OK, so I said I was gonna get better about rec'ing stuff I love, and while I am still working on my next art rec post, I wanted to take a quick minute to rec The Other Half of My Heart.
It's an anon story written for camelotremix
. It's a remix of corilannam
's brilliant fic "The Pact".
This fic is a beautiful compliment to the original, taking Arthur's POV and giving us the backstory of these lovers-at-cross-purposes. If you loved the original, go check this out. If you never read the original, STILL go check this out, you won't regret it (then get your butt over to cori's story cuz it's all kinds of awesome.)Summary:
The Albion Pact demands that the Prince of Wales must take someone magic born as his soul-bonded consort by the time he is thirty or face death.
Prince Arthur Pendragon's thirtieth birthday has come and gone and he is getting sicker by the day. With little time left to act, Arthur knows what he must do to save himself: he has to call in a boyhood promise made by Merlin Emrys, his best friend and very talented Detective Inspector Warlock...the same best friend Arthur's been in love with for half his life.
But how can Arthur ask the man he loves more than anything to give up everything he's worked so hard for? Arthur is not sure that he can...and the indecision just might kill him.
