Title: Line of dance
Author: [ profile] thismaz - Maz
Artist: [ profile] choco_souffle
Pairings: Arthur/Merlin, established relationship.
Characters: The court of Camelot and all its members.
Rating: NC-17 I think.
Word Count: 43,350
Warnings: Mention of the rape and murder of a female OC, description (but not depiction) of medieval justice/punishment, minor character death in battle.
Summary: Arthur has come to the throne. He needs to establish himself and demonstrate his difference from his father. Too soon, a murder changes everything and Arthur has to go to war.
Author's note 1: Goes AU some time after The Tears of Uther Pendragon, but before the last episodes of the third series, since Cenred is still King of Escetia and Lancelot is not in Camelot.
Author's note 2: My very great thanks to [ profile] llama1412 for the beta, particularly for pointing out the major problem in the structure of the start. And especially to [ profile] sparrow2000 for being my best friend, sounding board, plot bunny wrangler and voice of calm common sense. Also, to DJ, for (hopefully) catching the last few typos. If you spot any more that we all missed, feel free to let me know in comments.

for the Merlin big bang.

I have never done a challenge, or a fest, or anything like that, except the two years on [ profile] tamingthemuse.

30,000 words suddenly seems like an awful lot. But I've got until August, so it will be alright. Right?

I signed up as a beta, too, since they only have a few volunteers so far. I think I might be crazy *g*
