)

Hey, there's no such thing as *too much* fandom love:)
