Notes/comments: I made this for the [livejournal.com profile] yuletart gift exchange for [livejournal.com profile] chen_san, originally posted here. Art betas were [personal profile] goss and [personal profile] vito_excalibur. It is set in the future. After Arthur becomes king Merlin swears an oath of fealty in a commendation ceremony to him.

Please do not distribute my art without my permission, i.e. do not upload my art to other sites, services, archives, or wikis. That includes "reblogging" the images themselves on services such as Tumblr.

ratcreature: RatCreature as Merlin (merlin)
I don't really rewatch eps often, so I usually can't place when we see what and such, but I know others are awesomely detail oriented when it comes to canon. So, could anyone tell me in which Merlin eps we get the best looks at the throne room? I mean the large, mostly empty hall with the more elaborate throne, iirc, not the smaller hall that we often see with tables. I'd really like some good visual reference for it.
ratcreature: Squee!! (squee!!)
I suspect all of Merlin fandom but me has seen these already because they were posted over a month ago, but in case you have missed them just as I did, [livejournal.com profile] shiyasim drew some brilliant Merlin strips in the style of Calvin and Hobbes, with them as kids: three strips here and four more here.

I've toyed with the idea of a futurefic recs page a couple of times, but never really managed properly collect enough recs at once to make starting a page worthwhile, while at the same time remembering all futurefic I liked in recent years more systematically seemed daunting. Now I decided to just start with a post in my LJ picking some at random, and maybe create a page later (or not). So because I went through my bookmarks looking for futurefic I remembered liking, some are older stories, others recent.

Harry Potter

Squib, by Kestrelsparhawk. Slash, Harry/Draco. (ca. 52,000 words)
It's been a while since I read this so I'm a bit fuzzy on the details, but I remember really enjoying it. It is a long, plotty story with Harry as a parent, and I especially liked the magical theory here.


Mount Badon, by Betty. Gen. (ca. 3,380 words)
I really like the outsider POV here, showing Arthur and Merlin and a glimpse of how Arthur is building his kingdom.

Walking into Legend, by Lesserstorm. Slash and het, Merlin/Arthur, Gwen/Lancelot. (ca. 11,700 words)
This combines established Arthurian Legend elements with the Merlin version, and I liked how their friendship got them all a happier ending than in the traditional version, yet in many ways their "public" cover story would fit with that.

Stargate: Atlantis

Eternity, by Kriadydragon. Het, John Sheppard/OFC. (ca. 29,350 words)
Atlantis as an exploration ship is just cool.

Beginnings, by Riva. Gen. (ca. 928 words)
This story is a bit older, and now this possible future is rather jossed by canon, but I always thought the Ori would have had great success in the Pegasus galaxy.

Panthalassa and its sequel Pangeneses, by Sapote3. Slash and het, Rodney McKay/Laura Cadman, Rodney McKay/John Sheppard. (ca. 14,500 words and 16,000 words)
This is kidfic with a twist, and especially in the sequel I liked to see the future of Pegasus after the Wraith and its struggles.

Salve regina, by Sarah T. John Sheppard/Teyla Emmagan. (ca. 6,495 words)
This has a bit of a creepy premise for the future, but I liked it.

Who's Left and Who's Leaving, by the_drifter. Gen. (ca. 9,500 words)
This story is a bit heart-wrenching, because the team leaves Atlantis behind, but I like all kinds of stories in which expedition members decide to stick with Pegasus and settle there.
ratcreature: X-Mas: RatCreature as Santa. (xmas)
Fandom: SGA/Merlin/Numb3rs
Characters/Pairings: John Sheppard, Rodney McKay, Merlin, Arthur Pendragon, Don Eppes, Charlie Eppes

Rating/warnings: G, Christmas themes?
Notes/comments: I felt like trying something cartoon-style that didn't involve big-nosed creatures, so I picked my currently favorite fandoms and forced the poor characters into a Christmas card... *G*
