Summary: Circus Camelot has a building it doesn't own, a trick rider who just ran off to do panto, and a serious sponsor problem. Fortunately, it also has Merlin Emrys, master illusionist, and Arthur Pendragon, prince of tumblers.

Review:
C'mon, it's Merlin. IN A CIRCUS. This manages to take some of my favorite (non-kinky) fic tropes (CIRCUSES, leader!Arthur, meddling!Kilgarrah and modern-day settings), stir it together with Sam's trademark writerly awesomeness and produces a fic that manages to capture the glamour of the circus with the drama of trying to stay in business in the 21st century. Top that off with plenty of Arthur/Merlin tension and schmoop, some amazing scenes with Merlin the Illusionist and Kilgarrah as a Hollywood exec, and you have a darn good fic, mi amigos.
