Attention Merlin fans! And also everyone else! No seriously, everyone. "Pairing Pendragon/Merlin". If you have somehow missed this fic amidst the storm of people recommending it... um, take my recommendation. Read it. You definitely don't need to be a fan of the show to enjoy it. It's just... it's like the Fandom Manifesto, or something. And so meta it's like a full plate of meta with meta on the side and sweet creamy meta on top. It's fabulous.
