Rating: NC-17
Pairings: Merlin/Arthur, Gwen/Lancelot
Summary: This time Arthur's secret is bigger than Merlin's. No need to let the whole world in on it. At least that's the plan. But plans don't always work out the way you want them to.

Thoughts: Okay, so I have quite a big thing for serial killer AUs and oh wow. It's the first part in a series (a short missing scene was actually posted today \o/) and written for a Merlin Horror Fest prompt, involving one of the boys being a serial killer and the other one finding out and joining in, hehe. At first I was hoping Merlin would be the original murderer (IDK why I have preferences for this kind of thing, I just thought it suited Merlin better tbh XD) but I came round pretty quickly. It's dark and a bit twisted, but very interesting imo. Merlin and Arthur aren't evil--they just sort of see themselves above the law. It's pretty hot with 'Dom/sub overtones', and there's a significant age-difference between Merlin and Arthur.

I'm not going to say that this is a fic that everyone will love, but I certainly enjoyed it :3 Make you sure you read the warnings and stuff (there are a few). Also, though, the Gwen/Lancelot is pretty lovely. They are the 'good guys', and it's actually a little hard to decide whether you WANT Merlin and Arthur to be caught...ultimately, you don't. It got to the point where I was trying to justify them with 'THEY CAN KILL IF IT MAKES THEM HAPPY THEY ONLY WANT TO BE HAPPY'.

Idk, it's an odd read, but I am highly recommending it.
