nonisland: Camelot in red and gold, with text "make your own destiny" ([Merlin] make your own destiny if you ca)
fandom: Merlin
rating: teen+ audiences
characters/pairings: Mithian/Vivian, Mithian&Rodor, Arthur/Vivian, mentions of Arthur/Gwen
length: ~7K words
content notices: deals heavily with canonical mind control and references canonical mutually non-consensual kissing due to same, also contains [discussed and agreed-upon in advance] kissing to break a spell
summary: Mithian is surprised at how much it hurts when Vivian comes back from Camelot talking of nothing but Arthur.
notes: Plot-compliant with 2.10 “Sweet Dreams”, but not quite with 4.11 “The Hunter’s Heart”. I owe a debt of gratitude to [archiveofourown.org profile] versaphile for their map of Albion, although I picked and chose as I wanted/needed from there and from canon both re: the layout of Albion. I would also like to thank [archiveofourown.org profile] lady_ragnell for continuing to be the most patient sounding board/cheer squad anyone could wish, for helping me sort out the politics of Albion, and for unsticking the story even before she beta-read it on appallingly short notice. Written for [livejournal.com profile] untold_legends, for the square “against all odds” on my [community profile] trope_bingo card, and for #6 (“Ours”) of [community profile] 100_women table #8. Title from Lady Gaga’s “No Floods”, because this is me writing Vivian. (I really ought to break that habit at some point.)
ao3 crosspost: here (contains additional worldbuilding natter in the endnotes)

And she’s too late, anyway, and a princess may love where she chooses but a queen never. It feels suddenly, terribly unfair that Mithian has made herself a queen-yet-to-be and never allowed herself to notice why she didn’t mind Vivian’s cheerful self-centeredness. )

New year, new fandoms, totally time to grab more prompt tables even though I have yet to completely fill any of the tables I have up. This duo is inspired by my having a fandom relapse into Merlin and tripping and falling into Atlantis (made by the same creative team) at approximately the same time, and thinking about lady interactions that should have happened--I won't absolutely hold myself to it if I come up with a fabulous alternative, but I am intending each prompt from these tables to be used for one or the other of these shows, set during canon era and mostly either episode-related or inspired-by-episode (though some might not be canon-compliant!).

Table squares will have the show, the lady/ladies and relationships (friendship or romance) if any, and LJ/DW/AO3 links. Table squares will not have content notices (please assume s1 spoilers for anything Atlantis); if you're browsing this table and would like to know, without going to the fics themselves, whether content notices apply(/which episodes specifically are spoiled), leave me a comment and I'll let you know as soon as I see it. The original tables, from [community profile] 100_women, can be found here.

The 10th in each is a writer's-choice space; I took the 8th & 9th prompts from table #5 and inserted them into tables #8 & 9, respectively.
