Wedding of the Century Decked out in Ivory and Gold

mood: pleased=)

By Lilian Cho, reporting for The Camelot Times



Last Saturday came the highly anticipated wedding of Arthur Pendragon and Merlin Emrys. This exclusive event is even more fashion-conscious than the Beckhams' wedding.

"Please, Posh Spice and that footballer is so last century," Arthur's stepsister Morgana LeFay said. A fashion designer swiftly rising in fame, LeFay designed Emrys' stunning ivory number as a wedding present.

"It's not a dress," 24-years-old Emrys could be heard insisting at various points of the ceremony. "If Merlin wants to wear a dress to his dream wedding, I'm the last person who'd stop him," said Pendragon, who had opted for the more conventional tuxedo route. "Besides, he looks hot in that dress."

Famous singer Gwen, looking radiant in a LeFay dress of gold beads, congratulated the couple. "I'm so happy for Arthur and Merlin! We're actually surprised they didn't tie the knot sooner." Gwen was accompanied by her artist boyfriend, Lancelot duLac.

"It's about time my son made an honest man out of his personal assistant," said Uther Pendragon, CEO of Pendragon, inc. Also in attendance was Emrys' mother Hunith. "I could tell Merlin was in love from the way he complained about Arthur. I've always thought Arthur is a kind, polite young man."

Seen a few Merlin/HP x-overs, but no Merlin!Harry yet. And I don't like Harry that much, so =/

But there was a Merlin!Draco fic written a few years ago before BBC Merlin came out! That one was cute <3

Merlin in Hogwarts pastiche

Hmm, Harry as Merlin's reincarnation you mean? I suppose it depends on which personality you want to emphasize.

It's Dudley.

Haha, yet another pastiche, huh?

Merlin = Harry
Uther = Vernon Dursley
Arthur = an amalgation of Dudley Dursley and Draco Malfoy =P
Gaius = crazy cat lady Mrs Figgs. Or, McGonagall
Gwen = an amalgation of Ron and Ginny
Morgana = OH WAIT MORGANA IS DRACO. Or a combination of Draco, Pansy and Hermione.
Slash Dragon = Dumbledore
Nimueh = Idk what about Bellatrix =DDD
Mordred = ...Tom Riddle. Or, a gazillion times cooler than Voldemort.
Lancelot = an amalgation of Cedric and...uh...Percy.
Undead!Tristan = Bloody Baron
Undead!Ygraine = the Grey Lady
Tom the blacksmith = an amalgation of Mr Weasley and...hmm...Remus.
dead!Hunith = an amalgation of Lily and Andromeda or smth.

...why am I seriously considering this? I already have a Merlin x HP crossover X_x;;

what about

gwen = ron
merlin's friend from his village whatever his name is, the dead one = hermione
dragon = dumbledore's phoenix. cos we all know dumbledore is just the phoenix's meatpuppet and doesn't actually have a will of his own =p
dragon also = hagrid
Morgana = Mcgonagall (she'd have to be younger than Mcgonagall really is 'm afraid. maybe her daughter who's now a teacher too?)
Gaius = Snape
Nimueh = Tom Riddle
Mordred = Draco, perfectly embodying the love-hate relationship between merlin and mordred and harry and draco XD

who's the Grey Lady? oO

It'd be fun XD sort of a "what would they do in a situation like this?" plus merlin would make a more tolerable harry.

Oh right, forgot about Will. I think he's more of a FredandGeorge rly.

Meatpuppet just sounds wrong O_o

Mmm, in my book Hagrid can just die.

Well Merlin doesn't care much about Mordred beyond a little boy to save and someone who'll kill Arthur. H & D are more petty schoolboy rivalry & obsession.

Grey Lady = Ravenclaw ghost.


It'd be fun yes, but if I'm rewriting HP I'd rather write BoyWhoLived!Draco.

my boywholived pref rests firmly with neville.

meatpuppet is wrong *g*

i like to think merlin is at once hopelessly in love with and horrified by mordred. the adoration is like his affair with the unicorn, zomgitsmagicandbeautiful! and then horrified because only right at the end only does he realise what he has done, which seems to me pretty much the way things started out between harry and draco (on the first train ride: zomg new friends with magic cool! oh wait, you're a prat)

Yeah, but there are sooo many BoyWhoLived!Neville and not a single Draco one =P

Hm yes I can totally buy that.

i replied to the wrong thread =O

but also, i imagine cousin arthur sneaking into merlin's trunk to sneak to school with him, either to 1. piss of his dad and cut school for himself (not understanding that "magic" is real) or 2. rescue poor weak merlin from the clutches of these vile sorcerers because he's too much a pansy to do it himself

Watch it. At the v. least, you'll get the lulz =DDD

Mm, Colin Morgan reminds me of two different friends:
- a Taiwanese guy who has the same haircut and deceptively innocent face like Merlin
- this tall skinny vegetarian guy (Caucasian) whose sense of humor you need to work a little to understand


Also, will def. read & comment on your Worldcup fic, sorry that I haven't yet!

Haha, no rush. XD I understand that when you're in another fandom, getting back to your old one is somewhat hard.

Also, the guy I know looks just like him--I wouldn't know much about the personality though. XD

I promise to watch it next week. *u* I'm done with uni after all. <3

Awesome!

"It's not a dress," 24-years-old Emrys could be heard insisting at various points of the ceremony. "If Merlin wants to wear a dress to his dream wedding, I'm the last person who'd stop him," said Pendragon,

That part is brilliant! Very 'them'.

When Merlin picked up a copy of The Camelot Times after much sweaty sex with Arthur at their undisclosed honeymoon location, the society news blurb started much sulking and begging (on Merlin's and Arthur's part, respectively).

Afterward, Arthur nibbled on Merlin's bottom lip in apology. Merlin relented and stopped pouting when Arthur pointed out that Merlin looked fabulous in the pictures.

"Prettier than Gwen?" Merlin peered at Arthur.

"Prettier than Gwen. And Morgana, even," Arthur said solemnly.

And all is well in the Pendragon-Emrys household once again. At least until Uther arrived demanding Arthur to come back to work immediately.

Merlin grew up dressing up his Ken doll in Barbie's white gown. When his mother questioned him, Merlin protested, "But Ken wants to look pretty too!"
