Oh, hey, look it’s my Merlin big bang!
Title: Not In This Land Alone
Pairing: Merlin/Arthur, Merlin/Will, Gwen/Lancelot
Warnings: mild violence, depictions of terrorism
Summary: Modern AU. When Merlin Emrys gets a summer job at Buckingham Palace, he doesn't expect to even meet King Arthur, let alone become involved in protecting him from a plot to overthrow the monarchy.
Disclaimer: Not mine, Merlin belongs to the BBC. And apologies to the Danish and Dutch royal families; it was nothing personal.
Author’s Notes: This one took an absolute village: zarah5 was enthusiastic about this from the start, miscellanny kicked me into a gear a million times when I started to flag, janne_d, doctor_denmark and threequarters all jumped in for last minute beta duties to stop me freaking out, and my mum was always on hand with answers about the royal family even if she had no real idea what she was enabling. Thank you all ♥
Art: willowbell made me adorably precious art, which you can find here and a mix which is here!
And, because this is the fic for amazing fangirls rescuing stranded Tora, the fantastically kind and talented lamardeuse spotted my stray typos and made me cover art (go here to tell her it's awesome!):
