Dewiniaeth is a Merlin/Arthur genderswitch story by claire_debonair.

Summary: Nimueh is set on destroying the Pendragons, yet again. They do say hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, after all, and this time it's Merlin who bears the brunt of her scheming. Fairy tale princess he is not.

In this story Nimueh turns Merlin into a woman. He has to sleep with a man to turn back again, but not just any man will do; it has to be Arthur. The spell, of course, is designed to kill Arthur, which makes things a bit more complicated. The premise is similar to the later written Box of Magic story The Course of True Love by Puckling.

Recs and Reviews

  • "This is the best Merlin-gets-turned-into-a-girl!Genderbend + Magic-made-them-do-it story ever. You won’t find another quite like it. Highly recommend, especially if you like genderbends."[1]
