Introducing Merthur Glompfest 2020!

Welcome to the new, reincarnated Merthur Glompfest 2020!

Are you a lurker, a reader, a commenter, a supporter of fanworks, or a hoster of fests? If so, prepare to be glomped!

This year, we’re bringing back glompfest to the Merlin fandom in the form of Merthur Glompfest! Your hosts are schweet_heart and fifty-fifty.dreamwidth.org and we, along with the rest of the Merthur fandom, want to give back and show our appreciation to all you wonderful people who make posting our creations so rewarding. After all, without you guys, we would have no one to create for!

We would love for you to get involved, so get your thinking caps on! Is there a Merthur idea that you’ve never seen done before, but would love to see written? Is there a trope that you just can’t get enough of (THERE WAS ONLY ONE BED!)? Or an image in your head that you’d love to see on paper (or digital canvas)?

If so, check out our FAQs, help us to promote the fest, and we hope to receive your prompts shortly!

Thank you, Merthur fandom! ♥

Gift for mega_mathi | Better with You | by Leandra
[ Explicit | 15344 ]
Summary:  Arthur is having a terrible day full of bad news, misfortune and a mouthy and irritating manservant. Strangely enough, it’s a rather surprising altercation with said irritating manservant that turns the day around and soon, Arthur is convinced that having Merlin in his bed is the remedy to cure all his horrible days…

Gift for broken_fannibal | Breaking Points | by elirwen
[ Teen & Up | 2595 ]
Summary: His magic bound, their captors ruthless in their torture, Merlin needs to find a way to get both Arthur and himself to freedom.

Gift for KimliPan | Broken Days, A Guide and How To Manual | by arsenicandsunshine
[ Teen & Up | 20652 ]
Summary: In which if Merlin has to see the cracked gray of his bedroom ceiling one more time, he’s gonna scream. Or punch someone. Maybe the wall. Definitely Arthur, who can’t seem to find the words to say what he wants to, but after the morning Merlin’s had, whatever it was can’t possible help.

Word Count: 49526
Summary: With King Uther dead, the moment Merlin has been waiting for is finally here: Arthur is king.

By: Elizabeth
Gift for:  SeverusBarbosa
Rating: Mature
Word Count: 13645
Summary: Merlin and Gwaine return from the Crusades to find Prince Agravaine and the Sheriff of Nottingham terrorizing the local peasants.
Arthur and Gwen never wanted to be a part of a corrupt ruling class, but it's the card fate has dealt them.

Merlin, though, isn't one to sit back and let it happen, so he and Morgana make a plan: steal from the rich and give to the poor. Together with their merry men, they're the stuff of legends.But being Robin Hood becomes more complicated when one falls for Arthur and the other falls for Gwen.
