    Summary

    A Modern day Merlin AU set at the University of St Andrews, featuring teetotal kickboxers, secret wizards, magnificent bodyguards of various genders, irate fairies, imprisoned dragons, crumbling gothic architecture, arrogant princes, adorable engineering students, stolen gold, magical doorways, attempted assassination, drunken students, shaving foam fights, embarrassing mornings after, The Hammer Dance, duty, responsibility, friendship and true love...

    This story was inspired by the thought of Prince William of Wales (and indeed the current Max von Hapsburg) studying at the University of St Andrews; it is also, as the title suggests, at least a little inspired by the operetta 'The Student Prince'.

    Grateful thanks to Lamardeuse and DarkEmeralds for Beta and cheerleading!

    ::2019 note: This story was written BEFORE the TV show introduced the character of Gwaine. It's not that I can't spell, or that I'm perversely writing him out of character - I incorporated other characters from Arthurian legend (Kay, Gawain etc) into my story, and lacking prophetic abilities, my versions naturally don't mesh with the versions subsequently introduced into the show.::

    Summary

    “Shut your stupid mouth, Q, of course you’re not fine, none of us are fine,” Margo spits, tugging at his hair to make him look up, look at her big eyes filled with worry and a hint of fear. He looks behind her and sees Eliot, standing back, keeping his distance. Margo moves her head as if to shield Eliot from view and Quentin frowns at her.

    Or: 12k of healing, of a slow recovery, of finding your way forward in the after.

    Summary

    I'm not sure if anyone has put this up already, but if so I couldn't find it, and since it is such a delightful fic resource: here is a patchworked capture of Eliot's terrible-memories chalkboard, with a transcription (note that I'm not correcting his grammar). This isn't intended for art use--it's very visually hacked together and hideous--but I legitimately want a story about every item on this chalkboard, so here's the list.

    Summary

    There are a few things Sirius really didn't count on for Christmas of 1979. The extreme sexual confusion is one of them; Remus Lupin is approximately seventy-eight of the rest.

    Summary

    Hamlet shudders in Horatio's arms, his low cry a blessing. The unseen linden-leaves shake, wild with wanting.

    “Are you afraid?” Horatio gasps, his fingers fanned like wings in Hamlet's dark hair.

    Hamlet nods, smile disarmed, pressing their foreheads together. “But what of that?”

    It's then that Horatio knows his faith is branch and nest enough, whatever horrors may yet come to haunt them.
