Forget, wedding, Amy
Title: No More (Albion Falls)
Name: Diana Prallon
Rating: NC-17/E
Character/Pairings: Arthur/Merlin; Arthur; Merlin; Gaius; Gwen; Mordred; Leon
Word Count: 14518
Warnings: [Major Character Death; Non-Con; Graphic Violence; Torture]

Notes: Abandon hope all ye who enter here.

I don't think I've ever written anything so consistently dark, so you're all forewarned.

My eternal thanks to both Dark_K and Liafail for all their help in this, in giving their opinions and in proof-reading, betaing, and what-not. I shall never forget the worthy sacrifice of your tears. Special thanks for Liafail for giving away the plot to me. I hope this is up to your (angsty) standards. I should also thank everyone in the Merlin-chat, for their continuous support and company in GSD-ing; and of course, everyone in Merlin_Writers for word wars that helped in writing this much.

How to Post--2015
By now all of you that have checked in should have received confirmation of your posting date. If you haven't or have any other issues, please contact us as soon as possible.

The following are the different ways you can post to the fest:

Archive of Our Own
In order to be featured in this year's AO3 collection, you must make sure you connect your work. the easiest way is to click on the "Post to Collection" button, and then post your work like usual. If your story has any warnings attached to it, make sure you post them somewhere in your author's notes.

Livejournal Community
First, make sure you have already joined the community. Then, on your posting date, post an entry with your Subject being listed as something like, "FIC: [fic title]" or "ART: [art title]". As for the main entry itself, use the following format:

Title: [title of piece]
Name: [Your name]
Warnings: [You can use the spoiler tags if you wish]
Notes: [Author/Artist notes, if applicable]

If you're posting your work directly to the community, then it must be placed under a LJ-Cut. If providing a link to work posted elsewhere, you just need to post a link at the end of your entry, such as "Here @ Tumblr" or "Posted at AO3"

(You can implement the tags system, but it's not necessary, as we can add tags to the entry for you. If there's a character tag missing from our list, feel free to mention it in your notes and we'll sort that out for you.)

When posting your work on tumblr, make sure you tag it with "merlin horror" so we can reblog it on the main tumblr and (if you have selected as such), post it to the main Livejournal community. If we somehow miss your tumblr post, please let us know by submitting a link to the post.

If you are posting your work elsewhere without crossposting your link at either AO3, LJ, or tumblr, please don't forget to send us the link so we can share it at the LJ community and/or tumblr community (if you are okay with us sharing the link).

If you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment here (all comments are screened), send us a PM on the mod account, send us an ask on the tumblr account, or send us an email at!

Check In--2015
Do I have to turn my work in now?
-- Nope! You don't have to email what you have, this is just a confirmation that you're still interested in posting and want to be assigned a posting date.

Are you going to give everyone their posting date?
-- We're going to try to accommodate everyone as best as we can! But please have 3 possible choices for dates!

I'm working with someone else. Do we each have to check in?
-- That's not necessary! As long as one of you checks in and lists all the people that are involved with the piece, that's fine!

I'm posting multiple fills. Do I have to check-in for each one?
-- No, you can check in once for multiple fills.

How long before I receive a confirmation of my posting date?
-- You should receive an email with your confirmed posting date shortly afterwards, but please bear with us. If you check in and still don't have a confirmed posting date by October 17th, please contact us right away.

Once I check in, then what do I do?
-- Finish up any last minute changes before you post! On October 17th, we'll have a post explaining the different ways you can post to the fest.

Ready to check in? Then fill out the form HERE.

If you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment here (all comments are screened), send us a PM on the mod account, send us an ask on the tumblr account, or send us an email at!

Can I sign up for more than one thing?
-- Of course! Check how many or little options you want, or let us know in the questions box your plans on doing more than one piece. No need to fill out more than one form though!

I'm not really sure what I want to do yet. Can I still sign up?
-- Sure! Just check the "Undecided" box for now.

Do I have to a Livejournal/Tumblr account to sign up?
-- If you only have one or the other, or only an Archive Of Our Own Account, that's fine! We can work around it!

Can two or more people sign up together?
-- Yep! Just have both people sign up, and leave a comment explaining you're collaborating together.

Do I have to let you know what prompt I've chosen?
-- Not at all! Once you fill out the form, you can create whatever your horror your heart desires; no need to let us know what you're planning.

If I sign-up but later have to drop for some reason, do I have to let you know?
-- It'll be nice, but not necessary. If you don't respond to the check-in post that will be posted in October, then we'll just automatically consider you dropped.

Interested? Then fill out the form HERE.

If you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment here (all comments are screened), send us a PM on the mod account, send us an ask on the tumblr account, or send us an email at!

What is Donate-A-Prompt?
-- Say you have an idea for a fanfiction, fanart, fanvid, etc that would like to see, you can leave a description about it here.

How many can I leave?
-- Feel free to submit as many prompts as you would like, but please restrict one prompt per comment.

Can I leave pairings/kinks/etc with my prompt?
-- You can leave suggestions, like, "I would love it if this was Merlin/Arthur", however, please realize that these prompts are more an inspiration that a strict guideline, therefore ratings, pairings, kinks, etc. can be changed depending on the creator. If you want something to follow your prompt to the letter, this is probably not the best place to do it.

Instead of writing out a prompt, can I leave a single word/video/picture prompt instead?
-- Of course! We just ask that if you post something that was originally a fan-creation (fanart, gif set, fanvid, etc) that you ask the creator for permission first. (Please let us know in your prompt, as simple as "this fanart is by so-and-so, and they gave permission to have it be used as prompt. Please do this as well if you create something without prompting it here first.)

When does prompting end?
-- While this post won't officially close, just be aware the chance of someone selecting your prompt will be lower as time goes on.

Can we post a prompt anonymously?
-- Yep. You can also submit through our tumblr.

Should we put warnings on our prompts?
-- Please do, especially if it talks about common triggers, such as noncon, death, gore, etc. Just list the warnings in the Subject line of the comment or as part of the prompt; ex: "The prompt contains mentions of blood, death, gore, and necromancy."

Do I have to put my prompt here if I want to use it later?
-- Not at all! If you have your own idea, you don't have to share it here. This is more for ideas you don't think you'll ever create yourself but would still like to see.

If you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment here (all comments are screened), send us a PM on the mod account, send us an ask on the tumblr account, or send us an email at!

Please give them all your attention if you haven't already, and thank you again for a wonderful fest!

FIC: Uninvited
Title: Uninvited
Name: neuroticnick
Prompt #: 5 [Prompt]Arthur moves into a new house. There are weird noises at night, it's always freezing, and things start moving around. Not to mention the neighbours let themselves whenever they see fit because they were 'friends with the old owner.' At first Arthur is annoyed, then he's scared. The only comfort he has is one of the neighbours, Merlin, but then Merlin starts to act weird too.

Rating: NC-17
Character(s)/Pairing(s): Merlin/Arthur
Wordcount: 31320
Warnings: Major character death, mentions of drug use
Summary: When Arthur moves to Ealdor, he does not expect A) his house to be mercilessly cold, B) a neighbour that aggressively makes tea every morning, or C) the secret that’s hidden away in the loft.
Notes: Thanks to A for the quick and thorough beta, and G for feeling out the overall creepiness factor.
