A couple belated recs

errant_jane wrote me an amazing prequel to her bigbang story . The prequel centers on Misha and Clare's relationship--how they first met. (The fandom is CWRPS, for those of you who didn't read the original story). The original story itself is mostly J2 with a side of Jensen/JDM, but had a pretty amazing Misha Collins paired with the best OC I've ever read in RPS--Clare--so I asked errant_jane to please write me a story about how they met. It's hilarious and wonderful and has made me fall even more in love with Clare, and I think everybody should read it and tell her how much they loved it so she will write more Clare. And I'm sorry this rec comes so long after the story was posted--I think I was either hibernating or having work craziness that week and it slipped through the cracks.


Also, for the three people in fandom who haven't already read it, pandarus finished her epic Merlin/Arthur AU The Student Prince last weekend, and I devoured it whole in one sitting (all 150,000 words of it), because it is just that good. I'm not in Merlin fandom and have only seen a couple episodes of the show, but this was really the best love story I've read in ages, and probably my favorite college fic of all time. It's set at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland, and a lot of the fun of the story is seeing Merlin, Gwen and Arthur go through all the traditions associated with the school, but I think what I loved most about the story is how well it captures the sense of adventure and possibility associated with leaving home for the first time and getting to make your own choices.

I've never seen a single episode of Merlin, but dine recced that story last week and I read the whole thing in one go and nearly cried. I love it when stories are so well-done and so accessible that even someone who has never seen the show can read and love.

Yes, definitely. That's one thing I love about certain kinds of AUs--you don't need to know the fandom. And pandarus is such a good writer I would read any fandom she writes in, but it's nice when it's accessible.
