The Crown of the Summer Court

Author : astolat

Rating : NC17

Summary : "The king sent me to get you," Merlin said, with a tone that implied strongly that he wasn't rolling his eyes where Arthur could see, but just wait until his back was turned. "He said you're to get changed into formal clothes and meet him in the Great Hall, there's a delegation coming from the Summer Court."

Why I loved it : It was probably the first fic in the Merlin fandom that really left a mark on me. Since then I re-read it at least 5 more times and each time, I fell in love with the universe depicted in that fic. The relationship with Merlin and Arthur is perfect, the Elves are wonderfully described and the story itself is captivating!

Let's see: Forgot all about the bread, ham and cheese I had put on the kitchen counter, and all the things I needed to pack - and should have had read now - are still very much unpacked. And I certainly have not written a word of fanfic while I sat here, which I thought I might do while munching on some food.

So yes, very captivating story. Lovely, all of it. <3

I think I must have read a part of this before, but it was nice to read it from start to finish.

Yes, these kind of things happen when you start reading such a great fic! ;-)

I've never read this fic - or any Merlin fics - but I popped in to say that I LOVE astolat's fics!! Their characterization is out of this world, and their plot-building ability is amazing. One of my all-time favourite writers.

Yes, they are!! And even if you're not in the Merlin fandom, this fic should be enjoyable to read!

Also, I'm happy to see you around! <3

I've never watched Merlin though, so would I be able to understand/enjoy the story? I literally know nothing about the characters except that Merlin is a magician and Arthur is a prince.

Same to you! I randomly decided to check my friends page - I don't know how long it's been since I've done that - and I was happy to see that you're still posting. Are you still keeping up with Real Madrid?

Yes! Madridista till the end! ;-) Though I don't always have time to watch all the matches :-(

Yeah same but I've actually been watching more lately. I can't catch Champions League matches since they're on weekdays though. And sadly we're out of the Copa :( And Cris' form hasn't been great, I worry for his self-criticism more than anything.
