Companion, Merlin/Arthur (PG)  
Title: Companion
Author: valderys
Pairing: Merlin/Arthur
Rating: PG
Word Count: 1,574
Notes: Written for my ‘roleplay/au (prostitution)’ prompt for kinkbingo. This was inspired by Firefly, btw, rather than being a direct crossover!
Art: Now with fantastic art by slanted_edges, OMG! Look here!
Summary: Camelot is a small colony out on the Rim, and they don’t get many luxuries, so when a Guild-trained Companion visits and Governor Pendragon buys their services for his son – well, Arthur is no position to refuse.

Wow - I really enjoyed this! So sensuous. I'd missed it, but thankfully slanted_edges artwork led me to it.

There's a couple of other fics I've got promised, but I may well turn my attention this way after I've finished them! Here's hoping the bunnies hop my way!

This is lovely! Nice fusion of the two universes!

Cheers, m'dear! It was an image that wouldn't go away. And now has been made beautifully concrete by slanted_edges - yay!

“I’ve been told I should practice my knee-walking,” said Merlin, “In particular. What do you think?”

hehehehehehehehe. &hearts

Here was I trying to give some hints of their first meeting in the show - it's quite hard trying to imagine a Merlin that talks a bit like Inara! :)

This is great, love Arthur's stream-of-consciousness and the way you make Merlin both seductive and comfortable. Am so reccing.
Valderys: Merlin - prettier than Arthurvalderys on August 28th, 2009 03:29 pm (UTC)
Aww, thanks again, hon! It was actualy quite a fine line to walk - trying to write Merlin like Inara, but still being Merlin, if you know what I mean!

Tee-hee, this was cute & hot. Haha, and I'm left wondering whether Merlin's last bit of dialogue was genuine, or a Companion Line. XD

Not intentionally, my Firefly knowledge is not encyclopedic :) It was more meant to be a hint to our Merlin and Arthur's destiny...

wow, I love it, even though I don't know Firefly.
I really like the description and the bottomtwo paragraphs, especially.It was very sweet.
Valderys: Merlin - prettier than Arthurvalderys on April 12th, 2010 01:17 pm (UTC)
You should go see Firefly - it's a classic! And I wrote this mainly because I couldn't get the image out of my mind :)

I just found this amongst my 'to read' book marks. Definitely a pleasant surprise! Merlin and Arthur fit very well into Firefly-type universe, and this story really makes me want to see more of them there.
Valderys: Merlin - prettier than Arthurvalderys on April 12th, 2010 01:18 pm (UTC)
There is a vague plan in the back of my head to write more for them, so it will happen sometime, I promise! I'm glad you liked it once you found it again - yay!
