Every Story is a Love Story is a Merlin/Arthur Modern AU by lady_ragnell. It was written for a kinkme_merlin prompt.[1]

Summary: Camelot Publishing publishes romance novels, and when Arthur founds a new imprint of gay romance and invites his best friend and pet writer Merlin to write for it, it's a bit too easy to miss the fact that apparently he's living in one.

Recs and Reviews

  • "This fic is beautifully written, well paced, and an absolute joy to read. Arthur is so immersed in the ‘trade and marketability’ of romance, he’s oblivious to the epic love story he’s currently living. The angst in this is very light and the UST sizzles. Also both Merlin and Arthur are crazy adorable in the way they dance around each other. Not to mention I absolutely LOVE reading about Merlin as an erotic author and Arthur editing his sex scenes."[2]
  • "I'm such a sucker from oblivious Arthur fics and this one is shaping up perfectly. Merlin and Arthur's relationship is adorable and the supporting cast are all present and acting as the perfect foil for Arthur and Merlin. Also, something tickles me about a romance set in this setting."[3]
  • "Basically, Arthur is head of a Harlequin erotica-type publishing company and Merlin is his top writer. AND THERE IS WRITING OF GAY PORN? THE FEELS IDEK. And as Jen said, “omg editor arthur ;A; it’s like rl author/beta pendragon things”"[4]
