    Summary

    Merlin is a recent graduate with a double doctorate in metaphysics and physics. Arthur is a low-level paper pusher with a desk in the sub-basement of MI5. They live in a world with ridiculous laws and restrictions against anyone who might be supernatural in any way, shape, or design.

    Merlin has huge debts looming over this head, a few quid left in his bank account, and no job prospects. Arthur is pushing thirty, in a dead-end job with no chances of promotion to fieldwork agent, and is thoroughly bored with his life.

    One ill-advised Craigslist advert, five pushy mates, one nosy all-knowing sister, and a hacked email account later, Merlin and Arthur take the world by storm.

    (Or, more precisely, they take over the world.)

    Bookmarker's Notes

    This universe is brilliantly crafted, the characterization is amazing for a fic that’s this AU, and the plot rises and falls in a single graceful arc, resolving itself neatly at the end. It’s a fun read, and I’m so glad I found it again.

    Summary

    Arthur doesn't care much about the popular radio program Dragon's Lonely Hearts until his ex-girlfriend calls in to slag him off and get advice. When he calls in and has an on-air argument with the host, it starts off more than he expected, including meddling friends, overinvolved fans, and maybe love.

    In which an argument about Dickens leads to a Twitter scandal, broken bones, midnight conversations, and transatlantic longing.

    (Or, an AU with Arthur and Merlin as moderately famous authors.)
